Question about Maytag Refrigerators

Open Question

When I take the water filter out of my Maytag Refrigerator, it sprays water, it has never done this before. When I put the new filter in the water flow from the dispenser is slow. I put the old filter back in with the same result, so I know it's not the filter. Does a valve need to be replaced or something? I am pretty handy, so I'm hoping it's something I can take care of myself instead of calling a repair person in. Thank you, Tina

SOURCE: Water flow on my Maytag ICE20 is very slow.

The orifice into the filter is getting clogged. A toothpick or small paperclip will clear it.

SOURCE: Old filter in and water

When you change your water filter you must purge the line to remove any air or it will continue to flow all over the floor use as large a container as possible it will require you to draw at least 2 gallons of water to purge air in line. -------- After connecting the refrigerator to water source or replacing the water filter, flush the water system. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue to press and release the dispenser bar (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) until a total of 3 gal. (12 L) has been dispensed. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the water filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in some households. As air is cleared from the system water may spurt out of the dispenser. ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have a Maytag French Door Bottom Freezer / Refrigerator. Model MFI2568AEW. I changed the water filter today and 10 seconds after installing the new filter it started making a very loud noise like


Sounds like water hammer, has the water supply got it's own shut-off valve behind the fridge or in the basement ? Try shutting the valve then open it just a little. Perhaps the water supply was opened fully after installing the new filter.

I put a new filter how do I reset


I have done some research and here are some steps to solve the problem: For Maytag and Jenn-Air refrigerators press and hold the lock and light buttons (lock and water on newer fridges) on the dispenser for about 4 seconds, until the indicator light blinks. Once it blinks release the buttons and the reminder light should be reset.

We just had a new RO Unit installed at our sink, and a line run to our Maytag fridge. The water filter is inside, at the top. We don't really need the filter anymore, as the RO water is more tha


Take the filter to the hardware store and get the necessary fittings (and maybe a short piece of tubing) to connect the in and out lines without the filter. Perhaps easier deal is a new filter which should NEVER become clogged on RO water.

There are two different types of Maytag brand water filters. Each one is removed in a different manner, depending entirely on where it is located in your refrigerator. There are two main locations. Select your filter location from the options below for specific removal and replacement directions.

  1. The upper right corner of the refrigerator compartment.


  2. In the center of the ceiling of the refrigerator compartment.

Bad smelling water


The water lines are contaminated with bacteria and/or mold. This is a problem with many refrigerators. You need to turn off water and disconnect the feed line and filter. Mix 4 ounces of Clorox(R) in 1 gallon of water and pump it through with a NEW garden sprayer. You can remove the wand and clamp it onto the water inlet. Activate the dispenser while you pump the bleach through the system. Once bleach starts coming out the dispenser, vent the garden sprayer (de-pressurize), Let the bleach sit for 15-20 minutes. Re-attached water using a brand new filter (do not use the old filter and do not put bleach through filter). Run water until no chlorine odor (it can be a while). This process needs to be done at least once a year.

Water is slow coming out from dispenser on a side by side Maytag


The water flows through the filter based upon the amount of debris already caught by the filter. Increasing the flow of water into the filter would not solve the problem. If you do not want to buy a new filter you can remove the present fiter and either operate without it oryou could put a larger filter in the supply line outside of the refrigerator.
