Maytag Side-by Side Water Problems


Water quality can cause ice makers to fail or produce unacceptable cubes. If mineral content or sand is a problem, the screen in the fill valve can restrict. A particle of sand can keep the valve from seating properly. Results will be small crescents (or no ice) or flooding of the ice container if the water valve does not close.

Mineral content can also lime up the mold causing wicking of water over the mold and poor cube release. Silicone is applied at the upper edges, around the fill cup and stripper.
