ok is this the plug you put where the filter goes,? Part 915426this is the filter bypass and should get water when this is in, if the filter was changed and this still leaks it has to be the water filter head thats bad. # XXXXX on this diagram, you need to call maytag,(which is now made by whirlpool) and demand they send out a different tech and fix this correctly, they will need to replace the filter head, it comes with new tubing, hope this helps, thanks Bryan

the damper shouldnt cause a water leak , this damper is for airflow from the freezer to the fresh food section, you need to get a new tech to look at this, I dont believe he knows what he's doing. is the water comming from the area of the filter?
