Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Is it the white front of the icemaker unit that is about 4+ inches square? If so, how does it come off?
Appliance Technician: esequiel walker, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
hi that cover has a groove on it and it snaps off fairly easy

Followed your instructions. The wheel turned a few degrees and stopped. How can I tell if the water is on?
Appliance Technician: esequiel walker, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
try it again make sure the ends are firmly in place

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
The wheel turns clockwise, clicking, just a couple of degrees and then indexes back to where it started. It didn't stop doing that when I removed the wire. Just checked and it is still doing that without the wire in place. Is that how water is metered into the cube maker?
Appliance Technician: esequiel walker, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
how long has it been should just rotate for ca minute and a half thats it if its still turning that is the problem the icemaker motor is bad

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Still doing the same thing described above. I assume I need to get in touch with a Maytag service organization. Is that right?
Appliance Technician: esequiel walker, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
