Maytag Fridge - Push Water Button Ice Comes Out


My Maytag fridge has three buttons - water, crush and ice. We used it for water an hour ago and now when water is selected and the button pushed ice comes out.

Any ideas? Is the button just not selecting water? Not sure what to do.

Thanks!

If water pressure and filter are good it may be the water inlet valve. Strange all of a sudden it stop working. If nothing is functioning at all with dispenser, may be the dispenser control board (not likely).

Try unplugging fridge for awhile then plug it back in, see if that helps. Sort of a reboot.

How old is fridge?

I just emptied the ice out to check if it's making ice correctly.

The odd thing is when I push the water button you hear the ice dispense turn on and if there was ice in the tray the ice will drop out.

It's like the button has changed to ice.

Unplug fridge from power for awhile, then plug back it back in again. See if that helps. Thanks.

Just wanted to say thanks. Unplugged it for awhile last night and when I woke up this morning it was working again. Maybe something froze up and thawed itself. Thanks again.
