Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
In-door water dispenser's been running slow for a few years. Replaced filter today, was running 4.5 gallons of water though new filter before using the dispenser water, got 2 gallons (took a long time) and then it just stopped flowing. Can hear the normal slight hum when pushing the dispenser actuator. Closed the water supply valve, removed new filter; got a hiss of air and water, turned supply valve back on, still no water at so new filter not plugged. Turned supply valve off, disconnected the water line to fridge, turned valve back on, lots of pressure there. With inlet to fridge disconnected, press door dispenser actuator, water came back out of inlet with some pressure briefly then stopped. Reconnected supply and turned on valve but still not flow at dispenser. Where should I look next? Thanks!
Sounds like the water valve for the water dispenser is not opening..You can search the internet for you model number and order a new valve online..I just order a duel water valve for my whirlpool and it was 80 dollars..Got it from www.partselect.com Hope this helps

SOURCE: slow water flow
dadcanfix. There are two possibilities here. One could be the water valve itself, clogged or not seating or opening properly. The second would be the water tank on the refrigerator side, partially frozen. I believe they have a kit now with coiled tubing that replaces that tank because of the trouble they had with it. Remove the refer drawers and take a hair dryer and go over the tank lightly. See if that improves the water flow. Catriver..post back.
