Hello. I just installed a new water filter. Samsung brand for this refrig. Since installing, and I did install it properly, the water takes about 60 - 70 seconds to fill a glass up. Can anyone help with this problem? Thank you!!!

You have to reset the light by pressing and holding the touch pad for 3-5 seconds. It doesn't reset on its own when you replace the filter

Slow water flow

I would try the backwash as you suggest. Also, I had to run a few gallons of water through a new filter, for it to work properly..
Hope it helps.... good luck!

Below are instructions to reset water filter light. Thanks, Sea Breeze
If helpful please rate.

Reset Filter (select models)

When a water filter has been installed in the

refrigerator, the yellow Order light will illuminate when

90 percent of the volume of water for which the filter is

rated has passed through the filter OR 11 months have

elapsed since the filter has been installed.

The red Replace light will illuminate when the rated

volume of water has passed through the filter OR 12

months have elapsed since the filter was installed. A

new filter should be installed immediately when the

Replace light is illuminated.

After replacing the filter, press and hold the Reset

Filter pad for three seconds. The Order and Replace

lights will go off.

Vacation Mode

The Vacation Mode feature causes the freezer

to defrost less frequently, conserving energy. The

Vacation Mode indicator light will illuminate when the

feature is activated. To deactivate, press the Vacation

Mode pad again OR open either door. The indicator

light will go off.

Water flow is extremely slow after filter change.

Those filters are for refrigerators that have heavily treated water in the household. You could have a filter that filters your water supply and not use the filter inside the frig. Why use both? Now, if your home is not filtered, you may need it. Check to see if the water supply line is crimped somewhere or frozen when it gets inside the frig.

Water wont dispense but still makes ice. Also fridge side gets extremely cold no matter the settings and freezes stuff in the bottum drawers

Since your freezer control is the main thermostat , and your refrig control is only a damper , lower your freezer setting and turn the refrig control mid way . This will make the refrig run less , and keep the air flow moving , throughout the complete unit . When the airflow stops , by turning down the refrig control ( closing the damper ) , all the cold air will settle in the refrig section , thereby freezing everything in the lower section .
Since the water line runs thru the freezer door , too cold in the freezer section , will cause the water in the line to freeze . I would also suggest installing a dispensor heater ( pt. # WR49X10173 ) , which would hopefully avoid water line freeze , in the future . This part comes with installation instructions .

The water dispenser is not working properly. There is water coming out, but at a reduced amount than before. The filter is new so it is not that. What could be the reason?

Put your old filter back on or the filter bypass piece that came with refrig .I have found several new filters which lowered the water output when installed . I would not replace the filter when the little lite says to . Only when the water flow rate decreases .

With the refrig , you should have gotten a small bypass piece which fits in place of the inside filter . Install this to see if the filter is good or not . Water faster , replace filter , still slow , possible water valve problem . Also use a connector usually a 1/4 x 1/4 compression fitting , to bypass the outside filter for test purposes only .

Installing the water filter to my refrigator

Rotate the cartridge hand hold to a vertical position and PULL.

You may need to get pliers to grab with.
