We got a new filter and when we went to run the water, it would not come out. We put the old one in, and it would not come out. We are getting ice, but I do not think that it is making new ice. There was ice where the water comes in to make the ice, I was able to remove that, but think that there may be ice through the whole line. I did notice the fridge was set at a pretty cold setting, so could that be the problem? I don't want to have someone come fix it, if this is something that we can do, but if not, we will call a repairman.

The Whirlpool fridge requires a water supply connection to a cold water line. Before you connect the water supply to the water line on the fridge, make certain the unit is unplugged from the wall. Press the button and drop down the cover. Then twist to release the old filter and twist the new one into the filter head. Run about 2 gallons of water through dispenser to remove any air from the lines. Liquid EPDM Rubber Roof Coatings for Roof Leaks Repair EPDMCoatings
Take the new water filter out of the box and remove the two red shipping caps on the end of the filter. The water filter is located on the front panel down near the floor. Push the release button located just to the left of the water filter grille cap, this will release the filter. Remove the grille cap from the filter by twisting it counterclockwise. Reinstall the grille cap on the new water filter. Insert the new water filter in the refrigerator making sure the words on the filter are the correct side up. Push the water filter in until it clicks in place. Flush Water After Installing New Filter Be sure you flush out the water from the new filter after you replace it! Many readers are having trouble with airlocks because they are skipping this important step. Kenmore recommends you run the water out of the water and ice maker for a few minutes to flush out the new filter. This also helps remove air bubbles from the system. If you don’t do this it’s possible that the water dispenser may not work properly due to an air lock.

The water lines are contaminated with bacteria and/or mold. This is a problem with many refrigerators. You need to turn off water and disconnect the feed line and filter. Mix 4 ounces of Clorox(R) in 1 gallon of water and pump it through with a NEW garden sprayer. You can remove the wand and clamp it onto the water inlet. Activate the dispenser while you pump the bleach through the system. Once bleach starts coming out the dispenser, vent the garden sprayer (de-pressurize), Let the bleach sit for 15-20 minutes. Re-attached water using a brand new filter (do not use the old filter and do not put bleach through filter). Run water until no chlorine odor (it can be a while). This process needs to be done at least once a year.
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 .
Try putting the old filter back in . Just because the " change filter " light comes on , does not mean to actually change the filter if your water dispensor is not just trickling out . If water was coming out fine before replacing filter , no need to replace it just because ot the indicator . I have found new filters which worked worse than the old filter . Just put the old filter back in and problem solved .
I would suggest that you put the new water filter back in and try dispensing water for about ten minutes. If there is still a high pitched noise then you could try bleeding the water line at different points along the water circuit (with control over the incoming supply). The fact that you are forcing water through the tank should normally resolve any air locks. The water filter could also be bled of air. Hope this is of some help.
