The water pressure from the door is coming out real slow. I checked the connection to the water line and the pressure is good. I can tell that it's something with the refrigerator. I can't see any kinks in the lines that are visible. What else can I look at?

When you say you put a bypass in, are you referring to a bypass for a water filter? Make sure there isn't a filter that was already in the line outside the refrigerator or, if that's what was bypassed, make sure there isn't another filter in the refrigerator.
If you're positive that the filter isn't the issue you may need to disconnect the water line and check for debris in the connection to the refrigerator, then confirm you have good water pressure to the fridge.
If your water line is the right size, then what has probably happened is that you have ice build up in the line. You need to take everything out of your freezer, and check for ice. Blow a hair dryer on the warm setting at the point the line comes into the freezer! I have to do this to mine every once in a while!
Most likely your inlet valve is bad. To test this disconnect the hoses from the inlet valce. One line is from your home the other two are the ones you disconnect. Test the door water first. After that switch the quick connects that run to the inlet UNPLUG fridge first. Switch connections plug back in and than test water in door again. See how much water is coming out. If plenty of water than in may be in your reservoir or your filter. If low pressure disconnect water line from home and see if you have good pressure If you have good pressure from the house than replace the inlet valve. If you dont than check house water pressure.If you have any questions please feel free to comment me.
The water lines if not tight in their connections can pull in air which creates extra pressure in the lines and pushes the water out slowly till the pressure levels out. The first thing I do to try and find the problem spot is use my thumb to block the water spout while pushing in the dispenser paddle to create extra pressure in the line and see if water comes out anywhere in the lines. Keep a towel handy cause after your push the paddle for a few seconds you will feel the water pressure under your thumb build and when your thumb cant take it any longer or your done testing that water is going to come out. Not a lot but enough for a towel. If no water comes out unfortunatley you will have to follow each water line and look at every connection point in the water valve, and at the bottom of the freezer door. I will even pull the lines out of the conection and cut a small piece of the line off clean before putting the line back in to improve the connection. Hopefully this helps.
A strainer before the inlet valve can get stopped up restricting flow. It's on the back where the water supply connects.
have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the
water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser
water line and then see how fast the water comes out when you try the
dispenser. If it's slow here there is a valve our water supply problem. If it's
normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's
normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door
till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the
remove the saddle clamp that some idiot put on the supply line under your sink and splice in a real "T" with a real cutoff. hopefully the saddle clamp is past your main valve and not before it or you'll have to turn off all your water first.
Sounds like some thing pluging the water line or the water line pinched some where.. if the hole was 1/4 inch you should get enough water with that big of a hole. I would check the water line for a obstruction.
Let me know if this helps.
