Re: Water pressure is extremely low.
Let over line so that one can move the unit w/o disconnecting the water line. Check to se if the preasure going to the unit is low also by disconnecting the line after someone helping you turnas it off and on at the tap valve where it attaches to the house water line. If low there turn off house warter dissemble saddle needle valve and clean .If preasure is good there Replace the water filter on the unit or the one in line. If that doesn't work , then consider replacing the fill valve.

Hello, Their are two somewhat related possible things causing the dispenser/icemaker to not work
1) The water flow into the water inlet valve on the back of the ref.where the house water supply to it is restricted,so either no or very low water pressure is coming into the valve. To check that turn off water supply and disconnect from ref...place end of tube in bucket and turn water back on to check pressure coming in..if pressure is low(just dribbles) the supply will insufficent to fill icemaker/disopenser.
2) If pressure is good into the valve the water valve they tube connects to is going to be the problem.
In case the pressure is good and the water inlet valve needs to replaced the part number for it is 12195504 It can be purchased at your local applaince parts store or online at; searspartsdirect.com repairclinic.com apdepot.com apwagner.com midwestapplianceparts.com
You are getting too much water to your icemaker, either faulty water valve or extremely high pressure or extremely low pressure either way will cause too much water in your icemaker, extreme low causes water valve not to shut off, high pressure lets too much water through when it opens. These pressures are not adjustable in the fridge. You can on certain models adjust the amount of time the valve is on, per the icemaker, it usually will have a screw on the side of it towards the front of the icemaker.
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.
You need to try another filter before looking for a fault. If still blocking, switch water off then unscrew "filter holding bracket" 2 pipes connected. one from the water supply and the other to the to the dispencer. Open the water pressure and inspect the rate that the water flows.from the supply. If satisfactory, try and connect the one pipe to the other and retry water pressure. if not strong, problem is in second section of pipe. Rectify.
you may want to check your water presuure if pressure is to low the valve in the back of the fride is not closing properly or the valve is defective to check for this you need to remove the electric solenoid behind the fride leave the water line installed disconect the output tubingif it drips replace the solenoid valve firstname.lastname@example.org
The water hose coil is to chill the drinking water coming out of the dispenser. If the water drips out it could be a bad solenoid valve since the water dispenser requires power to dispenser water. If the Ice maker is working fine then check the dispenser water solenoid valve.
