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.

SOURCE: water filter leaking
This happened to me and was the o-ring, the cup is sealed by the o-ring and in my case I did not realise it dopped off after I unscrewed. Either your o-ring is missing or needs replaced as it is worn out.

SOURCE: water leak
it sounds like the filter housing could have a crack in it, but It could potentially be a leaking line. In the event the old filter where clogged to the extreme, you'd simply have little or no water flow, not enough pressure to cause a leak though. I've seen these housings damaged by customers forcing the filters in or out in ways never intended.
To check the lines are secure/not leaking...
**FIRST unplug the unit from the wall and turn off the water supply**
either go thru the front by removing the toe panel/kick plate grill, or go thru the back panel, you'll still need to remove the grill at the front though. the 2 screws securing the filter housing to the fridge are at the front behind that grill. (if your lines are long enough -they usually aren't- you can undo the screws and pull the housing out to work on it easier/unimpeded). remove the 2 lines to the filter housing carefully(when removing these you simply push the tab surrounding the line "in" or "down" and pull out the line) and inspect them at the ends where the "seat" in the fitting/"O" ring within the housing. with a razor blade or sharp utility knife, cut off a small amount to insure a clean fitting when re-installing the lines into the housing (simply push them in the way they came out, until they bottom out and you can't pull them back out). once that's done you can turn the water back on, plug the unit in, and check for leaks. Is it actually the lines, or the housing itself ?
I've seen this a few times. the complete housing can be replaced and it isn't that difficult. First verify it is leaking behind the filter at the housing, I could try and help further. the housing is # 2186443 if you need it.
hope that helps,
