    Hi Mikadot, I have already tried the clean and descale option. This problem I have is not always present, sometimes the water is delivered at a reasonable rate and then sometimes it dribbles slow, with no loss of water into the capsule catcher/tray.

It sounds like it's time for a cleaning. the tube is likely blocked with lime (calcium deposits) CLR does just that. It may be handy to have a long pipe cleaner like tool that is used for commercial coffee machines

Keeps running even when shut off and states "overfilling".

sounds like the water solinoid valve is stuck in the open position. look at the hole where the water comes in machine. alot of times it will be a slow dribble of water which overtime overfills the machine. just replace water valve if thats the case

Water dribbling out of dispencer whirlpool american fridgefreezer

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.

Slow water flow from water dispenser

Check water supply make sure you have ample water and not a kinked connection from supply. It is a common failure on Amana to have a defective Filter/Head assembly.

Hot water in washer comes out fine. Cold water is very slow coming out. It dribbles and takes forever to fill.

Clean inlet screen where hose attaches to machine. Water from water heater is generally "cleaner" as sediments have had a chance to settle out in the water heater. Cold water carries more stuff directly to the valve screen. Check also for kinked hose.

Water comes out but then stops

When the water pressure slows to a dribble, it's time to buy a new filter. Our family of 4 goes through a filter in 6 months.
