How do I get water pressure back after I replace a Whirlpool water filter?

Just replaced my Whirlpool side by sides water filter. Its located at the bottom and is push button pop out. Since replacing the filter, we get a trickle of water out of the dispenser then nothing. The water dispenser works without a filter. How do I correct the loss of pressure or lack of water flow?

SOURCE: cold water dispenser on new whirlpool side by side dispenses lukewarm water...ice maker works a charm

there is a tank in the refrigerator section that hlds about 1.5 gal of water as you dispense it refills and pushes out the cold water. if your unit is new it will need a day to cool down the tank of water before you will get cold cold water at the dispenser
Hope this help explain how it works

SOURCE: freezer does not make ice

You need to check and see if ice maker has any water init. if not check the fill tube that goes thru the back wall for stoppage while you have it out rin the maker thru a harvest mode and listen for the sounds of the solonoid opening. If tube is full you'll need to replace the slow leaking valve a common problem. for parts call 704-819-6557

Cut water supply off to frig disconnect water supply line to frig water inlet valve turn water back on to make sure you are getting good water supplied to water inlet valve some times water cut off gets stopped up. If you are getting good water flow to water inlet valve then check to make water valve is opening up all the way. if not then replace valve.

Where is the filter for the ice maker on whirlpool refer model number ED2CHOXK005


Removing and replacing a water filter - base grill location

Filters situated in the base grill (below the freezer compartment) of Whirlpool-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these two steps:
  1. Grasp the filter's end and make a one-quarter turn to the left.
  2. Pull the filter straight out.
To replace with a new filter, repeat these two steps in the opposite order, making sure to first remove the red cap from the filter. Proceed by pushing the filter straight into the slot, and then giving it a one quarter turn to the right.
Note: Replacing this type of filter is quick - there is no need to unplug your refrigerator when replacing it. Also, this filter should be replaced every six months.

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator model # ED5VHGXMQ stopped making ice and despensing water. could this be caused by the filter?


Yes, this is a symptom of the water filter in need of replacement, I would recommend starting with filter replacement, if that doesn't solve the problem, then I recommend checking the water supply at the back of the refrigerator. Shut the water valve off that is inline to the refrigerator, disconnect the tubing from the refrigerator at the water valve or the water tube couppler on the back of the refrigerator, have a container available so that you can run about 1 or 2 gallons of water out of the water supply tube in to the container to be able to see if the water pressure seems to be strong and if there is sediment or other foreign matter that needed to be flushed from the system. If water supply seems good then reverse the process to supply water back to the refrigerator. If water supply is not good you need to have a technician or plumber check into the water supply further.
GOOD LUCK !

Some of the early models had a sphion ball at the dispenser water tube. When this design worked. it was supposed to sphion water back into the supply line after you stopped calling for water.It's recommended that after you replace the filter and or anytime the water lines are accessed, purge the system. Pull at least 1 gal of water from the dispenser to purge the air. Air in the lines will produce back pressure. This pressure not the same as the regulated line pressure, will continue to push water through to the dispenser and or icemaker. Depending on the model design of the unit, the ice maker may be tricky to purge. Ther are several styles, with the ice bin in the door as trickyest.

Water Filter


most whirlpools have the filter located in the bottom kickplate, right below the freezer door. turn counter-clockwise and toward you to remove. if it has never been removed before, they are hard to get out the first time.

I had the same problem, and had to replace the temp regulator. It is located on the refrigerator side, by the water filter. It took me 15 to 20 minutes to replace it.
