Water dispenser slow

Not sure what happen but the water dispenser became really slow. Takes 3 times as long to fill a cup of water. I have changed the filter as well, but same problem. When I put the bypass switch instead of the filter it works fine.

Fridgidaire refrigerater dispenses water

The part number you are going to need is 241734302. This is the water valve located in the back of the machine. Whats going on is the solenoid for the dispenser isn't seating properly and when the icemaker calls for water the pressure is enough to push through and come out the door as well

GE GSL25IGRE BS slow water dispenser

Sounds like your water valve may need changing, and has filled up with sediment, slowing the water flow.

Water from dispenser very slow

You could have a piched H2O line somewhere near where the door connects at the bottom front corner or a bad water valve could be the issue. There should be a water container in the rear of the inside of the fresh food side that stores water. Make sure its not leaking or has any obstructions to it or the lines to and from it.

No water going in the ice maker but water dispener

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and does not dump , replace the icemaker . Check to make sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . If it does dump , and does not refill with water , replace the water inlet valve ( piece behind refrig where the wall water line connects to on the fridge ) . Check to make sure the fill tube that fills the icemaker is not blocked with ice , still indicating a bad water inlet valve ( slow seep ) .

Samsung Refrigerator side by side water is dispensed really slow. It will take 3 minutes to fill a glass.

Change your water filter, you should change your filter at least every year or it will start to grow bactria. If you still have the bypass (little plastic cap) you can us that in the mean time to get better water flow, it goes where the filter goes

Water from dispenser slows down while filling cup

If your water is slowing down the screen on the water valve may be stopped up or the filter (if it has one, when was it last changed?) or line feeding the refrigerator may be stopped up or the water valve its self may not be opening all the way and staying open.

To eliminate 3 of the external problems take the water line off the fridge and run some water into a pan and open and close water like at your kitchen sink and see if the water slows or speeds up noticeably while running into the pan. If so the problem is in the water line. While you have thew line off remove and inspect the water inlet valve screen and replace the hose washer (if so equipped) this brings your problem if you have not found it yet to the inside of the fridge. Usually on the corner of the door hinge the water line makes a turn up to the dispenser inspect it there and see if its twisted or kinked. Also there is a water resiviour inside the fridge look there for the same thing and possibley where food may have been forced agianst the line.

If you still dont find it by now I'D have to know what you did find and where.

If this helps you please rate me with as high a rating as you can and thank you for using fix ya.

Water is really slow

it was good before you changed that first filter? if so you probably got something in the line. from removing filter like part of oring or something and its now in your line from filter. try turning water off and break open water line before filter and see how well it poors there into a bucket or something and work your way down to the dispenser.

Water Dispenser

The water does come out slow on these models. I know you said you replaced your filter with a new one and it is still not any faster.

I own a Kenmore Elite #596 73503 201. I have not changed my filter for approximately 18 months and when I timed how long it took to fill a 2 Cup measuring cup (liquid measure) it took: less than 45 seconds. Can you test yours and post back how long it takes with your fridge?

Water dispenser is just a trickle

the biggest culprit for slow water dispensing aside from the filter is the water supply its self. check to make sure the water line isnt kinked behind the refrig, if thats ok then disconnect the water line from the refrig and run water into a bucket and observe your water flow. good water pressure would basicly fill a 2 gallon bucket in less than a minute. much less than that can cause problems. hope that helps peyton
