There is a seal around the filter housing. If it is leaking around the filter housing than you need to replace the filter which will come with a new seal.

Can the water filter housing be the cause of slow water when the filter is in place?

Even a new filter will reduce the flow some what. I think the pressure to the filter is low or restricted . that will cause a reduction in flow, no it should not leak, check on the seal.

My culligan 30 good water system leaks--i have turned it off because of the mess--i would like to fix it and can i do this outside of the kitchen so i don't have to clean up so much water

Your question is difficult to answer until you determine where it is leaking. Some common places to check are inlet and outlet ports,are fittings going into these tight enough, are they to tight and have cracked the housing on filter . Is there rust or other debris lodged in pressure relief valve.Is it leaking on gasket.
I'm not trying to avoid your question I just need more info. If it's leaking around inlet or outlet ports then you can take these apart if they installed a union. If so then you can remove fittings and tape with several wraps of teflon tape and use pipe joint compound also if you like. If copper or brass fittings were used for installation they may have cracked the housing where they screw into. Sometime you can't see hairline cracks unless fittigs are installed.If it is leaking around base gasket you can remove filter housing and clean gasket and both sealing surfaces. Sometimes a small amount of faucet grease or petroleum jelly on the gasket will help it seal
If it's leaking out of pressure relief you will need to remove filter top and wash out with clean water to clear any rust or mineral particles.
Sorry I can't be more specific but I hope this helps some and if there is anything else I can do let me know. Thank you

The canister that holds the water filter in my whirlpool refrig. is leaking .model# ed5fhgxkq03 . the 2 tubes coming from the back may be the problem .can they be replaced.

Check the filter itself , around the end inserted into the housing , to see if it is cracked . I recently install a new housing , due to water leak , and turned out to be the filter itself which was cracked . But , yes , the 2 lines can be purchased from any hardware store ( this type of tubing ) . Just cut a small piece and take with you , so you can get the correct size (s) . Doesn't have to be strictly refrigerator tubing .

Water filter compartment leaking

If you have already replaced the filter and you can see the housing is still leaking, You have to replace the housing and water tank as an assembly (12956202). Make sure you verify it's the filter housing leaking, and not a fitting at the water valve which is right behind the plastic cover around and below the filter housing.

Water leak at filter

You probably will have to replace the water filter housing that holds the water filter. This is an relatively easy job and should only take about 30 min. The housing will cost around $40-$50 online or from your appliance store. Turn off the water to the fridge. Take the top shelf out of the fridge to access the water filter area. There is a small screw in a really deep hole on the bottom of the cover, just to the right of the filter cup. I used a really small socket (9/32",1/4" or 9mm - can't remember) and extention. Take out the screw which will uncover the housing. The water hoses (white) just slip onto the housing - check these to verify if they are on tight. If they are loose this is the water leak. if they are on tight (which I'm sure they are) then proceed. Take off the filter cup which is screwed onto the housing. Remember "righty tighty - lefty loosy". Take another small screw (maybe two) out which holds the housing to the refrigerator. Now pull the water hoses off the housing. This is kinda tuff because the hoses are just slid on to the housing and are held on by friction only and its hard to get a good grasp because of the location of the unit. You can't really stick much under the hoses to pry them off either because if you damage them, they won't hold the seal later. Just pull and twist and they should come off. Visually inspect the housing unit, you should be able to see a crack if there is one. Replace if necessary. Just make sure not to overtighten the screws and especially the filter cup when reinstalling. Good luck and I hope this helps.
