Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

Slow water flow on Whirlpool Gold 25.6 cubic

I have a very slow flow for water through the door. I have changed the tube in the door, the relays in the door, the tube in the refridge side, the pump under the machine, the filter, the filter housing, and nothing has sped up the flow. I have a new, large hose coming from a reverse osmosis system, which, when disconnected and turned on, pumps out water fast! I have changed everything I can think of to get the flow going faster, and nothing seems to be working.

The water line tap may be screwed back into the water line or you did not sufficiently poke a hole into the water line with the tap. We had the same problem. Shut off the water supply, remove the tap from the line and check the size of the hole. my bet is the hole is very small. Either drill out the hole with a drill and replace the tap (with a new rubber grommet) or add a tee into the line with the proper size compression fitting (that is what we did) and the water will flow freely..

your defrost drain has clogged, normal self defrost cycle should be removing water via a drain tube leading down behind unit and evaporating away. however if you were to look behind refrig in compressor compartment youll see a "drain tube" that has what appears to be a black "duckbill" grommet has more then likely failed be gumming up and preventing water to drain through.if you remove this and install part number "w10619951", should solve your problem... youll need to clear frozen drain from inside unit as well, directions i believe are in the part packet

There is most likely a crimp in the line or some other blockage.
Remove the toe kick plate across the bottom front of the refrigerator.
You will see the water line to the door. The pkastic line is about 3/8 inch in size.
There is a plastic coupling that needs to be disconnected.
Have a glass handy and have someone push the water button while you catch the water.
If you get a good stream of water under the refrigerator,the restriction is in the door tubing.
If you do not get good flow,the water valve could be disconnected in the rear and run the water button again.
Ifr you then get good flow the restriction is in the tubing inside the fresh food side.
If you get poor flow at the valve,the valve is bad.

Probably calcium build-up in the water valve. If you can get to the valve, see if you can take the water line off and put a little Calcium/Lime/Rust (CLR or a similar product) in it. If you've got one of those syringes like you inject spices into meat and turkey, that would do the trick. You might also try an eye-dropper. BE SURE to flush the line throughly after you put the tubing back together. For safety's sake, flush it twice as long as you think you have to.

That should do the trick. If not, you may want to remove the valve and see if there is a calcium build up there. It's the 'bottleneck' of the water flow system, and I'm betting that's where the blockage that's slowing the water flow is. Worst case scenerio, buy a new water valve.
