Hello baker..... Let's remove Whenever you replace the water filter on any refrigerator, you must run a couple of gallons of water thru the water dispenser until all the air from the new water filter is out. Use a large container to do this. The water will not stop when you pull a cup away because the water valves used on refrigerators are so weak it will not close until it has pressure on both sides of it. If you don't get the air out, the air from your new water filter can go to the ice maker and stop ice production. So flush the air out of your new water filter.

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.

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.

Water dispenser not working


I had the same problem. Your water line is frozen. Turn off your freezer and the water line will unfreeze and it will work. You can see about putting in a heater on your water line. There have been mixed reviews on whether or not it works. The water line just froze again, so I may try the heater.

The indoor water of my Whirlpool side by side refridgerator stopped dispensing water. The ice still works. I changed the filter but still no water


More than likly the solinoid is damaged, turn off the water and power and remove it, once removed you can turn the power back on while you go and find a new one. leave the water off until the new one is installed and turn the power off while you fit the new one. Turn on water, check for leaks, turn on power check for leaks again.

Before you pay for a new solinoid ask the parts guy to test your old part. If this is not the problem is has to be a problem with the electric switch attached to the water dispencer handle.

The solinoid is a double one side controls the ice the other cold water to the door, mark the two wire terminals so you can put them back. ( check you didnt loosen one of the wires when changing the filter - stranger things have happened ) solinoid is located at the end of the water line from the wall, just behind the cardboard at the bottom of the fridge, it should have two water lines and two power terminals attached.

HAVE REPLACE THE FILTER, NO WATER OR ICE WHEN FILTER WAS OUT MADE ONE BATCH OF ICE THEN STOPPED NO NOTHING WATER IS ON NO KINKS IN HOSE WHAT IS WRONG THANKS ROSE


Try putting the old filter back in . Just because the " change filter " light comes on , does not mean to actually change the filter if your water dispensor is not just trickling out . If water was coming out fine before replacing filter , no need to replace it just because ot the indicator . I have found new filters which worked worse than the old filter . Just put the old filter back in and problem solved .

Water filter won't come out so I can change it.


I had same prob when I changed filter first time...if it is up in the top corner of fridge, you'll need some kind of rubber gripper to use cause the condensation makes the filter holder slippery. Just grab on to it and turn counterclockwise. It should just screw out, take out the old filter, replace w/new and screw back in. On some fridges, the whole part you screwed out has to be replaced instead of just a filter inside it. Hope this helps.
