If the aerator is clear of debris, there is a valve of sorts in the center of the faucet that diverts water to a spray nozzle (the sprayer on a hose that would be next to the faucet). Even if you don't have the sprayer, most all kitchen faucets have this diverter valve. It's a bit like the thing (in a bathtub/shower combination) that switches the flow from the tub spout to the shower head.

Sometimes, something will work its way into the diverter so that it stops the flow to the tap. It could be a piece of debris (mineral flake, rust flake, etc.) that can be backflushed out. This would require removing the faucet and removing the main valve assembly. Long story short, think about replacing the faucet if the diverter valve is acting up.

Today,water was coming out of faucet but will now only come out of the sprayer and nothing out of the faucet. This has happened a couple of times recently but "self-corrected". The faucet is 6 years old.


Hi, there are filters that need cleaning periodically. Undo the nut where the water comes out from the tap, use an appropriate sized spanner, remove meshed filter, clean under running water and replace.
Hope this helps

My GWL10 fills really slowly. It starts fine with the hot water, then slows to a trickle when it switches to cold but it doesn't seem to affect it if I change the temperature selection. I normally leave it...


sounds like you have a restriction on the cold water water pipe kinked or a blockage turn off cold water and remove pipe from cold tap then turn tap on and see if water is coming through fast enough if it is then the restriction is in the hose or valve on washing machine if not then the restriction is in the cold water tap

Slow and nonexistent water flow.


Start by removing the spray head from the hose. Pull the spray head out and with a channel lock pliers unthread connection between the spray head and hose. BE CAREFUL not to let the hose fall back down into the faucet. With the hose directed down toward the sink test for volume by turning on the faucet. If you get a nice volume the problem is in the spray head. This is usually the case. Put the spray head back on then remove the aerator. It's the screen where the water comes out of the spray head. Clean out the assembly ( 3-4 parts). Reassemble and test.

Good luck, Phil

Slow water flow on Whirlpool Gold 25.6 cubic


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..
