For Whirlpool Kit, Water Valve (Part Number: AP4009555)

Just hooked up the system and after trying to use the water dispenser on the door, it dripped very heavily. Enough to fill a cup within a few minutes. I have not tried to flush the system of all air, but I don't see a small bit of air pressure causing THAT much flow.

ANSWER Hi Brian. Understand that you replaced the water valve part # 12002193. It will normally take 1-gallon of water flushed through the water filter part # UKF8001. It needs replaced every 6-mos.(750 gallons) of use. Activate the water valve for no longer then 6-seconds and let it rest for a few so that the new coils on the water valve will not overheat. If then after the air is completely flushed from the filter, tubing and water tank, and it still drips then this indicates a clogged water filter. Thank You.
