Water from dispenser starts as steady stream then slows and begins pulsating. Replaced filter and all was good for about a week before problem began again. When filter is removed, water constantly trickles from water filter head. No leaks when filter is attached to head. I don't have a bypass plug. Please help solve this so I purchase the correct part. Thanks
The first thing that you will want to do is to make sure that when the filter is installed that it is twisted all the way in. It will feel like it stops and you will need to try to turn it just a little more. If the filter is not all the way in it will start the pulsating as the unit is being dispensed. If the filter is fully in and still pulsating then the filter head would need to be replaced on the unit.
Hi, I have the side by side whirlpool fridge model GD25DFXB02. It has been slow over the past few months, changed the filter with one of your replacements, and it was great for about 2 weeks and then seriously slowed (to little more than a trickle.) thought it might be one bad filter, so two weeks in I changed to the second one, let the recommended amount of water go through and again, was flowing nicely for two weeks, then slowed. Not sure if this is relevant, but when I took the filter out, the water was also flowing great. Do I need to replace the water filter head? I appreciate any suggestions!
Answer Hello M.J.S.,
This sounds like excessive debris in the water supply. If you have had a water heater failure recently, you could have debris in the water supply from the old water heater. Otherwise, I think you should install an in-line filter behind the unit for two reasons: The in-line filter replacements are usually much cheaper to replace than the on-board filters. Secondly, the in-line filters have not experienced issues that the on-board filters have. The on-board filters even generated service bulletins with "curing" issues from the manufacturers.
The water dispenser on the door seems to have a slow drip. I'm not sure if this is because there is a worn out part or if it is clogged. The ice maker seems to get water ok. Can you help me? Thanks!!!!!
Answer Hello Carrie! Have you changed the water filter recently? If so, air can be trapped in the water line which can cause a slow drip. You can purge the wate rline by dispensing water for at least a minute continuously. If the problem still occurs you more than likely have a failing water valve. We will need your model number to verify the correct valve replacement part number. Thanks!
