How do I remove the line from the filter head that has the blue rings around it from the solenoid?
Answer Hello Cory. If you press in on the compression ring, the water line should pull out once the compression ring is pressed.
My kitchen aid fridge would not dispense water at full stream. It makes a bouncing sound, like someone turning on and off real fast. After changing filter, and then water inlet valve, I still have same problem. What do you think it could be.
In a lot of cases this issue would be caused by one of 2 things. The first is you will want to make sure that the filter was twisted in all the way. If the filter is not twisted in all the way it will cause the pins that are in the filter head to not be fully depressed and causing the hammering noise. The second if the filter is twisted in all the way is that the filter head is faulty because the pins are not going straight in and sitting at an angle and creating the noise. In this case you would need to replace the filter head assembly 67004106.
Pretty confident I've isolated the problem down to the Water Filter Head on my Maytag refridgerator. Now the question is, how difficult a repair is this? Is it something a mook like me with moderate mechanical skills and a basic tool set can handle? I don't see that you have one of the great videos I've followed for other repairs in the past.
Answer Hello Danin. These are not to hard to replace. Turn off water and power. 1. Remove filter cover opening cover and pulling rear left side of cover to the left to release cover from holding pin. 2. Filter head can be released from holding bracket by opening tabs on left side filter head and pulling downward and to your left to release filter head. 3. Tubing needs to be disconnected from water valves in the machine compartment. 4. After tubing is loose from water valves pull the filter head and tubing out the front of unit. 5. Reverse procedure to reassemble.
