Hello, having problem with real slow water coming into cup at the dispenser. It starts out quick and dies down just as fast as it started.
I checked water valve and it works fine and even tried another water valve and it does the same thing. I ran a piece of weed eater wire through the tubing can't seem to fine any blockages. Any Ideas on this matter?

Thank you!

Self tapping water valves will cause less water pressure.

he said he just replaced water filter not long ago, also he is getting great water pressure to the icemaker. This is when I pull the line off the feed tube to the icemaker and shoot the water into cup. I also get great pressure to the cup directly from the wall valve for the refrigerator.

I'm not sure what a good looking water filter looks like. Can you pull it out and reinstall it or is it best to get another even though one has recently been installed? I was just told the filter has been change twice.

How long ago was the filter last changed?

Was it an OEM filter?

Is it installed correctly?

Have you removed / reinstalled the filter yourself to ensure that it's seated properly and locked in all the way?

Ok, Slow water depenser update. The man has now replaced 3 filters in the refrigerator. He replaced one while i was there. We still get fast water distribution for about 2 to 3 seconds and then it get real slow. I notice when the old filter was taken out that it had pressure built up between filter and filter housung that filter screws onto. It is suppose to make a swoosh sould when you remove the filter? The next thing I saw is that he had a Kenmore filter 46 9006 in the refrigerator that he said the man from sears give him to replace the old one. Now, on the Sears website it indicates a Maytag filter # UKF 8001 replacement filter. If i'm correct there is no longer a Maytag company and their owned by Whirlpool. Can this filter he has bought really be the problem. Is there anyway I can by-pass the filter through the water valve to check it at the dispenser for water pressure then.

Pressure buildup and the flow is great for a second or two then down to dribble. Analogy: Voltage is good but current is limited. Last time I saw the same situation (oh, Joni Mitchell...), the lady had choked up lines in the house and I proved it by showing the same results from the valve at the wall. Youre sure you have good flow from your wall valve? If you do, theres a major restriction (NOT blockage) in that box somewhere.

The filter head assembly could be bad. Usually I try to hook the main water supply line straight to the valve bypassing the filter. I have no idea what this model looks like right offhand.

Also, make sure there is no trapped air in the line, especially in the reservoir. Purge the system by running a gallon or more of water if you can. Your fridge may just need a good burp.

If its a saddle type/self piercing valve to the supply line I'd open the hole a little larger(always a problem).

make sure the water reservoir tubing isnt pinched or collapsed and under the freezer door.

you can also test the water from the valve by removing the line that goes to the fill valve to the reservoir and seeing if it dies off(possible weak solenoid) if all checks out there bypass the filter(then test it)

Bring a handful of quick connect fittings 1/4 inch and 5/16 with you in case you have to cut any lines.

I always recommend a NICE inline filter before the fridge and tell the customer not to replace the filter on the inside as much(either double or triple the recommended change time. saves them money in the long run and filters water before the valve helping it the valve and other components last longer)
