Water dispenser runs slow.

I have a whirlpool side by side refrigerator. We replaced the water filter and when we purged it to get out the air there was a lot of debris coming out. We returned the filter and got another one. Installed it and purged the air out. The water is clean but it runs really slow. Never had that problem before. Has anyone else had this problem and wer you able to fix it?

I have the same issue. Online research suggested that it may be a bad inlet valve. I replaced the inlet valve with a new factory replacement but the issue remains. I also pulled the new filter out and installed the factory bypass plug. With the bypass plug installed I get full flow from the dispenser. When I reinstalled the filter the water dispenses very slowly and it makes a loud vibrating noise. I have tried a few brand new filters and still have the issue.



What is the model number of the refrigerator?

Have you checked that the water supply pressure at the refrigerator water inlet valve is OK?

Usually the water authority states what the household pressure should be and gives examples how to check e.g. time to fill a bucket or cup etc.

If the pressure is low it takes a little while longer to force through the filter


Just got new French door whirlpool refrigerator yesterday. The water flow is terrible. Our old refrigerator never had that problem. Yesterday morning it worked great in the old fridge. Suggestions?

Solution 1:

Water Tube in Door is Frozen

To determine if the water supply tube is frozen, disconnect the tube at the bottom of the door and blow air through it. If air does not pass through, this indicates that the water supply tube is frozen. If the water supply tube is frozen, thaw it out. In addition, ensure that the freezer is kept at the proper temperature. The freezer temperature should be kept from 0-10 degrees Fahrenheit. If the freezer is too cold, the water line may freeze.

Solution 2:

Water Inlet Valve

The water inlet valve opens to supply water to the dispenser. If the water inlet valve is defective, or if the water pressure is too low, the water valve will not open. The valve requires at least 20psi to function properly. Make sure that the water pressure to the valve is at least 20 psi. If the water pressure is sufficient, use a multimeter to test the water inlet valve for continuity. If the water inlet valve does not have continuity, replace it.

Solution 3:

Low Water Pressure from House Supply

The home may have insufficient water pressure. The water inlet valve supplies water to the water dispenser. The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to function properly. Check the water flow and test the pressure to determine if it is at least 20 psi.

Solution 4:

Dispenser Control Board

The dispenser control board governs most of the functions of the dispenser system. If the control board is faulty, it may stop supplying power to the entire dispenser system. If only one dispenser part is not working, test each of the dispenser components before testing the control board. It is more likely that a single part has failed. If the entire dispenser system is not working, the control board is more likely to be at fault.

Solution 5:

Water Filter

A clogged water filter can restrict the flow of water to the dispenser and prevent the dispenser from working properly. The water filter should be replaced about every six months to maintain proper water flow and ensure water quality.

great advice except I have no idea how to do any of the steps since I can't identify any of the devices.

What is the model number of the refrigerator?

Since it is new contact the Whirlpool service centre in your location and get it fixed under the manufacturer's warranty.
