My water dispenser is running extremely slow. I have changed the filter. I have even taken out the filter and put in the filter head plug, and there has been no change in the water velocity. I thought of changing the filter head and tubing assembly (part wp12956202)...make sense?
For model number MFI25658AES

Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. If the water is dispensing slowly, There are some parts that you will need to check to see which ones are causing the issue. You will need to check the water inlet valve, the dispenser actuator, the high voltage board, the reservoir, the extension chute, the spring, the light switch and the dispenser front overlay. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

My refrigerator started making a really loud jackhammer noise when i try to get water. The water pressure also becomes very slow. It sounds like it's coming from the filter area located on the back top right of the fridge. I have read on multiple sites and many people are having the same problem and they all have different suggestion. What would be your recommendation on fixing this problem?
For model number KFIS25XVMS0

Hi Joshua, Thank you for your inquiry. If the noise is coming for the area where the water filter is installed I would check to see if it is connected correctly and to see if there are any problems with the filter itself and the filter housing. Also you may have to check the water lines and the water inlet valve as well. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Just ordered and received a new water tank assembly from you. When removing the old tube connection I pulled out the light blue retaining ring and one side of the four retainer clips broke off. I installed the new tube but it started leaking at that connection. Can you help me with a new light blue retaining seal?
For model number MF12568AEW
PartSelect logo
Hello Steve, thank you for contacting us. The water tank assembly pipe goes into the water inlet valve, which has a blue retaining ring at its entry. This blue retaining ring is a part of the inlet valve and only comes with it. You may need to replace the inlet valve, part number PS2069865. We hope this information helps!

I am not getting water to run into my ice maker, and the pressure at the water spigot seems low. I have been seeing an issue with the amount of ice available decreasing for the last month. I have changed the water filter, an still have the same issue. I have taken out the ice maker, and saw some ice build up in the water receiving funnel, but it was not blocked. I am assuming that the ice make will work, and it is just an issue with the correct pressure getting the water to the ice maker. I am not sure what i can change out to fix this, and or if it is worth it. Can you please help with the diag, and give some pointer on how to change whatever you suggest. Thanks

Hi Steve, Thank you for your questions. The issue may be with the water filter. It is recommended that before you use the filter, that you flush it before use. You will need to find a container that will fit in the water dispenser. You will need to position the container in the water dispenser and press in to begin dispensing the water. You will need to run 3-5 gallons of water through the water filter. Discard the water once you have done flushing the filter. Consult your owner's manual for further information. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!
