It was simply a matter of removing the old filter housing unit by unscrewing 3 screws and unplugging the two water tubes. After re-insterting the water tubing and securing the housing unit "VOILA" good as new..It really was easy..

Water leaking from inflow water tube at the water filter housing.
The CAUSE of the LEAK were the O-rings on the water filter itself. My son followed others suggestions on how to detach the water hose from the filter housing, advise was helpful. After replacing the water filter housing, helpful, and inflow water tube the leak was still there. So my son then inspected the water filter and replaced. Water filter light was still green so we did not think it needed attention.

Drinking water dispenser was flowing very slowly.
I first replaced the housing holding the water filter because during my effort to diagnose the problem I couldn't get the friction fittings to seal back up and they kept leaking. I hoped that replacing the filter housing would affect the flow problem but it didn't. I then replaced the valve. The replacement part was a little different in design than the original part but wasn't too difficult to figure out. My guess is that the original valve has some kind of electric solenoid that wasn't opening all the way. New value solved the problem. No special tools or techniques were required. Just had to unplug water lines and electrical connectors and figure out the way to plug the new valve in.

Water leaking at the water filter housing where smallest line connects to housing
Turned off water to refrigerator. Unplugged refrigerator.
Removed front lower grille- pull gently on each end.
Remove water filter.
Remove screws from housing and from support bail.
Push on round connector at water line and gently pull water line out of housing. Same for other line.
Check ends of each water line for roughness or cracks, cut off if needed.
Reinstall in reverse order and check for leaks.
It may be easier on some modeled to remove refrigerator rear lower panel to access water inlet valve so you can remove these same 2 water lines from this valve then remove them with the filter housing all at one time then check your water lines before installing on new housing and feed lines back to the water inlet valve and reconnect them.
BE SURE REFRIGERATOR IS UNPLUGGEDAND WATER TO REFRIGERATOR IS TURNED OFF BEFORE MAKING THESE REPAIRS!
