Refrigerator Water Dispenser Slow - Water Pressure is Good
After replacing water filter in July, dispenser made a loud noise, stopped immediately and seemed to work fine. After a week or so, started slowing down. Warning light came on saying I needed a new filter in September, just a tad over 2 months since I replaced filter. I removed filter, ran the dispenser and it put out a strong stream. Put in a new filter and continued to get the strong stream for about a week. Then it started slowing down. By Early October (about 3-4 weeks after replacing filter) indicator said I needed a new filter. Water is very slow now. Sears Kenmore Model 106.56549400. Am using Whirlpool filter 4396710. Both filters came from the same box. Never had a problem with the filters before but, I suspect the problem could be the filter, and will buy the Sears filter next time. It costs much more, but if it lasts... Any guidance will be appreciated. --Dwight

thank you for your question. i can understand your concern about the water pressure slowing down. the filter you're using is a good replacement and should last for approx. 6 months or 100 gallons, which ever comes first. if a lot of water is being used, this would be normal. if you do not feel this much water is being used, it would lead a defective filter or low water pressure. i hope this will help you. if you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and i will be glad to assist you further.

sorry for the delay in responding... i guess you confirmed my suspicions that it is a defective filter. i'll order the sears filter to see if that fixes the problem, then go from there. thanks!
