My water dispenser is making a high pitched sort of whistling sound from the filter housing. If I put on the bypass filter plug, it makes the same noise, but with higher water flow rate. With the new Every Drop filter, the water flow rate is slow as well as making the high pinched noise. What could it be?

Hi,

The problem is the water filter housing.

Here's the water filter housing for your model you can order:
Water Filter Housing WP67004106


There is a Video Included in part link that shows you how to replace it.

Let us know how it goes.

Ok thanks Jake. For now I fixed it by adding a small plastic washer. If it fails again, I’ll buy a new housing.

Ok, can you tell us where you put the small plastic washer, so others can know too?

Sure. I removed the filter, and placed the washer around the part that sticks out to enter into the filter cartridge.


Hope it helps others.
