Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!
May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
Thank you! Did you run a gallon or two of water at the door after installing the new filter to purge the air from the system?
I would run another gallon and see if it improves. Dispense until the stream is steady and does not sputter at all. Let me know what happens after, please.
Yes, if air is in the line, it will allow the water to drip at the dispenser, kind of like a siphon. If, after running another gallon, it still leaks, the water inlet valve's diaphragm has likely failed and is not shutting off. Let me know what happens, please.
Thank you, ***** ***** has stopped!
It may help to run a bit more. Is the pressure pretty good at the dispenser when you dispense?
I suspect it is just residual dripping. After you stop dispensing, does it drip only once or twice and then not drip again until you dispense again?
Yes, it is not abnormal to get a drip or two after the valve shuts off. If, however, it continues to drip, I would replace the water inlet valve.

Hmm, sounds like the valve will need to be replaced. Please allow me just a few minutes to get that information prepared for you.
No, the valve is mounted in the back of the cabinet, at the very bottom.

There may be "gunk" that has gotten in the valve from your water line after running so much water through at one time, it is hard to say.
Yes, a few drops right after dispensing would not be unexpected. Also, if there is construction in your neighborhood, you may see air in the line from open lines in the area. Let me know if it gives you trouble!
