Hi. Welcome to JA.

The water hammer has probably damaged the water inlet solenoid. That is the only part that could be effected by the water hammering.

What you need to do is install a water hammer arrestor on the outlet at the wall.

The water inlet repair procedure is on page 33 of the service manual.

Please advise if you require further information or assistance.

When I do not use the filter on and I use the bypass plug it works fine but the water is not filtered. This just started when I changed the filter to the replacement for the puri II filter. I have ordered a replacement water inlet solenoid and will replace that when it comes in.

I thought at first it was due to air being in the line but that seems to purge out fine and works for a while with the new filter on.
