How long has it been since the filter was replaced?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
A while - a few months perhaps
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

So it is probably not filter related if the door pressure is good. I suspect the water inlet valve is not opening all the way. If it was blocked, it would not fill at all. If filter related, the door pressure would be low. So, I would recommend replacing the inlet valve. Are you wanting to do this yourself?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No. Where would the valve be located?
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!

The valve is mounted in the back of the cabinet, behind the cover at the bottom.
