Question about Whirlpool GD5SHAX Side by Side Refrigerator
Any recommendations on cleaning the tube in the door? Ours gets green like the parts of a fish tank and I'm not sure how to clean it out. Gross having green flakes in your filtered water due to the path after the filter the water has to travel in.
Depending on how far up the growth is, a Q-tip or old fashioned pipe cleaner will do. Typically this is due to the water having the chlorine removed by the filter. I recommend that you remove your filter and install the bypass plug (if needed) and run a few gallons of unfiltered water through the system then let it sit overnight. The chlorine will kill any growth, then you can put the filter back in for filtered water. Usually doing this every few months will keep the "green" out.

I had the same problem, I went to the local pet store and got an aquarium filter brush kit, it came with a very fine flexible brush, this worked great. It took some effort to get it around the curves, but it reached to the end and cleaned out all of the algea.
