New filter but water dispenser still not working

Kenmore side by side indoor water dispenser

I knew the filter (located inside the refrigerator) was due for a change but one day it completely stopped flowing. Thinking it was the filter clogged I went and got a new filter and replaced it. With the new one installed I hear the filter filling and building pressure but it never gets to the dispenser. The refrigerator was never moved. The line is completely enclosed in the back with the only visible section visible in the front at the bottom on the freezer side feeding the door and ultimately the dispenser.Do you have any ideas?Craig

Changed my water filter on my Kenmore refrigerator. Now the water dispenser keeps dripping? The water filter is located at the bottom of the frig.


You have air in the line from the new filter . Run about 1-2 quarts of water thru the dispensor to remove the air in the line .

Water dispenser dispenses particles into the water. Drained about 7 pitchers of water. Particles are smaller but still coming. Restaurant water looks better than this. What's happening and what can I do?...


first; turn the water of to the machine next, remove the water line in front of the filter using a large bowl place the loose hose into the bowl and turn the water on for a minute turn the water off and, check the bowl for particles then reattach the filter and do the same thing on the other side of the refrigerator if this water is clean the interior refrigerator filter must be checked usually it is the carbon filter inside the refrigerator that is bad you can find the drawings location and, procedure for this part at: searsparts.com

Water dispenser not working but ice maker works


It could be the water valve located on the back, lower left corner of the freezer. On the outside. It's fairley easy to test. Just swap your water lines around. If you get water from the door then you need a knew water valve. If not then it could be the circut board in the dispenser. You will have to slide the face off of the dispenser. Hope this helps.
