Question about KitchenAid KFCO22EVBL - French Door Bottom Mount Interior Dispensing
My Kitchenaid French door fridge's water filter won't rotate. The filter is inside the refrigerator not at the bottom. Any ideas please?
If I remember correctly it requires a quarter to half turn to disconnect in the counter clock wise direction. May take some grunt to free it. If that fail try channel lock pliers and be careful to not break it. once turned it should pull straight out. Try that as maybe its not twisted into place properly to start and just needs to be pulled straight out.

SOURCE: Hissing noise in freezer
When you observe this is your compressor quiet? Then most likely your refrigerator is in defrost mode. The water is coming off the evaporator (think of a very cold radiator) as the defrost heater element warms. This element is similar to the electric heating element in the bottom of your electric oven. the water hits it and it will hiss. This is part of the normal operation of a refrigerator. The defrost cycle usually lasts from 20-30 mins and will occur 4-6 times a day. If you are having trouble with frozen food melting then re-freezing, or the temps are on the warm side, you might need to have your defrost timer or defrost termination switch looked at.

under the freezer door there is a nob like thing. turn it and pull on it. instead of replacing it, rinse it out under runing tap water and put it back were you removed it from and push the fridge light botton 5X in a row

SOURCE: 15 month old Kitchenaid french door refrigerator - water pooling and freezing on the bottom of tthe freezer. Seems like the grids on back wall may be the culprit, as after ice is removed they seem to
more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. Over time it gradually builds and starts voer a larger area. Being you have a top mount refrigerator(freezer on top) there are air ways that connect the freezer to the fridege, which is how its cooled. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt
If thats not an option that you want to use the actual repair method would be to 1) unplug the machine 2) empty everything out of the freezer so you'll have room to work 3) take all the shelving and baskets out 4) locate the screws on the rear wall inside the freezer and remove them 5) take the back panel off exposing the evaporator coils ( the aluminum ) 6) directly below the coils is a trough of sorts and the drain is usually in the middle and runs out the bottom, remove the ice by carefully chipping it out or by using a hair dryer or hot water. 7) once all the ice is gone, the drain is visible and water can flow smnoothly down the drain dry the area and reassemble.
Note that on your machine you should pull the machine away from the wall so you can get behind it and remove the lower panel. Locate the drain tube that runs from the freezer, usually a black or white tube, and at the end verify it there is a rubber piece that looks like a duck bill of you will. If it is there, grab said piece and remove it from the drain line. This is the cause of the water not draining out of the freezer
