As far as I can tell from the diagrams there is not a filter that is changeagble by customers. ie a twist in or snap out type there is a water valve under the right rear corner behind the rear cover panel. If there is a filter( some may call a screen that is why i said look at the water valve because it has a screen that can clog up) it should be in the refrigerator section upper left corner rear

Sorry but your model number doesn't register with me in the USA.
My experience tells me that the plastic water line from the filter to the water tank to the dispenser outlet is your problem. Replace those parts and you should be ok.
Hope this helps.

I am getting water to the fridge but not to the ice maker or water dispenser. though both are trying to cycle and pump.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The symtom you describe would initially make me think the water inlet valve is clogged with debris. However.. since you did not mention a model number... there are units that have an internal water filter in them. A clogged / full of debris water filter will also cause this symptom. Most units with water filters have the filter located in the lower left front grille or in the fresh food compartment. If you would provide a model number I could go much more in depth as to what you could do. Once you provide a MAKE and MODEL number I will gladly assist you at that time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

There is hardly any water flow from the faucet in the refrigerator door. A re light at the top of the refrigerator side sys the water filter is plugged. Where is the filter and how do I clean it? ...


Without knowing the manufacturer and model of your fridge, it will be impossible to tell you exactly.

Some manufacturers have the filter installed on the back side of the fridge, some will have it behind an access panel. Others will have the filter located at the bottom kick panel on the front of the fridge. Others will have it located in the refrigerator compartment, behind an access panel.

If you post the make and model, perhaps I can find the user manual for you, maybe a source for filters as well. Filters are typically replaced, and not cleaned.

Where is the water filter

Depending on the model, it is inside the fridge.
Some other models the filter is on the bottom grille, twist kind.
Look for your manual or look for those clues

Model ksrb22qaboo - Does this fridge have a filter for the water dispenser?


I checked out your model number and it appear`s that fridge is of an era when there was not many fridges with water filter`s built in to them...including yours.
The water comes from the valve directly to the reservoir, meaning no filter.

If mechanically apt or inclined, you can install an in line water filter going to your fridge, it`s essentially the same thing and they are available in a complete kit with fitting`s & filter, usually at most hardware vendor`s such as Home Depot, Lowe's etc.

Hope that answer`s your question and thanks for visiting fixya. Please take a second to rate the answer I provided for you here at fixya.

Good luck.

Where is the water filter located?

Look at the bottom of the fridge in the grille for a round trimpiece that is removeable.
It is behind the twist - off trimpiece.

Does the refrigerator model #363-9554710 have a water filter? and if so where is it located?

Hi: It would appear it was built in or about 1995 unless Sears has changed there modes numbers again. Most likely no. If there was a factory installed water filter it would hang down in the upper right section of the fresh food compartment. A plug might also be installed there to bypass it. It would look like a big plastic wing nut. If someone installed an aftermarket water filter it would be behind the fridge and you would have to pull the fridge from the wall and check. I hope this helps, Jeff
