Some times if you have an imblance of salts within your pool you will see this "cloudy water" you are referring to. Make sure that the water is cloudy before entering the filter and not the other way around.
Next, make sure that the current gasket/o-ring that is being used has silicone based grease applied to the gasket/o-ring surface. When you replace the filter and reset the oring and gasket enusre that the proper tightening torque is achieved at each bolt. Make sure that you cross tighten the bolts. Much like replacing a wheel on a car.
Finally, if all of these steps have not helped you then you can make your own gasket by either using "Gasket Paper" or "Liquid Gasket". Advantage to using Gasket Paper is that it is less messy and easier to change out.
With Gasket Paper, make sure that you trace out the previous Gasket on Gasket Paper before installing. I would still recommend using a light cote of Silicone Based Greased around the new gasket before installation.

How and where do you change water filter


From the KitchenAid Manual:

The water filter is located in the upper right-hand corner of the
refrigerator compartment.

Replacing the Water Filter
To purchase a replacement water filter, model 67003523 Part
Number 4396395, contact your dealer or call 1-800-442-9991
U.S.A. or 1-800-807-6777 Canada.
IMPORTANT: Air trapped in the water system may cause water
and filter to eject. Always dispense water for at least 2 minutes
before removing the filter or blue bypass cap.

1. Turn filter counterclockwise to remove.
2. Remove sealing label from replacement filter and insert the
filter end into the filter head.
3. Turn the filter clockwise until it stops. Snap the filter cover
closed.
4. Flush the water system. Depending on your model, see
"Water Dispenser" or "Water and Ice Dispensers."
NOTE: The dispenser feature may be used without a water filter
installed. Your water will not be filtered. If this option is chosen,
replace the filter with the blue bypass cap.

Pump is blowing cloudy water back into pool


Cloudy water is the bane of sand filters!. I suggest letting filter run day and night. Do not backwash until the pressure rises 8 - 10 pounds above clean starting pressure. Do not try to vacuum or stir up the sediment. when water clears, vacuum to waste. Keep the hose running while vacuuming. A dirty filter is a better filter (up to a point). At a higher pressure the filter will trap more of the fine particles that are clouding your water.

Is my pool pump filtering correctly?


The cloudiness or turbidity of your water indicates a leaking or damaged filter membrane/element. The green color is due to the growth of algae. Are you using the right algaecide? Is the dose right? You have to consult a water treatment specialist to know these.

Pressure on the EC65 is always high


Certainly sounds like a filter problem. Here's a couple of things to try.#1. i don't know how you cleaned the filters but clean them again with a good filter cleaner/degreaser.#2. After a good cleaning, get a bucket large enough to hold the filter fingers in and give them an acid bath. They recommend a 20 to 1 ratio of water to acid (muriatic) but I personally don' think thats strong enough. Use a good amount of acid and let the fingers soak for a good ten or fifteen minutes. (always add acid to water, not water to acid) Rinse and reassemble filter. If that does'nt solve problem, I think it's time to replace filter.

Pool filter not doing its job


try using a clarifier that you add into the skimmer such as Clearex 500.
The flocculent only makes particles drop to the pool floor, a liquid clarifier actually coates the sand and will filter smaller particles. Also, check the o-rings on the backwash valve. If the o-ring(s) are damaged it may be letting some water bypass the filter.
