This is probably from the reservoir behind the crispers' in the fridge. It's a common problem and can be fixed by replacing the reservoir. They are usually replaced with a coil of water line instead of the original type. You can search for parts on line or go to an appliance parts store.

I have a side-by-side ref. It use external filter. I notice that water out of filter (before going into ref) is clear but when I collect water from water dispenser of my ref is cloudy and some very tiny...


was the outside filter factory? by this I mean does the unit have an internal filter ? if no, then you need to flush the system, clean the outside dispenser components, lime or rust has accumulated on the dispenser if the water from the outgoing side of the filter is clear ( is the ice clear and fed by this same water source? if so,, its just outside build up that needs to be cleaned

We changed the filter to the water dispenser but


run about 2 gallons of water through the filter, if it did not help - the stuff is coming out the tubing between the filter and the dispenser. Check water hardness. If you have water softener, make sure it works properly.

My Kenmore refrigerator has ice and water dispensers in the door...the problem is that the water that comes out has small white particles in it. The filter indicator light shows that the filter is good....


I would start by changing the filter more regulary. More than what the filter light says. The white particles is hard water deposits. I had the same problem and I just change the filter more that the light tells me and that solved my problem. Good luck.

Water filter won't come out so I can change it.


I had same prob when I changed filter first time...if it is up in the top corner of fridge, you'll need some kind of rubber gripper to use cause the condensation makes the filter holder slippery. Just grab on to it and turn counterclockwise. It should just screw out, take out the old filter, replace w/new and screw back in. On some fridges, the whole part you screwed out has to be replaced instead of just a filter inside it. Hope this helps.

Particles floating in whirlpool filtered water.


okay - we have had this same problem for around 6 weeks - We called a service repairman to come out and he said that these "floaties" are harmless bacteria. We should disconnect the filter and flush the system by using 1 gallon of water a day (wasting it) after the chlorine in the water is allowed to build up again then the "floaties"- bacteria- will go away---- gross :-( We will see if it works---
