Without a model number, I would have to guess. I can tell you that most come with either a filter or a filter bypass plug. This part takes the place of the filter so that it's your choice to use one or not. It's loctaed inside the fresh food section where the filter would normally go. The Elete models I have worked on do have a place for a filter. Go to www.partselect.com and enter your model number. This will bring up diagrams of your unit. You will be able to use them to locate your filter if there is one and you can also buy one from here if you need one.
I hope this helps

That depends if you want filtered water or not. if you like the taste of your tap water, then no. but if you have hard or well water, you'll want one to keep the pipes and solenoid clean.

Have a Kenmore Elite Side by Side and there is water running down the side of the fridge which appears to be coming from the water filter. Already changed it twice.


Did you flush the system after changing the filter? Air can cause water to leak if it not flushed after each filter change. It takes about 6 to 7 minutes to get all the air flushed out. I hope that helps...

Kenmore fridge with a strong chemical taste in water and ice


Every time you replace a water filter you want to purge about 3-4 gallons. Or maybe the filter was bad.

Water filter stuck on my Kenmore Fridge


I had the same problem. I coudn't get the knob to turn. I ended up taking the front grill off so I could get a better grip on the knob. Once I did that I still have to put a lot of pressure on the knob to turn it but that did the trick. When I got it turned a quarter turn then it was easy to pull the filter out. Hope this helps!
