Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore side by side dirty water

I install a new water filter after a year except I forgot to turn it when I ran the 3 gallons of water through it. I did see no problem with the water. However, when I did turn after running the water through it, it now always seems to have a film of something floating in the newly dispensed water. What do I need to do. I have run about 20 gallons of water through it and it still has the problem. Is it a broken membrane in the filter and I need a new filter(thought I read that somewhere)? I purchased a kenmore side X side three years ago and after hooking it up noticed stuff floating almost like "jellyfish" floating around in the water. After running lots of water the problem never got better. I then bought a new PUR basic filter. still the same problem. Probable should have contacted Kenmore right away, but we have a reverse osmosis system so the drinking was never an issue, until I started looking it up and found someone else that had the same problem.

    I have the same problem with particles floating in the water. We have replaced the water line and changed filters many times as well as flushing it many times. Is there something we are missing?

The problem might be linked ot your reverse osmosis system itself, something about filtering and storing previously filtered water, which if i remember correctly creates a "harmless" bio film the consistency of what appears to be brine shrimp sized particles floating in water. so i would remove the filter from the refig and flush out again.

In the toe grill of your reefrigerator you should find a filter cap that is covering your filter. Rotate this cap to the left 1/4 of a turn you should feel the filter release from the housing then pull the filter out and discard it. Take the Filter cap from the old filter and reinstall on your new filter. Install your new filter in to the housing applying slight pressure turn the filter 1/4 of a turn to the right. You should feel the filter lock in to place. Now with a BIG container go to your water dispenser and dispense about 3 gallons of water.

then change your filter. the new filter could be different with the old filter. check the new filter, see if there is odor removal and taste removal with it.

if not then get the filter with carbon filter, odor and taste removal.

then with a new filter, run about 5 gallons of water before using the water for drinking.

Kenmore side by side dirty water


The original cap for the filter, was supposed to be a plug bypass, for application of outside undersink filter. Using, this, one can check to see if the filter was the contaminant here. You need to be, more specific, to explain a problem. Something is too too generasl,,, color, consistancy, odor, quantity, filter has a fine fine filtrationl unit on the outlet, and if defective the charcoal residue may come out. You can remove filer and pass suppy water thru and review the effluent coming out. ??? Regards, fmauka
