Dispenses Small Particles in Water

My LRSC-21935 is about 18 months old and I change water filters every six months.  Lately, the family noticed tiny semitransparent  "floaters" in the water and won't drink it - a major marital crisis is in progress!  Only found one article on the web that suggests some unknown bacterial/algae growth in the water tank or lines.  How do I flush/clean the system or disassemble the door to get at the offending components?

I would try cleaning all of the hoses and components with a little bleach and water, and just run the mixture through a few times and then continually run clean water through the system to rinse it and anything that may be flaking off should hopefully be removed if the problem is coming from the refrigerator itself, which I believe is your problem since the filter should be stopping the particles so most likely something is flaking off of the water reservoir or a hose in your fridge which if the cleaning doesn't fixed, can get replaced and that should solve your problem.

Let me know how this goes and good luck.

Where is the water filter what is the part number and how do you change it


Hello Dwane;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number of your unit. The water filter location is dependent on the model number. The model number is located on a label on the inside of the fresh food section liner.

You have a bottom freezer. In general the water filter is located in the upper right hand corner of you right side fresh food section.

You may have a screw on the side panel to remove the cover, or some retainer clips, of which you must squeeze the cover housing to remove, or you may have free access.

Once locating, or accessing the water filter, grab the base and turn 1/4 turn clockwise to release and pull down. Insert the new water filter, insert and turn counter wise to the right.

Purge the air out of the filter system. Water filters are dry and have air in them. With your water dispenser fill several cups until al of the air is purged out. There will spiriting sounds.

You replace your water filter when you notice your ice cubes are small & when the water flow from your dispenser is low. The change water indicator light is a timer. It is set to cycle every six months. It is like a egg timer. It is not connected to anything.
Depending on the size of your family, and the usage you may need to change the water filter every six months or every 1-1/2- 2 years.

Im at the six month point, red light flashing, which of the filters do i replace and do i need to sanitize the storage tank?


The filters that you should replace every the six months are the two pre/post filters (FQROPF). The membrane (FQROMF) needs to be replaced every 1 to 2 years. During the filter change, bacteria could be introduced, so it is recommended that you sanitize the tank while changing the filters. Here are the filters you need to replace:

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

Water and ice taste bad


How long has it been since you replaced the filter in the waterline, or in the refrigerator section waterline? This filter is to be replaced usually every six months. This filter is usually a canister about the size of a car oil filter and is usually located in the upper right side of the fridge. May be hidden by a plastic shield over the light. Replacing this filter should eliminate your problem. Remember to read the instructions that come with the new filter as to filling it with water before installing or not and the purge time or amount before using it for drinking, to flush any particulate out of the new filter. Usually 60 seconds of running water from door in to a glass and dumping that water...or run water into a glass til it dispenses clear water. Remember to turn off the water to the fridge and have a towel handy when replacing the filter. Some refrigerators have a function where by when you unscrew the old filter it automatically shuts off the water, but I would not trust that to actually work...Ha!

LOUD BUZZING SOUND WHEN DISPENSING WATER THRU THE DOOR


The water control valve on rear of refrigerator is weakening. That is typical sound for a coil that opens the side that dispenses water or ice tray refills to vibrate or buzz when weakening. If I had you r model number I could give you the part number. They are not expensive and easy to replace. Thanks, Sea Breeze

My Keurig dispenses about 3oz of water on next to largest setting


I JUST fixed (I Hope!) my 11 month old B60 by taking a paper clip and a straightened safety pin to the top of the coffee maker (where the top pin punctures the top of the cup) and the BOTTOM pin which punctures the bottom of the cup. (remove the bottom dark brown holder by pushing up on it).

After one or two attempts, I ran water through it without the coffee cup, then used a decaf cup and brewed it just fine....

Dirty pieces of ''onionskin'' in water after changing water filt


Same problem in my 1 year old Maytag side-by-side. I let the stuff it sit in a cup for about 5-7 days, and it turned into a fuzzy mess of mold. Obviously a problem. However, Maytag WILL NOT admit a problem. Home Depot would not override Maytag's decisions. They did arrange for an appliance repair company to replace internal tubes, but after about a month of drinking it again, (WITH A NEW $35 FILTER) I found lots of new MOLD last night. Filled a pitcher a couple of times to find six "onion-like" pieces. This has been an ordeal of about 9 months. My family has had unusual illness (colds, flus, stomach problems) for the past 9 months. I am about to take it to the city dump.
