Depending on how far up the growth is, a Q-tip or old fashioned pipe cleaner will do. Typically this is due to the water having the chlorine removed by the filter. I recommend that you remove your filter and install the bypass plug (if needed) and run a few gallons of unfiltered water through the system then let it sit overnight. The chlorine will kill any growth, then you can put the filter back in for filtered water. Usually doing this every few months will keep the "green" out.

Well lets see, I believe you have a whirlpool made kenmore, Your model numer should start with 106.
The problem you are having is from our drain. When you freezer defrosts the water should drain down a tube and under the refrigerator into a pan. If the tube gets clogged it will leak water into the freshfood section. To clear the drain you will need to remove everything from the freezer and remove the inside back panel in the freezer. in the center bottom under the coils and the heater you will see a tiny hole. That is your drain. If it is frozen over you will need to defrost the ice or you may need to run a smaller tube into it to clear it of an obstruction. I use a small rubber hose and I just insert it into the hole and blow on the other end. If you have something in it, it should blow out. If it does not then it may have ice in it and you can pour hot water into the drain and defrost it. Once clear you should not have any further problems. But they do make a drain heater probe to keep ice from forming inside the drain. You can get one for about $6.00. Good luck and I hope this helped you. firstname.lastname@example.org

In the water supply line to the refrigerator is normally a saddle type valve where the water supply is connected to your house water line. Trace it back and shut the valve off fully then turn it back on. When some work is done to any part of your household water system sediment may have lodged in the saddle valve causing a restriction. Closing the saddle valve and reopening it may dislodge the restriction.

If you don't get water at the valve and it has power it is likely clogged. Take it apart and find most likely a part where the rubber has softened and clogged a hole that is supposed to open up when the valve is triggered. On mine it was at the bottom of a little metal pole that the rubber was bad. Clear the clogged hole and replace the bad seal and you should now have water.
