I looked at the online parts list, but didn't see my Water Filter. It is in the upper right corner of the fridge. I got it loose but don't know how to release the two hoses, short of cutting them off. Thank You Denny

Re: Leaking Water Filter mount.
Check this link.(LINK) press the blue word (control or icemaker ) in location part and it should show you the picture of what you need. It looks like a fitting assy. This means the end of the fitting connected to the hose has a outer/inner ring. This means the ring ocer the hose shuffs into the assy to close. Take a screwdriver and pull the ring outward, (wont come off) just far enough out. Push the hose a little deeper now while holding the outer ring you should now be able to pull the hose out.

Your refrigerator does not have a water filter i looked at the parts breakdown and see no listing for a filter...if the breakdown is wrong and it does have a filter it would be in the upper right corner of the ceiling in the fresh food (ref) section above the upper most shelf
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.
Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.
In searching a parts listing for your model i do not see a listing for the filter and believe your model doesnt have one. If it did it would be in the fresh food compartment in the ceiling in the upper right corner above the upper most shelf. A external filter could be added to the water supply line where it could be easily accessed and replaced. Filter kits are sold at Sears Lowe's HomeDepot or your local appliance parts store
For Samsung side-by-side refrigerators, there are two possible locations. One is in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator. The other is behind the veggie drawer.
To access the filter, either remove the top glass shelf or the vegetable bin. Turn off the water to the refrigerator. If no filter is currently in use, remove the cap. If a filter is in use, remove the old filter. Turn clockwise to remove the old filter. Save the cap to reinstall if the fridge is ever used without the filter. Note the date when you put in the new filter and place the sticker on the filter. Remove the red cap from the new filter and align the unlock mark with the filter mark on the filter housing in the refrigerator. (Looks like an unlocked padlock with the u part turned 180 degrees from the rest of the lock). Turn the new filter counter-clockwise 90 degrees until the lock symbol (closed padlock) lines up with the mark on the housing. Use steady firm pressure - it will be hard to turn. This ensures a tight seal. Turn on the water line and check for leaks. If the filter isn't leaking replace the shelf or the vegetable drawer.
1. Look for the water filter cartridge. On some refrigerators it is located in the back, upper right corner of the refrigerator compartment. Some refrigerators have it in a tubular-like slot under the door and accessible from outside. 2. Remove the old cartridge. On the cartridges that are located inside the refrigerator, the cartridge should be slowly turned to the left. Don't pull down on the cartridge. A small amount of water may drip. On the type that are under the door, follow the arrow labeling for the direction to unscrew it. Slide it outside. 3. To replace a filter, fill the replacement cartridge with water from the tap. This will speed up water flow after installation. Run water from the dispenser for three minutes after replacing a filter to clear the line. Refrigerators with a filter warning light require you to reset the light. Press and hold the Reset Water Filter button to do that.
as far as I can tell from the diagrams there is not a filter that is changeagble by customers. ie a twist in or snap out type there is a water valve under the right rear corner behind the rear cover panel. If there is a filter( some may call a screen that is why i said look at the water valve because it has a screen that can clog up) it should be in the refrigerator section upper left corner rear
It is very unlikely that you have a leaking water line inside the fridge/freezer, as they are protected from damage. If you have water dripping from the ice maker inside the freezer and/or the dispenser in the door, the most likely problem is the valve that supplies water to the ice maker.
You'll need to replace the water inlet valve that supplies water to the ice maker. This is not the same valve that supplies water to the fridge (I believe the yellow colored valve) but rather, it is the blue valve, mounted just above the main water inlet valve.
At the bottom back right side of the fridge, you can remove the covering and see both the yellow and blue valves. The yellow one (on the bottom) is the incoming water control valve, while the blue (upper one) supplies water to the ice maker.
The part runs about $45-50 if you get it yourself, or around $185.00 for a repair person to come out and do the job for you. It should only take about 20-30 minutes to do it yourself with a small 1/4" nutdriver. Part available from Searspartsdirect.com or several other online and local stores. Just call around and give them your fridge model number and serial number, located on the inside of the fresh food section of the fridge - on the "ceiling" just inside the door.
