Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I just bought a brand new replacement Whirlpool refrigerator ice and water filter. After installing it in my refrigerator, I ran the water through the line for about 15 minutes. I kept seeing small opaque particles in the water. It's a week later and the particles are still in our water.

When I changed my filter in my Whirlpool refrigerator, my refrigerator stopped making ice and dispensing water. How do I get it to start back making ice and dispensing water.


If you still have the old filter replace the new with the previous. If all works OK check new filter for blockage or manufacturing defect. Usually most units will work with no filter installed.

It is likely that you have not fully assembled the new filter in the location.

The filter can be removed and there should be no leak and the ice maker and water dispenser should work just like before except the water is not filtered. This feature is available for customers who have whole house filters.

Hope this helps?

Whirlpool ED22PW water not reaching ice maker or front dispenser


It doesn't matter if a whirlpool or any other brand is new or not, if you don't use an inlet water filter the water will taste like **** and sediment will deposit and cause catastrophic ice maker and water dispenser failure.

Water Filter removal/installation


Bought the filter replacement and read the instructions. Turn off ice maker and replace filter. Remove by turning 1/4 turn to the right. pull out old filter. Remove cover, slide off, replace cover by sliding on the new filter. Push new filter in to the holding, hold so cover is horizontal, push in and turn back clockwise till the cover is horizontal to the floor.

GE side by side refrigerator: water/ice dispensor


I bought a brand new smartwater replacement filter and after a very short time, my water stopped coming through the door.. took out the new replacement filter and inserted a brand new one .. problem solved.. apparently some of the g.e. smartwater filter replacement cartridges don't have the high enough two plastic inserts which are attached to them at the top of the filter when you screw them on... if you have taken your cartridge in and out a few times, i think it wears down the plastic so it doesn't fit properly and won't put up whatever it is supposed to push up to make the water come through.. I personally think this is a g.e. problem with the replacement filters...

Particles in ice cubes


Most new water/ice systems have break-in procedures in the manual, including flush a couple gallons of water through the water dispenser and disposing the first 24hrs of ice.

Are the particles present in the filtered water before adding ice? If so, you can probably assume the contamination is from the water tank so you should flush several gallons of water through the system to get rid. If the particles are present after adding ice, try pulling out the ice bin and dumping the ice.
