Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a side-by-side Kenmore Elite refrigerator. There is hardly any water flow out of the water faucet on the outside of the freezer door. A red light in the top inside of the refrigerator door says that the water filter is clogged. Where is the water filter and how do I clean it? Thanks.

Hi,

1) The water filter is located on the front panel down near the floor.
2)Push the release button located just to the left of the water filter grille cap, this will release the filter.
3)Remove the grille cap from the filter by twisting it counterclockwise.
4)Reinstall the grille cap on the new water filter.
5)Insert the new water filter in the refrigerator making sure the words on the filter are the correct side up.
6)Push the water filter in until it clicks in place.

Be sure you flush out the water from the new filter after you replace it.Kenmore recommends you run the water out of the water and ice maker for a few minutes to flush out.This also helps remove air bubbles from the system. If you don’t do this it’s possible that the water dispenser may not work properly due to an air lock.

Ice maker water flow continously


That is cause by a defective dual water control valve. Just like a leaking faucet the water will continue to leak until the dual water control valve is replaced.

I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator/freezer. I am getting really slow flow from water dispensor (outside freezer side door). It takes 20 seconds to fill up a glass of water.


check to see if your ice cubes are well formed or hollow / if hollow replace your filter 1st and if no good replace your water line / if cubes are large and well formed the replace your water valve to fix your water problem.
