Kenmore refrigerator water dispenser problem

Our kenmore refrigerator is about 5 years old. Within the past year we have noticed that the water dispenser will dispense something with the water that looks like a wet piece of paper. If you let it stick to the side of your glass, it eventually looks slimy. You can also lift it out of the glass and it seems to be some sort of slime. It has nothing to do with the filter. We have changed the filter several times in the past year with no change to the algae/slime. It seems to be on the sides of the tubing that runs through the refrigerator before being dispensed. Any suggestions on how to get rid of whatever it is?

I saw a post regarding a Kenmore refrigerator that mentioned a problem with slime in the water line. We have the exact same problem but with a KitchenAid KSRS27IKSS01 model. Has anyone found a resolution?

    I seem to have the same problem though I would describe the stuff in the water dispensed by the fridge chilled water spigot as flexible translucent skins that float around in the water. I too have changed the fridge filters and even removed them to try and flush the stuff out of the fridge tubing but it's still there. But I still have a question if anyone is following this thread. Do I understand NextGuy to mean there's algae in the water source or source pipes supply? We have a well which supplies water to the whole house which is treated and shows no signs of the "skins" in the water up to the fridge. The skins appear only between the back fridge water input and front water outlet spigot. Does that mean the algae is invisible or does not materialize until it gets to the fridge? My kitchenaid model is KSRD25FKWH01 mfg date 07-01

You have a partially plugged drain, causing water to flow too slowly. Try reaming out the drain with a long stiff wire until water flows thru it like a faucet. You may have to unplug the unit for a day to get every part warm enough. Hope this helps!

Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water


Look up through the ice despencer on the front door of the freezer. Is the flapper door open? If so it needs to be fixed. If its not then try leaving the freezer door open for 3+ hours to defrost the frozen line in the door. If that doesnt work, the water valve must be changed.(located behind fridge, take off back cord board panel at bottom, the valve is blue)... GOODLUCK!

its possible that your water tank has frozen up, try turning the refrig off and leave the doors open for about 10-15 mins and try it again. if that works just reset temp controls a little lower..
