Question about KitchenAid KSRS25IL Side by Side Refrigerator

"skins" in water, meant to ask Marineo612

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

    We have had the same problem with our Kitchen Aid refrigerator. Did you find a solution? Kitchen Aid has been no help. We have tried a difeferent filter because we were told that the filter may be reducing too much of the chlorine in the water and that the algae grows as when the water sits in the reservoir

No Water going in to the fridge


Hi Norm,

Most fridges don't need a motor to run in order to dispense water. A simple on / off solenoid on the water line (same for the ice maker) that makes a click when changing from off to on and on to off is usually all anyone hears (the ice maker makes rumbling sounds and you can hear ice falling into the bin - too).

Check for ice. If it has a maker and it is making ice, the problem could be a defective water dispenser switch, solenoid or other circuit component or wire. If no ice, I'd suspect a filter or water supply issue.

Make sure the filter is fully inserted and twisted into place. Many filters have marks to align when 1) inserting and 2) to let you know when it is installed correctly. When sure it is installed correctly - try to dispense water again. Many fridges will dispense water without a filter. Check your manual before trying this though! If not working still, remove the filter and try to dispense water. If you're able to dispense water, the problem is either the installation of the filter or the filter itself. Try to re-install it correctly. Try to dispense water again.

If it still doesn't work - call the plumber back and ask why there's no water. Or - try this yourself:

Locate the point of attachment to the domestic water supply that the plumber used. There should be a valve to turn the water on and off. If off, turn ON. Try to dispense water again.

If that doesn't work - check to see if the fridge has pinched, kinked or crushed the water supply line. You may need to move the fridge forward to gain access to the water line and connection point on the fridge. Repair or replace the line as needed and route in such a way that moving the fridge in or out will not cause it to damage the line again.

Good luck!

Two possibilities:
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.

How old is the fridge? Mine lieterally caught on fire at the start device last weekend. My fridge was manufactured in July 2001. Be careful, The fridge I have is model# ED5FHGXKQ00. I am currently requesting a recall be made by Whirlpool on this appliance.
Other than that it could just be that the ice maker line has frozen or the "arm" in the ice chest is stuck and can't raise itself to pump water directly into the ice trays. Either way be very careful. I hope this was helpful.

Ice maker & water dispenser won't work


I recently found out that the water supply lines are coiled up inside behind the frige on the refrigerator side moving the unit will cause those coiled up lines to shift to the freezer side of the unit, causing a freeze up,take the cardboard lower back off and move those lines further away from the freezer side of the unit, as one of those coiled up lines are to chill the water for the dispenser and the other is supply for the icemaker, this should fix your problem, becareful not to move them too far away from the freezer side as they are meant to chill the water for the dispenser

Same thing happened to us. A baffle that conducts air from the freezer to the fridge gets stuck in the "open" position and needs to be replaced. That'll fix that problem but watch for others including the water dispenser that spontaneously begins blasting water across your floor. We've dealt with this twice.
