When I do a search on line for the water filter replacements, I get the replacement for a Kenmore refrigerator. Am I able to use this one or is there a special one for the Galaxy? Are these two compatable?

The Kenmore 106.9552981 does not have a water filter for the ice maker. Sears Parts Direct has the parts diagram here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/6bcxngyrj2-000582/kenmore-1069552981-refrigerator-parts . The models with a water filter will have the filter in the refrigerator compartment, on the back of the refrigerator or near the middle of the toe kick grill. So I checked the cabinet and refrigerator liner diagrams first. I also used the part search feature on the above page.
Get a charcoal filter from home depot (about 50.00) and install behind refrig or in cabinet . Filter has replaceable cartridges like for charcoal , lime , calcium . Installs in supply line to refridg . Do not recommend the 11.00 filter installed in line , where you replace the whole filter . Get the replaceable cartridge type .
you need tro shut off the water supply to the refrigerator before replacing the filter. After replacing be sure to run the water to get the air out of the lines Thanks for using FixYa and don't forgat to rate this reply.
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.
Some tubes turn brown gradually with age. This is normal. But if yours is not made of that material (not sure what its called), then it could be that the pipe is dirty. If this be the case, it is definitely better to get the line replaced, as it is definitely a health concern. I would recommend getting a filter fitted to the line as well, just as a precaution..
