Water Tube w/ Algae

Any recommendations on cleaning the tube in the door? Ours gets green like the parts of a fish tank and I'm not sure how to clean it out. Gross having green flakes in your filtered water due to the path after the filter the water has to travel in.

    I have algae that starts at the bottom of the tube where the tube enters the door and goes all the way to the dispensing tube. We do not have chlorine in our local water supply. Is it easy to remove the tube from the door to clean it out?
    I have a Whirlpool SS25AFXLQ00 Side by Side.

Depending on how far up the growth is, a Q-tip or old fashioned pipe cleaner will do. Typically this is due to the water having the chlorine removed by the filter. I recommend that you remove your filter and install the bypass plug (if needed) and run a few gallons of unfiltered water through the system then let it sit overnight. The chlorine will kill any growth, then you can put the filter back in for filtered water. Usually doing this every few months will keep the "green" out.

I had the same problem, I went to the local pet store and got an aquarium filter brush kit, it came with a very fine flexible brush, this worked great. It took some effort to get it around the curves, but it reached to the end and cleaned out all of the algea.

How to treat my Betta fish ick


  1. The first thing you should do is remove your betta from its current tank. You will want to set up a separate temporary container to house your betta while you clean his regular tank. Be sure to use clean water that has been treated with water conditioner. If a separate tank is not available, you will want to do a full water change on the tank along with a thorough cleaning. Again, be sure to add the appropriate amount of water conditioner before adding your betta back to the tank.
  2. Ick thrives in cold water, so after you have a clean tank setup, you will want to install a tank heater to warm the temperature gradually to 82 degrees. Be sure to use the proper size heater for your tank size. Also, make sure the heater has a cut off switch or something to keep the temperature from going over 82 degrees. You don't want to cook your fish!
  3. Now you are ready to treat the ick. You will need an antiparasitic medication. Try Kordon Rid Ich Plus you can pick it up at most pet stores. If they do not carry it, ask for another antiparasitic appropriate for betta fish. Use according to package directions.
  4. Continue treatment according to directions.
How to keep ick away:

  • Continue using heater to keep water at 82 degrees
  • Do frequent water changes with water conditioner added to clean water
  • Use aquarium salt: it is inexpensive and easy to use. Purchase from pet store and follow package directions for use.

    Good luck! I hope your fish gets better!

How to clean the gravel in your fish tank?


In order to properly clean your aquarium you should follow the next step by step manual.

You should fill half a bucket with dirty fish tank water. Then fill the rest with clean tap water. Then you should mix them together, the new and the dirty water so there will be no injure to the fish by drastically changing the water.

Place your fish in the bucket.

Unplug the aquarium and the aquarium equipment from the electricity.

Drain the tank completely.

Take two cupful of dirty gravel and put it aside. Since cleaning gravel with tap water will destroy most of the waste eating bacteria, it is necessary to save some gravel with bacteria for later on.

Take the rest of the gravel and put it into two buckets.

Place a garden hose into one bucket and turn the faucet on full blast. Frequently rinse and stir the gravel until the water in the bucket gets clean.

Repeat the process with the second bucket.

Clean the aquarium tank with hot tap water without using any soap or cleaning materials. Clean the internal parts of the aquarium and then wipe the insides with a paper towel.

Put all the gravel back inside the tank in addition with the rest of the dirty gravel.

Refill the tank with clean cold tap water. Make sure you add a de-chlorinating agent to the tap water.

Plug in all the electrical parts.

Return all the fish to the tank.

Have bissell little green model 1400. Having trouble cleaning the holding tank (dirty water) tank. The tank comes out but the stuff doesn't rinse out - its gross. I'd like to take the holding...


Do not take it apart.If you do,it is then broken.Put about1/ cup of powdered dish washer detergent,in the bowl and fill with hot water.Let that soak for a few hours.And as the shampoo folks say,rinse and repeat,if needed.This also will clean tubs,toilets,and all ceramic tile very well.

I have a Woods refrigerator that is all fridge, no freezer compartment. Model # RFA17NAC. s/n 07605297JG. It is leaking water on the inside of the fridge and collects on the fridge floor. No manual came...


Hi Linda. We have the identical model of Woods all-fridge and
experienced this problem several times over the course of several
months. Hopefully this is still timely.





The short answer is that the clear flexible-plastic drain tube that runs
from the inside rear of the fridge down to the catch tray (underneath
the cabinet, next to the floor, behind the kick-plate) is sufficiently
plugged (with some kind of gunk, probably from a spill inside the
fridge) to cause a back-up. I suppose the inner diameter of the tube is
maybe 3/16" so it can easily get clogged. Consequently, the water runs
down the inside back of the fridge & eventually ends up in the
depressions below the crispers. In our case, after those depressions
filled (and I hadn\'t noticed), the water would run out onto the floor.





Initially, I used a fine wire to poke some of the gunk out of the tube
but I didn\'t get it all out. Just enuff to let some of the water get
thru, but the tube would plug up again. After a few repeats of the
problem, separated by a month or 2 each time, I decided a more "drastic"
tube cleaning was required.





I suppose a good strong compressed air blast might clear the tube
completely, but I didn\'t have that available so I had to use a
semi-flexible wire & sorta gunk out the tube. It\'s been about 1.5
yrs. since that more thorough tube cleaning & the problem hasn\'t
come back, so I think the tube got plugged from a spill in the fridge
(which thankfully hasn\'t re-occurred... yet).





BTW, I don\'t have the manual either, but the lower part of the tubing is
accessible from behind the fridge. I didn\'t pull it completely out
(which might have disconnected it from its fitting), I simply reamed it
out while it was in-place.





Hope this has been of some help to you.
