The water filter is that round looking thing at the bottom of the refrigerator on the front grill. I can see it in the picture you provided. Sometimes, in higher end models, there will be a cover that turns and snaps out. Most units just have a place to grab with your fingers and turn counter-clockwise (to the left as if you were unscrewing it), but don't unscrew it. It only takes a quarter turn to disconnect the filter.
Pull out what you just disconnected and you will have in your hand a plastic (or metal) canister that is the filter. Go buy an exact replacement and usually you have to take the "handle" you used to remove it off the old filter and place it on the new filter.
Oh, probably a good idea to turn your ice maker off and block anyone from using the water dispenser or better yet: pull the refrigerator out and turn the water off.
Good Luck!

Ice in the path of air flow to fridge. The freezer also kkeps the fridge cold via a fan that blows the cold air from feezer to fridge.

We have a kenmore side by side fridge # 106-53644300. The ice maker quite working. Could this be due to needing to replace water filter?

Probably not due to the filter. Do you get a strong, steady stream of water from the dispenser? If not you need to look at the saddle valve, which is where the refrigerator gets water from the house's plumbing. Try screwing the saddle valve in as tight as you can then opening it up all the way. If that dosen't improve water flow you may need to call a plumber.

If you have a good strong stream of water to the fridge something may be wrong with the icemaker itself. It could also be the water valve on the fridge. Your best bet would be to call a professional.

Kenmore side-by-side not dispensing ice or water, the ice maker has been replaced, no water going into the tray. I cannot locate the water filter, does this model have one?

Don't know what is the model number of your fridge. 1.Need check electric water valve under the fridge. If that fridge made by GE (Kenmore just a Sears brand name and they use several others manufacturers for refrigeration), usually it's a frozen plastic water supply line inside freezer door. You could unplug fridge for 24 hours (you have to put food from freezer to other freezer).
