    Yes, thats true.

    Its likely the filter base thats bad making it leak. Seen many myself and replaced the base and all was fine.

    The filter base is #139 here, its the part where the filter pushes into:

    Ok, you mean when the ice maker fills it sprays from the filter area?

    Thats an odd one, never seen that happen before.

    But its likely still the filter base you will need to change.

    Updated info. I was over there this morning. I had dropped the whole control assembly and let it hand down in order to see where it was leaking. After several tests I determined that on the right side filter, where the clear plastic filter housing was glued to the white part at the rear, there was a hair line crack going about 3/4 or the way around the cylinder. Under pressure water was forced out through the crack. I wonder what caused the crack? Customer is picking up a new filter . Hopefully he can find his receipt from the other one.

    Oh, yes I've seen that happen once before myself, don't know that cause, but the new filter will fix it.

    Here's the filter for this model:
    Manufacturer's Number: WF2CB
