When putting in my water filter I am pushing in until it clicks securely in place. After I do this there is no water that is coming from the dispenser. Also no Ice will be made. Yet when I remove the water filter, the water will flow from the dispenser . And the ice maker will work. I'm guessing the problem is with the water filter housing? or my next guess would be the cluster of water valves in the back of refrigerator need to be replaced? What is my next move .
Thanks

We've seen a lot of problems with water filters coming from eBay or Amazon not fitting. Is this a new filter? Is it this one?

Thanks for the quick reply. Yes this is a new kenmore filter that is brand new and sealed that I am using. I did buy this off of Ebay. I did notice that after the filter is pushed in all the way and doesn't work . If I pull it back about 1/8th of an inch or less it has water flow but then it will leak.

Yep, new and sealed in a box and they don't work. lol That's an old style filter and the only people still selling them are on eBay and Amazon. Click on the link I gave you and you'll see that the EDR3RXD1 is the replacement for the 9083 (in your pic)
