Hi - I seem to be having the exact same problem, but with the KFIS27CXMS2 model.
This seems to provide the answer (or at least a great starting point to fixing it), but the ceiling of this model is different that the one you provided in pictures so I`m not certain ho to access the area where the water filter and housing is located.
Do you have information about how to take the "ceiling" of the fridge off for this model?
I have the same water leaking problem and have found it to be one of the connections is spraying that is attached to the water filter housing. I have ordered a new water filter housing but was curious if you had simple instructions like posted earlier to install this piece. Thanks
so we found the problem to be a crack in one of the hoses into the water filter housing. We replaced the entire water holding tank W11168758 things and everything was good... so we thought. Now it’s leaking out of where you dispense water. Any ideas?
That sounds like it's probably air in the lines or reservoir. The entire water system holds less than a gallon of water so about 6-8 glasses through the dispenser should do it. As you're filling the glasses watch the dripping to see if it slows.
Sorry, I didn't see your last post. If the drip is continuous, even if there is a long pause between drips, I would suspect the water valve allowing a small amount of water to get past the diaphragm. If the drip completely stops after a few minutes It's probably dissolve gasses coming out of solution. It's usually not a problem unless the water lines under the machine are resting on the hot/warm condensor coils.
Hi all, been reading up on this thread for a few weeks now and finally got to investigating the problem.
I re-seated this connection, started dispensing water and it popped out like this again. @rickgburton In your opinion, is it hose and coupling i need to fix, meaning the hose and black connector, or the filter housing unit?
the other side is not leaking. this side is gushing.
[EDIT] After watching a video, I see that the black coupler looking piece in my photo is part of the filter housing unit, and that I cannot replace just a section of that hose where it is leaking.
That its the entire piece you posted earlier: Reservoir W11168758that needs to be replaced.
Would that be an accurate assumption?
