Can the water filter cause the dispenser and ice maker to stop working?

by christinaleew Last activity date:
February 27th, 2009

My Kenmore 596.75529400 Refrig water/ice maker has stopped working. They were both working fine. The water dispenser stopped giving water about a month ago and now the ice maker has stopped. Could it be the water purifier filter needs replacement. We have never changed it - many moons.

If the filter is completely stopped up it will stop the water flow. This will stop both the dispenser and ice maker. To determine if this is the problem there is a by-pass # 67003146 that can be installed. If you get water flow with the by-pass installed the filter # 9006 will be the problem. Both of these parts are available at

. If water still won't dispense with the by-pass installed, the water valve could be defective and this may also be a dual problem with both the ice maker and dispenser. A technician will need to make these checks. If you need more assistance you can resubmit your question with more details.
