Can I operate a Kenmore side by side refrigerator with the water filter removed?

I am trying to determine whether there will be any problem in the operation of a Whirlpool made Kenmore side by side refrigerator, with the water filter in the base grill, if I take the filter completely out. I already have a whole house water filtration system, and I don't want to use the refrigerator filter and have the semi-annual expense of replacing it.

Hi Sailor9,My name is Debbie in regards to your question yes when you remove the filter you may have some spillage but thats normal no it will not leak having a whole house filteration system is great the refrigerator will not need doulble filteration so it would be fine to run it without one as for the ice and water you still have water coming into the unit so the answer is yes you still will have ice and water.enjoy:)
