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.

Whirlpool GD25SFCHS10 is my fridge model number. I tried to operate it after removing the filter and it leaked. This leakage was constant so I had to put the old filter back. I just installed a whole-house water system and a drinking water purifier that was hooked up to the fridge. It would be useless to continue running the water through the fridge filter as it is making the treated drinking water less desirable and healthy to consume. Is it possible I have a part that need to be replaced? Or, does this model require the filter so it doesn't leak?
