When I remove the old filter to change it water spews all over the floor and I have to cut off the water supply to the frig to stem the flow of water. Sears claimed it was a filter issue but it occurs every time I change the filter. It appears the auto shut off feature that should engage when the filter is removed is inoperative. Does this necessitate replacing the filter housing?
ANSWER Hello Tammy,
The water filter housing W10121140 would have to be changed on the unit. The housing has a plunger that opens and closes with the filter assembly. When it sticks open it sprays water everywhere when you pull filter out.
