K5930D0 fridge-freezer is dispensing water containing black

K5930D0 fridge-freezer is dispensing water containing black (fungus?)material. New filter han't stopped this. What to do next?

Hi good morning,

I would have a technician come out to fix this one because this is an unhealthy situation and there is now a line blockage and that is bacteria that you dont want to drink.

He will need to remove the water filter receptical and blow the lines out with compressed air to clear the blockage then he will use a special solution to clean the lines thoroughly so the mold is gone.

Its a fairly big job to do this as the solenoids(electrically operated valves) also need to be removed and cleaned.

If you feel up to this task I will help you do this all.

Please let me know on that?

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
