Is there a way of disconnecting the line and cleaning it out with a Q-tip?
I use a Flo Jet pump and a 5 gallon bottle of water to feed the water supply to my Whirlpool fridge. My question is do I have to have the fridge filter in place? The Flo Jet company said to remove the filter in order for the pump to work properly.
Is there a easy way to clean the water line out for the ice maker and water dispenser on a 1993 Kenmore side by side refrigerator, model 596.9?
I have a Maytag fridge, model# MZD2665HEQ. I want to flush the water lines to take the musty taste out of them so I can drink the water again. It just doesn't taste good.

I need to find out if there is any way to clean (instead of replace) the lines and water reservoir in my "Whirlpool" refrigerator icemaker/water unit. Someone suggested vinegar, but I would like to know if there is anything to force [under pressure] the vinegar (or other cleaner) through the line and reservoir to make sure they are clean.
Good luck. Susan (07/29/2003)
