Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now.ANSWER:These pieces that you are seeing, is bacteria in the water. This is not from the filter, it's from what the filter removes. Most all filters now, will remove the chlorine from the water. Without chlorine, there is nothing in the water, to fight bacteria from building up. To get rid of these pieces, I recommend replacing the water reservoir. It's possible the water tube in the door may also need to be replaced but usually replacing the reservoir will solve this type of problem. The only way I receive any credit at all for my time is by you selecting a STAR USING THE 5 STAR or VOTING RATING SYSTEM AT THE TOP OF YOUR PAGE before you leave for me so please make sure you are rating me not another tech. If you are not happy with the service please let me know before leaving a negative rating. This will also allow you to get directly back to me for FREE follow up questions and tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks GURU

You need to remove the crisper drawers and it is behind them and will unplug and come out.
