Many refrigerators, mount the water reservoir / tank in the refrigerator section behind the crisper's. The tubing from the tank, exits the bottom of the refrigerator section, into the condenser coil area, which is warm, then over to the bottom of door where it runs up and connects to the dispenser nozzle. The water just sitting in the tubing also gets warm. Lowering the temperature in the refrigerator could help you receive cold water. The condenser coils can get hot and cause the refrigerator to stop cooling if they haven't been cleaned in a while. This could be what is causing the water to come out hot.

If you have purged water from the dispenser after replacing the filter, the water reservoir will take approximately 4 hours to get cold. If you continue to dispense the water in large amounts, it will continue to run through the reservoir and not get cold as it should. The filter has nothing to do with the water temperature coming out of the dispenser.

To clean the rest of the coil, the best method will be, from the back of the unit. First disconnect power to the unit and then pull it out far enough, to get behind it. Now remove the back panel cover and you will see the compressor and the condenser coil behind it. You can use a vacuum cleaner with a small attachment on the condenser or if the vacuum cleaner will reverse, you can blow the coil out. If you blow it out, be prepared for some dust that will come out. Now you can replace the cover panel and reconnect power the unit.

If lowering the refrigerator temperature and cleaning the coils doesn't help, I strongly recommend having a technician properly diagnose this issue with your refrigerator. I hope this helps.
