Looking for water filter to be replaced. The red light is on and I can't find filter.

On a Whirlpool you can check the bottom front black vent piece, filter cover looks like a half-moon shaped cover. Its under the freezer side. There is a thumb-sized black push button next to it which will 'eject' the filter. Push on the black button and the filter pops out

How do you change the water filter?

Which Whirlpool model do you have?

I know the ED5KVEXVQ has the filter in the grille nearly centered on the freezer (left) side of the unit. This is the P2RFWG2 or 4396841 filter. Push the button until the filter pops out. Take the cap of the end of the filter (the side that was even with the grille) by twisting counter-clockwise. Take the new filter out of the box and put the cap on the appropriate end (twist clockwise). Take off the red caps from the other end. Insert the filter into the opening with the cap to the outside and press firmly until it clicks into place.

The other common Whirlpool refrigerator filter is the 4396710. This installs the same way except it doesn't ship with a cap that you need to remove on the one end.

I hope this helps.

How do you get the water filter out of refrigerator so you can replace it

Without knowing your particular model number, I checked and most 25 cu.ft. side by sides have the water filter in the grille. You just push a release button and it pops out. There is a cap on the filter, do not through it away as you will need it on a new filter. Also ensure the O-ring protective covers are removed on the new filter prior to installing. You can run the water dispenser without a filter as well. Here is a link to the PDF for one type of 25 cu. ft. Whirlpool side by side.

Water filter won't come out when I push the button

Push button? It should be a turn to the left to remove if it is a whirpool located at the bottom. These are twist out not push to release. The only push to releases are made by electrolux.
