I recently installed a Whirlpool, model WHKF-DWHBB, water filter unit in my home and I still have rusty water. I live in a home with a well and have a Kenmore, Ultrasoft 180, water conditioner. I have these units plumed from the pressure tank into the conditioner and then into the filter. Should I reverse the position of the filter and the conditioner?
Have you heard of the Merus ring ? It has been installed on a 26,000 sq ft office building in fresno which had a very severe rusty water problem.and in a very short period of time solved the owners problem at a reasonable cost see www.merusca,com for more info. Rick W

According to the information you gave, you have no factory installed filter in this unit. However, in this case, most people would have installed a water filter in the water line itself to the unit. Although it is possible to filter the water for this unit, Whirlpool did not sell this model with a internal filter. I hope this helped.
although this unit not equipt from factory with water filter,an add on can easily by installed. many different "in-line "water filter options are available, depending on installation, a filter can go either behind the refrigerator, or just passsed the initial water supply connection
I think this can also be due to rusty pipes or connections as it is seen to clear off after the initials flow. You can connect an online filter unless the water is confirmed to be hard and needs to be softenend..
I understand that you can not locate the water filter for your unit. If you have a water filter in your unit it will be located in one of two locations at the bottom of the unit in the grille or in the top of the refrigerator section on the right side in the rear corner. If the filter is not located at one of these locations then there is no filter on your unit. You will need to put an in-line filter in your water supply line.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
You have actually posted on the washing machine forum!
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser 'whirlpool whole house water filter' and, with a bit of luck,you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct. You may find, however, that it will supply only to service engineers but good luck anyway.
Please score this solution accordingly- thanks!
If you are getting a reddish-orange color then you have a high iron content in your water supply. The best way is to istall a dual fiter for rust and sediment removal on main water supply then install a water softener.
If you are not concerned with the hardness of your water you can just use the filters to remove the majority of the rusty color by changing the filters often. Thank you
The base grille water filter cartridge is located below the freezer
compartment door. Depending on your model, you may have a
filter that is installed behind the base grille or a filter that
is installed through the base grille
Get a charcoal filter from home depot (about 50.00) and install behind refrig or in cabinet . Filter has replaceable cartridges like for charcoal , lime , calcium . Installs in supply line to refridg . Do not recommend the 11.00 filter installed in line , where you replace the whole filter . Get the replaceable cartridge type .
Your refrigerator will not accept nor was designed to use a whirlpool water filter. No a filter is not required. Yes an in line filter can be installed prior to the connection at the inlet valve if you desire.
You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.
How old is the fridge? When have you last changed the water filter. Should be down below at the front grille! Try these tasks!
If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open. • Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce water flow. Straighten the water source line. • Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch (depending on model) is in the ON position. • New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice production. • Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely." • Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice. • Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm? Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil. • Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it correctly. • Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.
