It could be at the lower left hand side front. remove the front grill and look at the lower left hand side. if you see a round thing there, then that is the water filter.

if not then it could be inside the refrigerator room, upper shelve at the back , you can see a round plastic about 5 inches long. cylindrical in shape. that would be your water filter.

tnx 4 using fixya,

    hi fredlandDick,



    i'm sorry i did not get the question right but ratings are as important to us as answering your questions, so can i ask for a favor please?



    can you change the rating so as not to degrade my rating so much because of the Inappropriate rate?



    i hope you will be kind enough to reconsider your rate and hopefully you have removed your filter by this time.



    tnx again,

The red warning light has to be reset manually - by pressing the Ice Type and Child Lock buttons together for 5 seconds. As for the taste, check the flow direction is correct on the filter and run a few litres of water off.

SOURCE: how to reset a maytag plus fridge

I have a Maytag Plus Refrigerator and the way to rest the water filter light is to simultaneosly hold down the "Light" and "Lock" pads until the "Change Filter" light blinks (approximately 3 seconds). This will reset the Change filter light for 12 months or for the number of gallon threshold for your filter.

SOURCE: Samsung RSH1DTMH fridge freezer water filter replacement

The water pipe connection to the filter is a one way fitting which means that the more one pulls to free the pipe, the more the filter connection grips it. There is a circlip on each end of the filter - push the circlip firmly in towards the filter while pulling the pipe free, it should come free easily. Needs 3 hands, two to depress the circlip and one to pull the pipe free. Preferably put a container under the filter (there can be a bit of spillage) while you're replacing it and remember to test the connections once you've fitted the new filter before pushing the fridge back into place.

Samsung's instructions should be clearer.

I put a new filter in my Sansung Refrigerator and the water taste worse than the old one, why?


I agree with Gramps... the system needs to be flushed, but one question... why did you change the filter in the 1st place... was it cause you had a smell or taste in the water AND ice, or the filter light came on?? I would remove water line going to ref from house plumbing... run water in bucket for 2 min, then take a small taste to see if good..If water taste good, then hook water line back up to ref, and run water at the door for about 1/2 gal, then taste and smell water to see if it passes... If still have problem, you are going to have to replace filter head and/or water reservoir.... But before i did that i would contact Samsung to get their take, depending on age they might send parts at no charge to you the consumer....... Ken Hawk

I have a Whirlpool fridge that needs a new water filter. Twice now, when I remove the filter to change it, water gushes out even though the ice maker is OFF. I quickly turn off the water line and mop


The Whirlpool fridge requires a water supply connection to a cold water line. Before you connect the water supply to the water line on the fridge, make certain the unit is unplugged from the wall. Press the button and drop down the cover. Then twist to release the old filter and twist the new one into the filter head. Run about 2 gallons of water through dispenser to remove any air from the lines. Liquid EPDM Rubber Roof Coatings for Roof Leaks Repair EPDMCoatings

Water and ice taste bad


How long has it been since you replaced the filter in the waterline, or in the refrigerator section waterline? This filter is to be replaced usually every six months. This filter is usually a canister about the size of a car oil filter and is usually located in the upper right side of the fridge. May be hidden by a plastic shield over the light. Replacing this filter should eliminate your problem. Remember to read the instructions that come with the new filter as to filling it with water before installing or not and the purge time or amount before using it for drinking, to flush any particulate out of the new filter. Usually 60 seconds of running water from door in to a glass and dumping that water...or run water into a glass til it dispenses clear water. Remember to turn off the water to the fridge and have a towel handy when replacing the filter. Some refrigerators have a function where by when you unscrew the old filter it automatically shuts off the water, but I would not trust that to actually work...Ha!

Water filter question


WOW! I'd say that the filter is definately due for replacement.

The manufacturer recommends the filter be changed every 6-8 months, as with ice and water dispensers in the door, folks tend to use the chilled water and ice more often, hence you get alot of gallons of water thru the fridge each month.

Once you replace the filter, you'll need to flush out the lines, (see the instructions with the new filter) to get rid of any loose carbon in the filter element, but once you done this, you should also notice better water flow and better tasting water and ice cubes too.

I tend to change my ice/water filter on my fridge every year when I change my smoke detector batteries. That way, I don't forget, sort of like my personal "once-a-year" house task list to change batteries, filters, resetting timers, etc., etc.

It's a good idea to change these smaller filters at a minimum of once a year, as they are no longer providing the filtration you want, and can actually be letting some of the contaminents fow out and into your water and cubes.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I have a GE side by side stainless steel refrig. the water will not dispense. How can I fix it?


Is there water to the water valve in the rear of the fridge? If yes, replace the water filter if older than 6 months or if you're on a well. You may need an inline water filter behind your fridge in addition to the one in the fridge to protect the water valve. If no, turn on the water. If you're making ice but no water dispense and you have a new water filter. Replace the water valve.

New water filter replaced follower instructions in book Orang lig


There is no sensor that knows you replaced it. Probably have to hold down a button or two to reset light on dispenser area; read your manual for directions or find it on-line from the mfr website if you don't have it. I do not know what key sequence.

Using without water filter


The effort it would take to eliminate filter would be too much. Just leave filter in place. If new house filter is working right you should never have to replace fridge filter and your water will be double-filtered :)
