1. Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.
2. Pull the filter straight out.
3. Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove it from the filter.
IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your
refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.
4. Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.
NOTE: You can run the dispenser without a filter. Your water
will not be filtered. Simply insert the cap all of the way into the
base grille and rotate the cap until it is firmly in place.
5. Remove the protective covers from the O-rings. Be sure the
O-rings are still in place after the covers are removed.
6. Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop
back out when the filter is fully engaged.
7. Flush the water system. See “Water and Ice Dispensers.”
gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh
cleaning tools.

I have a GD22DQ model side by side whirlpool gold refrigerator. we have looked through the manual and we cannot find were to put the water filter. the manual shows a dial at the bottom of the fridge but...


Hello Dollar1392,

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.


Thank you for choosing FixYa.com if you have any further questions please post back to the thread.

Filter for UltraEase water filtration system?


This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning water lines etc., it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

Where the water filter whirlpool gold model no GS6SHEXMQ00 located? the last home owner lost the manual.


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

This should be the right manual

Water Dispensor leak on Whirlpool Refridgerator


The solenoid valve needs replacing, located at the back of the refrigerator. If you have well water you will need to install a filter on the supply line.
