Re: Water Filter

Look up to the upper right corner of the frige section and you will see a long white tube with a small latch on the end. Looks smaller than a Pringles can in diameter. Pop the latch down and the cover will lower. Hold the back as much you can and twist the filter about 1/4 turn counter clockwise and it should pop out. Once you install the new filter run a couple of "KoolAid" sized pitchers of water through the door to get all the air out of the line.

I have an Amana side by side refrigerator model ASD2522WRB06. I replaced the filter that is located in the grill at the bottom of the fridge. Now water does not flow at all.

It should work with the filter removed because of a automatic bypass built into Amana refrigerators but sometimes even new filters or copy cat filters will not work at all because they have a defective area where they connect to your water system.

Where is the water filter on the amana #scd25tw

The Amana with model number SCD25TW does not have a water filter. You would have to install an in-line filter on the water supply line if you want to filter the water. If your talking about the model number ARS266ZBS, then open the refrigerator door and look at the top right hand side. You should see a filter housing with a tab to release. Once released you have to remove the filter from the housing to replace it. When finished be sure to run about a gallon through the dispenser, to flush any air out of the system.

Trying to reset filer light after changing filter-locked up

Here is a link to the manual for your unit. Copy paste into your browser.

Page 20 shows how to unlock the dispenser and reset the filter light and I have pasted them here.

There are products at Lowes or Home Depot near the appliance for odor removal, I like to put a bowl of cotton balls on a couple of shelves, soak the cotton in vanilla once a day. The odors will be gone in a couple of days.

This feature prevents ice or water from
being dispensed.
To lock dispenser:
➢ Press and hold DISPENSER LOCK
button for 3 seconds. A green
indicator light above button confirms
dispenser is locked.
To unlock dispenser:
➢ Hold DISPENSER LOCK button for 3
seconds. Green indicator light above
button will go out.

Filter reset

The filter status indicator light
serves as a reminder to replace the
water filter. A green light indicates that
the filter is in good condition. A red light
indicates the filter should be changed.
Once light turns red, it will remain red
until function is reset.
To reset indicator:
➢ Press and hold both DISPENSER
LOCK and WATER buttons
simultaneously for 4 seconds. The
green filter status indicator light will
flash 3 times when the function has
successfully reset.

Filter change

didnt post the model number, but a general rule of thumb is the filter is in top right section of refrig compartment, a counter-clockwise turn will unscrew and rescrew the new one in

Amana fridge water filter squealing

I would suggest that you put the new water filter back in and try dispensing water for about ten minutes. If there is still a high pitched noise then you could try bleeding the water line at different points along the water circuit (with control over the incoming supply). The fact that you are forcing water through the tank should normally resolve any air locks. The water filter could also be bled of air. Hope this is of some help.
