Where is the filter for the ice maker on whirlpool refer model number ED2CHOXK005


Removing and replacing a water filter - base grill location

Filters situated in the base grill (below the freezer compartment) of Whirlpool-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these two steps:
  1. Grasp the filter's end and make a one-quarter turn to the left.
  2. Pull the filter straight out.
To replace with a new filter, repeat these two steps in the opposite order, making sure to first remove the red cap from the filter. Proceed by pushing the filter straight into the slot, and then giving it a one quarter turn to the right.
Note: Replacing this type of filter is quick - there is no need to unplug your refrigerator when replacing it. Also, this filter should be replaced every six months.

How to change the water filter on my Kitchenaid Superba fridge?


The details are on page 6 of this manual or I have pasted them below.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%202306982.pdf

Changing the Water Filter
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.
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.”

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

Kenmore Fridge - Bad Testing Water


Your refrigerator definitely has a water filter. If you have gone 5 years without replacing the filter, you and your family have probably been drinking contaminated water, for some time. Water filters should be replaced every three to six months. On some refrigerators, and in cases of higher water consumption, the filter must be changed every 60 days. Sears sells replacement filter cartridges for Kenmore refrigerators.

The water filter on your refrigerator is located at the front base of the unit, in the grille, below the freezer door. There, you will see a round cap. Turn the cap counter-clockwise, until the handle is vertical.Then, pull it out of the grille. The filter cartridge is attached to the cap. After removing the cap and filter, slide the cap off from the existing filter cartridge. Slide the cap on to a new cartridge, and re-insert with the cap handle in a vertical position. Push it in, firmly. Then, turn the cap clockwise, until the cap handle is horizontal.
