Just as a chance make sure there's nothing missing on the old filter by comparing the two "heads". I could be possible that a small piece broke off the old filter and is stuck inside the holder. Other than that don't push too much, concentrate on the turning vice pushing and turning. It should be hard to turn but not impossible, pliers can also be used to have more leverage to compress the o-rings.

How do I change water filter


Hello Anita;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number, so I am going to have to tell you where the water filter might be.

1.) On the lower, front bottom grill or toe plate, in the center there is a round hole. In this hole is your water filter. Grab the end of the cylinder and turn 1/4 turn counter clock wise and pull out. There will be some water in the filter. Slide the end cap off the old filter and slide it back on the new filter. Insert the new filter, push in and turn 1/4 turn clockwise.

2.) In the upper back right hand corner of your refrigerator section is where your water filter is located. There is a plastic cover plate around it, but you can still see the bottom of the filter canister. Reach in and turn the bottom of the filter 1/4 turn counter clockwise and remove. Insert the new water filter and turn 1/4 turn clockwise.

After installing a new filter, there is air in the filter. Run your water dispenser until a steady flow of water come out. You will get air & water spurting out.

If you only have a ice maker, you will have to manually cycle your ice maker until it fills.

The water filter change light is not tied into anything in your unit. It is like a egg timer. Even when the indicator light indicates to change you water filter, you only change your water filter when either the water coming out of the water dispenser is slow or you are getting small ice cubes.

How do I change the water filter


Removing and replacing a water filter - upper right hand corner location

Filters situated in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator compartment of Maytag-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  • These eight inch long filters are housed in their own compartment. The base of the compartment can be released by pushing in on the release clip found at the end of the housing unit. Allow the base of the housing compartment to hang down while you remove and replace your filter.


  • Twist the spent filter to the left (counter-clockwise) and gently pull on it to remove it. There is an automatic water shut off to keep leaks and spills to a minimum.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove the plastic wrap, and peel off the aluminum topping. Insert the new filter into the housing unit. Twist the filter to the right (clockwise) until it clicks into place. Replace the base of the filter housing by cliping it back in place.


  • Condition the filter by dispensing several glasses of water through your refrigerator. This ensures that all fine carbon particles have been removed.


  • Check the filter and the inside of the refrigerator for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and install the filter again.


  • Finally, reset the 'change filter' indicator light, if your refrigerator has one, at the front of your refrigerator. The procedure for resetting the change filter indicator light can vary from fridge to fridge. Typically, the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.


Removing and replacing a water filter - center ceiling location

Filters situated in the center ceiling of the refrigerator compartment of Maytag-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  • Turn the filter a quarter turn to the left, in a counter-clockwise motion. The 'unlocked' symbol on the filter will be lined up with the indicator line that is molded into the refrigerator just above the filter. Allow the ears of the cartridge to disengage from the filter holder.


  • Gently pull down on the filter, being careful to not spill any water still in the filter. Discard the used filter.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove and discard the red plastic cap found on the top of the new filter.


  • Apply the appropriate month sticker to the filter to remind your self to remove and replace the filter in six months' time.


  • Insert the new filter into the filter opening. Line the 'unlock' symbol on the filter up with the indicator line that is molded into the refrigerator above the filter. Turn the filter a quarter turn to the right, in a clockwise motion. You will be able to feel the filter stop when it is all the way in, and the 'locked' symbol on the filter will now be lined up with the indicator line above the filter.


  • Close the refrigerator door and dispense several glasses of water through the water dispenser in the door in order to purge the new filter of any impurities. Open the refrigerator door again and check for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and replace the new filter again.


  • Finally, reset the 'change filter' indicator light, if your refrigerator has one, at the front of your refrigerator. The procedure for resetting the change filter indicator light can vary from fridge to fridge. Typically, the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.

How do I change the water filter for ASD2522WRS


Your water filter is located underneath the freezer door, in the toe plate grille. you will see a knob, turn it counter clockwise one quarter turn. Sometimes its easier if you remove the toe plate grill first. Remove the filter from the housing, then remove the knob from the filter, place the knob on the new filter, remove the red cap on the other end, and with the "handle" of the knob pointing up and down, insert the filter, and twist it clockwise one quarter turn. Replace the toe grill if you removed it

How do u replace water filter on samsung refrigerator side by side model number rs2630sh


The water filter in the extra space behind the vegetable Bin.

1) As shown, the fixed cap separates from the refrigerator by rotating
it counterclockwise.
Remove the water filter from the box and put a month indicator
sticker on the filter as shown on the next page.
2) The water filter should be replaced every six months, so if the filter
was installed in March (for example), put on the "SEP" sticker
to remind you to change the filter.
3) Remove the protective cap, then position and insert the
filter as shown.
4) Slowly turn the water filter clockwise 90º to align
the indication mark on the cover, locking the filter in position.

Or go here bottom of page 24 top of 25.

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.
