This is the indicator that suggests that it is time to change the water filter.

After 5 months of operation, the indicator shows as light pink. At this point, it is a reminder to aquire a replacement filter,

After 6 months of operation, the indicator turns to red. This is now the suggested time to change the indicator.

Even if you aren't using the water, the filter indicator still lights as this is simply a timer and does not measure water flow through the filter.

To reset the indicator, press and hold the Fridge and Power Cool buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. These 2 buttons are on the right side of the display panel. They are the first 2 buttons to the right of this indicator.

Printed on the panel, there is a line connecting the buttons with a miniature of the indicator in the middle. The instruction to hold the buttons for 3 seconds is printed below the buttons.

Because all Samsung refrigerators use a microprocessor to control them, the timing is precisely as given. Since people usually aren't that precise, you may find yourself holding the buttons for 4 or 5 'seconds' before the indicator changes.

Samsung has used a filter indicator like this since the first full-size Samsung refrigerator wa introduced in the United States in Fall 2002. Though the time has varied slightly between models and the 2-button combination has varied even more, the basic process applies to nearly every model that had an ice filter.

Wate Filter Light stays on after filter has been changed.



  • After changing your water filter you have to reset the light for it to go off as it does not reset right away.
  1. Just press and hold the "FIGHT" and "LOCK" buttons until the water filter light flashes. Now the light will be off.
  2. Don't forget to run a couple gallons of water through the new filter to remove any carbon out of the incoming water after installing a new water filter. This is not poisonous by any mean but it can leave a bitter taste in your mouth until the carbon wears off.


  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

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

I have a refrigerator of Whirpool type 20RU-Dsybol and the symbol of the antibactreial filter (green) flashing what does this mean


Hi!!
The filter status light will help you know when to change your water filter. The light will flash and change from green to yellow. This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. It is recommended that you replace the filter when the status light changes to red OR water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably. After changing the filter, reset the filter status light by pressing the button. The status light will change from red to green when the system is reset.
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.
Good Luck!!
A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.
