Question about KitchenAid (KSRD22FKST) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Filter light on refregerator

Filter 4396508. Our light to change filter comes on more frequently than normal. Only 2 using refrig, and not very much water used.
My question is: Does the light come on based on some sort of timer, or does it come on based on restriction.----- in other words clogged up and no longer is able to filter?
If by restriction, can I install an inline filter on the water supply line to essentially pre-filter the water for a longer life of the expensive 4396508? We are retired and $80+ dollars a year for filters is a little rough on us.

Thanks, Allan

You don't need the filter if you have city water or if you you prefilter or have pretreated water. Take it out and the fridge will operate normally. I took mine out last year based on advise from a tech and no problems since (actually works better and makes better ice)

Are you sure that your water line is hooked to cold water. It sounds like you are hooked up to hot water and not cold.

I have a ED2FHEXN Whirpool Refrigerator. Where is

Your fridge was made with 2 different types. it will be either one or the other.

the first one could be:WF-NL240 part number :#4396508 use replacement NL240
should run about $32.99

the second one could be:WF-L400 part number:#4396508 use replacement L400
this as well should run about $32.99

I would highly recommend that you contact whirlpool to find out which filter you will need since they used 2 different ones on your model.

You can reach them by phone or e-mail.

I hope this helps you. IF you need further assistance please feel free to contact us at any time.

No flow after filter change.

G E waterfilters , can be bad when new (all , not just G E ). Put your old one back in , if water flow was fine , and you replaced just because the light came on . Or , use the plastic bypass piece , which came with the refrig , when new . The replace light , works off time and/or usage times only . If you have good water flow and the cubes are normal size , don't change the filter when the light comes on , just reset the light . All "filter" companies , have found the way to sell more filters , the light on dispensors .

I have a friend with a Whirlpool ED5PHAXMB00. It's producing ice, and dispensing ice, but no water will dispense. She changes the filter evey time the light comes on, so am thinking it's not that. Have...

Some refrig's , water goes to filter first , some thru water valve first and then the filter . On this model , it goes to the water valve first , then the filter .
1) never change the filter just because the light says to . Only replace when icecubes get small or when water flow from dispensor slows . A filter can last 6 mths- 1yr. and sometimes longer .
2) the resevoir is in the refrig section , behind the lower crispers
3) the water valve is probably the problem

It looks like it is in a grille area near the floor.  There is a picture at:

If you call them they should be able to tell you where to look.
