Samsung RSH1DTMH fridge freezer water filter replacement

I cannot get the inlet water pipe free from the old water filter without exerting what seems to be excessive force? Why is the water pipe so hard to detach?

    Hey Clive,
    Are you removing the pipe from a water filter?

    With out looking i guess
    If they are rubber hoses heat is up a little.
    if it is a traditional filter you should be able to remove the filter from the bottom and not have to remove the pipes at all.

    Could you explain in more detail the filter?

The water pipe connection to the filter is a one way fitting which means that the more one pulls to free the pipe, the more the filter connection grips it. There is a circlip on each end of the filter - push the circlip firmly in towards the filter while pulling the pipe free, it should come free easily. Needs 3 hands, two to depress the circlip and one to pull the pipe free. Preferably put a container under the filter (there can be a bit of spillage) while you're replacing it and remember to test the connections once you've fitted the new filter before pushing the fridge back into place.

Samsung's instructions should be clearer.

Freezer not making ice


Is it an icemaker? Either the water valve is bad or the freezer isn't cold enough or the ice maker is bad. Is it just a ice cube tray? Then it's not cold enough.

I have a samsung fridge freezer model no RSH1DTMH and the fridge will not go lower than 13degrees and the freezer and water dispenser seem ok. The fridge freezer is only 3 years old. Any ideas/


We had the same fault on our Samsung American style RSH1DBRS fridge freezer as lots of other people seem to be having. After doing lots of research, we found the best solution seemed to be to buy a repair kit from Appliance DIY Repairs. The instructions were fantastic and the installation was a doddle. Excellent service & well priced.

I have a Samsung rsh1dbbp fridge/freezer, the change filter light has come up, but the instructions are not clear I do not know where to install the new filter, could someone help me?


The filter is located behind the fridge. This is a self contained filter cartridge that is replaced as a unit. Online they sell for about £4. Pull the fridge out completely and you will probably see the filter cartridge clipped to the wall. The filter is about 10 inches long and about 2 inch diameter. Note the flow direction marked on the new cartridge, and remember to turn off the water supply before disconnecting to inlet and outlet pipes from the filter . Hope this helps

Do I need to install water filter? Is it critical?


The water filter is your call. This can remove sediment and some odors. If you have good water where you live, it should not be a big deal. The only thing is that it is a hassle to get behind the fridge to replace the filter. I have seen man people install their fridge without a filter and be very happy with the performance of the system. Not Critical, but some would say it is.

I hope that I have provided the correct information that will assist you in the resolution of this issue. If you have any questions, please post back with a comment to this thread.
