Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
The filter reset button on the dispenser front panel does not reset, to show how much filter capacity is remaining after the filter has been changed. It is staying on 0% left in filter when there should be a reading of 100% remaining after the filter has been changed and the reset button has been held down for three seconds. Do I need to replace the front cover housing which has the filter touch button on it ?

If you will look on the bottom of the dispenser cover you will see 2 notches on the left and right side. carefully pry the cover off using a flat tip screw driver. then you will see a white switch plate that is either held on with latches or 2 srews depending on model. once this is removed you will gain access to the dispenser door.
once you gain access I think you will find the hinges for the dispenser door are broken off. if so you will need a dispenser door repair kit form whirlpool part # 8201756 this kit includes new door and hinge repair kit. this is something you can do yourself if you are pateint and pay lose attention to detail. otherwise I would recomend a god servie company. thanks for using FixYa Peyton

have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the
water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser
water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the
dispenser. If it's slow here there is a valve our water supply problem. If it's
normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's
normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door
till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the

the front dispensor panel can be removed by lookin under the panel you see too little spaces in which ti insert a screw driver,by pushing down on the top, you cantwist the screwdriver in the opening eleasing the tabs, and simply lifting off the top tabs, dependingon model you may need to un plug a wire or 2.. the tubing should be able to be removed be releasing the connector undeer the door and simply refeeding the new hose back into unit

SOURCE: water leaking at filter
If this is a Pure source 2 filter in the upper right hand side of fridge, Purchase an Electrolux filter bypass, P/N 241944302. This is a empty cartridge that lets water flow without water drip when filter is clogged. Fridgidaire/Electrolux made no bypass in these filters, so when clogged they leak. Plus they NEVER last more than about 30/60 days. If you use the bypass, you will need a separate filter elsewhere such as in water line under sink or behind fridge. Call me at 816-560-8545 if you need more info.

Tips for a great answer:
Water Filter Status Light (on some models)
The water filter status light will help you know when to change
your water filter. When the water filter status display changes from
"GOOD" to "ORDER," this tells you that it is almost time to
change the water filter cartridge. Replace the water filter cartridge
when the water filter status display changes to "REPLACE." If
water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases
noticeably, change the filter sooner. The filter should be replaced
at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and
After changing the water filter, reset the status light by pressing
and holding the FILTER button for 3 seconds. The status light will
change from "REPLACE" to "GOOD" when the system is reset.
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 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.
7. Flush the water system. See "Water and Ice Dispensers."
Water Filter Status Light:
The water filter status light will help you know when to change your water filter.
When the dispenser control panel's water filter status display changes to "ORDER," this tells
you that it is almost time to change the water filter cartridge.
Replace the water filter cartridge when the water filter status display changes to "REPLACE."
The filter should be replaced at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and usage.
NOTE: If water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably, change the
filter sooner. After changing the water filter, reset the status light.
Pressing and holding RESET FILTER starts the 3 seconds countdown. Using the dispenser
cancels the countdown AND no dispensing is permitted. The number '3' blinks 3 times and the
'invalid' tone sounds 3 times and user has to release both the pad and the button and press
the button again to start it over
After 3 seconds, the BLUE WATER BARS in the Icon flash and an audible tone sounds 3
times. When the system is reset, the "ORDER" and "REPLACE" icons will disappear from the
display screen. See figure 16.
Note: Users can reset the filter status at any stage.
