you need to remove the toe kick panel grille below the front doors on the refrigerator behind this grille there is a connector and it can come loose,also possibly the water valve in the lower rear behind the back panel can leak,have a helper press the door paddle for water and check all these areas for leaks,if it leaks from the door stem where the water line goes up the door to the dispenser,then you will need to pull new hose up to the dispenser from the collar mentioned at first,some refrigerators can not have new hose installed due to the door has been foamed internally at the factory and cant be dis-assembled,then you would need a new door with the hose installed
I'm not sure I understand your question, so forgive me if I'm incorrect. I'm confused as to wether your whirlpool has an internal filter or if you have an external stand-alone unit.
I have a samsung refridgerator and the water filter is inside the fridge located at the back on the upper right. In fact, all Samsung RAF/AES models come with this internal filter. Depending on where you buy it, often times the delivery guys will set it up for free. They will simply disconnect your old fridge, remove it , reconnect the water hose to your new Samsung and be on their way.
If you choose to do it yourself, simply remove the old fridge, follow the hose to under your sink and remove the old one. Run the new house by attaching it to the appropriate place on your sink and over to the back of the fridge. Also, many modern homes have a cold water tap behind the fridge, so you might be able to connect it there if you do.
Either way, whether you have an external unit or inyernal hose
If the instructions are different than below,I will need you model number.

Once you get to the tank , there are 2 hoses . Cut the hoses to remove the tank . Do not push the water dispensor afterwards , or water will run into the fridge . The icemaker water is not connected to the tank , so removel (or non removal ) does not matter . If you had given the model number , I could have given you the part number for the tank (resevoir).
1) remove the tubing connector behind refrig kickplate . Press for water . If no water comes from tube under refrig , then possibly frozen tank but probably not . Probably bad water inlet valve . ( tank is in the lower potrion of the refrig section behind the crispers ) .
2) if water does shoot out , then your freezer door is frozen which requires leaving door open and tapeing light switch closed and tape plastic around freezer section opening so fridge will continue to operate normally . Thawing freezer door could take a day or 2 . 3) You can plug the hoses back togather and walk by occasionally pressing water untill comes out . Lower your freezer temperature setting also ( could be set for too cold)
Attach flexable rubber line from water bottle, like is used for race bicycle riders,or tape up a hose to a water bottle. Turn off valve at water pipe leadign to line to filter. Remove filter. place a pan to catch water under the machine. Attach A small diameter hose to water line where water exits to glass.With machine turned on and your rubber hose attached turn bottle upside down and squeeze while pressign glass lever. Flush through approximate one quare or until water stream is clear. Their is no pumb ofor flow the line preaure is al that moves the water so backflushing is easy.
