Question about Whirlpool GC5SHEXNS Side by Side Refrigerator
The water filter light is flashing green. Do I wait until it turns red (does it turn re?) to change the filter. I have had the fridge freezer for over 6 months.
Once changed does the light go off automatically or do I have to reset anything? Cannot find manual. So hope somebody can help me.
if posible try turning off over night, if its ok when you start it back up after 24hours, defrost not happening, ice builds up air flow is restricted

yes it is. as long as there is still water coming out from the dispenser.
the red light only indicates that it is about time to replace the filter. could be 6 months old. this is controlled by time, so check your water pressure at the dispenser, if it is still strong, then you could still use it .
depending on your condition, some filters would be clogged already even if the light is still green and there is no more water coming out of your dispenser.
normal time to replace the filter is six months.

The reason you had water dripping from the top is the frig goes into a defrost cycle every 12 hours or so and melts the ice build up. Now your drain line for the water to go down to bottom of frig is plugged more then likely with ice. Take the cover off back of freezer and get some salt table salt be good. And put it in the drain hole located roughly in the center of freezer cabinet. That will take care of the drain quick. Now notice to see if the fan on the inside of freezer is on. My hunch is that it is not turning. You can replace the little fan motor make sure you don't damage the fan blades you will re-use them. Be sure compressor is on cause the fan only works when compressor is on. Let me know what you find out.

the filter is located in the front of the unit just below the freezer door whirlppol has 2 filter options one has a push button next to the round filter cartridge that whne pushed releases the filter. the other option is a twist out filter simply turn 1/4 tun counter cloclkwise and the filter will come right out.
after replacing filter run aprox 1/2 gal of water to clear air and remember to reset filter monitor according to your owners manual

Tips for a great answer:
Find the indication light, located at the top of the Whirlpool
refrigerator just inside the door. This tells you when to change your water
filter. A green light indicates the filter is good and a red light indicates
you need to change the filter.
Find the filter knob. It is usually located at the base of the
refrigerator in the kick plate or grill.
Turn the knob a quarter turn to the left to unlock the filter.
Pull out and remove the old filter.
Add a new filter and push in. Turn the filter a quarter turn to
the right to secure it in place.
Reset your filter indication light inside the refrigerator. Press
down and release the switch five times within 10 seconds. The filter indication
light should then turn green.
