WHIRLPOOL SIDE BY SIDE 20RUD3J 20.0CF - Filter light flashing

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.

Thank you.

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.

How to change water filter?


Hi

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.
Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I have a refrigerator of Whirpool type 20RU-Dsybol and the symbol of the antibactreial filter (green) flashing what does this mean


Hi!!
The filter status light will help you know when to change your water filter. The light will flash and change from green to yellow. This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. It is recommended that you replace the filter when the status light changes to red OR water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably. After changing the filter, reset the filter status light by pressing the button. The status light will change from red to green when the system is reset.
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 protective 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.
Good Luck!!
