SOURCE: Water filter stuck on my Kenmore Fridge

I had the same problem. I coudn't get the knob to turn. I ended up taking the front grill off so I could get a better grip on the knob. Once I did that I still have to put a lot of pressure on the knob to turn it but that did the trick. When I got it turned a quarter turn then it was easy to pull the filter out. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I need to change the water filter on my refrigerator

Since I didn't have the service manual, I had to play around until I stumbled into a way to remove the filter. To remove the filter: 1. locate the filter (bottom front under the refrigerator door). 2. push the button next to the filter cap until the filter is released. 3 remove the fillter and take that filter to the local home supply store to make sure you have the correct match. 4. replace cap on new filter, remove inlet protecting caps on new filter, and push the filter into place.

How do I remove a refrigerator water filter bypass cap?


It should twist about a quarter-turn counterclockwise - like from the 3:00 position to the 12:00 position - then pull straight out. It fits the housing exactly the same way as the filter fits it.

How do i change the filter in the amana my ice taste bab do i need to cut the water supply off to change the filter


Water filter is located in the upper right hand corner of the fresh food side.

Follow these steps:
  • These eight inch long filters are housed in their own compartment. The base of the compartment can be released by pushing in on the release clip found at the end of the housing unit. Allow the base of the housing compartment to hang down while you remove and replace your filter.


  • Twist the spent filter to the left (counter-clockwise) and gently pull on it to remove it. There is an automatic water shut off to keep leaks and spills to a minimum.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove the plastic wrap, and peel off the aluminum topping. Insert the new filter into the housing unit. Twist the filter to the right (clockwise) until it clicks into place. Replace the base of the filter housing by cliping it back in place.


  • Condition the filter by dispensing several glasses of water through your refrigerator. This ensures that all fine carbon particles have been removed.


  • Check the filter and the inside of the refrigerator for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and install the filter again.

I can't remove the old filter to replace it. You're supposed to push the button in and it would pop out, but it won't go in. 56166501 is model.


If its been some time since you last changed the filter then you may need to pull the filter holder while holding the eject button. Don't twist the cap on the holder, just pull.

If you can't get a grip on it and the eject button still doesn't work then remove the base grille by openeing both doors and pushing the top and pulling the bottom to give you better access to the eject button and filter holder.

The place where the water filter goes in won't open so I can't replace the water filter. It will not turn the 1/4 turn to the left as per the instructions. It seems stuck.


Hi there

These caps can be very stubborn to remove, the 'o' ring seal can almost lock it into place.

There are 2 things you can try

Switch off and unplug the fridge

Switch off the water supply and open the dispense valve

1. Use a hair drier to warm the cap, be careful as this can get very hot, you may choose to use gloves if it seems very hot, be careful not to overheat as this can distort the cap.Then twist anticlockwise and pull to remove the filter cap.

2. Put a shallow tray on the floor below the filter and cap, carefully and slowly pour hot (not boiling) water over the can then ,wearing gloves, twist anticlockwise then pull to remove the cap.

You may need to persevere if the filter has not been changed before.

Having changed the filter then plug in the unit and switch on the power and water and draw off water from the dispense valve in 5 second burst for about 2 mins to remove air from the filter and ensure that clean water is right through the fridge

Hope this helps

Water filter won't come out when I push the button


Push button? It should be a turn to the left to remove if it is a whirpool located at the bottom. These are twist out not push to release. The only push to releases are made by electrolux.
