Follow this instruction and fix it. God bless you


  • Purge the system once the new filter is installed. Fill a large glass with water from the dispenser and empty the water into a sink. Continue filling and emptying the glass until the water runs without air burps and the water is clear.

  • 2
    Locate the "Lock" and "Light " button on the dispenser. Older Maytag refrigerators have a "Lock" and "Water" button.

  • 3
    Press the "Lock" and "Light button with your fingers and hold them in for four seconds.

How do I reset the water filter ?


You must reset the filter's timer/counter for the "Change Filter" indicator. This varies by brand and model, but involves pressing one (or more) buttons to reset the indicator. The owner's manual should provide this detail.

Filter light on


Water Filter Status Light and Filter Reset
The filter reset control allows you to restart the water filter status
tracking feature each time you replace the water filter. See "Water
Filtration System."
After changing the water filter, reset the status light. Press the
OPTIONS button to enter Options mode, then press LOCK to
initiate the reset, then press MEASURED FILL to confirm that
you want to reset the status light. When the system is reset,
the "Order" and "Replace" icons will disappear from the
display screen.
These instructions can be found in the=> GZ25FSRXYY2 User Manual . As for the dispenser and ice dispenser problem this could be related to a loose connection in the door where wiring attaches to control panel and/or where door wires go from door to cabinet also a defective pressure switch where glass is pressed to get water or ice. Can you tell me when this additional problem began?
I am here should you need me, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

Filter light will not turn off


Resetting your Refrigerator filter indicator light after changing your water filter

Some people are not aware that after you change your refrigerator water filter, there are two more steps that should be taken to complete the water filter change process.

Step 1:
Reset your water filter indicator light - Most new refrigerators come equiped with an indicator light that notifies you when it is time to change your water filter. This light does not automatically reset when you change your water filter. Here is a list of refrigerator manufacturers and how to reset the indicator light.

GE General Electric Refrigerators - Press and Hold the Reset Button for around 8 Seconds.

Step 2:
Flush a couple of gallons of water through your new filter. Since most refrigerator water filters are made of carbon, some carbon residue is present in the first gallon or two of water. This will leave a bitter taste and residue in your water. If you continue to have these problems after flushing a couple of gallons through the filter, it is possible that you have a defective water filter.

How do i reset the waterfilter light


WATER FILTER CHANGE REMINDER

(Select Models)

For some refrigerator models featuring

water filters, the Water Filter Change

Reminder function monitors the life of the

filter and provides a reminder when it is time

for the filter to be changed.

When the system detects either 12 months

of usage, or the filtering of 416 gallons of

water (whichever comes first), the CHANGE

FILTER indicator light will illuminate. This

indicates that the water filter should be

changed and the light reset.

To reset CHANGE FILTER light: Press and

hold the LIGHT and LOCK pads until the

CHANGE FILTER light blinks (approx. 3

seconds). The control is now reset for 12

months or another 416 gallons.

Note: The Water Filter Reminder will

operate if the filter bypass is in place.

If you have other questions please let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

I discovered by sheer luck that if I hold down the OK button for a few seconds the filter indicator changed from the flashing 1% to 99%.
