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: 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.

SOURCE: I have a GD22DQ model

Hello Dollar1392,

I understand that you can not locate the water filter for your unit. If you have a water filter in your unit it will be located in one of two locations at the bottom of the unit in the grille or in the top of the refrigerator section on the right side in the rear corner. If the filter is not located at one of these locations then there is no filter on your unit. You will need to put an in-line filter in your water supply line.


Thank you for choosing FixYa.com if you have any further questions please post back to the thread.

Unable to locate water filter cartridge

it says the filter is down on the bottom just like in this diagram,the model number you sent isn't the full number,if you open the fridge door and look on the right hand wall up near the ceiling there should be a tag there with the full model number,if it's an older unit it could be down near the bottom fridge door hinge,send the number back and i can check it for you.

Whirlpool side by side fridge won't dispense water.


Most likely the problem is related to a defective water control valve on the dispenser side of the valve. If your model is the ED2FHEXN it will use the=> W10408179 Water Inlet Valve
3_8_2013_2_19_43_am.jpg


You should always turn the water supply off before removing the filter cartridge just to insure less water clean up should a water valve be stuck open. At this point I still believe that the water control valve is at fault for not allowing water flow to the dispenser. Here is a parts manual=> ED2FHEXN Parts Manual and here is a link to your ED2FHEXN User Manual You may get some water flow spraying should there be a valve stuck open but that is not the cause of you not getting water to the dispenser. Your ice maker is still working right? I will be here should you have questions or comments, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a whirlpool side by side fridge with water dispensor and ice maker. The light is on that the filter needs replacing but I can't find it. Where is the filter located?


For most side by side refrigerators, the filter is in the grill at the bottom in the center (approximately) of the freezer side. Just push in on the cover over the filter (it is a circular piece).

For exact information, you need to provide the model. Many Whirlpool appliance manuals are available here: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp . Type in the model in the Manuals & Literature box.

I hope this helps.

Whirlpool ref model #ED5PVEXVS00, need filter for this model. We don't know the part number needed or where on the refrigerator that the filter is located. Please help with both


The original part number is 4396841; cartridge T2RFWG2. The filter fits into the grill at the bottom of the refrigerator (nearly centered on the left hand side of the grill). There is a cap covering the filter.

The fridge can be used without a filter if the cap is taken off the old filter and put back into place. For a diagram that includes the filter and grill location see: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fW0812046-00001.png . The filter is part 30 in the diagram. The entire set of parts diagrams, leading to parts list and prices are available here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Whirlpool-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-ED5PVEXVS00/1198/0165000 .

Another on-line source for the filter is: http://www.partstore.com/Part/Whirlpool/Whirlpool/ED5PVEXVS00/Whirlpool/Whirlpool/4396841/New.aspx .

I hope this helps.

Water not coming out of fridge


First, I'm not a Whirlpool Tech.
*** Following is for information only.***
* Sputtering or no water from Ice machine and tap indicates a clog on the water line.
* Most of the newer (last 15 years) refrigerators come with a built in filter. It's probably clogged. Check the link below for changing out filter or type in "Whirlpool refrigerator water filter replacement'
* There could be ice blockage in water line if you have a very low temperature setting on your fridge. Most are set in the middle of the dial. If your set at maximum could then this setting may be too cold for the water line (it's coiled in the back of the refrigerator and may have frozen up.) Back the temperature a bid and give it a day or two to melt.
* The ice tray is missing a cover.
* Ice tray "Ice Full" lever is stuck in the Full position. Check if the Ice level (usually a stiff wire) is in the down or empty position. (some lock in the full position to turn off ice maker manually.)
* Check the water line to the refrigerator (or In-Line water filter) for water pressure. Turn off water supply. Remove water line from refrigerator and place end of line in empty bucket. Hold line down and have someone turn water back on then off after a few seconds (they may be too far to hear you yell "turn it off?!") If it just sputters then the line needs to be cleared. Check the needle valve for clogging. Close it off and re-open it several times. Otherwise this valve needs to be replaced.
* Follow the flow of water through each part: Supply line, supply valve, Water filter, Refrigerator inner filter, Tap point and Ice maker.
* Final, Check your warranty as any work (other than a MFR recommended customer water filter change out.) will void it. Call your vendor for service to be safe. (Have them do an annual maintenance while they are servicing your unit.)

Changing the water filter in my Frigidaire


My Frigidaire PureSource water filter housing wouldn't unscrew either. Even with the supplied plastic "wrench" and later a cloth-covered pipe wrench, it wouldn't budge. Since both my icemaker and my door dispenser stopped dispensing water, and the filter housing in the fridge wouldn't budge, I suspected that the filter was full of frozen water. (Sometimes things on the top shelf of the fridge freeze, so it was obviously too cold.) I used a hair dryer on the water filter housing for a few minutes, and then the water filter unscrewed easily. Sure enough, the whole inside was a block of frozen water.

This would have been such a simple repair, HOWEVER unfortunately it turned out that I wrenched it too hard and broke the inlet valve on the housing. As soon as I thawed out the filter and reassembled, water was pouring out of the top. Took off the big cover at the top ceiling of the fridge and saw my problem.

It's only about a $25 part, but I'd advise that you be careful to only turn, without rocking back and forth, the housing when trying to unscrew. I guess I wiggled it back and forth too much and cracked it.
