From the Samsung Online FAQ for my RF266AASH
Can I Use the Water Dispenser Without a Water Filter? The water and ice dispensers will work without an AquaPure water filter installed. The water filter housings are designed as rotary valves that allow the water to bypass the water filter whenever there is no filter or the filter is not in the lock position.
Models designed for use with the AquaPure water filter are shipped with a cap in place to cover the opening and keep it free of debris prior to the installation of the water filter. It is not necessary to have this cap in place for the unit to bypass the water nor is it intended to plug the housing to prevent leaks.
Note: This does not apply to the Quatro Convertible models. The filter must be installed on this model.

locate water filter bracket(normally in fridge compartment), then use screwdriver to remove from the frame. You will see two plastic pipes connected to this bracket. one will be water in and the other water out. pull the two off the bracket and join them together. (be inventive). Connect your RO system to the main inlet after original water supply is removed. Remember, your "filter to be replaced" light will still flash after a period as the fridge has its own software, counting depressions for cartridge replacement. (you would painstakingly have to reset.}

I just got my whirlpool fridge and I'm having the exact same problem! The blue cap appears stuck and I'm afraid I'll break it if I force it with a tool. Please post a solution if you get one - I'll do the same. Thanks.

almost all filter model have a by pass cap that to install it just remove filter and install the cap / its as easy as replacing the filter it self . you will have to order it from l g or your parts supply . ****

Testimonial: "I have asked everyone and no one has had a solution, til now.. Thank You very much.."
I have been searched for awhile, no LG by pass for 5231JA2006A. I tried to modify the pipe at back of the refrigerator. My ice make did not get water and water dispenser works. Looks the diagram.... like this... ( by guess) ....
From supply ( bottom of the refrigerator), goes to top into filter. From filter, one goes to ice-mater. One goes back out to back and connect to water dispenser ... This sound not logic.... But looks like this.
I think I need to cut a used water filter and sealed inside to make a by-pass.
