Cant make the water work

I have a whirlpool refidgerator that is new and the mod number is ED2KHAXVLOO I have just put in a new water filter and it wont work. I have followed the instructions in the manual. I have also hit the "reset filter" button on the fridge. there is no crimp or blockage in the system. the ice does work. the filter is the correct one I believe. it is PUR number 4396710

There is no link between the filter and the light, that light runs off of a timer. Take the filter back out and look at the housing that the filter goes into, some models have a little button that gets pushed in by the filter, it is a mechanical stop to prevent water flow with no filter in place. Do you hear a clicking noise when you attempt to get water out of the unit?

I have a Whirlpool fridge that needs a new water filter. Twice now, when I remove the filter to change it, water gushes out even though the ice maker is OFF. I quickly turn off the water line and mop


The Whirlpool fridge requires a water supply connection to a cold water line. Before you connect the water supply to the water line on the fridge, make certain the unit is unplugged from the wall. Press the button and drop down the cover. Then twist to release the old filter and twist the new one into the filter head. Run about 2 gallons of water through dispenser to remove any air from the lines. Liquid EPDM Rubber Roof Coatings for Roof Leaks Repair EPDMCoatings

Mod.g17fvcxw001 leaks water from vents inside between light and water filter.


Hi,You will need to look at either the filter or water line too and from the filter housing for the leak. I have seen filters with flat spots on the "O" rings that will cause them to leak, even brand new out of the box.
Good Luck

Replaced a waterfilter in my ref with wrong filter model


The new filter you used will not damage anything in the refrigerator, the only difference will be in the fill rate, it may fill slower than you like.

Sometimes the refidgerator freezes and then leaks


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you have any other question. Mike
