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?

AFTER I CHANGED WATER FILTER IN WHIRLPOOL FRIDGERATER THE WATER COMES OUT HOT


Are you sure that your water line is hooked to cold water. It sounds like you are hooked up to hot water and not cold.

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

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.

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.
