Try removing the top on the backwash valve and see if the spider gasket is in good condition. If it has a problem it will appiear to have water going through the filter while it is actually by-passing in the valve.

The water inlet valve is operated by line voltage supplied through the ice maker control. Power is applied for approximately 7-9 seconds during the harvest cycle and energizes the solenoid on the valve to allow water to flow.
You can check the solenoid for continuity with a multi-meter. On models with multiple solenoid inlet valves, you will need to determine which portion or portions of the valve are used for the ice maker. You can normally follow the inlet tubing from the ice maker back to the valve. Unplug the refrigerator and turn off the water supply to the valve before working with this part.

(HOW TO TEST INLET VALVE: Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush or warm running water. If you cannot clear theclog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves). Test thewaterinletvalve for continuity using a multImeter. First, inspect the coil for an indication of it's ohm rating. If no information is printed on the coil, then use the range of 170 to 500 ohms. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester should display a reading that matches the coil's rating or if you don't know the rating then it should fall into the range of 170 to 500 ohms. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced. If the inlet valve has two coils, test the second coil in the same way (note that they may not have the same ohm rating). The valve can also fail mechanically. So even if it passes the electrical test, it may still require replacement. If you have ruled out all other possibilities, go ahead and replace the valve.

Check the tap valve.A bad tap valve-the little device that connects the ice maker's water supply tube to the water pipe-may cause the problem where the ice maker's supply tube connects to the water pipe. If necessary, replace the inlet valve and the tap valve. For the tap valve, use the type that requires you to drill a 1/4-inch hole (as opposed to the "self-piercing" type). You can buy anice maker connection kitand do this yourself, or call a repair person or plumber to install an inline water filter when replacing the valve.

After changing the water filter, how do I get the red light on the control panel on the front of the refrigerator to go out?


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.

Have replaced the water filter - how do i reset/turn off the "change filter" light ?

Press and hold the "Reset Filter" button until the indicator lights go off if your model refrigerator has a "Reset Filter" button on the control panel.
  • Step 4 Hold the "Lock" and "Light" buttons on the control panel until the filter indicator lights turn off if your model refrigerator does not have a "Reset Filter" button. For models that do not have a "Light" button, press and hold the "Lock" and "Water" buttons.

    that depends if you want filtered water or not. if you like the taste of your tap water, then no. but if you have hard or well water, you'll want one to keep the pipes and solenoid clean.

    I need to bypass a filter in RS267LASH Samsung refrigerator

    From the Samsung Online FAQ for my RF266AASH

    Can I Use the Water Dispenser Without a Water Filter? spacer.gif 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.
