Most all Whirlpool refrigerators with a filter have the filter at the base where the 'kickplate' grill is. Simply turn it counterclockwise and pull it out. Reverse procedure to install new filter. No need to turn off water or anything like that. If you have a water filter light that requires resetting, press down and release the light switch 5 times within 10 seconds.

you might be able to get a little room
look at the bottom hinge of the door
the one you want to lower
you should see a few spacers between
the bootm of the door and the top of the hinge
as well as being able to lower the hinge pin by screwing it down

It appears your dispenser mico switch has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

i don't think there is a pan in your machine,it's built into the bottom frame near the compressor where the water evaporates from the heat.most likely you have a blocked drain in the freezer or one of the water lines has a crack or the water valve is cracked and leaking.open the freezer door,look at the floor of the freezer to see if there's any ice there on the freezer floor,if so you have a blocked drain,where is the water leaking from,in the front of the machine or the rear,also do you have a water line hooked up to the machine?
