Read manual, I think it may need to be pushed in like a child proof **** container.

Posted on Dec 09, 2016

Testimonial: ""Read manual": Is that as in YOU read the manual or are you telling ME to read the manual? Well, I've read it, many times, and of course is needs to be pushed in, but what's "like a child proof **** container" supposed to mean? I pushed it in; it won't turn the 1/4 clockwise turn (see, I've read the manual). And I've replaced it many times before. My question was WHY won't it turn this time. Never mind, I'll just call an appliance repair service."

    The question leaves a lot to be desired from a troubleshooting standpoint - like little info. I haven't had mine long enough to experience the issue. The "child proof" refers to the fact that pushing it in allows it to unhook from the stop preventing it from turning. I'm not even sure it has a stop but I seem to remember it snapping in. Could be there is a release lever.

Cut water supply off to frig disconnect water supply line to frig water inlet valve turn water back on to make sure you are getting good water supplied to water inlet valve some times water cut off gets stopped up. If you are getting good water flow to water inlet valve then check to make water valve is opening up all the way. if not then replace valve.

Whirlpool side by side fridge won't dispense water.


Most likely the problem is related to a defective water control valve on the dispenser side of the valve. If your model is the ED2FHEXN it will use the=> W10408179 Water Inlet Valve

You should always turn the water supply off before removing the filter cartridge just to insure less water clean up should a water valve be stuck open. At this point I still believe that the water control valve is at fault for not allowing water flow to the dispenser. Here is a parts manual=> ED2FHEXN Parts Manual and here is a link to your ED2FHEXN User Manual You may get some water flow spraying should there be a valve stuck open but that is not the cause of you not getting water to the dispenser. Your ice maker is still working right? I will be here should you have questions or comments, Thanks Sea Breeze

How do I replace the filter in my whirlpool refrigerator, model GR2FHTXT


In the toe grill of your reefrigerator you should find a filter cap that is covering your filter. Rotate this cap to the left 1/4 of a turn you should feel the filter release from the housing then pull the filter out and discard it. Take the Filter cap from the old filter and reinstall on your new filter. Install your new filter in to the housing applying slight pressure turn the filter 1/4 of a turn to the right. You should feel the filter lock in to place. Now with a BIG container go to your water dispenser and dispense about 3 gallons of water.

Where is the filter for the ice maker on whirlpool refer model number ED2CHOXK005


Removing and replacing a water filter - base grill location

Filters situated in the base grill (below the freezer compartment) of Whirlpool-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these two steps:
  1. Grasp the filter's end and make a one-quarter turn to the left.
  2. Pull the filter straight out.
To replace with a new filter, repeat these two steps in the opposite order, making sure to first remove the red cap from the filter. Proceed by pushing the filter straight into the slot, and then giving it a one quarter turn to the right.
Note: Replacing this type of filter is quick - there is no need to unplug your refrigerator when replacing it. Also, this filter should be replaced every six months.

Water filter won't come out when I push the button


Push button? It should be a turn to the left to remove if it is a whirpool located at the bottom. These are twist out not push to release. The only push to releases are made by electrolux.

Our Whirlpool side by side has moisture on the glass shelves on the refrigerator side.


Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

THIS IS THE CAP FOR THE WATER FILTER!
It will turn 1/4 turn and then pull it out and the water filter comes out to replace this internal water filter!
No the water will not leak out or rush out when you remove it!
Just do not leave it out! Turns counter clockwise with force 1/4 turn or so!!

Filter for the water dispenser


LOOK AT THE TOE PLATE BELOW THE DOORS. THERE SHOULD BE A ROUND DIAL UNDER THE FREEZER DOOR.
TURN IT COUNTER CLOCKWISE ONE QUARTER TURN AND PULL IT OUT. THE DIAL THAT LOOKS LIKE PART OF THE TOE PLATE WILL SLIDE OFF THE END OF THE FILTER. YOU CAN FIND A NEW FILTER AT MOST HOME IMPROVEMENT CENTERS OR YOUR LOCAL WHIRLPOOL DEALER.
