How to change the water filter on a whirlpool refrig model # ED2VEXVQ00. the owners manual has no directions.

    the owners manual was no help in determining how to remove the filter element. the wife figured it out in 5 minutes.

    next to the filter cap, on the kick board, is a button (on the left side of the filter). puch the button (its hard to push) and pull the cap straight out WITHOUT twisting. after the filter is removed, the cap twists off. install the cap onto the new filter and push filter back into its hole. the cap will only allow you to install the filter with the correct alignment. keep pushing until the button 'pops' out and locks the filter in place.

    done. enjoy cold beverage of choice.

The filter is located in the kick plate. There should be a handle you need to turn and le filter will release. The handle aprt of the filter will seperate from the filter and need to be used on the new filter.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

    I am glad you got the filter changed. They don't give you much info in those manuals. They want you to call them to fix it.

    Please feel free to rate my responses to you so that others as well as myself will know how I am doing.

I have a friend with a Whirlpool ED5PHAXMB00. It's producing ice, and dispensing ice, but no water will dispense. She changes the filter evey time the light comes on, so am thinking it's not that. Have...

Some refrig's , water goes to filter first , some thru water valve first and then the filter . On this model , it goes to the water valve first , then the filter .
1) never change the filter just because the light says to . Only replace when icecubes get small or when water flow from dispensor slows . A filter can last 6 mths- 1yr. and sometimes longer .
2) the resevoir is in the refrig section , behind the lower crispers
3) the water valve is probably the problem

Ed25rfxfw01 whirlpool fridge water dispenser ...I have a slow drip from the dispenser hose. I assume I need a new water inlet valve. How do I access the inlet valve for replacing?

It should be on the right hand side in the back take off the compressor cover on the back should be 8 or so 1/4 screws nutdriver type and then two more hold on the water valve. If you have a RO system hooked up to refrig you may need to change the filters on the ro or just change the filter on the refrig. those two will also cause the water to drip thru the valve allowing it to drip on the front

You might have a frozen line. Also and this seems more important to you its prob to cold, Trust me to cold of a refrig will cause hollow ice cubes first leading to a frozen line. Clean your coils, if you have another refrig empty out into that, unplug it leave doors open a couple days. If you can get to water line use a hair dryer from a distance defrost line, turn down freezer half knotch 1 full one at maximum. should fix issues, especially if filter already changed. If this all check prob a clogged line, not just frozen.
