There are two tabs on the top of the refrigerator. To see them, you'll need to get almost over top of it and pull firmly. Once you see the tabs, push down with your thumbs on the spots with the tabs, and it should rock down and off. There are small hook like clips on the bottom that hold it together. Don't worry about being too rough with it when you put it back on either. You'll need to put the bottom hook thingies in the holes, and then rock the grille up flat. Bang it with the heel of your hand where the clips are, and there ya go. :)

How to remove bottom vent on refrigerator

There are only two "clips" equidistantly spaced along the length and near the top of the vent grill. Important: Open both doors on side by side as the top of the vent grill has a lip that extends from the top to under the two doors.. Pick a side and lightly pull straight out, repeating procedure for opposite side. Remember to open both doors when re-attaching.

Cannot attach toe plate

Hello - To remove the toe grille you will need to have the doors of the refrigerator open, the grille simply snaps into place. Remove the right side first and then the left, as the water line is on that side. When replacing follow the steps in reverse.

Where the water filter whirlpool gold model no GS6SHEXMQ00 located? the last home owner lost the manual.

The base grille water filter cartridge is located below the freezer
compartment door. Depending on your model, you may have a
filter that is installed behind the base grille or a filter that
is installed through the base grille

This should be the right manual

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.

Doors are hard to open on my new Whirlpool Conquest sided-by-side

2 things come to mind:

1) Check to see if the unit is level
2) if it is simply a suction issue when opening, try wiping the big gasket and the contact surface with some furniture polish

Whirlpool Gold. Front grill won't come off.

when you remove this grill it feels as if it will break before coming off. the trick for removing it is to grab in the center near the bottom and then pull up and out. it will flex alot and feel as if it might break put it will pull loose from the clips on either end. open the doors when removing it to give you plenty of room.
to reinstall line the 2 "c" clips on eihter end with the with the reciever clips on the unit then push into the clips. 
the grill will not break if done this way. message me back if you have nay further questions thanks Peyton

Problems with Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing...? How do I remove the front panel in order to get access to the icemaker parts?

Use a screw driver to pry up at the two notches at the bottom of the panel. I thought that might work, but had been afraid if I did I would break the panel.
