I need help replacing a Kenmore Elite Water Filter - 46- 9010

I am replacing a Kenmore Elite Water Filter - # 46- 9010. I would like to know which direction the filter should be in before I rotate it 1/4 turn to the left. Do I insert it horizontally and turn it so it ends up being vertical? Or is it the reverse? Thank you for your assistance.

Insert it so it is vertical and then rotate one quarter turn to the right so it is now horizontal nad the line matches the grill on the front of the fridge.

    also only use the Kenmore filter, no off brands. They will eventually leak and cause all sorts of damage to your kitchen floor!

Have a Kenmore Elite Side by Side and there is water running down the side of the fridge which appears to be coming from the water filter. Already changed it twice.

Did you flush the system after changing the filter? Air can cause water to leak if it not flushed after each filter change. It takes about 6 to 7 minutes to get all the air flushed out. I hope that helps...

We keep getting an f35 error on our Kenmore Elite front load washer. Even when we try to restart the load (no soap to rinse it) the SUDS and f35 errors come up. Any suggestions? I don't see f35 in the...

First of all, be sure you are using only HE detergant. Your drain filter is likely clogged and needs cleaned. On the front lower panel of the washer, remove the screws and panel. You will see a drain filter (about the size of a tennis ball). Before removing the drain filter you are going to need to hand bail the water out of your drum or all the water will run out when you remove the drain filter. Slid a plastic trash back up under the drain filter to help contain whatever water you could not bail out by hand. Remove the drain filter and clean it thoroughly. Replace the drain filter, replace the lower front panel and run a rinse and spin cycle. If sudsing error continues and you are using HE detergant, you may need to lower the amount of detergant you are using. However, 9 times out of 10, it is just the clogged drain filter.

Can't identify "water filter indicator light"

the indicator light could be on the control panel inside the refr section if your controls are there, or it is most likely on the front of the dispenser panel. it only comes on when you draw water from the dispenser and thats when you will see it be green, filter ok, yellow, filter at 80% life, or red, time to replace the water filter.
also you dont need to shut off the water when changing the filter as it is made with a shut off device in the filter housing already and is automatic.
by the way filters are expensive, go online and check prices. google "water filters" and find a good price.
