Good day,
Grasp the filter firmly and turn it counter-clockwise until it releases.
Some water will spill so hold a small bowl under it.
Install the new one in reverse order. Pushed up turn clockwise until it seats.
It will take a while to purge the air out of the system, so be patient.

They are simple to install, and can be installed on any model refrigerator. They snap / connect into place in the water supply tubing located behind the refrigerator. Many filters use simple compression fittings that are a breeze to connect. The in-line filter kit comes with directions and the fittings to install it. The filter should be changed about every six months because it becomes saturated with gunk.

For a first time filter change all you should have to do is:
1. Turn off the water supply line
2. Unscrew the compression nuts on both ends of the filter and remove it.
3. Take the compression nuts off the new filter (not used as the old compression nuts still in place should be fine)
4. Insert the water line in to each end of the water filter.
5. Tighten both compresson nuts (one on each end of the water filter)
6. Turn on the water supply

Note: There is a chance that your Ice Maker will skip a few ice making cycles until all of the air is purged out of the new filter.

7. Sit back in awe as to how easy it was to change the in-line water filter :)

Take care and thanks for using Fixya!

Make sure that the water filter is the right one and that it is pushed all the way in. If that is correct than There should be two solenoids located behind the fridge at the bottom one is for your ice and one for water. Unplug unit and test the water solenoid with an ohm meter across the two terminals if it ohms out or beeps than your solenoid is bad.

Refrigerator - Water Filter Indicator Light Will Not Shut Off After you change the filter the RESET WATER FILTER must be pressed and held until the red light goes off.

Note: If you do not hold the pad in, the light will stay on. Also, if you hold the pad in for a long period of time, the light will go off and then come back on.

If this does not turn the light off, having it checked by a service technician is recommended
Here is a list of refrigerator manufacturers and how to reset the filter change indicator light:
Amana- Press and hold the Auto and Dispenser Lock buttons until the water filter status indicator light flashes.
Frigidaire- Press and Hold the Reset Button Until the Indicator Light Flashes.
GE General Electric- Press and Hold the Reset Button for around 8 Seconds.
HotPoint- Press and Hold the Reset Button for around 8 Seconds.
Jenn-Air- Press and Hold The Water and Lock Buttons until the Water Filter light flashes.
Kitchen Aid- Press and Release the Light Button 5 times Quickly.
Maytag- Press and Hold The Light and Lock Buttons until the Water Filter light flashes.
Samsung- Press and Hold the Ice Type and Child Lock Buttons at the same time for 3 seconds.
Whirlpool- Press and Release the Light Button 5 times Quickly.

If it is a new fridge or just hooked up the watter for the first time you need to cycle the ice a couple of times. What the coler is is charcal from the filter. Discard the firs two baches of ice then it will be fine.

Filter status, display help


This is normal. The light is on only when it's time to change the filter. I guess you have already found the filter timer reset procedure in your owner's manual!

Enjoy your new fridge!
