Its hard to remove, but you gotta pull from each side really hard. Once you get it off turn the cover on the filter counterclock wise until it comes out. If you can't remove it get someone who is stronger. This should work, do em all the time.

Just purchased a RS53K refrigerator and dont know where to install the water filter

Check at the bottom of the fridge where you should find a cover. Sometimes solid or looks like the floor grate. Pull it forward and you should find another cover to get to the filter. Be sure to shut off the water before removing the filter.

I cant find the filter on my hotpoint no frost refridg.number csx22gr where is it.

your model number doesn't come up.if it's an older machine some didn't come with water filters,you had to add an inline filter on the copper water line,you would run your copper,go down the cellar or behind the machine,cut the copper and the filter connects in between the copper where you cut the line.if you do have a filter it could be in the fridge section top right side or down in the bottom kickplate.i found your model the a was missing after the b doesn't show a filter,this is an older unit,check behind or in basement,wherever the water line goes and see if there's a filter added into it,if not you can cut the copper and add a filter yourself.home depot sells them

Where is the water filter on Whirlpool Model SB540W Refrigerator

The filter is more than likely located at the bottom of the machine where the grill is. You'll see an area that is circular with a handle that sits flush with the grate itself

There is hardly any water flow from the faucet in the refrigerator door. A re light at the top of the refrigerator side sys the water filter is plugged. Where is the filter and how do I clean it? ...


Without knowing the manufacturer and model of your fridge, it will be impossible to tell you exactly.

Some manufacturers have the filter installed on the back side of the fridge, some will have it behind an access panel. Others will have the filter located at the bottom kick panel on the front of the fridge. Others will have it located in the refrigerator compartment, behind an access panel.

If you post the make and model, perhaps I can find the user manual for you, maybe a source for filters as well. Filters are typically replaced, and not cleaned.

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

Several possibilities. Clogged water filter (can be eliminated if you dump the ice bucket..if it makes two more batches of ice it's not the filter). Frozen water container (behind lower refrigerator drawers) or bad fill valve behind the refrigerator where the water line goes in. Likeliest is water valve.

Final possibility is a frozen water line inside freezer door. This would NOT be desired nor would you be fixing it yourself. Good Luck.

The water dispensor is dripping water, what do I need to do to fix this thanks

On back of refrigerator there is a water control valve. One goes to ice maker and the other goes to the water dispenser. Unplug the one that goes to the dispenser and if the water continues to flow then you will need to replace the control valve. If you could find the model number near floor and behind the fresh food section door, I could tell you which part number you need, Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Mold in water dispenser tube

Your refrigerator has a filter system below the bottom and behind the kick plate. Two or three times you need to turn the water supply off to refrigerator and fill the old filter with clorox to kill the algae growing in the storage tank and after you finally get this out and purge the chlorine from system will you be able to use the ice or water to consume. I know this seams harsh but really there is very little else that can remove this without changing the whole water system. Once this is done change the filter regularly and this will help, click on link below and place your model number into the model search feature. This will give you pictures of the parts and there location. Let me know how this goes, Thanks, Sea Breeze
