How do i remove the handle of my whirlpool fridge?

I have a new whirlpool 20.5 cu fridge. I want to change the handle from left to right. I can do everything necessary except I can't figure out how to get the handle off to make the change.

There are no visible pins or opening on the handle to get to the screws that hold the handle in place.

Suggestions? This is a bottom freezer refrigerator.

Firmly grasp the handle with one hand and put your other hand on top of the door and push the handle up. Took me awhile but I just figured it out. I just changed everything and it worked out great. Good luck.

I have a side by side whirlpool water filteration system fridge and I need to know how to replace the water filter on the fridge


I can only guess because I don't know your model number. At the bottom of the fridge at the front there should be a round knob or handle about 2 to 21/2 inches, you should be able to turn this and pull out the long filter tube, take the number off it and get a new one.

Handle on fridge side is loose


Look at the top and bottom of the handle. There should be a plastic end cap you can gently pry off exposing the screws to remove and tighten the handle.

My side by side refrigerator handles are loose (Whirlpool gold)


Hi, Most newer models have a screw behind the plastic cover on the handle. Take a good look at the handle and see if the cover can be removed. It should just snap on. If not, please get me you model # and I can assist you further.

Thanks
