Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
We have model ED5NHGXV001. The filters are more $ than we want to spend, and we can get a very good behind the refrigerator filter that lasts for 3 years, and costs significantly less. Is it possible to remove the installed filter from the frig, and bypass it, so we can hook up the less expensive filter?
just connect the lines in the fridge filter to each other
There are very good ceramic filters available for domestic water supply that can be fitted anywhere in the supply line to the fridge or any other tap for that matter
The ceramic filters had the added advantage that beside being the filter that removes the absolute finest particle, all you have to do is every few years is to scrape off the build up off the ceramic and they are good to be reused again
While the initial ceramic filter may be expensive, the fact that they can be scraped clean every few years makes them virtually a life time investment

SOURCE: freezer does not make ice
You need to check and see if ice maker has any water init. if not check the fill tube that goes thru the back wall for stoppage while you have it out rin the maker thru a harvest mode and listen for the sounds of the solonoid opening. If tube is full you'll need to replace the slow leaking valve a common problem. for parts call 704-819-6557

Since I didn't have the service manual, I had to play around until I stumbled into a way to remove the filter. To remove the filter: 1. locate the filter (bottom front under the refrigerator door). 2. push the button next to the filter cap until the filter is released. 3 remove the fillter and take that filter to the local home supply store to make sure you have the correct match. 4. replace cap on new filter, remove inlet protecting caps on new filter, and push the filter into place.

Hello. Thanks for choosing fixya! The most common cause for your problem is that someone accidentally raised the wire in the icemaker area that turns it off. Check that first if the wire is up, push it down and within a few hours you will have new ice. The second most common problem is that the cubes in the mold got stuck in there. the fix is to use a blow dryer to free them up, then dry out the mold and spray some PAM cooking spray in to the mold to lubricate it. The final possibliity is that there is ice in the water supply line that feeds your ice maker. Once again get out the blow dryer and thaw that ice so that the water flows once again. good luck with it. regards, joe
