SRS580DW Water filter indicator red light is on. Where in the fridge do I find it to take it out to replace pleace?


Resetting the water filter indicator light can also be found in the user manual for your SRS580DW Refrigerator User Manual page 8 The water filter indicator initially lights up green. Press the ICE TIMER and ICE MODE buttons at the same time for about three seconds to reset the water filter installation date. • The green light changes to orange after five months to indicate that you should soon change the water filter. It changes to red after an additional one month (six months after the water filter was changed or installed) to indicate that you must change the water filter. • If you wish to turn off the filter indicator lamp or the filter is not connected, press the ice timer & ice mode button simultaneously for 5 seconds. If you wish to turn on the filter indicator lamp again, press the ice timer & ice mode button simultaneously for 3 seconds.

Where is the water filter located and how do i replace it.


The water filter is located in the fresh food or fridge side of the appliance, at the rear - in the upper right hand corner.

To change the filter, open the fridge door, clear the top shelf and grasp the filter. All that is needed is to turn the filter to the left about a 1/4 turn for it to drop down. A few drops of water may spill onto the shelf. To install a replacement, remove the protective cover (shown as a red cap above), and position under opening for filter. Gently push upward while turning the filter to the right. The filter will pop in, and as you turn about 1/4 of the way around, it will be drawn up a small amount until seated. At this point it will no longer turn any further.

More info about the filter is below (taken from the manual).

The water "Filter Indicator" light

• "Filter Indicator" light lets you know when it is time to change your water filter cartridge. The light
will change from green to orange. This tells you that it is almost time to change the current cartridge.
It is recommended that you replace the cartridge when the light changes to red. (see "Install the water filter" section for more information)
• If you install water filter, throw away the first six glassfulls of water filter, or until water flows clearly to flush impurities in the water supply system.


Using the dispenser without the water filter

• You can not use the water and ice dispenser without a water filter cartridge because the water line
blocks at water supply.
Ordering replacement filters
• To order more water filter cartridges, call 1-800-SAMSUNG and ask for accessory Part # DA29-
00003A or contact your authorized Samsung dealer.

How do I change the water filter


Removing and replacing a water filter - upper right hand corner location

Filters situated in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator compartment of Maytag-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  • These eight inch long filters are housed in their own compartment. The base of the compartment can be released by pushing in on the release clip found at the end of the housing unit. Allow the base of the housing compartment to hang down while you remove and replace your filter.


  • Twist the spent filter to the left (counter-clockwise) and gently pull on it to remove it. There is an automatic water shut off to keep leaks and spills to a minimum.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove the plastic wrap, and peel off the aluminum topping. Insert the new filter into the housing unit. Twist the filter to the right (clockwise) until it clicks into place. Replace the base of the filter housing by cliping it back in place.


  • Condition the filter by dispensing several glasses of water through your refrigerator. This ensures that all fine carbon particles have been removed.


  • Check the filter and the inside of the refrigerator for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and install the filter again.


  • Finally, reset the 'change filter' indicator light, if your refrigerator has one, at the front of your refrigerator. The procedure for resetting the change filter indicator light can vary from fridge to fridge. Typically, the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.


Removing and replacing a water filter - center ceiling location

Filters situated in the center ceiling of the refrigerator compartment of Maytag-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  • Turn the filter a quarter turn to the left, in a counter-clockwise motion. The 'unlocked' symbol on the filter will be lined up with the indicator line that is molded into the refrigerator just above the filter. Allow the ears of the cartridge to disengage from the filter holder.


  • Gently pull down on the filter, being careful to not spill any water still in the filter. Discard the used filter.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove and discard the red plastic cap found on the top of the new filter.


  • Apply the appropriate month sticker to the filter to remind your self to remove and replace the filter in six months' time.


  • Insert the new filter into the filter opening. Line the 'unlock' symbol on the filter up with the indicator line that is molded into the refrigerator above the filter. Turn the filter a quarter turn to the right, in a clockwise motion. You will be able to feel the filter stop when it is all the way in, and the 'locked' symbol on the filter will now be lined up with the indicator line above the filter.


  • Close the refrigerator door and dispense several glasses of water through the water dispenser in the door in order to purge the new filter of any impurities. Open the refrigerator door again and check for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and replace the new filter again.


  • Finally, reset the 'change filter' indicator light, if your refrigerator has one, at the front of your refrigerator. The procedure for resetting the change filter indicator light can vary from fridge to fridge. Typically, the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.
