That model looks like a Whirlpool, I am very familiar with their set ups

We put the filter in two places

Commonly its right under the freezer door in the grille area, you will see this big knob shaped item, turn this from east to west to north to south (counter clockwise a quarter turn) then pull the filter out, if its is a push button the button is usually triangle shaped and right next to the filter. Push it in till you here a click

The last two places in the upper right corner of the freezer OR the refrigerator section, if not in any of these three places you dont have one

Samsung Frig water dispenser makes loud humming sound when dispensing water. This began after changing water filter.

Check to see if you have rotated new filter in the engaged direction.
I have had a few filters that were defective and were not fully charged. If you have the reciept, take old filter back to retailer and see if you can exchange it for another one. Also, make sure you have the right filter model number. You can check the model number for the filter with your refrigerator model number at
Hope this helps

Where is the water filter what is the part number and how do you change it

Hello Dwane;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number of your unit. The water filter location is dependent on the model number. The model number is located on a label on the inside of the fresh food section liner.

You have a bottom freezer. In general the water filter is located in the upper right hand corner of you right side fresh food section.

You may have a screw on the side panel to remove the cover, or some retainer clips, of which you must squeeze the cover housing to remove, or you may have free access.

Once locating, or accessing the water filter, grab the base and turn 1/4 turn clockwise to release and pull down. Insert the new water filter, insert and turn counter wise to the right.

Purge the air out of the filter system. Water filters are dry and have air in them. With your water dispenser fill several cups until al of the air is purged out. There will spiriting sounds.

You replace your water filter when you notice your ice cubes are small & when the water flow from your dispenser is low. The change water indicator light is a timer. It is set to cycle every six months. It is like a egg timer. It is not connected to anything.
Depending on the size of your family, and the usage you may need to change the water filter every six months or every 1-1/2- 2 years.

I am getting water to the fridge but not to the ice maker or water dispenser. though both are trying to cycle and pump.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The symtom you describe would initially make me think the water inlet valve is clogged with debris. However.. since you did not mention a model number... there are units that have an internal water filter in them. A clogged / full of debris water filter will also cause this symptom. Most units with water filters have the filter located in the lower left front grille or in the fresh food compartment. If you would provide a model number I could go much more in depth as to what you could do. Once you provide a MAKE and MODEL number I will gladly assist you at that time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Have ice but no water. Changed filter and can hear water filling filter. Front control panel operations intermittent at best. Light in dispenser not working.

what is the model number?also try pushing crushed ice or cubes,just worked on a g.e. and the control panel on the door was bad,it kept beeping and if you pressed crushed ice the water would work,had to change out the board on the door,send model number so i can look it up for you,if you can hear the water fillling up in the filter it could be the board or a frozen water tank line,remove the bottom draws and see if you can see the water tank,with a hair dryer heat up the line where it connects to the tank if your model has a tank,send model number

Water Filter?

This is not a complete model number. I do not see a filter but like I said, to be sure you need to come up with 5 or 6 more numbers or letters. It could be one of 10 plus modles

Where is the filter and how do you replace it

The diagram shows the filter to be located in fresh food compartment near the controls. You will need to turn main water supply off and then turn counter clockwise. Replace with new one and purge the air out meaning it will take a little time to get the air out until you get clean water again. Below is a small diagram, you can get more information free from the people that sell te filters and parts. I need to assume your model number, but if you know the correct model number enter it in the model search feature, model GS2987EKDA

Part number UKF7003AXX
Water filter is on left lower side of picture #26 , Thanks, Sea Breeze
