Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a kitchenaid side by side refreigerat or model # KSRS25ILW03 ser # SP2533696. I am trying to replace the water filter. My new filter model number is 4396508. I followed the instruction on the manual. But the new filter would not go to the end. It sticks approx. half an inch out. So I could not lock the cap. Thanks

    I have tried again but it appears that the filter would not go in completely no matter how hard I pushes it. The filter has hit a dead wall when it is still half an inch away from reaching the end.

    I wonder if I have got the wrong filter model for my particular refrigerator.

    Or may be the casing has been damaged, though it does not appear so from my visual inspection inside the casing

    Any suggestion

You have to push in hard on the filter. Also the filter rotates clockwise to lock into place. Align the filter in the hole so that the flat tab on the cap is verticle then push in and turn clock wise while turning. Once it starts to recede press in really hard and turn it until the cap tab is horizontal and locks into place.

The brand name of the refrigerator in this video of how to change the filter is not the same as yours but the concept is exactly the same.

Some of them can be a bit stubborn but just press in hard before you rotate the cap to the horizontal position.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

    You can add a bit of petrolium jelly on the attachment point if it is an exact filter replacement. Compare the heads of the filter old and new and make sure the recessed locking grooves are the same. If they are then lubricate the heat.. pressin gently until you feel it start to recede then press hard pushing in and turn it until it locks by rotating 90 degrees.

    Unless you have the wrong filter this should work.

    I just looked at the number you have for the filter. You have the wrong filter 4396508 will not fit into the base plate mount and is not for your model the number. You need is filter no. 4396510. They are not inter-changeable.

We never received a manual and now need to replace the water filter. model no. ASD2522WRW03 - ser. no. S01831393. also how do we order a replacement manual

The direct link to the manual from Amana is . If the direct link doesn't work, start here: . The manual is also available at Manage My Life: .

The filter you need is T2RFWG2 and P2RFWG2 (part number 4396841) . The filter is in the base grill on the freezer side of the side by side. There is a cap over the filter. You need to push the release button on the cap to remove the cap and filter. Save the cap and put it on the new filter before replacing the filter. If you replace the cap, you can use the water and ice dispenser without the filter.

If you want a printed copy of the manual, you can order it from Sears Parts Direct. They also have the filter. See . The manual is part 1 ($5.99) and the filter is part 30 ($54.98). The filter is also available from for $37. Amana sells the filter here: for $40. If you go here: , you can order several filters at once.

I hope this helps.

What is the model number for the water filter for the KitchenAid #KSRG25FKSS16 refrigeator and where is it found in the refrigerator? thank you.

Hello pssutherland,

I understand that you need to locate the water filter on your KitchenAid fridge. The water filter is located at the bottom of the fridge in the grill. There is a eject button that you will need to press next to the water filter in order to get it to release.
1. Press the eject button
2. pull the filter straight out
3. Remove the cap by turning it clockwise (you will need to install this on the new one)
4. Reinstall the cap on the new filter
5. Push the filter in until the eject button pops back out.
6. Purge the system run three full glass of water thru the water dispencer and throw away.
7. You are done

Thank you for choosing

Renting a house without manual for a kitchenaid

The filter has a T handle on the front of it twist it to the left a quarter turn and pull it the handle on the front end of the old filter it slides off and goes back on the new one.reverse the process to install the new one.
Once installed use a large wide mouth glass to bleed the air out of the system and fill the new filter with water,but hold the glass up close to the spigot because the air pushes the water out fast and it has a tendency to splatter.
