Those grills can be a bugger...
They usually are just a clip on either end... to get the clip to release you need to get a firm grip and then give a good yank straight away from the fridge...that will release the clip. By the same token to re-engage the clip it may take a good rap with you hand on each end to get the clip to hold again...

    Thanks for your help heatman101. Taking the grill off and on was really a pain in the ***. Whirlpool should get their act in order and provide pictures in their instruction manual.

SOURCE: removing refridgerator grill

Look at the top slots in the grille. If there is a slight cutaway near the ends that is where the release tabs should be. If no release tabs, try a gentle lifting pressure in the grille as you try to pull away. They are made to be removed by the user. Check the manual if you can find it. If no luck, reply, I'll see if I can find one.

SOURCE: whirlpool side by side refrigerator laeking form

It sounds as though your filter which screws into the front at the bottom kick plate is bad . The rubber seals on them tend to go bad causing them to leak into the drip pan and causing it to overflow . This will appear to be a leak when in actuality , all you need to do is replace the filter .

How to level a Whirlpool Conquest refrigerator 2009 after moving it from a different house? The left front now wobbles.

To level your refrigerator:

Remove toe grill. Use flat-blade screwdriver or 3/8" socket wrench to adjust the front rollers. Or Turn the leveling leg clockwise to raise the side of the refrigerator or counterclockwise to lower it. Which ever applies to your unit.

Note: Having someone push backward against the top of the refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling legs. This makes it easier to adjust the legs.

Putting in the new water filter to the Whirlpool gold fridge that goes in at the bottom.

Removing a water filter from the base grill of your Whirlpool brand refrigerator:

Removing and replacing a water filter - base grill location

Filters situated in the base grill (below the freezer compartment) of Whirlpool-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these two steps:
  1. Grasp the filter's end and make a one-quarter turn to the left.
  2. Pull the filter straight out.
To replace with a new filter, repeat these two steps in the opposite order, making sure to first remove the red cap from the filter. Proceed by pushing the filter straight into the slot, and then giving it a one quarter turn to the right.
Note: Replacing this type of filter is quick - there is no need to unplug your refrigerator when replacing it. Also, this filter should be replaced every six months.

My whirlpool fridge is hot, took the cover off of the coils inside freezer, look ok. Took back cover off of the back and the compressor is hot

Hi jason;
Shall take it that you have a Side by Side setup? If so with rear cover off, when you start it does the cooling fan come on beside compressor? Also remove front grille and clean front condensor coils, full dust and hair all problems can happen. (like blocking of car radiator). Try these if fan doesn't work, replace.

Water filter won't come out when I push the button

Push button? It should be a turn to the left to remove if it is a whirpool located at the bottom. These are twist out not push to release. The only push to releases are made by electrolux.

Whirlpool Gold. Front grill won't come off.

when you remove this grill it feels as if it will break before coming off. the trick for removing it is to grab in the center near the bottom and then pull up and out. it will flex alot and feel as if it might break put it will pull loose from the clips on either end. open the doors when removing it to give you plenty of room.
to reinstall line the 2 "c" clips on eihter end with the with the reciever clips on the unit then push into the clips. 
the grill will not break if done this way. message me back if you have nay further questions thanks Peyton
