Thanks. I was able to remove it by using a butter knife to depress the collette and remove the water line.

Where is the filter on my rs2630



Removing and replacing a water filter - inside liner location

Filters situated in the interior liner of the refrigerator compartment of Samsung-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:

  1. Grasp the filter and make a one quarter turn to the left. There should be an indicator line located on the filter bracket cover. The install mark on the filter itself will line up with this indicator line.


  2. Pull down gently on the filter to remove it from the mounting bracket assembly. Be careful to not tip the filter, as water may spill out of it.


  3. Discard the used filter.


  4. Remove the new filter from its packaging, and remove the red plastic cap from filter cartridge.


  5. Apply the appropriate month sticker to the filter to remind yourself to change it again in six months' time.


  6. Line the install mark on the filter up with the indicator line found on the filter bracket cover. Push up on the filter. Turn the filter a quarter turn to the right to lock it in place. The remove mark on the filter should line up with the indicator line of the filter bracket cover.


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.

How do I change the water filter? I can't figure out how to get it out.


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.

When you buy the new filter, it usually comes with an instruction sheet.

How do you get the water filter out of refrigerator so you can replace it


Without knowing your particular model number, I checked and most 25 cu.ft. side by sides have the water filter in the grille. You just push a release button and it pops out. There is a cap on the filter, do not through it away as you will need it on a new filter. Also ensure the O-ring protective covers are removed on the new filter prior to installing. You can run the water dispenser without a filter as well. Here is a link to the PDF for one type of 25 cu. ft. Whirlpool side by side.

Tried new filter. Thought water line frozen. Problem solved by bypassing the water filter. Now that I'm working without filter I will troubleshoot the filter receptacle.

There are 3 types of the PSW26P. They are basically the same when it comes to changing water filters. I do not recommend placing air into the water system, I believe that is what at this point is the problem. After changing water filter there is a period of time that you need to push the dispense water switch to allow for the air that is trapped in filter to purge. One moment I will send links, Sea Breeze

Water leaking from bottom of fridge. Hissing noises coming from inside. Trying to figure out how to disconnect water


There is usually a water cut off , behind the refrig , mounted on the wall , or , a cut off under the sink , connected to the cold water line ( with a small cut off valve ) .
The hissing noise , is usually associated with a hole or cracked water line . You can also try removing the ware filter , to see if the noise stops .
Would need more info , to have an idea where the water line is defective .

The water lines from the filter housing leak at the solenoid and are dripping at the filter. It is a Whirlpool gold series side by side


you should be able to push in the ring around the tube at the same time pull the tube out
cut about 1/4 in off and push it back into the hose clip
unless your line is craked this should work for most drip leaks
