The filter is behind a cover near the middle of the bottom grill of the refrigerator. See the cabinet parts diagram for the GT1SHWXPB01 available at Sears Parts Diagram: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/laqy1c91lc-001198/whirlpool-gt1shwxpb01-top-mount-refrigerator-parts . (The final numbers indicate a color designation of the unit.) The cover is part 7 and the filter is part 4. The filter itself requires a quarter-turn (counter-clockwise) to remove and then replace (clockwise). I believe the cover also gets turned to remove.

I hope this helps.

Red light on to replace water filter, how to do this?

Knowing just who made your Kenmore refrigerator may some day be important because Kenmore does not make the brands they sell. I am going to try to get you as many different ways the water filter can be changed as I can but if you can you locate the model number of your Kenmore it may make things much easier should you need parts or a manual some day. The number should look like this 521.345678 and located around the inside of the fresh food section door.

How to change water filter?

Hi

Find the indication light, located at the top of the Whirlpool refrigerator just inside the door. This tells you when to change your water filter. A green light indicates the filter is good and a red light indicates you need to change the filter.

Find the filter knob. It is usually located at the base of the refrigerator in the kick plate or grill.

Turn the knob a quarter turn to the left to unlock the filter. Pull out and remove the old filter.

Add a new filter and push in. Turn the filter a quarter turn to the right to secure it in place.

Reset your filter indication light inside the refrigerator. Press down and release the switch five times within 10 seconds. The filter indication light should then turn green.
Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

We have a Amana refrigerator Model # SXD22SW2 and need to replace the water filter. We don't have the owner's/service manual for the refrigerator and I have looked everywhere on-line, including the Amana...

Removing a water filter from the base grill of your Amana 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.

Try to find out if this unit needs a filter for the icemaker

Your refrigerator will not accept nor was designed to use a whirlpool water filter. No a filter is not required. Yes an in line filter can be installed prior to the connection at the inlet valve if you desire.

Whirlpool icemaker not working

the refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser. the valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself.
another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. the ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees.
