How To: Replace a Whirlpool refrigerator filter

Replace a Whirlpool refrigerator filter

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 kickplate 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.

I Have a question about slow water drip from water dispenser,after changing filter,and creating this drip,when no drip was ever present,until changing water filter out !. Could pressure from water flow change enough to create this new problem.? It still has a slow drip,which was not present with old filter. Very puzzled from this new problem. Any suggestions would be helpful.

thanks, BL
