The water filter cartridge is located in the back upper right corner of the refrigerator compartment. The filter cartridge should be replaced when the replacement indicator light turns red or if the flow of water to the dispenser or icemaker decreases. For refrigerators without an indicator light - replace the filters every 6 months.
Remove old filter cartridge by grasping and turning to the left about 1/2 turn
Fill the replacement filter with water from the tap to allow for better flow immediately after installation
Place the top of the new cartridge up inside the cartridge holder
Slowly turn the filter until the filter cartridge stops. Do not over tighten. As you turn the cartridge it will automatically raise itself into position. The cartridge will move about 1/2 turn
Run water from the dispenser for 3 minutes (about 1-1/2 gallons) to clear the system and prevent sputtering
Press and hold reset water filter button if your fridge has one
