How to Change a Water Filter in a Kenmore Refrigerator
Documentation Download Documentation Download Documentation In order to keep your water and ice dispensers fresh, refrigerators feature filters that remove impurities from the water and ice dispensers. These filters should be replaced every six months. Kenmore refrigerators are either equipped with an internal filter located towards the top of the machine or with an external filter located at the bottom of the machine under the doors. Both types of filters require just a little amount of maintenance; just make sure you choose a replacement filter that is compatible with your refrigerator model.
- 1 Purchase a new filter that is compatible with your refrigerator’s model. The model number of your refrigerator may be found on the inner wall of your refrigerator or in the user manual, if you happen to have one. When purchasing a new filter, make certain that it is compatible with the refrigerator you currently own
- Otherwise, it may not function or fit properly. You may either get a filter from the same manufacturer as your refrigerator or a third-party filter that is compatible with your model.
- It is possible to purchase filters for your refrigerator either online or through a local appliance store. Refrigerator filters are typically priced between $25 and $30 USD.

- French door refrigerators (which have two refrigerator doors and a bottom freezer): In the lowest section of the refrigerator’s door, within the lowest compartment
- Fridge/freezers that are side-by-side (with two full-length doors): For the majority of models, it is located in the upper right corner. Examine the base compartment of some models (such as the Kenmore 5175x series)
- If you don’t notice the filter compartment in any of these locations, look for a little dial near the crisper drawers
- If you don’t see it there, look for it elsewhere.
- s3 To open the filter compartment, push or pull the tab on the side of the container. Look for a button or tab on the end of the cylinder that is closest to your position on the cylinder. Pulling or pushing the tab will open the compartment and show the old filter
- 4 removing the old filter Remove the filter by turning it counterclockwise and pulling it out. Holding the main body of the filter in your hand, turn it counterclockwise to loosen it. In order to remove the filter, rotate it by a quarter turn and carefully pull it toward you to remove it. This is because, if your filter does not twist when rotated, it may just pull straight out of the container when you attempt to rotate it. Once the filter has been removed, it may either be thrown away or recycled.

To loosen the filter, grab the main body of the filter and rotate it counterclockwise. In order to remove the filter, rotate it a quarter turn and carefully pull it toward you. This is because, if your filter does not twist when rotated, it may just pull straight out of the container when you try to rotate it. The filter can be disposed of or recycled after it has been removed.
- Removing the replacement filter’s seal from its end is step 5. To begin, remove the replacement filter from its packaging and locate the cap on one end. Remove the lid from the new filter in order to reveal the port that connects to your refrigerator. Some filters may additionally include a piece of foil covering the end, which is common in the industry. If your filter is covered with foil, make sure to remove it before reinstalling the filter in your refrigerator
- 6 Insert the replacement filter into the container by screwing it in clockwise. Feed the filter end with the port into the hole in the filter compartment by inserting it through the hole in the filter compartment. Maintain the horizontal position of the filter so that you can simply align the threads to screw it in. To secure the filter in place, rotate the filter clockwise by a quarter turn to the right. Once the filter has been installed, shut the chamber to ensure that it is completely sealed.
- It is sufficient to just press the port into the end of the filter to secure it if your filter does not have a screw to secure it.
- 7 If the light above the “Filter Reset” button is yellow or red, press the “Filter Reset” button. When you change your water filter, the “Filter Reset” button near your water dispenser may illuminate in yellow or red to indicate that it has been reset. Once the new filter has been installed, press and hold the button for about 3 seconds to ensure that your refrigerator recognizes the new filter. Either the light will go out or it will change color to a blue or green tint
- If the buttons are not visible on the outside of your refrigerator door, they may be on the inside. If the light does not change colors after you remove the filter, try pulling it out and putting it back in again.
- 1 Purchase a new filter that is compatible with your refrigerator’s model. Check the model number on your refrigerator, which may be found either in the user manual or on the interior of the refrigerator. Make a note of the model number so you don’t lose track of it. If your fridge has a filter, look for one that is compatible with it online or at appliance stores
- Otherwise, the filter will not fit or function correctly.
- As long as the filter is compatible with your refrigerator, you may use a Kenmore filter or purchase one from a third-party vendor. Filters are around $30 USD apiece, however you may be able to save money by purchasing numerous filters at the same time.
- 2 To remove the fridge from the cabinet, turn the dial on the bottom of the cabinet counterclockwise. Locate the filter dial that is related to the grill that is located underneath your refrigerator doors. Then, using a quarter-turn counterclockwise, disengage the dial from its lock position and immediately pull the filter straight out of your refrigerator until it is entirely gone
- Set down a little hand towel beneath the filter chamber in case any water leaks out when you remove the filter
- Helpful hint: If the filter does not twist in either direction, release the filter by pushing the button located beside the dial. Three things must be done: 1 press the button to detach the filter and 2 pull it out to remove it. Slide the dial handle onto the new filter by squeezing the handle. Check which direction the dial slides on the end of your old filter glides, and then push or pull the dial perpendicular to the filter to remove it from the filter. Make sure that the edges of your new filter’s end are aligned with the slot on the dial and then slide it into place until it is secure. When you’re through with it, you may either toss it away or recycle it.
- Pulling the dial until it pops off the filter may be necessary if the dial won’t fall off on its own. Then, at the end of the new filter, turn the slider to the right.
- 4 Reinstall the new filter in your refrigerator and turn the knob clockwise. Using your fingers, gently push the end of the filter that attaches to your refrigerator into the filter compartment until it snaps into place. To put the dial back in its original position, rotate it one quarter turn clockwise. The water dispenser and ice cube maker in your refrigerator will be operational once the filter has been replaced.
- If you removed the old filter by pressing a button, push the new filter in until it fixes itself in place.
- 5 If the “Filter Reset” button shows an orange or yellow light, press and hold it for three seconds. If your refrigerator detects that the filter has been replaced, it may display an error message. The “Filter Reset” button should be located near your water dispenser. Press and hold the button for 3 seconds to reset the filter. The light will transition from yellow or orange to green or blue as the day progresses.
- Modern refrigerators may contain a touchscreen menu that may be used to reset the filter. If the light does not change colors after you remove the filter, try removing it and re-installing it.

Written by Todd Fratzelon Kitchens,Maintanence UPDATE: A large number of comments have been submitted in the comment area from people who have reported having problems with their water dispensers after installing the new water filter. Please see below for more information. For example, the following are some options for troubleshooting the issue:
- Make careful to REMOVE the filter end caps from the old water filter before installing the new one. In this case, these are two red pieces of plastic that cover the two ports on the end of the water filter
- The instructions are extremely detailed on how to purge air from the system after the filter replacement has been completed
- Once the new filter has been installed, it is necessary to purge the water from the dispenser with a big container. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions, which are as follows: Hold the water dispenser lever down for 5 seconds with a sturdy container, then release the lever for another 5 seconds with the same robust container. Continue until the water starts to flow. Continue pressing and releasing the dispenser lever for an additional 2 minutes after the water starts to flow (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off). This will remove any air that has accumulated in the filter and water dispensing system. In some cases, additional flushing may be required
- If none of these methods are successful, it is possible that you have one of the following problems: a faulty water valve, a frozen water line (the water line actually travels from the bottom of the refrigerator up through the freezer door! ), or faulty electronic components. These are the kind of scenarios in which a skilled repairman is required
Kenmore Elite Water Filter Replacement
I made a post the other day on replacing the water filters in our Kenmore Elite refrigerator, which we recently purchased. In this post, I’d like to demonstrate how simple it is to change the water filter in your refrigerator (quite a few refrigerators now use these water filters that are located on the bottom front panel of the unit).
These water filters are available for purchase on Amazon and Sears. It takes less than 5 minutes to replace this water filter, and the greatest thing is that you don’t need any special equipment to accomplish it.
How To Replace Kenmore Refrigerator Water Filter
- Remove the new water filter from its packaging and remove the two red shipping caps that are attached to the end of the filter
- As seen in the photographs, the water filter is positioned on the front panel, near the floor. Release the water filter by pressing the release button, which is situated close to the left of the water filter. Remove the grille cap, which will allow the filter to be released. Counterclockwise twisting the grille cap away from the filter will do this. Ensure that the grille cap on the new water filter is securely fastened. Organize your refrigerator by placing the new water filter in it and ensuring sure all of its phrases are facing the right way up
- To install the water filter, push it in until it snaps into place.
Flush Water After Installing New Filter

This particular water filter claims to reduce:
- Cysts and turbidity – both of which are associated with gastrointestinal issues
- Chlorine – improves the flavor and odor of water, resulting in better-tasting water
- For cleaner water, sediment is used. o-Dichlorobenzene – has been related to an increased risk of liver, renal, and circulatory system issues. Benzene has been associated with an increased risk of cancer and anemia.
I seriously doubt that any of our town’s water systems are seeing any trouble with these concerns. However, we have noticed that the water tastes significantly better once it has been filtered, therefore we will continue to change the filter on a regular basis.
How to Replace a Water Filter on a Sears Kenmore Fridge
A water filter is required for a Sears Kenmore refrigerator in order to prevent pollutants from entering the ice maker and water dispenser. The filter eliminates the taste and odor of chlorine, as well as lead, asbestos, and mercury.

How To Change The Water Filter In Your Kenmore Refrigerator — Step By Step Guide
When working on your device, it is a good idea to cut off the power supply to the unit. Accidents, such as electric shocks, are less likely to occur as a result.
Step 2: Turn Off Water Supply
You’ll want to switch off the water supply to the refrigerator before you make a change since you don’t want water to pour all over the place when you’re changing. Even after you have turned off the water supply, you should keep a towel nearby to soak up any leftover water in the filter and avoid a sloppy situation.
Step 3: Remove Old Water Filter
To remove the old water filter, grasp the filter knob (or dial) and twist it in a counterclockwise manner to dislodge it from the filter cartridge, then repeat the process. Remove the old filter when it has been freed. Please keep in mind that in some refrigerator models, you must first press the “Eject” button or pull a tab to access the filter chamber before turning the knob and drawing the filter out. When it comes to filters, this is more prevalent for those that are positioned in the refrigerator’s inside.
Once the old filter has been removed, unscrew the knob handle on the top of the filter and throw it away.
Step 4: Install New Filter
Remove the packing from the new water filter, as well as the protective cap or seal that is located at the end of the water filter. Then, using the knob handle that was previously taken from the old filter, slip it onto the new filter. In order to secure it in place, put the filter cartridge into the filter cartridge and spin the knob in a clockwise manner to lock it in place. It is important to remember to close the compartment latch if there is one on the inner filter compartment. Another thing to consider is whether or not you require a knob handle if your filter is a “push-in” style.
Step 5: Turn On Power Supply And Reset The Filter Button
Remove the packing from the new water filter, as well as the protective cap or seal that is located at the end of the filter’s housing. Afterwards, slip the knob handle from the old filter onto the new one, which has been removed from the old filter. In order to secure it in place, put the filter cartridge into the filter cartridge and crank the knob in a clockwise manner to tighten it down.
It’s important to remember to close the compartment latch if there is one on the inner filter compartment. If your filter is a “push-in” kind, you may not require a knob handle; instead, just put the filter into its port and spin the knob handle in a clockwise direction to operate.
Step 6: Turn On Water Supply And Purge New Filter
Remove the packing from the new water filter, as well as the protective cap or seal that is located at the end of the filter’s length. Then, using the knob handle that was removed from the old filter, slip it onto the new filter. In order to secure it in place, put the filter cartridge into the filter cartridge and turn the knob in a clockwise manner. If your vehicle has an internal filter compartment, make sure you close the compartment lock if it has one. If your filter is a “push-in” style, you may not require a knob handle; instead, just insert the filter into its port and turn the filter in a clockwise direction.

The carbon block filter is the most often encountered type of refrigerator filter. Carbon block filters are most commonly found in upright forms, as opposed to horizontal variants. They are made out of a huge chunk of activated charcoal that is used to absorb smells and particles from the air around them. To store the charcoal, it is placed in a frame that is positioned right above the evaporator coil. As the air goes through the filter, the charcoal absorbs the smells and particles that are present in the air.
The electronic filter is another form of refrigerator filter that is widely used. Electronic filters are most commonly seen in side-by-side variants since they save space. Each one is comprised of a tiny fan that circulates filtered air through a series of sensors. Temperature and humidity sensors are used to monitor changes in the environment. The fan adjusts its speed and direction in response to these readings. Vents at the top of the refrigerator allow fresh air to enter from the outside while stale air is forced out through vents towards the bottom of the refrigerator.
They do, however, require frequent maintenance in order to function properly.
