Where is the water filter on a Kenmore side-by-side?
The water filter is located on the front panel down near the floor as shown in the photos. Push the release button located just to the left of the water filter grille cap, this will release the filter. Remove the grille cap from the filter by twisting it counterclockwise.
Failing to change your fridge's water filter can cause scaling and deposit buildup in the water and ice machine, which can seriously damage your fridge. This buildup tends to slow down the system, causing low flow, and negatively affects the flavor of your water.
Kenmore models always have a 3 digit prefix such as 110 or 665, then a period, then more numbers. Next, look for an aluminum tag--or a silver or white adhesive label. The model number may be printed or stamped onto the tag and it may be written in two different type sizes or styles.
Kenmore fridges either have a filter inside the fridge near the top of the machine, or they have the filter on the bottom underneath the doors. Both types of filter require a minimal amount of work, so just be sure you have a replacement filter that fits your fridge model!
After changing the water filter, reset the status. Press and hold the "WATER FILTER" button for 3 seconds. When the system is reset, the water filter icon will return to its BLUE color and the words “Replace Filter” will disappear from the display.
The air filter # ADQ73214404 is located in the back of the fridge section at the top, on the duct assembly. This filter helps prevent stale odors from developing inside the cabinet. After replacing the filter, push and hold the air filter button for 3 seconds, to reset the sensor.
If you detect an odor in the water, or it takes on an unpleasant taste, it's most likely time to replace your water filter. There could also be a gradual decrease in water pressure, which signals the need for a new one.
The water filter might be not fitted properly on the filter housing. If the water filter is not fitted properly, water may leak from the filter. Remove and reinstall the filter to ensure that it is fitted properly.
Use a flat screw driver to pop off the side plastic cover. This will expose a screw that holds the housing in place. Remove that and then there is an opening near the bottom that you can fit your finger into. Push up on the plastic connector that the water filter seats into while also pushing the water filter in.
