About the water filter cartridge.

Water filter cartridge

The water filter cartridge is located in the back upper right corner of
the refrigerator compartment.
When to replace the filter on models
with a replacement indicator light
There is a replacement indicator light for the water filter cartridge
on the dispenser. This light will turn orange to
tell you that you need to replace the filter soon.
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.
When to replace the filter on models
without a replacement indicator light
The filter cartridge should be replaced every six months
or earlier if the flow of water to the dispenser or
icemaker decreases.
Removing the filter cartridge
If you are replacing the cartridge, first remove the old one
by slowly turning it to the left. Do not pull down on the cartridge. A
small amount of water may drip down.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk associated with property damage due
to water leakage, read and follow instructions before installation
