After connecting the refrigerator to a water source or replacing
the water filter, flush the water system. Use a sturdy container
to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds,
then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to
flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and
releasing the dispenser lever (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off)
until a total of 4 gal. (15 L) has been dispensed. This will flush
air from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare
the water filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in
some households. As air is cleared from the system, water
may spurt out of the dispenser.

Water Dispenser
IMPORTANT: Dispense enough water every week to maintain a
fresh supply.
The default display unit for water dispensing is ounces. The units
can be changed to cups or liters.
To Dispense
Water (Standard):
1. Press a sturdy glass against the water dispenser pad OR
place the glass below the water dispenser and press the water
dispenser button.
NOTE: Most coffee cups (commonly 4 to 6 oz [118 to 177 mL]
per cup) are not the same size as a measuring cup (8 oz
[237 mL]). You may need to adjust the volume to avoid
overfilling coffee cups. The Measured Fill
feature is based on standard household water pressure of
60 psi. Users with low water pressure may need to adjust the
volume selection accordingly.
To dispense water, press a sturdy glass against the water
dispenser pad OR place the glass below the water dispenser
and press the water dispenser button.
NOTE: While dispensing water, the digital display will count
down how much water remains to be dispensed, according to
the volume you selected. The flow of water will automatically
stop once the desired volume has been dispensed.
To stop dispensing before the selected volume has been
dispensed, remove the glass from the dispenser pad OR press
the water dispenser button a second time.
NOTE: If you stop dispensing before the desired volume has
been dispensed, the digital display will continue to show how
much water remains to be dispensed. The display will exit the
Measured Fill screen after 15 seconds of inactivity.
To select a new volume or select the same volume again, you
must first finish dispensing the selected volume, or turn off the
Measured Fill feature and then turn it back on.
