When should you replace your water filter?
It is recommended that the water filter be replaced every 6 months, when the indicator light comes on, or as needed. A clogged or incorrectly installed water filter will reduce the water flow to the ice maker and dispenser, which could result in small ice cubes, low ice production and/or longer dispensing times. If the filter is clogged and you are not able to immediately replace it, leave the filter out so the water system is in bypass mode. With the filter removed, the water system will continue to operate, bypassing the filter, and the clogged filter will not cause slow water dispensing or low ice production. However, in order to have filtered water, you will need to install a new filter.
NOTE: One or two drops of water immediately after dispensing is normal. It may be necessary to hold the container under the dispenser for 2 to 3 seconds after releasing the dispenser button.

The water filter should be changed when the filter status light/indicator (if applicable) located on the temperature control panel alerts that a filter change is needed. Consult your Use and Care Guide for additional instructions and location of your particular filter status light/indicator.
