Ice maker does not make ice could the water filter be clogged? Filter hasn't been changed in about a year.
Answer Hello Tim. Hello Tim. Yes, a bad filter could cause issues with it. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
What is the model number for whirpool filter W10295370?
Answer Hello Cilotaire. There is a list of models at the bottom of the parts page this part will fit.
I can not remove my water filter. I have taken off white cap and even the front grill. I turn, push, pull... nothing. Any suggestions on getting it out?
To remove the water filter, there is a button on the side of the housing. You will need to push this button and the filter will pop out. If when you push the button the filter does not pop out then you may need to get ahold of the filter with channel locks while pushing in on the button pull out on the filter.
Water filter whirlpool 4396710 was dry when auto reminder went off. We remember past used filters had water inside when we removed them. How can we tell if filter is actually "filtering" the water. The water seems to taste fine but maybe it just tastes better than tap because it is cold. Can something be clogged preventing water from going through? How can we check this? Thanks for your help.
Answer Hello Barbara,
More than likely if the filter is dry then it did not get pushed in all the way. If the cap was sticking out and not sitting flush this would be the case. When you install the filter you should hear a rush of water going into the filter. You then want to purge the water line with about 3 gallons of water. Just after you start purging there will be break in the water flow due to air in the lines. The water when it is cold will taste different than tap water.
