I recently moved into a new house and the previous owner left the refrigerator. I noticed that there is mold around the water/ice dispenser area. Why would this happen? What is the best way to clean this area?
The best way to clean the area is to pull the dispenser cover off and use a vinegar/water solution to clean. This area is a high moisture area which would be the reason that it would have a lot of mildew. To remove the front cover you will first remove the drip tray. At the bottom of the trim there will be 2 holes that you use a flat blade screwdriver to slide into it and pop the front cover off. Remove the cover and there will be a bracket that you would take loose and flip it up and tape it off to hold it up so that you can clean inside the area.
By opening the filter door my filter will not come out? thanks
It sounds like the filter got stuck in position and you will need to try to get ahold of the filter to kind of pry it out or pull it out.
I have a Whirlpool ED2VHEXVQ01 Fridge and thee is no water shut off valve on it.
Do I need to shut water off on the model ED2VHEXVQ01?
Answer Hello Harry! The model number you provided does not require you to shut the water off when replacing the water filter. However your water supply source should have a way to shut the water off coming into the unit. Thanks!
