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!
Where can I properly recycle or dispose of the used filters?
Answer Hello Cathy. The used filters can be disposed into your regular garbage. If you are wanting to recycle it, it should have a symbol on it for the correct kind.
I haven't used the water dispenser on my refrigerator in about 6 years but would like to start again. Do I need to clean or purge the lines before I do? If so how?
Answer Amanda, Yes, you would want to "flush" and purge the system before you use it again. Once you're sure you have water to the fill valve connection, install a new filter. Then using a large slender container, dispense 2 or 3 gallons of water through the dispenser. This should flush any debris in the system out and purge any air in the system so the dispenser won't drip after dispensing water. After six years, you'll want to check and make sure there are no leaks or loose connections in the tubing or connectors, before you move thee refrigerator back into position.
I just replaced the filter in my Whirlpool refrigerator, but I forgot to put the cap on and now I cannot eject it. Can you offer some help?
Answer Hello Samantha. You should still be able to press really fast and hard and remove the filter from the housing. The cap does not hold it in place.
