We have a side by side refrigerator that is about 5 years old. We change out the filter every six months. The last time my husband changed the filter it seemed to be alright and then a couple hours later it made a loud popping nose and the water was coming out all over the floor. We left the filter off for a few days and purchased another filter. Again the filter popped off but we were outside and it flooded the kitchen. Luckily I came inside before it got to the carpet. Again we kept the filter off for a couple months. We put it on again and for days it has been fine. Last night my husband was in the living room and again the loud noise and water happened again. Why is this happening?

My filter does not mark a whooshing sound when installed and the water still tastes the same when I do not use a filter.. I push it in firmly but does not feel like it locks in place.

I replaced the water filter 4396841 on my Whirlpool refrigerator and the eject button did not pop out after I heard the click sound after inserting the filter. Water comes out the dispenser but I think it is water that is not going through the filter. I removed the filter after some time "of use" to check if the filter had any signs of having had water through it and it seems that no water has moved through the filter since it is completely dry and not heavy with water as previous filters have been when I have replaced them. I do not know if the problem is the eject button, the filter itself or what. What should Ido?

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?

I don't see a water filter in my refrigerator. I checked inside, outside at the back and behind the bottom/toe grill. Is there a way to add a filter in this refrigerator? If yes, then how/where do I connect the new filter and which filter should I use? Thanks!

I have a Whirlpool size by side. I removed the old filter and run it without filter (we have excellent water quality here). The manual says to replace the cap but it just kind of sits in there loose with no filter to screw on to. Is this normal for this model or am I doing something wrong? Thanks!

We have a Kitchen Aid refrigerator we purchased new 7 years ago and we have consistently changed the water filter wit a PUR 4396841 filter. No problems. This time the first large cup of water was gray (like charcoal ?) then the water has been clear since. Is there a problem? Also the box appeared to not have been opened but there was not date stickers to apply and no instruction sheet enclosed. Should we be concerned with the water or filter?

The water filter I pulled out of my Whirlpool side by side fridge, which came with the house when I bought it, is the Pur 4396841. Home Depot only has the Maytag W10193691 Fast-Fill Water Filter for Select Side-by-Side Refrigerators in stock. Are they interchangeable?
