Would the ice maker stopped making ice if the filter needs replaced?
Answer Hi Anna, the manufacturer recommends that your place the water filter every six months depending on use. The filter would affect more the dispense rather than the icemaker. If the icemaker is not getting any water you migth have a defective water valve W10270395. Hope this helps!

Would like to know where the water filter is located on this refrigerator. I have a light that comes on and tells me to change it.
Answer Hello Bill. Open the fresh food doors and look up at the top right corner and you will see a cover that needs to be released. You will release the cover and then you will see the filter in the unit. You twist the filter to remove it from the unit.
Do we need to shut water off to replace filter? It says to turn counter clockwise but cannot do it, cannot seem to remove it.
Answer Hello Don,
You do not have to turn water off to replace the water filter but is recommended by the manufacturer in case there is a problem with the water filter head. The water filter does just turn counter clockwise. Try to turn water off and release pressure by pushing dispenser. Then try to take out.
