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!

We are having problems with our Whirlpool Stainless Steel refrigerator.
First, when we use the water dispenser, it takes FOREVER to get a glass of water. Is there a way to adjust it so it will fill a glass much quicker?
Second, where it dispenses the water, the red light is always on saying - change filter, even when we just installed a new filter. Could you please tell us what might be causing the problem?
Also...We enjoy using the ice from the ice maker. It was working fine and then it just stopped making ice for no apparent reason. I've checked the ice holding dish and there's no ice in it at all - so nothing is stuck. Would you have an suggestion for that issue as well?
It is a Whirlpool Model GZ25FSRXYYO Refrigerator.
I would appreciate any suggestions you can provide.
Thank you, and have a GREAT day!
Answer Hello Dawn. There is no way of increasing the water from the dispenser. As for the red light, when you replace the filter, you need to press and hold the filter reset button on the dispenser to reset the light. Here is some information to help you repair the icemaker in the unit. 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
How do I find a store in town to purchase the filter and not have to order it?
Answer Patty! We are unable to advise what store would have what part in stock. Sorry!
I have tried to get the filter out by turning it but it does not budge. Can you help?
Answer Hello Babs. The only way to remove the filter from the filter head is by twisting it. Some of these can be tight and the filter head may unsnap from the unit. Just hold the head in one hand and twist the filter to remove it.
I am unable to push filter in so that handle can be turned clockwise..it simply will not go in or turn ..

The easiest way to get the filter to turn in would be to remove the kickplate and turn the filter as it will give better access. If the filter will still not go in then it is either a damaged filter or the filter housing is bad.
