I have a whole house filter. Can not find a bypass plug for this newer model whirlpool refrigerator with water filter. I removed filter but now it leaks water, Need a plug.
Answer Calvin, I've found model WSF26C3EXF01. The manufacturer does not offer a filter bypass for the given model. Once the filter is removed it is automatically bypassed. If the filter area is leaking you'll need to replace the filter housing, part number W10238123. Thanks!
Is there a Filter Bypass plug for this model?
Answer Hello Chris. No By Pass Required Remove Filter.
I have a Whirlpool ED2KVECVQ01. Do I need a bypass to stop using the filters? I have a whole house filter.
Answer Hello Tammy,
This unit does not require a bypass plug. It will dispense water without a filter in place. If it leaks, the water filter housing W10121138 has failed.
Do I need a bypass plug for not using water filter? Thanks very much!
Answer Hello Peter,
The bypass plug you will need so you can use your water dispenser is part number 12664501.
I want to use the bypass filter since the water coming into my refrigerator is already filtered. Will I be able to use the ice maker and water dispenser? If so, how can I reset the filter so it doesn't tell me to put a new one in?
Answer Hello Cindy,
You can certainly use the water dispense and icemaker with the bypass plug installed but, unfortunately, the unit will still count down time to notify of filter change time. You will just have to reset it when it indicates it is time to change the filter.
