Will this work for my whirlpool? I use filter # 4396508. Thank you for your help!!!
Answer Hello Rona! If you do not want to use the filter, remove the filter and replace the cap. The cap is part number 2186494B. Thanks.

Is there a filter bypass plug for this model?
Answer Erma, the manufacturer does not offer a bypass. You'll simply remove the filter and replace the cap. Thanks!
Want to bypass water filtration system since I have a reverse osmosis system in kitchen - what parts are needed?
Answer Hello Lisa! Per the manufacture there is no bypass plug. You will need to remove the existing filter and replace the filter cap. Thanks!
I have an RO system installed and connected to the fridge line. I want to bypass the fridge's filter because it's unnecessary and expensive. We don't use the cool water, only use it mainly for ice-making. What is the best way for bypassing the filter without complications? Thanks in advance.
Answer Sam, You're on target. You don't really need a "bypass" plug, just remove the filter and close the door. The pressure of the water supply coming out of a reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the refrigerator needs to be between 30 and 120 psi (207 and
827 kPa). If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa). If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa): ¦ If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may further reduce the water pressure when used in conjunction with a reverse osmosis system. Remove the water filter. See “Water Filtration System” in the User Instructions, User Guide, or Use & Care Guide.
Do I need a By-pass plug for this model? I just put in a water filtration system that feeds the refrigerator also.
Answer Hello Jill,
This design does not require a bypass plug. If you remove the filter, the unit should dispense water normally.
