I was wondering if your filter would fit this fridge model? It's made in March of 2012, and has been discontinued since then. I'm using it since it's provided by the management.
Answer Bob, This filter 4396508 will fit and operate in most (90 %) of whirlpool refrigerators with a filter system located at the front of the machine, in the kick plate area. Of course, a correct model number would be a big assist and we could be more assured what you need for your particular refrigerator.
to replace water filter in fridge,must you first turn off watrer to ease pressure?
Per the owners manual the manufacturer suggest to turn off the water before replacing the filter. Although it is not necessary to turn it off there is always a chance that the water filter housing could be bad and spray water everywhere.
