How to Change the Water Filter on a Whirlpool Refrigerator Model ED5VHEXVB01

David Clair

The Whirlpool ED5VHEXVB01 is a side-by-side refrigerator and freezer with an ice maker and water dispenser. The water that leads into the refrigerator passes through a filter to help keep it free of debris. Whirlpool recommends replacing the filter at least once every six months or when the filter light illuminates on the control panel.

Step 1

Locate the filter cap on the front of the base grille. Turn the filter cap counterclockwise until the handle is in a vertical position.

Step 2

Pull the filter straight out of its compartment to remove it.

Step 3

Slide the filter cap off the old filter.

Step 4

Slide the cap onto the end of the new water filter.

Step 5

Slide the filter into the filter compartment. Rotate the filter cap clockwise until the handle is in a horizontal position.
