*Tip: It is normal for a small amount of water to drip when replacing your filter. Have a dish towel handy when changing your filter.
1. Locate the old filter and turn it counterclockwise (to the right) until the cartridge stops moving. Discard the old filter. 2. Push the new filter into the filter head. 3. Turn the new filter clockwise (to the left) until the cartridge stops. 4. Discard the first 3 gallons of water that are pushed through the filter to ensure water quality. 5. Reset your change filter indicator if applicable.
*Tip: On almost all refrigerators, your reminder light is simply a 6 month timer, it doesn't measure water volume or tell you if your filter is clogged. Your filter may last for more or less time depending on your local water quality and how much water you use. If your water flow is reduced, or it begins to taste like tap water, you know it is time to change your filter.

Not a good taste to the filtered water. Upon removal for replacement of alternate filter, and a subsequent attempt to install again, it would not install. Later found that there is just enough difference with OEM filter to prevent installation. Not sure how I managed to get it in the first time when it wouldn't install again after that. Perhaps taste was affected by poor installation fit.
Didn't want to pay hugely inflated prices for the Whirlpool brand, even though it has been working well for years. So I decided to try the less expensive off-brand. Bad decision. It fit just fine, but after a month of use the water is starting to taste bad.
Not sure if there is another generic brand to try, or if I have to pay a king's ransom for the Whirlpool brand.
Well, I haven't chemically tested to see if it does what it claims, but it fit right in without a hitch and is giving me clear, nice tasting water.
