For clean, fresh tasting water, Whirlpool recommends replacing your water filter every 6 monthsƗ. It may need to be changed more frequently depending on your usage and water quality.

Your water filter is not self-cleaning. Resetting your indicator light will not reset your filter or clean it. Only regular replacement of your water filter will ensure your family has a continuous supply of clean filtered water.
