Where is the eject button for a kitchenaid superba water filter?

I have found the water filter in the grille of this side-by-side refrigerator, but can't pull it out, and the manual says there is an eject button. I don't see anything besides the filter head behind the grille.

I went through this same thing! You probably can't find an eject button because there isn't one on the model that you have. It probably isn't turning because it's just stuck and you have to just have confidence that you're not breaking it and force it to the left - all of a sudden, it will "pop" and turn easily.

Here is a great link to show you the different types of Kitchen Aid refrigerator filters - which kind has an eject button and which doesn't:

http://kitchenaid.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/149

I also found a great (and short!) video from Kitchen Aid that really helped me see how to do it. Try this one - I thought it was the best:

http://www.kitchenaid.com/content.jsp?sectionId=852

Finally knowing there wasn't an "eject" button saved me many hours of looking, and the tip about using the handles of the plyers worked great.

It is really discouraging to think you can't just screw out a water filter, but it isn't you. The directions are misleading - they don't match what you're seeing, and it doesn't twist out easily - it has to be forced....and THEN it twists out easily.

Hope this helps. It worked for me when I'd completely given up.

Best of luck!

I tried all the solutions listed to no avail and didn't want to break my refrigerator trying to pry it out. As I was replacing the filter and thus didn't need to keep the old filter, I drilled a small hole, threaded a screw and pulled out the stubborn filter with pliers.

What is the model number for the water filter for the KitchenAid #KSRG25FKSS16 refrigeator and where is it found in the refrigerator? thank you.


Hello pssutherland,

I understand that you need to locate the water filter on your KitchenAid fridge. The water filter is located at the bottom of the fridge in the grill. There is a eject button that you will need to press next to the water filter in order to get it to release.
1. Press the eject button
2. pull the filter straight out
3. Remove the cap by turning it clockwise (you will need to install this on the new one)
4. Reinstall the cap on the new filter
5. Push the filter in until the eject button pops back out.
6. Purge the system run three full glass of water thru the water dispencer and throw away.
7. You are done

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

How to change the water filter on my Kitchenaid Superba fridge?


The details are on page 6 of this manual or I have pasted them below.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%202306982.pdf

Changing the Water Filter
1. Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.
2. Pull the filter straight out.
3. Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove it from the filter.
IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your
refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.
4. Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.
NOTE: You can run the dispenser without a filter. Your water
will not be filtered. Simply insert the cap all of the way into the
base grille and rotate the cap until it is firmly in place.
5. Remove the protective covers from the O-rings.
6. Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop
back out when the filter is fully engaged.
7. Flush the water system. See “Water and Ice Dispensers.”

How do I replace kitchenaid superba KSCS25FKSS00 water filter. When I try to turn counterclockwise with my hand it doesnt budge? I have never done it in 5 years


Here are some instructions for you.. it is important to press the ejection button and pull the filter straight out before turning counter clockwise..

1.Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille. 2. Pull the filter straight out.
3.Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove it from the filter. IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter. 4.Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and turn the cap until it snaps into place.

I hope this information helps you with your filter. They suggest you replace the filter every 6 months. It could help the quality of your water and if you make a lot of ice..

Water filter does not eject when button is depressed.


I just had the same ting happen to me. You need to leave the cover to the water filter (it is the black plastic cover that is part of the grill) is still connected to the filter. After depressing the eject button, this cap helps to pull out the filter. DON'T throw away this very important part, other wise it is impossible to get the filter out. Once you eject the filter, some water will leak from the filter. Just put it in the sink to drain for a while.
