When you replace a water filter on your Maytag fridge you sometimes need to reset the fridge control panel so you will no longer see the REPLACE WATER FILTER indicator. Sometimes the REPLACE light will turn off after replacing the water filter. If not, here are the easy steps to take to get the REPLACE light to turn OFF.

4. Locate the WATER FILTER key/button on the control panel of your Maytag refrigerator.

5. Press the FILTER button on the display panel.

6. Continue depressing the FILTER button for 3 to 5 seconds.

7. Release the FILTER button and check the control panel.

  1. My Maytag fridge freezer model GZ2626GEKB
    S/n 10001169ET
    The water and water filter light are clicking on and off periodically.
    I have switched the unit off for a few minutes
    Refixed the water filter.
    But after a while the clicking starts
    Also separately when get water ice is also dispensed into the ice holder.
    Any ideas?
