Proper Disposal of
Your Old Refrigerator
WARNING
Before You Throw Away Your Old Refrigerator or Freezer:
I
Take off the doors.
I
Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily
climb inside.
Suffocation Hazard
Remove doors from your old refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in death or brain damage.
IMPORTANT: Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems
of the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous
– even if they will sit for “just a few days.” If you are getting rid of
your old refrigerator, please follow these instructions to help
prevent accidents.
Important information to know about disposal of
refrigerants:
Dispose of refrigerator in accordance with Federal and Local
regulations. Refrigerants must be evacuated by a licensed,
EPA certified refrigerant technician in accordance with
established procedures.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Unpack the Refrigerator
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Remove the Packaging
I
Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning
on the refrigerator. Rub a small amount of liquid dish soap
over the adhesive with your fingers. Wipe with warm water
and dry.
I
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable
fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These
products can damage the surface of your refrigerator. For
more information, see “Refrigerator Safety.”
I
Dispose of/recycle all packaging materials.
When Moving Your Refrigerator:
Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the refrigerator for
cleaning or service, be sure to cover the floor with
cardboard or hardboard to avoid floor damage. Always pull
the refrigerator straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or
“walk” the refrigerator when trying to move it, as floor
damage could occur.
Clean Before Using
After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside of
your refrigerator before using it. See the cleaning instructions in
“Refrigerator Care.”
Important information to know about glass shelves
and covers:
Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when
they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to
sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping.
Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small,
pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass shelves and covers
are heavy. Use both hands when removing them to avoid
dropping.

Location Requirements
Electrical Requirements
WARNING
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from refrigerator.
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
IMPORTANT: This refrigerator is designed for indoor, household
use only.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, allow for ¹⁄₂"
(1.25 cm) of space on each side and at the top. Allow for 1"
(2.54 cm) of space behind the refrigerator. If your refrigerator has
an ice maker, allow extra space at the back for the water line
connections. When installing your refrigerator next to a fixed wall,
leave 2¹⁄₂" (6.3 cm) minimum on the hinge side (some models
require more) to allow for the door to swing open.
NOTE: This refrigerator is intended for use in a location where the
temperature ranges from a minimum of 55°F (13°C) to a maximum
of 110°F (43°C). The preferred room temperature range for
optimum performance, which reduces electricity usage and
provides superior cooling, is between 60°F (15°C) and 90°F
(32°C). It is recommended that you do not install the refrigerator
near a heat source, such as an oven or radiator.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Before you move your refrigerator into its final location, it is
important to make sure you have the proper electrical connection.
Recommended Grounding Method
A 115 volt, 60 Hz, AC only 15- or 20-amp fused, grounded
electrical supply is required. It is recommended that a separate
circuit serving only your refrigerator be provided. Use an outlet
that cannot be turned off by a switch. Do not use an extension
cord.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation, cleaning, or
removing a light bulb, turn the refrigerator to OFF. Depending on
your model, either turn the freezer control to the word OFF, or
press the Minus sign touch pads repeatedly until a dash (–)
appears in both the Freezer and Refrigerator displays as shown.
Disconnect the refrigerator from the electrical source. When you
are finished, reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical source and
reset the temperature controls to the desired setting. See “Using
the Controls.”
¹⁄₂" (1.25 cm)
Water Supply Requirements
Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.
Read and follow the instructions provided with any tools listed
here.
TOOLS NEEDED:
2¹⁄₂" (6.3 cm)
I
Flat-blade screwdriver
I
¹⁄₄" Nut driver
I
⁷⁄₁₆" and ¹⁄₂" Open-end or two
adjustable wrenches
I
¹⁄₄" Drill bit
I
Cordless drill
IMPORTANT:
I All installations must meet local plumbing code requirements.
4
I
Do not use a piercing-type or ³⁄₁₆" (4.76 mm) saddle valve
which reduces water flow and clogs more easily.
I
Use copper tubing and check for leaks. Install copper tubing
only in areas where the household temperatures will remain
above freezing.
I
For models with water filters, the disposable water filter
should be replaced at least every 6 months.
Water Pressure
A cold water supply with water pressure of between 35 and
120 psi (241 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the water
dispenser and ice maker. If you have questions about your water
pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber.
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
IMPORTANT: The pressure of the water supply coming out of a
reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the
refrigerator needs to be between 35 and 120 psi (241 and
827 kPa).
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your
cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa).
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
I Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse
osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary.
I
Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill
after heavy usage.
I
If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may further reduce the
water pressure when used in conjunction with a reverse
osmosis system. Remove the water filter. See “Water Filtration
System.”
Connect to Water Line
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Turn OFF main water supply. Turn ON nearest faucet long
enough to clear line of water.
3. Find a ¹⁄₂" to 1¹⁄₄" (12.7 mm to 31.8 mm) vertical cold water
pipe near the refrigerator.
IMPORTANT:
I
Make sure it is a cold water pipe.
I
Horizontal pipe will work, but the following procedure
must be followed: Drill on the top side of the pipe, not the
bottom. This will help keep water away from the drill. This
also keeps normal sediment from collecting in the valve.
4. Determine the length of copper tubing you need. Measure
from the connection on the lower right rear of the refrigerator
to the water pipe. Add 7 ft (2.1 m) to allow for cleaning. Use
¹⁄₄" (6.35 mm) O.D. (outside diameter) copper tubing. Be sure
both ends of copper tubing are cut square.
5. Using a cordless drill, drill a ¹⁄₄" hole in the cold water pipe you
have selected.

Connect the Water Supply
Read all directions before you begin.
IMPORTANT:
I Plumbing shall be installed in accordance with the
International Plumbing Code and any local codes and
ordinances.
I
The gray water tubing on the back of the refrigerator (which is
used to connect to the household water line) is a PEX
(cross-linked polyethylene) tube. Copper and PEX tubing
connections from the household water line to the refrigerator
are acceptable, and will help avoid off-taste or odor in your ice
or water. Check for leaks.
If PEX tubing is used instead of copper, we recommend the
following Whirlpool Part Numbers:
W10505928RP (7 ft [2.14 m] jacketed PEX),
8212547RP (5 ft [1.52 m] PEX), or
W10267701RP (25 ft [7.62 m] PEX).
I
Install tubing only in areas where temperatures will remain
above freezing.
I
If you turn on the refrigerator before the water line is
connected, turn off the ice maker to avoid excessive noise or
damage to the water valve.
A. Cold water pipe
B. Pipe clamp
C. Copper tubing
D. Compression nut
E. Compression sleeve
F. Shutoff valve
G. Packing nut
6. Fasten the shutoff valve to the cold water pipe with the pipe
clamp. Be sure the outlet end is solidly in the ¹⁄₄" drilled hole in
the water pipe and that the washer is under the pipe clamp.
Tighten the packing nut. Tighten the pipe clamp screws slowly
and evenly so the washer makes a watertight seal. Do not
overtighten.
7. Slip the compression sleeve and compression nut on the
copper tubing as shown. Insert the end of the tubing into the
outlet end squarely as far as it will go. Screw compression nut
onto outlet end with adjustable wrench. Do not overtighten or
you may crush the copper tubing.
8. Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and turn
ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is clear.
Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe.
5
Connect to Refrigerator
Depending on your model, the water line may come down from
the top or up from the bottom. Follow the connection instructions
for your model.
5. Using an adjustable wrench, hold the nut on the plastic water
line to keep it from moving. Then, with a second wrench turn
the compression nut on the copper tubing counterclockwise
to completely tighten. Do not overtighten.

Using the Controls
The temperature controls are located at the top front of the
refrigerator or freezer compartments.
Temperature Controls
For your convenience, the temperature controls are preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure the
controls are still set to the recommended setting as shown.
Recommended Setting “4”
CONDITION/REASON:
ADJUSTMENT:
REFRIGERATOR too warm
REFRIGERATOR Control
one setting higher
FREEZER too warm/too little ice
FREEZER Control one

Crisper Humidity Control
IMPORTANT:
I The recommended setting should be correct for normal
household refrigerator use. The controls are set correctly
when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is
firm.
I
Wait 24 hours for your refrigerator to cool completely before
adding food. If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled
completely, your food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the refrigerator and freezer temperature
controls to a colder than recommended setting will not cool
the compartments any faster.
I
You can control the amount of humidity in the moisture-sealed
crisper. Depending on your model, adjust the control to any
setting between FRUIT and VEGETABLES or LOW and HIGH.
FRUIT/LOW (open) for best storage of fruits and vegetables with
skins.
VEGETABLES/HIGH (closed) for best storage of fresh, leafy
vegetables.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or
freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not
blocked before adjusting the controls.
To Turn Off/On:
Press both Minus Sign touch pads repeatedly until a dash (-)
appears in both the refrigerator and freezer displays. Neither
compartment will cool.
Humidity Control (on some models)
Ice Maker
(on some models)
IMPORTANT: Flush the water system before turning on the ice
maker. See “Water Dispenser.”
Turning the Ice Maker On/Off
To turn the ice maker ON, simply lower the wire shutoff arm.
To manually turn the ice maker OFF, lift the wire shutoff arm to the
OFF (arm up) position and listen for the click.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. As ice is made,
the ice cubes will fill the ice storage bin and the ice cubes will
raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up) position. Do not
force the wire shutoff arm up or down.
The humidity control turns on a heater to help reduce moisture on
the door hinge seal. Use in humid environments or when you
notice moisture on the door hinge seal. The refrigerator uses more
energy when Humidity Control is on.
I Press the control to ON when the environment is warm and
more humid, or if you notice moisture on the door hinge seal.
I
Press the control to OFF to save energy when the environment
is less humid.
NOTE: Turn off the ice maker before removing the ice storage bin
to serve ice or to clean the bin. This will keep the ice cubes from
dropping out of the ice maker and into the freezer compartment.
After replacing the ice storage bin, turn on the ice maker.
Ice Production Rate
Adjusting Controls
If you need to adjust the temperature in either the refrigerator or
freezer compartment, use the settings listed in the chart below as
a guide.
Press the up or down arrow touch pads to adjust the temperature.
Except when starting the refrigerator, do not adjust either control
more than one setting at a time. Wait 24 hours between
adjustments for the temperature to stabilize.
I
The ice maker should produce a complete batch of ice
approximately every 3 hours.
I
To increase ice production, lower the freezer and refrigerator
temperature. See “Using the Controls.” Wait 24 hours
between adjustments.
13
Remember
Water Filtration System
I
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Allow 3 days
to completely fill the ice storage bin. Discard the first three
batches of ice produced.
The water filter is located in the upper right-hand corner of the
refrigerator compartment.
I
The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the
water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice
maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals
(such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to
poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided,
make sure the water softener is operating properly and is well
maintained.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or
of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before
or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction
may be used on disinfected waters that may contain
filterable cysts.
I
Do not store anything on top of the ice maker or in the ice
storage bin.
IMPORTANT: The disposable water filter should be replaced at
least every 6 months. If the water flow to the water dispenser or
ice maker decreases noticeably before 6 months have passed,
replace the water filter more often.
Water Dispenser
Replacing the Water Filter
(on some models)
IMPORTANT:
I After connecting the refrigerator to a water source or replacing
the water filter, flush the water system. Use a sturdy container
to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds,
then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to
flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and
releasing the dispenser lever (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off)
until a total of 4 gal. (15 L) has been dispensed. This will flush
air from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare
the water filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in
some households. As air is cleared from the system, water
may spurt out of the dispenser.
NOTE: After 5 minutes of continuous dispensing, the
dispenser will stop dispensing water to avoid flooding. To
continue dispensing, press the dispenser button again.
I
Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill
water. Dispense enough water every week to maintain a fresh
supply.
To purchase replacement water filters, model UKF8001AXX-750
or model UKF8001AXX-200, contact your dealer or call
1-800-253-1301 U.S.A. or 1-800-807-6777 Canada.
IMPORTANT: Air trapped in the water system may cause water
and filter to eject. Always dispense water for at least 2 minutes
before removing the filter or blue bypass cap.
1. Turn filter counterclockwise to remove.
2. Remove sealing label from replacement filter and insert the
filter end into the filter head.
3. Turn the filter clockwise until it stops. Snap the filter cover
closed.
4. Flush the water system. See “Water and Ice Dispenser(s).”
NOTE: The dispenser feature may be used without a water filter
installed. Your water will not be filtered. If this option is chosen,
replace the filter with the blue bypass cap.
REFRIGERATOR CARE
Dispensing Water
1. Hold a container under the dispenser while pressing the
button.
2. Release the button to stop dispensing.
Cleaning
WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Use nonflammable cleaner.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically.
However, clean both sections about once a month to avoid
buildup of odors. Wipe up spills immediately.
IMPORTANT:
I Because air circulates between both sections, any odors
formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To avoid
odor transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods
tightly.
