Thank you. After I remove the filter water still leaks out. The cap fits on the end of the filter. How do I get the cap all the way back to where the filter goes into the refrigerator?

Welcome back to ManageMyLife.com! Water will drip for a few moments once the filter is out, but should not continuously drip after that. Remove the cap from the filter by twisting it off. Insert the cap into the filter housing and twist slightly to "lock". The cap will not go further than about 2 inches into the grille just so it does not stick out. It does not need to make contact with the water tubing because once the water filter has been removed from the unit, it has been bypassed. Inserting the cap into the grille is more for the benefit of not loosing the cap.
If you have further questions please let me know. Thanks for using ManageMyLife.com.

When I removed the filter water came gushing out where the filter goes into the refrigerator. Water was coming out pretty fast.

Hello Mike538! I know how frustrating it can be when the refrigerator doesn't function properly. The water supply should be pressurized and definitely should not be leaking out when no filter is in place. Check your manual for water pressure requirements and be sure the pressure to your refrigerator is correct. Based on this symptom, your filter housing may be damaged and should be replaced. I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair. Just click the blue link below to be taken to the page.

Q:

How do you install a KitchenAid cap filter bypass

A:

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your refrigerator. On this model the by-pass cap will go in the filter housing, just without the filter. The image below will provide the instructions on how to remove the filter. You skip step 3 and use the "Note" then skip everything else. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, please click on the link to schedule service: Sears Home Services. Click on "Get Started" and follow the directions, click on the red "NEXT" button to continue. I hope this helps. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help. Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.
