I own a Whirlpool WHEMB40 under the sink water filter

Customer Question
I own a Whirlpool...

I own a Whirlpool WHEMB40 under the sink water filter system. The water faucet that came with the unit. WHEMB40 has loosen. I have misplaced the manual and I am having trouble tightening it. I have removed the set screw from the side but still can not get to the underside to tighten it. Can you help?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Around 6 years, give or take a year. Where would I find the model # since I don't have the manual?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes. I did it a few years ago. Was simple then. Just can't remember the next step.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not really.
