Customer Question
I have a maytag...

I have a maytag refrigerator model no. JFC2089HTB, Pls give me instructions to change the water filter. Have just hooked up the water system after some remodel and do not know how to put in a new filter and have no handbook. Right now there is a blue plug where the new filter is suppose to go. Does that stay or shall we remove that before putting in the new filter. Not sure what the blue plug is for. Guessing it is used when no filter is in place. Thank you

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

If I were to guess, I would say 8 to 10 years old

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

Yes

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

I cant think of anything at the present time

That plug is just a filter bypass. All you need to do is unscrew the plug by twisting it counter clockwise and then puling it out. Then put the filter in and twist it clockwise until it locks in place. Now dispense about 1 gallon of water out of the dispenser to purge any air out and you should be good to go again.
