I've got a one year old Whirlpool Gold fridge. The indicator for
replacing the water filter flipped to red a few days ago and the taste
of the water was getting a bit coppery(?) so I went and bought a new
filter and plugged it in.
The water coming out now tastes fine, but I can't get the indicator to
go back to green. It's of the "press and hold" variety, but when I
press and hold, it blinks green a few times but stays red. I've
experimented with holding varying amounts of time, but no luck.
Anybody have any ideas? This isn't worth calling a repairman, but it
would be nice to see the green.

Bummer. I had a Whirlpool with that feature 3-4 years ago in another
house. I can't recall the details, but never had a problem with the reset.
Sounds like it could be a defect. Obviously, the filter works
independently from the indicator light, which is really just a timer
indicator. It doesn't really measure water usage. Is it still under
Are you completely sure it's supposed to be "press and hold"? To reset the
light on our fridge (KitchenAid, made by Whirlpool), you press the door
switch five times quickly. Can't hurt to try that, at any rate.
