Tools Needed

No special tools are required to replace the water filter in your Miele refrigerator. The replacement can typically be done by hand with the following items:

  • New Miele water filter
  • Towel (optional, to catch any drips)
  • Step-by-Step Guide

    Locate Your Filter

    The water filter in a Miele fridge is usually located in the grille at the bottom or inside the refrigerator, depending on the model. Refer to your owner’s manual for exact location.

    Prepare the Area

    Place a towel under the filter area to catch any water that may spill during the filter removal and installation process.

    Remove the Old Filter

    Twist the old filter a quarter-turn to the left or press the release button, depending on your fridge model. Pull it straight out and discard it.

    Install the New Filter

    Take the new water filter out of its packaging and remove any protective coverings. Align it with the connector and push it in until it locks into place. Twist it a quarter-turn to the right if your model requires it.

    Flush the System

    Run water through the dispenser for about 5 minutes to clean the system and prevent sputtering. Check for any leaks around the filter area.

    Reset the Filter Indicator

    If your Miele fridge has a filter indicator, reset it by following the instructions in your owners manual. This often involves pressing and holding a button for a few seconds.
