This video will show you how to replace the RPWFE water filter on your GE appliances refrigerator. Please note, there’s no need to shut off the water in your house before replacing the filter. Please review the installation instructions before beginning. The RPWFE water filter has been redesigned. But it’s still the same quality filter you’d expect from GE appliances. You should replace your water filter every six months or when you notice a decrease in water flow. Touch screen model refrigerators will display a filter status message when the filter needs replacing, while non-touch screen models will display a filter indicator light. To locate the filter, look inside the refrigerator in the upper left corner. Some refrigerators have the filter inside the left door. If your filter is located inside the refrigerator, begin by placing a small towel underneath the filter door to capture any dripping water when removing the old cartridge. Now, swing the old filter all the way to the right until it stops. The filter will not release until it is in this position. Then simply pull the old filter out. Without twisting the cartridge. Align the top of the new filter in the holder with the word “Front” facing outward. Firmly push the filter in until it engages to ensure that it is properly seated, again being careful not to twist the cartridge. Swing the filter back into place and close the filter door. If the filter doesn’t swing, double-check that you have aligned and engaged it properly. If your filter is located inside the door of your refrigerator, gently swing the old filter upward until it stops. Then pull the filter downward without twisting. Align the notches on top of the new filter with the filter head and firmly press inward until it engages. Now swing the new filter back into place. Again, do not twist the cartridge. Next, you’ll need to purge any air from the water system. Run about two gallons of water through the new filter to clear any air from the system. If your refrigerator has a hands-free, auto-fill option, don’t use it until you have finished this step. A little water may initially spurt from the dispenser. Also, it’s normal to see a slight discoloration of your water during this step. But don’t worry. The water will return to its normal color after being dispensed for a few minutes. You’ll need to reset the filter status message on non-touchscreen models. Some touchscreen models will automatically reset the filter status when the filter is replaced. To reset it manually, access the main menu. Select water filter and press reset. Now your ready to enjoy fresher cleaner filtered water and ice from your GE appliances refrigerator. For quality you can trust, remember to always use genuine GE appliances, parts and accessories. They are engineered for long lasting reliable performance.
