I have been trying to remove/replace water filter in this side/side refrigerator and no success. i have got large plyers on the filter and attempted to move side, to side, push and pull to no avail. does anybody have any suggestion?

am i going to be forced to replace the entire water filter housing?

what kind of project will it be to replace entire housing? this filter has been difficult to remove since it was new.

any help will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Terry

Hello Jake,
Thank you for your reply. i have opened the filter cover and filter is NOT released. "Life open the filter cover door. the filter will be released and then be ejected as the door is opened." We purchased the refrigerator new, and ever since the 1st filter change, the filter has not released like described in manual. i have pushed with my hand and have got the filter to release previously. the last couple filters i have used large pliers to remove filter. Using pliers to remove filter is NOT working.

any ideas
