I have a KitchenAid standalone ice maker model KUIX305ESS1 and i can't remove the water filter. The filter will not turn all the way to the unlock position. I have removed the cover from the filter housing but I am still unable to remove. It looks like I will need to disconnect the water input lines from each side of the filter housing and remove both the housing and the filter. I'm hoping I can get some advise on how to separate the filter from the housing and not mes up the water line connectivity to the filter housing, not sure how to remove ? Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

Jeff,

Thanks for your reply, that is the same conclusion I have come to. Just wondering how to get the two apart ?

Why bother if they both get replaced. Just have to disconnect the water lines from the filter head.
