Question about Refrigerators
I'm trying to change the water filter in my Frigidaire side-by-side - model #FRS6LRSEW3 - and it will not budge. How can I loosen it?
Thanks. Whirlpool MDL# ED5LTZXVL00 - How do you change the water filter? I've read the Use and Care Guide several times and no where does it tell you "How to change the water filtes". Please advise
Here is an animation that helped me!
Hope that helps.

you need two things. the most important is a bigger tool. The filter is just too tight for loosening by hand. use a big pair of channel locks or a smal pipe wrench to turn the filter body to your left when facing it. you won't hurt it. counterclockwise to remove it, clockwise to install it back. put it back a hard hand tight and make sure it doesn't leak when you run water through it. you don't have to turn off the water, but run plenty of water through the new filter to get the air out.
the second thing is to curse it properly and sincerely while loosening the old filter. the harder you have to work to loosen it, the more specific and socially unacceptable the curse words have to be. white collar and office type workers frequently fail at this part because they aren't really cursing from the heart. you have to mean it.

Tips for a great answer:
I appreciate your inquiry, bela_desousa!
From the information you have provided the water dispenser on your Frigidaire refrigerator is not dispensing. Have you recently changed your water filter? If you water filter has not been changed and is dirty or clogged it could lead to potential failure of your water dispenser. If the filter has been changed it could be a faulty dispenser. I would suggest consulting with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt
