I am replacing the water filter holder and would like to know how to disconnerct the water lines


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are trying to replace the water filter holder, or housing, on your Frigidaire refrigerator, and are wondering how to disconnect the water lines. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair. There are no manuals that will guide you in replacing the water filter housing. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have had the necessary training to replace the housing with ease. Should you have any other questions, please feel free to reconnect. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Water Inlet Valve
If the hose connections are good to the water inlet valve check that water is not leaking from the valve itself it is replace the water inlet valve.

Drain Pump
Check the drain pump housing and all hose connections. The drain pump is down under neath. To disassemble your washer follow the appropiate tutorial. Hoses can be tightened. If hoses or pump housing is leaking replace the pump assembly.

Tub Seal
This is in the center of the tub. The seal is inexpensive but will require some labor to install. Check the tutorials on disassembling the cabinet then remove the agitater and inner tub. Enter your model # above for a diagram or illustration.

PureSource2 filter popped out on its own. Bought a new one because its past due, but cant get it to install all the way. Tried with & without pushing release button that is functional. HELP!! What is...


These filters, Electrolux advises, have been re-designed. Right now, as of this writing (July 5 2013) they are giving out conflicting reports of whether a special installation technique for the re-designed filter will work (doesn't for me) or if their Service Flash RF1210 will cover replacement of the filter housing (Won't for Sears Kenmore models). I'm unable to solve the problem so have written back to my distributor about this whole problem asking them to dig into it with Electrolux.

Water leaking from around filter housing


There is a seal around the filter housing. If it is leaking around the filter housing than you need to replace the filter which will come with a new seal.

Water leak at filter


You probably will have to replace the water filter housing that holds the water filter. This is an relatively easy job and should only take about 30 min. The housing will cost around $40-$50 online or from your appliance store. Turn off the water to the fridge. Take the top shelf out of the fridge to access the water filter area. There is a small screw in a really deep hole on the bottom of the cover, just to the right of the filter cup. I used a really small socket (9/32",1/4" or 9mm - can't remember) and extention. Take out the screw which will uncover the housing. The water hoses (white) just slip onto the housing - check these to verify if they are on tight. If they are loose this is the water leak. if they are on tight (which I'm sure they are) then proceed. Take off the filter cup which is screwed onto the housing. Remember "righty tighty - lefty loosy". Take another small screw (maybe two) out which holds the housing to the refrigerator. Now pull the water hoses off the housing. This is kinda tuff because the hoses are just slid on to the housing and are held on by friction only and its hard to get a good grasp because of the location of the unit. You can't really stick much under the hoses to pry them off either because if you damage them, they won't hold the seal later. Just pull and twist and they should come off. Visually inspect the housing unit, you should be able to see a crack if there is one. Replace if necessary. Just make sure not to overtighten the screws and especially the filter cup when reinstalling. Good luck and I hope this helps.

Changing the water filter in my Frigidaire


My Frigidaire PureSource water filter housing wouldn't unscrew either. Even with the supplied plastic "wrench" and later a cloth-covered pipe wrench, it wouldn't budge. Since both my icemaker and my door dispenser stopped dispensing water, and the filter housing in the fridge wouldn't budge, I suspected that the filter was full of frozen water. (Sometimes things on the top shelf of the fridge freeze, so it was obviously too cold.) I used a hair dryer on the water filter housing for a few minutes, and then the water filter unscrewed easily. Sure enough, the whole inside was a block of frozen water.

This would have been such a simple repair, HOWEVER unfortunately it turned out that I wrenched it too hard and broke the inlet valve on the housing. As soon as I thawed out the filter and reassembled, water was pouring out of the top. Took off the big cover at the top ceiling of the fridge and saw my problem.

It's only about a $25 part, but I'd advise that you be careful to only turn, without rocking back and forth, the housing when trying to unscrew. I guess I wiggled it back and forth too much and cracked it.
