Push in while turning. Some are on a spring-loaded bayonet mount. This should do it.

Water filter is hard to remove.

Hello Marjorie;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

I have gone on service calls just to remove a water filter.

1.) If the water filter is on the bottom in the front of the refrigerator; you will need to use a tool such as a wrench, channel locks .... Grab the end of the water filter and turn counter clockwise.

2.) If the filter is in the upper right had corner of your fresh food section; you have to push up hard and turn it counter clockwise. You just have to strong arm it.

This will not always be the case. Your next filter should be easier.

Note: You only need to change your water filter when the water coming out of the water dispenser is slow or your ice cubes are getting smaller. Your filter light is just a 6 month timer. Your water filter can last you 9 months, 1 year, 18 months?

How do I install a water filter in a GE refrigerator ZFSB26DRH

Filter is located in the top right corner of the fresh food section. Clear off top shelf to give yourself working room. Filter is a screw in type but it only needs about a1/4 to 1/2 turn. Counter clockwise (left ) to remove and pull down slightly. Push new one up and turn right to reinstall. You will only get a few drips of water during the change AS LONG AS YOU DON'T PRESS DISPENSER FOR WATER. That all there is to it. Your filter number should be MWF.

  1. 1. Look for the water filter cartridge. On some refrigerators it is located in the back, upper right corner of the refrigerator compartment. Some refrigerators have it in a tubular-like slot under the door and accessible from outside.
    2. Remove the old cartridge. On the cartridges that are located inside the refrigerator, the cartridge should be slowly turned to the left. Don't pull down on the cartridge. A small amount of water may drip. On the type that are under the door, follow the arrow labeling for the direction to unscrew it. Slide it outside.
    3. To replace a filter, fill the replacement cartridge with water from the tap. This will speed up water flow after installation. Run water from the dispenser for three minutes after replacing a filter to clear the line. Refrigerators with a filter warning light require you to reset the light. Press and hold the Reset Water Filter button to do that.

Filter needs changing

You don't need a plumber. The filter is located inside the fresh food section, in top-right corner. There is an elongated cover with a tab in front. Press the tab towards the back of the fridge slightly and pull the cover front down. There is your filter. No need to turn the water off either. Just twist the filter counterclockwise and it will pop off.
The part number of the filter is UKF8001, can be purchased in any appliance parts store, for example here. "New10"coupon takes 10% off.
