Question about Amana ACD2232HR Side by Side Refrigerator
Turn old filter fully clockwise until dead stop reached & filter will not come loose
Your statement says you turned the filter fully clockwise, to remove the filter you would turn it counterclockwise. I figure you know that and did a typo.
My first suggestion would be to turn the filter fully counterclockwise until the dead stop, then while holding the filter with one hand you would push and release quickly the water dispenser lever. The pressure should pop the filter out of its socket.
My second suggestion is turn filter counterclockwise to dead stop, then take a very hot towel (protect your hands and to not touch towel to any glass shelves) and wrap it around the filter. This method will hopefully warm the water in the filter causing the water to expand and help push the filter out of its socket.
My third suggestion would be more extreme. Turn the water supply off. Turn filter counterclockwise to dead stop, then drill a hole in the side of the filter to allow air into the filter to release any vacuum in the filter allowing you to pull it out of the socket.
If none of these work then the filter socket probably will have to be disconnected so you can get it out of the compartment and get a better grip on all.
I have never had to go that far myself.
Good luck and I hope I have helped you.
