Question about GE GSS25LGM Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I recently replaced the water dispenser filter. The original style was no longer available, so I installed the recommended replacement part #MWF. A couple days later the water dispensor stops working. I can hear the switch and pump activating, but, no water comes from nozzle.

The water supply line going up thru the freezer door has frozen. Quick way to test is to disconnect incoming line at bottom of freezer door and close door and activate switch to see if water getting to the door at least. If it is then you will have to defrost the line in the door with a hair dryer. The area that freezes is near the switches. Slow process but will work. or unplug for 24 hours which is real inconvenient.

SOURCE: No water from dispensor in door.

Ice supply line is frozen in the freezer door. Using a hair dryer with the door open you have to thaw the line. This will take time but this will fix.

I replaced my GE profile MWF water filter (identical GE part) and now I dont have water dispensing and don't have a working ice maker


Quite frequently carbon fines can be flushed from filter and plug the filter. If you have the bypass plug to replace the filter. Put that in and flush system completely. Take the filter and flush it at the kitchen sink. It is best to fill these with water before installing and flush the carbon fines before installing in fridge.

GE SmartWater MWF Refrigerator Filter is making noise when dispensing water


The filter body for the unit is poorly designed and can only stand maybe 8 filter changes before it starts failing to open fully with the new cartridge. As far as I can tell the only solution is to replace the filter body.

I have exactly the same problem. Replaced my GWF filter with the "new improved" MWF filter and the same thing happened. Tried replacing the filter not once, but twice - same low water flow. If you install the bypass plug the water flow is normal, so don't bother checking for water restrictions, bad hoses, tanks etc.. My refridgerator is a GE Profile 26 cubic foot purchased in 2004. I'm afraid these MWF filters don't work well in older models.
