Hello,

Take the new water filter out of the box and remove the two red shipping caps on the end of the filter.
The water filter is located on the front panel down near the floor.
Push the release button located just to the left of the water filter grille cap, this will release the filter.
Remove the grille cap from the filter by twisting it counterclockwise.
Reinstall the grille cap on the new water filter.
Insert the new water filter in the refrigerator making sure the words on the filter are the correct side up.
Push the water filter in until it clicks in place.
Flush Water After Installing New Filter
Be sure you flush out the water from the new filter after you replace it! Many readers are having trouble with airlocks because they are skipping this important step. Kenmore recommends you run the water out of the water and ice maker for a few minutes to flush out the new filter. This also helps remove air bubbles from the system. If you don’t do this it’s possible that the water dispenser may not work properly due to an air lock.

This particular water filter claims to reduce:
Cysts and turbidity – linked to gastrointestinal problems
Lead
Chlorine – taste and odor for better tasting water
Sediment – for clearer water
o-Dichlorobenzene – linked to risk of liver, kidney, or circulatory system problems
Benzene – linked to increase risk of cancer and anemia.
Note continue changing the filter on a regular basis.
Hope this helpout....

Hello, did you put the filter on in the right direction? Check the arrow on the filter. It probably will clear up and soon or get a new filter, take the old one back for a new one.

How do I buy and replace the water filter on my fridgeGWL207FBQA?


In a nut shell this is how to do it:
Find the water filter housing in the top area of the Refrigerator. Remove the cap/cover (turn left). Remove the old and install the new filter (turn it to the right to lock it in place). Re-install the cover and drain 2 gallons to flush the system.

Here's what the maker says: (look about 1/4 down the page until you see "Changing your LG REFRIGERATOR's Water Filter" and follow the steps. http://www.lg.com/us/support/answers/refrigerators/scheduled-maintenance
The filter number is 5231JA2006. Costs about $50 (check eBay or Amazon). Or here at LG http://www.lg.com/us/appliance-accessories/lg-LT600P-water-filter
Hope this helps...

Amana model# SZD23VE refrigerator were is the water filter? or does it even have a water filter?


Yes it has a water filter option. The water filter housing is in the refrigerator near the top of the unit. You need to twist the old filter itself to the left to remove. (You will be removing a cover that you need to take off the old filter and put on the new filter. This cover can also be replaced without a filter to bypass the filter. The part number for the filter is AP4310541, http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=4310541 .

I hope this helps.

I have replace my water and the waer has stopped


Remove the new filter and re-instal. If this doesn't solve problem I would put the old filter back in and try. If you now have water remove the old and try the new one again. Don't forget to push firmly as it may have not seated fully.

How do i remove the water filter


The filter will come out attached to the cover .. look inside the cavity . there should be a space there for the filter .. the ones at the top of the fridge are quite small compared to the ones that go at the bottom on some fridges. Most appliance or building supply stores will have replacement filters on hand .. have your make and model number to get the correct replacement., or the old filter ..

Bad water & ice cube taste


then change your filter. the new filter could be different with the old filter. check the new filter, see if there is odor removal and taste removal with it.

if not then get the filter with carbon filter, odor and taste removal.

then with a new filter, run about 5 gallons of water before using the water for drinking.

tnx 4 using fixya,
