Hi!!

The filter may have been installed too tight. Use a wrench to hold the male adaptor and another wrench to turn the filter loose.

Good luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

Brita faucet filter adapter is stuck in my faucet


It sounds like the adapter was screwed in at an angle. This causes the threads to cross in turn making it near impossible to unscrew. Since it is plastic I recommend buying a new adapter. I know it's unfortunate, however it is a lost cause.

I have been unable to remove the wter filter. I have tried to turn it 1/4 of an inch clockwise as described in the owners manual but the filter won't budge. any suggestions?


OK maybe try 1/4 inch counterclockwise and pull down. Here is what the service manual quotes.

That is easy for anyone to misread.
Water Filter Removal

The water filter is located in the upper right-hand

corner of the refrigerator. The water filter filters water

for the ice maker and the water dispenser.

1. Turn the water filter 1/2 turn counterclockwise and

pull it down.

2. To install the filter, align the indication mark

(unlock position) and push it up while turning 1/2

turn clockwise until the lock position is aligned.

Do not over tighten.
That would be to the left while facing the filter and opposite for installation. Note where and when to push up. Please let me know if you have any questions and please rate if I am able to help you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Water keeps overflowing, dont know how to clean the filter or where it is .


hi, read about your problem. The filter is located at the bottom of the front of washer. If its not visible, remove the bottom kick panel. Three screws at bottom. Take a shallow pan and place under filter. Slowly turn counterclockwise and water will slowly start to come out. When pan is partially full, empty. Be sure to close filter before doing this. Keep up with this procedure until no more water comes out, then unscrew filter and remove and clean. Reinstall and put kickplate back on. Hope this helps.

I need to change the water filter and theblack thing that turns (at the bottom of fridge)I came off. I can view the filter but can;t budge it or get the black thing back on. what position should I place...


Hi, read your complaint. You are dealing with the lint filter here. First off, take a shallow pan and put up close and underneath filter. Because the handle is broke off, get a vicegrips, or channel locks, to start turning it counterclockwise slowly.
water will start to come out. Drain pan accordingly until no more water comes out. Then unscrew counterclockwise to remove completely. You probably will need to contact a local parts house for a new filter. Be sure to take your make and model number along, as they will need it. Hope this helps.

Empty pan when partly full. Repeat until no more water come out. Unscrew filter and remove. Clean, inspect cavity and replace. Hope this helps.

Washer won't spin fast water doesn't drain


Remove your bottom front kick panel, usually two to three screws on the very bottom front of the washer. Unplug washer, have a lot of towels ready to mop up the water that comes out of the washer. In the very center front of the washer is the round plastic drain pump filter for the washer. Unscrew this a little,(turn the plastic screw counterclockwise) and let the water drain completely as you soak it up with your towels. When it is completely drained, unscrew the filter the rest of the way and clean out all the debris in the filter and inside its receptacle. Reinstall everything and test. I recommend you do this at least every 6 months. If this doesn't work then you may have a bad water pump. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Filter Removal: Clockwise or Counterclockwise?


Insure that the pressure is off and has been released pushing the relief button several times will do that as long as the filter has been issolated. Push the bowel up and counterclockwise will release it. No big guns required

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.

Removing bolt in agitator arm


The bolt unscrews counterclockwise. Hold the agitator by the bottom vanes. If it won',t budge try tightening it first, just a little to break it free.
