There are 2 water filter assemblies - WR17X11920 and WR17X11618 - that show for my appliance model. Which one is correct? Also, I have the issue another person mentioned. I was going to replace the filter and when I removed it water spewed everywhere. Put the bypass in - same problem, put the old filter in - same problem. I had to shutoff the water valve at the wall as my kitchen was flooding at that point.
Could it be a burr?
Here's what was suggested in another answer to check:
"If the valve has not closed and you are getting full pressure (with the power off the valve) then it will be an issue. Remove the water line going to the filter head from the valve. Turn the house valve back on and the units valve should not spew water unless the valve is defective." I don't understand this. Where do I remove the water line going to the filter head? At the house valve?
ANSWER Hello Tom,
When you remove the water filter from the unit and water sprays out all over from out of the filter head then you will need to replace the filter head assembly WR17X20862. The correct water filter for unit is MWFP.
