I have a whirlpool side by side refrigerator with a twist-to-lock filter Part number 4396508. This fridge came with the house and sat through the winter. When we turned the water on we learned that the filter had cracked at the base of the filter where it connects to the assembly that holds it.
I have tried the following:
Using the broken piece of the filter to try and turn it out.
Gluing a piece of PVC pipe to the piece
I drilled 2 small holes into the piece and tried to use a grill fork to take it out.
Are there any other suggestions?
ANSWER Hello Joe. If you can not get the filter to remove, you can always replace the housing and the filter on the unit.
