I have a GE refrigerator with an MWF SmartWater filter. Does it have to be replaced with the same kind of filter or can it be replaced with just an MWF, and what's the difference between the two?

I replaced the water filter which I have several times with no incident. This time when inserting the filter, there was a grinding, rattling noise. I took it out, filled it with water and replaced . No noise this time but now only a dribble of water comes out of the dispenser and then stops. It has been 15 minutes and no change. I reinserted the old filter which worked fine before but still only getting a dribble of water. What is the problem?

I installed a new MWF water filter and when I did so, black water sprayed everywhere. I did install it correctly. When I ran the water through the water was black. I ran the water until it cleared up. Is the water safe to drink now or should I still get a new filter?

I have a MWF water filter which I replaced in May 2014. I replace them every 6 months or earlier if the light goes on. I have been on vacation for the last two weeks. When I came home, the water that dispensed from the refrigerator was clear but had beige and darker particulates floating in it. Ok. I ran about 10 gallons through the water dispenser with very little difference change. Still stuff floating in my water. I ran water from my unfiltered tap, and it was perfectly clear. I am confused. My water from the refrigerator has always been crystal clear. If the town flushed the water, it should have worked its way through the refrigerator by now. Any suggestions on what I should do?

I have a Monogram Fridge ZISS-480DRSS. I changed the filter and it automatically raised as I believe it should do. However, I realized I forgot to fill it with water as the instructions say. So I went ahead and took it of by turning it as stated in the instructions. When I filled it with water, I tried putting it back on and it does not automatically raise. If I put it back by just turning it counterclockwise, water does not come out of the dispenser. Could you please help?

For several years, I could not get water from dispenser but ice maker was fine. Lately, ice maker quit so I tried a new water filter. Now I get ice again but if I ask for water, the water comes out on floor under refrig. I thought possibly it was the water valve so I remover rear lower panel. Water was coming down from above just above water valve and a little toward the front thru a crack. Thought I should remove large rear panel on rear of refrig but at bottom, the panel is riveted near bottom. No water dripping inside at filter where it screws on. Where do I go from here?

When I insert the replacement filter MWF into the cartridge, as instructed, and turn to the right until it stops, nothing happens. It does not automatically raise itself into position as it's supposed to. There is no noise of a motor engaging to raise it. It appears the motor is dead. Am I right in this assumption? If so, what part(s) do I need to replace/order?
