Would the ice maker stopped making ice if the filter needs replaced?
Answer Hi Anna, the manufacturer recommends that your place the water filter every six months depending on use. The filter would affect more the dispense rather than the icemaker. If the icemaker is not getting any water you migth have a defective water valve W10270395. Hope this helps!

I have tried to get the filter out by turning it but it does not budge. Can you help?
Answer Hello Babs. The only way to remove the filter from the filter head is by twisting it. Some of these can be tight and the filter head may unsnap from the unit. Just hold the head in one hand and twist the filter to remove it.
I am unable to push filter in so that handle can be turned clockwise..it simply will not go in or turn ..

The easiest way to get the filter to turn in would be to remove the kickplate and turn the filter as it will give better access. If the filter will still not go in then it is either a damaged filter or the filter housing is bad.

How do I replace the filter head inside the filter cover.
To replace the filter head, you will first need to pull out the unit and turn off the water supply. Disconnect the tubing that goes from the filter to the water valve and water supply lines. You will then remove the plate over the filter lines where they enter the cabinet. Go to the front of the unit and lower the cover of the filter and where it is hinged just pull to one side to release the cover and slide the opposite direction to remove the cover. Once this is done, the filter head is held in by clips that you would just pull the head out of the clips and pull the tubing and all out of the refrigerator and install the new one. Assemble in reverse.
