What is the purpose of the cap on the fillter
For model number ED5VHEXVQ01
Hi Martha, Thank you for the question, The filter cap slips onto the end of the filter and it gives you something to hold onto when removing and installing the filters. Without the filter it will be difficult to reach and hold onto the water filter once it is in the hole. Hope this helps!

I think my cap to remove water filter is broken? I can not remover filter, it used to be so easy to do, hw can i tell if it broken. It's chipped on the sides with the two open slots, chipped on both ends.
For model number ED5KVEXB00
Hello Paul, thank you for your question. If the cap is chipped along those sides with the two open slots its very possible that has impacted the ability to remove the filter easily. I would recommend replacing the cap, which is Cap, Water Filter (Black) WP2260518B. I was able to find a video on removing the filter after the cap is broken. I hope this helps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcIgci4pRjc

When we last replaced our water filter, we had difficulty getting the filter to slide in an lock in place,so we pushed it into place. It’s time to replace the filter, and we can’t get it to pop out by depressing the button as in the past. Any suggestions? If no, what type of repairman should we contact?
For model number GS6NBEXRA01

Will the water filter work and stay in place without the cap
For model number Wooton
Hello Fred, Thank you for contacting us. The cap is used to help secure the filter so the filter may not perform correctly without it. Have a great day!

Water filter changed due to slow water. The end cap to help you remove filter is broken. We are finding that if you put pressure on the filter the water runs faster. If you install the filter without the cap the water is slower. Do we just need the end cap for the filter or do we also need the water filter housing
For model number GS6NBEXRL00
Hello Charlotte, thank you for inquiring. This is most likely due to the Water Filter Housing, part number PS11748615 for your model. Good luck with your repair!

We have an ro system attached to the water dispenser in our fridge. I need a cap to seal off the filter part so the fridge will stop beeping at us to change the filter.
Hi Shauna, Thank you for your question. Before we can verify the part number for the correct cap for you, we would need the model number from your refrigerator. Here is a link from our website that you may reference on where to find the model number on your appliance, https://www.partselect.com/Find-Your-Refrigerator-Model-Number.aspx. We hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day.

I needed to replace broken wheels on my dishwasher rack and a cracked plastic cap on a water filter
I had called the manufacturer and their prices were outrageous and I still didn't have the part numbers. The partselect.com website was so easy to use that I instantly looked at the line drawings and was able to figure out what to order. It was a snap and I am not the most handy person. Their prices were good, and though I paid for the cheapest shipping, I got the parts the next day, which shocked me. They were an excellent company to deal with.

The filter cap broke when something fell out of the freezer.
We popped out the new filter and replaced the cap with a twist. It was so easy. It is important to vaccum the front of the refrigerator for accumulating dust.

icicles hanging off of ice cube maker. The ice maker still made ice cubes but somehow water must have been overfilling the tray and trickling over and freezing, Tirning into long thin icicles.
Figured that ice forming tray was overfilling. The ice maker has an electrical timer motor and temp sensor built in.
Figured something might be wrong with it.
Decided to change the unit. It was affordable.
I changed it. No more icicles.
