Product Description

Refrigerator Ice and Water Filter Specifications

This OEM ice and water filter fits side-by-side and bottom-freezer GE models. The most common reason you would need to change this part is if you have never updated your model and it is no longer filtering your water. This also may lead to your refrigerator not dispensing water or ice properly. Manufacturers recommend you change your filter every six months to ensure it properly filters impurities. Depending on the model, a red light might also indicate that the filter is due for a replacement. Note: As per the manufacturer, this is an updated water filter. If you have never installed the updated part or your old model was made by Culligan, you may need the adapter to install the filter. See related parts. This filter is located inside the refrigerators upper right corner. It is common for water to drip from the dispenser when being changed so place a cloth underneath before you begin this repair. To remove the filter, turn it to the left until it releases without pulling down. Fill the new filter with tap water to prepare it. Position the new filter into the holder taking note of the arrows. The arrow on the front should be facing out. Gently push up on the filter and turn it to the right to secure it. Do not over-tighten. To release air in the system run 1-1/2 gallons of water through it. If your model has a reset button, press and hold this for a few seconds to reset it.

The Frame Cover I ordered had broken. 3rd time replacing it. Bad Quality
There is a shelf that goes on top of the frame cover. That was not broken. Replacement was not necessary. The shelf does not fit properly in the new frame. Your advice was to buy a new shelf at a cost. Would have been good to tell consumer that the product doesn't fit the previous frame.

noise from freezer.(WhOOOO-oooooh, WHOOO-oooooh,......) annoying with doors closed, worse with freezer door open.
Watched some videos on youtube after typing in : refrigerator noise, and my model # (in search bar.) Found a video after determining my problem of a gentleman from partselect replacing the evaporator motor. Pretty simple job from video so I went for it ordered parts from them( I fixed the inlet valve on my dishwasher bfore with partselect before). I would call the job easier than it looks. But you need common sense and simple tools and some experience with nuts and bolts and wires. There is one bolt tucked up high under ice maker you may need a right angle nut driver or 1/4 right angle ratchet.(video pointed out). Thanks for video and quality GE parts. I now have a quiet kitchen and great room, with just a low db constant white noise like new.

Ice tray was one solid ice cube
Leaking icemaker assembly was causing all of the ice cubes in the ice tray to freeze together. Remove ice tray, remove one Philips screw, pull the cover off, unplug the wires, remove the icemaker assembly by pushing tab and pulling the assembly at the same time. Replaced the water filter as well.

Auto water stopped working, found that filter needed replacement
Unscrewed old cartridge, ordered new cartridge, installed new cartridge by following very simple instructions. Took only one day for part to arrive from PartSelect although I paid for cheapest shipping, which was "ground." I was amazed!

I watched the video, and noticed that they did not even turn off the water. The replacement took less than 30 seconds once the filter was filled with water.

I just installed a new water filter and my refrigerator stopped making ice, it does dispense water.
For model number GSHS6HGDBCSS
PartSelect logo
Hello Judy, thank you for your question. Check the fill tube and fill cup that brings water to the icemaker. It could be clogged with ice. If there is no ice obstructing the tube and cup, test the water inlet valve to be sure both ports on the valve are working. Here is a link on how to test the water valve. https://www.partselect.com/Refrigerator+test-water-valve+repair.htm. You can also try to run the following test on the icemaker itself.Turn icemaker Off for 15 seconds and turn back on,Push in on paddle 3 times and only 3 times within 15 seconds of powering the icemaker back on.Within 3 minutes, the icemaker should enter the harvest mode.The heater will turn on for a about of 20 seconds, and the comb inside the icemaker will make one full revolution and return to the "Home" position.At the end of 3 minutes, the icemaker mold should fill with water.The green light under the ON/OFF switch should be on and steady.If this does not fix the issue you may need to replace the icemaker. I hope this helps!

Is this filter compatable for my refrigerator? Or do i need to the adapter?
For model number GSS25GGHECWW
PartSelect logo
Hello Turo, thank you for your question. Yes, the filter part number MWFP is the right part for your appliance. However, this is an updated water filter. If you have never installed the updated part or your old model was made by Culligan, you may need the adapter to install the filter. The Water Filter Adapter is Part Number 220347. I hope this helps!

I have two lines in back of my fridge one of them is just a tube with an opening at the tip. The other has a fitting on it what are they for i’m quite sure the one with the screw cap on it is for the water line what’s the other one for
For model number GSH25GGCBBB

Hi Ray, Thank you for your question. The only plastic tube lines that you should have in your fridge are water lines. Anything copper has to do with your compressor. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.
