Did you buy an LG filter or an aftermarket one? How much was the filter?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
I sent the type of filter above. It is an aftermarket filter I believe
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Also, I have a kenmore elite? Why would I buy an LG filter?
Expert:  Kelly replied 15 days ago.

That is likely the issue. You really need to use the filters made by LG for that refrigerator. Using the aftermarket ones is usually problematic.

Expert:  Kelly replied 15 days ago.

That refrigerator is made by LG.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
