What is OEM? I bought this after I purchased
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It is a water sentinel brand filter WSL-3. It was marketed that it fit my fridge
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

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

I sent the type of filter above. It is an aftermarket filter I believe

Also, I have a kenmore elite? Why would I buy an LG filter?
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year 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.
