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

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I sent the type of filter above. It is an aftermarket filter I believe
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Also, I have a kenmore elite? Why would I buy an LG filter?
Expert:  Kelly replied 9 months 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 9 months ago.

That refrigerator is made by LG.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
