You will be paying me for my ANSWER to your Appliance Question,, Not for the repair of your appliance hence the name of this site Just Answer.
I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.

If you have a pair of vice grips grab a hold of the filter and force it loose, that`s about all you can do.

After it is all said and done you may have to replace the filter housing and install another new filter.
