I have a Profile refrigerator-bottom freezer. the water

Customer Question
I have a Profile...

I have a Profile refrigerator-bottom freezer. the water filter light indicates it needs to be changed. the model calls for an RPFWE filter but the local hardware store only has RPFW filter. it the replacement looks very similar to the original can I use this filter?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

I can get it but it will take a moment

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes. the appliance is only six months old and this is the first time the replace filter indicator light has come on

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I will get the model info from the door now
