Customer Question
I', trying to change...

I', trying to change the water filter in my Whirlpool French Door fridge, but the used filter won't release.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The fridge is about 5 years old. The model number is *****

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

Yes. I've changed the filter before with no problem.

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

I'm following the instructions ... that is, turning the filter counter-clockwise, but it doesn't release.
