Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Below are the instructions for that model to remove the water filter. You may already have those instructions, the issue is sometimes the water filter can become vapor locked due to pressure on the system, so try letting pressure off the system first by letting water run out of the dispenser for 2 minutes before hand. If your model does not have a dispenser, then you may need to turn off your water supply to the refrigerator and disconnect the water supply line on your home from the valve on the back of the refrigerator and remove the water line going to the ice maker from the valve as well to let pressure off. If after trying that the filter still will not come out then the water filter head has jammed and the water filter housing will have to be replaced.
