Customer Question
Kenmore 46-9930 filter stuck...

Kenmore 46-9930 filter stuck inside. WOn't come out

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

About 2-1/2 years old

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

I didn't expect it to be "work". Filter is supposed to pop out when the door is raised.

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

Not that I'm aware of.

Grab it with a channel locks and give it a pull often the orings just get stuck in place. Can you do that?

Tried that. Not enough to get a good hold of filter. They just tear it, but it won't budge.
