Customer Question
I recently bought a...

I recently bought a new filter for my GE french door, bottom freezer refrigerator. I bought a GE brand filter RPWFE for it. I have been trying for several days now to get it in and it just won't go in. I compare it to the old filter and it is just slightly different on top. I read online where GE had just recently redesigned those filters so now I am wondering if I will ever get it in. I have watched tutorial videos too, and no luck. They make it look easy and it is just NOT being easy. Any suggestions?

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

I have had it about 21/2 years now-bought in February 2015. It is a GFE29HGDHWW

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

I've been trying

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

I don't know that there is a way to send a pic of the 2 filters.
