We have the Whirlpool...

We have the Whirlpool French door mount W10671505A refrigerator & cant get the water filter out to change it

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

Model W10671506A. Had it for about 3-1/2 years.

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

Yes

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

I have looked at You Tube but none look like our water filter. When turning counter clockwise, it is still in knotched groove

Can I send Picture on this site?

sue just send a photo attachment just like you would any other E-Mail

And have you tried using a pair of pliers to give added torque to get it out?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

ok so the filter is unlocked after you have turned it are you pulling on it to get it out?

Or just turning it and expecting it to come out from that point.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Both me & my husband pulled as hard as we could. It’s in that groove & is stopped by that tooth like extension. We did not apply a lot of strength with pliers for fear of busting the unit

okyou will either need to use more force or call for a in home service call to have a service person remove it for you.

Thank you in advance.
If you need me again for any other issues you can request me Master Tech.

And Even after you rate me Today if you have a question just reply back to me,
I will still assist you, no extra charges .
But rating me 5 STARS is the ONLY way I get paid for my time. I do not get compensated until you rate me. I'm sure you don't work for free, so please don't expect that I should.
