In this video, we show you how to replace a water filter in a refrigerator where you open a tray, then twist the filter to remove it.

A refrigerator water filter removes contaminants and impurities from water. Over time, as more impurities are trapped, the water filter becomes less efficient. Most manufacturers recommend you replace the water filter every 6 months; more frequently if you notice the water flow slowing.

These instructions work for water filter part numbers 5231JA2006E, 9082, 9084, 9130, EDR2RXD1, EDR4RXD1, W10574143, GSWF, 13040210, 00640565, 00740570, ADQ73613401 and AGF80300805. If you're not sure which water filter fits your fridge, check out our refrigerator water filter finder.
