Hi all,

 

I have an LG lfx31925 refrigerator with the factory (oem) water filter. I've replaced twice before without problems, but this time the filter won't rotate back up into the housing.

 

I called LG and they couldn't figure anything out over the phone. I see nothing broken. The old filter won't go back in, either. I found a spring on the right side (as you face it) and tried to rotate the housing while pressing it. No luck.

 

Anything else I should try? The manifold just seems locked in place and I don't want to push too hard for obvious reasons.

 

Thanks,

Boz

Add a little *Food-Grade Silicone* to the O-rings...


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

Try installing the replacement Filter with *real effort*.

 

I've had a few that took more than a little force to seat/turn.

I just looked up a picture of it. Gotta wonder why they had to hinge it.
