GXWH20F Red Button Leaks

My GXWH20F filter started leaking from the red button just after my first filter change....can not get it to stop. I now see MANY similiar complaints on line but not soutions other than to try to keep pushing the button or put a bucket under the unit to catch the dripping water. UACCEPTABLE! Is there a solution or do I need to go buy a unit from a reputable company??

I love this forum. I have one of the older (2012) models and replace the filter every six months. This time, for the first time, I got the "red button leak" issue. It leaked for two days and I was about ready to purchase a new unit. Used the "twenty push" try along with the "spray canned air around the button" and guess what: no more leaking, and no more buckets. Thanks to all who posted.

how often do you have to change the cartridge?

Asked by: James
It depends on the quality of your water and the amount of sediment your water contains. You may need to change it once a year or you may need to change it every one, two or three months.

Whole Home Water Filtration System is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 137.

Installed this GE whole house filtration system yesterday at the same time I replaced my well water pressure tank and pvc plumbing in the well house. The housing on this unit leaks water around the outlet port. During installation the 3/4" pvc adapter with teflon tape applied to the threads screwed in almost all the way by hand and with the wrench applied the fitting never did tighten until it butted up against the housing. Applied three additional applications of teflon tape in an effort to build up and tighten the thread contact but this did not really help in the end, still drips. Am changing out this assembly tomorrow with a different one. Also, as stated by another commenter elsewhere the red pressure release button sprays water everywhere when pressed and is slow to reseal. Cannot recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Release valve leaks I should have listen to the reviews about the red release valve!!! The installation was a bit difficult given the location. The shutoff / bypass vale makes it very difficult to get a 3/4 wrench on the left side but I did get it installed. It worked great for one day but the next day I went to check for leaks and I accidentally hit the red release valve. I could NOT get it to stop leaking. One day usage!! So disappointed and frustrated. I was able to use the bypass valve to get the release valve to stop the leak until the next time I am at the house to install a different one.

Cartridge housing has picked up sulfur smells which are strong even after repeated cleaning and bleaching overnight. The rotten egg sulfur issue with my well has been resolved but the smell in the unit persists. This makes me think the polycarbonate formula they used isn't chemically stable and not likely the best choice for drinking water. I'd also assume this product is not BPA free.

Excellent that you can view the amount of sediment the filter is collecting. I don't know why anyone would install another filter where you can't see the sediment you are preventing from entering your water supply. Really Great Value! So far after only a week of use we are very satisfied with the performance of the filter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LEAKING RED BUTTON SOLUTION ahhh! the leaking red button ( read other reviews below for description of problem.) all over the net you will find reviews of how this product's red relief button starts leaking. for some reason HD does not list them. anyway, here's how i fixed it. take off the cartridge canister, like you were changing the filter. now get a can of that compressed air used for cleaning keyboards. hold the red button in while you spray the air into the channel that leads to that valve. I did it several times, stopping to push the red button many times, then hold it down and spray again. Finally, i got the dripping to stop. what a poor design that a simple ACCESSIBLE screen would have fixed. the filter part works great. the relief button design is terrible.

Very nice system; easy to install, does a great job, clear view of filter, remote tells you when to change filter, the bypass switch really nice that save the filler when you do not need to filter water. If you are looking for a great system you can not go wrong, GE has bigger systems also, and they all work the same. For my use this system was big enough.

This water filter worked fine until the clear filter housing cracked, I checked others have the same problem. Under normal house hold pressure of 50 to 70 psi the canister will crack and will flood your floor. So GE will no stand by the problem and don't offer a replacement so don't by it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from red pressure release valve leaks Owned the house 2 months so I do not know how old the GXWH20F filter is but after replacing the filter, the red pressure release valve is leaking all over. Moved the control handle to bypass position temporarily. Not a happy camper.
