    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi - Thank you for reaching out to us. Yes, the XWFE does have a RFID chip that provides Leak-Detecting Sensing Technology which enables the refrigerator to shut down the water valve when a leak is detected at the filter. We do hope this is helpful. Kind regards - Vikki@GEA

        A:  Obviously it wasn’t a genuine GE filter!

          Q:Does the GE XWFE refrigerator water filters have a limited shelf life? I am hoping to buy 3 or 4 filters in a bundle and want to make sure the purchase or manufacture date has no limitations. I am guessing RFID triggers each filter only when installed

          A:  Hi - Thank you for reaching out to us. Refrigerator filters don't have a "use by" or expiration date. Unopened and unused filters do not have a limited shelf life as long as they are stored in a dry location. We are glad you checked on this. Kind regards - Vikki@GEA

            Discovered that the CORRECT "no ribs" filter is only shipped with the fridge that is labeled "Made in CHINA"... The REPLACEMENT filters that GE currently offers which are "ONLY with ribs" as a replacement and are labeled "Made in USA"... Well, they don't work and continue to show ERROR! Very DISAPPOINTING and I will no longer be recommending GE products to any of my RV customers!
            Response from GE_AppliancesJul 21, 2023
            Greetings. Thank you kindly for connecting with us and providing feedback on your refrigerator's water filter. We can certainly understand that when a part you are used to seeing suddenly changes, it can raise lots of questions. XWFE is indeed the correct filter for your PVD28BYNBFS. In early 2022 we changed the design of our XWFE filters, and they now have slots or spikes on the head. The new filter will still fit in the same spot as the old one with a little extra force needed to push it all the way in, and it is okay that the arrows may not line up completely. The error your seeing can be due to it not being set in place all the way. If you find that the error continues when setting the filter in correctly, please feel welcome to schedule an appointment with our technicians. You can schedule an appointment with a GE Appliances technician by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule online at https://www.geappliances.com/ge/service-and-support/service.htm It's a pleasure to have you as part of our GE Appliances team, always feel welcome to reach out if you need further help. -Haley@GEA
              Actually no, I am very disappointed with this filter. I followed the installation instructions but red filter light is still on. I took it out and reinstalled but the light remains on. Thinking I got a bad filter.
                Do not buy GE appliances! Fridges don't need DRM!
                The fact that you have RFID/NFC tags in your filters to prevent using cheaper alternatives, I will never buy another GE product. I hope others will do the same. Filters are way overpriced #gefiltergate

                Hello there! Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback. We are so sorry to hear that you are disappointed with our filters. We only approve the use of GE certified and manufactured filters in our appliances. We know water filters can become pricey, but you will save money by purchasing the 3-pack of filters opposed to single filters. You can view and purchase the 3-pack of filters at the link below. - Adrian@GEA https://www.geapplianceparts.com/store/parts/spec/XWFE3PK
                  Very easy to install. Didn’t even have to read directions to put it in. Shipping also was fast.

                    Easy to install. Pricey.
                    It was easy to install the product into the compartment. The price is high in my opinion. I don't think one needs to replace the filter every six months unless she uses the water and ice dispensers. The last filter I had for almost two years.
                      Unbelievably easy installation!
                      This filter is just what we needed for our GE refrigerator. We tried to buy it directly from GE, but they returned our check with no explanation, so we decided to go back to where we bought the appliance, and of course Home Depot had what we needed. The filter itself was incredibly easy to install. It literally took about 30 seconds to have the old one out and the new one in place. I do recommend filling a pitcher with water and pouring it out to flush the line after installing your new filter.

                        The filter labeled made in US has extra plastic on the top preventing to the filter to fit properly. Filters labeled made in China only work.

                          Top does not match
                          Look at this picture. The top with ridges does not fit. It is called XWFE. Why are there two designs for the same product? What is going on with this non-fitting ridge-appearing top that cannot be twisted to fit in place in a side-by-side refrigerator?
                          Response from GE_AppliancesFeb 18, 2022
                          Hey there. We understand the concern with the different filter tops and apologize for any inconvenience. Both versions of the XWFE filter are designed to fit into the space. If you're unable to insert the filter, you may need to have a service technician properly diagnose and repair the refrigerator. You can schedule service online at: https://www.geappliances.com/ge/service-and-support/service.htm or by calling GE Appliance Service at 1-800-GECares (1-800-432-2737) Monday – Friday: 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. ET or Saturday – Sunday: 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. ET.

                            Hi there - We're sorry to see you are disappointed with your water filter purchase. This is not what we want to hear and apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you. Please note, the black particles you are seeing are fine carbon particles left over from the manufacturing process. This is in no way harmful and does not prevent the filter from working. Once unwrapped and installed, we are confident you will enjoy its quality. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to us directly. We are always glad to help! -Shayla@GEA
