    Answer This Question

    A:  We appreciate you leaving your feedback with us. This filter does not change the taste of your water. We do recommend that you have your water tested by your local water company to determine what is causing your water to have this taste. This test will allow you to know what will help moving forward.

          Replaced with “genuine” part.
          XWFE genuine replacement filter doesn’t work. Filter Status = ERR. Works if I put the old one back in. Looks identical to the one I am trying to replace and is the filter per the manual for GFE26JYMWFFS
          Response from GE_AppliancesApr 29, 2024
          We want to help out with getting your filter replaced. We suggest trying to reseat the filter and then performing an electronic reset. This can be done by removing the power cord for 30 seconds and then plugging it back in. Also, remember to flush the filter of any trapped air, by holding down the dispenser for 2 to 3 minutes.
            It looks good . I have not used it yet. I plan to use it later this year!

              I do not like that this filter use a sensor activated by the time is installed, it does not matter if in the house are 5 people or 2 people, which make a big difference on the amount of water gallons consumed. Other filters' fridge I have used, always do the gallons counting by consumption, not by installation date.

                My GE fridge water filter
                The water tastes great with the GE XWFE water filter!
                  This Filter No Longer Fits
                  Like other reviewers, I went to HD to purchase a new XWFE filter, only to get home and realize that the tops of the filters are no longer the same. The original filter has a smooth top, so you can easily align the arrows of the filter to your refrigerator and twist it. The filters have changed and are now "ridged", meaning you cannot simply pop the filter in. I took it back, and the employees at HD actually argued about the difference and had no solution! So now I'm stuck with an old filter.

                  We hate to hear that you're having an issue with your filter. We would like to do everything possible to assist with this situation. Please PM/DM us on Facebook or Instagram with a copy of your review, pictures if available, and the model/serial numbers of your fridge so we can investigate further. GE_Appliances

                      XWFE didn’t fit my 2021 GE
                      Tried and tried to get the new filter with the slots to work but gave up when I felt like I was going to break something. Very disappointed. You say in order reviews that it will go but it does not. So what’s the alternative? Keep using the old filter I guess.

                        Water Filter Cartridge replacement
                        I received my order of my new water filter from GE. It is working great. I do love the feature of my fabulous GE Profile 5 drawer, French door refrigerator that notifies me when the filter cartridge needs replacing. There is a fantastic YouTube video of exactly how to replace the filter. I recommend anyone to watch it for that first cartridge change.
