Your refrigerator water filter serves so many useful purposes, providing you and your family with clean, fresh-tasting, and clear water. To keep your water tasting great, you’ll want to replace your water filters regularly. The GSWF model filter fits a wide selection of models and comes in three styles. General Electric is the original equipment manufacturer. Its GE GSWF refrigerator filters are from its SmartWater line. Two other aftermarket filters are the ClearChoice CLCH112 and the EcoAqua EFF-6023A.
The OEM and aftermarket refrigerator water filters fit a number of recognizable name-brand fridges, including Amana, GE, Hotpoint, and Kenmore. Each comes in a set of three refrigerator filters.
What Do Filters Do?
Filters are an important tool to improving the taste and safety of your drinking water. The filter significantly reduces the levels of atrazine, chlorine taste and smell, dirt, lead, lindane, and organisms that can cause intestinal distress. The filter also reduces turbidity, or cloudiness, to help keep your water looking clear. The OEM GE GSWF has been tested and certified by NSF International, a global leader in independent testing of water filtration equipment.
How Long Will It Last?
How long your discount fridge filters will remain effective depends a great deal on usage volume. These filters work at temperatures from 33 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit and have a 300 gallon capacity at a flow rate of a half gallon per minute. It is recommended that you replace your refrigerator filters every six months.
How Do I Install The GSWF Filter?
Installation is simple and you’ll have your new filter operating in minutes by following these simple steps:
- Open the cartridge cover by pushing it in where indicated.
- Remove the old filter cartridge by slowly rotating to the left (counterclockwise). Do not pull down on the cartridge. Note: A small amount of water may drip down. Caution: If air has been trapped in the system, the filter cartridge may be ejected as it is removed. Use caution when removing.
- Position the new cartridge inside the cartridge holder and slowly rotate the cartridge to the right (clockwise) until it stops. The cartridge will rotate about 1/4 turn. When installed correctly, the grip blade on the end of the cartridge should be positioned vertically for top-freezer models and horizontally for bottom-freezer models. Do not overtighten.
- Close the cartridge cover.
- Reset filter change indicator if your refrigerator has one.
- Flush 1.5 gallons (approximately 3 minutes) through the filter before use. This will clear the system and prevent sputtering. Note: A newly installed water filter cartridge may cause water to spurt from the dispenser.
These discount fridge filters are compatible with the following alternate or obsolete filters:
