Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I replace my GE refrigerator water filter?

Generally, it is advisable to change the refrigerator water filter in your GE fridge every 6 months. Manufacturers will often publish a statement like "change filter every 500 gallons or 6 months, whichever comes first". We find that changing the filter at 6 months ensures that the filter is still doing its job at the time of change-out keeping your water tasting great.

What does "certification" mean on a refrigerator water filter for a GE refrigerator?

A filter certified to a particular quality standard will have undergone extensive testing to ensure the product's safety and quality. Common certification standards for refrigerator water filters are NSF/ANSI 42, which relates to reduction claims for chlorine taste and odor (aesthetic effects) and NSF/ANSI 43, which relates to reduction claims for over 50 contaminants, including lead, cysts, VOC and many others (health effects).

How do I find the correct water filter for my GE refrigerator?

Use our filter finder utility to find your filter based on the brand and appearance of your fridge. To find your filter quickly - type model number of your refrigerator into the search box on our site. The model number is usually listed on the door or inside wall of the refrigerator. If you have the existing filter - simply type the part number into the search box on our site.

Will a refrigerator water filter for my GE refrigerator disinfect the water?

No, a refrigerator water filter's main purpose is to improve the taste and smell of your water and ice, it will not disinfect the water or render clean water from water that is microbiologically unsafe. Manufacturers assume that the water entering the refrigerator is potable and safe to drink.


Refrigerator Water Filters

GE Refrigerator Filters

GE was one of the first manufacturers to include a integral water filtration system with their refrigerators. The original MXRC filter was made of metal and looks nothing like the filters of today. Here are the different refrigerator filters that you are likely to use in your GE refrigerator

  • For years the MWF was the most popular filter from GE - and fit in the upper right hand corner of side-by-side and bottom freezer refrigerators
  • The less-popular MSWF filter is located in the back upper right corner of the refrigerator compartment of side-by-side and bottom freezer refrigerators
  • The less-popular GSWF filter is located in the back upper right corner of the refrigerator compartment of top-freezer and bottom-freezer refrigerators
  • Newer refrigerators often use the XWFE filter, which replaced the XWF filter. It is compatible with side-by-side and bottom-freezer refrigerators and is installed in the upper right corner of the refrigerator compartment or in a compartment built into the refrigerator door
  • Another common filter in newer refrigerators is the RPWFE filter (replaced the RPWF). It is found in most new French door refrigerators in the top left hand corner of the fresh food interior or within the left refrigerator door

Largest Selection

We have the largest selection of refrigerator water filters in all the top brands (including compatible versions at a value price). Replacing your refrigerator water filter regularly is an important and easy step in your home's maintenance routine. We recommend installing a new refrigerator water filter at least once every 6 months. Replacing your old refrigerator water filter will reduce unwanted taste and odors from tap water. 

Tested & Certified

We carry big name brands like EveryDrop®, GE®, Frigidaire®, Samsung®, LG® and more. These filters are tested and certified to meet or exceed NSF/ANSI standards for the reduction of common contaminants from your drinking water. DiscountFilters also offers compatible brands - designed to offer a great combination of performance and value.

Cleaner, Better Tasting Water

Using advanced activated carbon technology, our filters will improve the quality of the water used for drinking and ice-making. Over time - water filters will become less effective at capturing contaminants, and this is when we recommend replacing your filter. We recommend a new filter every six months for optimal water drinkability and flow.
