MWFAP Refrigerator Water Filters
Learn More About The MWFAP Filter
How To Install The MWF Filter:
The water filter cartridge is located in the back upper right corner of the refrigerator compartment. The filter cartridge should be replaced when the replacement indicator light turns red or if the flow of water to the dispenser or icemaker decreases. For refrigerators without an indicator light - replace the filters every 6 months.
- Remove old filter cartridge by grasping and turning to the left about 1/2 turn
- Fill the replacement filter with water from the tap to allow for better flow immediately after installation
- Place the top of the new cartridge up inside the cartridge holder
- Slowly turn the filter until the filter cartridge stops. Do not over tighten. As you turn the cartridge it will automatically raise itself into position. The cartridge will move about 1/2 turn
- Run water from the dispenser for 3 minutes (about 1-1/2 gallons) to clear the system and prevent sputtering
- Press and hold reset water filter button if your fridge has one

All of our filter offerings provide fresh, clear water, keeping you safe from harmful contaminants. The aftermarket EcoAqua EFF-6013A and ClearChoice CLCH102 is a high quality and cost effective filter that uses renewable carbon. Our aftermarket filters are guaranteed to fit any fridge ready to accept an MWF style filter. All OEM and aftermarket MWF filters reduce chlorine taste, chlorine odor and improve ice clarity. The original OEM GE MWF filter has been NSF Standard 42 and 53 certified. This means that it meets standards for water purification in chlorine, lead, cysts, turbidity, and other chemicals; the aftermarket filters have not met such standards, however are a great cost saving alternative to the OEM model.
NSF/ANSI Standard 42
Filters tested against NSF/ANSI Standard 42 (aesthetic effects) are certified to reduce specific aesthetic or non-health-related contaminants (chlorine, taste and odor, and particulates) that may be present in public or private drinking water. See filter performance data sheet or manufacturer's packaging for details.
NSF/ANSI Standard 53
Filters tested against NSF/ANSI Standard 53 (health effects) are certified to reduce specific health-related contaminants, such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia, lead, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether), etc., that may be present in public or private drinking water. See filter performance data sheet or manufacturer's packaging for details.
Filters Without NSF Ratings
Some filters that are not NSF rated are still constructed from NSF rated components.
Refrigerator Water Filter Tip #3:
When a new refrigerator filter is installed, there may be some sputtering and spitting of water while air is forced out of the filter media. This is normal and will stop after the carbon media becomes saturated with water.
