How to Change the Filter on an LG Refrigerator


LG refrigerator water dispensers provide filtered water through a dedicated water line. The filters remove excessive minerals and contaminants from the water, making it safer to drink. The filter in LG refrigerators are effective for a long period of time, depending on usage. Eventually the filter will wear down and provide lower quality filtration. To ensure the quality of your drinking water, change an LG refrigerator water filter at least every 6 to 8 months.

Things You'll Need

  • Replacement filter
  • Cup
  • Locate the water filter in the top left corner of the refrigerator. The filter is located in the small tube with the hole in the bottom.

  • Hold a cup under the hole and turn the filter handle counterclockwise. A small amount of water will drain into the cup through the hole.

  • Slide the cartridge out of the tubing and dispose of it in a waste receptacle.

  • Remove the replacement filter from its packaging and take off all of the protective coverings.

  • Push the replacement filter into the filter holder with the handle positioned vertically.

  • Grip the handle and turn it clockwise until it clicks in place.

  • Run water through the dispenser for two minutes to clear any air in the water line.
