When to Replace Your Water Filter

Knowing when to replace the water filter in your LG refrigerator is crucial for maintaining the quality of your drinking water. LG recommends replacing your water filter approximately every six months, or more often if you notice a decrease in water flow or a change in taste.

Step-by-Step Replacement Instructions

Replacing the water filter in your LG refrigerator is a simple process that you can do in just a few minutes. Follow these steps to ensure proper installation:

  1. Locate the Filter: Find your LG refrigerator’s water filter. It could be located in the refrigerator’s interior, at the base, or in the upper right corner.
  2. Remove the Old Filter: Turn the old filter counterclockwise until it releases, then gently pull it out.
  3. Install the New Filter: Remove the protective cap from the new filter, insert it into the slot, and turn it clockwise until it locks into place.
  4. Flush the System: Dispense water for about 5 minutes to remove any trapped air and contaminants from the new filter.

Resetting the Filter Indicator

After replacing the water filter, it’s important to reset the filter indicator light so it can accurately track when the next filter change is due. Press and hold the filter button on your LG refrigerator for 3 to 5 seconds until the indicator light turns off.
