Water tastes salty post installation. Water did not taste like that with previous factory installed filter. My tap water does not taste salty unfiltered. Probably would not buy again. Would purchase filter next time from an authorized GE dealer.

**UPDATE - Seller contacted me after this review and offered to send me a replacement filter, free of charge and free shipping. It arrived VERY quickly (within 3 days of the email). New filter works great, so the 1st filter problem must have just been a fluke. I would order from this seller again. Good product and great customer service.

All three replacement filters from FiltersFast exhibit issues. Poor water flow and squeal from inside the fridge. Replaced new filter with old one and all is fine. New filters are different on the insert - old ones had one large hole with multiple tiny holes around it. New ones have one large hole and two slotted holes on each side. All three new ones are lousy. Takes 45-60 seconds to fill a standard 8oz glass. Not acceptable. Called GE directly who said no change has been made to product line. Bought two more in town, one from Sears, another from HH Gregg. Both have the same design as the new ones from FiltersFast and are also lousy.

I have resorted to using the filter plug in order to have decent water flow. The filter design has obviously changed and either GE is not admitting to it or their representatives are ignorant to the change.

I hate my fridge now and currently using a Brita pitcher filter on the counter top. Neither Filtersfast, Sears or HH Gregg will accept a return. I'm now a proud owner of six new filters, over $200 in cost, that won't work worth a flip. Oh, and those of you who want to repeat what GE told me over the phone - yes, both the old filter with the tiny holes and the bypass plug work fine. There is NO clog in the water line. It's the lousy new filters that GE is pushing to all the vendors.

For the last 4 years, I've purchased this GE MSWF filter from Amazon without any issues, they had always had the best price and the filter worked like it should. Well this last one I got was a total dud. Followed the directions...filled filter with water, and installed in the fridge and very poor to no water would flow out. Also, the pump and water lines would make loud noises and vibrate when trying to dispense water. I disconnected the water lines and tested them in a bucket..no problems with the water supply flow. Disgusted, I bought another filter from a local big box store (H*me Dep*t) and this filter worked a little bit better..still makes noise sometimes and most of the time the flow is much less than the original filter I was trying to replace. I give Amazon 5 stars for their return policy - for which I returned my defective filter. I give GE ZERO stars for whatever they did to the design of this filter...it sucks! I am planning to replace my filter with a bypass plug the next time it needs to be changed. I also will never buy another GE appliance product.

I live in the Tucson, AZ area and our water is very hard. I test my water regularly out of the tap and it shows 240. I test the water out of my R/O system and it tests at 22. The water coming out of my ref with the GE filter which comes from the R/0 system is 20. I have the cleanest water in our neighborhood. The only issue I had was the GE filter took a couple of months to get back to "normal" testing range. When I fist installed it, the water tested at 40. Now that it's back to "normal" I'm pleased. Also the install was easy - reading the simple directions took longer that the install. You just twist off the old one and twist on the new one and then run about 5 gallons through the system.

I purchased this filter and you can see a very poor job where the filter appears to have been remanufactured. I have purchased several of these filters at Lowes and none were like this on. It has been cut at the top and even has plastic splinters remaining where it was seamed back together. The filter rattles as well. No more for me and I will pay a little extra and purchase from Lowes or Home depot from now on. It might work OK but I did not want a used cartridge and there was nothing in the description describing it as such.

After reading reviews that people posted regarding low water pressure after installation i was slightly leary. I have had no problems water pressure great, tastes great. People posting problems with water pressure probably do not have appropriate pressure to the appliance and or appliance has other issues. The filters are made by GE for GE.

This water filter does a good job and is cheaper through Amazon than at most stores (if the store even has it in stock!). How can you not order it since it is shipped free?

The G E Appliance Part, MSWFDS GE Replacement Water Filter, that we ordered was better service than the local big box facility. We knew the product we wanted and the service via ordering through Amazon.com was excellent. We received it in record time and our worries were over!! Outstanding "Customer Service", as usual.

Good price. Came quickly. Twisted right in and produced sparkling pure H2O. Now I can finally reset the red light to go back to green.

This is one of the more effective water filters I've used. It states 300 gallon service capacity. At least I've used them for over that amount without issue.

When you change filters, the flow acts funny for about the first half gallon - that's normal. Some filters produce cloudy-looking water for the first gallon, but this one doesn't. I've had no issues with these filters.

This is by far the simplest, most secure and easiest filter to install that I've experienced. Also, I didn't find a better deal anywhere else including the manufacturer's site. They try to sell these single by single, but sometimes in a pack of three.

It's just another filter to keep buying at its hefty price. But its easy to install.
