Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

I love my gss25lslrcss refrigerator and the filter does a good job and is easy to replace. My problem is that I purchased one through Amazon and it doesn't work. I put the old one back in and it works fine. I ordered another from Amazon and it also works fine. However, Amzon won't replace the bad one. Does it come with a warrantee from GE?

DOES NOT FIT!!!!

JACK 04aa 4/21/2022

MY GE Cafe French door has a XWF filter, after going on line and buying the WXFE ( which it clearly says replaces the XWF)...it does NOT fit!...I have had numerous appliance people try to get it in and it doesn't work! $50 bucks and a waste of money....the site does not show just a XWF, so I'm out of luck with just having to keep an expired filter....Wish there was 0 start!!

Water tastes terrible with these filters! NO stars

kittensNchickens 4/15/2022

We bought a new refrigerator in September 2021 that came with a water filter. The water from the original filter tasted fine. I bought new XWFE filters directly from GE and the water now has an awful metallic taste. It's unusable. I bought a pack of three filters. We completely flushed the first filter and have been using it for about a month but the water just tastes awful. I put a new filter in yesterday and flushed it well and the water still tastes awful. I work at home and drink water all day long so this is super frustrating. I wish there was another filter that I could try but I can't find an off-brand version that will work with this refrigerator. Honestly, it's undrinkable water using this filter. My tap water tastes better.

RFID Monopoly

GEproductssux 3/24/2022

Worst refrigerator I've ever own. The water come out in a trickle. Took 3 minutes to fill 2 quarts. Insult to injury, when time to change the water filter, expect to pay 2 to 3 times the cost of other brand filters. $50? who mines the carbon, unicorns? Don't think you can get away with generics, they chipped the filter to only work with theirs claiming "leak protection". What a bunch of malarky. I will never buy another GE product again.

Doloresrd 3/20/2022

Filter automatically alerts you after a period of time has lapsed, not whether the filter is dirty to replace it. You must use the $50 filter or the water dispenser will not work even though there are much less expensive filters capable of filtering the water. Planned obsolescence for an expensive part for an expensive refrigerator. Shame on you, GE

Was a direct replacement and after running the first couple of glasses of water through it, the water was clear. I've had problems with "discount" type replacement filters that continued to expel charcoal after the initial installation and purge. This doesn't. Once it's installed and you run the required amount of water, the rest is clear.

Filter defective

defective1953 3/9/2022

I ordered the correct filter, but for one the arrow did not match the part that fit into the filter holder. The filter was defective,and didn't fit in the holder no matter how hard I tried. I called GE and they told me they would credit me for the filter $50.93. That was 2/21/22. On 3/4/22 I called again because I didn't receive a credit on my credit card. They said they made a mistake and my card wasn't credited even though their notes showed that my card was credited. Today, 3/8/22 I have been on hold for almost 25 minutes while the representative checks with the finance department. I'm ready to hang up. I have had it. Very, very frustrated. Would never order from GE appliance parts again. I found out that the place where I bought my refrigerator had the filter. The arrows matched up properly and it fit perfectly. I like GE appliances, but parts are another story.
