Supplies and Tools:
General Electric® M.S.W.F. refrigerator filter 
Large narrow water container

Mrs. Marie Antoinette purchased a new 2010 General Electric® refrigerator. She had been traveling and had barely used the refrigerator and she had turned it off when she was out of town. 

This post shows the nine steps to replacing the General Electric interior filter. 

Step 1: Fig.1 above right shows the filter and the box, and fig.2 shows the refrigerator filter light (green) had come on and she wanted the filter replaced.

Step 2: Open the door and removed the old water filter by twisting the filter counter clockwise.
Step 3: Below in fig.3 shows the water filter cap and in fig.4 shows how to place the filter cap into the filter area. This prevents air from entering the refrigerator water lines.

Step 4: In fig.5 shows the filter below still has the foil on the top of it and this filter is safe to use in the refrigerator. Some filter when purchased have loose filter foil and thus might have been used in another refrigerator.

Step 7: Fig.9 the filter is ready to be used.

Step 8: Now get a large narrow container and use the refrigerator water dispenser until all the air is removed from the refrigerator line. 
Step 9: You would think that after all this these steps the job would be done, but its not. Notice on the refrigerator the light is under a button. To stop the light from being on, press on the light for thirty seconds and the light will turn itself off. Now Mrs. Marie Antoinette can have a nice cold glass of clean water from her refrigerator.
