1. Locate existing filter and remove it by turning it counter clockwise as shown in the graphic.
2. Holding new filter in your hands, carefully remove the packaging and sanitary end-cap from the new filter.
3. Apply slight upward pressure and rotate the filter clockwise. Ensure filter is fuly installed in refrigerator head a full 1/4 turn. This is required to activate the internal valve inside the refrigerator. If the filter is not turned a full 1/4 turn the valve will not fully open and may cause the water flow to be slow, or even cause the valve to make a chattering noise during use.
4. Dispense water into glass looking for good water flow. If flow is slow, remove and reinstall filter ensuring that the filter is a full 1/4 turn.
NOTE: Initial (low rale may be slower than expected, Full flow rate should be restored within 24-36 hours.
5. Check filter one more time for any leaks.
6. Run water from the dispenser for 5 minutes at .5 gpm (about 2.5 gallons) to clear the system and prevent sputtering.
- Save Big with this filter by Waterdrop!
- By krmorris on 12/23/2017
Works just like the Samsung Filters and it costs
$30.00 less! I have used this brand for 2 years and never had a problem! Good Buy!
- I strongly recommend it.
- By moni on 12/18/2017
- It works very well. I was buying those "originals"expenses filters before, but this one is the same. I strongly recommend it.
- Fraction of the cost!
- By Mike on 12/14/2017
- Seems like the exact replacement for the Samsung at a fraction of the cost. Seems to filter the water the same too. I cut my samsung filter in half to check out the materials used inside the filter. When this filter is replaced I will do the same and write another review on my findings.
- Soooo Much Easier to Install than previous filter used
- By Kelly on 12/6/2017
- Sooooooo much easier to install than the aqua pure filters that were supposed to have been made for our refrigerator (yes we checked to make certain we had the correct number) . This went in so easily I was concerned it hadn't thread correctly but it has been working great and no leaking.
- Great Copycat Filter
- By Sheryl Bonin on 10/22/2017
- After paying $50 a pop at Lowe's for filters, I ordered this one recently. It looks and operates exactly like the Samsung ones. I am buying these from now on!!!
- Samsung water filter replacement.
- By smilegirl on 10/21/2017
- I really, really like this as a replacement for the much more expensive Samsung item. I can buy four for the price of one of theirs. I had read the reviews of others who said they had leak issues so it was an experiment for me. I have had no issues in installing or leaking. I am glad to be able to save a good deal of money.
- A perfect fit. Have not encountered any issues
- By BlueMan on 10/14/2017
- A perfect fit. Have not encountered any issues. Water tastes as expected and I think it's even better than the competitor. For the price, I would buy again.
- Exactly like the Samsung replacement
- By Marcy on 10/11/2017
- Exactly like the Samsung replacement. is supposed to last a year which is 2x as long as the Samsung filter. I am anxious to see if this holds true. So far good quality for a better price. Fast delivery.
- starsGood substitute at a much better price.
- By Lynne E. on 10/9/2017
- I installed this the other day, and it seems an exact duplicate of the brand name. The water came out readily from the dispenser. I usually get some black particles out with the Samsung, but it did not happen with this.
- Great Replacement for Samsung Filters
- By R. K. Oconnor on 9/19/2017
- The Waterdrop replacement filter is configured exactly like the Samsung filters I have always purchased in the past. It installed smoothly, doesn't leak, and is much less expensive than the Samsung filters.
- Great Filters!
- By BartonS on 9/4/2017
- These are awesome! Half the price of the brand name & work better! The flow of the water has more power & so does the ice. The water has no closing taste at all. We're really happy with these & will continue to buy them as long as they are available.
- Works great, much less expensive than name brand
- By EsqTitling on 8/30/2017
- These fit perfectly and seem to work great. They are substantially less expensive than the name brand, and I'm not sure that there is really any difference between them (although I could be wrong).
- Just as good, if not better, than Samsung OEM filters
- By K. Fritzsche on 8/23/2017
- This is the second one of these that we've bought to replace the Samsung OEM filter - and by that, I mean that the first one we bought has reached the point of replacement after six months of excellent service. The price of the OEM filters keeps climbing, and we were looking for a more affordable alternative. We initially bought this filter based on the positive reviews, and it did not disappoint. The filter has performed admirably (the filtered water tastes great!), and has lasted just as long as the OEM filters we used to buy. Waterdrop knows what they're doing, and that's why we're back for another filter from this company.
- I bled the air out of the lines after installation just like the originals
- By Clayton Allen on 8/22/2017
- Installed a week ago. The filters are identical in physical appearance to the OEM cartridges. I bled the air out of the lines after installation just like the originals. The water and ice from the filter have no odor or unusual taste. Only time will tell if they last six months like the Samsung filters do. If performance is the same, these are quite a bargain in comparison.
- Perfect replacement.
- By Xklybur on 8/15/2017
- Perfect fit and a lot less than ordering from Sears or Samsung. Had no issues whatsoever. I'm going to add this to my subscription since it's due for replacement every 6 months.
- starsBetter than official Samsung filter
- By blaincorrous on 8/2/2017
- Great filter. Requires less flushing than official, and subjectively speaking, the water tastes better than official too.
- Loose fit but works!
- By Lynnelle Dellinger on 8/1/2017
- It seems to work but concerned over the fit, the name brand felt secure, this fit feels very loose, like it could drop or spill. However, it is working and not spills. Hope it stays that way because this price ROCKS!
- Finally one that fits.
- By Laura on 7/22/2017
- There was a change made to the design of this water filter so it is hit and miss on if it will fit in my fridge and have had to return many filters due to the change. This one however works and fits perfectly! I will be buying this again and has a great price too! My fridge is the RFG297 series by Samsung.
- Work as well as the overpriced OEM filter but at a substantial savings
- By MikeSp on 7/7/2017
- Very little to say other than these filters seem to work as well as the overepriced filters from the manufacturer of my refrigerator -- making them a bargain.
- starsWater filter fits Samsung perfectly
- By Dyenamic on 7/4/2017
- Easy to install with no modifications in my Samsung fridge. Too soon to tell the quality, but so far so good and it seems to be doing its job. Shipping was fast and they have great customer service.
- It works.
- By IncredibleHat on 6/22/2017
- It works in my samsung fridge. Not much else to say, as a filter is a filter unless it doesnt fit or filter!
- Just as Good (If not better) and Saves you $$$
- By jayzay83 on 6/4/2017
- I am convinced that these are just as good as the name brand filters for my Samsung refrigerator. I am glad that I gave this filter a chance because it will save me over $60 a year.
- Works great.
- By Dena on 5/26/2017
- Fit into the fridge and totally changed the taste of our water. Much improved.
- Good product, good price.
- By Pearl on 5/20/2017
- We did some research on different filter models. The reviews on this one were very good. After we received the filter my husband installed it. No problems. Working great with no problems.
- Great filter at fraction of the cost
- By odessit40 on 5/17/2017
- Water tastes even better than the original (overpriced) Samsung filter. Takes a day or two to remove air bubbles within the fridge's hoses, but other than that, great product.
- Good filter
- By Iowan1988 on 5/11/2017
- trying this brand as it is much less expensive than the one marketed to use with the Samsung brand. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I've only been using it a short time.
- Bargain Filter
- By MediaProf on 4/27/2017
- This replaces a Samsung filter that is more expensive. Loads and works just as the Samsung. This filter is a bargain and functions just as advertised.
- Fit perfectly, no issues
- By Sandy on 4/19/2017
- I was worried after reading some of the reviews, thinking this filter may not fit correctly in our frig. We have Samsung model RF267ABRS and had no issue with this filter fitting in place. It fit just like the OEM filter that is now doubled in cost since last year. So far so good!
- Great Replacement Filter
- By Avidreader on 4/18/2017
- What a great alternative to the $50 filter were bought then returned after receiving this. Perfect fit and NO problems. Highly recommend purchasing this product.
- crisp, clear water at an affordable price
- By Teh_Nessa on 3/31/2017
- For an inexpensive filter, this product has done a great job so far. The water running through it comes out clear and crisp, without the vaguely chlorine smell that usually emanates from the local tap water. This filter was simple to install and takes less than a minute to replace. I will be purchasing this product again when it comes time to replace the current one.
- it is a great bargain. Although I was a little skeptical
- By Bluffdad on 3/30/2017
- If this continues to perform as it is now, it is a great bargain. Although I was a little skeptical, the filter fits without issue, the water is polished and has no scent or taste, and the flow is good. Our city water has an unpleasant taste and sometimes smells of chlorines. It is considerably less expensive than the genuine Samsung filter. It seems a smart purchase.
- Great Filter for a GREAT price!!
- By Ralph DiGiacomo on 3/15/2017
- I was skeptical at first because the price was so much lower than the Samsung filter but after installing it yesterday I have to say that I am impressed! This filter works as good or maybe even better than the Samsung filters that cost so much more. Finally, a cost effective alternative!!
- Great water filter for a better price!
- By V. Pitts on 3/14/2017
- This was my second time purchasing this brand of water filters for my refrigerator. They work just as good as the original brand that came with the fridge - for about half the price. That install just as easily and last just as long. I am very happy with the product!
- Leaked. Had to use the old o-rings
- By bskousen on 2/28/2017
- The product looked like the original, but was much less expensive. When I first installed the filter, it started leaking within a few minutes. It wasn't a gushing leak, but small drops of water like a leaky faucet. I removed the filter and applied an o-ring lubricant on the o-rings. The leaks stopped for two days, but then started up again. I then removed the two o-rings and used the o-rings from the old filter. It's now been two days and no leaks. I will update this review if it starts leaking again. My advice is to use a very small amount of silicone lubricant on the o-rings to help prevent leaks. Also, keep the original o-rings just in case it starts leaking with the included o-rings.
- no point in spending more
- By J. McCoy on 2/20/2017
- Seems like a perfect replacement for the name brand filter. I will never go back to paying more for a genuine Samsung filter after using this one.
- Great replacement for OEM filter
- By Valley Handyman on 2/19/2017
- When we purchased a Samsung refrigerator I was shocked at the $40.00 cost for the replacement water filter. When I saw the Waterdrop filter on-line, I was wasn't sure it would work because of all the "warnings" from Samsung about not using their OEM replacement filters. But at a third of the Samsung price I gave it a try. It fits and functions exactly like the original filter. I would highly recommend this product.
- So far so good!
- By Christine on 2/16/2017
- This filter works very well. I will purchase this brand again. The price is right for something that needs to be replaced every few months. I've tried other off brands. This is ia first time with this one and it to be the best. My water is clear and refreshing.
- It's a water filter that fits like the OEM part
- By CLTGUY on 2/3/2017
- It's a water filter! Installs like OEM and who knows if there is a taste difference?
- starsI recommend this
- By happycamper on 1/30/2017
- Everything came as expected and it seems to be doing its job. I recommend this filter
- Don't break the bank.
- By D. Lindsey on 1/13/2017
- The appliance manufacturers would love for you to make them rich with high priced replacements. No need! This is a great filter at a great price. Thanks.
- Oder came so quickly
- By Roie on 1/8/2017
- Just what we needed. Arrived very quickly - in two days! We ordered two - one for next time and one to use right now. It was easy to replace in the refrigerator.
