Can I use Rpwfe instead of Rpwfe?

The GE RPWFE filters are different than the RPWF filters. If your refrigerator specifically requires the RPWFE filter you will not be able to use the old RPWF cartridge, or an aftermarket replacement for the RPWF.

Likewise, people ask, what is the difference between GE water filter Rpwfe and Rpwfe?

The difference between RWPF and RPWFE is that the RPWFE has a freaking RFID chip on it. The fridge reads the RFID chip off your filter, and if your filter is either older than 6 months or not a genuine GE RPWFE filter, it's all “I'm sorry, Dave, I'm afraid I can't dispense any water for you right now.”

Beside above, is it really necessary to change your refrigerator water filter every 6 months? The truth is most people don't even know they need to change their refrigerator filter. Experts suggest you change your refrigerator water filter every 3-6 months. You'll live if you only change it annually, but your taste buds will thank you if you change it more often.

Similarly, you may ask, what is a Rpwfe water filter?

The genuine OEM GE RPWFE refrigerator water filter is an NSF certified, new replacement for the GE RPWF. RPWFE will work with any refrigerator that currently uses GE's RPWF or RPWFE filters. It is used in select GE french-door refrigerators.

Why are fridge filters so expensive?

The same reason printer cartridges are so expensive—you are locked into a proprietary design, so you need to buy the branded replacement item. They charge so much because they can, and they want to make money. You can try to find a generic replacement filter that fits.
