Hi, welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having appliance trouble, I know how frustrating that can be! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!
Is it just not turning in or what is it doing?
Is it a style that pushes in to lock or a 1/4 turn style filter?
Have you removed the protective caps from the filter ends?
It is probably not pushed in far enough. If by pushing in a bit harder it will not lock in and turn, the filter housing's valve is probably faulty.
