Can't remove refrigerator filter DA29-00003G

On my refrigerator (model RSG257AARS/XAA) we can't pull down the old DA3-00003G filter to put in a new one. We can twist it clockwise and counterclockwise but it won't release downward. This filter is too large for channel lock pliers as suggested for other filters. Help!
