Changed filter but now water is not coming out of the dispenser. Installed filter correctly per pictures. What could be the problem?

You will have air in the system after changing the filter. Make sure you did turn the water on. Run the water dispenser until water pushes the air out. Run the water until it clears.

Opened the filter door but the filter did not eject. Any troubleshooting advice on how to remove the filter?

You'll want to rotate the filter counterclockwise until it pops out.
