Locate your water filter (usually attached to the rear of the appliance) then you will also need to isolate the water supply to the filter.

.... Disconnect the pipes by pushing the collet (usually dark grey/red) of the fitting in while pulling the pipe outward, repeat this on both ends of the water filter or Check valve if fitted, you can discard the check valve as the new filter will come with one.
NOTE: remember which tube is the from your isolation tap and which goes to your appliance !
Use your thumb nail to push the collet square against the fitting. With the collet held in position the tube can be removed.
