Too filter housing

I cannot get the filter canister off. I don't know if I cross threaded it or what. I opened a faucet and am using the tool if can with. Does anyone have any ideas?

After they've been seated in place for a while they can be difficult. Mine is the same way. Keep at it.

Once you get it off, lube it with Danco silicone paste on the O ring and it's mating surface on the canister.

Usually have super course threads. I highly doubt it's cross threaded, it would break before they got it seated.

Looking at it, turn left with wrench (looking from top, clockwise)

Try putting your hand under it and lifting up as you turn. You don't say what model you have, but some of them have teeth at the top to prevent them from unscrewing.

It is the FR1 that uses the KW1 filter.

Mine was really tight too. A strap wrench may be needed. Be sure to turn the right direction. Viewing from the top you turn clockwise.
