My code not work. How to correct code?

function filter_where( $where = '') {
      $where .= " AND wp_comments.comment_date < '" . date('Y-m-d H:i:s') . "'";
add_filter( 'pre_get_comments', 'filter_where' );

enter image description here

Sorry for My English.

The problem is you're not using the action hook at all in the proper way. You'll want to create date_query parameters and add this to the comment query.

Here is what you can do to achieve this so that only comments created before "right now" are queried:

add_action( 'pre_get_comments', function ( $commentQuery ) {
    $commentQuery->query_vars[ 'date_query' ] = [
            'before' => current_time( 'mysql' ),
} );
