BEWARE OF COUNTERFEIT FILTERS
on December 6, 2015
We just bought this replacement filter for our Whirlpool fridge that uses the UKF8001 filter. As you can tell from the pictures, the original filter we are replacing almost looks identical to the fake one.
- the threading of the fake filter at the top is not beveled on the underside like the original, so it does not fit or lock in place.
- the filter is made of cheap plastic material, which you can kind of tell from the picture- fake one is shiny cheap plastic, original is made of higher quality matte-like plastic
- the fake one is also slightly shorter than the original, so it doesn't clip in properly in the back.
- you can even tell from the sticker tag, the fake one is printed cheaply, hard to read, and has typos (circled in red)
THIS FAKE FILTER WILL NOT FIT AND WILL NOT WORK. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT UNTIL AMAZON VERIFIES THAT SELLERS ARE NOT SELLING COUNTERFEIT MAYTAG PRODUCTS.
