This filter was a snap to install, and once I did my water pressure from the dispenser was back to normal. If you've
got a refrigerator that uses one of these filters and the water's been coming out slow then it's probably time for a new filter. One word of advice: use a big water pitcher for the first use of the dispenser after the filter change - the pressure has to readjust and it will spit out a few huge blasts of water that will overwhelm your normal water glass. After the couple of big blasts though, you get constant good pressure, better than you remembered was even possible after the gradual slow down with your old filter.

Lots of reviews on this site refer to the confusion regarding this replacement filter (UKF8001), so here are my observations on two matters:
1.) Which filter are we getting (750 Gallons vs 200 Gallons, etc) when we buy UKF8001?
2.) How frequently should we change it?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Gallon Capacity Rating ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
* Like everyone else, my box lists two different capacities (750 Gallon Rating & 200 Gallon Rating)
* Underneath each gallon rating it says the number of contaminents reduced (12 & 17 respectively)
* As others have shown in their photos, immediately below that, it lists a number of contaminents, with a checkmark as to whether the filter for that gallon rating filters each of the contaminents.

Note that for the 750 Gallon rating, contaminents reduced is 12 and chlorobenzene is not checked.
Note that for the 200 Gallon rating, contaminents reduced is 17 and cholorbenzene IS checked.

Now, here's the key observation. On the front of my box it says in a bright pink callout "Reduces 12 contaminents..."

Note that it does not say 17 contaminents, but 12. Also it does not mention chlorobenzene.

From this I take it that UKF8001 filter that I received is rated 750 gallons, and does not filter chlorobenzene.

I assume that if the filter were rated for 200 gallons and filtering chlorobenzene, then the box would be labeled on the front as filtering 17 contaminents, but I cannot prove this. I would be interested in hearing if anyone else has a box that has such a designation on the front to see how their box differs.

This filter is rated at 750 gallons capacity. If the consumer uses one gallon of water per day in the form of water from the refrigerator dispenser and ice from the ice dispenser, the filter will last 750 days; i.e., just over TWO years. In general, there is no reason to replace the filter yearly, unless you have a really yuccky water source.

In a small household of two adults, the filter should last considerably longer than two years. Furthermore, with the addition of a filtered water dispenser at the sink (such as a GE undercounter unit), the refrigerator filter would be functional for a few years. The undercounter units have a quite large capacity and some use two filter cartridges.

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.

Differences:
- 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.

This water filter produces great tasting water! I have always been a fan of Pur water filtration systems, so with this filter you get the great taste of Pur filtered water right out of your refrigerator. It lasts about 1 year and then a red light on the refrigerator comes on indicating that it is time to swap out the water filter. To be honest, the water didn't really taste bad at the year marker, so you might be able to get the filter to last longer than that. Can't say for sure, though, since we have always gone ahead and swapped it out anyways.

It is super easy to install. It depends on your refrigerator, but on our Maytag the filter is on the inside of the refrigerator in the top back right corner. You open the filter door by pushing in the tab. Then turn the filter counter-clockwise to unscrew it. The filter will have some remaining water in it, so make sure that you keep it tilted up or you will have some water to wipe up. The new filter comes in shrink wrap plastic, so you take that off and then peal off the seal that covers the top of the filter. Insert the new filter where the old one was and turn clockwise to tighten. Don't over tighten it. Just get it snug. You will hear water rush into the filter as you are screwing it in. Then close the filter door. Last thing is to let some water run through the lines to remove all the air. I took a 1 gallon jug and just let the water fill it up. The instructions recommend running 4 gallons through to make sure you removed all the air. I only did 1 gallon and it seemed to be more than enough. That's it! Now you can just sit back and enjoy some clean filtered water.

If you figure the price of buying bottled water vs. a new filter once a year, this is definitely a good deal at an average cost of about $2.50 a month.
