Knowing When to Replace Your Maytag UKF8001 Filter
To keep your family’s water flowing fresh and clean, it’s important to change your filter on a regular basis. The carbon in the filter will begin to separate after about six months of use and won’t catch each particle as effectively as when it was first installed. With this in mind, mark your calendar to replace that filter every six months. Think about ordering an extra filter to have one on hand, so you’ll be prepared when it’s time to change!
Simple Instructions for Installing Your New Water Filter
- Grasp the filter to be removed and gently turn it counterclockwise until it separates from the filter head.
- Place the new refrigerator filter into the head and turn it clockwise, rotating until it stops. Then close the cover.
- For about five minutes, let water run through the dispenser. This is the equivalency of about four gallons of water. The water at the end of this time should be running steady. Note that a one to two minute lag may occur during the initial use, as the internal water tank needs time to fill.
- Follow the directions in the owner’s manual to reset the water filter change notification.

“Seems a great replacement for the $48 filter in the stores. 3 filters for the price of one and a half in the store. No Brainer. This is our second set and we were so happy with the first set that we bought another set.” – Gregg C.
“Shipping was quick. Installation was exactly the same as the filters that are three times the price. Water tastes great. I have found these filters to be equivalent in every way and am very happy with my purchase. We are on a city well with heavy limescale so we go through filters at a speedy clip. Love to save a few bucks!” – William F.
