Replacement Refrigerator Filters for 4396508
Water coming into your home may be contaminated with impurities such as chlorine, sediment, sand, rust, lead, mercury, cysts, and other pollutants that can affect the flavor, smell, and safety of the water you drink and cook with. A good water filter, like the Whirlpool 4396508 filter, helps protect your family from these impurities to give you healthier, better tasting water and ice.
The Whirlpool 4396508 water filter uses a block of activated carbon to capture impurities in the water - chemicals such as chlorine and mercury, particulates such as dirt, rust, and cysts, and other minerals such as lime or lead - and delivers clean, clear, healthy water to your refrigerator. This results in better tasting water and clear ice cubes for your enjoyment.
