The Maytag water filter model UKF8001 is a high-quality filter that is used with a number of refrigerator brands, including models by Amana, Maytag, KitchenAid, Whirlpool, and Kenmore. These filters remove contaminants that can be present in municipal or well water, including dirt and sand, rust, cysts, lead, and the taste and smell of chlorine. Using Maytag refrigerator water filters in your home gives you healthier, better tasting water and ice.
We carry two refrigerator water filters in the UKF8001 style - the OEM filter by Maytag, and the aftermarket EcoAqua EFF-6007A. The Maytag UKF8001 has been certified to meet NSF standards 42 and 53 for its ability to remove chlorine, sediment, sand, rust, and other impurities from your water. The EcoAqua EFF-6007A is a high-quality aftermarket alternative, and comes with a one year satisfaction guarantee. While providing excellent filtration and great-tasting water, the EcoAqua model sells at a considerable discount and is our recommended model.
