1. Locate existing filter and remove it by turning it counter clockwise as shown in the graphic.

2. Holding new filter in your hands, carefully remove the packaging and sanitary end-cap from the new filter.

3. Apply slight upward pressure and rotate the filter clockwise. Ensure filter is fuly installed in refrigerator head a full 1/4 turn. This is required to activate the internal valve inside the refrigerator. If the filter is not turned a full 1/4 turn the valve will not fully open and may cause the water flow to be slow, or even cause the valve to make a chattering noise during use.

4. Dispense water into glass looking for good water flow. If flow is slow, remove and reinstall filter ensuring that the filter is a full 1/4 turn.

NOTE: Initial (low rale may be slower than expected, Full flow rate should be restored within 24-36 hours.

5. Check filter one more time for any leaks.

6. Run water from the dispenser for 5 minutes at .5 gpm (about 2.5 gallons) to clear the system and prevent sputtering.



Customer Reviews

Our water authority supplies very good water. Review by Thomas W Pendleton
I replace my Maytag Frig (MFD2561HES) water filter based on the Frig's filter replace light (360 days).

At the one year mark, the Frig's electronics indicate that I have used about 25% of the 750 gallons that the Frig is programmed to expect. I have not had any problem with ice or cold water quality. Our water authority supplies very good water. (Posted on 8/21/2017)
This a great water filter to replace the PUR that is no longer available Review by AvidShopper
I was very pleased with this new water filter for my KitchenAid refrigerator. It is the perfect replacement for the PUR filter that is no longer available. The price was right, replacing the old filter was very easy to do. The filtered water & ice cubes have a nice fresh taste. I have already put in an order for a spare to keep in my kitchen drawer. (Posted on 8/19/2017)
Great pressure and taste! Review by KidChap
Happy so far so good! Great pressure, good taste, will order again, thank you Waterdrop!! (Posted on 8/14/2017)
Great Filter Review by mtamez720
We had put off changing our water filter on our Maytag refrigerator for too long and didn't realize just how much build up must have been in it because as soon as we put in the new filter the water pressure increased tremendously. The water tastes better as well. It was so easy to change out and such a great price. My only regret is not having bought this filter long before! (Posted on 8/7/2017)
000% better than drinking the tap water here Review by just bought this
Before changing the filter, we put aside a glass of water dispensed through the old filter. I then ran about three gallons of water through the Waterdrop filter. In a side by side taste comparison, the taste doesn't seem as clean as the ANSI 53 rated filter, but it's still 1,000% better than drinking the tap water here.

Of course, my wife thinks I'm crazy, and that there is no difference in taste, but she also thinks that soda made with sugar tastes the same as soda made with corn syrup. Pff... (Posted on 7/31/2017)
Five Stars Review by Stub
Very fast delivery with product being easy to install and works as it should. (Posted on 7/31/2017)
Works great. Our water was flowing very slowly Review by b s
Works great. Our water was flowing very slowly. After we put this new filter in the water flow was back to normal. The water tastes great too. (Posted on 7/15/2017)
Fantastic Filter Review by Gigi
I've used the brand filters and the big box store filters but this filter is much less and does not slow down the water flow. (Posted on 5/5/2017)
Price is great Review by wbrandon

Good price, good filter Review by Palomine

Five Stars Review by Devyn
Fits great (Posted on 5/3/2017)
good cheap alternative Review by Id
Seems to be doing its job. I replaced it and just like any other filter, I had to run a couple of glasses of water through the filter to clear it. Once that's done, water flow is very good, much stronger than previous filter. I do not have a PH meter but I do have a sensitive taste, and the water tastes the same as the original filter. (Posted on 5/1/2017)
Worth it! Review by mary3323
Wow! Perfect fit and great tasting water. So far I am impressed!! (Posted on 4/29/2017)

Just right Review by Michele T Castle
Works perfectly (Posted on 4/26/2017)
works Review by Sharen F.
It's working. I was amazed at how much the water flow increased when I changed the filter. I waited a 1 1/2 years because I have a reverse osmosis so thought the filter really couldn't be getting that dirty. Wrong! (Posted on 4/25/2017)
Do the job Review by Ivan R.
So far works good.

Water taste good. Why to pay more for real OEM filters... they all have same filling inside !!!!

And it's a good company who specialized on filters. High quality! !!! Will buy from them again! !!! (Posted on 4/22/2017)
Good product Review by Greg H Diffley
I am very happy with these refills for my whirlpool refrigerator. They seem to last almost 2x longer than what whirlpool refers you to purchase for a refill. Have purchased 3 times and will purchase again. (Posted on 4/12/2017)
Good value Review by Chinook6
Item arrived very quickly and works zas discribed. (Posted on 4/1/2017)
Even better than new at a fraction of the cost Review by LDP
Works just like the more expensive options, same clean clear water at a fraction of the cost.

There is absolutely no reason to get any thing else. Tested with my water tester and although not as clean as the RO filter at the sink it is far better than the tap water and every bit as good as the filter that cost nearly 5 times as much when I last replaced. I am going to put this on a subscription plan so I need not worry about having a fresh replacement when I need it. (Posted on 3/21/2017)
My water tastes noticeably better now. Review by Linda
Works with my Kitchenaid refrigerator. I appreciated that I didn't have to soak the filter before using it. My water tastes noticeably better now. (Posted on 3/17/2017)

Good water filters. Had a bit of a weird taste for the first few days, even after flushing several gallons of water through them, but the taste subsided within the first week. No leaks; fits my Whirlpool refrigerator perfectly. (Posted on 3/5/2017)

Wonder customer service from this company and product is at a great price. I would recommend this filter. Since buying our fridge a few years ago we have used this water drop filter. this filter does such a good job of making our ice and water taste so good (Posted on 2/4/2017)
Happy, Happy!!! Joy, Joy!!! Review by Doc-to-be
Bought this for my mom's refrigerator. She has been using without the filter for some time. I was a bit skeptical due to the low price, but once installed in her fridge and tasted the water, no more skeptic here! I will be back to purchase more when it comes time to change this Waterdrop filter! (Posted on 2/3/2017)
AS ADVERTISED !! Review by Barb
Usually went to brick and mortar store to purchase our replacement filter for our Kitchenaid frig. I convinced my husband this one was an exact replacement and would fit. Well, it arrived quickly and it was exactly as advertised .... an exact replacement -- it is on the job filtering our water !! (Posted on 1/26/2017)

starsNice economical Water Filter Review by MJH@62
Great price and so far works well on our Whirlpool refrigerator. I had purchased more expensive units at Sears and this seems to work as well at 1/2 the price. (Posted on 1/12/2017)
Fits, works, cleans water - it's what you're looking for! Review by KindaPicky
For just a few bucks, I was able to replace the filter in the fridge of the home I just bought. Who knows how long that thing had been in there? Anyway, without much trouble, my water went from brackish to appropriately taste-free, and at one-fifth the cost of the name-brand. This fit perfectly in my Maytag refrigerator. (Posted on 1/4/2017)
Great price Review by Kara Barnett
This filter fits our whirlpool refrigerator and it was such a great price. I will definitly buy this brand again! (Posted on 12/21/2016)

A perfect fit for my fridge Review by C Conway

Excellent replacement filter! Review by pacergirl
Filter was as described. It fit easily into the compartment. Initially the water coming out was gray but it cleared after several times of getting water out of it. Water now is very clear and clean. I would definitely buy again as it is less than half the price of retail at the big box stores. (Posted on 8/5/2016)
No leaks, good price Review by J
Fit our fridge perfectly with no leaks. The water tastes fine. The replacement filter at HH Gregg was nearly $50. Good product at a good price. (Posted on 7/21/2016)
Worked perfect Review by Cookies6299
We were long overdue to change our water filter and finally sat down to find one that would work. We had previously ordered from amazon but the one we had ordered before was no longer in stock. Came across this one and checked to make sure it would work and it did. Received it in fairly quick and changed out the filter and it worked like a charm. Price was great to. Would definitely order again when the time comes. (Posted on 6/30/2016)
