Maytag UKF8001 Pure Refrigerator Cyst Water Filter
Make sure the water and ice from your Maytag or Jenn-Air refrigerator is as clean and fresh tasting as possible by replacing Maytag Refrig water filter. This Maytag Puriclean II refrigerator water filter is used in Maytag and Jenn-Air refrigerators with filter access inside the refrigerator.
It's NSF-certified to reduce cysts, particulates (Class I), lead, mercury, and more. (The contaminants or other substances removed or reduced by this water filter are not necessarily in all users' water.) While it effectively removes contaminants from your water and ice, this filter also lowers the taste and odor of chlorine while retaining beneficial fluoride.
For the highest quality water and ice, your refrigerator's water filter needs to be changed over a period of time as its effectiveness at cleaning the water is reduced. For optimal results, you should replace this refrigerator water filter every 12 months to ensure clean, safe drinking water and ice.
Your refrigerator will even remind you when to change its filter, turning on an indicator light found near the water dispenser. Changing the filter is easy--just locate the old filter, twist and turn it until it becomes loose, then pull the old filter out and replace with the new filter.

No Need to Change Maytag UKF8001 Pur Refrigerator Cyst Water Filter Yearly for Most Users
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 yucky 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 undercounted unit), the refrigerator filter would be functional for a few years. The undercounted units have a quite large capacity and some use two filter cartridges.
