This set of replacement filters has been a great solution to replacing the manufactures filter in my refrigerator. This two pack of replacement filters is an exception value over the brand name product. To replace the filter is fairly simple with just a twist to remove the old filter and insert and twist the new filter back into place. After replacing the filter, make sure to run about 2 to 4 gallons of water through the newly installed filter to assure there is no air in the line and any particles filter thoroughly.
Now that I have found the value pack, I will never go back to purchasing the brand name filter.

This HDX filter fit my Maytag refrigerator just fine. It's made in the USA and has NSF/ANSI 42 and 53 certification. It weighs 30% less than the OEM filter (7.3 oz vs 10.3 oz) and is slightly smaller in diameter. They come with stick-on date tags and a six-month change recommendation.
The flow rate is as good as the OEM filter. The initial flush produced lots of carbon fines, but after the first gallon it ran clear.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Suzie Water has a metal taste
After I installed this filter the water was a grey dingy color. I ran the water for a while until it finally cleared up. Now the water tastes like metal. The filter has been in the refrigerator for several days and still no change in the flavor. My water never tasted like this with other filters. I will go back to ordering on line.

Works as a suitable generic replacement for the name brand filter.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TBarney Functional but not great
I won't rate this any lower, because it does actually fit my fridge (Maytag French door, filter in top right corner) and it does filter the water. But the flow rate is so abysmally slow that my family griped every time they had to fill a glass or the coffee pot! It's rated at 0.5 gpm, and I would say it probably does that, but compared to the Whirlpool official replacement (now made by Everydrop) which is rated at 0.8 gpm, it's half as fast. I timed it. It took 56 seconds to fill a 1.4qt. jug. Doesn't seem that long, but feels like forever, especially since we were used to the fast flow of the original filter. The Everydrop filter that replaced it took 32 seconds. You can see in the attached picture the difference between this filter on the left, and the Everydrop on the right. The HDX filter is smaller, and has fewer openings for the water to flow through.
Then again, this filter is half the cost of the Everydrop, so if you need to same some money and don't mind what feels like a trickle of water from your dispenser, it's still acceptable.

These replacement filters for Whirlpool products seem to be exact fit. I have only used the filter for a week now, but no leaks, seems to do the filter job just fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Good product, better price
Used this replacement filter in my Maytag. It fit perfectly. The filter medium performed as advertised. The price point is what I liked best about this item. You can purchase 2 of these for just slightly more than what one of the "name brand" filters costs. If there is one thing that I would ding this product for, the amount of water pressure coming out of this unit is slightly less than the other filters. I would suppose this is due to the thicker filter medium. You also have to run several glasses of water through your dispenser before the unit settles down and no longer appears cloudy. Over all I am well pleased with this purchase.
