Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnS Perfect substitute.
I have a Whirlpool Estate side-by-side refrigerator with a built-in filter at the bottom. The name-brand filters work fine but are expensive. This Home Depot HDX filter is a perfect fit for my refrigerator and can replace the other brands of filters.
The filter will accept the special refrigerator grille plug. It also has a reminder sticker so you can keep track of the last filter change.
The packaging is the usual clam-shell package so you will need a knife or scissors to open it.
My filter part number is 4396508 and this filter works.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KWHomeowner Good "generic" filter
This filter works well and is definitely comparable to other "name brand" filters. It was easy to install. I can definitely notice a difference in the taste between the water from my tap and that from the fridge. The filtered water tastes infinitely better. I would recommend this filter (and brand) to anyone looking for an affordable way to improve the quality of their drinking water and ice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by He1990 My fridge was in need
I have a kenmore fridge however this filter was able to fit in it as well. That was great because i know these filters tend to cost at least $50 or so at the stores. So to come up on something like this for free is pretty great. I ordered an extra one as you will always have to be changing the filters for the fridge fairly often.
It was a lot easier to install this one then to take out the old one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coolbone Exact filter replacement !!!!!!
I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator and this was an exact fit for my water filter replacement. The filter gives the ice and water a crisp clean taste and easily fits into the bottom slot of your refrigerator. This filter replacement fits a variety of different refrigerators and is sturdy and easy to use and install. This filter can catalytically brakdown impurities very similar to the way a catalytic converter works in an automobile. The great part is that this particular brand is an alternative to past brand names I used in the past and you economical save money by going with brand that does all the brand name offers with the only difference being in the cost back to you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tangy2 Easiest filter to install
The filter was really easy to install. Installed as instructed and allowed the water to flow through the dispenser for 2 minutes before using. After installation the water tasted much better than before replacing the filter. I must admit, the 'original' filter was in place since June 2014. A feature that I loved was a sticker included which I placed on the front of the refrigerator door indicating when the filter was installed and when it needs to be replaced. An excellent product I would recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HomeHandyman Great reasonable cost alternative
This filter fit perfectly in my Whirlpool refrigerator. My appliance is 12 years old but it was an exact match and a much more reasonable cost. Simple to install.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bakingmom Works well
It was very difficult to find filters for my older model Kitchenaid side by side refrigerator and ice maker, and they were expensive. These fit perfectly, and were very easy to place into the filter compartment. They are also less expensive, and are very efficient. The ice is fresh, with no aftertaste. The directions also state to change them every six months, instead of every 3 months. It is much easier to have fresh tasting ice and water, especially for the warmer months.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Raven DIRECT REPLACEMENT FOR MANUFACTURER'S FILTER
This is a less expensive direct replacement for manufacturer's refrigerator filter. Fit great, installed easily, could see no visible difference in the filter itself or it's installation. Will cut it in half once it's finsihed and see how it filted by comparison but that will be a couple more months down the road. Water tastes good and filter appears to be working just fine. No leaks.
