Whirlpool 4396508 Fridge Filter Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com.
Today weíre looking at the Whirlpool KitchenAid 4396508. This is a typical carbon fridge filter that youíre going to find on the base grill in front on Fridgidaire and Whirlpool model refrigerators.
Itís NSF Standard 42 and 53 certified and removes a huge array of contaminants so itís really a very good filter. But, if you want just slightly better contaminant removal you can move up to the 4396510. Itís the exact same filter, fitting inside of the exact same spot on those fridges that take the 6508. But it has just slightly higher contaminant removal, most noticeably cysts and microorganisms.
Now the manufacturer has recently made a change to this filter that I want to make you aware of. Iím going to zoom in here and show you a change thatís been made to the connection piece.
The manufacturer has changed these tabs. Soon, some of you will begin receiving filters where this notch is filled in with plastic. Whether itís filled in or has the notch it will still fit in your refrigerator.
Both of these filters are rated for approximately six months of filter life depending on usage and water quality. If you are a heavy water user or if you know you have problem water you should change your filter more frequently than that. But never go any longer than six months, itís just a bad idea.
So there you have it, the Whirlpool KitchenAid 4396508, and for slightly higher contaminant removal the 4396510.
