July 22, 2014Maytag Filter UKF8001

There’s some really good news for those of you who use this filter – read my Maytag Filter UKF8001 review below for more. . .

My review will tell you about important information for this filter, alternate part numbers and where to find a low-cost replacement.

GREAT NEWS FOR ALL OF YOU MAYTAG FILTER UKF8001 USERS

This Maytag water filter UKF8001 part number has recently become a lot shorter and it’s now much easier to remember – so ordering yourself a replacement is super-simple and easy.

  • The previously-used “AXX” suffix has been dropped from the end of the part number and now the new filter number is simply the Maytag PUR UKF8001 filter (without the “AXX” on the end of the UKF8001) – how easy is that?

If you’re like me and either can’t or don’t want to remember long part numbers, you’ll be very happy now with the new, shorter Maytag filter UKF8001 part number. I know I am!

Sometimes the Maytag filter UKF8001 is also called the Maytag PUR UKF8001, but the only part of the designation that matters is the “UKF8001″ because they’re both exactly the same item.

WHY WAS THIS MAYTAG FILTER UKF8001 FILTER PART NUMBER SHORTENED?

Previously, all the different makes and models of refrigerators (including the Maytag branded fridges) that used the old UKF8001AXX part number added up to a fairly large number – over 120 to be accurate.

120+ different designations is a lot of different refrigerator filter part numbers to keep track of all the versions of the Maytag water filter UKF8001, I know I sure can’t do it.

As consumers, I know we’re all glad to have an easier part number for our Maytag PUR water filters. Simply having to remember the filter number as the Maytag filter UKF8001 is a lot easier to remember.

And. . .almost every one of the other water filter part numbers that were used for different refrigerator brands became completely obsolete when this cool, new Maytag refrigerator ice and water filter UKF8001 came into the market.

  • This consolidation made life simple again – now for any Maytag that uses the UKF8001 designation, the PUR water filter UKF8001 is all you have to remember for any replacement of the following refrigerator filter part numbers:
