Whirlpool base grille filters are used in the Whirlpool branded fridges, but they are also sometimes seen in re-branded appliances, such as Smeg and Hotpoint side-by-side refrigerators and occasionally in other Whirlpool group product ranges (i.e. those manufactured by Amana or Maytag).
If your cartridge fits into the base grille (i.e. beneath the doors at the front of the fridge) then this is the filter for you.
There are several cartridges available for these products, however, these are all identical, it's just the level of filtration performance that changes depending on the composition of the internal media inside the cartridge.
This compatible has been designed to serve as a direct replacement for the regular 4396508, which is the most popular of the Whirlpool filters and the only one currently being supplied by Whirlpool UK.
It is essentially a taste and odour filter, designed to remove chlorine, sediment, dissolved organics, etc., via carbon media, working in exactly the same way as the original.
This cartridge has a lifespan of 6 months, as per the original.
This filter is our new replacement for the previous Ecoaqua EA-W4 (6002A) Filter
I found this website just doing a Google search and was impressed with the prices of the products I required.
I ordered just before 1pm on Friday and the products were delivered the next day.
The products seem exactly the same as the Whirlpool branded ones but about a 3rd cheaper even with postage.
I will add you to my Favourites ready for the next time I order.
In a world where you very rarely get what you want at a good price with excellent delivery, this is Brilliant service. Thank you.
