Use this Maytag Water Filter for Bottom-Freezer Refrigerators to reduce chlorine taste, odor, lead and more. To ensure fresh, clean water, replace the filter every 12 months.

The filter states it is a six month but my service rep, where I bought the refrig, told me that I was really a 12 month. I pushed the reset button at six months and rocked on until around the 11th. Almost got 12 months out of it with no degradation at all until the very last week. The indicator was that the water had a little texture to it. Nothing terrible just a slight indicator.

Replacement time will depend on the Maker of the Unit.
Our Maytag suggests replacement every 6 months, others may say 12 months.
My parents refrigerator uses the same filter and their water supply will clog it up in 5 months.

majgrannie,
This water filter is for Whirlpool Corporation built bottom freezer refrigerators. The location of the filter reset would depend on your model of refrigerator. Most likely the reset option is located on the control panel above the water dispenser. It is possible that there is not a reset and you would just need to remember to change the filter every 12 months. Thank you for viewing this water filter produced by Whirlpool Corporation for our bottom freezer refrigerators.

Chuck,
In your question you are stating two different refrigerators, they are not one in the same. If my answer doesn't work for you would you please restate? A Top Mount Refrigerator is where the freezer is on top and the fresh food section on the bottom. A Bottom Freezer Refrigerator is flipped, the freezer is on the bottom and the fresh food section is on the top.

The filter that this Q/A is attached to is designed for a Bottom Freezer Refrigerator and it will fit any Whirlpool Corporation Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with this type of filter; Jenn Air, Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool, Maytag, and Amana. Thank you for viewing.

If your maytag has the filter inside the unit at the top, yes. This will not fit the models that mount

Brandi,

The gallon capacity for this water filter is 750 gallons. However, regardless of how much use it gets, it is recommended to change every 6 months due to the particles that are filter out of the water. This ensures that you get the optimal performance. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool Corporation accessory and thank you for the opportunity to answer your question.
