This high quality replacement from WPro is a compatible filter made to manufacturer's specifications and used on a wide range of American fridge freezers that use the external type water filter

These are now the newer push fit type and will replace external water filters with other types of fixings. Simply cut any existing fixings from the hose ends and then push the hoses in to each end of the filter to seal.

This version is a little bit more expensive than some of the cheap compatible water filters but it is a better filter removing more impurities from the water and we think it's worth the extra couple of pounds for that level of quality. But please see the information at the bottom of the page on the really cheap water filters that have become available.

Free Timestrip With This Water Filter

Free Timestrip with this water filter With this fridge water filter we include, free of charge, a Timestrip worth £1.49 that allows you to see quickly tell that you are needing a new water filter or to simply see how long the filter that is in the fridge has been there.

The problem with most fridges is that whilst on a fridge at least there is normally some sort of filter change light to tell you when to change the filter it usually won't come on until you actually need to replace the filter. Obviously it is normally a few days before you can get one and swap it over but, if you use the water and ice a lot this can be an inconvenience.

The Timestrip is activated by simply squeezing the bubble on the label and a red line appears almost immediately to confirm that the indicator is active. That's it, you're done!

Safe, simple and dead easy.

The following fridge freezers and water filters can be replaced with this filter.

These are disposable filters that fit behind the refrigerator - usually plumbed-in via ¼" outside diameter flexible piping.

The GS10J cartridge is designed as a direct replacement for both the EF-9603 and the WSF-100, offering equal performance in terms of water filtration at a lower cost than the manufacturer's original part.

Cheap Water Filter Warning

There has been a number of cheap water filters appeared onto the market that seem just like this one. They're not.

We have had several reports now from the engineers on the site that they are finding some of these filters "breaking up" internally and the charcoal or whatever it is that's used in these cheap knock-offs being dragged up into the water system inside the fridge. So far none have suffered any major damage and only required cleaning out although, there's been a fair few Samsung water tanks replaced due to this. It has however cost some people a bit to have the problem sorted out so buying the cheap water filters could well prove to be a false economy.

It is very tempting to think that you can get two filters for less than £10 but please do consider why these water filters are being sold as cheaply as they are before you buy your new water filter.

As usual, we refuse to sell these inferior products.

   Fridge Water Filters 

There are some things that people should be aware of about fridge water filters.

Over the past few years, as fridges with filtered water have become more and more popular, we've also seen a mammoth rise in very cheap and, usually very nasty, fridge freezer water filters coming onto the market. It won't surprise most people to learn that these are mass produced very cheaply in places like China and the quality can be, at best, questionable. Of course, there are some good filters that come from the Far East as well, we know as we do use some of them, but they cost significantly more than the really cheap and nasty water filters that we won't sell.

Asides from which we've now had several worrying reports of these cheap water filters breaking up and contaminating the water system in some models of fridge freezers, that's not good. If that happens to you it may well contaminate the water system and the tank meaning a big cost to fix it so, our advice, avoid the really cheap ones as cutting the quality of them is the only way it can be done.

The point of a water filter in your fridge is to get good, clean water to drink. Many cheap fridge water filters don't accomplish that.

We avoid these for the reasons explained and we will not recommend using them, it's not worth it.

You can learn much more on this subject, as well as why it is important to regularly change the water filter from this article on the main site

  Choosing The Correct Fridge Water Filter

There are, in effect, two ways that fridge water filters are installed, either externally or internally.

Most external water filters are all of the one kind and are pretty much universal, that's the WSF100 type cartridge that has a pipe from your mains water in one side and a pipe out the other to the fridge.

The internal ones can be a lot more interesting.

Most fridge and fridge freezer manufacturers will "brand" their machines for other people so you can save by not buying them, for example, genuine Hotpoint or Smeg water filter and instead buy the Whirlpool one which is much cheaper but, the same water filter. This applies to a good many fridge water filters and if you look closely you can save money on them.

  Delivery

We are going to get any part/s you order to you as fast as we possibly can.

We use a variety of means to do that but we also give you, the customer, the choice of how fast you want the transit time to be as well as the features and convenience levels that suit you on delivery so, there are options. There is a lot of information here on how we do this and explanation of the choice you have as well as the impact of each in speed and cost as we are very open and transparent.

Orders placed outwith our normal business hours will not be shipped until the next working day and subject to stock availability. Please be aware that we show availability and that we do not display live stock levels online.

What we do is give an average here based on where parts are and typically take to ship as well as an average of transit times based on how people order parts so these can vary depending largely on the shipping method that we allow you to select depending on your own individual needs.

The estimated normal time that an item will take to reach you (excluding weekends and public holidays) is indicated on every listing at the top of the listing in orange with the truck next to it, an explanation of these is as follows:

1 to 6 Days: Normally a UK stock item and usually dispatched the same or next working day but some items may take a little longer depending on where the stock is.

1 to ** Days: Usually a UK/EU stocked item but may have a longer lead time, for clarification of the time please contact us before ordering and we will advise further if required.

* to ** Days: Variable lead times that are based on normal order supply times, often parts that do not have a “1 to“ at the start will ordinarily be factory or custom order items and we would ask that you please allow the time indicated for your order to arrive with you. Please note that these items are specially ordered upon request that is not normally stocked therefore cannot be ordinarily returned, this does not affect your statutory rights.

Again, please note that your chosen delivery method may affect the delivery time to both shorten and lengthen that delivery time and that these estimates apply to UK mainland orders only. The faster delivery method that you choose, the lower on that estimated delivery time you will likely receive the items ordered.

If you need clarification or a more accurate lead time please contact us for assistance on that and we will do our utmost to provide that as our estimated lead times are based on normal stock availability, average lead times, average shipping times and this can vary depending on shipping methods etc.

Our standard delivery charges are quoted online when you place an order on the checkout page and are determined by weight, size and method so can alter based on those parameters.

Our estimated delivery times do not apply to international or offshore orders, only to UK mainland addresses and that delivery times to more rural areas may vary depending on the service used.

Delivery times can vary at times of very high volumes, such as Christmas period and also due to bad weather etc and at such times deliveries, regardless of service used, may not happen as normal.

  Order Transit Times
