Kenmore refrigerator water filters

Kenmore refrigerator water filters are certified by the NSF to remove chlorine taste and odor (NSF standard 42). Many Kenmore water filters also can remove lead and cysts (NSF standard 53), and some have passed additional NSF certification tests and are certified to remove volatile organic compounds, pharmaceuticals and some pesticides (NSF standard 401). Learn more about NSF certification here.

To ensure your water filter can trap all the impurities and contaminants it’s been proven to remove, replace your refrigerator water filter every 6 months. We can send you your Kenmore water filter replacement automatically, so you don’t have to remember to reorder.
