Do we need to shut water off to replace filter? It says to turn counter clockwise but cannot do it, cannot seem to remove it.
Answer Hello Don,
You do not have to turn water off to replace the water filter but is recommended by the manufacturer in case there is a problem with the water filter head. The water filter does just turn counter clockwise. Try to turn water off and release pressure by pushing dispenser. Then try to take out.

Does this water filter fit the Fisher/Paykel single door/bottom freezer/counter depth refrigerator?
Answer Hello Jeannie! The water filter UKF8001 is manufactured for Whirlpool made refrigerators. Unfortunately, we do not have information or carry parts on Fisher-Paykel and can not verify a filter replacement. Sorry about that!
I misplaced the bypass cap for the UKF8001 filter and want to use it instead of the filter. My RO system already provides filtered water to the refrig. Can I buy a bypass cap? part number?
Answer Mike, You forgot to attach a model number of your refrigerator. We beleive the bypass plug you need is 12664501 based on the information you did supply. Since you're on a reverse osmosis (RO) system, you will need to bypass the filter system in order to maintain pressure to the system.
