What's the difference between "Ducted" and "Non-Ducted" range hood filters -- NOT the hoods themselves -- but the filters?.

I have a Kenmore range hood model # 233. 53345590. I want to buy a filter for it. Your webpage says that the original part # is 97007937, and the replacement is 50187. The problem is that in your specs the filter is described as a “Non-ducted Filter 8¾? X 10½?”, the measurements are right, but my hood is ducted.
Does this make any difference in what kind of filter I need? Are the filters themselves different for ducted and non-ducted hoods?
What I’d REALLY like to do is buy permanent, washable filters that would fit. Can you give me any help with that? I’m not concerned with cooking odors -- only with grease.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The non-ducted units will usually come with a grease and charcoal filter and ducted units only need the aluminum grease filter. The aluminum grease filters can be removed, cleaned and re-installed. The aluminum grease filter for your model is part #RBF0801 and is available to order from

SearsPartsDirect

.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
