Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Capacity. Can't believe it's "counter depth" I'm very pleased with this purchase. The freezer has great capacity and all stored items are easy to see and retrieve. The shelf settings work well for both short and tall items. I like having the big shelves in the door for gallon milk jugs, juice cartons, and all those salad dressing bottles. It's nice to have the wine chilling rack, too. I especially like the way the lights gradually increase intensity as you open the door. My complaints are few and minor. I've learned to cup my hand around the top of the glass when getting ice from the dispenser to avoid ice shooting out and falling on the floor. Also, as with most stainless steel appliances, the handles and surface collect fingerprints daily and require a quick wipe. This is the best refrigerator choice I could have made for our kitchen and way of life. October 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by product is great The products works well & i would definitely use whirpool products again March 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by small fixes I really like this frig--but there are a couple of quick fixes which our appliance repair company is installing--one is the cold air distributor so it defuses the cold spot in tthe upper refrig shelf and a minor addition to the ice maker to prevent the auto turn off of the ice maker. Whirlpool should contact owners--I learned this from the repair folks, after having some minor issues, Otherwise I am pleased with all my Whirlpool appliances September 26, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad day at the Factory Waited for this in backorder, did not work from the start. Waited for service and the guy worked on it for an hour and then just had to order a new compressor. Still waiting, Will just have to wait and see if it works October 20, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Had problems with it from the start This product came in a new motorhome that I purchased. After 2 days in service, the ice-maker quit working, the ice dispinser motor froze-up and would not operate, and all liquid containers (milk, can drinks, bottled water) on the top shelf of the refrigerator side froze solid. The Whirlpool tech replaced the thermistor & the dispenser motor while the motorhome was up at the factory getting other items repaired. The tech's at the factory are telling me that the refrigerator is now working properly so I will find out if that is the case when I get it back and load it up with the typical items necessary for camping. It is my understanding that the production of this model was suspended in January 2013, only 3 years after being introduced into the marketplace. That would suggest to me an inherent design problem if the model is being discontinued after only 3 years in production. April 1, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by The lighting is great, the product is poor. I do not recommend this refrigerator. I read the bad reviews and said that bad things don’t happen to me so I purchased it anyway. However the unit never got cold and after 24hrs and was actually getting warmer. We've had the factory service out three times. The compressor overload sensor and switch was replaced. That didn’t fix the problem so they came out again and said that the compressor was bad. They gave us a new refrigerator but we were without a refrigerator for 10 days while all this was going on. With the new refrigerator the freezer only reaches about 15F degrees and the fresh food section varies between 32 and 41degrees. The service rep said that this was normal. When I purchased the refrigerator I was lead to believe that there were separate compressors for the each side and that the doors were stainless steel. There is only one compress and a magnet sticks to the doors. The doors are not stainless steel. The compress seems to be running all the time. The ice maker is noisy and that device that releases the ice can be heard from the other room as well as the ice crashing into the bucket. April 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good looking, good function I purchased this fridge for the company break room. It slides into the space nicely and had a clean look since it's flush with our cabinets. We had to lower the factory set temp as the top fridge shelf was too cold and the sodas kept exploding, but once we figured out the best temp for that, it's worked like a dream! Got many complements from employees on how pretty it looked in the space. September 26, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by The appliance has a very well thought out design with numerous quality features. The design of this appliance is very good, with a stylish exterior, lots of useable space, handy shelves and bins, and excellent interior lighting. However,one feature did not perform as well as I would have expected. The chilled water dispenser has to dispense a few ounces of water before the temperature of the water decreases to the point that it would be considered chilled. September 29, 2012
