Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT COUNTER DEPTH FRIDGE I just recently moved and had limited space for a fridge. Josh and Brett helped me out every which way possible. The only thing I am upset about at this point - have really only been using the fridge for a week - is I seem to be missing one of the freezer shelves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional Frustration We have had our new Whirlpool refrigerator for a little over two weeks. So far the freezer handle has fallen off 4 times!!! We like the features of the fridge and really like that it is counter depth. I really hope the fact that the handle keeps coming off isn’t a precedent for more broken things to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No finger or hand prints ever!!! The fact that I no longer have to clean the outside of the refrigerator anymore is a godsend! I do wish the on/off switch for the ice maker was easier to get to. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great appliance I wanted to wait at least a few weeks to write this review, because I think that's the best way to get a more accurate appraisal of your appliance. It's pointless to review things the first day you get it, so I wish people wouldn't do that. But I digress... I'm very pleased with this product. I purposefully bought a Whirlpool because they are, based on my research and experience, the best reviewed and longest lasting products out there. That was the impetus behind my research. While I initially wanted a larger unit, we did specifically choose this counter depth model based on the location and size of our new cabinets. It fits perfect. Best points: 1. This fridge is very quiet, I rarely hear it running unless I stop to listen for it. 2. In spite of being counter depth, it is very roomy and I do not feel that I lack space. It's only my husband and I in the house, so it's perfect for us and our needs. I also specifically wanted a side by side like this because they have larger freezers than the French Door versions, and use my freezer a lot. 3. The water measuring feature on the control panel is very useful and is an added bonus. 4. Energy efficient The only reason I didn't give a full 5 stars is that I feel the water and ice dispenser pressure pads require a little more pressure from your cup than others I've used before. This doesn't really present a problem and certainly does not prevent me from buying this unit again, I'm just listing it as something noteworthy. Perhaps Whirlpool could tweak that a little in the future. Overall, a solid purchase and I'm very happy. I will continue to buy Whirlpool because they make the best products (Samsung can bite me, they are outrageously overpriced and may look fancy, but they breakdown in months. Look at the reviews.) Thanks, hope this helps! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Came in our new Jayco RV Love it, work well in our camper, much more efficient than the combo gas / electric RV refrigerators. I was happy to see it only draws 1 amp when it's plugged in and cooled down. It runs on a inverter and two batteries when were not on electric. It lasts a minimu of 11 hours, I'm sure it go much longer. Supper happy with it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size I bought this whirlpool fridge to replace a Samsung that I had for eight years. It was awful for over half of those years. I’ve had this new fridge for a week but so far I’m happy with it. I got the counter depth so it wouldn’t stick out from my cabinets. It fits in nicely. You can’t have it even with the cabinets because your doors won’t open but it’s pretty close. Lots of room in the refrigerator side with plenty of shelves spaced nicely. The freezer side is a little small but I do have another freezer to use so it’s not an issue for me. The ice maker works great. I had ice the next morning. It does seem like a shelf is missing in the freezer but that’s where the vents are located so they won’t get blocked without the shelf in the way. A great feature I find is the water dispenser. You can set the ounces you want your cup filled, hit a button and walk away while it fills. It does stay fingerprint free too! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Limited Freezer Space and no Butter section I was very disappointed in the freezer capacity. There is also no flip section for butter. Same exterior size of my old refrigerator but interior space is limited.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it better than I thought I would Had my old Whirlpool 33 years and never had it worked on. So far I like this one better. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Measure Your Space

Side-to-Side:

Add 3-3/4" minimum space to hinged side & 1/2" to non-hinged side for door clearance and airflow. Side-by-side refrigerators have hinges on both sides, so you'll need to allow 3-3/4" on each side.

Back-to-Front:

Add 1/2" to back. Allow extra space for water lines if model has icemaker or water dispenser.

Top-to-Bottom:

Add 1/2" to front.

Cutout Space:

Measure height, width and depth of refrigerator cutout space in kitchen.

Entrance & Doorways:

Measure doorways, hallways and entry points that unit must pass through.

Decide What Type

Bottom Freezer/French Door:
  • Easy storage for bulky or wide items
  • Combines benefits of side-by-side and bottom-freezer configurations
  • Fresh food is at eye level
  • Capacities range from 18.5 - 30 cu. ft.
Side-by-Side:
  • Wide range of freezer capacity options
  • Through-the-door ice and water dispensing
  • Narrower doors make access easier in tight kitchen spaces
  • Capacities range from 22 - 30 cu. ft.
Top Freezer:
  • Great value
  • Available with features such as flexible beverage dispensers
  • Frozen food is easily accessible
  • Capacities range from 14.4 - 22 cu. ft.

Additional Considerations

Important Considerations
Energy Efficiency

Your refrigerator is one of the few home appliances that run all day, but usage cost is a factor many people forget to consider. An older or inefficient refrigerator uses more energy, meaning a new refrigerator can actually save money.
Aging refrigerators work harder and cost more to operate as refrigerants and seals degrade over time. Units made before 1999 may not meet current Department of Energy usage guidelines. Some bottom-freezer refrigerators consume less energy than a 60-watt bulb.


Disposal

Haul away is available for replacement product purchases. Unhook and move the unit you wish to be hauled away to an area from which it can be easily removed. Haul Away Details >

Installation

We offer installation options for major appliances that do not require gas or water hookup, and are not a built-in unit. Eligible products will display the installation service during checkout. Installation Details >
