Rated 3 out of 5 by from not my first choice We wanted the bigger model with the ice/water on the outside.. but our doors into the house were not big enough.. had to settle for this model.. water is inside door and you have to use both hands to fill a glass (bleh) also the freezer holds virtually NOTHING!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance This is the first time we have owned a 36" wide side by side with the freezer in the bottom and we are extremely pleased with the unit.The fridge keeps produce and meats twice as long in comparison to the previous fridge we have. The water / Ice feature in the fridge is great to have! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Counter Depth I am very pleased with my refrigerator. I did a lot of research and I'm glad I picked my 36" counter depth. One of my favorite features is the water spout inside. It's a great way to stay hydrated. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So much space! This refrigerator came with our DRV Mobile Suites fifth wheel. It has so many options for organizing. The unit is very quiet. We are very pleased with it overall but the door covering the Pantry isn't as secure as it should be and will pop off. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied Customer My wife and I bought the 20cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator six months ago and have had no problems whatsoever. We like the freezer compartment and the way the two-drawer system provides ready access to anything in the freezer and the shelving and easy access provided to the two door fridge section.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect size I did not want to replace my panelled fridge because I loved the look, but was miserable with a side by side fridge. I love the look of the new french door fridge even better. it is perfect for my spot and I have more room inside.Love it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Design has pros and cons We like the large space in the refrigerator area itself, and the deli drawer is a nice addition to store cheese, lunch meat, even 20 oz bottles on their side. This keeps smaller items out of the way in the main area.The LED lighting is great and control panel is easy to use and the door alarm can be turned on or off.Our negatives would be the size of the produce bins/ crisper and we aren't thrilled with the wire freezer baskets, they are too small and hard to organize or store various frozen food items easily. We had solid drawers before and prefer those.And the negative in the main area would be the odd space left at the back of the shelves, we lose some space there and flat, smaller things can fall and get stuck there at times. We have to be careful not to push items too far back because of this.For the size of this refrigerator, we expected more freezer storage. The Wire freezer baskets get a low grade in this model.But, we like the main storage design overall. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish refrigerator We are very happy with the style of our refrigerator! It fits so very nicely with our countertops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of storing items Having a refrigerator that allows storage of oversized items is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Love it! LOVE IT!!! Counter depth was what I wanted, without sacrificing interior space and it is exactly that. The full width cold cuts drawer, divided, to hold eggs and butter, frees up open shelf.ie. It is easy to organize.I've had many refrigerators and by far this is the best one yet! It runs quiet and the ice maker sweep is not annoying, like some.I LOVE IT! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far ok I've had it just over 2 weeks. First service call was this morning. Panel and gasket of freezer to be replaced as they are letting air escape and ice forms on inside top of drawer. I'll withhold recommendations until I see how the replacement parts work. Shouldn't have his kind of hassled with a brand new and expensive appliance. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fridge I've ever owned From the moment we brought our whirlpool fridge I was in love ! Mostly with the design at first but now I love how easy and functional every feature on my fridge is. I especially like the indoor water/ice dispenser. I've always thought the outdoor dispensers looked tacky but I always wanted the convenience of having the water/ice feature. The design is sleek and modern! Making our kitchen look great! Hoping to buy a whirlpool stove soon! Thank you so much from my family! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lemon I'd like to start by saying that there are features that I like about this Frig. but they are cosmetic. I ordered this frig and patiently waited 3 mo while it was backordered. Imagine how excited I was when it finally was installed in our new home. Last appliance to arrive to complete my kitchen. Well less than 3 mo. later the freezer compartment bottom drawer was freezing up so badly I would have to defrost it. Tech 1 came out and replaced something in the back of the frig that he said was causing condensation. Told us to empty the frig and freezer and let it totally defrost and plug it back in 12 hrs. later. Fortunately my husband had a back up frig in this garage. That worked for several weeks and problem started again. Tech 2 came out and took off the gasket around the freezer door and put "it" the same gasket on the door. Didn't work. Tech 3 came out and said the gasket needed to be removed and turned around because it had a bow in it. Didn't fix it. Tech 4 came out and said the door was not aligned and ordered a new door. Tech 4 was very helpful and came back weeks later and replaced door. So everything was working fine for a little over a year and now the same problem is starting all over again. Too add to the frustration the ice maker doesn't produce any ice either. We live in a small community and seem to be last on the list for service calls and it takes weeks to get someone out to fix it. We even purchased the extra 4 yr protection plan. We also purchased a new washer and dryer which were Whirlpool for this new home. Have used your products for years but are giving it a second thought right now. I can call customer service but my experience of long wait times is annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has a place for everything you need. Besides being beautiful, it's very low maintainence. The French doors are convenient and there's a sliding drawer the width of the fridge for drinks, cold cuts or whatever you choose. I love it!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New Refrigerator There are some great features to this refrigerator. I love the filtered water access and the massive space in the refrigerator part. The freezer space is a bit challenging. My main issue is that the height measurement was off and I have a refrigerator sticking out 7 inches instead of 3.

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 >

Evaluate Features

Ice and Water Dispensers: provide cool, fresh water and ice whenever you need it.
Water Filters: keep water fresh and sparkly with a new water filter designed for your fridge.
Upgraded Sound Insulation: keeps your unit running quietly with more sound installation that dampens buzzing, rattling and other noises.
Stainless Steel: a premium look that lasts with stainless steel finish.
Smudge-Free Finishes (Universal Silver): keep your refrigerator looking clean.

Choose Your Accessories

Water Filters: keep water fresh by changing your refrigerator’s water filter every six months.
Cleaners & Deodorizers: find a range of cleaning products made especially for your appliance.
