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.

The icemaker on our refrigerator has never worked. Immediately after installation over 4 weeks ago we noticed the icemaker was not working. When you push on the lever to obtain ice, the motor turns but no ice comes out. No ice is being made; there is nothing in the ice receptacle. The icemaker has a sufficient water supply, and the in-door cold water source does work. The repair company that Whirlpool directed us to under warranty has had us defrost the refrigerator for 24 hours, and has ordered a new ice maker and infrared sensor, but then discovered that was not the problem. They are now ordering a new door for our unit, claiming the insulation in the freezer door is defective. It will be 6 more weeks before we find out if this solves the problem. If it does, we will have been without an icemaker for 3 months after purchasing this product. If it does not, it will be even longer. Do not buy this product.

Be careful

By 

from Anchorage, AK

Comments about Whirlpool Black Side-By-Side Counter Depth Refrigerator:

The refrigerator quit working after 9 months. I have missed work on two different afternoons because Whirpoo (not a typo or a Freudian slip) has had two different companies to come out to tell me that is broken. The fridge is still broken and they are having a third company to come out to diagnose it. I believe they are trying to get bids at the expense of my time or they are trying to make it past the warranty because they don't want to have to deal with it when it breaks again. Customer service has been worse than the product. It has been five weeks since I have had refrigeration and I am getting tired of drinking warm beer in order to deal with my family's complaints about not having food in the fridge.

Horrible product with even worse customer service

By 

from Anchorage, AK

Comments about Whirlpool Black Side-By-Side Counter Depth Refrigerator:

This refrigerator is hard to keep clean and broke down after 9 months. In the last five weeks, Whirpool has sent two different companies over to my house to tell me that is broken. They have yet to come up with a plan on how they are going to warranty the product. I have spent numerous hours on the phone with them and had to miss multiple afternoons of work for the workmen to look at the fridge.
DO NOT BUY ANY WHIRPOOL APPLIANCE! Fridges are suppose to last for years, not nine months.

Noisy beyond belief

Comments about Whirlpool Black Side-By-Side Counter Depth Refrigerator:

The loudest icemaker you have ever heard. It sounds like someone is breaking in to your house. Yes its that loud. The compressor is also the noisiest I have ever heard. We bought this to replace our last whirlpool that lasted 20 years. Something tells me this one wont come close.

OVER CONDENSATION IN THE REFRIGERATOR & FREEZER

By 

from Greensboro, NC

Comments about Whirlpool Black Side-By-Side Counter Depth Refrigerator:

I bought the Whirlpool Counter Depth side by side refrigerator exactly one month ago. I plan to send it back today. The counter depth refrigerator appears to have a problem with over condensation. The refrigerator temperature has been adjusted & readjusted according to directions. However the food in my refrigerator is basically all wet. Food in the freezer is full of ice.

Ice Maker and Dispenser Problems

By 

from South Carolina

Comments about Whirlpool Black Side-By-Side Counter Depth Refrigerator:

The space saver is great. Hate the ice dispenser and ice maker. Nothing but trouble. Freezes up and wil not dispense. Replaced motor and have had a technician out twice to repair. Ice maker very loud as well.
Purchased 3 years ago and never really been happy with this refrigerator.

Looks nice, but poorly engineered

By 

from Roswell, GA

Comments about Whirlpool Black Side-By-Side Counter Depth Refrigerator:

Purchase the refrigerator about 3 years ago, and am still amazed at its unique features - (1) Freezes food in the refrigerator (2) Does not allow water to be dispensed when the refrigerator door (not freezer door) is opened; a unique feature that no other model does (sorry for the sarcasm) and (3) Has a door that continues to slide down and has to be adjusted to shut properly.

Nice looking refrigerator

By 

from Houston, Texas

Comments about Whirlpool Black Side-By-Side Counter Depth Refrigerator:

Because of limited space I could not get a refrigerator wider than 36 inches. My choices were quite limited. Very disappointed with choices available with all brands overall. Freezer seems so small with very little shelving. Door shelving not very deep. Water dispenser not very user friendly. My 23 yr. old Kenmore was just starting to have problems but it was the same size as this one but better made.
