Very stylish refrigerator! Fits right in to an awkward space. Very spacious for a counter-depth refrigerator. Provides plenty of space for two adults and three children. LED lighting gives it that "ahh" cool feeling and excellent lighting when opening up. Kids love the measured fill feature.

Hard to come by on the sales floor - HD/Lowes/Sears seem to showcase entry level products, so you have to look for it.

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.

        A good refrigerator, except for the very noisy icemaker which occasionally throws ice on the floor when no one is using the dispenser.

              Comments about Whirlpool Monochromatic Satina Side-By-Side Counter Depth Refrigerator:

              This is a very neat looking fridge especially because it looks built in. We have a 40ft fifth wheel and this unit certainly contributes to the residential feel of our home on wheels. Unfortunately we have had some issues with the ice maker working inconsistently. We recently had some warranty work done to correct the problem and discovered that the ice maker filler mechanism came loose creating an air flow leak which caused the filler tube to freeze up. The repair person re attached the tube and it appears to be working better, however still not getting as much ice as expected. The design of the filler tube attachment needs to be reviewed as it was difficult to get attached and should not have come loose in the first place. The repair person also caulked around several gaps near the doors.

                    Overall very happy with refrigerator. There are some things I wish operated different. IceMaker throws icechips everywhere when making ice especially in the crush mode. Have to push too hard to get water or ice. Wish it had a sensor for when you wanted water or ice.

                          Perfect for what I need

                          from Miami, FL, United States

                          Comments about Whirlpool Monochromatic Satina Side-By-Side Counter Depth Refrigerator:

                          I bought this refrigerator without seeing it first at any store. I was interested in a counter depth, white, side-by-side refrigerator, and this one appeared to fit my needs. However, none of the stores I checked in South Florida carries it. The space is sufficient, I believe, unless there are many people in the household. I have read a few negative comments about the limited ice maker capacity, which is not very large, but it does not bother me. It has proven to be enough for me and for when I have visitors for dinner. Yes, the ice dispenser is somewhat noisy, but I do not care much. The refrigerator is quiet when running. The lights in the interior are great, the shelves are perfect, and the wine rack is very useful and original. Last, the looks are great despite being a white appliance, mostly because of the metal handles. The previous refrigerator I had was also a Whirlpool, bought 10+ years ago, and still working. I just changed it for this one because I wanted something more modern. The one thing that I would add is more flexibility to where place the shelves., limited now to the few options that come with it.

                                We bought this refrigerator 2 months ago. We have a hard to fit space in our kitchen with cannot take the standard 35.75 with plus we needed countertop depth. Not only did this refrigerator fit into our space but it looks great and runs really well. You can occasionally hear the ice drop into the bin but overall is quiet and we love the LED lights and control panel to check and adjust temps.
                                We wanted the white color and the silver handle looks very sharp. Would buy again.

                                      The freezer and refrigerator work great! Our ice maker on the other hand does not. We have had repair techs out to our house 4 times to fix the ice maker. Three of the service calls were due to the ice maker failing to make ice. The last service call was a bit scarier. I woke up to water leaking and pooling onto my kitchen floor. Luckily it had just run an ice making cycle, but the water did not turn off. I pulled the refrigerator out from the wall and shutoff the water supply. Just wondering if i had not woke up when i did, would my kitchen have been flooded? Would my walls and cabinets be covered for damage? The technician installed two shims on the door and said it was fixed. Lets hope so.

                                            We have had it about a month and are, so far, very pleased with the quietness, looks and performance of this refrigerator. I could not give five stars because we did not hook-up the water or ice since these were the most criticized areas in the reviews I read before purchasing.

                                                        It has been quite awhile since I've purchased appliances, but I've never been told that I have to "break-in" the refrigerator. I've had 2 separate service companies come to my home because the doors do not line up correctly. The gasket around the freezer door is "smashed tight", but not on the refrigerator door. I was told that once the fridge is "broken-in", the gasket on the fridge door will eventually "smash tighter", therefore the doors will be even. One service company said I was lucky I didn't have slate floors because that would make it worse. Well, the last fridge I bought was put on a slate floor and we never had this problem with having to "break-in" the refrigerator so the doors would be even. They were even to begin with.
