We chose this because of the clean style and internal water dispenser. There is a small price to pay in that the water dispenser requires a button to be pushed which usually requires the hand not holding a glass also be used.

I read reports that this unit was noisy and completely disagree.

I've only owned this unit about a month and encountered no problems. I do find that it is so easy to move that it sometimes rolls an inch towards me when I open a door.

This is our 3rd fridge in 30 years. Our first non "top freezer" model. Always White.
Hadn't planned on getting one, but the previous kenmore had too many issues and food wasn't cold anymore.
Over time I may change this review as we have only had it a few days but I thought I would write what I noticed already. ratings may go up.
I have a family owned appliance store I trust. This was recommended when I said what I was looking for. (no ice/water in door that always gets on the floor). I had trouble at first placing all my door door items in this fridge, especially the tall ones. Milk is on shelf as there is not room for 2 gallons in 1 door shelf. some other items also have been moved to top shelf. LOVE the eye level, as everyone else does.
Seems to be working wonderfully and is more spacious in fridge than I had thought.

My concern is the freezer. It isn't squared off like the on top one so I will have to figure out logistics (although I also love the fruit bins that allow fruit to not be piled up high-tradeoff).
The negative I hadn't considered is access to ice. Inconvenient for me (I am not short), but very uncomfortable for the taller hubby. Stoop down, pull out drawer, reach and pull out another drawer, reach in the back corner for ice. Certainly understandable inconvenience. We are looking at options to move cubes to another area once formed, for access.
I recommend trying this out, and getting the ice bin out if you have food around it, before buying. This is the first appliance or big ticket item I have purchased alone. Hubby wanted inexpensive top freezer like before. I didn't. He only uses freezer for ice, ice cream, and veggies. That is daily at least.

Plastic hinge failure

By 

from Grand haven

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II French Door Refrigerator:

We bought our refrigerator 3 years ago, and have had to have service twice, once when the icemaker failed and now the plastic hinge the operates the deli drawer hasbroken. Quite flimsey, should be metal or thicker plastic.

Full of poor design issues

By 

from Vancouver, WA

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II French Door Refrigerator:

We purchased this a year ago, when our old fridge died suddenly. It looks pretty & hold lots of food, but there are MANY little issues that are frustrating. I'd NEVER have bought this model if I'd have known all these issues. We erroneously trusted the Kitchenaid brand.

*Left door won't shut all the way on it's own. It always catches & you have to push it closed the rest of the way.

*Inside water button ergonomically designed wrong, button is above spigot so you have to use 2 hands to fill container, at a sideways awkward angle.

*Right crisper drawer won't open unless BOTH front doors are open.

*Filter mechanism is bulky & blocks part of the interior.

*Shiny front surface shows EVERY fingerprint/smudge. Side panels have a pattern on them that disguises much better.

*It's VERY noisy, lots of humming/buzzing/whirring/gurgling noises. Not "loud" volume wise, but makes all kinds of sounds, where we rarely heard our old model.

Seriously wish we'd have picked something else.

Great Refrigerator, Bad Gaskets

By 

from Vancouver, WA

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II French Door Refrigerator:

We've had the refrigerator for 2 years and are very happy with it, however the door seals are completely shot. This should not happen in such a short time. I'm guessing that the wear put on them by the french doors was not considered in the design.

Nice Design But Some Issues

By 

from Albany, NY

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II French Door Refrigerator:

Have had this refrigerator for almost a year. We are very happy with the space layout - many options for storage and excellent access.

Issues
- Each ice cube it makes produces a loud clunk.
- Ice is in the back of the freezer, so must pull the drawer out all the way to get a few cubes.
- You can barely hear the warning sound if door is ajar.
- There is a very low level high pitch sound all the time.
- The freezer drawer is hard to pull out and push in when full (which it always is).
- Filtered ice water spout is inside on our model and pours very slowly. You must leave the door open the whole time you are filling a glass. So, we never use it.

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II French Door Refrigerator:

This unit came down to proper operating temps quickly and has stayed there consistently. The previous frig needed constant attention to get it to correct temps and keeping it there. This unit unit is great looking, and works well. We are very happy with it.

Good ... would have been great if ...

By 

from Bonita Springs, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II French Door Refrigerator:

... I hadn't had to have service come multiple times to try and fix a 'knocking' noise when I dispersed water. I had the same refrigerator in my last home and never had a problem with it. The issue was finally resolved and they found that the 'bladder' in past refrigerators had been changed out for 'lines' which was causing the knocking noise. They replaced the lines with a bladder and voila; no noise. Other than that, happy with this refrigerator/freezer as I was with my last.

Nice fridge

By 

from webster, ny

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II French Door Refrigerator:

I like the look at size of the fridge. The drawers seem a little flimsy and don't exactly line up perfectly when you shut them. Surface still gets a lot of smudging. Overall satisfied.

Nice features

By 

from Minneapolis

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II French Door Refrigerator:

Love the french door design with the freezer on the bottom. The large slide-out drawer is a winner for large trays and pans, and lanky produce like rhubarb.
Still getting used to the water dispenser inside, but I still prefer it over having it in the door.
