Attactive functional counter depth refigerator

After extensive research for a counter depth French door refrigerator with the ice and water inside I decided this was our best bet. No refrigerator of this type gets really great ratings.

We have had this installed about one month so no long term performance can be commented on. If it does well over time I could improve my rating.

The refrigerator looks good. It was in good shape when installed. I do have some comments based not only on my own but on my extensive exhaustive reading of everyone's comments on this model. I mean I really read every last review on every site.

It is magnetic so I tried a couple of magnets on it. One small one slipped and scratched the door in a distressing way. I am trying to remove this 6 inch scratch and so far have removed a bit of it. I recommend - don't try any magnets on it. It scratches very easily.

I like the clean lines of no water and ice on the door.
Plus we had a different brand there side by side and the water/ice maker was removed and dysfunctional for several years. It not only needed constant and futile repair, but collected mildew horribly even when it was shut off. It is much better to have the water and ice inside in my opinion.

The water works very well. Follow the instructions to run out gallons of water when you first start it and throw it out, plus the first ice cubes. The water tastes very good, it comes out at about 50 degrees (I got that figure from the manual) and ours does not really drip when you remove the water container you are using to get water. Maybe less than one second. If you are an average size adult and position yourself correctly , you can only open the left door to remove water. It does take two hands and some hand strength to get water. The ice is easily accessible in the freezer drawer.

I have found that I need to use the left door like this: Open the left door, take out what you need, close it,then open and then shut the right door so the seals are done properly. Or, just always open both doors to start with. If you try to close just the left door, the right door may pop open and you may not notice it. You do not want to damage the seals as they will have to be replaced if damaged.

We position things we need the most on the right side of the refrigerator so you can just open and shut that door. Yes you do have to open both doors to use the wide deli/meat drawer. It is a great drawer for cold cuts, cheese, tortillas, etc and I push the divider over so I can defrost wrapped meats in the right side. We had people over and it was nice to use the drawer to put a large platter of appetizers in there.
Compared to my 36 inch wide old side by side counter depth, I believe I have as much room in the refrigerator area but less in the freezer. I also know from comments that you cannot overload the freezer. For this reason we also bought a 15 cubic foot garage freezer/refrigerator and this is an idea amount of space. I can store things in the freezer out in the garage that would be too much for this freezer inside.Plus cases of water, beer, etc. I try to keep things we need in the next week or two in the freezer inside and they seem to fit well. You could fit a turkey in there if you needed to, but I would not buy a giant one!

The lighting is good in both compartments. It seems to be keeping the preset temps of 0 degrees and 38 degrees well and so far we have not seen condensation. As it is still cold here that is not a surprise.

Some people have lamented the fact that the shelves have a gap at the back. They certainly do and small things can fall through. Two solutions: 1.Put large things in the back 2. I got two turntables that I use that corral smaller items and use those. That works very well for us. It is hard to know why it was designed this way. We did move the shelves around to accommodate differing sizes of things and I would not buy a refrigerator that did not allow re positioning of shelves. Between the shelves and the door bins I can fit everything we usually use in the refrigerator part.

So, so far, good. Some design things I do not like, like the short shelves and the need to open both doors for that deli drawer, but I did know this before we purchased this appliance. I am upset it is so easily scratched. The magnet that scratched the front was very small and took less than one second to scratch several inches, so I'd be careful around the SS finish. I will continue to try to use approved gentle methods to remove this scratch.

Some people have said their refrigerator is noisy, so far (only one month) I would say it is quiet. Sure it makes noises at some times but all refrigerators do that!

Overall, I like this refrigerator quite well and hope it keeps performing well. If it does, we will be very happy with it. There are two people in our household so if you have more you might want to think about the size of this and if you can put an additional smaller refrigerator somewhere in your home.

Greatly disappointed

This French door refrigerator came in a high end fifth wheel camping trailer. The doors are not level so they are not sealing correctly which makes condensation run into the seal of the freezer drawer then runs on the floor and into the freezer and then freezes on the top of the drawer. RV customer service won't do anything even though it still under warranty so they have just given us a whirlpool number to get in touch with you. We are sincerely hoping you can correct this problem.

Roomy sleek efficient functions & features

By 

from Myrtle Beach

Verified Buyer

We replaced a 10+ year old GE that was not keeping food cold. Temp computer kept flexing causing food to spoil. The guys delivered early AM rolled out unit we quickly cleaned up area while they installed new water line placed right behind unit. Leveled installed shelving set temp hooked up water checked for leaks & moved old unit into garage that we use for extra beverages & freezing. We like smooth sleek black finish that matches our new dishwasher. Water & Ice maker located inside keeping the outside clean look, spacious for inside storage. Alarms works great however left door has a flap to enhance sealing however I thing the left needs to close first to prevent doors popping back open. Otherwise very nice storage, with temp control drawers, water dispenser w/. freezer in bottom pull out draw w/ice maker includes option to shut off ice maker & use for more storage. The temp settings & other storage drawers work nicely with alarm to alert doors are ajar. Runs quiet looks nice and please this is a counter depth unit. Measure your space you have to place your unit. We almost shopped performance, style and price overlooking the critical measurements..until we had the specs printed & the salesman stressed to measure measure measure. We loved one unit so much we were making ourselves believe it would fit while in many instances in life size does or may not matter, for fridge it does !! We considered 5 inch deeper unit, we said let's get it. The salesman recommended go home slide out our current unit out the 5 inch distance. We got home rolled out our fridge, the doors opened into the middle of the kitchen. Wow he was on the money. We love this unit & recommend this if you like a clean exterior with two door /freezer below still have water dispenser /ice maker inside. Works great looks nice quiet fits like a glove due to salesman although that was a few extra bucks. But again note the left door with flap could potentially pop open if not closed first or forcefully.

Perfect Fit

By 

from Mount Juliet, TN

Verified Buyer

We originally returned a traditional depth Whirlpool refrigerator because it just stuck out too far. This one fits perfect and looks great. The inside water feature is fantastic and overall it was the best option for us. Keep in mind that you have to economize space in this fridge but that's not always a bad thing.

And so far no problems... so no complaints. My other half thinks it looks larger from the outside than it actually is on the interior... but we have had "overcrodwing" issues at all

Very satisfied so far

By 

from Albuquerque NM

Verified Buyer

Purchased this refrigerator a couple months ago and so far am very happy with it. It's roomy and easy to see things at a glance, so you don't have to keep the doors open long. It's quieter than our previous refrigerator. The only thing I would change is the size of of the humidity controlled drawers for fruits and veggies--wish they were deeper. Can't comment on long term reliability yet, but so far so good.
