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.

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.

Quiet, attractive, energy efficient, and functional

Comments about Whirlpool Black French Door Counter Depth Refrigerator:

This unit came installed in an upper end RV we purchased. Its overall size, weight, functionality, and efficiency make it a very nice feature feature in the RV. From our experience with it so far, it would be a model we would consider for installation in our home if it wasn't for our need of a larger one for our family's size and day-to-day use. Having the chilled and filtered water dispenser inside the door keeps small children from messing with it. When we finish our basement it would be our choice over a small, under-the-counter one because of its refrigerator capacity and the freezer would serve to replace the under-utilized chest freezer presently located in the basement. For the price and the reasons provided above, it is an excellent value.

Stuck with a LEMON!!

By 

from Gig Harbor, WA

Comments about Whirlpool Black French Door Counter Depth Refrigerator:

Beautiful fridge - perfect for my small kitchen. A few weeks after I got it, I noticed a high frequency noise that cycled on and off. Sometimes I can even hear it from my bedroom . Called Whirlpool and they gave me a repair number to call. The guy has been out here twice. Of course the noise didn't come on while he was here. I had recorded the noise, but he said he didn't know what it was. He also discovered that the freezer door was bowed and wouldn't seal properly. They could order a new door, it would probably take 6 weeks to get it. Whirlpool basically says a new door can be ordered, but the noise issue is not their problem. In my opinion, WHIRLPOOL DOES NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCTS!!

I love that this is counter depth and no water functions in the door. It is rather loud when on or filling water dispenser. Also, the no bottom part on the freezer is a little cheap and odd... just wire baskets....

Functions satisfactorily but...

By

Comments about Whirlpool Black French Door Counter Depth Refrigerator:

Needed counter depth. Limited selection. Would have preferred single door /bottom freezer for ease of use in my kitchen. Did not come with the rubber liners for the door bins which my old one had and make clean up much easier. Had to order separately from a different brand and they were costly and difficult to find. Customer service was useless and rude. Whirlpool should be improving products and service as they have increased prices. Haven't had it long enough to fairly rate its performance but would think twice before buying Whirlpool again. Tried to be patriotic by buying American made but am disappointed.
