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. Read complete review

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.

I purchased this counter depth, french door unit after replacing a similar sized unit in somewhat a space constrained area. I really wanted to stick to an American/Iowa made product but can't help note the many deficiencies of the buying experience. First, there was very limited sizing options among all Maytag/Whirlpool products, this was the smallest but I still had to make modifications to my existing mill work due to door swings (hinge swings outside of plane). I wish there was a slightly smaller counter depth unit...not everyone is looking solely for size/volume. The worst part was the defective seal on the freezer which caused significant ice buildup particularly in the summer. How could this defect be on a product that has been around for decades...this is not acceptable. Its seems Whirlpool could have fixed this design flaw ages ago, but no. Interior design/engineering is decent. It is hard to compare other product models without having used them, I just know this product did not meet expectations.

Not so Great replacement for my Maytag

By 

from Ventura, CA

I have only had this for one day, and I am not happy. I replaced my 10 year old Maytag, which is almost identical in looks. I had hoped that after 10 years there would have been improvements, but I was wrong. First thing that I noticed....the sides and top of the fridge are textured, but the front is smooth, WHY? The handles are metal, and they are COLD to the touch. Makes me not want to open the fridge, or freezer. The shelves are too short and there is a large gap in the back, where many things can fall through.... and they are in the way of the water dispenser, making it difficult to use. THAT is my favorite feature, and one reason why I selected this model. I did not want an external water dispenser that did not chill the water.

We had a space limitation and the whirlpool fit perfectly. The counter depth make the kitchen look better and adds room. The adjustable shelves really helps with storage of beverage containers.

Pretty Nice

By 

from MI (now)

Verified Buyer

This refrigerator came in a new fifth wheel (RV) we ordered from the DRV factory. Its very nice and I would have given it 5 stars except the freezer has something going on that caused the light to not work. We tested the bulb and this isn't the problem. Other than this we are really starting to love the features of this residential refrigerator in our new RV in which we live full time now.
