      A good update on an old model - with some issues

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      We bought what was basically a 10-year newer model of our old refrigerator. For the most part it was an improvement - the water/ice dispenser area is cleaner, the displays are good, and functionally it works great. Plus it is one of 3 models that will fit the opening in our kitchen! But. Some changes are not as welcome. The butter/dairy tray in our previous model is gone, so we had to go back to a covered butter dish. There are fewer drawers and shelves in the freezer, forcing us to change how we had things arranged (try finding the thing you want in a hurry before the sauce burns!). Since this is a brand new model, finding replacement/additional parts is impossible, and the ones we did find that MIGHT match were horrible expensive because there are no generic versions. The water filter is in a more convenient place (inside at the top of the fridge portion) but it's half the size and I just KNOW we'll have to replace it more often. But generally (despite my gripes) we are pleased with this model, and would probably pick it again (plus it was on sale!) if we needed to.

      Good refrigerator, but some issues.

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      Performs well and is quiet. Looks good. Ice dispenser spills ice on floor when filling cup. The container holding the ice is pretty small. I thought ice production was initially slow too, but haven't paid much attention to that so could be wrong. Molding around door has cosmetic issue in upper right corner. When I went back to the store I noticed the floor model had same issue. So it wasn't just mine. Not enough shelves provided in freezer. Usable space in freezer is limited because you have to stack everything. They are $80 each for additional. You will need 2 more. The refrigerator door could probably use another shelf too. I really don't know if I would recommend this refrigerator or not. I would recommend looking at it closely compared to others in same price range.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Good exterior design/loud ice maker

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      Just purchased a new house and the kitchen design had a cutout box area for a refrigerator already made. The counter depth was the primary reason we purchased the fridge, along with the fact that all the other appliances that came with the home were Whirlpool. Sits fairly flush however did not consider the spacing behind refrigerator cannot sit flush against the wall to allow space for the hoses in the back for the water line. Which does not allow the fridge to be TRULY counter depth. Not a big deal though. However, my one knock on it is the sound it makes when processing ice. Not the ice maker dropping ice into the tray, but for some reason when then ice maker is turned on, it makes a loud buzzer sound which I assume is the line allowing water into the freezer for the ice.

      Nice Fridge

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the ice is noisy. Not that I don't expect to hear it at all, but I live alone and on several occasions in the middle of the night, the ice drops into the ice holder and it scares me. I don't feel like I should be able to hear that with two walls in between and doors closed. Other than that, it's a really nice fridge. I went from a large SubZero to this, so I was a little concerned about being able to fit everything in it, but it is pretty spacious, and that hasn't been an issue. The ice maker does take up quite a bit of space in the freezer side, but there is still plenty of room in the freezer for me.

      Be sure you can work with the size

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      It's okay. Small, because it's counter-depth (ok for us because we don't want one that protrudes into the kitchen very far and have another freezer & fridge in the garage), the freezer storage is tiny because of the ice/water in the door, and the front/bottom is not the most attractive thing, a more traditional 'grate' style bottom would have been a more polished look. It appears to function quite well in the 3 weeks we've had it; in 3 YEARS I'll know for sure. If you're looking at this, be sure the small size is something you can work with. I'd recommend it to a friend only if there are no more than 3 people in the family OR they have auxillary cold storage beyond this.

      Good Quality, Smart Organization, Good value

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      After having this fridge now for about a month, I really like it. It looks good and people comment when they come to visit. The water and ice dispenser is very nice- many options, and automated fill level is really convenient. Just set a glass, set level and walk away while it fills. The best part is the way the shelves, drawers and door storage is organized. it makes for a very efficient use of space, visibility and accessibility of items.its very easy to see everything with LED lighting in different areas. The price is a great value, especially when on sale.

      Upgraded kitchen appliances

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      After 16 years with bisque appliances I upgraded to Whirlpool Black Stainless Steel. Have only had them a week but so far I am thrilled with counter depth side by side fridge, dishwasher with stainless steel interior, convection/regular range, and overhead mounted microwave. My sales representative pointed me to just the right items to fulfill my needs without breaking the bank. Delivery and installation was AWSOME and as promised. The black stainless looks great with my new granite countertops.

      Good size, adjustable shelves

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      I like this new refrigerator and the freezer has lots of room since the ice maker in in the door. Whirlpool put in a air filter compartment but, does not include the filters with the refrigerators and my store had a hard time finding one to give me as they have to be ordered and are considered not necessary. Why put them in if they aren't needed or wanted? I prefer having that filter which is in the side wall to having a box of baking soda taking up space.
