Customer Questions & Answers

Does this refrigerator have an internal water dispenser?

Asked by: Frotho
Just for ice maker. The thinking is people buying higher-end refrigerators get separate filtered water dispensation elsewhere in the kitchen.

Anyone have pictures of this installed?

I like the look of an integrated fridge but don't like the price. This one looks like it may work. But I'd like to see it installed.
Asked by: 2016homebuild
Read my review (submitted today, so may not be up yet). It's not really "built-in" the way it protrudes. Idiotic.

Customer Reviews

42 in. W 24.2 cu. ft. Built-In French Door Refrigerator in Panel Ready, Platinum Interior is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfactory The 24.2 Cu. Ft. 42" Width Built-In Panel Ready we installed performs exactly as advertised. It is quiet, the doors work well ( even with heavy panels) and the interior design of the shelves are very functional. Ice maker works very well. We were able to design the cabinets to accommodate a flush installation and allow the full 135 deg door opening that allows the door to stay open. Interestingly, the shallow 24" depth that seemed like a limitation is in practice more convenient because of improved access to the back. The white interior is fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Great Product, but beware of Home Depot in this case A really nice product, with good finish quality and shelves and doors just right for the products we use. The LED lights are a nice touch vs. a single bulb. BEWARE: Even though the Home Depot web site asks you if you want a "free hookup" and a $15 haul away of your old refrigerator, THEY WILL NOT DO IT. Home Depot DOES not perform this service for built-in fridges, even though their web site advertises as such. When I bought this item, I was expecting Home Depot to set-up the fridge and haul away a similar model, but they refused and first told me I had not requested such a service. Later they admitted I did, but that they would not perform the service. Buy the fridge if the price is right, but all Home Depot will do is drop it off in your garage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job We have been using this model for about 3 weeks now and it is working just fine. The layout of the interior makes storing things easy. The way it maintains the cold temperature constantly is very helpful, especially in keeping things fresh and usable. The ice maker started slowly but now that bin is filled completely. It is also much easier to find things. I recommend getting your warranty from Kitchenaid rather than the sales vendor. One caveat: to get to the water filter, you must fully lie face down on the floor as it is under the freezer compartment. Thankfully you only have to do it twice a year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice appliance with some caveats. This refrigerator has a lot of room for all your items. Lots of shelf space on the doors and the shelves. Several drawers allow segregating various meats, cheeses, fruits, etc. The freezer, too, has ample space for most needs. The ice drawer is quite large and is needed in our family of 5. Instructions about installing the air filter are completely wrong. There is no such place along the back wall on the ceiling on which to snap the filter. I just put it on a shelf. Note: we purchased the model in which we put in custom panels. There are no handles that come with this model. They are $270 extra when purchased from KitchenAide and possibly more if you go to a specialty store to find handles that match the knob decor in your kitchen. To change the water filter, one must lie down completely on your stomach and look under the freezer to find where it goes. A major inconvenience!!! I'd advise purchasing the warranty directly from KitchenAide which was much cheaper than the price offered by the appliance store. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing but problems, don't buy Purchased 18 months ago and got crack in frame and had it replaced. 2nd fridge broke 4 months later and needs a new mother board and more. Warranty is covering the repair but who wants to spend $8k on a fridge and have this many problems. If I could do it all over again I wouldn't purchase this fridge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely noisy. Service had to come out once due to freezer not working. Said the noise is nor... Extremely noisy. Service had to come out once due to freezer not working. Said the noise is normal. Tremendously high pitch loud obnoxious noise whenever the fridge is running which is almost always. Stay away from this item if you intend to have it inside the house. Might be acceptable if it was in the garage or outside, but definitely does not work for indoors. Invest your money elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits nicely, very quiet I actually have a stainless steel built in, not panel ready. I now wish I had gone with the panel ready, as the stainless is not fingerprint proof... it looks messy all the time. It holds so much more than my old side by side, Its very quiet, even when the compressor is running. I did buy the extended warranty as every repairman and or installers who has been to my house since buying a new set of kitchen appliances, said to get the warranty... Kitchenaid and others don't seem to hold up well. So far 2 out of 3 appliances needed service right out of the box, but not the refrigerator. The ice drawer is not convenient, and has no easy shut off like my SubZero. Wish I had gotten ice and water in the door now... It's a pain to get to the ice.
