          Horrible design , don’t understand the high price
          This refrigerator comes with my brand new house and I hate it. The back is curve but the shelf don’t meet all the way and things keep falling off. The door is awkward very easy to not close properly. The door flap is falling apart and it’s less than one year.

            Quality and design issues with this fridge
            Beautiful Fridge - Had it installed about 6 months ago. Within 3 months the seals around the fridge door have split. Like other reviews, the shelf design misses the mark. There's a 3 inch gap between the back of the shelf and the back of the fridge - wasted space and allows items to fall off the back - super annoying.
              Rust on doors
              At 3.5 months after delivery the stainless is rusting. Manufacturer says “ too bad “ “tough luck” cosmetic 30 day warranty Never again Whirlpool

                Very happy customers
                (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) We had the fridge now for 5 months and are very satisfied. Ice and water systems work great, and the double doors work much better in our renovated kitchen.

                  So nice, we bought it twice!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We had this refrigerator at our old house. When we just couldn't take our old (much smaller) refrigerator we went shopping. Saw a similar style, but saw the Kitchenaid and thought since we had such good luck with our old one, we should stick with a winner!
                    Stay away from this fridge
                    Nothing but problems with this fridge from day 1. Doors don't line up properly right hand door gasket keeps ripping, (I've ha 5 gaskets replaced in less than 5 years) I've had1 door replaced along with hinges poor design of water dispenser. Fridge is not stable when closing Doors (woobles)
                      Best counter depth frig with 72" height and great
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Purchased in April 2023 and everything working great

                        Great investment
                        (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) Bought a month ago. Water is not installed yet. Can't wait for filtered water and ice. Still sitting in the entrance while the kitchen is being finished. Careful when you move it as it scratched my hardwood floor.

                          Great fridge
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m about 4 months in to using my new fridge. I thought by going counter depth that I would be sacrificing space, but I’m happy to say I did not. I’m happy with the configuration and the size of the drawers (especially the cheese drawer!). It looks great, keeps the temp constant and lets me know when I leave the door open. The inside water dispenser keeps the outside sleek and clean). I like the configuration of the freezer. I keep a lot of foods frozen, so I do have to use my garage freezer as well, but it’s easy to find things due to the configuration.

                            Great fridge, but with some design flaws
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The refrigerator is great but there are a few design flaws. One - the glass shelves in the main area do not go all the way back to the back "wall" of the unit. The amount of "space" between the back of the shelf and refrigerator is anywhere from 2" to 3" - Issue? First of all, things fall of the back of the shelf if you aren't careful. Lots of bottles are smaller than 2 inches! Second, wasted space! The other thing that I wish was different is the freezer drawer. There are several compartments, sliding shelves, etc., but the main drawer compartment in the very bottom has a divider right down the middle. I'm not sure why the divider is there and I've wanted to remove it but it doesn't seem possible. If the divider was not there, larger items, such as a slab of ribs, or a long package of chicken, could fit easily in that space...one big drawer would be great! Too many compartments takes away from storage space!
