36” Whirlpool Counter depth refrig. Fits!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this side-by-side a month ago. Being counter depth and 21 cu.ft. It’s is naturally smaller than other refrigs. It was not hard to set up after delivery and fits my limited space nicely. I may order another freezer shelf and refrig door holder as this new frig was a bit of a downsize due to my limited space. Luckily there is room to add a bit more storage. The ice maker works well and I love the removable ice bin for easy access to carry ice to and fro.

    Great features! Easy access ice!

        Whirlpool counter depth refrigerator
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was perfect for our shallow kitchen space. Like others, we wish it came with an additional freezer shelf and top door shelf. They can be purchased separately.

          Small fridge but well laid out
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We had to get this smaller fridge because of the custom cabinets our builder failed to measure correctly for. I was very unhappy with cutting down on space inside the unit but no choice. That being said the unit is awesome with only a few things I don’t prefer. Pros: It runs very cool, the in the door shelves are AMAZING, it’s super versality and you can remove and reposition everything including the crisper and deli meat drawers. Cons: the ice maker is not fast, the water dispenser is not accurate as far as how much water it dispenses and the freezer drawer is so small another shelf would have been more useful.

            Counter depth is a winner!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this model when I had the kitchen remodeled. I have a small kitchen and I wanted all new appliances. The unit fit perfect and the counter depth was the right choice in this application.

              Exactly what I needed
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I replaced a 15 year old refrigerator, I chose the counter depth and I’m absolutely pleased with this unit, the unit is quiet and has plenty of storage for a family of 2 to 3 people, it fit in my space absolutely beautifully and everything works as it should. I have a galley style kitchen so the counter depth worked beautifully for me. Icemaker and water dispenser works absolutely perfectly, I’m not sure why everybody says the icemaker or the refrigerator is so loud however all of them are pretty loud if you ask me and if you’re dropping ice into a container it’s certainly going to make some noise. Refrigerators are pretty expensive and a big purchase, I’m very happy with my unit so far and I don’t anticipate any problems with it.

                Fingerprint Resistant??
                I had the refrigerator delivered yesterday. Why in the heck is the fingerprint resistant panels on the side rather than the front where it's needed? One day and fingerprints galore. Be sure to check that the handles are installed correctly. There is a slight difference if one is installed installed upside down. Also I wish the online manuals would clearly explain that there isn't a power switch. I looked for one and only realized that the refrigerator is on once the temperatures are set. Took over an hour to convince me it was working as it takes that long to even sense that the interior is cooling.

                  questioonable feature
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this less than a month ago. inside of the fresh food compartment at the bottom and behind the lower crisper drawer there is a roll of tubing that is not on the display model that we bought. what is this and why is it not mentioned in the manual? here is a picture
                    The top 3 shelves of the fridge freezes the foods
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The fridge is 2 weeks old and all of our foods on top 3 shelves freezes! Very disappointed
