Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Best all around

Submitted by UnomeasCH - 7/29/2019

I bought my refrigerator 2 years ago and I LOVE it. Plenty of space for what I need and I love the ice and water in the door.. I have owned several Whirlpool products and Whirlpool is the only brand I will buy.

In need of a refrigerator to replace a GE which I will not buy any more GE products! The led lights and icemaker in the freezer door are fantastic.

LOVE IT so far!

Submitted by GeoRich51 - 11/1/2018

I did a ridiculous amount of research and kept coming back to this one. I even bought another less-expensive Whirlpool model but returned it and upgraded to this one. SO GLAD I DID! It's a beautiful fridge--physically & operationally! I haven't had any of the issues that others giving it less ratings did. Yes, when the ice drops it makes some noise for about 2 seconds. Here's a list of all the things I like about it: - The "White Ice" color is just plain beautiful with the glossy white door and brushed stainless handles. - No fingerprints on this finish unlike the SS version. - Counter depth. - Very quiet. - Door mounted control panel is... Intuitive, allows use of all different sizes of containers, has cool features like a measuring display so you can tell how many ounces of water you're getting, easy to check/change temp for both sides and more. - It's interior is well organized and lit and the wine rack is a really nice touch. - Has a built-in water filter so bye-bye Brita! - Had a 10% discount coupon at Lowes and bought it on sale so got it at a great price that hasn't been beaten yet! - Free delivery and installation. Cons: - the only thing that I can think of is that the butter tray is a bit dinky but it'll do. If I change my mind on anything, I'll come back and revise this review.

Gorgeous and keeping groceries fresh longer!

Submitted by palalechat - 7/26/2018

I bought this model because I have limited space but wanted something really nice looking since my kitchen and dining area are open and so it's quite visible. I couldn't be more pleased. My groceries are already lasting three times as long in this fridge. The features I wanted that it has are side by side because I like an easily accessible, large freezer, and I like that it makes both cubed and crushed ice. That is so cool, har har! I also really like the configuration of the door shelves and that I can store tall items in one door bin. The only warning I would give is that the fridge area is relatively small compared to a full-size fridge. But if you have a smallish kitchen and want a super attractive, superbly high end fridge, this will be a great choice.

Great counter depth fridge

Submitted by Mamie Nagero - 1/24/2018

All of my major products are Whirlpool appliances, and this is my second counter depth whirlpool refrigerator. It has great features, but I wish it had the freezer baskets like previous incarnation. Otherwise it's a perfect refrigerator.

Looks great, good ice maker

3/21/2017

I cannot use the wheels to move the refrigerator to clean, as the wheels cannot be used because it will be out of balance. The interior is not well-designed for maximum storage. I wanted counter depth, but now I cannot open the freezer door completely.

Clean design

Submitted by Retired tooth lady - 3/14/2017

Needed to replace an old, leaking refrigerator. This has a clean look and is counterdepth. Only one issue. The freezer door does not open completely in my space, hitting the wall.

We really like the refrigerator except for the fact that if you don't hold on to the refrigerator door when it's open, it swings and hits the cupboards.

Pretty happy with the fridge, but the front does scratch easily.
