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.

Fits 69 inch space!

Submitted by Karmin - 7/22/2019

We love our new fridge! We initially bought it since it was the only model we could find that would fit in a space with a max height of 69 inches for a he 36 inch width fridges. It is a beautiful fridge and we love the counter depth feature too. Well configured, quiet, and functioning well.

Great Features

Submitted by NFish - 5/31/2019

My old frig stopped working, and I looked at many refrigerators before choosing my Whirlpool. I love in a condo and it had to fit under a cupboard, and luckily the size was perfect. It is very spacious inside and has a clean look inside and out.

Very noisey operation!!

Submitted by denny18/75 - 5/20/2019

We bought this refrigerator about a month ago and as soon as we plugged it in we realized we made a mistake...way too much compressor noise! We had hoped it would eventually be somewhat quieter, but NO if anything it is worse!! Will never buy a Whirlpool refrigerator again. Shame on Lowe's store for selling such a bum fridge!

1st time appliance owner, and couldn't be happier

Submitted by Melissa52 - 5/10/2019

I am 52 years old, and had NEVER picked out my own appliances. I always had hand-me-downs or appliances that came with the house. I researched like crazy before making this purchase, and couldn't be happier. This unit is amazing! Just enough bells and whistles.the stainless steel is beautiful and the "no fingerprints" is BONUS! I was missing 2 shelves from the unit, but I called Whirlpool and easy peasy, shelves arrived a few days later at no cost!! The customer service was awesome! I tell all my friends, Whirlpool is the way to go!

Shocking experience to say the very least

Submitted by HCKflorida - 4/23/2019

I bought this refrigerator for our new house 8 months ago but have NOT YET RECEIVED one that isn't defective. I'm beside myself with the shocking change in the lack of quality control come from Whirlpool (my go to company all these years for appliances). Why on earth I can't get a refrigerator delivered to me after paying for it, after 7 attempt and wasting my time is absoluting beyond me.what's worse is the fact that I shopped quite some time before my house was finished to come up with what we purchased. being that the builder left such a tight space, we were limtied to begin with. I was told however by a Whirlpool customer service employee to get a refund from my store and go somewhere else. But I can't thank my salesman enough for his help in this and hanging in there to help me figure this rediculous situation out, so no i'd rather stick with my store and find out what quality control issues can be resolved with Whirlpool before I look into the decision of terrible Samsung being my choices now. This counter depth contemporary CHIZ is nice looking and love the fingerprint resistant type stainless, not to forget the great measured fill feature as well... but gosh fire the first graders building them and send me one that looks like the pictures please. I gave this 1 star because I had to. And that is also towards the manufacturing quality mostly.

Limited Freezer space

Submitted by GilO - 4/15/2019

I was disappointed with the limited amount of freezer space. The refrigerator door shelf containers are thin plastic. One cracked in the first month.

Basic refrigerator at an entry level price

Submitted by cmadden - 3/12/2019

I have had this unit for approx. 2 months. Sleek design, low profile, counter depth, which I needed for my older home, had to customize upper cabinet. You will need to order 2 extra glass shelves for the freezer $$$ and ice maker is very noisy, so shut it off when you're not using it.

Great smaller fridge

Submitted by Pam54 - 3/4/2019

We previously had an expensive Samsung which lasted about 2 yrs. We wanted a side-by-side and like that part. It is on the smaller side though and it's noisy. Overall we like it - basis first fridge for new homeowners just starting out

I am Mostly happy with this fridge

Submitted by Kirst542 - 1/4/2019

This fridge looks nice and works well. My only complaint is that the paddles to push for ice and water are hard to use if you do not push them in the perfect spot. However, it still works. Just beware, the freezer space is limited, don't try to fit a large frozen pizza in it!

Submitted by Kirk Crawford - 12/24/2018

We like it, but it makes some noise, it is slow to make ice, replacement shelves are very expensive. Otherwise, it's just fine.

Perfect refrigerator for our small space

Submitted by Maggies mom - 11/19/2018

Love this refrigerator..it fits perfectly in our kitchen that has a narrow walk space between the cabinets and the island. I also have built in overhead cabinets and this refrigerator slipped right into place. Love the see throygh shelves - I do wish they were able to be moved but they are in good positions. The refrigerator space is excellent but freezer space is tight.

Fantastic contemporary upgrade

Submitted by DJRA - 10/21/2018

I received this on August 29th after a factory delay in shipping. It is well worth the wait. My kitchen looks so much better with the new look. I bought it to replace a 15 years old fridge. I love it. I had to order more shelves for the fridge and freezer.

Would have been 5 stars

Submitted by Lizzie2018 - 8/15/2018

I like everything about this refrigerator - appearance and performance - except that there are not enough freezer shelves! With space lost to the icemaker in the door and one-third of a shelf taken up by a light Whirlpool should have provided 5 shelves instead of 3.
