Sleek Design and Great Performance

Originally, I was looking for a stainless refrigerator at the right price with an ice/water dispenser on the door.  Most refrigerators had gaudy looking dispensers.  I was ready to settle until I learned that Sears offered several models with an internal water dispenser.  The pros to this are many: no need for a space-hogging freezer built into the door, no ugly dispenser on the outside of the door, looks very attractive, the water comes gushing from the internal dispenser, and it was a few hundred dollars cheaper than comparable dispenser-on-door models.  

The refrigerator space is cavernous which is great for the average homeowner; I tend to stock the fridge with many more items than the freezer.  My one gripe with this model is that when you slide the freezer drawer, ice cubes tend to spill onto the floor. 

Don't let the stock photos throw you...the stainless lines are brushed horizontally (not vertically).

2004 identical model, compressor now dead-Kenmore 596.75504400

I bought an identical model of this refrigerator back in June 2004. It was our first one-- last was a 34 yr old model that was both scary and faithful.

Last month- June 2011-- the compressor start capacitor went out, so I replaced it. This past week- July- the same noise started again, and now I'm told by the service tech that the compressor itself is dying, and may have another week left.

Needless to say, I am confused and seriously irritated. How in the world could old technology make a refrigerator that could last 34 years, and new technology can't make one that will last 7 years?

I was so excited when we got this thing I couldn't contain myself. Now.... I really wish I could get a replacement that'd last....

Thank you sears for making a fancy pile of .....

Do us all a favor-- make refrigerators that will last. This is ridiculous. You charge $1200-$2600 and they die way too young.

Lots of Space!

I chose this refrigerator at the builders design center and I am so glad I did! With having the water dispenser and ice dispenser inside allows for so much food space and much slicker design!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Perfection for my family!

We bought this refrigerator when we moved in and bought our new house. It's amazing! The water filtration is amazing for having well water. The freezer is a little odd shaped and some things don't fit well. But overall, love, love, love it!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Ice dam

Looks beautiful. Worked fine for a year. Now my ice maker doesn't work. I have ice build up at the bottom of the freezer. I called in a tech, he said I need a new ice maker. Then he pinched my water line and didn't replace it. Now I have a puddle of water everyday at the corner of my floor.

Good Replacement

Enjoying the wide space of this French door model. We definitely love the Stainless look in our kitchen. Two minor flaws if you can call them that: Loud water filling of ice maker (caught off guard can cause you jump) and odd placement of temperature control at front middle of top shelf makes it difficult to maneuver tall items around (items need to be removed to be able to pull out others so as not to tip them over to get them out).

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Lots of space for storage, wife is a baker and she is happy with the large area to store her dessert

Wife enjoys having space for her full size sheet cakes, also for her weeding cake, the shelves are removable. Lots of space for everything, we enjoy the deli meat and cheese tray. We can keep everything organized in its own space. We are happy to have bought this model and style.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Looks beautiful, seal ripped immed, control board broke 4 yrs in

The seal ripped after about 6 months. The control boards both had to be replaced at 4 yrs, expensive repair. Looks beautiful. The long drawer in the bottom of the fridge is great. Like the drawers in the doors are deep enough to hold a gallon of milk.

Have loved the refrigerator since it was installed. The features are what we were looking for the amount of usable space is great. Like not having the ice and water dispenser taking up space in the refrigerator.

My wife says this product fills all her needs.

My wife is extremely satisfied with our new Whirpool 3-French door refrigerator. She is small in stature and having the freezer on the bottom suits her very well. Having both filtered water and ice cubes is great and the interior arrangement is very functional and allows us to use the space to best advantage. Lastly, the price was very competitive and we were able to get the refrigerator delived within two working days.

Awkward

The ice bin is in the back of the freezer, hard for kids to reach. Unit is noisy. Freezer drawer is heavy, kids are constantly not closing it all the way. Configuration of shelves in fridge is awkward. Not many choices for configuration. Water dispenser is very hard to depress in in an awkward spot to fill a pitcher.

excellent fridge - saved tons of money on electric bill

Beautiful fridge & features, quiet, simple, air circulation is excellent - We've had ours for 2+ years with no problems. The door shelves for the milk could be a tad bigger - it doesn't always fit depending on the shape of 1 gallon containers.

piece of junk

Bought this 1 1/2 years ago. Just had a $232 service call so the repairman could unclog the drain tube that everyone else is complaining about. It's obviously a lousy design. A reputable company would do something to correct the design for existing users without charging them $232 for a fix that may not last very long. At the very least, they could put some instructions on their useless web page on how to fix it.

Left door doesn't close with normal force. Puddle of water ruins floors

Water runs on the floor from build up in the freezer compartment. Looks like a lot of people have the same problem. I will never buy anything from this company ever again. With the help of YouTube, I fixed it, but you shouldn't have too. What happens is the drain hole in the freezer in the unit gets plugged with ice and when it auto-defrosts the water has nowhere to go expect through your door on to your floor. You have to clear it and put maybe a zip-tie in there so you can manually clear it from inside if it happens again.

Quite a revelation

Never had a refrigerator with this configuration before, and wish now we always had. Having the double door top allows us to put wide canape trays, etc. in the fridge with no problem - same with frozen tray items down below. Filter very easy to access.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Love MOST of the Fridge!

Love the fridge in almost all of the aspects available to it and myself! I have had this fridge for about 2 years now! Most everything has been wonderful about the fridge. The only downfall about it is the ice maker seems to work when it wants to rather than all of the time. The other downfall is the fact that for some reason that no one can figure out the freezer does not defrost correctly, every few days I notice water on my floor and then realize the bottom of the freezer is full of ice and I have to get the ice out of the bottom of the freezer. Works great after removal until the ice returns!

Love the features!

We purchased our Whirlpool Gold refrigerator last spring prior to a complete kitchen renovation. Friends have the same unit so we knew we were purchasing a quality product. We wanted a French door refrigerator with freezer on the bottom, but didn't want precious inside storage space lost to water and ice in the door. This model is PERFECT! Cold water dispenses easily by pushing a button on the left inside wall, and the ice dispenser is located on the top shelf of the freezer. Both work extremely well. The refrigerator and freezer are both spacious with adjustable shelves in the fridge area. This model also has a shallow drawer at the bottom of the refrigerator for cold cuts, cheeses or platters. The stainless steel outside is stylish and easy to clean. Handles are very sturdy. The seal is tight. Our only 'complaint' if you will is that both doors must be open in order to access the vegetable drawer on the right as the seal on the left door slightly overlaps the left edge of the drawer. We love our Whirlpool Gold refrigerator and recommend it without reservation.

Good refrigator overall, but too loud

I really like this refrigerator, especially the water dispenser on the side of the left wall. The only not so good things are that it make too much noise and the right side door pops and stays open when you close the left side door. I am always double checking and most of the time the right side door is not closed and sealed.

Good Features

I first bought this fridge and had no problems for about 9 months. Then the compressor started acting flaky. After they changed the compressor, it worked fine for another month or so, and then stopped working again. After they replaced the entire fridge, everything has been working fine now for the past 6 months. I lost a bunch of food though...twice. I also had to deal with the service company many times and had to wait several days to over 1 week for an emergency service appointment. Compared to other fridges with a similar setup, the water dispenser and ice maker are fairly loud, but I've gotten used to it. The double doors are nice and this fridge is very large. I do like the interior water dispenser feature - this was hard to find on many fridges. The white finish is really nice, it's smooth painted metal like a car - it doesn't really need to be cleaned often (unlike stainless finish).
