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.

Great looking fridge

Submitted by Sway - 9/11/2017

Haven't had a side by side in years, going to have to get used to the smaller shelves. But so far I like it alot. Fits much better in the space than my old one, and much better looking!

Great Refrigerator

Submitted by Appliance - 9/4/2017

Love this refrigerator but wish the stainless steel was all away around the outside & is not smudge proof which I thought it was. Even though it's only 20 cu. ft. it has lots of room.

Good except for water dispenser.

Submitted by Colleen - 8/23/2017

Nice frig. But the water dispenser only dispenses room temp water. In my opinion it should be cold water. I read the manual to see if there is a way to adjust it and found nothing.

Wonderful Fridge

Submitted by Cessna - 6/21/2017

There are many fridges to choose from. I chose this one because it's a Whirlpool which has been extremely dependable to me over the years. This fridge works perfectly for our lifestyle. It keeps all that is in the crisper..."crisp". The temp stays solid on, and the freezer is very nice. The ice maker is fabulous and all the computer amenities on the front door make this a breeze to measure and fill. Just a great fridge in my book!

Ample space for a counter depth

Submitted by Big Cheese - 7/22/2016

We've only had this refrigerator for about a week. I thought it was going to be a lot smaller in size compared to our old Kenmore side by side. My wife and I have been pleasantly surprised with how spacious the unit is. I guess somebody really made the most of all the interior shelving and layout. The interior lighting is another great feature. My wife and I are really pleased at this point with our decision to purchase this unit.

Cool refrigerator

Submitted by Musiclady - 5/3/2016

This is an attractive and quiet refrigerator. The shelves in the doors provide lots of extra space for beverages, condiments,etc.. The digital display is easy to read and the ice and water dispensers work efficiently. The bins in the refrigerator side are not deep enough from front to back, therefore, the drawer does not open up far enough to place larger items, like a head of lettuce, into the drawer.

Nice refrigerator.

Submitted by Oregon Mike - 4/18/2016

This counter depth fridge holds plenty of food for my wife and I. It is nice to have a fridge that doesn't take up a large amount of floor space and it's easy to maneuver around. It does make some noise, but it's much better than a Frigidaire that we tried.

Nice size and excellent product

Submitted by DMurph333 - 4/6/2016

I bought this for my kitchen remodel--I have an older 1937 Art Deco house, so I needed a certain size refrigerator. I LOVE that this came with a wine rack (saves space). My only comment was that I wish it came without the water feature in the door; I don't use them, so I would have liked the interior freezer space available. Other than that, this is an excellent looking and performing refrigerator.

Not Happy At All

Submitted by ptc109 - 1/6/2016

I work for a property management Co.I decided we were in need of upgrading the kitchens. So I replaced my fridge to test it.Bought in July of 2015 and received it in Sept 2015.Very small ice bin and it takes 5 days to fill and one day to empty.By Nov the panoramic leds make the interior a goldish brown color. When you open the fridge door it creeks which I found out today its really not the door. If you press on the side of the fridge it creeks. So the end result whirlpool was here today the led lighting he said no idea why.So now im faced with a refrigerator that looks like someone smoked a carton of cigarettes in.On to creaking noise He has never heard this before and said he cant fix. Ice maker he said he would order a new door control panel and also a new icemaker. One last problem the water freezes up randomly the fix is put a pan of hotwater on left top of fridge now that is convenience. But 15 minutes later you have water. Keep in mind that I didn't tell the repairman that I managed the building and that it was my fridge because I also live here.Also I didn't tell him I have my refrigeration license. So basically im stuck with an extremely poorly made fridge. Not all is bad the elite series dishwasher is fantastic the range is great and very large and the microwave also is nice.

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator

Submitted by Barb - 11/2/2015

We love the appearance of the appliance but we are not impressed with the quality of the plastic for the drawers. They seem light weight and flimsy. We also needed more shelves for the freezer and the refrigerator and another bin for the refrigerator door. We were stacking our food with out the extra shelves

We needed a special size. This product fitted that. We ordered it without seeing it. I don't like the outside finish, it smudges easy. It also is very noisy. The draws do not come out far enough.

Love it!

Submitted by Jessica - 10/25/2015

I ordered this fridge to replace a GE that had problems often during the past 10 years. Went with counter depth for first time, just a little worried that it wouldn't be large enough to accommodate groceries for family of 4. I've been really happy with it - the 3 bins and other organizers, plus great lighting, helps me see everything that's in the fridge. I think we had more junk in the old one - so this one is plenty big and I think will help us use our food more effectively.

Nice looking counter depth

Submitted by JQ - 10/12/2015

The silver handles add a lot to this frig - looks very nice. Haven't had for long so not sure of how it will perform. So far, so good. Only complaint is that the ice maker is incredibly LOUD. Filling up with water is loud, and dumping of the ice is loud. In my open kitchen/living floor plan, this is a negative. I would still recommend the product, as long as you don't mind the noisy ice maker.
