Easy-to-clean glass freezer shelves feature a wall-to-wall design to give you more shelf space for easier organizing. Best of all, unlike wire shelves, nothing will slip through the cracks.
Enjoy an ice cold...
Refrigerator ice maker failed in 2 weeks, since I bought the protection plan Sears replaced it with a new refrigerator when I insisted on it rather than send me a new door as that is the only way to repair the icemaker due to the way it is wired. The second refrigerator came from the store as they had it in stock, and that one made a high pitched noise that was annoying, Sears replaced that one as well. Third time is a charm, the refrigerator looks great, is mostly quiet, works well, and has nice features. I like it. Fingerprint resistant stainless is real stainless steel with a magnetized vinyl coating. In door icemaker failure requires a whole new door to replace and it's about a $750 part. Get the protection plan and no worries. Customer service is confusing because you talk to Delivery in first three days to report any cosmetic issues, my delivery people hooked up the water line without issue, but they stripped out the **** in the door handle. Your first year warranty is handled by Whirlpool, and they are difficult to communicate with. Go to your salesperson first for help to handle any issues. You have 30 days by law from date of purchase to return the unit for any reason. After that date, the refrigerator is yours permanently. Fridges are now complicated and expensive to repair, so I highly recommend the extended warranty, as they also are not built to last 20 years like your last one. It doesn't matter how much you spend either, none of them will last more than 5 t0 7 years, 10 if you are lucky. Whirlpool makes this refrigerator and they are rated highly by Consumer Reports, and every refrigerator repairman you ask, so you can't go wrong there as far as function and reliability. The refrigerator is attractive and so far I am happy with it, even the small ice cubes that occasionally spit out don't bother me, this is typical of in door ice makers, and the filtered water is a plus for me. The in door icemaker really does give you more storage in the freezer portion, the glass shelves are nice the top shelf retracts to allow for tall items on the shelf below, pizza storage is a nice feature, and the bins slide out just fine, the door bins are really well thought out as well. There is a deli drawer, and a humidity control on the crisper bin. It has all you need in a refrigerator with the convenience of a side by side that you don't have to bend over to dig through the freezer to find your food. Stick with it, don't accept abnormalities and you will end up with a refrigerator that works. I don't know if the reason I had to keep trying was because this model is so new... when the technician they sent out for the icemaker on the first one didn't have it in his system yet it was that new, he had to call and have a Whirlpool technician walk him through the diagnosis. So surely they will work the bugs out as more roll off the assembly line. That's my experience with this model and I will try and update it after a few months.
This model is actually manufactured by Whirpool for Kenmore. Good points, it's a very nice looking fridge, easy to open handles, doors open and shut smoothly (no heavy bang), magnetic sides and doors (I read true stainless steel is not magnetic), fingerprint resistent feature is great, simple water, ice and temperature functions, no after spill, temperature has been cooling wonderfully, great storage and space on both freezer and fridge side, love the indoor ice space saver, this fridge is seriously great in all aspect except the noise. I would say the bins on the fridge side also don't silde smoothly but that I can live with. I read other comments mentioning the noise but I took the chance with the purchase and was hoping that I could live with it, but the first week the noise ran 95% of the time. There are moments the fridge is silent but it's only occasional. I ended up ordering a different fridge brand and while waiting a couple weeks for the backorder I noticed the noise on this Kenmore probably lessen to 75-80% of the time. It's still unfortunately too much. It's such a shame. If anyone decides to keep the purchase, I notice installers misalign the handles/doors. Be persistent with having them align it because I was and the installers were able to align them eventually just fine.
DO NOT PURCHASE THIS STYLE OF FRIDGE! I'm on my 4th tech call. According to each tech, the design for the freezer is the worst (and I thought I was getting more space since the ice container is on the door). The cold air that blows out, blows directly to the water line that fills up the ice tray. This freezes weekly! Absolute horrific design. Thankfully, I purchased the extended warranty so I'm hoping to have it exchanged with another fridge that has the ice on the side of the freezer,not the door. Total headache!
We bought this fridge on Thanksgiving a year or 2 ago. We immediately had problems with the ice maker not functioning and the fridge not cooling. Finally after 2 visits from a tech it started working, sort of. We were told that the high efficiency fridges of today dont cool very quickly. This fridge has been terrible ever since. Sometimes it makes ice and cools other days it doesn't. So I decided to see if I could fix it. I checked all the usual parts and noticed the fan near the condenser wasn't turning and it was super hot... I spun the fan by hand and it decided to run on it's own. This fridge is now working as designed. It cools great and makes ice 10 times a day. However the fan still sticks. So I ordered new parts 3 weeks ago and now they are on backorder!!
I had a Kenmore side by side for 14 years and it worked great. It suddenly went out and I went to Sears to buy another. Was really excited to get this on special. It was back ordered so I had to wait an extra couple of weeks for it to be delivered. When it was hooked up the installers told me to NOT open the doors for 24hrs. About 15 mins after the installers left it started making this really loud noise and it didn’t stop. I took video of it and went to Sears the next day and played the video for them. They assured me it was normal noise and that it was the “temperature adjustment period”. Long story short I returned it cause it ran nearly 24/7 and the noise was NOT normal. I played the video in other stores to get an opinion and they all told me it was broken. DON’T BUY!!!
Its loud, ice is always shaved regardless of setting, water comes out sideways from dispenser, one door will not stay in position when you open it. Inside parts won't hold door so it swings if you let go. Its been adjusted as much as possible
