After looking at similar refrigerators in various stores, this model had all the features we wanted plus a great sale price. We replaced our stainless steel side-by-side refrigerator. Now everything is so much easier to view and to access. The adjustable and slider shelves let you customize storage to your needs.

We researched fridges a lot before we made our purchase. What sold us on this particular model were the features. We LOVE the drawer that allows you to choose the right temperature for what you're storing. We eat primarily fruits and veggies, and for a family of six, this fridge holds a ton of the food we use the most. The freezer is also amazingly huge. I was able to unplug my deep freeze as this freezer holds all the extra food I was storing in my deep freeze. I love the lighting inside. Everything is easy to see. The water dispenser is wonderful and easy to use and accurately dispenses however much water you'd like. The ice machine makes fabulous ice. Truly this is a wonderful fridge and I LOVE it....except it is loud. I read all the other reviews from owners and most mention the noise and it's true. It's loud. Strangely loud in fact. I expected a little fan noise here and there and noise as the ice machine runs, but the noises that come from this fridge are very loud and not what you'd expect. Regardless, I wouldn't choose another fridge. The benefits greatly outweigh the noise.
It is the noisiest unit we have ever had. It runs almost constantly. When it does cycle off it isn't for very long at a time. The ice cubes freeze into a solid blob. We will be calling for service. This is a poor way to start off with a new appliance. It makes you wonder where it will go from here. We are very unhappy with our purchase.

After spending an exhausting amount of time researching refrigerators, I went to ******, ******** and Sears and spent several hours at each store. Ultimately decided on this fridge primarly b/c of the refrigerator drawer, french door style and 3 solid drawers in the freezer. My spouse was also very big on the lighting and I will admit it's quite wonderful. Functionally this fridge is awesome and everything we hoped for. We spend 80% of our fridge time looking in the fridge and not the freezer. This fridge makes everything so much easier to see compared to our Samsung side by side. So here is the rub, and to some it's pretty important and to others maybe not so much. After it was plugged in I quickly discovered this fridge is loud - Noticeably loud. My Samsung had basically zero noise except when ice was dumping. This fridge has a low hum that is constant. If your living area is near your kitchen or opened to your kitchen, and subtle background noises bother you, then I would move on. What I determined is that that it's not the actual compressor but in fact the fan that blows cold air across the top section of the refrigeration section where the ice is made and then dumped down into the door ice holder. This fan noise is constant b/c the ice machine is in the fridge so to make the ice it has to do this and it also blows down into the area where the ice is at to keep it frozen. Again, this is b/c it's in the fridge area and if it did not do this the ice would of course eventually melt. For me this is incredibly annoying. For my spouse it's no big deal and the functionality counters this negative. I can say the hum does get slightly quieter after a few days and the fridge is running at full efficiency, but for me it's just annoying and had I known this i would have purchased something else.

Got this fridge 2 weeks ago, so far we love it. It's roomy and the 2 split shelves is awesome when you need to put in tall bottles. The middle door is ideal for items, like cheese and cold cuts. The ice and water dispenser works just fine. I have had no problems with it. So far no big deal with fingerprints, but then the grand kids haven't been here yet. Oh, and we can't wait until we buy our pizzas so we can use the pizza caddy in the freezer. I was always a Whirlpool person, but after all they do make the Kenmore. So I'm happy.
