Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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. 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.

Refrigerator meets our needs.

Barb444 6/9/2019

Refrigerator was ordered in February and delivered in April. Our kitchen size limits us to a counter depth refrigerator . Side-by-side doors also conform very well . Size and capacity fulfil our daily needs on a weekly basis. We also replaced a 2nd refrigerator in our garage with a more efficient one with more storage for beverages & weekend entertaining plus additional freezer space. Great feature is the user friendly water/ice door dispenser and controls. On day of delivery, Missing freezer shelves not discovered or reported 'til a later date as we went out of town... too late to determine if delivery or source deficiency. Also, expected to find a complimentary air filter since housing was installed. Pursued "old school" solution...returned to store, was referred to Geek Squad who referred me to Manufacturer. Whirlpool User Guide received with delivery, detailed Accessories part numbers and Customer Service contact info. Customer Service ordered missing shelving to be shipped, (not yet received). I appreciated her info, including new part #, for water filter savings program. BTW, recommended Affresh cleaning products are available on-line, at Home Depot or Walmart.

Nice design and nice space features.

Barbia 1/22/2019

I received the refrig damaged on the inside. I took pictures of the damages and emailed them to Lowes. My sale person said they would be repaired but to wait for the rest of my other 3 Whirlpool appliances so I can check them over and if there were any issues then the repairs or issues could be taken care of with one visit Made sense to me. I received the Whirlpool micro wave and I really enjoy it. How ever when the stove and dish washer arrived they were damaged and I didn't accept them. I have been with out a stove since before Christmas and with out a dish washer for weeks but all the appliances were fully paid for . I ordered these 4 Whirlpool appliances on Nov. 11 2018. Now I have a great micro wave, a damaged refrig, no stove and no dish washer. Let's hope the ones they have reordered don't arrive damaged also. I really need a stove! My reviews will be forwarded to the CEO of both Lowes and Whirlpool. My answers to the questions asked apply only if the appliances arrive with out damage!

Best Lighting Inside & Out!

AuntKathi 8/27/2018

Love this side by side refrigerator/freezer where I can easily see everything! The door controls are a big plus, and the outside light is such a beautiful bonus. Only down side, is the need for more freezer shelves. Even one more would have been great. I didn't know this when I bought it as my dealer had none in stock, and I bought my whole suite from an ad!

I am so happy with my new Whirlpool Sunset Bronze Side-by Side Refrigerator. I had to order the smallest one due to the size of my kitchen but I am so impressed with how roomy it is! Great feature on the door for measured water when following a recipe! Highly recommend!

Lowe’s shopper 7/30/2018

Just wish it had more shelves for both fridge and freezer and smaller ice bucket then there would be more shelves in the freezer. I understand I can buy extra shelves so will look into it.
