You could contact a lawyer, but would it be worth it for used appliances? And you may lose.
Since the contact did stay about the kitchen refrigerator will not be included with the sale so he has the right to take that. But as far as the fridge in the laundry room since its not a build in, he also has the right to take it. He should really take the washer and dryer too. Not sure why he left those behind as washer and dryer usually dont come with the house as they are not part of the appliances.
Usually only stove, oven, dishwasher and built in microwave that will come with the house.
Hope this helps

In my opinion they did not contract to leave the extra fridge....normally fridges are covered in non-realty items addendum as are washer/dryers.... If you wanted them you probably needed to ask for them and contract for them. You want to refer back to your contract for what is described as a fixture.
If you used the TREC 20-10 contract, look at paragraph 2B.
I am not an attorney, so this legal question you might want to refer to an attorney, but probably by the time you pay an attorney to fight, it might be cheaper to buy a new fridge.
In my opinion adding the extra language did not contract you out of the default rules or other provisions of the contract, it was just stating a fact or a clarification.

I would check that listing first to see what appliances it indicated were staying with the property. Look all throughout the purchase agreement and see if there are any other indications of things that the seller planned to take at closing, then I think I would call up my realtor to begin with and explain to them what has happened. If the original listing indicates all those other appliances were to stay, you could go back on the listing agent AND the sellers. You can probably also make a complain to the National Association of Realtors. The complaint can be heard by them and compensatory damages may or may not be deemed appropriate to pay. You also should get with your realtor and decide if the things that the sellers took are worth what it might take to fight it. Sometimes it's not really worth it, even though what they did was wrong and could have been a breach of contract. Check with your realtor and go from there.
