Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found the perfect refrigerator I purchased my new home in November of last year. It,s a brand new home so I had the opportunity to pick and choose most of the items in each room from flooring, counters, hardware and appliances. No doubt finding the perfect refrigerator was a big deal. The Whirlpool Gold has everything! Where can I start, internal and external lighting is awesome. The stainless look and design deliver the modern look that I was looking for. The counter depth design fits perfectly in the space that was built for it. The water dispenser and ice maker make life convenient for everyone who visits my home. It offers plenty of space in the freezer and standard cooling area. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great look, poor quality I loved the look of this refrigerator when I first saw it and the fit was perfect for my cabinets. The first one I received froze everything in the fresh food section. Even when turned up to the maximum temp, a thermometer I placed on a fresh food shelf registered 27 degrees. Also the finish on the door was bad--scratches everywhere. A new one was delivered and liquids stored on the top shelf still freeze occasionally. The finish on the fresh food door is inconsistent--shiny on one corner, matte on most of the rest of the door. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed This is the worst appliance that I've ever purchased. Top shelf is only 2/3 usable because all items close to the freezer side FREEZE. Nothing seems to fix this. Ice maker has broken once and seems to be ready to break again. This unit only has one humidity controlled bin; bottom bin can only be used to keep meat FROSTY. Have owned for close to 2 years; very dissatisfied with product and with problem resolution (or lack thereof). Finish scratches easily; have only ever used Bounty paper towels and liquid cleaner in household with 2 adults, no children. Looks terrible. DO NOT BUY!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great, but....... When my wife and I saw this refrigerator we loved it, it looked great and was cabinet depth. We also really like that the water and ice dispensers were separate instead of having to switch back and forth like most. Unfortunately from the day we got it the ice dispenser did not work properly. It would dump to much water in the ice dispenser causing water to run down the inside of the freezer door and out the ice dispenser onto my floor. The repairman said the power to the ice maker was being shut off for some reason. He said it could be any number or reasons and would be a major repair. I will be returning the refrigerator and hopefully the next one works. For the price paid I feel the quality is poor. The drawers also feel very cheap and flimsy. Great design, poor quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I love my new Whirlpool refrigerator. It packs a lot of punch for a counter depth unit. The only con is that the ice maker is rather loud to use, but other than that all is good!
Date published: 2011-10-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cosmetically attractive, functionally deficient Good looking refrigerator, counter-depth is great, no extra foot sticking out into corridor kitchen, ice maker in the front makes for ease of cleaning, emptying, and rolls out for cleaning behind. Cannot set the temperature so that it does not freeze everything on the top shelf and nothing on the lower shelves will keep. The water filter is prohibitively expensive and must be replaced every 200 gallon, or you get no more water! Crisper and deli drawers are fairly delicate plastic.
Date published: 2013-11-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to operate, a bit too techie at the door controls. Door controls are a bit too sophisticated for the occassional user for the filter reset and tempertaure change operations. LED interior lights need to come on immediately instead of gradually glowing. Opening a dark refrigerator is not inviting. More shelf versatility.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from FRIG side is FREEZING everything! I am loyal to Whirlpool - every appliance we have ever bought has been Whirlpool. This is the first frig I've ever had issues with. I had the same model but non-counter depth that was brand new but replaced when we remodeled our kitchen. This frig has been freezing everything I put in it. The repairman dropped the temp to 42 degrees and told me to drop over the next few days. At 42 degrees for two days it was still freezing items on the shelves. I am very disappointed with this frig and wonder if it's common with this model or if I just got a lemon. Oh how I wish I'd win that new frog.
