Whirlpool Gold® 26 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice® System
Everyone's around the table, the food is hot, and the drinks are cold. Filling the glasses with fresh ice is easy because you can slide the ice bin out of the door of this 26 cu. ft. side-by-side refrigerator with one hand. The In-Door-Ice® Plus system moves the ice maker and bin to the freezer door giving you 30 percent more space than our other freezers. Plus the built-in sensors of the 6th Sense™ technology temperature management system automatically adjust cooling to return existing food to the desired temperature in half in the time1, while the Adaptive Defrost system defrosts the freezer only when necessary, which saves energy. No matter what happens, you'll be ready.
