Whirlpool Gold® 26 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice® System

Ratings

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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 259 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Fridge I replaced a GE Profile, however this is at least my 4th Whirlpool refrigerator. Overall I am very happy with the refrigerator, however I was disappointed at the layout on the refrigerator side. The shelves are not fully adjustable in that the top shelf is too high and does not allow for milk and juice bottles. To lower the shelf would be a waste of space. Additionally, I found that I have to be careful where to put the door shelves as they will interfere with the interior shelves. The lower door shelves are shallow and does not allow for placement of two cans deep. They must be staggered, a waste of space. I ordered an extra bin for the freezer because there is too much air space and things like frozen vegetables and meats slide around too much on the shelf. I like the ice in the door since it does give additional space in the freezer, however I will say that the ice maker is noisy and the compressor is much louder than my previous refrigerator. December 17, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by An overall good buy We replaced a very old (25yrs) GE Profile unit with this one and I really was expecting something that reflected...well...the fact that this unit is 25 years newer, but I'm a little disappointed. The good things about the refrigerator include the fingerprint-less finish (mono satina), the easy-to-access ice maker and the ample slide out storage bins. The things I'm less impressed with include the noisy compressor (at least twice as loud as my old unit), a fairly small ice maker that doesn't work much faster on "fast ice." And the interior layout. There's just something about the shelving positions that don't quite do it for me. Either, it needs another shelf, or the positions need to be adjusted because you end up with a space only about 4" high if you want two shelves for tall items (e.g., milk, tea pitchers, juice, etc.). But overall, it performs well. It's very well lit and keeps things cold. October 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this appliance It looks great, and is spacious for all my needs. I like the side by side due the space I have which would be tight for a larger door or drawers. I am enjoying this appliance and would recommend it April 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice addition to the kitchen Bought the fridge for the new kitchen and are very pleased. The only thing that seems awkward is the layout of the freezer basket and ice tray. There are essentially three areas for storage and all three have to be pulled out to get to the ice tray (including the main door). When guests are here and ice is being used it is just a lot of activity keeping everyone supplied with ice. March 31, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by cheap quality Had to have ice machine fixed twice. Door shelf is flimsy and broke. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Spacious & Stylish With Great Features! We replaced a 20+ year old top freezer fridge and were looking for a change. In May, we purchased this side-by-side in black, which is very sleek and stylish looking (I think stainless is a fad and a bit high maintainance). I like the taller height of the doors so that you don't see the hinges. I wish the front were textured instead of the smooth finish, as I think it will eventually scratch. The fridge side is very spacious, and the spill proof shelves have already been put to the test. The butter keeper is huge. It holds my two cut crystal butter dishes, and two plastic tubs of butter. The water filter is conveniently located above the top shelf; no crawling on my knees to replace one on the floor level. The lighting is awesome! I love a well lit interior. The adjustable door shelving is very adequate; I love the larger shelf in the door my milk and juices; very handy. The freezer side is also very well lit and has ample space. I was hesitant about the glass shelves in the freezer, as I was used to wire shelves, but I really like the glass shelves. It could really use one more shelf. I like the ice container in the door; it is very easy to remove when needed. The ice maker is a little bit noisy and a tad slow, but I have become accustomed to it now. I love the bright blue lighting on the exterior. The ice maker and water dispenser are great. The grandkids love the crushed ice feature. I love this Whirlpool refrigerator! October 24, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far so good! We spent a long time trying to pick out a refrigerator that would be the best fit for our family of 4. Although all the sales reps tried to talk us into a French Door model, the disorganized bottom freezer would never work in our family. We freeze a lot and needed to be able to see everything easily without hunting around. Some reasons we picked this side by side over others: (1) Stainless look not stainless steel. With a 5 and 7 year old, I knew we'd be wiping the stainless one constantly. That's not how I want to spend my time so we went with the stainless look. (2) Gray sides (not black) - Sounds silly but this was important to us. One side of our refrigerator is visible and we didn't want the contrast of black. (3) Glass shelves and higher quality parts - Just seemed like it would hold up better than comparable models. (4) Light placement. Some of the lights in other refrigerators seemed better at first until I realized that food would block them. Of course, they looked brighter empty! One thing I don't like - the freezer doesn't have enough shelves. It really needs 1-2 more to be better organized. Sound - some people think it's loud but we have not found that to be true. April 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product This is the first time I've ever had a side-by-side & I love it. I bought the 26 cu. ft. fridge so I had lots of room like my old fridge which was 22. cu. ft. I was still afraid it would be too small but I'm able to fit everything onto the shelves & door with have room to spare. The freezer space is very adequate also since the ice maker storage is located on the door. I love having the ice & water handy. My husband is even drinking more water. He says it tastes better than out of the faucet because of the filter the water goes through inside the fridge. Also, the only time it's "noisy" is when the ice falls down into the storage bin, but we've gotten used to it now. As far as the motor, we don't find it noisy at all like some reviews reported. I did lots of research on refrigerators & chose this one because it was highly rated in the reviews. I really feel we made a great choice. April 4, 2013
