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 out of 5 by from so far, so good We have had the refrigerator for a little over a month and we are quite happy with it. I can finally see what's in the fridge! So much got hidden in our old GE. It seems to fit everything. the downsides are: the ice machine is not so efficient. Perhaps because it is on the door and not as cold as the interior, the ice cubes join with each other. This may be because were are not using so much ice in the winter. Also, we kept the old GE in the garage, so large and heave items are put in it. The doors are quite beautiful (stainless) and the handle matches my new Frigidaire perfectly. I do not find it hard to clean at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it I really like the in door storage for milk and sodas. I also like the adjustable shelves. My son likes to put half full glasses of juice in the fridge so we really like the spill-proof shelves. It's great only having to clean one shelf instead of the entire fridge. When i bought the fridge i was really set on the in door ice maker. in hindsight maybe the one in the top of the freezer is better. The in door one seems slow and the capacity is not that great. on the other hand we do have 5 people using it so i may be asking too much of it anyway. Overall i am happy with this fridge and would recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great performance, delicate surface I've had this refrigerator for almost a month now. I don't think it is noisy at all. The ice capacity may be a little small for larger families, but it works fine for me. And there is an option to force it into faster ice making, which is nice. I love all the shelving that is in this unit. It's much better than the builder choice model that came with my house 14 years ago. The only downside I see with this model is the finish on the front of the unit. I have the high polish black finish and it easily scratches. In fact, it arrived scratched from the store. I am waiting to see if the polish they offer will buff some of that out or not. You also have to be very careful to use microfiber towels on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fridge After reading all the reviews we decided on this fridge. I knew that it would probably be a louder fridge and it is. Its not terrible loud when its running and I don't know if I would notice if I hadn't read the reviews about it being a little more loud. The water dispenser is very loud but for no longer than it gets used to fill a glass no problem. The water dispenser is a little harder to push but when you release the lever water stops unlike my old fridge where you had to wait 2-3 seconds. Love the in door ice, makes for more room in the freezer and easier to pour out large quanities of ice. I have room to stand up my pizza boxes in the freezer. The refridgerator cools drinks very quick. Overall I am pleased.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features, poor execution Replaced a GE Profile, wanted an ice maker in the door which this one has. Had it one week and the refrigerator handle broke off, BROKE OFF! A month later, putting a frozen turkey on one of the shelves in the freezer, the shelf BROKE! Replaced for $50, $20 cheaper than Whirlpool had. Ice maker is loud enough to wake the dead and is slow to make ice. Refrigerator makes odd noises all hours of the day and night. This unit has great features, but they had the 3rd string on the assembly line when this one was made. My first and last Whirlpool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Over all I am happy with my new refrigerator. Just a few issues. I like my new refrigerator but it does have a couple of downfalls. One, I love the outside water dispenser but to fill a large water bottle or coffee carafe takes more time than I expected. I have started using my old counter water filter pitcher for faster pouring. Second issue is that even tho it looks like you have plenty of room in the freezer, the way they designed the shelving and bottom drawer actually limits its usage. Wish the shelves could be adjustable. In the refrigerator section they could have added a extra shelf also. I suppose I could buy an extra one but for the price they could have included an extra one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent and attractive appliance I am highly satisfied with my Whirlpool Gold side by side fridge. It is very quiet and keeps everything nice and cold. I got the black one and it looks very elegant in my kitchen with my other black appliances. The door shelves are deep and hold a lot of food items. I like the see through bins and the glass shelves, very attractive and elegant looking. I really enjoy the through-the-door ice and water dispenser. This is the first refrigerator I have had with this technology. It is really nice in the summer. I wish the water filters were not so costly to replace. Pretty pricey in my view. However, the appliance is terrific and I have enjoyed it. I highly recommend this fridge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average Fridge This fridge came with my new home seven months ago. If I had a choice I would not choose this fridge. Yes, this is a stylish looking appliance that would be good for a family with one or two people, but this fridge is not good for a family with older kids where you need more room for cold items. The icemaker also is lacking. I had a family gathering and ran out of ice before we got started good. I could not be fully replenished until the next day. The icemaker is also very loud.
