Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Disapointed I am so disapointed with my new refrigerator. I replaced my old whirlpool refrigerator with this new one. My old one was made so much nicer. The shelves on the door could be moved the shelves on this new one can not be moved and the top shelf on the door is worthless. The butter keeper does not fit the round butter container from the store. The shelves inside the refrigerator are a very cheap plastic and the drawer under the shelf is very hard to open and when I try to open it the whole shelf starts to come out. The icemaker in the freezer is very little. I purchase the same size I had before so this refrigerator is very disapointing. I did not see it before I bought it since I had a whirlpool I thought the standards would be as nice. Not the case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid unit for the garage. Unit is fine for our intended use of keeping a second refrigerator and placing it in the garage. The inside design with solid glass shelving is provides a better quality for this price point. It runs a bit noisy but that is not a concern since it is not in the kitchen. Unit has 5 temperature settings and the manual recommended we start with setting 3. We have found that it is better to increase the setting to 4 to keep nicely cold drinks and freeze the ice cream. I guess I would have expected the average setting to do the job but I guess increasing the setting to achieve the desired result will not decrease the durability of the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The design is versitle and it works well. I like the color and design of the refrigerator I have no problem getting a lot of food in it and it keeps it well cooled. It is easy to clean, even the bottom of the refrigerator where it is usually difficult to get all the crud out. It has been reliable and performed excellently. I had a drawer break and there was no problem with getting a replacement from Whirlpool. It is a good size and does not show dirt. It is easy to move and clean behind and underneath. Food lasts longer in this refrigerator than I expected. I love everything about it. You could not get a better, more reliable product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whirlpool is a great brand, almost all my appliances is whirlpool. This product is great, it has lots of storage for everything. It's a good product To start with i love whirlpool brand, like I already said all my appliances are whirlpool except my microwave, and that's only because it was a birthday gift and therefor when it's a gift I don't choose the brand. Whirlpool is a great brand. I have had no problems at all with this product, or any of my other whirlpool appliances. This product has lots of storage, love the extra draw! It's a great product for a good price. I would strongly suggest this product and any other whirlpool products that's out there even if it's one i don't have, that's how great this brand is!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Refridgerator is seamlously quiet! For as long as I can remember fifty-years at least we have always owned Whirlpool appliances. My parents had them and when new designs came out it didn't matter because our old pair of washer/dryer or refrigerator, etc. was still working. When I became an adult I knew that I could safely invest in a Whirlpool product and not have to worry about its quality and longevity. Recently my last child, now twenty-five purchased his first home which needed a refrigerator. We went to ABC Warehouse in Toledo, looked about and I told him, "this one will work", meaning the 18 cu.ft. Whirlpool. He said, "how do you know its any good"? I said, all my appliances that you've been using are Whirlpool and with that, he said, fine. They delivered it to his home and I have to tell you, its there, its working, it looks great, but if your back were turned you'd never know it was there, because it is so quiet! It's awesome and he loves its layout. Another satisfied customer, thank you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My two 50 yr. old fridge & freezer are better products I special ordered a Kitchenaid fridge thinking it a better product. The stainless steel front (not sides is difficult to maintain. The fridge portion is so low to the ground that I must get on my knees to look into it. The glass shelves slide so easily that food falls through. Now the freezer door opens & stays open when the refrigerator door is closed. And I had to special order the icemaker because the fridge didn't come with one. It is too small & ice falls out. I really hate this refrigerator. And Whirlpool doesn't stand by its product after 12 months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a refrigerator. It refriges. Bought this in a "refrigerator emergency" situation because it was simple, inexpensive and lacked all the "features" of other fridges. The nose level is much lower than my old one and I find the glass shelves easy to clean. After two months I have had no problems with it. I had to change the side that the hinges were on. The directions were in "interesting" pictures with no words, but I was able to figure it out by just looking at the pieces. The operation itself went smoothly. My main criticism would be that the crisper drawers are often difficult to pull out, as is the meat drawer. I agree that there has to be some sort of stop to keep them from drifting out by themselves, but these have to be manipulated with two hands if they are to pull out easily.
