22 cu. ft. Large Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Greater Capacity and Adaptive Defrost is rated 4.275 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good product so far I have had the ref. now for several weeks and so far everything works as expected. I had one issue, however. The bin material (plastic) appears to be flimsy. While the vegetable bin slightly protruded out and the ref. door closed on it, the bin cracked and needed to be replaced. The door shelves are wide and may crush or crack the bins when the door comes in contact with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This unit is waaaaaaaaaaaaay sick (in a great way!) I spent the better part of a whole day researching online details of refrigerators (features/pricing) to replace my 1995 KitchenAid refrigerator that I purchased new. My wife and I were totally in agreement with buying this 22 cu. ft. Whirlpool® Side-by-Side Refrigerator, with LED Lighting Awesome LED lighting, looooooow energy consumption, well configured storage compartments, shelves, drawers, high quality exterior design, that all added up to ultimate coooolness! Great for a location where there is limited space for a 22 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator. Sure, you can get more storage area with a larger cu. ft. Frig, but that's if you have the space for it. We didn't. We live in a small rambler/ranch home with limited floor space and overhead cabinet clearance. WeBhappy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Refrigerator This refrigerator is exactly what I wanted, and performs very well. It fit the space requirement in my kitchen, and did not have an ice maker (not an option I wanted). The finish is beautiful, and easy to clean and maintain. The appliance is very quiet, no loud motor noise. Interior is well planned, with adjustable glass shelves and bright lighting. It is easy to see all items on shelves and in drawers. Convenient storage in door also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a quality frig! I had just bought a DIFFERENT whirlpool frig last year. From the start we had problems with the shelves not fitting on the ledges in the frig, freezing veggies in the frig and melting ice-cream in the freezer, the black plastic trim on the bottom never fit well and would fall off all the time if you stepped on it or bumped it. That frig was a top freezer model. We had local repair men come out to the house who said the temperature readings were within normal. (go figure…really?) but the large meat drawer was replaced twice and the shelves always slid around on seemingly too small ledges which were not strong enough to hold up such dependent shelves. Anyway, I was shocked and elated when the local store called on our behalf to whirlpool. Whirlpool said they would replace the frig. Since I wanted to stay away from all those bad features (full length meat drawer, weird sliding shelf that supposedly makes room for tall items but only really slides at the wrong times, poorly designed shelves, bad temp control) I decided to go with a completely different style. I took a huge risk because there was only one review of this item ANYWHERE. I could not read any other feedback despite my attempts at looking on tons of websites. I was relieved and happy when the frig arrived. Much more solid frame, plastic foot shelf that extends across the bottom of the refrigerator was strong, shelves that are strong and don't slide around, well controlled temperatures everywhere, and very spacious. I am so happy with Whirlpool that they gave me another frig. Very impressive customer service! I gave the FEATURES a 4/5 because the shelves in the freezer cannot be moved and there is only one humidity gage for the veggie and fruit drawer. I had to dock it somewhere otherwise you may think that it is perfect! (which it seems like now but Im sure it will have its ups and downs). (PS. I did not want an ice dispenser on the door because I read on other reviews of other products that sometimes the ice just shoots out. I thought I would avoid the whole issue and just bought the accessory ice maker to be installed later. I also did not want to get drinking water from the frig because we have already paid for an expensive reverse osmosis system connected to our kitchen sink.) Basically, this frig is much more sturdy and well made. Clear plastic drawers may be a bit flimsy but time will tell. Believe me, this is light years away from the frig we had before. And the stainless steel is beautiful, so is the LED lighting inside!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sleek, efficient and quiet This unit is sleek in appearance and is running efficiently and quietly. The fully- exposed side panel, while not stainless steel, is a textured gray surface which is quite acceptable in appearance. The interior design is nice with 3 bins and adjustable shelves, although one more shelf in the refrigerator would be better. There are wire shelves in freezer. I think glass would be better. The larger door shelves, which can take a gallon jug, are not desirable because most bottles and jars shift around noisily when door is opened or closed. Controls are at front and easy to access. It is slightly inconvenient to access the items at the rear of the shelves. The depth of refrigerator could be reduced and then the projection of the unit into the work space beyond cabinet depth could also be reduced. If this unit had been available in Bisque, I would have preferred that. Overall, we are pleased with this new refrigerator.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for our needs We needed a refrigerator that would fit in the built-in space. We also didn't want the in door water/ice dispenser as this is the first thing to break (just read other reviews). We did however purchase the optional ice maker. I'm happy with the functionality of the appliance. It seems like they could design the spill proof shelves so as not to take up valuable space 2" all the way around the shelf. Three shelves, in my opinion, is not enough. Four would be better as I am stacking containers on top of each other. Fingerprints are not impossible to remove from the stainless steel, but it is a daily chore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A marvelous choice! My wife and I have been extremely pleased with the multitude of features designed into this Refrigerator/Freezer appliance. It has just the right balance in space allocated between the refrigerated section (with its convenient door access) and the bottom freezer section (which maintains subzero temperatures very accurately once chosen). And the water & ice dispenser in the door has proven to be a great convenience throughout the day and evening, and has become our entire family's preference over the kitchen sink faucet, especially whenever we return from our frequent bike rides and walking sprints.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Storage Tall, or storage wide? After thirty years, our "icebox" finally needs a replacement! We came across this unit in a showroom, and reluctantly give it a try. For the pass few months, this unit is still functioning. But regularly hear a knocking noise after the door was opened and closed, it seems some mechanism is starting up when change of temperature is detected! In storage wise, we have to train ourselves to arrange items. Some long packages may have to give another thought. Such as bending it or some other ways! The box is deeper than before. If you are not of regular height, some items may hide from your view when stock is getting full, and you may have trouble retrieving them! In short, the unit is good, as of today!
