26 cu. ft. Whirlpool® Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Tap Touch Controls is rated 4.2551 out of 5 by 98.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Ice/Water dispenser We bought all Whirlpool appliances when we remodeled our kitchen. Unfortunately, you cannot test products at the store. The refrigerator looked nice and matched everything else we bought. But if I could return it I would. The ice/water dispenser is terrible. The ice goes everywhere and is very, very loud when it makes ice. I would think whirlpool engineers would be better at designing their products. The Kenmore refrigerator we replaced was quieter and had a much better ice/water dispenser. I suggest you examine the Ice/water dispenser before purchasing this model. In our household it is the most used item. I will not make this mistake again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the newness and also the color. The only problem we have had with the refrigerator is that there is no place in the info to tell you with what you can clean the refrigerator. I mean, such as smudges from food or other kinds of materials that might leave something on the refrigerator surface Only says don't use abrasives. Didn't say about the type of cloth to use; but found out too late that you're not to use even paper towels. May be with the next instruction book , there should be the type of cleanser that can be used. Also said not to use window cleaners with contents, such as ammonia. Maybe the outside surface of the refrigerator needs to be more resilient as far as being cleaned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from For a simple designed Frige is what all you get. Read reviews first before buying, Keep looking..... Had the Repairman out twice already. So far had replaced every part of the Ice Machine because for some reason it does not want to make ice. It has not yet filled the bin to the top yet once. Will only fill it up to half way up and that's it and when it does, the ice cubes are small and only 7 cubes come out. Ice machine not made for a family using plenty of ice, would look at a Fridge with those bin in the freezer even thou it takes up some space. Control pad is another thing to get frustrated at. You touch and nothing happens, You almost have to keep playing with it in order to change the function you want it to do. Shelving and storage is adequate. Wished I read the reviews first before buying...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An average product. I am happy to write a review although you might not like the contents. In a nut shell, it is dim inside and not being able to change the bulbs to add light is not good. It is noisy, shutting the door you hear every sound of every bottle in the door. The ice dispenser in the door is very noisy. I'm sure it will be an adequate refrigerator, but I'm sorry to say not my first or second choice next time. Thank you for listening, if you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great refrigerator! My husband and I decided to replace our kitchen appliances recently. After reading many online reviews, we decided on this model. My last refrigerator had filtered water; however, it doesn't compare to the water quality from this refrigerator. I drink a lot more water now than ever before. The LED lights are awesome! You can see everything in the refrigerator and freezer easily. I really like how you can change how you arrange the drawers and shelves. The refrigerator seems to run a little louder than my last refrigerator; however, it runs MUCH less often. The only other thing I sometimes have trouble changing from water to ice or crushed ice. I think I just haven't found the magic spot on the display.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wouldn't buy anything else!!! Purchased our new Whirlpool refrigerator, and couldn't be any happier! I read a lot of reviews on the one I purchased. and I would have to say, the people that complained about the ice-maker not keeping up is not true. I have a family of three, one being a teenager, and we have never run out of ice or even close, We have purchased a lot of appliances over the years, and I have always had the best luck with Whirpool. We actually just replaced our Gas Range & OTR Microwave last Wednesday, and went straight for the whirlpool line, and very happy with them so far as well. I would highly recommend their appliances to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed We have had the frig for 8 weeks and it still does not work right. The doors didn't fit right, water line to the ice maker had a hole in it, now the door sensors are not working right and the ice maker is intermittent. Works for a week and then it doesn't for a while and then it does again. Wouldn't expect this type of quality for what I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase, love the storage I knew I wanted a side by side fridge since I am on the taller side, so leaning down to get things out of the freezer with a french door, or bending down to actually look in my fridge with a top-freezer were not going to be an option. I've never had an in-door ice/water dispenser, so that was new for us, but it is quiet and I'm never bothered by the ice maker. Also the touch screen aspect of it is really nice and will be easy to clean! I enjoy the storage and options to move things around inside the refrigerator. It is overall extremely quiet and easy to clean. The only slight downside is the butter/enclosed container that seems to rub a little when we open it - nothing major though! Highly recommended all around!
