Whirlpool® 30 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with MicroEdge™ shelves is rated 4.2667 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super capacity - all the right features We've had the Whirlpool® 30 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator for about 2 months. We love the capacity of the refrigerator / freezer and the side-by-side design. This unit replaced a relatively new French-door design, which we did not like all: doors often didn't close well and searching for frozen food within the draw was annoying. The 30 cu. ft side-by-side has all the storage capacity we need with the elegant simplicity of the side-by-side design. Water dispenser and ice maker work vey well. The LED lights provide superior lighting throughout the unit compared to conventional light bulbs. Overall, we are very pleased with the refrigerator thus far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Refrigerator Ever! We had put off buying a new refrigerator for over a year. Our old refrigerator, also a Whirlpool, just refused to die, even though it was over 25 years old. We had plenty of time to look at all the models and features. We decided on the Whirlpool 30 cu.ft. side-by-side for several reasons: the roominess, the clearly visible drawers, the bright lighting, storage in the door, the water/ice in the freezer door, and the quality of the Whirlpool brand. (I really like getting crushed ice!) We have not been disappointed!! The ease of accessing things in our fridge is great. It was a great deal, too! We're very satisfied, longtime Whirlpool customers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Refrigerator! Just before President's day our 20 year old refrigerator died. I asked our repairman what brand he would buy if it were his own...he said Whirlpool. No only did we find the size we wanted, which was the largest, it also was on sale. Within the week it arrived and the old one removed. Once I got used to the computer operation it's a snap to operate. The space inside is even larger then our old one, which was the same size. It refrigerates well and the freezer is great and holds much more than the old one and accommodates even larger items. The only thing that would improve this refrigerator is making the ice maker a little quieter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, But Could be Better I have had this refrigerator a week now and happy overall with it: Likes: * Plenty of storage capacity * Handle design feels great in your hand, no seams in the handle like the GE. * LED lighting inside, and gradually brightens after door is opened * Stainless Steel - exterior seems durable Dislikes * Compressor has a buzzy noise quality to it that I don't care for. It's overall quieter than my old frig but it still bothers me somewhat. I am hoping I get use to it over time. * Ice/Bev Dispenser - has a cheap black plastic catch tray for extra water/ice. The Whirlpool 26 cu. ft.. Smart Frig. has a much nicer Stainless Tray. Would like to be able to upgrade my catch tray to SS somehow through an accessory part. Also the Ice/Bev dispenser has a white LED, their Smart Frig has a blue LED which looks cooler. I don't ever expect to use the smart controls of the 26 cu. ft. frig but I really liked the small styling details it offered but in the end the larger 30 cu. ft. capacity won out over design. * Ice/Bev - only has one dispenser port so you have to hit a button if you want ice or water. I would rather pay the extra $50 and have two ports if I could design my own ice maker.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great size, but needs fast fill and 2 pads I've had this for a few months now, which replaced a 30cu ft.Whirlpool that died after 18 months and was out of warrantee. I hope to have better luck with this one, but it is already making lots of groaning noises, like my parents 15yo fridge. The size is fantastic, but that is about it. It needs a separate ice and water pad - it drives everyone crazy and guests always make a mess. Also, it needs to get with the times and have a Fast Fill water dispenser. It takes well over a minute to fill a 1L bottle. It feels like 10 minutes when you are the one standing there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Refrigerator We've had the Whirlpool® 30 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator (White with stainless steel handles) for about 2 months. We love the capacity of the refrigerator / freezer and the side-by-side design. The freezer capacity is the best we could find in any refrigerator, which was important to us as we do not have room for a separate freezer. We do not like the design of the French-door units which require searching for frozen food within the lower drawers. The LED lights provide superior lighting throughout the unit. Overall, we are very pleased with the refrigerator thus far. Unfortunately, I believe this unit has been discontinued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Refrigerator, great lighting, lots of space I have only had this refrigerator for two weeks but I love the space, LED lighting, and the way it is set up. There is lot of space in the doors for storage and the shelves have a lot of space between them. I replaced my GE French Door because I never really liked the layout and space was very limited. When I swapped out the food in my full GE refrigerator to this one it was only half full!! I was concerned about the ice maker not producing enough ice, but that is definitely not the case. I makes 3 times what my GE did, and that's without quick ice being turned on. The water for filling the ice maker is really loud but I have gotten used to it already. My biggest complaint is that the drip tray below the water and ice is very shallow and has to be wiped out often. The deli and vegetable drawer are cheaply made but I looked at far more expensive models in other brands and that seems to be the case no matter what the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fridge We bought this last September and it has proved to be a good purchase. I like the versatility of the shelves, the easy access to the filter, the LED theater lighting is a cool feature. I finally had a need to use the Fast Ice feature and it worked well. The only small complaint I have is that the fan is a little noisy at times. I wanted another Whirlpool because I have been extremely satisfied with my old Whirlpool fridge. The only reason we bought a new one is we upgraded to Stainless appliances. I still have the old one in the garage and it's still going strong after 12 years.
