Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible construction I purchased this refrigerator 2 weeks ago. The deli draw constantly comes out of the tracks as well as the veggie bin. Less storage capacity then my old GE both in the refrigerator and freezer compartment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lasted 2 years Repair bill is over 900 dollars. Tech said evaporator, compressor and all other associated parts have to be replaced due to coolant leak. Lost over 300 dollars in food. Appliance was installed in a new building in 2012. It was never abused or even moved by me. The Whirlpool Tech had to replace the drip tray because it was cracked a few months after we moved in due to water on the kitchen floor. It was a nightmare every few mornings finding a puddle of water and not knowing where it was coming from. It appears it has had the coolant problem since it was purchased and the warranty drip tray repair was just a symptom of a bigger problem. Low coolant causes condensation problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value, good quality. Good value, good quality. Cosmetics are really nice. Everything inside is easily reachable. No problem at all to clean. Highly recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Poor Quality Compared to Older Whirlpool Units This Whirlpool refrigerator appears to have very poor quality when compared to my 10 year old Whirlpool refrigerator. The drawers are made of flimsy plastic and continuously fall off the shallow tracks when opened. The drawer end stops also work poorly. The wire freezer shelf does not have a center support so it bows badly when meat is placed on the top shelf. The energy efficiency may be good, but the drawbacks listed above make it very frustrating to use on a daily basis. Also there is no light or separate temperature control for the freezer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noisy refrigerator I am not satisfied with this refrigerator. It is noisy! You would think with the advancements in engineering, computer software, Continuous Improvement and a desire to satisfy the customer that Whirlpool would not even consider selling this refrigerator. This is the last Whirlpool product I will buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product overall. Very Quiet, Energy efficient. Clean design Excellent product overall. Very quiet - it's as if is "off" at all times. Energy efficient. Not expensive compared to peers. Simple and elegant design. very convenient. perhaps one thing I do wish is if it were a little bit colder (e.g. I like my soda ice cold) - at the price of sacrificing some of its ridiculous energy efficiency

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I've always had a 2 door ref/freezer and I wanted another one when we moved in our new house. I wish now the freezer was a little bigger. The veg. drawers are very confusing to me (high humidity/low humidity) on which way to slide. Do I have it on high or low?? The shelving on the freezer door - I wish they were wider.
Date published: 2013-11-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product does have great features. The large draw makes it. We have it in a summer house and it has plenty of room for everyone's STUFF! I like the door and well. The can holder is great. The design is pretty and fits in. I really like the two sizes of the bottom bins. That is just a little thing but makes it easier to store different sized produce. Whoever designed it must use a refrigerator a lot.
