21 cu. ft. Top-freezer refrigerator with CEE Tier 3 1 rating 4 5 72 72
I wouldn't buy this again The middle drawer falls out EVERYTIME we open the drawer!!! It's made cheaply and it is LOUD! September 21, 2012
It's my first smooth front refrigerator/freezer and I LOVE that about this appliance! Apparently, this is one of the most energy efficient refrigerator/freezers on the market right now; but I wouldn't know that yet because we haven't had it that long. I sure hope so; because it is one of the noisiest ones we have ever had, and we are told that is in part due to the energy efficiency! Also the veggie, fruit, and meat drawers do not slide easy, and can be frustrating! The last thing is because of it's size; I would personally prefer the freezer on the bottom. September 21, 2012
Stuff keeps falling off STILL trying to get the darn "deli drawer" to NOT fall off when it's opened... June 27, 2012
My old Whirlpool "Gold" model was better While I am certainly happy to hear that this refrigerator is very energy efficient, I am bothered by a few design aspects, which, compared to my 1998 Gold refrigerator, are inferior: The first is, there is no light in the freezer section.. a great disappointment. Secondly, the two freezer door shelves are much too narrow compared to the old one; another disappointment. The "Gold" model had roll-out shelves in both compartments; this has none. The plastic bins are much too flimsy on the doors, and the large pull out drawer feels like it is going to completely fall out. Overall, I'd say this is not an upgraded product. August 15, 2011
Absolute piece of junk. Worst piece of junk I have ever owned. Only one temperature controller for both freezer and fridge. I sent Whirlpool a picture I took of the light from a flashlight shining through the gap in the freezer door seal. All told, 4 inches of seal you can see daylight through.All the cold air goes straight to the vegetable crisper, sucking warm air in through the gaps, keeping the freezer section toasty warm. The freezer won't freeze ice cream, but the veggie drawer will freeze your lettuce brick solid. If you turn the temp up enough to keep things in the bottom from freezing, the freezer won't even freeze ice. Lost a lot of food and expensive medicine figuring that out. Dealer was rude and wouldn't send a technician. Scheduled another technician through Whirlpool web site. He showed up 3 days late and worked a half a day on it, placing several calls to Whirlpool. Nothing he did made any difference. He left me with a roll of aluminum tape, telling me that if it didn't improve in 24 hours to tape over the return air ducts in the middle section. Just for giggles, I tried that. It made the problem even worse, as expected. I would give it back to the dealer, but he wants me to pay for having it picked up. Bottom line; could not be more disgusted with the product or the service. March 13, 2013
This product has no customer benefits and no worthwhile product features This refrigerator does not have: Freezer light ice cube trays ice cube holder seperate freezer thermostat The main section space is very poorly designed therefore it is difficult to store food conveniently. The refrigerator runs loudly such that we can hear it at the other end of our home which is about 40 feet away. February 15, 2013
Was very disappointed in the interior features of this refrigerator I bought this refrigerator online through whirlpool and am very disappointed in the fit and finish of this refrigerator. The interior shelving and drawers are flimsy at best and loose fitting. There are no options to adjust the various spacing on these shelves The wire shelf in the freeze is very thin and does not bear the weight of a few roasts with out bending in the middle. The design of the meat drawer and the plastic rails that hold it is poor and often falls off so that I have to remove the drawer and shelf to reattach these rails. The installer even had difficulty lining up the doors properly and had to make two trips. I previously had a very similar whirlpool model that lasted for almost 20 years which is why I bought this one. The shelving was solid as was the freezer shelf. While I don't expect 20 years out of this, the interior pieces don't feel like they will last a tenth of that. As for its performance, I find the cooling uneven. It often freezes items like containers of yogurt that are in the back on the bottom shelf. I should have sought out this model in a store to examine it, instead of buying online. If I had, the internal fittings and trim would have swayed me away from buying this one. November 20, 2012
bad design. One control for temperature can't control accurately can't control temp accurately with one control. bad design. not enough room for tall objects. butter keeper too shallow. drink compartment, bad design. meat drawer too long. no light in freezer. freezer door storage too narrow.
