Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is the worst product I have ever purchaseed Factory set temperature does not adequately produce Ice. The products in the freezer are NOT frozen solidly. If you raise the Temperature, the water line to the ice maker freezes and you need a heat gun to thaw, once you raise the temperature,the products in the refrigerator compartment freeze, including the produce which then needs to be discarded. The meat storage drawer falls off the tracks EVERY TIME you open it. If a Whirlpool representative reads this review, I would appreciate a replacement refrigerator. I would NEVER purchase another whirlpool product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I was totally impressed with the shipping packaging, loaded with interior supports everywhere. I read Consumer Reports and agreed with their findings. Only fault is like Consumer Reports said that the thermostat was for both the freezer and refrigerator. Some interior products will start to barely freeze at one setting below the normal setting. I would have preferred a variable dial thermostat. They might have designed this for future seal deterioration as it ages. I don't understand that thinking. I am an engineer and think that thermostat should get a redo with a variable retrofit. That is the only aggravation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Has nice features, but The integrated handles and interior water dispenser are what attracted me to this appliance. And the sliding shelf for larger items. But very disappointed. Doesn't have separate controls for compartments which has caused us issues. Things freeze in the bottom, but can't turn down or items in freezer soften too much. Have had 3 repairmen with 2 repair attempts. The last repairman said it's the cooling tower in the back blowing out too cold air and things close freeze. But I've had freezing in the front and bottom. Should make another call, may get to return. Sorry I didn't try to when I first got it. All repairman said they've seen numerous problems with this appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love IT! Looks expensive holds a lot...water quality great! Love the looks, the efficiency, the inside water dispenser, the shelving. Only impefection and certainly ones that I can learn to ccept are that I would prefer the door shelving of the freezer to be movable , deeper, bigger....and the frig has a large drawer that is no t as easy to use as if it were split in to two....rather wide if one has to open/close frequenty. Generally Iwould rccommend this frig to everyone. WHIRLPOOL makes a great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great efficiency and performance. Shelving oirganization is not optimum I really appreciate the top freezer and the efficiency of the regrigerator/freezer. The food stays fresh for a long time. I do not like the light bar directly in the middle of the top shelf. It is too low and runs through to the back of the fridge. This limits the space on the top shelf. We can store only short jars and casseroles under the light bar. I am unable to slide a 9" container from one side to the other because the light bar is in the way. Also, I think the shelving should be split so that we can adjust each half to different heights. We do not like storing the milk on the door. Overall, however, it is a very efficient and well built refrigerator. Sound level is very low.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing interior The full width pantry shelf is flimsy and continually falls off its rails, which themselves are attached to the sides of the fridge by small plastic tabs that bend outwards. I can't put more than a few pieces of cheese on this thing. The plastic rails on the door feel similarly cheap and fragile. It's generally an uninspiring interior; not as nicely made as the model this replaces. The ice maker is also much louder than my old fridge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great on Green This is a great fridge for the money, especially given the energy rating. The design features include a space-saving, low profile meat/cheese drawer. The see-through shelves and drawers help remember where you stashed things, especially with a large family who keeps moving things around, messing with your memory. Speaking of moving around, the unit comes with a fairly flexible potential for locating shelves where you want them. Design would have been even nicer if all the shelves in the door could be interchanged from side to side and from top to bottom. Air fresheners and water filters add quality to something already good. The inside water spigot is amazingly drip-free. Get this refrigerator, and go "green" happily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this product has great features Overall I really like this fridge. The fridge door squeaks loudly and continues to do even after oiling although somewhat softer sound. As delivered the deli drawer kept falling out when opened. II went to the store where I purchased it and noticed the floor model had the drawer placed one position lower. After I moved mine to that position it has not fallen out since. The water valve sounds terrible. When the ice maker fills or you are getting a drink from the dispenser it sounds like a drill or something is being used. The produce drawers work extremely well at keeping veggies fresh looking and tasting. The fridge smells fresh too. The filtered water tastes just like bottled spring water.
