Rated 3 out of 5 by ihe1963 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 5 out of 5 by mtlhd1955 Nice Refridgerator
This unit is nice & fits our needs. Although it does make a lot of popping noises. Shelving is cumbersome to use & does not allow you to place very many tall items inside. The slide shelf that has to be moved back, then reduces the area that can be used for other items. Overall the freezer area is mediocre in size. Deeper door shelving on top makes it hard to see what items are on the lower shelves. We will get used to these issues in time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QueenHeidi I love my new refridgerator but.....
It seems to be quite deep. The first few times I opened the lower door to pull something out, I felt like the top part of my body had to bend down Into the fridge to reach what I needed. Once I grabbed something I stood up too soon and hit my head on the freezer door. I'm 5'8' so I'm not short. I'm used to it now. Other than that, I love it! Thanks for asking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kelmol47 Love it. Better design than my prior 21 ft refer. Sound is very quiet, water is tasty.
Did research on Tier 3 Refers and this is THE ONE. Capacity is larger that my prior 21 CF refer, much better design, so much quieter, and very modern looking . Just love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by riddle Cold fridge, poor design
this refrigerator is very cold, had to move it down to the lowest setting because it was freezing food at the bottom. i have had this fridge since Nov and had to have repair service because the interior water holder froze up and wouldn't dispense water. the other main gripe i have about this fridge is the interior design and the full width pantry drawer. the fridge is designed in such a way that nothing fits, large or gallon pitchers have to be placed at bottom where the slide out drawer is so it will fit. the middle light is inconvenient because tall things won't fit there. the worst design is the pantry drawer that falls off the rails if you dare put too much cheese etc in drawer. it definitely won't hold as much weight as there is space. it is very flimsy, and i have already had the rails and drawer replaced. my belief is that it is a design flaw. the way it is designed this drawer just fits on one shelf and that shelf basically has to be on the top. when the drawer falls off or gets cockeyed, it falls on whatever you have on the second shelf. i also wish the freezer door containers moved. the only design that i have been happy with is the door space and containers. i would think hard before purchasing, as it is not a fun fridge to live with. there was not a floor model for me to see prior to purchase, and even if there had been, actually putting food in and living with it has shown it is poorly designed. the main reason i purchased is because i wanted filtered water, which has been fine except when it froze, and it makes me nervous it will do this again. so far, still under warranty and customer service was helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CAKJMK56 This frig is a great product
We purchased this frig for our rental unit. The renters really love the big size of both the freezer and frig. They especially like the water
dispenser. We also like it so much, we are considering purchasing
the same frig for our home! Great buy and great product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by RappPack I love this procuduct until Friday
This fridge was delivered to my house on December 6, 2011 on August 3, 2012 (my birthday) it died. I'm waiting for it to be repaired. I'm losing a ton of money in food from my freezer and also my wedding cake top which is irreplacable.
The repair guy acted like it's a normal occurance for a fridge to die after that short a period.
Needless to say, I'm not pleased at the moment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Casey3 Poor Craftmanship
Originally we thought that this fridge would be perfect because it had the larger cubic feet that we needed for the space that we had. Problem is you can't utilize all the space. almost anything in the center of the fridge freezes due to how the air circulates. The shelves can't be configured so that you can place a pitcher in it without having to use the drop down and back part of the upper shelf thus taking away a lot of more space. The wide drawer for storing cold cuts is not very sturdy and doesn't hold much weight. If you put the normal amount of meat and cheese in it the drawer binds when opening or closing. The water dispenser being inside is a nice feature when you have kids but needs a drip tray to catch the little drips that happen after use. The construction of all the shelves seems to be the same as the wide drawer and makes me nervous every time I put something with weight on them. The same (actually worse) for the freezer. The top shelf is pulling away from the sides and gives you the feeling it will fall. Also as soon as we got it we had to wait for a part for the water dispenser as it didn't work properly from the manufacture. This took almost 3 weeks because the part was back ordered which tells me there was more than just our one that had this problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hankkihei 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 avegirl 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 2 out of 5 by FBW7 Lack of separate temperature controls for freezer
The lack of separate temperature controls for freezer and refrigerator is a major design flaw. You cannot keep the freezer at zero degrees and the refrigerator at 37 degrees.
The water line to ice maker has frozen twice since Jul 2013, We replaced the water line valve, but that did not solve the problem. The component that houses the water filter was replaced under warranty in early October and we replaced the three-month old filter as well. So far the water line has not frozen, but am not confident that it will not freeze again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Annon 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 4 out of 5 by SAM55 questionable freezer
Haven't had this product long enough to really give an adequate review.
Have noticed that some items freeze in the freezer, while others do not. Not sure how this affects the storage life of the products. Ice cream doesn't freeze hard, and products that I sealed in bags also didn't freeze.

Pros: Great ice maker, water feature on inside of fridge. Lots of space and storage. Went from a bigger side by side fridge to this one due to the wall not allowing us to open our side by side all the way up. This one has more then enough storage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Docdanny This product has poor design and poor quality
After using a GE refrigerator for 15 years your refrigerator was a big disappointment.
Your one unit control for top and bottom is bad your quality leaves something lacking The design of your cooling outlets is very bad and does not distribute the cold are effectively or evenly.
The quality of the box is very cheesy.
The only reason I took the box was size limitations and I regret it
It seems that your company makes most of the other brands so there is no hope for anything better

Rated 5 out of 5 by dbgolf This product has all the features I was looking for.
I chose this Whirlpool fridge because it is replacing a still in working order Whirlpool fridge. The only reason I am replacing is for larger capacity. My old Whirlpool fridge is still running great and it is not quite 30 years old.
All the alleged experts say a fridge is only good for 10-15 years, and this old fridge has survived two tough moves.
Whirlpool has proved them wrong.
Additionally, this new fridge so far is exceeding my expectations

Rated 1 out of 5 by nursepam Would like to send it back!
Bought it in August....2 repair trips before initial warranty expired so we bought the extended warranty....good thing! Refrigerator section has stopped cooling now for the third time....Frozen food not solidly frozen. Poor repairman has spoken to factory tech each time.....and now replaced all the replaceable parts. Hoping for a new one this time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marmaduke This refrigerator has handles that don't protrude.
I would like to see a refrigerator just like this one which is about 3-4 inches shorter in depth. It would fit better in my kitchen.
This refrigerator works well, and I like the icemaker and water dispenser. However, this refrigerator is noisier than the ones I've had in the past. It is not very, very noisy, just takes some getting used to .

Rated 5 out of 5 by robert53 Good product!
My main concern was cooling, but it does it very well, their products are very good, just that here in Puerto Rico need more protection against mold by our tropical environment, that's the complaint principal in Puerto Rico about their products, we have confidence in their quality, but we are concerned about mold attack.

I don't like fridges; they're a sore thumb in a Retro kitchen. When I saw this fridge, I was excited! Streamlined doors/handle. LOVE the convertible top. Too bad NO ONE has it in their showroom, special order only. First one came in damaged.
Happy with the looks, the freezer section, the amazing door shelves that adjust.
BUT....don't like the varying temps...the humidity. Sometimes the veggies Freeze, sometimes there's sweat. Hard to adjust temp (both freezer/fridge same button).
Then, I found the Drawers to be Janky. They don't shut tightly, so how can the temp be adjusted? Tons of opening crevices in the drawers.
LOVE that the water spout is on the INSIDE...hate the tacky outside look. (seems my version is being stopped and all are outside). Water is TASTY! filter is $$.
Price was excellent! and rebate proffered by SCE.
Overall, I like the pluses more than the minuses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by msbeal8 Love It
This is a great refrigerator. Not fancy, but meets my needs. I would prefer it a little taller and less deep. The only thing that I don't like is that there is only one temperature control for both the refrigerator and freezer. They should be separate. If the freezer is cold enough to keep the ice cream really solid, then the stuff in the refrigerator freezes. So I live with softer ice cream.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Katedj Overall just average.
I chose this product after having bad luck with the Kenmore refrigerator that I had recently purchased. I'm having essentially the same issues with this model although not as extreme. The freezer isn't cold enough. When I raise the temperature level for the unit the refrigerator freezes the produce. It should have duel controls. The ice cream is soft.
The collapsable shelf is a great idea in theory but it doesn't work very well in practice.
I do like the inside water dispenser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wings77 Excellent product at a reasonable price
This refrigerator is exactly what we needed. It has ample room inside, with easy-to-adjust and arrange shelving. The controls are placed where they can be accessed without moving items inside. The efficiency rating is high enough that we don't worry about consuming too much electricity. A perfect unit for us.

I really love my whirlpool refrigerator. It does everything its supposed to do and does it quietly. The water dispenser works great and the water tastes awesome. My kids have been drinking a lot more water since it's been hooked up.I really love the gallon storage in the door. The only thing I'm not a big fan of is The sliding shelf. I do not use it as much as I thought I would and now it's off its track and near impossible to get back on.
