Rated 5 out of 5 by from icemaker built into the door, no smudge finish on exterior We got a great deal (price wise) on our fridge. We wanted the look of stainless steel and got one with the finish that does not show finger prints...a life saver when it comes to wiping the surface. The extra feature that is our favorite...the icemaker is built into the door. This gives us an additional shelf in the freezer side. Other features we fell in love with: the quiet when the icemaker and motor of fridge are running. You can barely hear anything. Our fridge is bigger than the old one...more interior space. The lines on the outside are sleek, the door handles are quite lovely and the doors open easily. The interior storage is perfect..we love it!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the cost. This fridge cools better than the last fridge I had that cost over $2,000. Ice and water work better than more expensive fridge. Water dispenser doesn't drip. Ice is always full. Never gets clogged. I have to admit, it works great overall and for the price you can't beat it. The only problem with this fridge is that it's a bit noisy. I had a problem with it at first but now I'm used to it. Wife says we don't sleep in the kitchen so why am I complaining about it? I absolutely love that it stays clean and you can't see fingerprints. We have 4 kids and it's always clean. I had to give it a good rating because it is super cold, super clean, looks great, lots of space but it's noisy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the Best Refrig.! What can I say except that it's the best refrig. I have ever had! Love that the ice storage is on the inside of the door. Makes more room in the freezer. Don't find any faults with the refrig. at all. Very spacious. It's the second Whirlpool refrig. I have purchased. First one (12 yrs. old) still running great, in my garage now, use as back up room. I would highly recommend this refrig.! GREAT product, won't go wrong with this one! Thank You Whirlpool! : )

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Model and Good Price Lot's of space in freezer and fridge. Lighting is well done. Ice maker has been trouble free so far. I was worried about the small 4 lb capacity of the ice make,r but it does seem to keep up without using the "extra fast ice" feature. The ice maker is a little loud as it drops ice in the bucket as the unit is in the door. The sound often scares my guests, but you do get used to it. I did take and use two old shelves from my previous Kenmore; one for fridge and one for freezer as it seems there was lot of empty space and I preferred more shelves vs tall items storage. The shelves were not designed for this unit, but you can make them fit. The unit qualifed for the $50 Energy Rebate in California.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! This unit is very quiet. I really like the space that is in the freezer section. I can clearly see everything that is in the space. It is nice that the ice is in the door and not taking up space in the freezer area. The fridge side is nice too. I would of liked if the other vegetable bin had the moisture reduction button. I buy a lot of vegetables, so that would of been nice. Other than that, everything is PERFECT. I like the style and the stainless steel. The next thing I want to purchase is a stand up freezer and it will be a Whirlpool. I would highly recommend this brand & will buy it from Home Depot again because the customer service and delivery service was excellent..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a good side-by-side fridge that fits in our tight spot. We got this fridge to replace a 25 year-old machine. I like the side-by-side design and it has the right dimensions (something we had a hard time finding). Ice dispenser in the door is a great feature, but it sometimes spits out ice minutes afterward when nobody's around. I have several problems with the fridge part: items freeze on the top shelf (I've tried adjusting the temp, but then things are too warm down below), the shelves are lined with white plastic that sticks up a bit, so you can't put items all the way to the edge, the door won't close on its own if you put a gallon of milk in it. So overall, it's good, but not the greatest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great in-door ice maker and loads of room! This refrigerator was selected over Samsung's in-door ice maker refrigerator because the reviews stated it had a better design. All that has been true, and even with a family of four we seem to have trouble filling it up - it's the best inside design of any side-by-side we've seen. Ice cubes are smaller but work great drinks. Food stays wonderfully cool and fresh at recommended temperatures. Only problem is that water on door isn't cold (supposed to be 50 degrees but repairman could not lower to that temp); and strange but short minor noise when water flows to ice maker and ice drops. Very good product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall this is a great refrigerator This is our third Whirlpool refrigerator and are overall satisfied. First week though the defrost function was not working. Called service and they discovered the wiring to the defrost timer came loose. Top shell in refrigerator side is not adjustable and is an issue with placing tall containers. Ice maker bin is a bit small and it seems to take a long time to make ice even in fast ice mode. The compressor is a bit loud. The display panel is great and easy to use. Do like the clean look compared to the older Whirlpool refrigerators.
