Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 401 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A wonderful refrigerator that serves our family of 4 well. Pros: I am extremely happy with this product design. Initially, I didn't want a side-by-side, but this refrigerator is pretty. The capacity is large, so I have not ran into any space issues (even through Thanksgiving leftovers!) The refrigerator has two side door shelves are wide. Wide enough to hold two 1-gallon containers per shelf! I like the paddles for the on-door ice and water, as opposed to "flippers" some makers use. Flippers seem to malfunction more, in my experience. Also, and very important to my family, the produce doesn't freeze! I've had that issue with all of our previous refrigerators. Cons: There are only two minor cons. 1. I would like toThe on-door water dispenser to dispense a tad more quickly. 2. The sound level is a tad loud. Just a tad for both. Overall: I highly recommend this refrigerator. December 31, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Product is poor quality After purchasing this product in April 2013 worked fine until 5 months old and crack in hose leading to filter lead to my removal of lower drawers and noticed cracks are in lower left floor of appliance. Now unable to use water and ice feature and very concerned about recommended fix for cracks! As I approach year of ownership I can honestly say I will never own another Whirlpool appliance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Really Happy with my new Side by Side Refrigerator :) A primary reason for choosing this model was the fact that it fit into my existing opening in the kitchen. It seems as though refrigerators are much larger as far as dimensions. The side by side refrigerator has nice features; glass spill proof shelving, lots of interior light, variable temperature controls. I really like the ice storage in the door of the freezer, but it makes it a little harder to get into the freezer to clean. But it's much easier to clean the ice bin so it's worth it. Like that the freezer has storage drawers as well as shelves. The features in the door (ice & water) are just right....and I like the "fast ice" feature for when I entertain. It helps to keep up with the extra demand. :) All in all, I am very happy with my new Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerator. Would LOVE to replace my worn out washer / dryer with a brand new Whirlpool set. In fact, the next laundry pair I buy WILL be Whirpool, as well as the next range! (have already got my eye on the ones I would like to have) Thanks for making quality appliances! November 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this Refridgerator Unexpectedly (of course) we had to buy a new refrigerator...our old model we had for about 15 years, so with all of the new technology out there we were quite overwhelmed with choices. We love this model - the freezer has excellent space - the ice bin on the door really frees up a ton of space. Lighting is excellent in both the fridge area as well as freezer. The water filter is in a very convenient area to change, we have yet to change it though. There is also an air filter in the refrigerator side, the filter comes with a tag that tells you when to change it - this was the only item we had issue with - we couldn't figure out how to install it! But finally got it done. The ice & water on the door is fantastic - the compartment allows for taller glasses & pitchers - very easy to use. Controls on the door are a cinch to understand and the ease of use is fantastic - if you are in the market for a new refrigerator/freezer - buy this one - don't waste your time looking at another model! I would recommend this model to everyone - we love it. I'm hopeful it will last as long as our last model did! October 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good fridge overall, but has some shortcomings We purchased this fridge this summer and have been happy overall. However, there are a few shortcomings. The biggest of which is the lack of shelves in the freezer and lack of a dairy compartment (top of fridge door). One has to stack things several items deep to get full use of the freezer space, which is annoying. The ice maker falls short for our family of four at high usage times (summer), but is otherwise great. A rattle/clunking noise (compressor per repairman) has developed over time when the doors are shut, but was told there was not repair for it and it is only mildly annoying. It might not seem we are happy with the fridge, but we are because it is light years better than the other two brands we had before. The repairman was here so much we got to know him by name with those brands. In fact, he recommended the Whirlpool brand for a replacement brand when the other one paid out on the extended warranty. He stated he hardly ever had repair calls on the Whirlpool brand fridges. I don't think we will be seeing much of him now. October 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice, bright inside, noisy icemaker I like the stainless doors but was disappointed that the sides weren't also stainless but I've gotten used to it now. I love the brightly lit interior and the ability to move shelves to different spacing but find that it really needs an extra shelf in the fridge side and the freezer side and I am not willing to pay the nearly $80 price to buy one. The ice maker is very noisy on dumping and also on refilling. I do not like the smaller cube size. I wish I had more info on these exact features when I was looking for the fridge online. It also has now been discontinued and I only bought it new on January 31, 2014. April 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good convience Gave this four stars instead of five because of the stainless finish which seems to be particularly susceptible finger prints and smears and is difficult to get rid of them even with a stainless cleaner. Other wise the unit preforms very well, its indoor water/ice feature is very convenient and the overall size is great. April 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love my refrigerator! I'm very happy with this refrigerator. I'd love to have some pictures in the info booklet on different ways to set up the shelving. I love the smaller ice cubes and that the light comes on when getting water or ice. We did pick this model because the ice maker is located in the door. April 3, 2014
