Rated 4 out of 5 by 50 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointed with the design of this refrigerator This refrigerator's design inludes a plastic meat and cheese drawer that runs the width of the unitunderneath a center shelf. The design of this drawer is inexcusably flimsy and poor. The drawer frequently pops out and falls onto items on the shelf below. It is very difficult to put back, particularly in a narrow galley kitchen like mine. I can't understand why Whirlpool's design engineers allowed a drawer like this in a refrigerator that costs as much as this one did (or any refrigerator, for that matter). I'm just furious about this, and I know it can't be addressed because there's no way to change it out for a different design. I will have to live with this badly designed, low quality aspect of the refrigerator for as long as I have it. I should add that the ice maker has stopped working too -- I am going to give Whirlpool the benefit of the doubt that this can be fixed, but there's no solution to this crummy, flimsy, poorly designed drawer except not to use it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wish I'd bought something different... This fridge serves the main purpose of keeping food cold. HOWEVER, I paid a significant amount of extra money in order to have the water dispenser on the front, and it's useless. It has to run a full 10 seconds to get the "room temperature" water out of the line and get to the cold water, and it comes out so slowly that it takes for-e-ver to fill a glass (the directions on the filter say to run 5 gallons before using the water... I spent 20 minutes running the water and only got 3 gallons). We've gone back to using our PUR faucet filter and fill pitchers and keep them in the refrigerator and just pour a glass. Could have saved ourselves a stack of cash and gone with a standard refrigerator. The nice thing about this refrigerator is the long pull-out tray in the middle and the area that will hold a carton of a dozen eggs. Also appreciate the fact that the lower shelf "rolls" back to accommodate tall items (such as the aforementioned pitchers of water). Also like that the door has a perfect spot for the milk jug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by I'm happy with my Whirlpool fridge! Overall a great fridge. Looks nice in the kitchen with the silver handles. Water dispenser for a top freezer unit isn't all that common and this feature is probably my favorite. Shelving layout takes some getting used to. Hard to find room for bigger bulkier items; milk, 2 liters of soda. Also shelving is a little flimsy, especially the center drawer. Overall though, the fridge and freezer are both vary spacious. The fridge door has a great design and offers ample space. As far as noise, you really only hear the ice dropping. Unit seems fairly quiet. I did have a problem with the ice maker about 3 months in. Unit stopped producing ice. Ends up the main line was frozen some how. Repair tech believed it may have been inserted too far into the hopper. I called Whirlpool since the fridge has a 1 year warranty. They had an excellent local repair guy out to my house within 24 hours and fixed the problem right away. Seemed to be a fluke thing as the repair guy said problem wasn't common or something he had come across often. October 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by External Water is great... The only reason the refrigerator is not a 5 star is that the deli draw rails are flimsy & would probably eventually break if i don't lift up slightly on the drawer when opening or closing. The external dispenser is a great feature & unique to this model. The two crisper drawers provide a tight seal for fruits & vegetables. One of the shelves is hinged & can be slid back to accommodate tall bottles. The door has plenty of space for a gallon of milk, salad dressings, condiments, butter, eggs etc. The freezer & refrigerator are a perfect temperature at the recommended setting. The ice remains in the bucket instead of overflowing into the freezer area as occurs with some other manufacturers. I also like the fact that the freezer shelves are glass instead of wire. I can't speak of long term reliability, as I only have had the refrigerator for a month, but my initial feeling is that I have made a very good purchase. August 12, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by I like the look of the fridge and the size was limited for the space but overall it is good. I was disappointed in 2 things. The noise level for when the motor runs was higher than I expected. Also, the trays inside are made of cheap plastic. Not very sturdy looking or feeling. March 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great looking and a compact fit. This fridge has served our family well. We had limited space and thus limited choices but this fridge has fit the bill perfectly. With the water dispenser in the door I feel the look is sleek while the functionality and innovation is ideal. The glass shelving contains spills and is functional yet looks high end without the high end price. We had a small problem about 6 months after purchase when the ice maker quit working. We came to find the fill tube had simply not been installed properly and thus iced over restraining any additional water into the maker and eliminating our ice production. Quick and easy enough fix however with minimal inconvenience. The only thing I would change to this point is either the material type or addition of dampers to the ice tray, butter door, and slider trays. They are quite loud; when you open the butter door or ice dumps into the tray it is noisy. If a different material were used or bumpers were placed to muffle the butter door slamming open it would increase my overall review from good to excellent. November 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great refrigerator I love this refrigerator. I spent 3 years looking for a refrigerator that would fit in a 32 and 1/2 inch space. Most refrigerators are 33 inches or 29 inches that would fit and the 29 inches are too small. I had a Whirlpool refrigerator with split shelves that had ridges on them that caused surface area to be lost. Everytime I opened that refrigerator I cursed it. Everytime I open this refrigerator I say how much I love it. The long drawer is wonderful. The water feature on the door is very convenient, although it would have been nice if ice was added. There are only two negatives that I would mention on this refrigerator. One is that the butter container is difficult to access as there is a plastic piece that prevents your hand from reaching in easily. The other con is that the top shelf of the refrigerator is a little narrow. Had the freezer been reduced by an inch that inch could have been added to the shelf space. This is a an issue that was caused by adding that long drawer, however I wouldn't trade it out. I am extremely happy with this purchase and recommend this refrigerator highly for people who have Limited space. January 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good, space-saving refrigerator We purchased this model as a space-saver due to the size of the refrigerator cutout in the cabinetry in our kitchen. It has been a good choice overall. Because of its size, we also have a 2nd refrigerator in the garage for additional chilled storage. Two minor items: The temperature control for the appliance is on the front panel next to the water dispenser. While this makes it simple to operate, the location causes the control to be bumped or accidentally pushed, changing the temperature up and down accidentally. Also, there is a trim piece below the door that constantly pops off due to the door's operation. All the electronics and water piping goes through this trim piece and then into the door, and the door swing causes it to come loose on the door hinge end. September 20, 2012
