Pretty good deal for the price.

Replaced a 10-year old GE of similar design... Ice maker takes up too much space - much of it dead air (for the same volume specified, frozen food didn't transfer). Ice maker is louder than average. Mechanical toggle switches on front panel (made to look like keypad/electrical buttons) to switch between cube/crushed, etc. Circulating fans do not shut off when the door is open (a "cool" feature on the GE, hard to say if it was functional or possibly even detrimental adding stops/starts on the compressor). Door handles are too easy to remove (frequently work loose and need to be tapped back into place). Even though there are some limitations on shelf placement, several functional configurations are available. Door shelving does not appear to be sturdy enough to handle typical loads (e.g. multiple 2-liter bottles) - check back in 20 years. Very amused that I can tag this review with "Cooking Performance". A bit worried that water filters might prove expensive or hard to find (certainly the case for the GE).

Comments about Whirlpool ED5FVGXWS Stainless Steel Side-By-Side Refrigerator:
When we purchased the house the the fudge was a deciding factor. My wife and our realtor busted my chops about it but I demanded that the previous homeowners left the fridge. Little did I know that the fridge, the stove and the dishwasher "a trifecta" were of the same brand. We came to find out that the ice machine and water dispenser is inoperable, but I believe it's an easy fix. However the fridge still works fine. Overall I'm more then please with the fridge and the way it makes my kitchen look so sharp. Oh and my wife and realtor aren't busting my chops now! ;)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Had it for about a year and one of the door shelves broke. They seem very flimsy. All of the bulbs (inside and out) burned out within a few months. It constantly needs defrosting because the vent from the freezer side freezes over and blocks airflow to the fridge. I've lost all of my food at least twice already.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great new features.

My new favorite feature is the water filter being in the front of the refrigerator, so easy to change.

Had to replace drawers(twice) and shelf due to cracks.
Had this unit less than two years. all three of the plastic shelves and the plastic crisper drawer in refrigerator had cracked and needed to be replaced. not under warranty. Almost $175.00 including shipping to replace them all. Not a "high quality product" as stated in the user guide.
When I bought this refrigeration I have to admit, I went with the cheapest one I could get that matched all of the other appliances, so I didn't do much research other than I wanted to hit a certain price point, and this one did. With that in mind, I have been very satisfied with the refrigerator! It is whisper quiet (except when it does its auto-defrosting every once in a while for a few seconds), looks good and I haven't had any issues after 3-4 years! I do have a couple complaints, the water dispensor / ice maker is black plastic and tends to get stained pretty easy and is kind-of cheap looking up close. Interior is great though!
