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:
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.
from Georgia, United States
My new favorite feature is the water filter being in the front of the refrigerator, so easy to change.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Had to replace drawers(twice) and shelf due to cracks.
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!
Whirlpool side by side

I loved the look and thought having the whirpool brand would guarantee me little problems, but, I must of got the lemon? They came twice in the first 3 months and it took over a week and a half for parts. Not happy. Ruined all refrigerated items and I'm just not sure what happened to the whirpool I've depended on for yrs?

Looks OK the only problem I have is that the water dispenser opening is short if you have a tall glass you can't fit it under and the water spills all over even if you try to move it around when you are filling it...... other than that it's OK

Lots of storage and love the look!
from Big Lake, MN, United States
We have had ours for almost a year and it's been great! Love the water and ice features and all the shelves for storage!
Good appliance. No issues. Buttons for fridge light and water dispenser light are a little hard to push, could be better design there.
Ice is nice
I'm not an engineer but it seems to me that a lighted indicator to let me know that the ice maker light is on is non-sensical; I need an indicator to show me where to turn off the light. When I am getting crushed ice, I could also use an indicator to show me where the water button or ice cube selection button are located. And what does the 'locked' button do when it is unlocked by the adjacent button. Also, the crushed ice dispenser is messy, with a lot of crushed ice fragments falling onto the floor. Otherwise, it's wonderful to have crystal-clear ice and filtered water, and the refrigerator performs beautifully!.
It's Whirlpool or nothing
