This refrigerator is ideal for single/two person household. I had the exact model purchased in July of 1998 at a cost $160.00 higher from a local appliance dealer in Elmhurst than the one purchased from ABT. Kinda wish I purchased the original frig from ABT then. I junked the old one without calling for service. I applied the service call ($125.00-175.00) towards the new unit, afterall, its eleven years old and what else is going to go. The improvements are slight but noticeable. Two separate bins vice one on my original unit plus there is a clear window on shelve above to see the contents of the bins without opening them. The handle is easier to grab being that it is round at the top. It now has a separate butter-keeper that I did not have before. There is a "full" shelf in the freezer from one side to the other vice a half shelf that kept falling if overloaded. The only complaint that I have with the new unit verses the old is that it appears that the freezer is smaller. The vents drawing the cold air down to the refrigerator section are pointed towards the door. The old unit was minus the vents on the floor. Apparently,they were on the top and less efficient.Lastly, I swear by Whirlpool as I have three other major appliances bearing their name and I couldn't be happier. Very reliable.

My fridge went out a month ago and I panicked because I had just restocked everything. I looked online at a large furniture/appliance store and saw this relatively inexpensive model. It happened to be one that they could deliver the next day so I bought it based on that. I had never bought a Whirlpool appliance before in my life, but thought that they had a good reputation. Not seeing it in person was a disadvantage, but I am disabled and not able to get around to do this kind of shopping. Plus everything in my old freezer was defrosting. I should have paid more attention to the details but I needed a new one urgently. First of all, it's unattractive. Very square corners and door handles don't line up. And both doors slam back all the way open if you open them too far. Also they don't give you enough white covers to cover all the holes if they have to switch the handle to the other side.Then I noticed that it uses the MOST energy on the Energy Guide. Also, the butter container at the top of the door has a clear plastic door that flips up and slams back loudly and doesn't leave enough space to put a butter dish in it. So I took the plastic flip-up door off and that gives me more space to get the butter in. All in all I feel it is very poorly designed, very unattractive and poorly made and I regret very much buying it. I will, however, take part of the responsibility due to the fact that I made this purchase in such haste. I just didn't realize they made refrigerators like this. So partly my bad.

Terrible temperature control
from Minneapolis, MN
Single temperature adjustment would not keep food frozen and not freeze food in the refrigerator portion. Can choose frozen lettuce or soupy ice cream. Multiple repair calls and no solution I am currently waiting for total breakdown so I can buy a different refrigerator.
Not a good buy
from Covington LA
After 3 years we have lost several gallons of ice cream. About once a month it stops freezing then goes back to freezing. Makes no sense! The refrigerator will freeze your lettuce. Too small for more than 2 people.
frustrating drawer and center temp control
from stroudsburg, pa
Drawer for meat and cheese falls off track constantly. Temp. control is smack center of top of refrig. making it impossible to put milk in center....Freezer sits too low, making a person have to stoop over to see inside refrigerator (and we're short!). came with a dent... Only had two years- had to buy due to space in new home for fridg. Thinking about putting in the garage since it's such a frustration and getting something else. Daughters have different brands and no problems. Dealer was supposed to come and try to fix drawer and replace door. however, due to severely harsh winter and our driveway, we could not get them to us and warranty expired. Also, freezer does not freeze food well. have to use other freezer for ice cream.
Good refrigerator at a good price
from Nampa, Idaho
Our garage refrigerator was dying and we got a great price on a new Whirlpool. So far it works great and it is very quiet. Roomy bright interior.We expect to see a drop in our electric bill also, but have not had it long enough to find out how much.I have recommended Whirlpool to a friend who was interested in our new purchase.

It has been doing a fine job so far. It does not run near as much as the one I replaced.
from Farmington, Utah
I don't like the interior water dispenser very good. But since we are using is as the extra fridge in the garage, it isn't too much of a problem. The shelving space isn't as efficient as I would like, I wish it were more flexible.The FreshFlow produce preserver seems to be very useful so far.

Recently purchased a new home which came with a new Whirlpool refrigerator. I would have preferred the freezer on the bottom but am very happy with what I have.I find the capacity great! Moving from my previous home my refrigerator had very little space. Now I have more room than food.The shelf arrangement is easy to use and well organized.I am completely happy with my refrigerator!
