We purchased this freezer in August of this year - 2011. We were impressed with how quickly it got cold. We were really impressed with how well it maintained its temperature during a recent 3-day power outage we had at the end of September 2011, just after we finished stocking it full. Not only did the alarm never even sound (only because it didn't get warm enough), but we didn't even suffer any freezer burn when the power came back on. Couldn't say the same for our new refridgerator freezer section (of another brand) which suffered a melt-down AND freezer burn.

Purchased this item less than two months ago and came home to a complete mess after work. Yes it was plugged in, and NO the door was not open. While we were throwing out an entire freezer full of meet, the freezer did not even attempt at trying to run. Luckily we have a great local distributor who we won't have any problems dealing with. I know Whirpool is a great brand and will probably buy from them again. Just wanted to ensure that Whirpool knew that there was a faulty one out there. On the positive note- I learned it was VERY easy to clean! Shelves slide out easily and there are next to no nooks and crannies to collect dirt.

Comments about Whirlpool EV161NZTQ White Upright Freezer:
I've had my new freezer for a couple of months and am very pleased with it. I especially like all the storage space in the door for smaller items and the removable basket at the bottom is a great convenience.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Lots of room and cools quickly!
from Sioux Falls, SD, United States
We bought this freezer a few months ago after relocating. We were expanding our family and figured we would need to expand our freezer space. This freezer cools very quickly, even when putting warm items in it. The auto defrost works fabulously. There is so much room in it we aren't sure how we are going to fill it! It is very quiet. You don't even know its there.
Good bargin for the price

Good configuration of shelves and a bottom basket. Allows logical storage of food and easy access to everything.

Works pretty well. A little hard to level. Pretty quiet.

We have had this freezer for a month. We are happy with the purchase. It is nice not to have to dig for food as we had a chest freezer before. It would be nice to have one more shelf or at least adjustable shelves to help with the separation of food/meat. One more basket would be great as well. We had to purchase some plastic shelves to add to the existing shelves.
Better than expected
from Delaware, United States
I purchased this freezer to replace one that had malfunctioned. I lost almost $1500.00 worth of meat because there was no temperature alarm. This new freezer is fantastic. It looks like once I replace all the meat I lost, I will be even more happy. Plenty of room. Only wish there were wire ledges that could be raised on the front edges so flat packages can be stood on end like a file to use the space better. I use a sealer that makes flat packages. Standing them up makes it easier to keep stock rotated.
Solid freezer, quiet, efficient
from Cincinnati, OH, United States
We bought this freezer to replace one that was leaking freon, wouldn't keep temp, and was not energy efficient. I have already noticed a change in our utility bill which frankly surprised me. I am still getting used to the shelving but it does seem roomy. I don't recall having a "don't block the vents" restriction before, but so far we have been able to work around that. I was happy this had a built in freezer alarm, but unfortunately the alarm is so weak you can only hear it in the room in which the freezer is located. It's not very helpful when your freezer is in the unfinished part of your basement and you can't even hear it in the finished part. I would use a separate alarm as we did before with an external temperature sensor but the thin wire that went to the sensor broke the door seal and I couldn't find a way around it. I'm a bit anxious I might lose the food at some point due to the issue with the alarm, but all in all we are happy with our purchase.

We bought the Whirlpool upright model freezer in July of 2014. The door opened in the wrong direction but by carefully following the enclosed instructions I was able change the hinges and door handle. It was easy. The freezer works as advertised and has been problem free. I would recommend this model for families who require lots of freezer space and prefer the upright model.

Let me tell you one thing: all our appliances are Whirlpool Brand. We just love their products. We made this purchase and we dont regret a thing. Freezer works great, so far and it has a lot of room, that actually fills pretty fast if you live in a area like ours , fat away from the big city. One thing I would like to mention, about my microwave oven to the guys from whirlpool, hopefully they will read this and somehow they will get back at me. In our kitchen we have Gold line of appliances and the panel that holds the display was never sturdy enough. probably the handeling of our box was not quite done properly and the panel is kinda shaky from the begging. A technician replaced the panel but that did not quite solve the problem. Maybe someone from whirlpool will hear me and they will get back at me. In conlusion , i highly recommend any Whirlpool product . Im happy with my $$ spend

Bought this a year ago and quite happy with it. Freezes quickly and deeply. Door handle had a tendency to slip off but we seem to finally have it in place.
