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.

Reversing the door difficult, defrost issues after 1 yr
from Portland, OR
Comments about Whirlpool EV161NZTQ White Upright Freezer:
We purchased this freezer in 2013 and it performed well for a year.Reversing the door was rather problematic because the door moulding doesn't interface with the interior light switch in a very robust manner. We had to loosen all the casing screws on the thermostat surround in order to position it so that the door would close properly.The defrost timer failed in the unit just outside of the 1 year warranty.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The freezer is making a humming sound. This concerns me. We have had it a few weeks.
It has great features and they work as advertised.

Quiet and Reliable
from Hamilton, ON, Canada
We have had our freezer for three months. It is quiet - I have a relatively new refrigerator in the basement and you can always hear that running, but I have to check that the freezer is working, it's so quiet. Keeps all items frozen, from juices to pizzas to meat.

From my purchase and ownership of a washer, dryer, refrigerator through the years they have more than exceeded my expectations in quality, design, performance and durability.The servicemen and salesmen are all professional and take their time to answer any questions about the products they sell. This is a huge factor. They're not only knowledgeable but they also believe in their products.I would advise anyone shopping to make Whirlpool their first and last stop. They need look no further for purchasing the best product that will ensure they have spent their money wisely.

22 years ago we bought our Whitlpool washer and dryer and had it many years with only a few fixes! Bought a Whirlpool gas stove 19 years ago and it's still in use. So when we needed a freezer we did not hesitate to get another Whirlpool! We bought a 16 cubic foot upright and we are very satisfied. Thank you Whirlpool!
Quiet from day one.
from Tilton, NH, United States
I only know that it's working because I can see the red indicator light on. Nice spacing between shelves and the large basket in the lower bin is just what I was looking for. I bought this to replace a chest model and now I can see what's in it as soon as I open the door, no more digging for items. Great product at a reasonable price.
I love how everything stays fresh.

I love how quiet the appliance is and everything is just there in front easy to grab and most of all it doesn't build up any ice. I just love it:)
