    My parents have owned this unit for over a year with the matching freezer. The resulting 60" wide side-by-side configuration with fantastic capacity is wonderful. When I went in to purchase my own set this year, my neighborhood salesman told me that he owns a set as well and has loved it for the last 4 years. Good job Whirlpool on the sidekicks line.

    We (happily) installed this and the freezer that goes with it 4 years ago in our new custom home. We really like the idea of a separate refrigerator and freezer and find that very functional for our lifestyle. Recently it stopped cooling, and we've learned that there is a slow freon leak that would cost more to fix than the cost of the refrigerator, thus we have to replace it AND the freezer, since they are a matched pair. (The style has changed). The 'sealed system' was only warranted for 1 year, and Whirlpool was unwilling to talk or help do anything about it. There are other reviews on the internet that mention the exact same problem. So, although we were happy with the product's appearance and function initially, none of that makes any difference when it won't cool four years later and is out of warranty. A certified repair person told us it was very unusual for a refrigerator's condenser and coils not to be warranted for at least 5 years. If you decide to buy this product anyway, be sure to spend the extra money for an extended warranty.

    Looks good on the outside

    Comments about Whirlpool Sidekick Stainless Steel All-Refrigerator:

    I first purchased my refrigerator inAug.2013 and by March of 2014 it broke down and was unable to be repaired. It was after replaced 2.weeks without a refrigerator. The new refrigerator did not work so now I had to wait another week before I could get a replacement delivered. That was in April 2014 it is August 2014 and it is working so far I keep my fingers crossed.

    Temp would not stay correctly, very loud, door was so ajar that a repairman could not fix it. Replaced the complete machine with a different model.

    3 failed in 10 years

    By seaglass

    from Rockport, ME, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool Sidekick Stainless Steel All-Refrigerator:

    The Sidekicks line is a terrific idea, but the quality of the refrigerator is poor. I've had 3 refrigerators in 10 years. The last one lasted only 14 months, just out of warrantee. We had the same failures of the cooling system described by many other reviews. I will have to remodel cabinetry in my kitchen, but it would be sheer stupidity to purchase another Sidekicks refrigerator. Why would I think another would last?

    Purchased my first one over 13 years ago. When it was time to replace I purchased another. Love the vast inside storage space and shelving.

    Comments about Whirlpool Sidekick Stainless Steel All-Refrigerator:

    Came with the house we purchased, they are new. Really like them. I saw them as we have matching freezer. The freezer has some thing I do not like. First how you can not open it back up right away after just closing it as it seal up. For the price the ice maker should standard and installed. The trim kits to go around both units are way over priced.

    Lots of Room, But Defective on Delivery

    By NWBigfoot

    from Courtenay, BC, Canada

    Comments about Whirlpool Sidekick Stainless Steel All-Refrigerator:

    We bought this all-refrigerator unit a month ago and really liked the features and having lots of room, since we already had a large chest freezer to store frozen food. However, almost immediately it became apparent that the noise the unit put out was beyond all reason - a howling that could be heard all over the house, right into the back bedrooms. Turned out that a copper pipe had been crimped through improper bending in the manufacturing process. Had to go through Whirlpool to get a warranty repair number. Fortunately the problem was obvious as soon as the back access panel was removed. The repair man fixed it on a return visit. Especially on a higher-priced item like this, you would think such a critical and immediately visible problem would have been caught by quality control before the unit left the factory, but not so. Now it is not exactly quiet, but the noise level is reasonable.

    good

    By Yogatoes

    from Vancouver, BC, Canada

    Comments about Whirlpool Sidekick Stainless Steel All-Refrigerator:

    Since purchasing this fridge in January 2014 we are on our third light bulb. After much scrutiny by tall man we realized that the light never went off, top of the fridge stayed very warm and the motor went all the time. We have fixed this by adding some putty and a felt piece to the protrusion at the top of the door and it now pushes the light switch off. The fridge is great but the inside of the door design is totally messed up!
