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.

satisfied to date
from fishkill, ny
owned for 2 mos. and still satisfied; specs actually list as 17.7 cu ft; adjustable shelves and large deli box are very good design features; 2 fresh veg and fruits boxes at bottom are adequate, but use the attached shelf for addition fresh veg storage
Whirpool fridge and freezer

I bought both fridge and stand up freezer a couple of months ago. I am very pleased with both....I had black appliances but had to buy stainless steel...I love it
from Dixonville, AB, Canada
We bought this fridge a month ago and absolutely love it! So much room for everything we need to put in fridge. For our family of 5 it works perfectly!

We've wanted sidekicks for 3yrs now and we always said when the fridge goes. Well we couldn't wait any longer so we went for it and we love them. We were thrilled to find them in white; perfect for our key lime green and white color scheme. They are so quite and with the wheels a breeze to move! Sidekicks are also extremely practical because we are only going to get older and with a chest freezer you have to dangle over the side with your feet in the air to get something out of the bottom. That's after you had to dig all the other items you didn't out so you could find it in the first place. With our sidekicks it's fantastic to have a Fridge that can hold so much more and a Freezer where it's easy to find everything and even easier to get to it!

This frig has no freezer; which is a perfect idea if one has the room for a nearby only-freezer. After four months, we are very happy with this Whirlpool.
The Right Amount Of Space!
from Tampa, FL, United States
We were remodeling our kitchen and thought it would be an energy saver to have just one refrigerator and one freezer instead of an extra one of each in our garage. We love to cook and freeze meals for times we don't feel like cooking. The Sidekicks are about 1-1/2 times the size of the average refrigerator and freezer and do the trick very nicely. We had an ice maker installed in the freezer so we have plenty of ice. We're not fans of door water/ice dispensers. We love the sound of these units when you close the doors and they're sealing tight. Everything is easy to get to inside. Great value for the money!
Looks good on the outside

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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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
from Rockport, ME, United States
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?
