Bought it in May 2011. Really started using it in August 2011.My husband and I were remodeling our kitchen and a new refrigerator was not in the budget, but I kept complaining about our old/new french door-freezer drawer model we had purchased (Brand unknown). I DO NOT like the design of the freezer drawer-- the bending over and not seeing a clear view of MOST things inside your freezer (picture you dresser drawer trying to find that "one" shirt-- same frustrating feeling with those types of freezers)AND BEHOLD! a freezer that is so well organized and able to see exactly what is in it without digging!!! YAY. Love the ice compartment in the door, I have my drawer system spaced so that the top of the drawers are also shelves, works great!With the refrigerator though they did this funky design where the door shelving units -- there are two types (one narrow and the other deeper) BUT YOU CAN'T put them anywhere on the door. only one size will fit on the top and the other only on the bottom half of the door. This is really frustrating because I wanted to reconfigure it where the drawers in the refrigerator would be all one... kind of confusing and in the end I put it back to the configuration it was when it came, things are great, cold, almost too cold! love the water filter, the LED lights (not too bright) in other words it has turned out to be the perfect Refrigerator- minus my first try at organizing it but I am very happy with it as is.My Husband loves it.The ice maker is audible from down the hall with the door open. Once there was a piece of ice that must have been jammed and melted and fell which was loud and we woke up thinking something was going on... but it was only this piece of ice-- hasn't happened since.

I have owned the product one month and I regret the purchase. After having owned my previous side-by-side for nearly 13 yrs without a single issue I was convinced that Whirlpool was my only choice for a replacement when I remodeled the kitchen. I am convinced now that my old unit was the last reliable fridge I would own. In the month I have owned the unit it has only managed to produce three bins of ice. Now that I have done more research I realize I should have stayed with the basic ice and water dispenser with the analog controls for cooling. I even went to the extent to purchase an extended warranty because of my lack of faith in the the control center mounted in the door. My fear is that it will fail making the entire appliance useless and I am hazard to guess what a replacement would cost. Considering that I paid nearly twice the price for this fridge than my last one I would have expected better from the mfg.What sold me on the unit was the capacity and energy efficiency; my wife liked the lighting as well. Beyond this, there is not much that separates this model from the lower-end offerings. Other items of mention, the upper and lower shelves on the door are not interchangeable. I feel they should have provided one additional lower door shelf due to provide additional versatility. I purchased the stainless finish to match my other appliances. If you purchase this model be prepared to clean it constantly. My previous white unit did not show the fingerprints nearly as much as this one does. I have always been happy with my whirlpool appliances in the past and it is a shame this unit has tarnished my opinion.

Looks great but has drawbacks
By Pretty easy to please.
from North Augusta, SC
Appliance looks great. I purchased all matching Whirlpool appliances. Issues for me: the shelves are not adjustable, i mean what is up with that? I had to purchase a different tea pitcher because my old one was too tall to fit on any shelf. The light on top is positioned directly in front overhead of top shelf and hinders the height of what and where you can place items on the top shelf. Very odd. I've had to adjust refrigerator temperature from the recommended setting of 37 degrees because food was freezing in the refrigerator. Also , we are already getting the "order filter" light after less than 5 months of use. Replacement filters are $40 each plus tax. Ouch.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Makes smaller amounts of ice compared to other refrigerators. Ice dispenser if very loud while dispensing. But it is very spacious.

Great Family Fridge
By Lisa HG
from Livermore, CA
I love the lighting in this refrigerator/freezer. The ice maker on the door is great too. It frees up way more space than you lose in the one or two door shelves. The ice maker and water dispenser are really loud and the buttons are awkward and are hard to operate with just your glass. You pretty much have to put your glass on the shelf and push the button.
Great refrigerator with one small problem
from Kansas City, Missouri
We like the refrigerator a lot, but we have a noisy "damper door" contained within the upper left part of the fresh food side marked "Fresh Flow." We are trying to get this fixed. We also have an squeak when we open the fresh food door. Other than those small problems, we like the appliance.
