my husband & i purchased this refrigerator in april 2011. we have made it 6 months without any issues with the performance of the fridge/freezer. this model has amazing storage capacity and definitely keeps our food at appropriate temperatures. we love the ice/water dispenser. we ALWAYS have ice...some times too much and we end up dumping some out. my only issue with the fridge is the door handles. they are not flush to the door and when cleaning the fridge my paper towel gets caught and i have to pry it out. it's the only issue we have had with the fridge thus far. the review before us was extremely negative, it may be that we were very lucky to receive a perfect appliance. i definitely would recommend this refrigerator to anyone. we are very happy with our purchase.

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.

Super Sized Refrigerator
By Jay W
A spacious freezer section well lit with drawers. The refrigerator side is expansive and well lit. A well planned shelving and compartment layout. A place for everything! And we are saving about Eight dollars a month due to it's high efficiency rating!
Whirlpool is the best!!!

Very dissatisfied. After 3 months shutting on and off. Not making ice. Loud noises. Need to be replaced. Should not have any issues with a new product of this make
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
The best part is when you open the door
Replaced a much larger refrigerator with this one. The design is very good, the simple design change of moving the ice maker to the door is really nice, that space is difficult to use anyway. The LED lighting is spectacular. Simple feature that is a nice touch. I was disappointed that the filter refill program that automatically sends water filters periodically stopped carrying filter 1 that this product uses.
very good product

3rd fridge own very good in design. Good in price. Very quiet.
Great Features & Design!
from Cookeville, TN
Overall we are very happy with our fridge. It is a little noisy at times, but not too bad. The drawers could be a little more sturdy, but we love the extra space provided due to the theater lighting and in door ice maker! Great item for the price!
High quality with all the bells and whistles
We've had our Whirlpool for a year now and it has performed flawlessly. Whirlpool engineers have done a good job in creating lots of space while not sacrificing features. We like having the ice maker in the door allowing for more freezer shelf space. There is a slight "hum" when using the water tap, but wouldn't say it's noisy. Would have liked the option of having the black part on the front in white, but all the features and solid performance with reduced energy more than compensate for our cosmetic preference.
A very good refrigerator with a couple of reservations.
from Albuquerque, NM
I enjoy this refrigerator very much with the exception of the icemaker and the icemaker refill system.The ice dispenser sounds like a threshing machine roaring and grinding so loudly you cannot hear other people talking to you. The ice is slow to come out, so you have to listen to the dispenser roar until you get a few cubes out.I would rather reach in the back and pick out the ice rather than listen to that infernal racket. That's faster and quieter. My 20 year old GE icemaker was much quieter and dispensed ice more quickly.At night can you hear ice dropping, followed by the loud filling of the ice maker. This goes on all night until it's full.A nice refrigerator with great features, marred by a hideous ice maker which I find totally perplexing.
A perfect fit!
from Coral Springs, FL
When shopping for a new refrigerator, we had a specific size space to fill. I was initially shopping another brand, but this model was the only one that was short enough to fit the space, and had all of our desired features. As it turns out, we made a great choice with this model, as well as the other matching appliances we bought.The LED lighting is outstanding. The door-mounted ice unit works very well, but tends to be a bit noisy. The inside space is well organized, and the water filter just notified us to "order filter" (which I have) after about 5 months, which is another great feature. Overall, we're very happy with the looks and functionality of this fridge!
