The old side-by-side that was left by the previous home owner quit unexpectedly and I wanted to get a top-freezer model so I could keep large items in the freezer. Unfortunately, there were very few Whirlpool models of any kind available in my area for immediate delivery, so I chose this model. I like the in-door storage for milk and soda cans, and love having a large, lighted freezer, but I'm disappointed in the arrangement of the shelves in the refrigerator. I had to remove the middle shelf in order to store 2-liter bottles upright on the bottom shelf, and had to lower the top shelf to make room for my water pitcher. Instead of having 3 shelves, I now have 2. Also, I have to bend down in order to see and pull items off the top shelf. (I'm 6'2" tall.)The freezer and refrigerator work well to keep food cold, but it is louder than the previous one. I can hear it turn on and off from my bedroom at the opposite end of the house. (1650 sq. ft. ranch.)I like the outside style except for one thing. The handles have sharp edges. Even a slight rounding would've been better.Mine does not have the built-in ice maker, so I can't comment on that.

I had larger and easier storage facilities in our Amana 17 cu ft refrigerator. The selves were at least adjustable.The door handles on this unit are squared off and are sharp when you make contact with them. My wife constantly hits her head when trying to retrieve food or store food for future use. The exterior surface is shiny and shows every finger print. The refrigerator sticks out six inches further into the kitchen area. The reason we purchased this unit was the refrigerator size fit the hole we have in our cabinets and be did not like black or stainless steel. Evidently white is back in.

Lot's of Shelving
from Saint John, NB
Comments about Whirlpool Black Top-Freezer Refrigerator:
Still going strong after 3 years, no issues. Lot's of variety to the shelving on the door as well as great crispers and main shelves. Cleans easy. The compressor is a little loud at times.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The frig is very easy to use. I like the easy level casters. The twin crispers make it easy to regulate the vegies from the fruit.The only problem I found was that when you open and close the freezer door the lower door tends to open slightly. I had to add a short nylon strap with to 20lb. magnets with hooks to keep the door tight. This works great.

I have had the refrigerator for about a month now, I really like the way the doors are set up and being able to have a milk as well as OJ slot, that is a very nice convenience.
Perfect RV refrigerator
from Hunker, PA, United States
This refrigerator came standard equipment in our new Tiffin Open Road Motor Home. We are thankful that Tiffin Motors had the insight to install a refrigerator as good as this one. We had a Norcold in our old Rv. Worst fridge I ever owned. Worse company to deal with. Thank you Wirlpool for making a Fridge that fits and works well in rv's. I cannot comment on how it will perform in the future, but I also have Wirlpool appliances in my home and they are very reliable. Thanks again.

The fridge works well. There are some things I'd change about it. The shelves could be more adjustable, as well, the door storage should be set up for greater adjustment. Storage in the freezer door is pretty much useless, not big enough compartments.Wish it had an ice maker in it, or better yet, in the door water/ice. More money would of gotten that I suppose.
from Conyers, GA, United States
We have had the refrigerator about two months and couldn't be more pleased. The refrigerator is roomy and has plenty of space for large dishes (unlike a side-by-side that is difficult to get anything sizeable in it). We like everything about the refrigerator and glad that we choose Whirlpool.
Poor choice !!
By catchya Tom
from Anacortes, WA, United States
I purchased this unit Aug 2014 from Lowes. They installed the ice maker, delivery and installation.This unit replaced a 2002 Amana bottom freezer- still works fine, but no ice maker. This refrig. door storage does not compare to the Amana. The bottom door shelf guard fell off dumping the contents on the floor.Replacement part supplied by WP. Shelf arrangement in the box is impractical- lost space. I should have purchased a bottom freezer with ice maker and paid more attention to door and box storage and shelf positions by brand.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great frig for the price
from Richmond, RI, United States
Bought this unit 3 months ago after searching for some time to find a frig that was bigger than the old Whirlpool 18 cu. ft we had and that would fit in frig cabinet enclosure at a good price. Excellent storage rated @ 19.1 cu. ft. - performs very well and is expected to be very energy efficient. Nice shelf storage design.
Good energy conservation

I like the layout and the usefulness of this appliance. The only thing that I find lacking is a light for the freezer section, but it is not a big draw-back.
the size perfect for the place we put it
