This fridge is everything we expected. The chrome door handles give it a classy look - much sleeker than a plain white model while avoiding the messy look of a stainless steel unit covered with fingerprints. We paired it with a white ice Whirlpool range. Air and water filters are conveniently placed and easy to replace. The fridge runs a little louder than our old Maytag, but because it is so efficient it runs less often; even so, the fridge is pretty quiet. The doors are NOT reversible - right hinge only. Both compartments are well lit and seem spacious compared to our old, same-sized Maytag. Bottom shelf has a split section that can be tucked away, providing more space for taller objects. Automatic ice maker and internal water dispenser are well placed and work well.

The freezer section has never worked well. Sadly, there is only one control for both refrigerator and freezer, so either the fridge part is perfect and the freezer does not freeze ice cream, and if adjusted the freezer works well but I have the milk and vegetables freeze and have to throw them out. Looks like from a previous review someone else had the exact same problem we do, but of course by now our warranty has expired and I'm stuck with the thing, it's not even two years old, what a shame. I can't even keep ice cream in the freezer, how moronic is that. Checking the temp with a thermometer, the refrigerator shows a perfect 40 degrees, while the freezer compartment is only 30. I'm sorry I bought it and would definitely not recommend it. And contrary to another reviewer, this thing is hardly silent, it's actually much much louder than my old Kenmore, very irritating noises especially at night.

Comments about Whirlpool 21 Cu Ft White Top Freezer Refrigerator:
I've enjoyed the fridge so far. The space inside is flexible and roomy for all the weird sized jars out there.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I brought this fridge 6 months ago and am very satisfied, but there are two things that i don't like. When you open the bottom door, it swings back and it seems like its dangling on the hinge, The second dislike is that when you bend down to get something out of the bottom, you have to be careful so as to not bump your head on the freezer door when you raise back up. My 8 year old grandson really got a hard knock from doing this.

I bought this refrigerator because it was highly rated by Consumer Reports. Big mistake. Here's why I don't like it: - Everything is taped or covered with plastic film. It took 30 minutes to get most of it off, but there's still fragments all over the thing that I haven't gotten around to removing. - Big sticker on top wouldn't peel off - Shelf arrangement illogical - Temperature control is tricky. owners manual is vague. - Temperature is either too warm or too cold, not well regulated. Stuff in refrigerator section freezes. - Filters require lots of flushing before use. - Internal water spigot delivers water at same temperature as tap water. - Frost forms in several areas. - Ice maker is real noisy. - Shiny black finish shows every touch.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I had to special order a refrigerator that would fit in the space under my cabinets. I am thoroughly satisfied and would buy it again.

This refrigerator replaced a GE that had never worked properly, so needless to say we arte quite pleased with its fine (and so far, reliable) performance.
So far so good

It stays cold and runs quietly, barely noticeable in my small condo. Shelves are strange configuration still trying to optimize usage. I think designers tried to incorporate too much flexibility into what is a simple design. Makes tons of ice.

This refrigerator is one of four whirlpool products that my wife and I own. They are reliable, well constructed and astatically pleasing to look at. I was quite pleased with the light in the freezer compartment and in the lower compartment as well. Good value for the Dollar.

Really like the refrigerator. Unfortunately, last one, same model, lasted 18 months. Refrigerant was leaking out while under warranty, but didn't stop working until manufacturers warranty was expired. Repairs would have cost about the same as a new refrigerator. Didn't get the extended warranty, so I got to buy a new one. Make sure you buy the extended warranty, at least long enough for the refrigerant to completely leak out if there is a leak.
Good fridge for our office!
We bought this refrigerator for our office & have been very happy so far. The Pro's: -only one of this size with internal water dispenser -movable shelves -fruit/veggie drawers -Fresh Flow air filter-although we haven't put anything stinky in the fridge, this will help when we have lunch platters with onions/lunchmeat in there The Con's: -the internal water dispenser is EXTREMELY slow - beyond extremely slow so be prepared to stand there for a while. Bring a book to read. -the button for the internal water dispenser is very sensitive so a little water leaks down the (inside) refrigerator wall before/after dispensing water -door can not be reversed to open from the right Overall we are happy with the choice we made with the size restrictions & need for an internal water dispenser.
