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:
refrigerator is quiet smooth running and operates at the lowest energy star rating but if your guy that likes integrated technology like me this is not your refrigerator. It's a great first start for a family of 1 to 3 and will get you by for many years to come.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great refrigerator for the price
By happy in Park Forest
from Park Forest, IL, United States
I bought this refrigerator about 3 months ago and I really like. There is plenty of room to accommodate food for 2 people. I like that I can put the milk in the door and that the shelves are adjustible. I'm not crazy about the handles.
very nice looking

Should have a better shelf for gallons of milk and 2 litre soda bottles.
Good basic model

This model included a full-width meat drawer which was a selling point for me. Unfortunately there is only one shelf in the freezer where my old one had two. It is a very good value for the money.
Very pleased thus far

I have had this refrigerator for about two weeks now. I bought it to replace a refrigerator that I had for twenty years. I love the storage doors on the inside door that allows for different shape containers etc. It was wrapped and shipped beautifully. The delivery was easy and the movers were professional! Thus far, I am very satisfied.
More cubes same space
Was impressed with my new Whrlpool refrigerator. I went to my dealer with a tape measure to make sure my new refrigerator fit in the space in my kitchen. I don't know how you did it but in roughly the same space there is more room inside. My family thinks it's fancy looking (whatever).
I like a lot of the features, especially the drawer for eggs, cold cuts, etc

I bought this in July, even bought a "black" model, which I love, have always had a great deal of luck wih the "Whirlpool" brands

I've enjoyed the fridge so far. The space inside is flexible and roomy for all the weird sized jars out there.
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.
