I love this refrigerator. We had a 1993 Amana high end. I like this one much better. Old one was 19 cu this is 20 and it makes a big difference. We are not interested in all the bells and whistles. Wanted something basic and very energy efficient. This is it. Agree with other reviewer that it needs freezer light and bigger freezer door shelves. Also replace the can shelf with a regular shelf! We put a cardboard in it so we could use it for condiment jars.

While I am certainly happy to hear that this refrigerator is very energy efficient, I am bothered by a few design aspects, which, compared to my 1998 Gold refrigerator, are inferior: The first is, there is no light in the freezer section.. a great disappointment. Secondly, the two freezer door shelves are much too narrow compared to the old one; another disappointment. The "Gold" model had roll-out shelves in both compartments; this has none. The plastic bins are much too flimsy on the doors, and the large pull out drawer feels like it is going to completely fall out. Overall, I'd say this is not an upgraded product.

About Me Casual Cook
Comments about Whirlpool 21 Cu Ft Stainless Steel Top Freezer Refrigerator:
If you like cold sodas in the summer or anytime do not buy this one. The stainless steel seemed more difficult to clean when compared to my other new stainless appliances.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: If you are having issues with the cooling of soda in your Whirlpool refrigerator (and it was purchased from Abt), please call our appliance service department at 847-967-8830 for assistance. Your appliance comes with a one year parts and labor warranty so there should be no cost for service.

Since we were limited by space requirements, this was one of the few that seemed ok
from plainview ny
The unit seems to be operating efficiently but it does make some unusual sounds that we never heard from our previous refrigerator.
Good value, good quality.

Excellent second refrigerator

About Me Avid Cook
Awesome second frig. Lots of space. Needs split shelf option. Flimsy upper drawer broke on second day. Replaced immediately. Second one seems much better. Very quiet.
Service and delivery comments:
ABT's delivery & service personnel are the best. Cannot say enough good things about them.
from Chicago , Illinois.
Use as second frig unit. Great option. A split shelf option would have helped. The upper drawer was flimsy and broke on the second day. Was replaced immediately & seems to be much better.
Awesome delivery service as usual. Awesome service. Replaced the broken drawer immediately. Must have been a lemon. The second one is much better. ABT's delivery & service personnel are the best.
Very Poor Quality Compared to Older Whirlpool Units
from Northern Michigan
This Whirlpool refrigerator appears to have very poor quality when compared to my 10 year old Whirlpool refrigerator. The drawers are made of flimsy plastic and continuously fall off the shallow tracks when opened. The drawer end stops also work poorly. The wire freezer shelf does not have a center support so it bows badly when meat is placed on the top shelf. The energy efficiency may be good, but the drawbacks listed above make it very frustrating to use on a daily basis. Also there is no light or separate temperature control for the freezer.
I am not satisfied with this refrigerator. It is noisy! You would think with the advancements in engineering, computer software, Continuous Improvement and a desire to satisfy the customer that Whirlpool would not even consider selling this refrigerator. This is the last Whirlpool product I will buy.
Excellent product overall. Very Quiet, Energy efficient. Clean design
Excellent product overall. Very quiet - it's as if is "off" at all times. Energy efficient. Not expensive compared to peers. Simple and elegant design. very convenient. perhaps one thing I do wish is if it were a little bit colder (e.g. I like my soda ice cold) - at the price of sacrificing some of its ridiculous energy efficiency
from Okarche, OK
I've always had a 2 door ref/freezer and I wanted another one when we moved in our new house. I wish now the freezer was a little bigger. The veg. drawers are very confusing to me (high humidity/low humidity) on which way to slide. Do I have it on high or low?? The shelving on the freezer door - I wish they were wider.
