No problems with this. The ice dispenser switch went out about 2 years into it. Other than that no issues.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Its classy design and cool features chills the competition!
Our new Whirlpool stainless side-by-side seems to be right at home in our "classic" colonial style kitchen. It quietly updates the look of the kitchen without demanding a total renovation. The in-door ice maker is a great space-saver, and the filtered water is the best tasting water I have ever enjoyed, causing me to become a heavy drinker! The meat saver feature keeps meats far longer, and the built-in air freshener is a brilliant idea. This Whirlpool refrigerator is classy and cool; I'm glad I purchased it!

We were forced to replace our 13 yr old side by side just days after a big holiday --- and a refrigerator full of leftovers and special holiday treats. Lucky for us we shopped Lowe's and happened to find this model on closeout as a floor model and got delivery the next morning. It is beautiful, the handle feels good in the hand, the "unspillable" glass shelves are great and provide more flat edge to edge storage space than traditional shelves. Love the deeper door shelving too which means there is more room in the most handiest of places for condiments and other items used most often.One of our favorite features is the snack drawer. We keep it stocked with all our cheeses putting them at eye level so we can easily choose. The drawer is deceivingly large so we can stock up when sales are happening and put in a second row in the back as reserve. Cheese lasts a long time, especially unopened, so this is a great feature to be able to store it. We occasionally even age a large loaf of mild cheddar into a sharp version by keeping it a few months in reserve and we could not do that without the dedicated space for it in this drawer.We love the ice maker. It is so much more compact, taking less room than any we've ever had. We don't run out of ice even here in the hot desert, even with this smaller size. This ice maker is much easier to access if you just want a cup or two of ice but not dispensed into a glass. Past ice bins were a nightmare to remove, handle and get back in place. This one is like a dream to tilt open, access a small amount of ice or even to remove it to access the entire bin. Very impressed with the usability and convenient design of this feature.The extra tall ice and water dispensers are wonderful, a great improvement over "standard" size of the 1990s. The water filter is extremely easy to replace. But beware if you buy this model, Whirpool has changed the model number of the filter and you will not be able to find the model specified in the manual. Eventually I found the replacement model number but it was a hunt to do so.Probably the only thing I could complain about is the lack of shelving in the freezer. Lucky for us the refrigerator that broke down was also a Whirlpool of nearly the same size. When this one was delivered, I pulled out all the wire shelving in the old one before they took it away and set it aside. I was thinking about using them outdoors for pot shelves near a garden bench. Turned out those shelves nearly fit the new freezer and only had to have about 1/2" removed to fit securely into the freezer. Hubby did that with a hacksaw and sanded the cut edges so as not to scuff up the new interior. If we had not had these extra shelves, I am sure I would not have been happy with the few that come standard and I would have felt it necessary to buy additional shelving. I cannot imagine my freezer without those 2 extra shelves in place.Something I've noticed is the refrigerator door seems to "drag" at the hinge. That is it makes a sound like it is working extra hard to go through its range of motion. Not sure what that is about but I plan to call for service before our year warranty is up to make sure it's not a problem brewing. I also wonder if this is related to the door open alarm not being sensitive enough to catch an open door that is only open by 1/2" rather than by 3". I'm hopeful service from Whirlpool will resolve anything going on with the door.Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and cannot fathom going back to our older model now that I have this beauty in my kitchen.
THis product has really great features like the ice maker. I

My Whirpool Gold Energy Star Refrigerator is very handicapped accessable. My husband can reach all the shelves and manage to arrange the refrigerator as best fits his needs. It is also kid freindly. The kids are able to get their snacks without assistance. I would recommend this model because of the Energy Star---very cost effective for me. I would give this Refrigerator 3 Stars up!!!Priscilla
This product is a household staple.
We chose this refrigerator for the Whirlpool name. We have had much success with other Whirlpool appliances as well as refrigerator. We like our new refrigerator however we have had an issue with the ice maker as soon as we brought it home it broke however was easily fixed. Also the stainless steel outer surface is very difficult to keep clean. No matter what we do to keep it clean ad fingerprint free it doesn't work. However the rest of this product so far has been exceptional.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This refiigerator efficient apace
This size of my side-by-side refrigerator has plenty of space for my perishable food items. The freezer is not very large, but has enough room for my needs, as I am a single person. I would not recommend a side-by-side for a large family, however. The feature that I do not like is the ice maker, as it is loud when dropping ice.
This is a really great fridge. It is nice looking, roomy and pretty quiet. We've only had it about two months, but we are very happy.
This fidge was just OK
I thought the fridge was just OK. I didn't think the shelves were set up for the right heights. I found it difficult to change the shelves to heights that I found useful.
