I have had this fridge for a few months and it has worked perfectly. The stainless/black model is very attractive and modern looking, but isn't obnoxious looking even in an older style home. The interior layout is very functional, with a decent amount of door space for large drink containers (milk, soda, juice, etc) and condiments. In switching over from a larger fridge to this one, I did have to slim down on the number of condiments I had.. Though, there really is no good reason to have 6 different kinds of mustard! The freezer is pretty shallow, but surprisingly tall. It came with one small shelf that only spans 1/2 of the freezer and gives about 5" underneath it. I have it organized so that I can stack things that are in boxes on one side (without the shelf), and use the under-shelf area for my ice cube trays/ice bin. The freezer door holds all of my non-boxed items.I purchased this fridge for my older home that had limited kitchen space. I stuck this fridge in a closet area, with the closet door removed and the proper amount of space above/behind/around it. It has been performing well, with no functional issues. The cold adjustment has a wide range of temperatures, and it took me a few days to get it dialed in perfectly.The only issues I've had with this fridge is that the door is very thick (like all newer style fridges), so I need to keep the fridge out past the wall where it is recessed about 3". This looked awkward at first, as I thought I would be able to keep the fridge flush with the closet trim, but I am over it and no one else has noticed. I would have noticed this if my local store had the fridge in stock, and would have decided to get the fridge anyway because there is no way around it.The fridge is also reasonably loud. I like to sleep with my bedroom door open, which is right off of the kitchen about 10ft from the fridge. I can hear this fridge start up much better/louder than the other fridge I had. Maybe it is because it is in a closet and the sound echos, or maybe it is just a louder fridge. This is not a deal breaker for me, and most people probably wouldn't even notice. I only notice it at night when everything is quiet and I'm falling asleep.My only question to Whirlpool and other companies that make skinny fridges is: Why do you make them so short? I could easily see this fridge with another foot above it being MUCH more desirable to people looking for a skinny fridge. This fridge has the most capacity of any 'skinny' fridge I could find, and while it suits my needs (2 person apartment), I would have liked more capacity in the same width fridge. In my research looking for a skinny fridge, I saw lots of pictures of people using these fridges between cabinets in their small kitchens. All of the pictures I saw had at least a foot gap between the fridge top and the cabinets, or had no height restriction at all (nothing above the fridge).

IN attempting to swap the doors, from right hing to left, the bottom large footed hole was NOT threaded.I searched customer comments on major retailer web sites from two more reviewers in other locations with the exact same problem.This is a real bummer, because the delivery driver had to take my beautifully designed Whirlpool Refrigerator all the way back to the NJ warehouse and leaving me with my 25 year old 24 inch wide Whirlpool which thank goodness is still working in my newly remodeled NYC kitchen.

LOOKS GR8t---WORX GR8T !!!
from ABQ NM
Comments about Whirlpool White Top Freezer Refrigerator:
For this apt/dorm/ofc size (9.7-11cu ft) there is no fridge in the marketplace that can compare with the interior & doors functionality & convenience or the insulation thickness of doors & cabinet. Also, no competitor in this size group offers the icemaker option.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Basic workhouse frig
Big Enuf, Small Enuf
from Lebanon, Missouri 65536
Very happy with this unit! Coils are on the back of refer, so don't have to try to clean them under the cooler section. Only one area that's less than wonderful: the freezer has what appears to be shelf slide on each side but no shelf was included or seemingly available.

Use recommended settings
from Washington, DC
This is a decent refridgerator, though the freezer is not as effective as we had hoped. We had real difficulties getting the refridgerator and freezer to balance out - either the freezer would work well or the refridgerator would work and the freezer wouldn't freeze. If we adjusted the temperature too low, the air flow vent in the freezer would frost/freeze solid which didn't allow cold air to enter the refridgerator. We lost quite a bit of food two different times due to this issue and the spoilage it caused. Eventually we had to take everything out, defrost the refridgerator with a hairdryer and start over. We found success by leaving all the dials on the "recommended settings." We found that using the recommended settings was the only way to make the refridgerator/freezer work. Unfortunately we can't adjust the temperature lower without completely freezing up the airflow unit, which causes the refridgerator not to work.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

When we got the refrigerator we asked where the freezer shelf was and the dealer said they would check on it. I didn't hear anything, after a couple of weeks, so I checked on it myself. The freezer has shelf supports but there is not a shelf available, so with items piled in, you need to watch out when you open the door.Also this was our 1st Stainless Steel appliance and diffinatly our last. I clean and polish it and after a week its full of hand prints.
1/2 Wire Freezer Shelf (ridiculous!)
from New York, NY
There is only 1/2 of a WIRE FREEZER SHELF (poss. for optional ice-maker). Whatever the case, it is UNACCEPTABLE for those of us NOT getting an ice-maker, to NOT be able to purchase a FULL-LENGTH shelf! I've researched this issue thoroughly (called Whirlpool Parts Dept & other Parts Depts) & we can NOT purchase FULL LENGTH freezer shelf for this model. VERY dissatisfied with Whirlpool Customer Service. This issue is incredibly easy to rectify (prob. $20-30 part), yet I continue to see same complaint over dozens of Message Boards. PLEASE REMEDY THIS SITUATION! (FYI refrigerator is 10.8 cu ft, not 11.0)

This is the perfect refrigerator for our new RV.It is equipped with an automatic ice maker and plenty of door space as well. The freezer is deceivingly spacious and efficient. Easy to clean and perfect for a weekend away or a month long vacation.
Great garage frig

bought this 2 weeks ago and love the size for our garage for beverages and extras as needed.

I love my new space saver Whirlpool refrigerator! This refrigerator was purchased for the "over flow" of food and beverages. I have limited space in my garage so this is the perfect size! I find the freezer, although small, to be more than adequate for my needs. Overall, one of the best purchases I have made when it comes to appliances
from Olathe, KS, United States
Great to see a residential refrigator in a rv good job
