I researched refrigerators for over a year & saved up for the one I wanted. GE or Whirlpool? Whirlpool had every feature I was looking for plus some, so I chose the Whirlpool® 29 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator and the unit was delivered in Jan '13. I'm beginning to regret my choice. I love the look, the space and the features, but... I noticed what I call "black ice" growing out of the seam on the rear wall where the ice maker meets the rear wall of the unit. I touched it and it was cold. I have always had condensation drips from the front of the ice maker at the door, but I could live with that. I contacted service and the tech came out and said my unit was not installed properly. The door were not aligned correctly, letting warm air in, thus condensation and "black ice. He made the door adjustments and told me to turn the unit off, leave the doors open for 8 hours and I should be good to go. Two weeks later, black ice is back, service is scheduled, again. Also, over time I began to notice the volume of noise the unit made. A refrigerator is one appliance we really don't hear, standing guard protecting our food silently in the background. My Whirlpool takes front & center stage telling everyone: "I'M MAKING ICE! or I'M RUNNING THE COMPRESSOR! I WANT TO BE NOTICED! This is the loudest refrigerator I've ever owned. Iâ€™m beginning to rethink my choice.

Okay, not great
from Lincoln, NE, United States
We bought this fridge about 7 weeks ago. The water dispenser isn't good for smaller cups/glasses. My kids often spill water because of there is too much distance between the actual water dispenser and button you press your glass against. We also have to take extra care to make sure the fridge doors shut completely, and if either door is open, the ice maker doesn't work. Overall, I'd say we'll probably get what we paid for since we selected a less expensive French door model.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comment on this review
from Denver, CO, United States
I agonized for a week looking at different models. Every review I read had an issue with something. Finally advice from a friend, buy the features you like and be done. I had a Kitchen Aid for 20 years, it was still running, but I wanted a stainless appliance. So far I love my Whirlpool. Lots of room, lighting is great and drawer freezer is roomy. The people complaining about the ice maker being loud are somewhat valid, however, I don't use my ice dispenser every 10 minutes. The water dispenser doesn't do well for a narrow opening glass. But that does not stop me from recommending this fridge. I am confident Whirlpool will stand behind their product. Any complaint about it being noisy, my response is I don't sleep in my kitchen. Good product, happy camper
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Vibration noise - loud when you open the freezer
from Richmond, VA, United States
It is over a year old and the compressor makes a vibration noise - which is very loud when I open the bottom freezer drawer. I am unable to get to the vibration - no accessible from the cardboard back panel. I wish I could get it repaired.

I bought it last month and the layout is very user friendly including the fold away shelf. Perishables last longer than other brands. But most of all it makes my wife happy. Life is great!!!

We bought the fridge last month and I love it it's the best
Just what I was looking for
from Twin Falls, Idaho
Bought this a few weeks ago and so far it's been great. Love the double doors and all the room! Especially love the temperature regulated drawer, measured fill feature and the soft ice!
Love the space, wish we'd gotten the double-drawer
We've had ours right at 6 months and so far we like it for the most part. Pros: - Space, love the amount of space and flexibility of configurations - Lighting, it's amazing, very bright nice not to have to change bulbs - Sound, seems pretty quiet in our small home with hard floors though every now and then for a few minutes the compressor does make a loud noise though it's not unbearable or anything - Temp, holds set temp perfectly in both fridge and freezer - No issues so far with freezer burn - Icemaker seems to make plenty of ice for our 3-adult home plus occasional company - Measured fill feature is nice but slightly gimmicky as it's only useful in a relative few situations - Ice/water dispenser area is deeper than on most units and reasonably tall though not tall enough for quart-sized or larger pitchers/containers - Filters are very easy to access and change Cons: - Finish is not the least bit smudge/fingerprint proof - Touch controls are very finicky and our control panel creaks when pressed - Fresh food/water filter performance degrades quickly after first month or two of installation and water filter is as or more expensive than a filter pitcher but doesn't perform as well, plus the fridge costs more with the dispenser - Both doors must be open all the way to open the pantry drawer - we quickly wished we had gotten the one with a dedicated drawer between the fridge and freezer sections even if it meant sacrificing a little bit of space to accommodate it - Frosted "no-spill" shelf edges don't contain spills as well as curved glass or plastic rimmed shelves - Water dispenser is far enough out in front that you have to hold down the push pad manually if filling small mouthed containers and water drips onto front of fridge - Tray under ice/water dispenser could stand to be slightly deeper for catching spills/drips - Ice/water dispenser will not work if either door is open - Due to height of dispenser area, if measured fill is used, water and ice can splash out of short containers very easily - We haven't found the center crisper drawer to be incredibly useful. It's not quite long enough for a bunch of celery though it's the perfect width/depth for it. Overall we're happy with it, especially since we got it for a great price on Labor Day weekend.
Whirlpool - 36-inch French Door Refrigerator
from San Antonio, TX, United States
We bought this fridge last month and are pleased with itâ€™s performance, looks and ease of use. We initially purchased an LG, but after nearly three weeks waiting on delivery we decided to buy an American made product, which was delivered in two weeks. Best decision and it was nearly one thousand dollars cheaper in price, but not in style or performance.
