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. I’m beginning to rethink my choice.

Wonderful configuration.

By Twins fan

from Vero Beach, FL

We were forced to buy a refrigerator in about ten minutes and have never spent so much money in so few minutes. I love the French doors with the freezer drawer at the bottom. It is much easier to find items in the top than in a side by side. Frozen items don't fall on your toes either. I would definitely recommend it. However, after only six months of minimal use our winter home) it is telling us we should change the filter which seems like a short life span.

great refridgerator for the most part

By julieb1998

from sarasota, fl

we love the extra storage space the French door model provides. cons: we HATE the ice/water dispenser. they tried to make it fancy and digital and it doesn't work as well as more basic versions. the water doesn't have good aim, kinda hard to fill up kids cups and also water bottles. there isn't a tray underneath that will actually catch the water, you have to constantly keep wiping the drips away with a towel. another con is there is one huge meat/cheese drawer so you always have to open both French doors to get to that. they should have just made two smaller drawers like they did with the fruit/veggie drawers.

Good Concept

By Kglaser

from Des Moines, IA, United States

Bought it just before Easter and the outside of the ice maker started freezing over. There is also ice build-up around the opening the ice comes out. The repair tech took one look and said that he has seen this problem before. Not enough insulation. Whirlpool makes a kit to replace the original insulation. Kit was installed and within a week the same problem developed. The tech was going to attempt a second repair but to my surprise the store called yesterday and told me that Whirlpool is exchanging the fridge. If not for the ice maker problem I would give it 4 stars. It is a little noisy.

Piece of junk

By Angry woman

from Parish,NY

I bought this appliance in dec. 2013. It started to build ice inside the upper left rear about 2 weeks after it arrived. I have had the repair people out 2 and then they refused to come a third time. I have another company coming on Monday. I am also having a problem with little rust spots on the doors. I have other stainless appliances and have no problems. Of course, no magnets stick to my other appliances and they do to this refrigerator. Strange since stainless is not magnetic!

Happiness is Flexible Capacity

Can't believe how much room I have in the refrigerator when I need it. No more trying to figure out where to store things when I'm having company.

Keeps food cold!

By JanetG17

from Flower Mound, TX, United States

The refrigerator is clean, sleek and spacious. The ice bucket is easy to remove and replace. The freezer compartment if functional. The only downside has been when the hum of the motor is strong when the refrigerator cycles.

I brought it about a month ago and I find it a little noisy. I really do like the space and features. Also the finish (black) shows the finger prints.

By Fly guy

from Undisclosed

We love our new refrigerator but, we love our customer service even more!! As I understand, this is a new design and we had a minor problem that was handled by replacing it with another new refrigerator. Awesome support from Whirlpool!
