    The good: First of all, this fridge looks really good. We have the Black Ice style, which is glossy black with brushed steel appointments. Very sharp, and it has a striking visual appeal with all of its matching counterparts in our kitchen. The fridge functions very well. It was easy to set up, and we've been running it on all of the default settings for a few months now with great results. Filters are easy to install/change, and it keeps a stable temperature with no hassles. The not so good: The noise factor. Since the ice maker and all of it's mechanical components are in the door, the cabinetry around the fridge doesn't provide any soundproofing like it would with a fridge that has the ice maker in the main freezer. The result is a pretty darn noisy process of pumping water to the maker and dropping cubes into the ice bin inside the freezer. Ice capacity. The freezer door doesn't have enough space for a larger ice bin, so this one is pretty small. If you have friends over for an evening of iced beverages, it would be wise to have a bag of ice on hand. There is the handy "fast ice" setting, where it lowers the freezer temperature for 24 hours so it can make ice faster. Even with that engaged, it doesn't take much to exceed the pace of ice production with just a few people dispensing regularly. Top shelf obstacle. In the refrigerator section, the top shelf is partially obstructed by the light housing. This makes it difficult to store tall things on the top shelf unless you lower it a notch and make it a super-tall shelf. Freezer light cover. The piece of plastic that covers the light in the freezer section doesn't quite fit right. It keeps falling off and is being stubborn about fitting into the slots that are supposed to secure it to the back of the freezer interior. Overall: Other than the few annoyances I listed above, I really like this fridge. It's appearance is the main selling point, as well as its performance and ease of use.

    We were very excited to receive this new model in "White Ice." Unfortunately, the water dispenser is very weak and the warranty department wants to charge us if they are unable to find as issue with the dispenser. We have plenty of pressure, but it literally takes 10+ seconds to fill an 8 oz glass. The Whirlpool in our rental house that is 8+ years old has 3-4X the water pressure! The fridge side feels tighter than our old one even though the size is about the same. It is also very loud and seems to have much longer run cycles than any fridge we have owned. We also are having issues with products freezing on the top two shelves. If we turn the temp down to keep items from freezing, the rest of the fridge does not seem quite cold enough. The dispenser panel is nice, clean, and modern. Overall, I would have thought by now Whirlpool could get it right. It is not a good time to go backward with engineering and design with foreign manufacturers working hard to overtake U.S. makers. Unfortunately, we are also disappointed with our dishwasher and range from the same suite of products.

        We are very pleased with our new white ice Whirlpool refrigerator! It matches our older white appliances but it also has an updated look. It is well lit in the inside and the see through solid shelving allows us to see items from the top of the refrigerator down to the bottom. The shelving on the doors works perfectly to store frequently used items of all different sizes.

            noisy when dumping ice and when filling ice maker with water. Overall a great product with plenty of room. It takes some thought on placing the shelves as few can be placed with high clearances.

                    I love my new whirlpool double door refrigerator in white ice! It's functional & looks great in the kitchen. Long gone are the days of opening the refrigerator door and staring into the black hole. The lighting is incredible. It's like going to a light show every time you open the fridge door. You may be thinking...it's just a fridge, but it's really so much more than that. It's an appliance that will last for years to come and it's one of the most important investments you make in your home so you might as well invest in a good one and the whirlpool is top notch!

                      The refrigerator is very noisy, ice maker cannot keep family of 3 in ice for a day even on fast ice setting, water through the door is not even cool and is extremely slow to dispense. The interior light is in a bad location, the door pops and squeaks when opened. There is not enough adjusting capabilities for the shelving. Like the filter accessibility and the lock feature.

                              Enjoying our new refrigerator. Love the configuration of the shelving and drawers, makes finds any item easy. Love that the milk carton fit on the door and that all of the door shelves are deep..allows me to store sauces and find them with ease. Only complaint is that there were not enough shelves in the freezer area and we had to order additional ones.

                                  We have had our refrigerator for two months .We wanted a better look than just white appliances to contrast with our almond kitchen cabinets. The white ice has such a rich look with the metal alloy handles, no fingerprints show on the exterior. IIt runs quietly and infrequently. The ice maker has worked very well.
