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.

Water and Ice... Very Nice
from Grand Forks, BC, Canada
What we noticed first was the programmable water dispenser. For instance, you can program the fridge to dispense 11 ounces into your glass, put toast into the toaster then come back and grab your water. Handy for adding specific amounts of water for recipes etc. no measuring cup required! We ended up removing the built in water filter since we have our drinking water filtered to the fridge and kitchen sink already. We had our eye on this french door unit before we started our renovations. To accommodate this fridge seamlessly with the counters and cabinets we extended the wall behind the fridge another 6 inches. Now we need to organize the fridge more efficiently, it's so huge that we just end up putting items in without thinking then we don't know which door to open to find what we need. The bottom freezer holds a lot of food as well. My beer fridge is now obsolete as the extra fridge and freezer volume takes care of additional item stored previously. I guess I'll have to exercise more since my usual walk is now shorter!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The only problem I have, is that the filters last sometimes five months and most of the time only two months and the ice is slow to make

We have had this Whirpool product for about two months now and couldn't be more pleased. We replaced all our appliances with Whirlpool products and have been extremely pleased this far.
from Seattle, Washinton
I bought a Whirlpool Model WRF989SDAM00 in November 2012. The appliance quit working in August 2013 (not cooling or freezing properly) and it took a month for repairs to be made under manufacturer's warranty. Based on this experience I purchased an extended warranty. The appliance quit cooling or freezing properly again in July 2014. A repair was attempted (fan motor replaced) without success in early August. In addition the icemaker now has quit working altogether. One repairman said the refrigerant probably needed to be recharged. Another repairman ran a diagnostics check and determined the appliance needed a new evaporator, which should be installed tomorrow. I have used Whirlpool appliances for more than 40 years and generally have found them to be reliable. This one, however, appears to be a lemon. If it were the first Whirlpool appliance I had purchased it would also have been the last. I posted an earlier negative review that was removed by Whirlpool because I apparently posted it under the wrong model number.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

beautiful but not well made
from Delaware, OH, United States
we have had this for 3 months now and the seal is coming undone and the doors don't close very well the left door sticks out a little more so it looks like it is not closed all the time. tried 4 times to put picture in
Worst refigerator ever.... Looks nice but.....
from Monroe, GA, United States
We purchased this refrigerator in the black ice color and had the first one delivered in June 2014, it can in all dented up. 2nd one was delivered and it was dented also, ice was building up in the freezer, 3rd one was delivered..... it had ice building up in the freezer and the deli drawer wouldn't stay closed, it would be open every time you opened the doors. We have had several attempts at bringing out the same refrigerator, to no avail and all with the same issues as previously mentioned. We didn't realize we would have these issues with Whirlpool, as in our last home that was all we had. Needless to say, we have contacted our retailer and have selected a different manufacturer in refrigerators, as the luck we were having, we didn't feel it was worth even trying a different model.
Good features but too noisey.
Bought 3 months ago based on design and size, but disappointed on the noise level. Also bought the electric range and dishwasher which seem OK
Wonderful features on our new French Door Refrigerator!
By Robert B
from Byron, MN, United States
We had a fairly new freezer/refrigerator side by side. It was OK but my wife started a new diet with her eating lots of vegetables and fruit and we never had enough room for everything. I got tired of trying to find things in the refrigerator and when we had company we never had enough room for all our cold salads and dishes. We purchased the new Whirlpool French Door Refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom and we absolutely love everything about our new refrigerator! We never run out of room and the bottom freezer is so roomy and easy to find our frozen foods. Just love the compartments on the top shelf as so convenient for storing frozen food in boxes. The many compartments with humidity controls in the refrigerator are fantastic and we love the meat and cheese compartment. Best appliance purchase we have every made by far! An A++++ to Whirlpool for a wonderful design.
Looks are not everything
from Fontana, CA, United States
I purchased this fridge 12 months ago. It replaced another Whirlpool fridge we had for over 15 years. This fridge looks really nice and complements our kitchen quite well but that's where compliments ends. the Fridge does not make and hold enough ice. It does not dispense enough chilled water. The ice maker leaked after 8 months but service came out and replaced the gasket. Today's fridges are not build the same as they were 15 years age.
Nothing but noise, ice build up, freezer coil icing over, and rust.
This refrigerator has been a nightmare. Nothing but noise, ice build up, freezer coil icing over, and rust. Now I am researching on the best way to fix and salvage it. Only 1.5 years old. Been like this almost from day one.
