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.

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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

Plenty of room, outside the door measured water (perfect to fill 1.0L bottles effortlessly), and high reliability. Internal LED lighting makes for easy finding, and its easy on the eyes as it dimms up. Overall, a thoughtful and easy to use design. A++
Looks great, but parts are RUSTING
from East Lansing, MI, United States
I bought this refrigerator a year and a half ago. The ice-maker auger assembly unit is RUSTING (see picture).
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
2nd time was the charm
from Overland Park, KS, United States
We purchased the Whirlpool Refrigerator from Home Depot. The unit was delivered on-time and undamaged - Yay! Unfortunately, the freezer portion never worked. The unit was replaced with a totally new refrigerator one week later. It was a little inconvenient not to have a freezer for a week, but all is well now.

The lighting is great. The shelving design is great with lots of storage. The ice maker is good. The bad feature is the noise that the refrigerator makes. Our previous model a Samsung, was very quiet, did not know when it was running.
Constant issues with freezer and microwave.
from Evansville, IN, United States
While this fridge provides a ton of space and flexibility with shelving, we've had issues from the beginning with it. To the point to where, Whirlpool replaced the whole fridge with a newer model. The freezer had froze over, to where we had to thaw it out a couple of times to resolve the noise of the compressor. The ice maker slowed down on the making of ice until we replaced several parts. Started working again for a week or so then stopped all together. Whirlpool sent out a tech, to replace the same parts. At that point, they ended up just replacing the whole frige with a new model. While the ice maker works, we have not been impressed with this model at all.
Pretty & Convient BUT the water and ice dont work if the door is open.

NO ONE IN MY HOUSE EVER REMEBERS TO SHUT THE FRIDGE DOOR! after about 1 mintune the fridge will beep repeadlidy until the door is shut ! Im sure this feature has saved me $$$$ HUNDREDS
Love my frig!
By veggie lover
from Florida, United States
My frig went out Thanksgiving weekend, and although I had bisque, I decided to make a change. I wanted a frig made in America. I particularly like the temperature controlled meat drawer. Meat keeps so long, longer than expiration date. The milk is cold. The vegetable and fruit drawers take up a good portion of the frig. My favorite foods are fresh vegetables and fruits, so the drawers are full. Mostly, though, I like not having to lean over all the time. I use the freezer. I just don't use it as often as the fresh food sections. I like the configuration of the shelving. Everything fits and is easy to reach. I was surprised by how much the freezer portion holds and how easy it is to fill it and use it. I hated my stainless before (the reason I purchased bisque the next time), but the product I am using on this frig is good. Smudges aren't so prominent and remove with ease.
