My kids bought this side by side for my birthday about a month ago. My initial concern was that the inside would be too small for my large family. I was wrong. The fridge portion surprised me by having plenty of room for everything. The shelves are adjustable so you can configure it any way that makes sense for you. The freezer has much more room than my old standard fridge did. The lighting inside is perfect for seeing everything clearly right down to the bottom drawer and door shelves.The drawers are plastic and the bottom drawer will sometimes stick if you do not push it in evenly. The through the door water and ice is simply awesome. My old fridge was not equipped with one so I went to our local home improvement store and bought a kit that allowed me to hook it up under the kitchen sink, rather than through the floor from the basement pipes. It was as easy as 123 to hook it all up ourselves. The ice maker is a little noisy, not bad, but you can hear it moving the ice around. Cleaning the fridge is much much easier than my old stainless, the fingerprints wipe off with a soft damp cloth. The side by side black is beautiful to look at and compliments my kitchen perfectly. The front is smooth as glass and the sides are textured and black (some models have different color side panels)and I do not like a stainless front with black sides etc. It is all one color and I love that! True to size specs as we measured and re-measured and did it again just to be sure. I have not had to replace the water filter yet but it seems to cost about 50 dollars every time it needs changing, which manufacturer recommends every six months. With my large family it may have to be changed every 3 - 4 months. I will update my review after having to change the water filter. Overall, I am completely happy with this black side by side and would purchase it myself again.

We bought this fridge a month ago to replace an Amana we had for 16 years. The fridge is a good fridge, but has a few issues. The water in the dispenser is not cold at all. We had a tech out to look at. First glass 63 degrees, second 54 degrees, third glass 44 degrees, fourth glass 53 degrees. This was a disappointment over our Amana, from day one to the 16th year, we had cold water come out every time. When using the ice maker you do need to put the glass way up top close to the dispenser or ice shoots all over the front of and down the fridge. The water dispenser drips on occasion, so there will be a valve replaced on that because it drips down the fridge and onto the floor also. One more shelf included in the fridge and freezer would be very helpful. This whirlpool is a little short on shelving, and pricing is over $150 to get 2 shelves which I thought was outrageous. There have been a few times moisture has built up inside in the crisper drawer, but I dried it off and put the produce back in. Other than those items, it is not a bad fridge and serves a purpose. We were just disappointed in those items. We are wishing now we had just replaced the compressor in our 16 year old Amana that did not have any of those issues.

The side by side is too small. We bought the brand new house with the refrigerator installed. I can't fit much in the freezer, for example a large frozen pizza. The buttons for the water and ice dispenser are already worn and we have used it for about 4 months. Also the ice dispenser needs a different sized funnel, because when I put my glass up to get ice, the ice spews out not making it into the cup.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love our Whirlpool Refrigerator!
from Boise, ID
I bought this a month ago to replace our old standard fridge and I am so happy that I did. The biggest plus for us is the water filtration system and ice maker. It's been very reliable other than the refrigerator side door bounces a little when it's opened. Would definitely recommend this product for the price! Other comparable fridges run $300-400 more than what I paid for my Whirlpool.

Happy with my frig.
Best bang for your buck!

It's a great fridgerator. I love that the filter is easily removable from the front near the bottom, the filter doesn't take away from your top shelf like most refrigerators. The buttons on the front of the fridgerator for water and ice are flush and easy to push. Not to mention it dispenses the ice very fast so there is no wait. My absolute favorite thing about the fridgerator is the fact that it's all LED powered bulbs and lights. It has nearly the best energy efficiency rating out. Multiple spots for gallon jugs gives you use in many ways and also makes life easy when deciding between chocolate and white milk haha. In all fairness there is only one flaw with that I have found and that is I wish the freezer was a tad bit larger.
Nice Addition to our kitchen.
from Tampa, FL
It's a nice refrigerator; however, the stainless steel finish shows every finger print and it's not as roomy as the refrigerator that I replaced. The only thing wrong with my old refrigerator was that ice no longer dispensed from the door, but I have to say, that it is nice to have this feature again.

Bought this for our new townhome! Perfect for the space. Both freezer and refrigerator sides are roomy. Ice maker and water in the door are great features. Love this Refrigerator!!!

I bought this refrigerator to replace an old Kenmore side by side frig. The style is great, it does come in other colors, I selected chrome. The size is great, the shelves are practical and can be move up/down for larger/smaller items. I thought I would miss the dual water feature I had on my old Kenmore, but the single water system is great. What made this purchase even better was the price and free shipping. The delivery was the next day and my food went from one frig to the next. Thanks Whirlpool!
So far, so GOOD!
from The Villages, Florida
This was the refrigerator that came with our newly-built home. At first, I was disappointed with another side-by-side, but it turns out this one is quite roomy inside, both the refrigerator AND freezer side. Very happy with this product!

I just got the fridge and it looks wonderful with my other appliances. I was concerned as all the others are in black, but it was becoming too much and the stainless looks perfect.
