I absolutely love this side by side refrigerator. It is so spacious. I have been able to easily store all of my extra food during the holiday season, including a holiday ham and turkey. When I was shopping for a new fridge, I was very reluctant to buy another side by side because the one I had prior had very little space. The ice maker engulfed the top third of the freezer. This Whirlpool side by side has a wonderful indoor ice system that does not cause you to lose any freezer space. There are also three pull-out bins in the fridge that make organizing quite simple.Another feature that I absolutely love is the sturdy construction of the adjustable racks on both sides and in the doors. There are no flimsy wire racks in this unit. Even the door racks are well-built and roomy. I easily store two gallons of milk in one door rack, with quite a bit of space left over for other items.This side by side is quite appealing. It has a very sleek, clean line that is perfect for a contemporary home. Yet, it incorporates flawlessly with my very traditional furnishings. It is classic and sophisticated. Even my kids love it. The in-door ice and water dispenser is a hit with my kids. I have never seen them drink so much water. The in-door filter is also great because I save quite a bit of money every month on bottled water.I highly recommend this Whirlpool side by side refrigerator to anyone who is searching for a high-quality, spacious, beautifully designed unit. It is absolutely the best purchase I have made for my home thus far.

This refrigerator was delivered and installed two days ago. After installer departure, closer inspection revealed a 1/8" gap in metal work on top of freezer door. It is both unsightly and, potentially, a health hazard. Whirlpool Quality Control should never have allowed this door to leave manufacturing! Have notified my vendor, who returned and inspected same, and has submitted a request for a replacement from Whirlpool. Other reviews have indicated problems with ice-maker: loud slow, inefficient, etc. My wife and I re the only occupants of our home, and the capacity if the ice-maker is adequate for our general needs. I imagine with a party we'd have to stockpile ice for a couple of days prior. That's the trade0ff for increased freezer capacity with the ice-maker in the door.As reported by others, the ice-maker tends to throw ice all over when dispensing. Not the best design! I'm at an age where I'm starting to lose some hearing...so I don't have a problem with the sound level. Neither does my wife who has excellent hearing. A major problem I have with this refrigerator is that it is identical to the Maytag MSB27C2XAW #Same specs, same price# except that the Maytag comes with a ten-year warranty on the compressor and the Whirlpool does not! One is left to speculate as to why.

works, but rusting stainless steel is continuing problem
Comments about Whirlpool 26.5 Cu Ft Stainless Refrigerator:
This fridge replaced one that, after 10 months, showed growing, significant rust on the exterior stainless steel. Now, there is rust starting already on the freezer door. This is really poor. I know Whirlpool doesn't cover cosmetic faults, but this is the SECOND fridge to rust out. First one took 2 months, this one a few months longer, but it is rusting. Bad stainless steel composition. The fridge cools as it should. Side by side style is easiest to get into and use. While noisy, the icemaker works well, doesn't jam and makes plenty of ice (the fast ice feature is helpful on hot summer days). We will look for other brands next time.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from Ada, OK
Purchased this product for our new home. We love the options available on it and how spacious it is. With a family of 6 we NEED space and options. The only issue we have had with the product is the icemaker. It makes ice but if you aren't constantly emptying the ice bucket inside the door - the ice freezes up and will not dispense. It's a HUGE hassle. Otherwise great product. Food stays cold & fresh as promised.

We bought this fridgerator about 5 months ago without having the option to see a floor model. Although I like alot of the features this comes with, the layout of the fridge is not very well planned out. I feel like we lack the space for larger bottles

Great purchase, love the storage
from Newton, MA, United States
I knew I wanted a side by side fridge since I am on the taller side, so leaning down to get things out of the freezer with a french door, or bending down to actually look in my fridge with a top-freezer were not going to be an option. I've never had an in-door ice/water dispenser, so that was new for us, but it is quiet and I'm never bothered by the ice maker. Also the touch screen aspect of it is really nice and will be easy to clean!I enjoy the storage and options to move things around inside the refrigerator. It is overall extremely quiet and easy to clean. The only slight downside is the butter/enclosed container that seems to rub a little when we open it - nothing major though! Highly recommended all around!

We really like our new side-by-side. The stainless steel exterior is easy to keep clean, the shelf arrangement is good in both the freezer and the refrigerator sides. I really love the water and ice in the door!
So far, so good

We did a lot of research and shopping around before we choose our new Whirpool refrigerator. So far we are very happy with our purchase. It has all the features we were looking for at a great price. The energy efficiency is also a great plus!
from Norwood, MO, United States
We got this side by side to replace a french door model which wasn't big enough. On the plus side, it's very roomy, with lots of door space on the fridge side and three crisper bins, is quiet (except when new ice cubes fall into the ice cube bin). The LED lighting is great. It's new, of course, but so far it keeps steady temps and I'm looking forward to lower energy bills. My design complaints are that I wish the rear motor cover had been made of metal (or at least a durable material). It was made of rather thin cardboard. Also, the ice maker is slow, even on the "fast ice" feature and I would have given it five stars if the shelf design allowed for greater adjustments (my old fridge used a bracket system allowing two inch incremental shelf adjustment which maximized efficient use of space depending on circumstances).
Great to look at and works great so far!
from Phoenix, AZ, United States
Just purchased a new home two months ago and we have this appliance in our home. Love the look. I love that the water maker is a little lower so the kids can reach it to fill up their cups and aren't reaching on their tippy toes. Only issue I had was to turn the temp of the fridge up to 40 degrees because some of the items in the fridge were getting frozen. Other than that, it works great and very easy to figure out the panel. Love it!
A lot of room!
from Maple Valley, WA, United States
About a month ago we purchased this refrigerator and we are so happy we did. When you buy a refrigerator it is not only a huge investment of your money, but you are also committing to a style/look for a very long time. This refrigerator is easy to clean, has all the features you need, and looks fabulous!
