We had a high end refrigerator with all the bells and whistles. It was a maintenance nightmare. The repair costs were high and we lost food on two occasions. This was the fridge we chose to replace it. Installation: Did it myself. Had it delivered to the house than I took the doors off (15 minutes) and move it inside using a borrowed hand truck. Reassembled the unit (1/2 hour) connected the water line and we were in business. There were a few tricky steps in the disassembly/reassembly process but the owners manual outlined the process very well. I was never at a loss. Size: We have a very specific area that the refrigerator needed to fit. We also wanted one that was slightly less deep. This fit the space EXACTLY. Use: The ice container is not huge so if you are having a party you should plan on buying a bag of ice. For day to day ice needs it is perfect. Unlike my old machine this ice machine feeds from the bottom out the chute. This results in less OLD ice accumulating in the bin. The speed of restocking ice is fine. The button for selecting ice versus water has a slight delay. At first it is slightly annoying but now that I have use it for awhile it is fine. Also when you push the ice dispenser lever there is a slight delay. Again, no big deal. The layout of the freezer is fine. Nothing outstanding or problematic. It is simple and does the job well. Refrigerator side is nicely thought out. I love the lighting. LED lights that totally illuminate the interior. The two filter are easily accessible. The meat and vegetation drawers are fairly large and have sliders that allow you to customize the environment in each drawer. We eat tons of vegetables and fruit and find that this refrigerator keeps them fresh much longer than our old machine. All the interior parts easily remove for cleaning. Exterior of the fridge also cleans easily. Noise: Never hear it run. Occasionally Ice maker clunk as it drops ice into the bin. Overall, I really like this refrigerator. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a very nice middle of the road refrigerator. I am so impressed that we are considering replacing our BOSCH front loader washing machine with a top loading whirlpool.

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.

Comments about Whirlpool 26.5 Cu Ft Stainless Refrigerator:
Great Fridge! Very happy with it overall. The outside of it looks great when clean but keeping it finger print clean is impossible. I think I would have gone with a different outside finish had I known. We don't have kids but it still gets dirty quickly.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is the best refrigerator I have ever purchased. The features are the absolute best. No other appliance compares to Whirlpool. I would recommend their appliances. You will absolutely love them :)
Beautiful sleak look and love the soft toned lights inside

I bought this while remodeling my kitchen a few months ago and it looks great and works great. Tons of space and love the ice maker on the door to free up space in the freezer
from Honolulu, HI, United States
It has been about two months since my new refrigerator was delivered. Love the look, runs very quiet, exactly what I wanted. Best thing...ice maker is on the door, not in the freezer, love this feature.

Great unit, except for ice maker
from Surprise, AZ, United States
We have owned this unit for a few months and are very happy with most of the refrigerator, including exterior, controls and shelving. The only bad comments are regarding the icemaker, which is entirely inadequate in terms of speed of making ice and ice capacity. We have to buy ice from the store and keep in the refrigerator, which takes up space we thought we could save with the in-door icemaker that this unit has. One other comment: there is no drain bin under the water dispenser and I have to be very careful not to spill water when filling my glass. Most units, I believe have a grated bin to catch overspill.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Nice look - good features

Lighting in freezer could be brighter. Storage drawers are a nice size but lowest crisper drawer is hard to reach. Wished there were more shelving options. Nice storage space inside of door. Water and ice work well.
Interior space well configured
from Aiken, SC, United States
I like the side-by-side model as items are easy to access in both the freezer and fridge. This model offers great energy efficiency and operates quality. Only negative is the ice/water through the door. Ice gets caught in the dispensing mechanisms and falls out as it melts. Also, the overflow cup at the bottom of the mechanism is flat, so any drips or spillage ends up on the floor. I would love to see this redesigned so I could get a replacement part. Other than that small thing, I am EXREMELY happy with this refrigerator.

I bought this two weeks ago and I could not be more satisfied. It has so much light inside and you can see everything on the shelves as well as the doors.
