I've had this fridge for about a month. Like the other reviews said it needs another shelf in the door. I was replacing a whirlpool fridge so I just took one of those shelves out and used it in the bottom, and good to go for that one. (You can also order an extra shelf if you wish) However if you have a large family and drink iced sweet tea or other iced drinks, be aware it does not make much ice at all. You would need a second source of ice if that is the case. I have a second fridge in my utility room with an ice maker as well which makes much more ice and larger cubes than the newer one. But other than those two things, it has been a really great fridge. It holds sooo much food and keeps the food very well and when you live where there is quite a drive to get groceries or have a large family perfect!!! Overall so far I REALLY like this fridge better than any that we have owned. The lighting is exceptional, the quality (which is hard to find these days) is really good. And thanks so much for getting that water filter off the floor and easier to change every 6 months!!!! LOVING the new air freshner, YAY!! The sound is no more or no less than any other fridge I have ever owned, its fine. I would have given this fridge 5 stars all the way except for needing another shelf in the door and not making enough ice. And last but not least, function is great, but this fridge Looks so Good, it is a great addition to your kitchen. Since we seem to be in there so much that is really a plus too.

I am hard pressed to give this "cavernous" Whirlpool fridge more than an average rating. For the price paid it should be a whole lot better equipped than it actually is. The compressor and motor do get quite noisy when it kicks in, again, for a top notch unit that is a no-no. It is a no frills unit as far as the latest bells and whistle you see on many other models in a similar price range. No vegetable crisper or moisture control and so on. It appears like Whirlpool traded off the big size over the "fancier" freatures to keep the price in check. It does have LED illumination which lights up the unit's interior nicely, however all the lights are in the front so the back is not so brightly lit. As far as cooling goes, it either is too cold or not cold enough. If set at 37 degrees as the manual suggests some items start to freeze, if set below that then water, milk and juices do not feel as cold. The ice and water dispenser on the freezer door is a complete fiasco as far as I am concerned. The water nozzle sits way out in front so more often than not water spills all over the place. I have also noticed a bit of frost forming around the interior ice maker sides and freezer shelves. The ice cubes from the ice maker are real small, but we actually learned to like them that way, it almost eliminates the need to use the crushed ice feature. The ice maker so far does produce ice in sufficient and steady quantity. My wife does love the tremendous amount of interior space in both the freezer and fridge compartments as compared to our previous (non Whirlpool) counter depth fridge which came with our newly built home 6 years ago, that one she still hates to this day. Only time will tell how good this unit turns out to be. Our last Whirpool fridge was over 15 years old and still going strong when we sold our house way back then. Something tells this new one is not going to be that kind of performer. But then again, everything nowadays feel and seem to be "disposable" after just a few years of service.

Comments about Whirlpool Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side-By-Side Refrigerator:
We have had our Whirlpool fridge for about 2 months. I research pretty thoroughly before I make big purchases. I checked several stores online for customer reviews as well as Consumer Report. This fridge had me at 30 cu feet. We love it! It is huge and with 5 kids I need huge. There were other complaints about the ice maker being small but we have not found that to be a problem. Everything works great and it looks great very happy with the purchase!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this refrigerator a month ago to replace a 6 1/2 year old Whirlpool Gold 25 Cu. Ft. that could not be repaired. Not happy about that but thankfully I had purchased the extended warranty and that helped with the new purchase. I decided on the 30 Cu. Ft. even though I really didn't need extra space because the exterior dimensions were the same as the 25 Cu. Ft. It is very spacious inside. It is a very attractive refrigerator and so far is working well. It is well lit inside. I do have a few minor complaints with it though. The drawers are a bit loud and seem bumpy when you open and close them. Not as smooth as the old one. The water filter is in the refrigerator side instead of the freezer side and it is not nearly as cold as it should be, especially if you just want a small amount of water. I saw that others complained about the size of the ice cubes and they are small, but it hasn't been a problem for our family. It makes plenty of ice. The stainless steel is a bit of pain to get and keep streak free.
Positives about our new refrigerator.
from Lynch Station, VA, United States
Like all of the features. Ice tray in door gives more room in freezer. Water and ice dispenser taller allowing larger glasses as well as bowl for larger quantity.. Clear baskets so can see contents without openings. Adjustable shelves. Runs very quiet I Guess can tell we like it.
Great size, but needs fast fill and 2 pads
from Charlotte, NC, United States
I've had this for a few months now, which replaced a 30cu ft.Whirlpool that died after 18 months and was out of warrantee. I hope to have better luck with this one, but it is already making lots of groaning noises, like my parents 15yo fridge. The size is fantastic, but that is about it. It needs a separate ice and water pad - it drives everyone crazy and guests always make a mess. Also, it needs to get with the times and have a Fast Fill water dispenser. It takes well over a minute to fill a 1L bottle. It feels like 10 minutes when you are the one standing there.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Do not get the black ice!
We purchased the refrigerator after ours stopped working, it works great. My problem is with the black ice finish. Simply moving a magnet causes scratches to it. I was very disappointed about this I can only imagine what the stove looks like after a cleaning.
Everything is great except the noise!
I read the reviews about this unit and it's smaller version having a very loud icemaker and being loud in general. I didn't pay attention because I know all icemakers in the door are loud (and this one is but I expected it... it's in the door!). I shouldn't have ignored the complaints about the loud motor vibration sound, especially when it kicks on. This unit is VERY loud. If noise bothers you, this is a bad choice. Otherwise, perfect.
Best Refrigerator Ever!
from Hampton, GA, United States
We had put off buying a new refrigerator for over a year. Our old refrigerator, also a Whirlpool, just refused to die, even though it was over 25 years old. We had plenty of time to look at all the models and features. We decided on the Whirlpool 30 cu.ft. side-by-side for several reasons: the roominess, the clearly visible drawers, the bright lighting, storage in the door, the water/ice in the freezer door, and the quality of the Whirlpool brand. (I really like getting crushed ice!) We have not been disappointed!! The ease of accessing things in our fridge is great. It was a great deal, too! We're very satisfied, longtime Whirlpool customers!

I bought this refrigerator eight months ago and I'm very happy with it
LOTS of Room in the Refrigerator !
from Franklin, TN, United States
This is a wonderfully roomy refrigerator - only 2 inches larger on the outside, but SO much more room on the inside ! Keeps Produce fresher than any I have ever had. Shelving is convenient and easy to change when needed. Freezer is amazingly easy to get into and rearrange. Love this one !
