I have had this refrigerator a week now and happy overall with it:Likes:* Plenty of storage capacity* Handle design feels great in your hand, no seams in the handle like the GE.* LED lighting inside, and gradually brightens after door is opened* Stainless Steel - exterior seems durableDislikes* Compressor has a buzzy noise quality to it that I don't care for. It's overall quieter than my old frig but it still bothers me somewhat. I am hoping I get use to it over time.* Ice/Bev Dispenser - has a cheap black plastic catch tray for extra water/ice. The Whirlpool 26 cu. ft.. Smart Frig. has a much nicer Stainless Tray. Would like to be able to upgrade my catch tray to SS somehow through an accessory part. Also the Ice/Bev dispenser has a white LED, their Smart Frig has a blue LED which looks cooler. I don't ever expect to use the smart controls of the 26 cu. ft. frig but I really liked the small styling details it offered but in the end the larger 30 cu. ft. capacity won out over design.* Ice/Bev - only has one dispenser port so you have to hit a button if you want ice or water. I would rather pay the extra $50 and have two ports if I could design my own ice maker.

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:
I bought this a month ago and I am so happy that I did. The ice cream was melting, there was fuzz on the spagetti sauce, and the ice maker had stopped. This was because the freon had leaked out of my old Admiral (which I am guessing was also made by Whirlpool) even though it was only 7 years old. So you can imagine how happy I was to get things back to normal. This fridge is indeed larger than the old one and I believe that it is the largest to be found in the conventional refrigerator line-up. It took a long while to get it as it was out-of-stock in a lot of local places. My objections are few. (1) You can't get parts because the model numbers are different everywhere you look and constantly changing. You can't call whirlpool because the on line help persons are brain dead. For example, the model numbers stamped on the parts are not the same as found in published lists. We were sent a front grill be the delivery company and what we received was a "pan-snack" for a different model fridge. (2) the positions of the shelves are not continuously adjustable so you have to accept what Whirlpool deems correct. (3) as usual for every refrigerator we looked at - there are one too few door bins and you have to buy an extra elsewhere. (4) there's a gimmicky screen for telling you about ice, water etc. that is sure to give us trouble some years down the road. But the ice cream is frozen once again and we have some extra room. I got a ten year warranty this time - so while it isn't going to last the 25 years of the one we have in the rental - it's working fine so far and we like it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Reliable Design and Functon
from Knoxville, TN
I'm enjoying my new refrigerator and outside door ice/water dispenser. Like the filtered water and getting ice w/o a lot of hassle. The LED lights are wonderful. So far so good with everything.

Bought this for my rental. Really took the kitchen to the next level. High tech, clean and bold. Very nice indeed.

We bought refrigerator several months ago. We are extremely happy with the purchase. The clear glass shelves are very practical and easy to clean. The refrigerator and freezer are very spacious and meet all our family needs.

Whirlpool 30 cu ft side-by-side refrigerator
from New Hartford, NY
I like the brightness of the lights inside the frig. I like the size and all the selves. The only think I'm alittle disappointed about is that the ice maker makes ice slow.
Good big refrigerator
from Glasgow KY
I have had my refrigerator almost a year now and I am well-pleased with it. It has performed well so far. I love the huge space inside and the features, the built-in filters for air and water, the in-door ice maker and the digital/solid state controls. The shelf and drawer layout is also very good.
Love the Space
I love it. It has lots of space. The water and ice dispenser are great. Layout inside works well for us. A couple of flaws: Refrigerator side next to freezer gets very cold and I have to be careful which foods I put there. Stainless hard to clean. Bins could be better quality. So far I am willing to overlook the flaws because of the space. Great purchase so far. We were originally going to get a freezer for the basement. With this side by side no need. Looks great in our kitchen and am very pleased with our purchase. Whirlpool also made the transaction smooth and the delivery was good.
Nice fridge - could have better ice maker
from Anderson SC
I really like the freezer section on my new fridge.
I love the clear shelves and drawers and the lighting throughtout that makes the contents of every shelf and drawer of the refrigerator visible from top to bottom.Nearly 30 cf of space gives me plenty of room for storage.Glass shevles in the freezer are another nice feature.The only thing I would change is the single digital button that is shared by the cubed ice and crushed iced with the water. not as user-friendly as would be if the water had a separate button.
