I am absolutely delighted to have this fridge in my new kitchen. It serves my every purpose. I can store vegetables and fruits in one seperate drawer so don;t have to open the entire frige to access it.
The freezer space is huge. It has lovely compartments to sort and keep items hardly used , more frequently used etc. The in door pizza storage is also great.
Delivery was a breeze. The personnel were professional , courteous and very mindful of our new home and the new fridge and installation was very quick. Thanks Whirlpool.

I purchased this fridge about two months ago. First problem from the time it was installed, the doors on top we're very uneven. It took two trips to get it adjusted. A million finger smudges later, spacers were installed. Still not 100% even. Then my freezer went thru the defrost cycle. I called out a warranty repair, The repair guy told me the issue is one of 4 issues this model has and nothing he can do. It will happen. So I spent a lot of $$ on this! Two weeks later, ice forms again. This time it's not unthawing. It's a loud fridge, makes noises all day. I wouldn't buy this fridge! My frozen food boxes are super soft. Very disapoionted. Freezer drawers are hard to open since the ice freezes them shut.

        We've had this fridge for a month and it's so cool! Guests are so impressed when they see it. It has a lot of room inside. Sliding shelf to fit tall items, super cute sliding bins that are perfect for cheese sticks, large separate snack drawer, sliding freezer drawers, and a handy pizza pocket! The in-door ice maker is out of the way too. This fridge is perfect for families.

        Good all-around refrigerator

              Sometimes there isn't a whole lot to say about a product and how it functions. It's a refrigerator - it keeps things cold.

              This one, though, does have a few features that stand out.

              First, it's very well lit in the refrigerator compartment and intermediate drawer. The frezzer also has a light, but it's not quite as effective as the other compartments.

              Second, the drawer slides are notably better quality than many other models. It also has nice, usable shelves and storage.

              Finally, going to a stainless steel refigerator had me a little concerned that every smudge and bit of dirt would show, but it's not bad at all.

              The biggest downside the single water/ice paddle - it gets a little annoying toggling between ice and water all the time. The other is that the door trays are a little fragile - one already cracked.

              Other than that, it's a nice unit that I hope to get many years of service from.

                    We bought this refrigerator earlier this month
                    and my wife is still thrilled with it. She loves the extra room and features in this
                    refrigerator.

                          Bought this fridge for a complete kitchen remodel. We have been in the home for 2 months and love the fridge. The freezer has a lot of storage room. The fridge also has great storage, but took a little getting use to the new layout and figuring out where to put things in comparison to side by side I have owned in the past. The ice maker/water dispenser is awesome. I love being able to select the "fill" oz for a larger container and NOT having to press the button the whole time.

                                      We just purchased this a month ago, and we have been very happy with it. We were reluctant to spend this much money on a fridge, but glad we did, the led lighting is bright, the space inside the fridge is more than adequate, the drink
                                      drawer is the hit, how did we live all this time without one? its is what gets used on
                                      the fridge the most. The ice/water dispenser
                                      is unique with the water measurer built in.
                                      Our previous fridge was a Whirlpool Gold series side by side, We had it for 12 years with minor issues, it still works great, now at a relatives house. That durability, is what promted us to buy Whirlpool again.

                                            When we first got our new refrigerator the ice maker did not work. After multiple attempts to fix it, Whirlpool graciously replaced it. Love it.

                                                        Bought this for the fantastic design.. especially in love with the 3 compartment freezer drawer, which keeps things so organized. Unexpectedly, the refrigerator drawer became an even bigger bonus. It will hold so much, and is viewable from the upper compartment, so you don't lose track of what you have in it. Love, love, love it. It's true when they say your friends will have Refrigerator Envy.. even men, who normally don't care, are awed by this refrigerator. Can't speak to durability, as I've only had this 3 weeks.. The only drawback for us, is that the icemaker is a bit slow, and has a hard time keeping up with our pool induced, constant entertaining.

                                                              only complaint is ice cube maker.every 2 weeks needs to be emptied and unit defrosted. in all fairness haven't found a decent unit yet. also,left french door needs to have right door closed after each use,to prevent flap from wearing out.other than these items,best fridge to date.
