I had just bought a DIFFERENT whirlpool frig last year. From the start we had problems with the shelves not fitting on the ledges in the frig, freezing veggies in the frig and melting ice-cream in the freezer, the black plastic trim on the bottom never fit well and would fall off all the time if you stepped on it or bumped it. That frig was a top freezer model. We had local repair men come out to the house who said the temperature readings were within normal. (go figureâ€¦really?) but the large meat drawer was replaced twice and the shelves always slid around on seemingly too small ledges which were not strong enough to hold up such dependent shelves. Anyway, I was shocked and elated when the local store called on our behalf to whirlpool. Whirlpool said they would replace the frig. Since I wanted to stay away from all those bad features (full length meat drawer, weird sliding shelf that supposedly makes room for tall items but only really slides at the wrong times, poorly designed shelves, bad temp control) I decided to go with a completely different style. I took a huge risk because there was only one review of this item ANYWHERE. I could not read any other feedback despite my attempts at looking on tons of websites. I was relieved and happy when the frig arrived. Much more solid frame, plastic foot shelf that extends across the bottom of the refrigerator was strong, shelves that are strong and don't slide around, well controlled temperatures everywhere, and very spacious. I am so happy with Whirlpool that they gave me another frig. Very impressive customer service! I gave the FEATURES a 4/5 because the shelves in the freezer cannot be moved and there is only one humidity gage for the veggie and fruit drawer. I had to dock it somewhere otherwise you may think that it is perfect! (which it seems like now but Im sure it will have its ups and downs). (PS. I did not want an ice dispenser on the door because I read on other reviews of other products that sometimes the ice just shoots out. I thought I would avoid the whole issue and just bought the accessory ice maker to be installed later. I also did not want to get drinking water from the frig because we have already paid for an expensive reverse osmosis system connected to our kitchen sink.) Basically, this frig is much more sturdy and well made. Clear plastic drawers may be a bit flimsy but time will tell. Believe me, this is light years away from the frig we had before. And the stainless steel is beautiful, so is the LED lighting inside!

We bought the refrigerator to replace an old Hot Point that failed after 20+ years. Our new Whirlpool is doing a good job. It cools nicely, has enough room for the needs of my wife and I. The first Whirlpool unit that was delivered had some handling damage on the rear of the unit, and the black gloss paint finish on the top right corner of door was foggy. Our distributor repair man recommended replacement since he couldn't know if internal insulation might have been damaged with the handling damage. The replacement Whirlpool refrigerator unit we received was okay except it had a "ding" in the door which was noticeable. Again, our distributor offered monetary compensation, or a new door. We selected a new door. It has not arrived yet. The refrigerator works great. We are quite pleased with it. Only the handling issues that occur somewhere between the factory and our house were concerning. Thanks!

Perfect fit and function

Comments about Whirlpool 22 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Stainless Refrigerator:
Bought this fridge for my mom about 2 months ago. Was a little tough finding one that would fit the space in our 1980's home. She's always had the traditional top freezer/bottom refrigerator units and we had already remodeled the kitchen so we decided to go with the side by side version. All I can say is WOW! I bought it based on photo's since no display model was available. The fridge is sleek, quiet, spacious and well lit with LEDs. I couldn't be happier and my mom loves it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Exactly what I needed
from Park City, UT, United States
I needed a shorter fridge to fit into the space in my kitchen, but I didn't want a standard fridge. I was looking for a reasonable, side by side, that looks nice in my small kitchen. This fridge fits the description perfectly!
By Skinny Man

This refrigerator is the perfect size to fit in the kitchen cabinet and it has the storage capacity that we need. We wanted a side by side without ice and water in the door, this unit meets that requirement. It is very quiet while the compressor is running plus it cycles much less than the unit that it replaced. The freezer keeps the food frozen and frost free, yet the temperature control is set at mid-range (most economical setting) the refrigerator keeps the fresh food at the proper temperature while the fresh vegetables stay crisp in the middle drawer. I appreciate the LED lighting in both the refrigerator and freezer, this feature makes finding items much easier because it is so bright inside . It has a sleek modern look and matches well with our other appliances.
Keeps the food at just the right temperature.

Actually, my wife knew just where to buy the frig, and the salesman showed us this and other refrigerators as well as price and features and we both decided that this was the one for us.
Broke down in 4 months
from Sahuarita AZ
We bought this side by side in early October 2014. We liked and enjoyed all the features until it broke down in January 2015. No refrigeration, no freezing!!. Everything spoiled! Repair man said that the refrigerant was leaking. Needed to go back to the shop, will take a week to get it back. Meanwhile they were kind enough to give us a loaner. Kudos to the independent appliance dealer, but no kudos to the manufacturer. Should not happen in 4 months!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
33inch wide side-by-side refrigerator
By Kappy 4
from Cleveland, OH, United States
The refrigerator is just what I wanted! Lots of capacity and bright inside. I have always had Whirlpool appliances in my home.One thing disappoints me. On the top of the refrigerator there are no door -hinge covers and grey tape covers a hole near the hinge. I would gladly have paid extra for the hinge-covers like I have on the Whirlpool refrigerator that I replaced.
good lighten, very quite, love the color,
from Bay City, MI, United States
runs real quite, good lighten, clean easy,lots of room,I am very happy with it ,price was reasonable. the only negative I have is no egg tray
from Barnegat, NJ, United States
This refrigerator is just wonderful so far. It is bigger than than the one we had before and fits the space better. I love the shelves on the door and the lights in the freezer the refrigerator sections.
Great but not enough room
This refrigerator is excellent. The drawers for the vegetables keep everything perfectly--better than the other refrigerators we've had. But the storage capacity is not optimum for the size of the refrigerator, and the deli drawer is much too small
Just what we needed
Size was an issue when purchasing a new refrigerator, this model fits in the space in the cabinet. This model more than meets our needs, I did not want ice & water in the door. Another important consideration is this model is much quieter than the old refrigerator. The old unit was seventeen years old and it ran a lot, while generating a lot of unusual noises. This new unit runs a lot less and is very quiet, we have a ranch house so the low sound is an improvement. We like the internal size and LED lighting,of most importance is the fact that the inside temperature is constant and keeps the fresh food fresh and the frozen food frozen without the frost on the frozen food.
