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!

refrigerator came with only three shelves unless I get rid of a vegetable bin. Seems a bit narrow.

Comments about Whirlpool 22 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Stainless Refrigerator:
Still waiting for the third ice maker. The first two didn't have enough tubing to connect with the water line. Hope the third time is a charm. The refrigerator is not even two weeks old and the freezer handle is loose???? Scared to

Great cabinet depth efficient refrigerator!
from Portland, OR, United States
I bought this fridge about a month ago and my electricity bill went down by $40. I had a hard time finding a cabinet depth model for my kitchen. This one was perfect for what I needed; fairly spacious for the size, quiet, bright and organized compartments. I highly recommend it for the price.
Good for the price
from Denver, CO, United States
Purchased online, had not seen in person before delivery. It looks great in my kitchen although the interior is smaller than expected. I'm having a hard time fitting everything from my old fridge into this one, even though my old fridge was smaller overall. The shelves seem weak, they bow if anything heavy is placed on them. Drawers don't glide in and out smoothly, they catch and jam and squeak. Always have to use two hands evenly placed on the drawers and push them in very carefully. Other than these minor issues, I haven't had any problems. It's simple, no water or ice maker hooked up so no noise or leak issues. Good for the price.
So Far, So Good

My wife and I purchased this refrigerator about a month ago and have been very pleased. We previously owned a GE above average grade refrigerator and were extremely disappointed with that brand. Our new refigerator is doing everything we expect a refigerator to do: keep things cold, doors open easily and stay closed, shelving and drawers operate adequately, referigerator runs quietly and not often (hoping it is efficient) and it looks great. Looking forward to many good years in the future. Respectfully, Rick Mertz
Love the shelf and drawer storage along with the large adjustable refridgerator door storage bins.

This fridge replaced the same model that was over 14 years old. We are well pleased with this purchase and the improvements Whirlpool has made in this model. We especially like the LED lighting, no more dark areas in the fridge or freezer. This model is the only one that will fit in our kitchen without removing a built in kitchen cabinet, which we did not want to do.

Perfect fit and function
from Toledo, OH, United States
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.
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!

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.
