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 figure??_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!

Good for our needs
We needed a refrigerator that would fit in the built-in space. We also didn't want the in door water/ice dispenser as this is the first thing to break (just read other reviews)....Read complete review
We needed a refrigerator that would fit in the built-in space. We also didn't want the in door water/ice dispenser as this is the first thing to break (just read other reviews). We did however purchase the optional ice maker. I'm happy with the functionality of the appliance. It seems like they could design the spill proof shelves so as not to take up valuable space 2" all the way around the shelf. Three shelves, in my opinion, is not enough. Four would be better as I am stacking containers on top of each other. Fingerprints are not impossible to remove from the stainless steel, but it is a daily chore.

Comments about Whirlpool 22 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Stainless Refrigerator:
Very quiet,really really amazingly quiet!;very different from the GE I had are the lights- have had to get used to the lights that turn on once you open the door but now I like watching them unfold-like a sunrise! and the cool blue hue but once on they are very bright without the harshness, sadly, did not get the ice maker installed but may add this add at later time once a water line is added ! Old fashioned ice cube trays are still holding their own ! .
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very effective, exactly as proised
from Seattle, WA
This has proven in a month to be a very effective replacement refrigerator.
Pretty Good but Noisy
We got this about a month ago to replace a 15-year old Kenmore that was working OK but was getting too noisy for us. Overall this fridge gets the job done, with a decent amount of space - we really like the lighting. The finish could be better (exposed hinges with tape on top) and the doors seem a bit flimsy at times as well. Also, it does still seem to some noises - we were hoping it would be nearly silent compared to the 15-year old one we just ditched. All the noises we do hear are classified as "normal" in manual, however we are slightly disappointed in this respect. Again, it gets the job done but could be better in these respects. We can't say one way or another whether we'd recommend it to a friend...
very good so far
everything is going fine,freezer very good and refrigerator as well.
Hard to fit space
from Barrington New Jersey
The first refrigerator delivered was very noisy, service rep said it was normal, sent it back anyway and the second one was great. It was hard to find a side by side to fit our space so our choices were limited, our previous frig was a Whirlpool and it lasted us for 33 years, not bad! We did need an extra shelf for the refrigerator side other wise it's been ok so far.

I never had a side by side before and wasn't sure I'd like it. Now, I"m convinced. It makes finding your food so much quicker and easier than bottom freezer models I wonder why I never gave it a try before. You can see everything in both the refrigerator and freezer sections at a glance. The enhanced lighting adds to the ease of seeing whats in there and finding it fast. Everything is right up front and easy to get in and out. Easy to adjust shelves to suit my own needs for space. Very pleased with how much more interior usable space there is in both the freezer and refrigerator compartment than in my old 19 cubic foot bottom freezer model, which was the same size exterior.

We only bought the fridge a month ago, but are very happy with it. The vertically organized fridge and freezer are working out great. It is easy to position the things you use most within the closest reach. But even the bottom drawers are working out fine. The fridge door also stays in a wide open position without crashing back against the cabinets. We opted out of the ice-maker to avoid possible floor damage from leaks, so are also appreciating the extra storage space that gives us.

I like my new refrigerator-freezer. HOWEVER, it was a real surprise when Pacific Gas & Electric Company told me it does not qualify for their energy efficiency rebate program. I would have gotten a $75 rebate otherwise. Because of this, I am super sad.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
