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!

Comments about Whirlpool 22 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Stainless Refrigerator:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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

When the old Whirlpool finally gave out I decided to get another one. I had no ideal that this new one had some many updated features and upgraded shelves. The price was more than reasonable when you compare it to the other products on the market. It was just a great purchase.
easy to use and very quite, easy to change water filter

I am so pleased with my side by side frig. As I have an older home,my space is limited. I never thought I could fit a side by side but the design of this appliance is outstanding. I can actually find food items in my frig. I especially love the freezer again for making products much easier to locate with its organization and lighting.
refrigerator came with only three shelves unless I get rid of a vegetable bin. Seems a bit narrow.

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
