Whirlpool 26 Cu Ft 4 Door Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - WRX988SIBSBK

You'll always have the perfect place to store bulk food purchases, small snacks, produce and whatever else you bring home from the grocery store with the Whirlpool® 28 cu. ft. 4-door refrigerator. Thanks to this model's FreshStor™ refrigerated drawer, EasyView™ Triple Crisper system, Tri-freezer system and industry-exclusive EasySlide bin, it offers the most flexible storage1. There's even an extra shelf in the refrigerator compartment thanks to the In-Door-Ice® system. And with AccuFresh® dual cooling technology, you'll be able to keep fruits and vegetables fresher and keep crystals off ice cream. If there's ever a spill, you won't have to worry about it spreading either. MicroEdge® shelves feature a seamless edge design that helps contain leaks while offering 25% more usable shelf space2.

Features:

  • Most Flexible Storage1 The Whirlpool® 4-door refrigerator offers the most flexible storage1. Thanks to this 28 cu. ft. model's FreshStor™ refrigerated drawer, EasyView™ Triple Crisper system, Tri-freezer system and EasySlide bin, you'll always have the perfect place to store bulk food purchases, small snacks, produce and whatever else you bring home from the grocery store.
  • FreshStor™ Refrigerated Drawer Put frequently used items in easy reach with a true refrigerated drawer. It features temperature controls that let you make adjustments based on which refrigerated items you'd like to store—from fresh produce to cold drinks. The full extension drawer and dividers also make it easy to organize and find what you need quickly.
  • EasyView™ Triple Crisper System Increase your refrigerator's storage flexibility and keep fruits and vegetables tasting great with the EasyView™ Triple Crisper system. Now you can easily see and access produce with full crisper drawer visibility. Plus, organize a wide variety of items with three drawer options. Automatic humidity control also helps maintain freshness.
  • Tri-Freezer System Two upper sliding drawers and a spacious lower basket makes organizing frozen food easy. Now you can take home the freezer space and organization you need to store bulk food purchases.
  • EasySlide Bin Keep snacks close at hand with the industry-exclusive EasySlide bin. This snack compartment makes accessing everyday items easy with greater flexibility and sliding glass lids.
  • In-Door-Ice® System This innovative system moves the ice bin to the door, creating room for an extra shelf in the refrigerator compartment. A removable, clear ice bin lets you fill coolers with ease.
  • AccuFresh™ Dual Cooling System AccuFresh® Dual Cooling System helps keep fruits and vegetables fresher and helps keep crystals off ice cream. Food tastes great with ideal temperature and humidity levels in the refrigerator and freezer compartments for improved food preservation.
  • MicroEdge® Shelves Keep spills under control and help prevent them from leaking onto other shelves with the MicroEdge® shelves' innovative spill-control technology. Not only do these industry exclusive shelves help contain leaks, but they also feature a sleek, seamless-edge design for 25% more usable shelf space2. Compared to Whirlpool® french door models without MicroEdge® shelves.
  • Fold-Away Shelf Make room for tall items. The front of this adjustable shelf slides out of the way creating temporary storage space for containers like a tall 2-liter bottle or a large salad bowl.
  • Pizza Pocket Easily store frozen pizzas in your freezer with the freezer's Pizza Pocket. Now you can store pizza boxes upright without the hassle of trying to fit them on flat freezer shelves.
  • Freezer Divider Easily customize freezer storage and organize frozen food with the moveable freezer divider bin. This bin is ideal for small or loose freezer items.
  • Measured Fill Allows you to select the exact amount of filtered water - in ounces, cups or liters - that you need. The dispenser will fill the container and automatically shut off when complete.
  • Fast Ice Option The Fast Ice option drops freezer temperatures for a full 24 hours to increase ice production by over 30%.
  • Panoramic LED Interior Lighting Panoramic LED lighting makes finding items in your refrigerator easier by surrounding food with light. By placing lights throughout the refrigerator, shadows are reduced from every angle.
  • Adjustable Gallon Door Bins Build your door storage to fit your needs. Adjustable gallon door bins easily move when and where you need them to. The gallon-size bins can easily accommodate beverage jugs and other larger containers.
  • Exterior Filtered Ice and Water Dispenser with Tap Touch Controls Minimize the need for bottled water with an exterior dispenser that offers cold, filtered water and ice without opening the door, while electronic controls make accessing features easy. The flush dispenser and Tap Touch controls also provide a sleek look and are easy to use.
  • FreshFlow™ Produce Preserver3 Extend the freshness of produce up to 4 days longer with the FreshFlow™ produce preserver3. A filter absorbs excess ethylene gas that causes fruit and vegetables, like lettuce and cantaloupe, to spoil. Replace the filter every 6 months for optimal performance.
  • FreshFlow™ Air Filter Leave air freshness to your refrigerator. This model's FreshFlow™ air filter is 15 times more effective than baking soda at reducing common food odors by actively circulating air through our carbon based filter. Replace the filter every 6 months for optimal performance.
  • PUR® Water Filtration System Kick the bottled water habit with the PUR® water filtration system. You'll help protect the environment by preventing the disposal of up to 3,000 plastic bottles a year and save over $600 for yourself. Select models offer filtered water from an interior or exterior dispenser.
  • Adaptive Defrost Adaptive Defrost senses and adapts to help save energy and provides improved food preservation by running the defrost cycle only when necessary. Sensors monitor how often the compressor operates, as well as when the doors are opened to help determine when a defrost cycle is necessary.

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.

I am very pleased with my Whirlpool. My previous refrigerator was a side by side so the new one is an enjoyable experience. I was concerned about the ice maker but we have plenty of ice. I love the interior lighting.

Very pleased so far - very nice upgrade to our kitchen

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We've had the fridge for almost two months. Replaced a 30 year old GE side by side which was still going strong by it was time....

Pros: Appearance, various storage areas (drawers, slots, shelves, etc), depth (slightly shallower than many others), interior lighting is bright. We like the extra drawer.

Cons: nothing significant. as others have said, water dispenser tends to end up with some on the floor -- I can't understand why the "drip tray" at the bottom of the opening doesn't have a shallow area to store minor drips -- it's just flat. The settings on the chill drawer are easy to change by accident as you open and close the drawer. Other than these two minor issues, no cons as yet. We have not noticed any significant noise as yet.

I'm amused each day when I open it, and inside it looks just like the promotional pictures.

I would say it holds a little less than our side-by-side which was similar cubic feet, but after a couple of days using it, we worked out how to take advantage of the spaces it provides.

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I love my new whirlpool refrigerator! It is so perfect for functionality. It has enough space for everything and I love the way the freezer is set up. It has a pizza slot plus two drawers above the main drawer that slide out. This means nothing is stacked on top of each other making it impossible to get to it. Everything is accessible and easy on the eyes. It makes great ice. It is not too noisy. I just love it!!

Nice fridge

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Bought about 6 weeks ago. Had to be replaced 3 days later. LED lights in top did not work and water filter leaked. 2nd fridge had issue with freezer door not shuttling properly. Delivery persons did not put on correctly. Touch pad is a little finicky doesnt work 1st time every time. Nice fridge with lots of room. Hopefully the problems are behind us.
