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 saw her from across the (insert big box chain store here). She was big and she was beautiful. That was it, I was taking her home with me that night. I couldn't wait to get into her big beautiful drawers. When we got home she was bigger than I thought, I had to take my front door off the hinges to get her in.

                                I immediately started messing around with her. I just couldn't wait to turn her on. She was lusting for my food. She took everything I had and still wanted more. I couldn't believe her capacity for food.

                                Unfortunately things didn't work out. She has a loose gasket around her bottom drawer. Her freezer lets warm air in and the condensation that results freezes the drawer shut. Based on other reviews here it seems that it's a known flaw. I have a repair guy coming out to fix it but I don't think I'll ever look her the same way once someone else gets their hands in her drawers. I love how big she it but I expected better from her.

                                READ the reviews that talk about her being noisy, broken water dispenser and loose freezer door. They are repetitive which means any of the three could happen to you if you buy this refrigerator.

                                                  We've had this unit for about two months and at this point we are not happy with it. This model has a variety of noises, but one in particular has a high-pitch whine & is very loud and last a long time. The in-door ice maker has two issues: The first is when you have a full ice basket, the cubes form a solid mass so that when you choose the cube function all you get is shaved or crushed ice - you need to remove the ice bin & break apart the ice mass so you can dispense cubes. To minimize this happening, we make no more than one-half bin of ice by shutting off the ice maker. Shutting off the ice maker is very inconvenient as the on-off switch is small & not easily accessable.There is always water on the freezer drawer gasket. If I could return it I would.

                                                        I booought my refrigerator in July and I am very happy with it. The only issue that bothers me is the small size of the ice storage bin, I frequently run out of ice on very warm days. I can empty the bin into a bag to place in freezer and have additional ice on hand if I remember to do so in advance but that doesn't always happen. I especially like the "4th drawer space" just below main refrigerator before freezer. I like how easy it is to use for smaller items that otherwise would be buried in the baack of my refrigerator.

                                                              Well I am going on my 6 month with the refrigerator and now the 3rd repair and looking like the 4th since now the ice maker will not even fill up in a 10 hour period with fast ice on. It is so sad since the layout of the refridge is nice and wanted to buy USA made but that has bitten us. I wish we had gone with Samsung had one 3 yrs and no trouble what so ever. I guess shame on us since Whirlpool will not admit we got a lemon. Thank goodness we got the extended warranty since the repairman is on a first name basis.
