We've had this model for a month now and I love it. We have had no mechanical problems. Cost was comparable to other similar models. Set up was simple. Shelving and drawers are durable. Can fit lots of things inside including multiple gallon size containers. Unit runs quietly. 2 of the 4 drawers are quite small. Overall very impressed by product.

We've had this unit for about a month. The first thing we discovered is that unless you can open the door more than 90 degrees, you can't pull out the two right-hand veggie drawers. (We had inquired about this very problem, and were told 90 degrees was sufficient, so apparently the people at Whirlpool have bad info.) Since our fridge is next to a wall, this was a problem. We dealt with it by removing the top drawer altogether (and just using that area as a shelf) and then angling the whole unit slightly askew to the left, so that we can open the bottom drawer just enough to put in and take out small items that we don't use very often (certain condiments). The second issue is that the support for that shelf I refer to above is just a flimsy piece of plastic. I suppose this would be fine if we were able to keep the drawer in place for more support, but we have to be VERY careful not to knock this piece of plastic aside or break it. It has come out once--it's just wedged in there--but so far we have been able to put it back okay and keep using the shelf. Oh, and one other problem: to get it to run at an appropriate temp, we had to set it on the lower setting. I have a refrigerator thermometer, and the factory setting only produced a temp of about 42. Since 38-40 is optimal, we have been running it at the lower setting. Since there is no knob to turn, you only have three choices for settings and you can't fine-tune it. Frankly, we would have gone for another item but this was the ONLY all-fridge ANYWHERE we could find that would fit into the spot where our old one (Woods) was. What is the deal with the refrigerator industry!!!??? Also, please keep making white fridges; not everyone wants stainless steel (ugh).

Comments about Whirlpool SideKicks White Ice Freezerless Refrigerator:
Purchased this refrigerator over a month ago, and so far we are very satisfied. Love the sleek look. Fingerprints do show but it cleans easily. If I could change one thing, it would be the versatility of shelf spacing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Run away as fast as you can!

This refrigerator is far and away the worst purchase I have ever made. First unit didn't work when it was delivered. Second unit lasted 4 months before it stopped working due to what appears to be a freon leak. More than $300 in food ruined. After reading reviews on other sites this appears to be a regular occurrence. They will replace it with another faulty unit that breaks and spoils more food. Obviously this is either a known design flaw or consistently poor manufacturing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Terrible! We are now waiting for our 3red one to be delivered and just built our house 18 months ago! The "approved" whirlpool warranty company is equally terrible...would not buy this or the matching freezer again!

We bought the side kick freezer and fridge when we built our house( we designed the kitchen around it). Ugh! The first fridge broke 4 times( same problem stopped cooling) whirlpool replaced it. We bought an extended warranty and now 13 mo later same issue. I called on September 1, 2016. It is now October 19,2016 and we are still waiting for the repair service to get parts. Ugh! Living out of a cooler for 7 weeks and spending a bunch on groceries and ice. Not happy at all.. Please, please, please save your money. We are stuck now because we designed the kitchen around this stupid thing so we can't even go get a different fridge because it will look stupid.

We purchased 6 weeks ago and are very pleased with it meeting our needs. The extra space w/o freezer is wonderful. It is a perfect fit in our 50 yr old Pullman kitchen.

8 Years ago I outfitted my kitchen with all Whirlpool Gold appliances. 3 yrs ago, my microwave started falling apart, a year ago, this fridge unit started leaking water and would not stay cold on a consistant basis, 3 weeks ago it broke down completley. 2 months ago, one of the burners on my electric stove went out. So I am impressed with Whirlpool Gold?? Not one bit. I have custom cabinets built around this fridge/freezer unit and have water damage to the cabinets because of it. Even when the repair man came out, he had nothing good to say about this unit. I thought i was buying high quality appliances hence "GOLD". I feel that for the amount of money, my microwave, stove top and fridge should have lasted alot longer than 8 years tops.

I bought this and the matching all-freezer along with the trim kit. Creates a very high-end look for a reasonable price. Great value, overall.
