I purchased the Whirlpool WRV986FDEM French door refrigerator with DUAL ice makers about a month ago and am very happy with it. Prior to my purchase I did a LOT of research on various makes and models. My "contractor original" GE fridge compressor had been making some odd noises and I had already made a few minor repairs myself. Expecting an imminent failure I started looking for a replacement. Luckily I had almost 4 months to research and find the one the met all of my needs at a price I could afford.

I like that Whirlpool focuses on appliances. They don't make TVs or Tablet PCs - they make appliances.

I purchased my fridge from Lowes and I highly recommend them to anyone. Other stores had this model available but Lowes had it in stock the day my fridge died and they price matched. Great experience there.

Now on to the fridge features: The fridge has dual ice makers. TWO! This feature alone is worth the extra money. (side note: The ice cubes are curiously small but I'm getting used to that. The dog still prefers the bigger ones so now I give him two at a time.) The door-mounted ice maker holds enough ice to support our family's needs on a daily basis. Of the other models I researched, they either had a decent capacity which took up a lot of interior fridge space or had a small capacity that would meet our daily needs but fall short whenever we needed some for a cooler or were entertaining guests. Running out of ice during a party stinks! The other thing I learned about door-mounted ice makers from many other brands is that they are not well insulated and they leak or drip water into the water dispenser tray area. Not the case with this one. Well-designed and well insulated. The ice is very cold :)

The lighting in this fridge is fantastic. I am not a big fan of harsh LED lighting but this fridge seems to use LEDs that are easier on the eyes. I like it. While I still prefer the warm glow of the incandescent lights, I got used the LEDs pretty quickly. And apparently they don't make new refrigerators with those kind of bulbs anymore.

I love how the two exterior refrigerator drawers are separate compartments. You don't have to open the French doors all the way to access the drawer(s) like I saw on so many other models. We gave our 8-year-old exclusive access to one of the drawers where she can store all of her snacks. She was very happy to have her own space. It is easy for her to reach and she doesn't leave the big doors hanging wide-open while she locates and decides what she wants. Much better for cooling efficiency!

The main compartment is huge and accommodates everything. party platters, pizza boxes, gallons of milk, juice, etc. The one complaint I have about the main compartment is the door shelves/compartments are very large. I wish there were adjustable dividers or one smaller compartment where I could put the small condiment bottles and things that fall over easily. If you don't have the area full things tend to fall over when you shut the door. The shelves are attractive and easy to clean. The top shelf on one side is split front-to-back so you can have a half-shelf which give you extra clearance for tall items if needed. Nice touch!

Now the freezer: Did I mention there are TWO ice makers? The freezer has a nice large tray that holds about 10Lbs of ice. There's also a place to store the ice scooper(yes, the ice scooper is included!) The front of the freezer door is designed for frozen pizza boxes to be stored on edge. Great idea! Plenty of storage space and I like the sliding upper shelf to keep things organized. Some lighting comment as above - very bright.

The front of the fridge is stainless steel and is also magnetic so you can hang all of your kid's beautiful artwork on it... if you want to. The water dispenser has enough clearance to fit my 24OZ water bottle when filling it up. This was not the case with my old fridge and those little things really make a difference over time.

In summary: Attractive design ID, Great features, excellent build quality, excellent documentation.

Bottom line: I am very happy with my purchase and I would recommend this product to anyone considering it(have already)!

love the refrigerator! Its always organized and very functional. I have condensation problems and the motor is loud. The condensation problem is taken care but the motor is still loud. The rusting issue is bad and the customer service has not responded to my emails and now I am out of warrantee. Very disappointed in Whirlpool, product is expensive, less than a year old and now I have to live with a rusted refrigerator that looks like it's 40 yrs old.

Comments about Whirlpool 25.8 Cu. Ft. Double Drawer White Ice French Door Refrigerator:

My husband and I researched refrigerators both online and in person. We read many reviews, compared pricing, features and availability. After much discussion, we both decided on the Whirlpool 26 cu. ft with double drawers and dual icemakers. We could not be more thrilled with our choice. This fridge is exactly what we were looking for. It accommodates the busy, active lifestyles of two adults and two college students perfectly. We strive to be eat healthy and this is made easy with more room for fresh produce and a thaw drawer to ensure safe cooking at home.

Was worried I would loose storage on the door due to water/ice maker but shelves on right are large enough to make up for it. Absolutely love having the extra drawers for drinks and produce!

Fridge did not work from day one

By 

from Missouri

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 25.8 Cu. Ft. Double Drawer White Ice French Door Refrigerator:

Noticed the fridge was not keeping temperatures for the fridge or freezer upon arrival. Tried to adjust the temperature down but the fridge started making a loud noise (that doesn't stop) within two weeks of install. Called the warranty department and had to wait 5 days to get a service technician who never showed up. When I called I was told it was rescheduled for 5 more days later. In the mean time it is still not keeping temperatures. Now the loud noise has stopped but a beeping and an error code of PO keeps popping up on the fridge and will not clear. I can reset but it comes back. Ready to return it to the store.

Comments about Whirlpool 25.8 Cu. Ft. Double Drawer White Ice French Door Refrigerator:

Great fridge, 2 ice makers is really nice, the one in the freezer allows for quick access to large amounts of ice instead of waiting for it to slowly come out the door.
Over all quality of materials and for and finish is above average.
After one month we are very pleased with this fridge.
