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.

After my 3RD!!, break in a year or defective refrigerator (2 Frigidaire & 1 LG), I went with the Whirlpool at the recommendation of my Mom. And I couldn't be happier! It run quiet and the space is roomy! My husband LOVES the extra ice bin for his water jug and my daughters for Softball! So happy and grateful!

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

We've had this refrigerator for almost a month now. We've been wanting to upgrade to this style of refrigerator for awhile now and I couldn't have found a better one. The quality and performance so far is something that should cost a lot more than it did. I really like the drawers for storing fruit and deli items. It matches really well with our other Whirlpool appliances.

Big-Many Options-Fits In Space

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

I bought the refrigerator about a month ago. My sister had bought a refrigerator with the French doors which my wife and l really liked. First, I was looking for a refrigerator that would fit in the space. Height had been an issue. I had carefully measured the space and this refrigerator was suppose to allow .125" space to spare (which I knew was questionable of fitting). I had to plane off about 1/4", but it fit! This replaced a refrigerator that we had for 30 years. There is so much more room. Drawers that separate the deli meats from fruits and vegetables. We had never had the ice/water in the door either, which we will come to appreciate more as the weather heats up. The extra lights make it very easy to see everything in the fridge. I also like the option of ice in the door but also the extra tub in the freezer drawer. The refrigerator is everything that we had hoped for and more. It is a 5+ star in my estimation.

Love the Space

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

Bought this the first part of January and so far we love the amount of space compared to our 20 year old Whirlpool side by side refrigerator. Have only had one issue so far and not sure if it will occur again or not. The refrigerator was getting to cold down to about 28 on the thermometer we keep inside. It was set for 37 the factory default. I unplugged it for a few minutes and plugged it back in to see if it resets it and so far no more problems. Have seen some people complain about this unit being loud but it is quieter than our old refrigerator.

Ultimate Refrigerator for Large Families with Lots of Kids

By 

from Florence, SC

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

We have a large family with 5 kids and this refrigerator really holds a lot of groceries. We really love the dual ice makers as we travel on weekends to the kids sports and need a cooler of ice for drinks and snacks. Now we don't have to take all the ice from the ice maker and come home to an empty ice bin!! The pull out drawers also keep the kids from opening the top doors so often when getting snacks or drinks. We looked at a lot of refrigerators and nothing has a better layout than the Whirlpool!

Nice Upgrade

By 

from Hopkinsville, KY

Verified Buyer

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

I bought this several weeks ago to replace an 8 year old model that was lacking ice and water in the door. So far, I am extremely pleased with this refrigerator. It has plenty of room and the upgrades are amazing. I always have enough ice on hand with the dual ice makers and the measured fill option in the door is a wonderful surprise. It has easy self, closing drawers and I like the adjustable temperature in the left side drawer to meet various needs. There are so many great features, it's really hard to mention them all.

The only negatives that I have found are: the oversized bins in the doors are so large that most items overturn every time you open and close the door, it took at least 15 gallons of water being run through the filter before the water and ice became clear, and the stainless is definitely not "smudge proof" like my last model.

The positives far outweigh the few negatives and I would definitely purchase this model if I had it to do over again!

Easy Access

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

I love being able to get to everything without having to use a step stool or empty a bunch of stuff out of the freezer to retrieve an item. The semi self-closing doors and drawers is also are very helpful features. Now we don't have to throw food away because the temperatures are either preset or can be regulated on the meat and produce drawers. It's the best refrigerator we have ever owned.
