    This fridge is nice and spacious for its size. I have a small space for my refrigerator. This refrigerator is hard to get the fingerprints off and it runs quite loud.

    The refrigerator portion doesn't get cold enough for my tastes even on coldest setting. Occasionally when the compressor kicks on it makes really loud noise on start up.

    It's okay for a basic refrigerator. Good capacity in the refrigeration section but a small freezer. The motor is quite loud, which I do not like.

    Have not had any problems with this refrigerator. I keep a thermometer in there to monitor the overall temperature, and it has been fairly consistent around 38 degrees. Occasionally the compressor seems to make a whiny noise when it is running, but not always.

    Nice smaller refrigerator. Fingerprint resistant stainless steel still shows prints, but they wipe off easily. I would have given the unit 5 stars but the compressor is a little noisy.

    This is a good mid-sized refrigerator. The interior is roomy and well lit. Wish the freezer had a light, but that is hard to find in this price range. I gave it 4 stars because the motor is a bit noisy.

    After installation, we found out there is no light in the top freezer. Its motor also turns on frequently even if the doors are closed all day. We had to move it to the garage because of the noise. Out of sight out of mind. We thought about returning it but decided other brands could be worse.

    This fridge looks great inset into the space we have in our kitchen. Compared to our previous fridge, this one keeps things frigid cold! The only thing that surprised me about this fridge is how loud it is when the cooling motor kicks on to bring down the inside temperature. I can hear it from several rooms away. It's not loud enough to be annoying, but if you're someone who likes utter quiet this may not be the fridge for you.

    We needed an overflow refrigerator to place in the garage without breaking the bank. This one fit the bill. Considering we are using this in a garage in southeast Louisiana...it keeps really cold! Items on the top shelf have been found to be almost frozen on a few occasions...and it's on the recommended temperature settings too. I may have to lower it to keep it from freezing everything I put in there. The times I've been in the garage I found it to be a bit noisy, but it's in the garage so I dont really care about it be noisy. All in all, it works for what I need and fits in the spot I needed it to be in.

    Noisey, rusting but cools adequately

    Been finding out everything is always compromises even when it comes to kitchen appliances. Emergency need arose when our highly touted refrigerator manufacturer died after only 17 months of casual use. No amount of emails, calls, or public shaming posted on social media sites, Facebook or their web site would yield a desired fair and equitable outcome so we purchased this Whirlpool top freezer refrigerator as we've had numerous Whirlpool refrigerators previously. Decent amount of cubic footage, small enough to fit thru our 29-inch wide door opening, and refrigerates satisfactorily on it's lowest setting which is a good thing. We now have the ability to dial down temps even lower especially during Summer months when all refrigerators labor the hardest. My dislikes include the fact this Whirlpool appliance is really noisy, the front stainless steel door is already rusting, and we are continually wiping down fingerprints and smudges. Too early to determine if this Whirlpool will last a minimum of 10 years which would please us. Temperature variations are not uniform in the refrigerator compartment however we can live with this just so long as foods are not spoiled. Ice cream is rock hard in freezer compartment which is a good thing. I do wish BestBuy allowed us to include more pictures as there is much to say about this decently priced top freezer refrigerator. Other compalints include the fact there is no service manual or detailed parts listings for us homeowners who perform our own preventative maintenance and repairs.
