My old refrigerator was a Whirlpool, which was working well after 15 years, but NH Saves audit suggested I get a newer Energy Star model. I found that this Whirlpool was rated with a yearly cost of $49, far less than anything newer and fancier (mostly $60-$80 a year) and the cost $599.99, was far less than any of the newer ones, which were $1,000-$2,500. Delivery was ok, but the guys were ready to leave without changing the door from right to left hinge. They finally did. They didn't raise the front legs so the door swings open and slams on top of my foot. The fridge drawers seem much lighter plastic than the old one and may break easier. It seems to hold more than my old one and is the same size, so better designed interior. I wish a gallon of milk would fit on the door like my old one.
Delivery person took photos of dent . Told me to call to replace refrigerator . It should’ve been done right away for replacement. In order to get a new one I will have to take another day off and loose pay. Also their is a noise that I am uncomfortable with. Like knocking when freezer kicks in. I don’t even know what number or company to call. I would’ve been okay with a discount but then I started hearing the unusual noise
I am quite pleased with the new Whirlpool. It has more refrigerator space than my 27 yr. old Whirlpool. It gives me more room in the kitchen, and I don't have to clean under it. The freezer is handy for items we want to consume in the week. However, I wish they would have been more specific about the 2 crisper bins. I'm not used to mixing greens and fruits in a bin. I appreciated the specific info about not covering air vents. Whirlpool has improved the design of the interior. It is easy to keep clean.
I purchased this refrigerator as a second refrigerator. It is pretty basic. I do wish there was a light in the freezer, and my ice cream does not fully harden in the freezer. Since there is only one temperature control, I don't want to set it to the coldest setting just to make my ice cream harden.
This refrigerator was a replacement for an Insignia one that quick after just a few months of use. This is night and day difference. The Whirlpool is quiet, energy efficient, extremely well-made. The drawers have not cracked after putting produce in them and most importantly, it is still running after months of use! It is worth the extra few dollars to get the Whirlpool product, as it seems to be more robust than the Insignia one was.
This is used as an outside refrigerator in the garage that replaces pretty much the same model that was 10 years old. Having a refrigerator in South Florida that is not in an air-conditioned place is pretty hard on the appliance so I think 10 years is probably a decent amount of time to last. It would be nice if the temperature was not controlled by simply a button but rather controlled digitally. However, at this price point you can not expect more. I would recommend putting a temp gauge in the refrigerator to confirm you have the right settings.
A:AnswerHi jcarter, besides not being Energy Star Certified, the WRT318FZDW has all glass shelves versus only one fixed glass shelf and the others, wire in the WRT138FZDW, also the WRT318FZDW has Easy Connect Icemaker Kit option and fingerprint-resistant finish. Hope this helps!
