    Good for Small Spaces

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    There are pros and cons to this fridge. I’m not a fan of the french door fridges but this was the only option for our space(less than 32”W x less than 68”H) that had the most room and a water dispenser in the door. Pros: Has good space inside after we removed a shelf and door bin. Water dispenser with an auto light so you can see at night. You can turn it on or off also but it also comes on when you dispense the water. Has an alarm if a door doesn’t get closed all the way for an extended time period. Its not too loud but it has come in handy a few times to remind us. Ice in the freezer not hard to access. I use a flour scoop that I leave in there to be more sanitary than just grabbing it with your hands. I didn’t think we would like this as opposed to being in the door with the water, but it truly hasn’t bothered us as much as we thought it would. Nice bright interior lights. Looks nice and the “stainless look” matches our “true” stainless steel dishwasher(Some don’t). Its a darker warmer gray, not silver. It can look nice with the best if them. Gray housing instead of black. I never understood why you would want black sides if you stainless steel front. But for this price it should all be stainless for the best apperance. Designed so you can open the meat and veggie drawers even if the doors can’t fully open, which ours can’t on 1 side. This is super smart and not too many brands do this. I noticed Whirlpools side by side did this too. This really helps outweigh some of the cons because it makes what space you have very useable. Who wants to buy a fridge and not be able to open the drawers? The 3 fridge drawers all seem quite funtional for the intended uses. There is a air filter to keep odors down. I like the top sliding drawer in the freezer for small things I need all the time. I can find them really quick. The bottom not so much as mentioned in the cons. Cons: Doors won’t fully open anyway as shown in the picture. Thats as far as it opens on the left! This is stupid. Inconvenient for getting a lot out at one time. You have to keep closing to get around the door in a small kitchen like ours. But it’s liveable. We had to remove 1 door bin and 1 glass shelf to make room for taller half gallon drinks and condements. We have lots more room now. The Whirlpool plastic sign is right in the top middle of fridge and in the way sometimes. The left door opens and closes without the right door opening, but its harder to do. The freezer has a fixed divider down the center of the bottom drawer which limits what you can put in there. Dumb. Its also harder to find things in this type of freezer. You just have to stack stuff on top of everything and then take it out to find things. But all bottom drawer freezers are like this and why I’m not a fan. But it’s something I can get used to for the size constraint. Magnets stick so it’s not true stainless steel. This is “stainless look” and I guess its cheaper to make but I would prefer true stainless for the price. Removing the plastic wraping. Its stuck around everything and is really hard to get off. I was careful and used tweezers around the water dispenser but we still have to remove the handles yet to get it out from behind. There is some kind of glue that had squished out I guess between the stainless at the top and bottom of the left door. You can kind off see it and definitely feel it. Its ruff. It’s upsetting with a $1,400 refrigerator. Some came off with stainless cleaner but its still there and it bugs me. This is not very fingerprint resistant which I think it says it is. But neither is true stainless. If you get a good stainless cleaner who cares. Stainless cleaner removes and helps resist finger prints anyway. This is only a con if you think you won’t have ever get fingerprints. The edges are sharp on the stainless steel handles. It’s not anywhere you will touch with your hands but only noticed it when cleaning as it caught the cloth and tore it repeatedly. Again shouldn’t be on an expensive fridge. Overall just feels lightweight and a bit cheap compared to our GE profile we had before. That felt solid when you opened the doors. The water dispenser is very shallow only about 1-1/2” deep. I’m sure this was to save space inside. It’s just you have to be careful and you cant set a glass there. But it serves its purpose. It is a loud when the ice drops. It scared the crap out of us for the first week. This is lessened by having more ice in the bin for it to drop on. But if the bin is empty oh my gosh. Thankfully our kitchen is at the opposite end of the house from our bedrooms and living room. The motor is a bit loud when running too. But its not too bad. Just shocking that a new fridge would be loud at all. The top of the fridge doors are taller than the housing case. Not a big deal but makes it harder to put things up there and remove them. I’m sure this was to keep the housing small and save space. There is another filter that came with it to put in to keep produce fresh.??? There is no place for it that we have found. The manual just says to install it but doesn’t show where. Lol! Maybe we will figure it out one day. I guess it’s not really a con just a what the heck? The price! Wowzers! Quite steep for the quality imo. Overall Whirlpool did a good job for a consumer with space constraints on design. But if your going to ask a hefty price tag then don’t cut corners. I want to feel like I got a quality appliance for $1,400. I don’t want to be left feeling like I paid too much money for what I got just because I have a smaller space. No one does. But if you are in need of a smaller fridge that matches true stainless with water through the door and can wow others then I recommend this one.

    There are Better Choices

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    I decided it was time to replace my old, but faithful Top Freezer (by Whirlpool). It was showing wear and the compressor was starting to sound stressed and worn. Being the mechanical geek I am, I figured it was a good excuse. So, i went out shopping prior to black friday and my options where very slim. There are only 6 or so models that will fit into a 32" opening and this was one... Given it had excellent reviews all around and the price was quite cheap on Black Friday, I scooped one up.. When I first got the fridge, I was thrilled. Water in the door (NO ice though), pur filtration system, a neat half shelf. A nice big deli/meat/whatever drawer.. I was stoked... However, with in a week, I quickly knew this love was gone, and with in 6 weeks, I would have a completely different fridge There are many things to like: It fits into a small space nicely, it looks really sleek, its got a really powerful ice maker, a dispenser for chilled water, a nice water filter (that's easy to change), the controls are simple to use. It seems like a perfect package But what I didn't like: Cheap, CHEAP, CHEAP quality. The door bins are made out what I am guessing to be a polycarbonite blend of some form. They don't feel like they will hold up over long term use. In fact, i've read and seen where they have broken. I had an issue with the trim around the glass for the deli drawer (see picture). In fact the deli drawer and crisper drawers are made of the same material, and because of there larger surface area, they will bend and flex in your hand. Plus the drawers do not roll smoothly at all.. They are very rough and feel like there rolling on gravel There are 2 full width shelves, with the middle one having a shelf that slides in. That's nice.. However, the top shelf will bow if you put to much on it. It very much flexes and again, has a cheap feel to it. The second shelf with the slider shelf is far sturdier but, with the shelf slid back, there is very little useable area. its a long L shaped thing with about 10" front to back of useable space with the part slid in and then to the side there is about 16" side to side and the full depth. Its enough, but oddly configured. Forget putting large bottles in here with out sliding that half shelf back. They won't fit and there's no way to configure the shelves to make that happen. Since there's only full shelves and a few slides for them, its impossible to reorder the shelves in any other way. Its very annoying and even for two people, it quickly usurps all the space inside The crisper drawers where another huge complaint.. One they where that cheap, flimsy plastic.. Two, they where of differing sizes, one being rather large, one being rectangular. It didn't quite make any sense to me what so ever. Plus there is this fresh keeper gizmo in the drawer to keep produce decent. It didn't seem to work for my stuff, but maybe that's because mine would not keep the temps steady. Also, the bigger of the two drawers didn't seal shut at all, there was 1/8"-1/2" gap in between the shelf and the top lip of the drawer. I've noticed this same gap in several display models. Overall it just felt cheap The deli drawer is really nice and of a good size, but again, cheap plastic materials and the trim around the front edge that feels so thin and cheap, almost like plastic mini blinds that have been in the sun for 10 years. It wouldn't even stay attached. Back to the door bins. You can forget using most of the bins for gallon jugs. Only the bottom right one will hold a gallon of milk. There is a tilt out/pull out condiment tray and its a nice idea, but the extra space used to make it tilt and come out, could have been put to use with another gallon sized door bin, thus allevating the need to always have that half shelf slid back (we always have several things of juice going so that alone would have been a huge help). The door bins won't hold really tall items either in the middle and there's no way to re order them to do so. You either need to put them in the tilt out condiment gizmo or hope there not too tall for the top bin. Steak sauce and so forth has to go in either place. And mostly on the left door. The right door can't handle too many tall bottles. One perk is the really nice interior lighting. If you need a bright, cheerful interior for you're fridge, this is it. My replacement I noticed is very much lacking in this area. I can live with a dimly lit fridge though (You can see every corner very clearly in this whirlpool. The pull out freezer is very nice, the bins are full plastic and are made from a much more durable plastic imho. The ice maker is wonderful and when mine actually worked, it produced alot of ice in a short time. However, the bottom part of the freezer drawer (the bottom bin) has a 65 degree angle built into it. YOU CAN NOT fit pizza boxes down here. I had bags of frozen veggies and so forth stacked down here and it worked fine for that. i had a few boxes of other things mixed in as well and that was ok. but we tried putting just vacuum wrapped pizza down there and it got all bent. They wont fit in the top drawer either. The ice bin usurps most of the space and it just isn't big enough for a boxed pizza. A vacuum sealed one maybe. But that's an if. And then you have to stick your ice cream and such up there as the drawer wont close with ice cream in the bottom bin unless you stick it all the way on the bottom and then it may get burried under the other frozen foods. The freezer was decent overall, just hard to figure out how to best use the space My main issue was the lack of temperature control. I dunno if my unit was just bad or what, but I could never keep an even temp in the unit. The front display and the manual recommend 3 snowflakes for both compartments. 3 snow flakes for the fridge would sometimes sour milk and spoil stuff, other times it would freeze everything. 4 snowflakes almost always froze everything and seemed to make everything rot/spoil just as fast. I've never had celery go bad in 4 days before. Ive also never had a fridge that would freeze everything in the back and spoil everything up front. It was just awful trying to keep it at an even temp. I in fact lost some very expensive medication because it froze and was ruined. That sent me over the edge. The snow flakes are "cute" and a "novel" idea, but lets go back to a bar or number system. 1-5 works for me.. The energy saver setting is hard to set on the controls and I dunno, it just seems there are too many buttons and such for the simple functions. Its easy to figure out, just seems overly complex. My unit also had an issue with the door alarm not working and about a week before its return, it started working.The light for the water dispenser looks nice, but its just a joke really. Overall, I was not impressed with the user interface for this fridge. It can't hold a temp and the controls just seem over the top. My only other issues where the doors (or how they closed) and the finish on the sides The left door was hard to keep closed. I've noted this on almost every in store model I've looked at and its been mentioned in a number of reviews. If you open just the left door, you need to slam it hard to get it to close all the way. and then the right one pops open. Or if you open just the right door, the left one pops open. Some times you have to slam the left one to even get it to close. It was annoying because several times the left door got left open/ajar and the darn door alarm didn't beep, so that didn't help the temp. control. A big part of what is the door latch mechanism and there is this long "pillar" in between both doors, that's hinged on to the left door. I'm not sure what purpose that pillar serves, but that pillar makes it difficult for the doors to close properly with out slamming them. Plus the latch system requires the pins to slide in a track of sorts and that track is just molded into the fridge liner.. Overall, its a very poor and odd design for a french door fridge. Its not one i've seen used much and it doesn't need to be used. There are many refrigerators with french doors that don't need a pillar. The last part is minor. The outside parts of the cabinet look like cheap plastic.. Although a very nice finish, they just look and feel like heavily grained plastic. On the stainless steel models (as an fyi) this is gray plastic, which looks very nice. It just feels cheap To sum everything up, this is a very nice fridge for a small kitchen and a small family. More than 3 people and I think your gonna need a second fridge (we got a second fridge because it couldn't hold all of our juice and drinks). If you can use the space and are good playing fridge tetris, you might like this. If you are gentle and easy on stuff, the flimsy feel to the plastic may not bug you. But, the lack of temp control, the fact that my unit lasted 6 weeks before need catostrophic repairs and the fact it just feels very cheap and flimsy and doesn't feel of good quality, should turn you away. I am a former appliance repair tech and a major mechanical geek and I will tell you, this is the most sorry product I've ever bought. I am glad that the store stood behind the product as well, as the manufacturer did not. In fact, some of the issues I've noted here are known complaints with this model and there are repairs for them, but the manufacturer doesn't see fit to offer those with out much prodding. If you can live with the above, this will be an awesome fridge. But I hope this gives you my .02 cents on what I feel was a huge mistake. I'm just glad I was able to exchange my unit at no cost for a different brand that better fits my needs

    Fits way more than I ever thought it would!

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I am a serious cook. I love to cook from scratch and I love to entertain. I also love chilled white wine and my husband loves cold beer. We purchased a huge Victorian home that has a wonderful, spacious kitchen, but like many old homes, there was no changing the tiny space for the refrigerator. Therefore, I had no choice but to get a smaller fridge. Best Buy didn't even have this particular model in their store, so I had no opportunity to actually see the true size before it was delivered to my home. I was so worried I was going to be getting a fridge that was dorm sized, because in the pictures provided by Whirlpool, it looks like hardly anything fits in there! Wow, was I surprised once the fridge was delivered! We are able to fit WAY more in there than I ever thought possible! In the door, I have a gallon of milk, a large bottle of half & half, AND a pint of heavy whipping cream in just one shelf! One of the shelves in the main fridge is adjustable, so you can push it back to fit several larger standing bottles or pitchers of juice or wine. One thing I do not like is the condiment caddy - I don't ever see myself using it, and I think if it had been a regular shelf, it could've offered more space. As for the freezer - If you are one of those people who likes to purchase huge quantities of frozen food when it's on sale and store it, the freezer will not be adequate enough. It is pretty small, and I assume something like a large boxed frozen pizza wouldn't fit in there, but we generally don't purchase frozen food, so it's totally fine for us. I also like to make pasta from scratch and freeze, which requires placing it on a cookie sheet and freezing it before putting it into bags - the top RH portion of the freezer accommodates my medium sized cookie sheet perfectly, so I am happy about that. As far as the actual operation of the fridge, it chills and freezes everything just fine. In summary, if you're a cook who doesn't mind playing a bit of Tetris with your fridge and you don't need an enormous amount of freezer space, this model should serve you well for daily use. I will still have a garage or basement fridge for extra drinks (lots of beer bottles don't fit standing up in this fridge, although lots of cans will fit), and also for holidays or large parties when I have to make many things ahead and store in the fridge.

    Broke down within 35 days


    To Whom it may concern, Hello. HELP!!!!! We purchased a Whirlpool Refrigerator from Best Buy in Jackson, Michigan model WRF560SEYB05 mid-June. Delivery and installation occurred July 17, 2017. The refrigerator functioned reasonably well with exception to poor production of ice for approximately 2 weeks. It then began to make noises, similar to a helicopter hovering overhead. It then ceased to operate. The old GE refrigerator which we have owned for approximately 25 years operated admirable. It was functioning just fine, when it was removed, upon installation of the new one. All of our food product, condiments, were in the new refrigerator. After new refrigerator failed, our only other alternative was to attempt to relocate some of our items into a small auxiliary refrigerator we keep in our basement. Also important to note, we garden, can and freeze assorted vegetables, for use throughout the winter season. This was a very bad time for refrigerator failure. We contacted Best Buy of Jackson, noting we purchased a 5 year warranty/guarantee for the unit. As the unit was less than one year of age, they referred us to Whirlpool. We contacted Whirlpool whom dispatched a repair representative approximately a week later. The representative visited the home, stating he needed to order parts. Upon delivery of parts they would arrange installation. This has been some time ago, during which time we have suffered much food spoilage which we are tabulating as well as significant inconvenience regarding limited refrigerator space and the need to purchase ice from a store, to utilize. We paid for a reasonably good product in good faith, expecting decent operation and timely response, should it fail, especially understanding the five year warranty we purchased. Despite this, we suffered food loss to a remarkable degree, in addition to significant inconvenience. Meanwhile, we continue to await the whirlpool maintenance representative contact with information concerning the replacement component and appointment to install, in order to regain the units operation. I will continue to await their response. I also anticipate their reimbursement for my food loss, during this process. This is a warning to all, research your products, and may I suggest a 25 year old GE refrigerator. I will also note the Whirlpool serial number is VS72088079 for customer reference. Respectfully submitted, Owner of useless equipment taking up space.

    Total Waste of Money


    A truly awful purchase. If you are considering purchasing this refrigerator, odds are that you are doing so because of space limitations (at least that was why we ended up buying it). There simply HAVE to be better alternatives out there. The first issue that we encountered was that the ice maker wouldn't keep working, because the sensor arm would not drop down after you closed the freezer. Whirlpool did send me a replacement arm, but by that time I had implemented a work-around of placing a piece of plastic tubing around the existing arm to weigh it down. The more disturbing issue is that the refrigeration area has VERY inconsistent temperatures, freezing on some shelves, warm enough to spoil food on others. After reading many reviews with similar issues/complaints, I contacted Whirlpool (this was shortly after the one-year warranty was up, of course), and their answer was to contact a repairman. I had already read of countless people having similar issues, which were not remedied by replacing various parts during expensive service calls, so I decided to try to make things better on my own. I was able to do this by placing tape over half of the bottom two air vents in the refrigerator compartment. This seemed to divert more of the cool air from the bottom shelf (where things had been freezing) to the top shelf (where things had been spoiling). This has been working for over a week now. So, in summary, this major appliance is only running reasonably because of fixes I did myself with plastic tubing and packaging tape. So much buyer's remorse. Please don't buy this product.

    GREAT option for small space

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    Our situation - we needed to replace an aging 29.75" refrigerator in a '50s ranch w/small kitchen and no room to expand. We filter & chill our drinking water therefore loose space the size of a gallon milk jug in the refrigerator. We wanted to regain that real estate with an in refrigerator filtered water dispenser. We also wanted a 2 door unit for easier access but did not want a side-by-side, although not an option (they no longer make s-by-s in less than 32" width). With these requirements in mind we could find only 3 options. 2 were in the same price range (within $50 of each other) the 3rd lost refrigerator space to an in door ice dispenser while the other 2 had ice makers within the freezer. Wife actually liked the 3rd best for heftiness of shelf construction and adjustability but NOT $300 more. We research the three and found the reviews all comparable. The negatives for this unit they fall well within the expected performance range from new appliances. Having been in the construction business we planned for a 25% failure rate for new appliances (either DOA or failure within warranty period). The negative reviews were far short of 25% failure, with many appearing to be for issues unrelated to the appliance performance. 45 days into ownership - Freezer freezes and refrigerator cools as they are designed. Temperature controls, control the temperature. The ice maker works as designed and expected, it was properly connected to water source so no leaks (ice maker leaking or not working are 2 of the recurring review complaints I found in my research). Water dispenser flows as any other filtered refrigerator dispenser. Only negative we experienced - I had a 30" space to work with (floor to ceiling cabinet on 1 side and counter on the other. The manufacturer specs call it as 29.5" wide, which is accurate for the door width, BUT the sides budge and it needs 30 1/8" to prevent damage when putting in place.

    Best French Door style fridge for the size

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    My wife and I went with this fridge as it was pretty much the only fridge that was not Side by Side or Top Freezer style on the market that could fit our space(<32"). It was also one of only a few french door style with door water dispenser. We also liked the LED lighting(won't have to worry about bulbs ever again). Pros: Lots of space(if you can find a good configuration of the shelves) Water dispenser Small profile Works well(had ice within hours of hooking up) Deep freezer drawer - Can store lots of frozen items(more than our old side by side, that's for sure) Cons: Limited shelf configurations - Making it a bit difficult to fit taller items like wine bottles, OJ, Milk and similar. Door doesn't swing wide enough - There is a stopper bracket mounted near the bottom hinge of each door, but removing it only grants a few more degrees of opening, not enough to make a difference. The door shelves are so large, combined with the door only opening so far, that you need to squeeze your way into the main compartment of the fridge to really get anything. We knew when buying it and having looked at the floor model that we would have to deal with some of those cons, and it was still worth the purchase. It is a good price and well-featured fridge for the size we needed.

    It fits and works

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    Ok so we insisted on a French door model and because of the opening in our kitchen our options were limited. This is smaller than many, the lighting isn't as "pretty" as other models, etc. The price is however better than many other "larger" models. Now for some details that were perhaps missing from the description; there's only water available through the door and the water that comes out is not very cold (about 50F according to the manual). If those things aren't an issue for you, then this unit will do just fine. Also the last thing I want to add is the shelves; if you have a lot of tall pitchers, you will definitely need to move them around (or take them out altogether) to make space. Again, if this isn't an issue for you then you're ok. Ultimately if you have a space large enough for a bigger machine (and your budget allows) you would definitely go that route. If you're like us and have a narrow space (35.5" or less width, 68.5" or less height to the case) then this is your best option in a French door fridge.
