Very happy with it. We had the same on in a different color before this one. We changed to the Stainless steel. I like the sides on the outside of the fridge. They are textured and do not show fingerprints. Love it!
Our old one had the door for a freezer. This one has the slide out basket. Getting used it it.
Ice maker works great!
This refrigerator is amazing, or I'm assuming it is.
We originally ordered this fridge because it met the measurements our apartment complex gave us. Now, granted, I should've measured myself before just going on what they said the measurement was.
The delivery men come, and tell us we are an inch off. 1 inch.
So, we freak out and went to bestbuy and were able to get the brother to this Fridge (which was cheaper because it was on clearance and a bunch of other boring things...)
The fridge we do have is the exact same as this, but black and a little smaller and it is fantastic!
The freezer capacity is better than I believed it would be. Granted you can't put big pizza boxes in it, but that is fine. Just take it out of the box and if you must, cut out the heating directions and put it with the pizza or whatever it is that wouldn't fit.
I can't speak for the ice maker, because our complex is older and does not have the hook-up for water. (Side-note: you must but the water line for Best Buy to deliver, install and take away the old one. If you are like me and don't have a water hook-up, you can always return the water line after it gets delivered. The Best Buy person told me that, and that is what I did.)
The fridge is amazing. Being able to fit the milk jug on the door is fantastic. One of the main thing we wanted in a new fridge (apart from bottom freezer) were the solid shelves that have the lip surrounding the edge, "spill-proof", and this fridge has it, and it really does work. We had wire racks before, and not only would there be a pool of mess on the bottom shelve, the food in the fridge that was directly below what spilled, would also the a mess from the dripping. Such a nasty thing that has been solved now.
The temperature controls are digital, but not by degree. They are digital numbers 1-7 with 7 being the coldest and LED lights inside which makes it so bright inside!
BEWARE: You might be blinded when you go to the fridge for a 2 am drink because the lights are very bright.
Also, in case you were wondering, the black version we have is a smooth finish on the front, no bumps. Although for full disclosure, the sides do have the bumpy texture.
All in all: I believe we would have loved this fridge since we love the younger and smaller brother version.
FYI: The fridge totally matches our new stove. Even though they were bought at different times. Bought the Silver Fridge and the stove at the same time, fridge was too big and we went and found the smaller fridge. Which matches the stove better in my opinion.
I love the look and function of this product. The fridge has tons of space and for my tall husband he appreciates not having to duck or compromise space with a side by side. All that said, I have two small FYIs about this appliance:
1) The fruit and vegetable drawers each have a knob to adjust the humidity in the drawers. They are thin plastic pieces that stick out and are consistently getting stuck on the drawer unless you are very careful when you push it in. I'm unsure as to why you wouldn't just have a wheel instead since I can only assume this will break off in short order. A minor issue but a true design flaw for normal use. (Pic attached)
2) I wish the freezer drawer clicked or had an indicator light if it wasn't fully closed. Within the first week ours was left just the tiniest bit open over night and everything started to defrost. I feel like there should have been something in the design to help it close fully, consistently. We are more conscious of it now so we don't make that same mistake again and have had no problems since.
The beautiful fridge is so spacious for the size. Huge pullout freezer and top swing out door with clear drawers for easy view
I would recommend this to a friend

Prior to this we had an LG bottom freezer, stainless fridge that was loaded with features. Unfortunately, the LG failed twice in 8 years. My wife wanted a similar model an we came across this Whirlpool model. On-line reviews are very good for it so we gave it a shot. It was not available for viewing at our Best Buy, so this was a sight-unseen purchase. First the good - it's very efficient and relatively quiet. It works like it should and has more capacity than the LG we had. In fact, it's quite a bit larger internally than the LG despite similar exterior dimensions. The stainless finish is OK, but less fingerprint-resistant than some I've seen. Now the not-so-good - the ice maker only has the arm shutoff - the LG had a switch in addition that was a nice touch. The ice maker has no size adjustment so the cubes are what they are - you could make the LG cubes smaller or larger. The shelves and drawers are functional, but don't have the quality feel the LG's did. When you open the door and recluse it, the temperature of course inside drops again. The seal on the door is so good that my wife cannot physically open the door again until the inside temp stabilizes again due to the vacuum drawn on the door. All in all, this is a good fridge. At the price it should have a few more features and the feel of the drawer slides and shelves should be better. Ultimately I can live with that as long as it lasts. Now the really bad - the installers came and set up the fridge for us. Now you might say setup is setup. But here are my complaints; 1) they used a cordless drill to remove the door handle and hinges (needed to swap opening from left to right). Doing so really torques the screws and as a result distorted the sheet metal on the door where the fasteners were. They also broke off the plastic cover or vanity screws that cover the empty screw holes on the side without the handle. Installers should NEVER use power tools on things like exterior appliance hardware. I was out of the room at the time or would have stopped them. So I had to buy more at $20 for two tiny plastic screws. 2) they did not properly level the fridge, so the door would not close when released. So, pretty good fridge, poor installation and setup.
I have waited to review this Whirlpool refrigerator for a few months. We love it - lots of room, quiet and so much easier to access. Love the fridge on the top and the freezer on the bottom. We are in the fridge part much more than the freezer so you are not bending down all the time. We chose the black color and it has the dull shine (not like the shiny plastic look). Very happy.
The Whirlpool refrigerator does have a factory installed ice maker in the freezer compartment.
Hopefully this information is beneficial to you. Thank you for your inquiry regarding our Whirlpool appliances!
A:AnswerThe body of this Whirlpool refrigerator is 68.5 inches high. The measurement to the top of the door hinge is 69.5 inches high and goes back 6.5 inches from the face of the refrigerator. This machine is deep enough that the hinge should not impact or interfere with a standard over refrigerator kitchen cabinet but everyone's situation is different. I hope this helps.
A:AnswerIf you are not going to use the ice maker, there is a small wire "switch" that can be pushed up to disable that function. It has to have a water supply connected, although I don't have mine connected. So I just flipped the switch up.
