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!
We purchased this refrigerator to replace our old Whirlpool and we love it. We are not into the fancy refrigerators and I specifically wanted the bottom freezer, with the single door top fridge in black (I did not want the stainless steel black). Whirlpool was one of the few that sold this style fridge in all black. Also, this fridge has the same shelving configuration as our old one, which was a huge plus!
A little early to rate this. Ask me 6 months from now. A year even. But so far we're happy with the product. Great size. Versatile shelving. Like how the shelves are completely changeable. Our previous fridge had the same capability, but less movable shelves. The noises this makes takes a little getting use to. Hopefully these noises are normal. Everything is cold or frozen as they should be. Nice looking fridge. Not the color we wanted, but because of the lack of product available (because of covid-19) and not wishing to wait months for the color/finish we wanted, we picked the stainless steel.
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.
I like this style refrigerator. The size is good for a family of 4. On this model the freezer pull out drawer feels flimsy and is a wire pull out basket. I prefer a solid piece. The overall quality is average.
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.
