    Comments about Whirlpool 18.5 Cu. Ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator - Black:

    Came pre-installed in my house and the size is just right for my come and go lifestyle. I do wish it had an ice maker though. Quality seems to be good. The design is simple but it gets the job done.

    Perfect for our family

    Comments about Whirlpool 18.5 Cu. Ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator - Black:

    We replaced our stainless steel refrigerator with this model and I am very happy with it! The space is perfect; the color is perfect (keeping stainless steel fingerprint free is impossible!). This refrigerator is super quiet.

    Very Unhappy New Owner

    Comments about Whirlpool 18.5 Cu. Ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator - Black:

    Unfortunately, this refrigerator was unavailable to see at our local hardware and appliance stores, so we purchased it based on online descriptions. The biggest limitation to our shopping choices was that we had to get something to fit the space we have available. The refrigerator is just okay. The design is poor. Inside, there is a wide, deep track above the top shelf that blocks anything very tall from being stored on that shelf underneath the track. The freezer door is so big and the bottom edge so low that we have to bend down to see anything in the refrigerator, even the top shelf. Because the big freezer door is lower than normal, it's easy to end up bumping your head on it. You just don't expect a door edge down so far. We have the simplest model, no ice maker, so the freezer space is particularly large. On top of our major disappointment with the design of this refrigerator (which replaced an older Whirlpool model we really liked), we have had screeching sounds coming from it since the day it was delivered. Even though we purchased an extended warranty, the problem has not been fixed. We've been told it is a bad fan, and both fans in the refrigerator (one in the freezer, one towards the bottom of the refrigerator) have been replaced and yet we endure this screeching sound to this day. We are hoping it can be fixed, of course, but the service company is not being responsive right now. The screeching is metallic, and very, very loud, audible throughout the entire house. This screeching occurs at least once every hour, sometimes more, and it lasts anywhere from a minute to many minutes. It is the kind of sound that goes right through you. We expected a Whirlpool refrigerator that we would have for the next 15 or more years. This one is not only disappointing, but sounds like it's in its death throes every day. We have no idea if our food is being kept at the correct temperature with the fan not operating correctly. We have never experienced such difficulties with a major appliance and getting what should be a simple repair done. For that matter, we never expected a brand new refrigerator to need repairing from the very first day it was installed.

    Disappointed

    By Theresa71

    from Manitoba, Canada

    Comments about Whirlpool 18.5 Cu. Ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator - Black:

    When we purchased this refrigerator we thought that here was one more adjustable shelf after much confusion we found out there was not. We did not want a bottom mounted freezer and we found that we had very few choices available. Whirlpool is a good name but not overall pleased with the is product.

    Came with new build

    Comments about Whirlpool 18.5 Cu. Ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator - Black:

    The fridge appears to be a good size, but after trying to put groceries away, I find that the functionality is lacking. The shelves don't configure well and I lose a lot of space. My last fridge (Another brand) was a base model also, and it had a much better design internally.
