"Very Nice" medium size refrige

By Mzriz

from Long Island NY

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

Very pleased with it. Purchased 6 weeks ago. It looks nice, not bulky at all. I wasn't looking for all the bells and whistles of other models I don't mind filling an ice tray myself.

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

this is the worst refrigerator I have ever had in my possession. If I knew then what I know now when I purchased this, I would have looked for something else. Shelving inside is awful, inside spacing of shelves is just as bad. The freezer door is so low that you pretty much have to get on your knees to see what's on the top shelf, and I'm a short person! The door shelves have this cheap metal rail that holds nothing in. Larger bottles fall off the shelf when you close the door. The rail sizes do not match the shelf in size. I HATE THIS REFRIGERTOR! I paid a lot of money for this thing and now I'm stuck with it..........

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

    We got this model for our house. It replaced an 80s fridge that kept up phenomenally. When we turned it on, it seemed to take forever to get cold. The shelves misted up and wouldn't ever go clear, so they were always damp (still are). The sales place said that the more stuff in the fridge, the better for cooling. We eventually got it to get cold, but the control is in the fridge part and also controls the freezer. When it's ideal for the fridge, ice cream melts and nothing stays frozen. When it's colder so ice cream is solid, it destroys the food in the fridge. We've lost countless dollars worth of food from frozen lettuce, tomatoes, and other produce and have had milk and other liquids freeze solid. In a few months, after a couple repairs on this brand new fridge, they finally just replaced it with an identical model. The replacement is no better. The cold control is a joke, the shelves and door are CHEAP, and after hundreds of cycles of ice, the ice still tastes horrible and actually scares me to consume. The fridge has had no odor, but from day one the ice has tasted like plastic/chemicals and I've seen several other online complaints about this. Guests have told us their drinks tasted funny and I worry about my health. It ruins any drink you put ice in by overpowering it with a chemical flavor. The idiotic design is infuriating as well. Instead of countersinking the light in the fridge, it's in a HUGE clear plastic piece that hangs down into the fridge, rendering the top shelf useless, as it's too low to even slide a pop or milk container from one side to the other. You have to put shorter items in the center and tall on the sides, which makes it impossible to get to what you want without removing what's in front of it. I can't even get a Dr. Pepper bottle (2 liter) to fit, so I have to put it in the door. If they'd made 1/2" more between "ceiling" and top shelf, it'd fit. Our old fridge had great glass shelves that allowed items to be slid around as needed but you can't hope to do that here. The meat drawer also hangs down, making the 2nd shelf 1/2 useless. The door is cheap and butter and cheese fall out of the doored shelf all the time because it doesn't stay down nor does it have enough room to really hold them well. I HATE this fridge and am so upset it's even on the market. A big purchase like this after 3 decades of using our old one should be fun and exciting and a relief to the wallet (Energy Star, etc) AND a relief in general. Instead, I want to slam the door every time I use the piece of garbage!

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

        This is a wonderfully simple machine which comes in black or white. The doors are also interchangeable opening form the left or the right. The interior has plenty of room for the needs of a small family and has adjustable glass shelves. The top freezer also has plenty of room for your frozen foods. Does not come with an ice maker but the option is available. Truly a nice priced fridge to fit your budget.

            We needed a second refrigerator, and this one seemed to fit the bill...plenty of freezer and fresh food spaces. Unfortunately the first one delivered had a flaw in the molding which prevented a good seal from forming, so we had lots of problems with fresh food freezing. Our replacement is fantastic!

            Very Disappointed

            By Chipper

            from Undisclosed

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

            We bought this refrigerator to replace a 17 year old Whirlpool of the same size that died in August of 2011. Quality of all the sliding drawers is very poor. The full width pantry drawer does not stay on its tracks and is made of very cheap plastic. Constantly falls off the tracks, basically useless. There is only one adjustment for temperature, which is suppose to control the freezer and the refrigerator compartments at the same time. Problem is that if you want the ice-cream to be frozen you end up freezing the food in the refrigerator compartment. Our old fridge could hold two one gallon jugs n the door, this one can't. Very disappointed in the quality and features.
