        Not even 2 years old and it has been serviced 7-9 times due to major issues! Had to buy extra warranty plans, and it just broke again! Water leaking from the ceiling getting everything wet in frig, ice maker has half melted ice, and the compressor in the freezer has gone out twice...on a frig that is only a year and a half old! We had to buy a back up frig/freezer for the garage due to the frig not working randomly! Worst frig ever!

              I stsarted out with a 22cf I was looking for a great buy and I saw this for the size was awesome and the features are easy and fast to learn. My only complant is the ice maker is small even with fast ice settig it produces slow ice. I have so much space in my new frig it looks empty. Freezer space is a little small but everything fits. the lighting on this frig is awesome.......

                    A new refrigerator just about as great as a new car. We could not wait for our new fridge to arrive. We upgraded from a side by side and are thrilled we did. It's amazing the difference in storage space transitioning into the french door style. We also love the look of this fridge- very sleek and modern and have received several complements.

                                Not recommended at all. Love the features and the look, but this fridge is full of problems. Ice maker has been replaced twice, and still stops working. Have had repair techs out 7 times already. Water drips from the top all of the time and down the door, onto the floor. Freezer quit and there wasn't even a fix so tech jerry-rigged it. It has stopped working again… Lost more frozen foods, ice maker also not working again. The problems are constant. Not worth spending any of your money on. Look elsewhere ~ away from this headache of an appliance.

                                      Thank goodness we purchased the extended warranty. This Whirlpool refrigerator has been a "lemon" from the beginning. It was obviously put on the market before all the bugs were worked out of it. The ice maker quit working a few times. Then the freezer was malfunctioning. We had repairmen at our house so many times they are now coming to our family reunion! I'm afraid to say it's fixed.

                                                  The first one I recieved, the compartments would not fit on the door. After 5 weeks of waiting for parts, the owner of the store gave me a new fridge.(said he could get that faster than the parts) The new one has a frosting issue in the freezer. Now I have to wait for the parts to fix that. It also NEVER stops running. I only see me getting my money back and getting something new. Unfortunate because I love the look and thought Whirlpool was a top brand to buy.

                                                              Bought this fridge in April 2013. It sat at the store until the end of May when we got our house. Worked good until recently and is now not freezing and barely cooling. I bought a 4 year extended warranty at purchase luckily. Tech will be out in a couple days but I already did some troubleshooting at his request and most likely the fridge is shot. Tech said this model has a major problem with the "sealed" cooling system leaking Freon which is why I have a 2" circle of ice on the back wall of the freezer. Odds are I will have to fight with the store and/or Whirlpool to get a new one. I can honestly say I don't want another whirlpool at this point and should have bought another brand originally. I have owned Whirlpool appliances for many years and up until now they have been great. This one is only 2 years old and has had a catastrophic failure. Not what I expected when paying well over $2,000 for it.
