    The only problem I have, is that the filters last sometimes five months and most of the time only two months and the ice is slow to make

    We have had this Whirpool product for about two months now and couldn't be more pleased. We replaced all our appliances with Whirlpool products and have been extremely pleased this far.

    NOT RELIABLE.

    By DonB178

    Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel with Black Sides:

    I bought a Whirlpool Model WRF989SDAM00 in November 2012. The appliance quit working in August 2013 (not cooling or freezing properly) and it took a month for repairs to be made under manufacturer's warranty. Based on this experience I purchased an extended warranty. The appliance quit cooling or freezing properly again in July 2014. A repair was attempted (fan motor replaced) without success in early August. In addition the icemaker now has quit working altogether. One repairman said the refrigerant probably needed to be recharged. Another repairman ran a diagnostics check and determined the appliance needed a new evaporator, which should be installed tomorrow. I have used Whirlpool appliances for more than 40 years and generally have found them to be reliable. This one, however, appears to be a lemon. If it were the first Whirlpool appliance I had purchased it would also have been the last. I posted an earlier negative review that was removed by Whirlpool because I apparently posted it under the wrong model number.

    we have had this for 3 months now and the seal is coming undone and the doors don't close very well the left door sticks out a little more so it looks like it is not closed all the time. tried 4 times to put picture in

    Worst refigerator ever.... Looks nice but.....

    By eak427

    from Monroe, GA, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel with Black Sides:

    We purchased this refrigerator in the black ice color and had the first one delivered in June 2014, it can in all dented up. 2nd one was delivered and it was dented also, ice was building up in the freezer, 3rd one was delivered..... it had ice building up in the freezer and the deli drawer wouldn't stay closed, it would be open every time you opened the doors. We have had several attempts at bringing out the same refrigerator, to no avail and all with the same issues as previously mentioned. We didn't realize we would have these issues with Whirlpool, as in our last home that was all we had. Needless to say, we have contacted our retailer and have selected a different manufacturer in refrigerators, as the luck we were having, we didn't feel it was worth even trying a different model.

    Bought 3 months ago based on design and size, but disappointed on the noise level. Also bought the electric range and dishwasher which seem OK

    Wonderful features on our new French Door Refrigerator!

    By Robert B

    from Byron, MN, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel with Black Sides:

    We had a fairly new freezer/refrigerator side by side. It was OK but my wife started a new diet with her eating lots of vegetables and fruit and we never had enough room for everything. I got tired of trying to find things in the refrigerator and when we had company we never had enough room for all our cold salads and dishes. We purchased the new Whirlpool French Door Refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom and we absolutely love everything about our new refrigerator! We never run out of room and the bottom freezer is so roomy and easy to find our frozen foods. Just love the compartments on the top shelf as so convenient for storing frozen food in boxes. The many compartments with humidity controls in the refrigerator are fantastic and we love the meat and cheese compartment. Best appliance purchase we have every made by far! An A++++ to Whirlpool for a wonderful design.

    Looks are not everything

    By Wadeskee

    from Fontana, CA, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel with Black Sides:

    I purchased this fridge 12 months ago. It replaced another Whirlpool fridge we had for over 15 years. This fridge looks really nice and complements our kitchen quite well but that's where compliments ends. the Fridge does not make and hold enough ice. It does not dispense enough chilled water. The ice maker leaked after 8 months but service came out and replaced the gasket. Today's fridges are not build the same as they were 15 years age.

    Nothing but noise, ice build up, freezer coil icing over, and rust.

    Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel with Black Sides:

    This refrigerator has been a nightmare. Nothing but noise, ice build up, freezer coil icing over, and rust. Now I am researching on the best way to fix and salvage it. Only 1.5 years old. Been like this almost from day one.

    great refrigerator

    By Donald 70

    from Marengo Iowa

    Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel with Black Sides:

    I really like this refrigerator .French doors with water and ice in the door is a nice feature. This is the first bottom mount freezer I have owned and I love it. This 29 cubic foot size has plenty of space and the shelving setup is nice. I like the way the icemaker is mounted in the door leaving a lot of refrigerator space inside I have always liked Whirlpool products.
