    Whirlpool Gold Series French Door

    By Ronthehandyman57

    Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel w/Black Sides:

    We purchased the 29.0 cubic foot French door model after owning a top freezer. We love the freezer on the bottom with the pizza storage compartment! Everything is so organized with the options of storage space. We have it separated into meats, vegetables, fruits, and breads in the freezer. The top half is just so well lit with the LED lights and has so many option to organize. We can open the door and know immediately where anything is. The ice maker is easily removable and can be turned off or on with just a flick of a switch. The outer look of the Stainless Steel French Doors is just perfect...and the patented curvy door handles are second to none. It is quiet and the air flow is just right so the refrigerator items do not freeze We absolutely love our new Whirlpool French Door Refrigerator!

    Finish is not good, scratches to easy.

    Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel w/Black Sides:

    The overall design of the fridge is good; however the poor quality of the door finish makes this a poor choice. We have had this for less than a month and there a scratches all over the doors! We also dislike that you cannot get water or ice if one of the french doors are open.

    Very happy with purchase accept this model has a smaller water filter that doesn't work as well as the larger filter in my side-by-side did. Finding calcium deposits in ice cubes.

    Our New Fridge

    By milong63

    from Tampa, FL, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel w/Black Sides:

    We recently upgraded from a 26cu to a 29 cu. Just barely made the space but all worked out great. This fridge is awesome. The efficient use of space and layout made life so much easier. I love the three drawers and party platter drawer as well as the easy reach freezer drawer. The auto pour water dispenser int he door is a great feature.

    2nd Time Charm?

    By Jay Per

    Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel w/Black Sides:

    My second attempt at this refrigerator. The first one, purchased on 6/12/12 only lasted to 1/19/15. Bad compressor and the cost to repair was $1,200. If this one breaks, we will never buy another product made by Whirlpool.

    Looks great but is pretty loud

    By gmmtxx

    Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel w/Black Sides:

    I actually bought the original unit a little over a year ago, then some problems and Whirlpool replaced my refrigerator a little over a week ago. The new refrigerator looks great and performs well but it is still loud. You can hear the unit run all over the house.

    Frost builds up inside fridge

    By RainboBrite

    from Boise, ID, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel w/Black Sides:

    If I could give this product a zero I would. We purchased this refrigerator a year ago and for the last 6 months have been dealing with frost buildup in the fridge upper left in back. We have had over 4 service calls and 2 companies come to try to fix it. Whirlpools recommended fixes now causes the door to not want to seal all the way and still frost builds up. It is very frustrating and our fridge still doesn't function properly. Save your money and don't buy this model.

    Unacceptable

    By Appliance frustrated

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel w/Black Sides:

    I purchased this refrigerator just over 2 years ago and have had nothing but problems since the warranty expired. Ice began to develop just below the housing of the ice maker unit on the inside of the refrigerator, with water intermittently dripping down the inside of the ice storage bin in the door, all just after the warranty expired. But that is not the worst of the problems. At 1 year and 8 months of age, the freezer began malfunctioning (i.e. ice cream and frozen vegetables were melting inside the freezer & the temperature was hovering around 20 degrees). I contacted the retailer, who sent their repair service. Within the last 6 months, and 5 service calls later, they have now replaced the thermistor and the compressor (10/9/14). In the last 2 days, the freezer has now begun to malfunction again (temperature is at 22+ degrees), so I will be contacting the repair service, yet again. I notice that this unit has now been discontinued, understandably.
