        Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - White Ice:

        Don't be fooled by the sleek look of this refrigerator. It has been nothing but problems. That is probably why it is discontinued. The ice maker froze up and now doesn't work at all, the doors leak water every time you open them, the freezer is not cold enough and it is begining to rust inside. All these problems started right after the two year warranty expired. I have tried several reapir companies, but none of them want to work on this model. Whirpool denies any issues. I guess they don't read the reviews. Way to stand behind your product. Save yourself the time and money and avoid this product :(

              I love the freezer in the bottom and it has enough room with the separate drawer. The refrigerator has plenty of room in it also. Love the refrigerator. I had to get use to the sounds it makes.

                    I put up with water leaking from the ice dispenser, but I guess I shouldn't have. After that, I noticed rust on the metal parts of the ice bin (dispensing/crushing blades) which means I get to eat rusty ice. Then at almost exactly 2 years, the freezer stopped working. Apparently there's a block in the coils. I had it repaired, but it happened again 4 months later. The freezer was "fixed" again, but I was told the fix may only be temporary (because they can't remove the clog in the coils). In the end, I have an unreliable freezer and a damaged laminate floor due to all the leaking water from the ice maker and freezer defrosting when it stopped working (twice, so far). I called Whirlpool and all I got was, "You're out of warranty." DO NOT BUY FROM WHIRLPOOL. I'd sue for the floor damage if I had more money, but now I have to buy another refrigerator with a working freezer.

                                I bought this two month ago. I m very unhappy with it and whirlpool. The Refrigerator stop work. I call Whirloop they told me to contact this bay appliance. He came out and look at it. Then order three parts. When the parts came he mad appointment for 3 OF JULY to install them. After he install them. He told me I would have to wait 24 hours.To see if it was FIX. I call him told him it was not fixed. He told me call to whirloop. So I did. They said he was just a part changer. They said to call Aries appliance. He came out look at it to diagnose the problem. He said to watch the refrigerator for 24 hour. Whatever he adjusted didn't work. I call them! They order to parts. I do not know when it will be fix. This has been going for five or six week. The Refrigerator was only about two months old. When it was not fix the first time. It should have been replaced with a new one. I figure it costing me about a 100 or more a day. And Whirioop dose not care what cost me. In time lost and money.

                                      It certainly does the job. Not sure I like the French doors.in the way to put things on counter next to frig. Really like the automotive finish on the front. Freeze shelf squeaks when pulling out or pushing shut. Freezer Doesn't seem to hold that much.

                                            I had troubles in firs few months, and it never worked well no matter what was tried.
                                            Leaking ice maker, No Ice and Warm Freezer, needed disconnecting and defrosting every couple months.
                                            Fried Compressor - Replaced
                                            Bad circulation in Evaporator - Replaced
                                            Now very noisy with replaced components.
                                            After repair, continued problems with frost/ice build up around evaporator blocking drawers, now back to warm freezer and no ice within months. Now replacing Thermistor.
                                            Support was to "Try" in home fixing on a lemon. Ok, I get it, worth a try... but When I finally said enough is enough, just replace it, customer service is claiming it is now "out of warranty." I never had a year of good operation from this, and Whirlpool is not fully standing behind their product warranty. This is terrible. I feel like they played a delay game to gain leverage against a customer. Really? I should have been a bug early on, instead of being a nice guy. No wonder people are conditioned to become squeaky wheels. A worst experience with an appliance and company. Unbelievable!

                                            I found a few similar review examples like mine on-line with this model. Unacceptable design and behavior.

                                                  There are so very many refrigerators on the market with similar features. And now there are also models focused on options for adjustability and customization. In the end, I decided on this product for the French doors and lower access freezer compartment. So far, it has been a great part of the new home.

                                                        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.......
