Nice for a one person home
from Cottonwood, AZ
Comments about Whirlpool 19.7 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Monochromatic Stainless Steel:
It's good for a one person home only, anything larger and it's just too small. However, the water filter holder cover design is terrible. After 6 months I had to have it repaired and that still didn't fix the problem of the cover not staying shut. It has to be repaired again. I won't ever buy a refrigerator with that style of water filter holder again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Very good refrigerator, with very minor design flaws
By Queen Maeve
I bought this refrigerator because it was the only one on the market that fit the space I had and which had a bottom freezer designed so that the upper tray pulled out automatically when I opened the freezer compartment. I am disabled, and cannot bend over to pull out a drawer, so this was a very important feature. I like this refrigerator very much, but it would be a much better unit if Whirlpool made just 2 design changes. First, there is more than an inch of wasted space between the shelves in the refrigerator and the doors. If the shelves were slightly deeper, you would gain a little more more storage space. More storage space is always a good thing, even if it is just a few inches here and there. Second, the fold-away shelf is very nice, but it would work better if the fold-away portion was on the other side of the shelf, since most people open the right-hand door first, but if you want to use the fold-away shelf to store tall items such as a bottle of wine, you can only access the tall items by opening the left door, which effectively opens both doors. Alternatively, Whirlpool could make the fold-away shelf in 2 sections - one that folds away on the left, and a narrower one that folds-away on the right, and the consumer could use either or both to accommodate their lifestyle. If these changes were made, I would give this model 5 stars and rate it as one of the best smaller refrigerators on the market. I do not use the water dispenser, so I can't comment on that. The ice maker works quite well, but is not really designed for disabled people. To make the ice maker work more conveniently for disabled people the on/off lever would have to be closer to the front of the unit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
A couple of issues...but fixed
from Eaton, CO
My new Whirlpool frig developed a very annoying left door squeak & the ice maker wasn't producing much ice if any. I called Manweiler Appliance (where I bought it) & they sent a repairman right out. He fixed the squeaky door & told me how to get the ice maker to work until her could get the new part. I had to be sure the top drawer in the freezer compartment was pushed clear back then I had to be sure the ice maker arm (on off) was in the on position when I closed the freezer drawer. Kind of a hassle but the new ice maker came in that same week & was replaced. Not something you'd expect with a brand new frig!!

I bought this a month ago. It works really well except the doors do not open all of the way. They only open up about two thirds of the way. Also, any tall items like salad dressing bottles have to go inside and do not fit on the door.
Worst Refrigerator I ever bought
from Wayne, NJ
This is by far the worst refrigerator I have ever bought! The ice maker bar keeps coming out so then it constantly makes ice and overflows!!!! The freezer is poorly designed and is not big enough! The door hinges broke the first week we had the refrigerator because of all the plastic parts used, repair man said not to worry about the broken plastic since the door still closed, it has been a year since then and now the door wont even close!!!!
Replacing a GE lemon
We have had the model for one week. The ice maker and water dispenser work well. The refrigerator default temperature was a little too warm for us, so we increased the setting by one. We like the fold away shelf and the options for storage in the drawers. No problems yet.

"Excellent Kitchen Use"
from Vaughn MT
The glass shelves are perfect for viewing inside for the products needed and the slide out features are great. Love the freezer layout and the ice tray. The outside is a compliment to the kitchen.
HAD TO RE-PLACE ONE OF THE FRENCH DOORS AS ARIVVED WITH A SCRATCH, BUT THE COMPANY THAT THEY CONTRACT WITH ARE WONDERFUL. IT TAKES A LITTLE WHILE TO GET USE TO THE INSIDE AND WERE TO PUT STUFF AS MOST OF THE SHELVES YOU CANT MOVE, BUT OTHER THAN THAT I LOVE IT, GREAT LOOKING, AND PERFECT SIZE FOE SMALL SPACES, BUT YET VERY ROOMY INSIDE.
from Clearwater, Fl.
The right style. 30" is just the right size for my small galley kitchen. Love the way it opens. Easy to get at my fresh food without always bending down and trying to find what is in the bottom of the fridge. Easier to clean in the fresh food area. Filtered water on the door is a bonus. Ice maker a plus. Did have to wait (about 8 weeks) for order because of back orders at the factory but worth the wait.
