Ok for value

Comments about Whirlpool Side-by-Side Refrigerator:

Not the best on the market but probably not the worst either...wouldn't buy again though.

Noise Level
A noisy when making ice...lots of water filling noise. Would be nice if there was a way they could have dampened that a little more.

Interior Organization
Plenty of room to store just about everything neatly and in a tidy fashion. I hate having to move things to get to other things.

Temperature Control
Kept a normal temp range...liked that it didn't turn the ice cream to a rock yet kept the ice cubes solid and not a clear liquid version of ice.

Ease of Cleaning
Liked the ease of cleaning the shelves...clear always makes it easier to clean.

Durability
Good...though I don't plan to replace again for awhile.

Design
Over all the design is good, with a few minor flaws like how loud the ice machine part is. It has all the necessary components of a good refrigerator a it definitely fit into our budget in a way that we felt we got plenty of perks for what we spent. This is the third time we have purchased Whirlpool appliances and they hold up well.

Not as good as I hoped for.

By 

from USA

Comments about Whirlpool Side-by-Side Refrigerator:

i bought a Whirlpool hoping to get a quality product. The shelving lacks different combinations. The ice maker in the door jammed and I had to run my arm up the ice maker to remove a lodged piece of ice that had caused the ice maker to quit working just prior to a get together we were having so I barely had enough ice fro the party. The ice maker is also noisy. On another occasion right after purchase, the ice maker also froze up inside the door panel. I had to use Youtube and found our that taking a hair dryer to it and heating the frozen line in the door will unthaw it, I turned the temperature up a couple of degrees and not had a problem since. Apparently there is not enough insulation foam in the door to keep it from freezing up. I also keep the ice maker on the fast setting to make ice quicker because it takes forever if you don't.

Noise Level
The ice maker is noisy.

Interior Organization
Not many options to move shelving to.

Temperature Control
My ice maker in the door froze up and I had to turn the freezer temp up to prevent this.

Ease of Cleaning
Smooth front wipes clean easy.

The freezer is to small with the ice cube maker. The plastic parts on the door of the refrigerator are weak and break easily. Need to replace the whole door to get it fixed.

It is maily quiet

Interior Organization
Freezer is to small

No problems here.

Ease of Cleaning
The glass shelves are hard to keep clean

Durability
to many cheap plastic parts.

Design
Icemaker needs to be redesigned.

Lovely product

By 

from USA

Comments about Whirlpool Side-by-Side Refrigerator:

Energy efficient, great design and spacious. I bought this after I had moved from a small home to a bigger one, which serves the need of a bigger family I was in. It is almost silent, does not make any noise. Very easy to clean, no mess. The ice compartment is very well designed and easy to use. The door has spacious and well thought out compartments work perfectly for quick and small things. The design is beautiful, fits well with the rest of my appliances and the overall decor of my house. The compartments are very flexible and can be rearranged with ease depending on the items you wish to use it for. The price is decent, not too high which makes the deal even better. It takes up a lot of space, but that's basically what you are paying for, ie., a huge spacious refrigerator. You need to have a huge kitchen to accommodate this one. There were quite a few design options to choose from, hence for the picky ones you wont be disappointed. All you need in a refrigerator.

Amazing prodduct

Comments about Whirlpool Side-by-Side Refrigerator:

I love this fridge. This fridge is spacious and works well. It has got room for everything. The shelves are adjustable and are glass, not plastic. It has a great freezer too. The icemaker is in the door which gives more space in the freezer to store food

Good to us

Comments about Whirlpool Side-by-Side Refrigerator:

We moved into Avery old trailer about six years ago. The older couple we were buying the trailer from was very generous to provide the home with a few new appliances. One of those appliances included this Whirlpool refrigerator. I was not too thrilled with the color, but it did compliment the kitchen. I was impressed with the few extra features it offered. The removable plastic wine holder is one of my favorites. The ice maker and water dispenser have always worked great besides the occasional leak from the hose inside the refrigerator side. Both sides have always stayed at a consistent temperature. It has been quiet and reliable. A few of shelves have broken slightly along the tracks, but still hold and slide. The freezer is a little small for our family, but with ability to move shelves and racks has allowed us to manage. The ice maker can be a little on the loud side at times, while in use, but it's not constant. This refrigerator has required very little maintenance and has never let us down.

Whirlpool Gold GSF26C4EXY Side-by-Side

By 

from Mountain Grove, MO

Comments about Whirlpool Side-by-Side Refrigerator:

I love this fridge! My only complaint with this fridge is the icemaker seems slow. This is the first fridge I've owned with an icemaker, so I don't have a lot to compare it to. Because of that I'm wondering if maybe all icemakers are similar. It's spacious, works well, has room for everything, and I haven't had any problems with it. I've never had a problem putting any leftovers away or putting groceries up. Always seems like there is space for everything. The shelves are adjustable and are glass, not plastic. It has a great freezer too. I love that the icemaker is in the door leaving more space in the freezer to store food. Overall I really love this fridge.

Noise Level
The noise level is low. Hardly notice it's there unless it's filling water to the icemaker.

Interior Organization
This fridge is fabulous inside. Lots of room for everything. The shelves are adjustable. The freezer is particularly spacious since the icemaker is in the door and doesn't take up freezer space. I always have room for everything.

Temperature Control
The temperature control is very good. I've never had any problems with keeping food at the right temperature. It has easy controls so you can set and check the temps on the freezer and the fridge.

Ease of Cleaning
Everything about the fridge is accessable and easy to clean. Love the glass shelving instead of plastic.

Durability
It has worked great from the moment we plugged it in! Works like a champ. I've had it about 8 months now. No complaints. I always associate durability and quality with Whirlpool and have always loved their products.

Design
Love the design. It's nice to look at as well as functional. I love the icemaker being in the door to create more space in the freezer. It's sleek and attractive. I love the side by side design. I would choose this over a French door fridge any day.
