Customer Questions & Answers

Is this freezer noisy?

We recently purchased another brand and it is extremely noisy. Is this louder than a typical refrigerator?
Asked by: fred2000
Yes - It's very loud. At the begining, it souds very normal when the compressor kicks in but after a few months, the sound becomes far different. The strange thing is that the loudness of the motor/compressor varies depending on "who knows what" condition. My freezer is in the garage but I could hear it from inside the house.

Customer Reviews

15.8 cu. ft. Frost Free Upright Freezer in White is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 104.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep Its Cool During Power Outage We purchased this freezer in August of this year - 2011. We were impressed with how quickly it got cold. We were really impressed with how well it maintained its temperature during a recent 3-day power outage we had at the end of September 2011, just after we finished stocking it full. Not only did the alarm never even sound (only because it didn't get warm enough), but we didn't even suffer any freezer burn when the power came back on. Couldn't say the same for our new refridgerator freezer section (of another brand) which suffered a melt-down AND freezer burn.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Throw your food away now it will save you the time At some point Whirlpool used to stand behind their products, now all they seem to do is hide behind their warranties! I purchased an upright freezer back in March only to have it break less than a month later. Worse was that it was fully stocked, after going to Costco the week before, and had to throw away at least $300 worth of food. Called Home Depot where I purchased the freezer and was instructed to contact Whirlpool's warranty service department. Of course since it was brand new I just wanted a new freezer, but they informed me that they would have to send out a service tech to inspect the machine. Tech came out two days later and discovered their was a leak in the coil and that the freon had all leaked out causing the freezer to stop working. Freezer repaired I waited a couple of days to make sure it was working before restocking the freezer. Less than a month later the same thing happened, and I had to toss another $300 worth of food. This time when I spoke with someone from their solutions team, I was very adamant about wanting the freezer replaced and not repaired. However I was informed by one of their supervisors that, "Unfortunately we cannot make all of our customers happy." Needless to say I found this to be more than unprofessional for someone in the service industry. Unfortunately I had no other option and once again they sent out a service technician, not an actual Whirlpool employee, came out to look at the freezer. The tech determined that the source of the leak was in the cabinet and therefore the unit was unrepairable. He informed me that he was filing his report with Whirlpool and that I should here back from them within 24 hours as to the next step. Two days later and no phone call I get a hold of the the service company only to discover that someone at Whirlpool had overridden his diagnosis and was instructing them to come back and make another repair. I called Whirlpool once more and spoke with yet another solutions team supervisor and finally was able to have them schedule a replacement freezer. Was the delivery person on time, of course not they were two hours late and didn't even make the effort to call ahead and let me know but then why should I be surprised Whirlpool uses third parties so that they can avoid being held accountable. After all of this I call one more time to file a complaint about how my entire experience was. I ultimately asked to speak with a manager after speaking to a supervisor who could not resolve my issue in a manner I would have liked. She informed me that there was no one to speak with at the time but that she would pass my information on. I requested that they call me the following morning at 9:00 am as I would be home from work. Four days later I have not received phone call and have decided to post this instead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Toss your food..same result My 9 month old freezer died while we were out of town (of course)... was a balmy 68 degrees inside the stupid thing this afternoon when we got home..the result was a loss of over $500 worth of food. The alarm was beeping...not that we could even hear it even while upstairs (freezer is in basement). Still haven't dealt with Whirlpool..hope for some reimbursement and a different freezer. Wish I could get rid of this one altogether and not have to even have it repaired. I will never trust it again, nor will I EVER buy another product from Whirlpool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just the right size This is our 3rd supplemental freezer after an upright that died and a chest freezer that was impossible to find anything in. This one has a lot of room, is relatively quiet (no freezer of refrigerator is silent), and love that it's frost free and energy efficient.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Complete meltdown within 2 months Purchased this item less than two months ago and came home to a complete mess after work. Yes it was plugged in, and NO the door was not open. While we were throwing out an entire freezer full of meet, the freezer did not even attempt at trying to run. Luckily we have a great local distributor who we won't have any problems dealing with. I know Whirpool is a great brand and will probably buy from them again. Just wanted to ensure that Whirpool knew that there was a faulty one out there. On the positive note- I learned it was VERY easy to clean! Shelves slide out easily and there are next to no nooks and crannies to collect dirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking. I like the way the interior is set up. I also like the fact that there is a light inside. For many years I had a freezer without a light and it was like searching in a dark hole for the food. It is also quiet and there is a light on the front to let me know that it is plugged in and working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Freezer and nice space Great freezer. Great amount of space for food overflow and 20lb bags of ice. I hunt and make food in batches so it works great and keeps food frozen with ease. I was not sure about the size at first, kept thinking if I should go bigger, but I have a family of 3 and enough food in this freezer to live for months and room to store the thanksgiving turkey. The size works great in my garage. Overall so far very satisfied with the product. Also, in my opinion I found that the standup freezer lets you see and get to everything much quicker than the chest styles that I have used.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent overall This upright freezer was received brand new in May 2013 by July 2013 the freezer's timer malfunctioned and frosted the entire interior. We got it serviced through warranty and it has been working fine since. Other than the initial issue above the freezer works as expected. Pros: Freezes foods quickly. Frost free. Tight seal on door. Large storage space including in the door. Sliding Wire basket at bottom. Cons: Wire shelves are not adjustable. Not compact. No lock. Overall, decent product.
