Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 102 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Freezer, Great Value This freezer is in our garage, but even then I've noticed that it is very quiet. It shuts off when the right temperature is reached (it doesn't constantly run like other freezers do when people have complained about the noise). The door seals really well. It's the perfect size. I wish it had an external and/or internal temperature gauge, but I bought one for the interior for under $10. Other than that, this freezer suits us perfectly. I also purchased the 5-year protection plan - price was very reasonable and gives me added peace of mind. November 4, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 6, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent performance From my purchase and ownership of a washer, dryer, refrigerator through the years they have more than exceeded my expectations in quality, design, performance and durability. The servicemen and salesmen are all professional and take their time to answer any questions about the products they sell. This is a huge factor. They're not only knowledgeable but they also believe in their products. I would advise anyone shopping to make Whirlpool their first and last stop. They need look no further for purchasing the best product that will ensure they have spent their money wisely. December 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It has great features and they work as advertised. Over all this is a great freezer. It is very quiet and works extremely well. Would recommend this product to family and friends. December 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet from day one. I only know that it's working because I can see the red indicator light on. Nice spacing between shelves and the large basket in the lower bin is just what I was looking for. I bought this to replace a chest model and now I can see what's in it as soon as I open the door, no more digging for items. Great product at a reasonable price. December 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet and Reliable We have had our freezer for three months. It is quiet - I have a relatively new refrigerator in the basement and you can always hear that running, but I have to check that the freezer is working, it's so quiet. Keeps all items frozen, from juices to pizzas to meat. December 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product 22 years ago we bought our Whitlpool washer and dryer and had it many years with only a few fixes! Bought a Whirlpool gas stove 19 years ago and it's still in use. So when we needed a freezer we did not hesitate to get another Whirlpool! We bought a 16 cubic foot upright and we are very satisfied. Thank you Whirlpool! December 9, 2014
