Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jano beware the poor look of the finish
Although I would have been very happy with this simple refrigerator, the front black finish always looks like it has big water spots all over it. It is from the plastic wrap that is put on too early after being finished at the manufacturer. Whirlpool knows about it and does not warn the consumer. I contacted them and learned these facts. I could have returned it but don't have another frig to hold items while waiting and can't take another day off work. Home Depot was wonderful at negotiating with Whirlpool to refund $75 dollars but I think others should be warned that this is how yours will look from the day it is brand new. Sad.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MidwestFamilyofSix Great, affordable refrigerator!
We have 4 children, and this refrigerator is perfect for our family. We searched everywhere for the best deal, and this was it. The shelves are sturdy enough, the milk storage in the door frees up so much space! The deli drawer and produce drawers are a decent size. Looks very nice, it is a flat finish which makes it easy to clean. Paired with the free delivery and haul-away, you can't beat it! Very happy.

I have had nothing but grief with this purchase particularly with having the door swing changed I now have holes in my fridge scratches where the whirlpool emblem was all I get is the run around I am exhausted dealing with it. Whirlpool's solution is to send me plugs that don't fit and touch up paint for me to use myself. All damage done by install guys.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Planlib It looks great in our kitchen
I don't like the fact that there is NO light in the freezer box. I bought it on line, but even if it had been in the store, there is not a way to tell that there is NO light! There is no easy place to store ice, if you don't get the ice maker accessory.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Southernlady1 This fridge is very spacious, I love the climate control veggie & fruit bins.
Spacious, ample storage & eloquent looking. I purchased on line with ease. The delivery was timely & professional. This was a wise, good value purchase. To my on line purchase I added an ice maker that is wonderful, it makes ice galore & fast.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Janet Whirlpool knows that they have this issue
Bought in March 2014. Removed plastic protective wrap to find the finish is permanently damaged with a water spot look that is caused by the wrapping. The ruined finish does not appear in the one inch section under the handle where there was no wrap. The minute you touch the front with a plasma TV screen cloth, you have substantial scratches. Whirlpool admitted knowing that the front can not be fixed. I can return it but do not have another frig to move to and can't take another day off work. The inside is set up poorly making it hard to have any large soda bottle or more than one milk and I certainly worry about the lightweight plastic drawers lasting. Avoid this refrigerator or other items from Whirlpool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Margie Good choice for a big fridge in a small kitchen
After a month of operation, this refrigerator is working very well and seems to be much quieter than our previous model. The very convenient configuration of door shelves gets the gallon of milk and wine bottles off the interior shelves, which is great, and there is a lot of room in the freezer too. The single temperature setting for fridge and freezer seems not to be a problem. My only caveat is that the back of the lowest shelf is very hard to reach or clean, due both to its low height off the floor and the bins hanging above it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nanccee Works for my situation
Simple practical, no bells and whistles. No light in the freezer. Freezer shelves are skinnier than normal so can't put much in them. I was told this will last as long as a $3000 refrig and with less problems. Good for the price but when I bought this for $719, that was the sale price that expired weeks ago. Looks like they keep running the same promo. The energy efficiency is on the low end, i.e. if est. yearly op. costs run $44-56, this costs $55. Runs quieter than Kenmore.
Re: warranties. I ordered this 10 days before I had it delivered because I was doing repairs on my house. If you have a problem, you can get free repair 30 days from date of PURCHASE, not date of DELIVERY. Fortunately, nothing major happened, just minor checkup. Only had this less than a month, but so far so good.
