The temperature will reach down to approximately -10 (f). When the freezer is first started, the compressor will run
constantly until the cabinet is cooled. It may take 6 to 8 hours (or
longer), depending on room temperature and the number of times
the freezer lid is opened.
After the cabinet is cooled, the compressor will turn on and off as

The outside of your freezer may feel warm. This is normal. The
freezer’s design and main function is to remove heat from the
contents and air inside the freezer. The heat is transferred to the
room air, making the outside of the freezer feel warm. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool home appliance.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nice freezer, BAD baskets This is a nice freezer; however, the three baskets are undersized, continually fall down below and are difficult to retrieve. They are very cheap, plastic instead of wire. I tried calling customer service at Whirlpool in hopes of buying different baskets, but nothing is available. I also tried finding universal baskets but can't find the size I need. Therefore, despite the quality of the freezer, I'm giving this a POOR rating. If the manufacturer had been willing to sell me new baskets that fit properly, it would be a different story. I've noticed that other people have had the same problem. September 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice and big Very happy really big fits everything September 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Freezer for Price We are very pleased with this freezer. It is efficient and very economical. The only con is the baskets are plastic and bulky...wire baskets would have been perfect. August 26, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap I haven't had the freezer very long yet (1 month) but it seems to freeze well so far. It already has frost built up. Not sure if that is a normal thing that happens right off the bat. Also, the 3 included baskets are junk. They don't slide easily, constantly fall down to the freezer below anytime they are moved, which you have to do to get to the bottom. VERY annoying. I am considering returning the item for this reason alone. October 22, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Baskets too small The three baskets inside the freezer are too small and fall down inside the freezer. We contacted the dealer who ordered three more baskets from Whirlpool but they also were too small. The dealer is still trying to come up with a solution for us. December 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great freezer for the money Very happy with our purchase; has lots of space, handy baskets that are easily removed if you choose, great quality for the money December 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pleanty of room and Efficient. We bought this model because we anticipate using it to store a side of beef, a lamb or other prepared meats as well as storing garden produce that is suitable for freezing. The lighting is very good, the 3 baskets help keep frequent things on top and it is very quiet. We put it in our basement. It was a real challenge for the 2 delivery men to get it down there but they did an excellent job and it suffered no damage at all. I like the temp warning buzzer also. It is well finished and appears to be of good quality. We have had it running for a month or so and no problems at all. November 10, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I am happy with 21.7 cu. Ft. capacity & good styling I bought this freezer over 6 weeks ago and am happy with the quiteness when operating and how fast it freezes products put in for storage. I also like the safety feature it will sound alarm when and/if Temperatues rises above certain level to prevent spoilage if unit ever did have malfunction. August 25, 2014
