          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am not happy with this refrigerator . The design of the inside is so different from the one that broke down. The freezer door shelving, does not have a bottom so most items slide out the bottom. I always buy Whirlpool products so I am REALLY DISAPPOINTMENT!

            The Whirlpool 21.3 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator in Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel, Model #WRT511SZDM was the latest iteration of a 17 year old model that finally gave up the ghost. After many years of not having auto ice/cold water in the door, this model suited our needs exactly. A no frills workhorse that I hope will last just as long as its predecessor. We are very happy with the Whirlpool Refrigerator product we purchased. It is roomy, praciticle, functional and easy to clean. The space has been utilized efficiently. This model is particularly quiet and has all the benefits of a spacious refrigerator and fits well in the designated refrigerator space in the kitchen. We cannot say enough good things about the Whirlpool brand or the product. Built to function efficiently and built to last. Highly recommend.

            freezer door shelves
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] i have had this refrigerator for 2-1/2 weeks, and absolutely DO NOT like it. The space between the end of the shelf and bracket on the door is approximately 2" wide. This causes boxes to fall through this space unless several stuffed/jammed in together to hold them in place. I definitely would not recommend this refrigerator.

              Decent enough
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This refrigerator replaced its 2007 version of the same size. This model is an inch+ deeper, but otherwise about the same dimensions and cubic feet of storage. -So far the temperature in both compartments is well-regulated and consistent. -The fingerprint-resistant stainless finish is terrific! No smudges with daily use so far. -The freezer setting dial is in the freezer - previous had both controls in the same place in the fridge, making adjustments more convenient. -This meat/cheese drawer is disappointingly small. One plus - this one is movable from side to side. -The freezer door shelves' space between the guard and the bottom of the bin is too wide. Thinner items drop right through. I addressed this quickly and inexpensively by cutting a 20" x 9" piece of heavy duty perforated grippy shelf liner and creating a sling, affixing one end of the edge of the shelf guard and one end to the back of the door with painters' tape. Not the prettiest, but securely works like a dream and does not damage anything (see photo). -Freezer shelf is tempered glass and not wire, and is already bowing with "regular" amount of stored items. -Freezer shelf is lower than in previous model, so fewer items fit underneath and more items must be stored on top. For me, this reduced my overall storage capacity. -The mechanical hum has both an expected low-pitched sound, and an unexpected high-pitched sound. Both are quieter than the previous model, but it is challenging to get used to that high-pitched noise. One sound improvement - the auto defrost cycle no longer sounds like actively-dripping water. The freezer challenges and the high-pitched sound are enough to make me miss the old version. Otherwise, it is decent, fairly basic refrigerator and fits perfectly in my kitchen. Not many choices in this height/width without reducing freezer and overall capacity, and this is my best option to maximize storage space in the same footprint.

                Cool Refrigerators!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Our FCS Program has grown by leaps and bounds and we needed more storage space to work with our two day food labs! These refrigerators are a blessing!

                  So far working as it supposed to.
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A “POOR DESIGN” with the storage on the freezer door. The shelf is not wide enough to keep the items from falling through, and that’s a BIG problem. As a matter of fact, I’ve removed the bottom rail and trying to restructure it so it will be more functional in retaining the foods from falling through.
                    Junk - no reply from Whirlpool after 2 contacts
                    Do not buy this unless you like frost and ice in your freezer. Boxes of frozen items get soggy with moisture & tray inside frosts. Sometimes there is moisture everywhere in the freezer that I wipe up with a towel. Moisture collects inside the refrigerator in bread/roll bags, so the top gets soggy and the bottom is hard. Repair people have been out twice and say there is nothing they can do. “That’s just how it’s made”. Said we are getting frost/ice in there because we are using a swamp cooler.

                      Expected better quality
                      It is noisy, seems to run a lot. The refrigerator gasket does not seal. There is no suction holding this door shut. The gasket has gaps in it. Put a flashlight in it and took a picture.

                          Mixed feelings about refrigerator
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a love/hate relationship with this new refrigerator. I love the wide door and adjustable shelves inside the refrigerator section. I hate the door shelves in the freezer section. These shelves are half shelves (only 2 inches wide with a 2 inch wide gap to the bar across the front). These door shelves do not hold small containers and frozen vegetable bags; they fall through the gap. This is a poor engineering design. Otherwise, the freezer is spacious enough to hold my food.
