DO NOT BUY this fridge...
We purchased this model WRV986FDEM in January 2018. We originally loved the refrigerator and it ran well for 2-3/4 years until we noticed small puddles of water on the floor at the corner of the fridge. Originally we thought it was melted ice from a cube that dropped from the ice dispenser. Then the problem got worse and noticed the floor had larger puddles of water, then we realized the problem was more than dropped ice. January 2021, we contacted whirlpool to schedule a service call and 1-1 1/2 weeks later the technician arrived to diagnose and repair the problem. At first the tech determined the drain line was frozen, not allowing water to drain properly to the collection pans under the fridge. After 30-45 minutes he realized the drains weren’t frozen, but they were collapsed. At a loss, the technician called whirlpool engineers who quickly informed him the fridge could not be repaired and there was no way to clear the drain. The back of the fridge is completely sealed in spray foam and are not accessible. The drain lines were this way from the factory and this fridge should have never been shipped. Now we have a 3 yr old, $3400 fridge that leaks water all over the floor, it can’t be repaired and needs to be replaced. I’ve had less expensive models from kenmore that lasted longer than this model. I am working with Whirlpool Product Replacement Group, but since the fridge is out of warranty, they are telling me I will need to come up with several hundred dollars to replace the fridge with a comparable unit. I’m not certain if quality and customer satisfaction are part of their corporate mission, but it seems they can afford it, Whirlpools annual sales are almost $20 Billion. Looks like LG or Samsung may be in running for the replacement. Totally disappointed, definitely not considering Whirlpool for any other new purchases or when upgrading appliances.

    Love the 2 ice makers
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this refrigerator in 2015 and have really loved it except until about 2 months ago...the lights and ice/water dispenser stopped working. Repair men have had trouble fixing it. After the 4th attempt in fixing it should hopefully be ok!!?? Repair man has tried 2 different new computer panels and it hasn’t done the trick. If the 3rd try doesn’t work, then I think it’s a total lemon of a fridge. Only 4 years old

        Not worth the $$$$
        We bought the WRV986FDEM01 July 2016, 3 years ago. Appoximately 1 year ago, the left hand refrigerated draw stopped lighting up, allowing you to change settings for it. In addition we've been having problems with the top refrigerator. First, it started becoming too cold and our food was freezing, below 32 degrees in the top. (Eggs, sour cream and vegetables were frozen, milk was iced) We followed instructions to make sure air flow wasn't be blocked and increased the temperature to 40 degrees. No change, so we un-plugged the unit for 5 minutes allowing the issue to be fixed for a bit. It happened 2 more times. Now, we have the opposite problem. The upper refrigerator isn't cooling below 54.5 degrees. We have ice forming on and above the coils behind the deli draws. I used a blow drawer to melt it and wipe out all the water, but this AM the ice on the coils reformed and the fridge temperature remains the same. I'm worried my family is getting sick from spoiled food due to this refrigerator. There are way too many similar reviews to mine with this same problem. I've already spent way too much money on this Whirlpool unit. The cost in parts, labor, etc will be more than buying a new unit. I have a 2002 Whirlpool Gold side-by-side sitting in an unconditioned garage running strong without any problems like this 3 year old model. Whirlpool what are you going to do to correct this reoccurring problem with the Whirlpool - 26 cu. ft. Double Drawer Refrigerator with Dual Icemakers WRV986FDEM01?

            What happened to the standards of quality?
            Wow, I'm super shocked yet relieved to know that we are not alone in regards to this refrigerator! Just like many others have stated, My husband and I have owned many whirlpool appliances in the past, always holding Whirlpool in high regards and loving that a majority of their products are Made in the USA However Whirlpool has a 1 year warranty. What happened to that trusted brand? That brand that made us confident to "decline the extended warranty" so naive for us to trust like we do, We are the ones who have purchased product after product, believed in the quality, and trusted it would stand the test of time as it did in the past, actually never worrying about the extended warranty bc "it's a whirlpool". Please, Tell me that those days are not gone, I have been extremely apprehensive to write this review, I've tried to word it all as appropriately as possible because I've always been a loyal consumer to the Whirlpool brand, was raised knowing this brand and eventually learning, observing and knowing for myself, after purchasing my own appliances by other brands, WHY my parents would say- you get what you pay for- they unknowingly educated me about whirlpool appliances so much, my parents still have the best dryer ever! It's so old!! It works beautifully though, no issues, never had 1 it was totally built to last back then I guess. I have that appreciation for built to last but what about today's alliances? Are they built to last? Even older, more affordable(way less expensive/cheaper Whirlpool appliance's like my parents washer/dryer) they were built back then to endure a family's/ person(s) needs without fail for I'd think at least 4 + years even w/the cheapo models, triple that time frame for my parents washer/ dryer lol. Here's My review: It was literally 2 days after the 1yr.warranty was up when we first noticed a sound that was louder than normal, came out nowhere then went away for about 3 weeks Now it comes and goes getting louder at random times and much more frequently, 2 months later we woke up to our daughter asking "Why is our floor flooded?" Just crazy. Thought someone accidentally dropped ice cubes or spilled their water or something bc of the random pooling effect it had. Since then This is our experience with this refrigerator to date. 1) Loud, unusual sounds coming from fridge, the sounds come and go now and fluctuate in volume/pitch/humm 2) Inconsistent/ random water draining?/leaking/pooling/ flooding in front, underneath and behind. 3) The Lower ICE maker(THIS IS THE#1 REASON WE PURCHASED THIS SPECIFIC FRIDGE *we researched the specs compared to other brands due to negativity in regards to dual ice makers in general vs brands and all, We have a large family and entertain on weekends during anything sports related, I needed the convenience of the dual ice production) The lower ice maker started showing very inconsistent production, no cubes, deformed cubes, partial cubes, blocks of cubes etc. then came the issue of the ice getting stuck up in the tray thing while in mid cycle so the ice will not completely drop out of or come out of ice maker tray, leading us to finagle with it just so it stops making the sound like it is trying to empty then it just stopped making sounds, producing the little too no ice like before, it stopped a day ago which is why im writing this and IT DOES NOT work at all as of today, moving forward, 4) The water dispenser malfunctions(sticks) enough to really irritate me. We will get a glass of water then remove the glass but the water continues to flow, although it flows briefly its annoying to re clean the fridge after just doing so, if u know what I mean.5) The left snack/ thawing drawer temperature touch control panel no longer works or illuminates and sounds like a dull beep when trying to see if it'll work, indicating the drawer itself is probably not working as what it's intended to do. 6) The front door touch panel for climate, filter, cooling etc options control panel and the (ice/ water buttons) do not work consistently, we are finding that we need to push harder on the panel to get ice and water and sometimes they do not work at all or we have to continually press and repress the ice/water button to kind of wake it up. It is frustrating to say the least And finally #7) The front right bolt with the rubber foot on it, next to the right front wheel is either warped or the metal bracket/plate it's screwed into was not aligned properly when attached, the top part of bolt is stripped which made it a huge task for me, didn't have a wrench that fit the stripped shape, to unscrew so it will roll, I had to use every tool I (in my husband's tool chest) knew how to use to twist that nonsense up enough to be able to roll/move this refrigerator away from wall to clean old leaking water- so gross. We are just waiting now, thinking it is only a matter of time before the compressor(s)? stops . Thank u for enduring my review of my whirlpool refrigerator, She is a gorgeous looking refrigerator, that was designed with standards in mind, maybe they are "all not made the same" not sure what happened to those standards with ours but they are not present and my fridge should've at the very least lasted for years (I'm talking at least 8-10 years for the $ instead of 1 year & 2 days before sick syndrome developed) I'm feeling slightly duped and apprehensive with the quality of Whirlpool appliances, we just purchased one of their top line, x-lrg top loading washing machines, seems great so far only complaint is I hit/ bruise my elbows a lot getting clothes out of it because it is so deep, I am 5'9 for reference anyways I truly hope it has the standards it was designed to have and that we will not be as disappointed with its quality.

              Who wants paneled doors when this is so stunning?!
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had this for a month, not only beautiful showpiece, but storage with 3 interior drawers, as well as the 2 pull out drawers for easy access. First refrigerator that actually "crushes" the ice cubes, rather than breaking in half as ALL previous models I have purchased. In drawer ice is a wonderful bonus, although the in door ice has kept up beautifully...also love the option of being able to remove the in door ice bin if needed as well. My friends all make statements like, "my dream fridge/jealous"!!!

                  Whirlpool describes their fridge smuge/fingerprint resistant is perfect, this is a lie. My fridge from the day it was installed is a mess and I am returning it. Truly disappointed.

                    Best Refrigerator we ever owned
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My wife and I are thorough shoppers. We shopped for several months until we found the right fridge for our 6 person family. Although hesitant to try a new style, this refrigerator is better that we imagined. After two months of use, I still love it. Easy to set up and get going. Easy to clean fingerprints on surface. Double ice maker fantastic for parties! Love the attention to effective use of all available space! Freezer space with extra drawer is excellent!
