Energy Guide

Warranty

Get Adobe Reader

* Documents require Adobe Reader.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Very Frustrated!

dyzee 10/2/2017

This is a replacement for my 3 year old 18 cubit foot fridge that was freezing the food in my fridge due to a problem with the compressor. I am extremely frustrated as this NEW replacement is doing the same thing! I have an appointment scheduled on Oct 9th with the extended warranty company to determine what the problem is. I am very frustrated with Whirpool products!

great space, in consistent temperatures in refrig space

Whirlpool refrig owner 8/14/2017

Glad I got this refrig as it provides much more space both in refrig and freezer cavities. However, find that there are areas in the refrig space which freeze my food when temperature is set to recommended settings. Have found the need to set temperature one warmer than recommended.

Lots of room!

Debbie 7/26/2017

I got this about 3 weeks ago and am very happy. Its very roomy, the freezer is larger than my other unit and has a a wire rack. It's nice and quiet, the deli drawer can be located on either side with a solid half shelf on top rather than the standard wire rack which can be very handy at times. There is also a shelf in the door that can tilt up in order to place tall items in the door, great feature! The only disappointment is the fruit and vegetable drawers on the bottom are very short.

bad apple

Sam 3/5/2017

I bought this refrigerator about a month ago and turned out to be a bad apple. It doesn't cool like it is supposed to. Refrigerator temp was at 65 degrees. It should be at 40. Not good. And it was making a bunch of noise. It kept me up two nights in a row. I would not advised in buying this product.

BKD 2/24/2017

We have been pleased with this fridge. Not overly loud. Icemaker works great. Shelving is sufficient. It is not a high end fridge and does not pretend to be. At this price point, we really think it was a good deal. There are only 2 of us and it works for our needs. Very minor issues are that the butter shelf lets things fall off of it and the vegetable drawers aren't super smooth for pulling out. Not deal breakers by any means. We have it in black and it goes well with the rest of our kitchen.

A pleasant surprisIng improvement from 13 cu. ft to 18.2 cu. ft, lots of room in the freezer and refrigerator. Finally I can purchase my monthly groceries without wondering if it will fit in the freezer/refrigerator. Like the simplicity of controls, don't have to spend hours figuring out how it works.
