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.

Loud

Meeeg 9/8/2018

I like a lot about the fridge, but it is so loud. I would trade other features for it to be quieter. I didn't know that the level of noise was something that I had to shop for. The produce drawer is great and holds a lot. I love having the freezer on the bottom. The ice maker is nice and we like the measured fill option. The left fridge door sometimes has to be pushed closed. A red light comes on that the door was left open, but no alarm.

Love this refrigerator

SzQu 8/28/2018

Have been using this refrigerator for about four months and love it. So nice to finally have a freezer on the bottom. A lot of thought went into the design of this refrigerator. The compartments come apart easily for cleaning. The ice maker and water dispenser are great. My only wish is that the upper refrigerator section was about an inch taller so we could adjust the shelves a little better for tall milk and juice containers. It was a trade-off and we would never give up that middle counter height drawer for extra space in the upper compartment.

Trucker lady 1/2/2017

I like the center drawer that you can open without opening the who refrigerator. Great for snacking things. The freezer is set up so it's easy to find things without pulling half the contents out. Top is nice and wide, easy to put leftover pizza box in and the folding shelf for taller items is super.

Like the way it's confiqured.

12/26/2016

I really like the way the interior is set up. Looked at a lot of different styles and brands and finally settled on this. I like the separate door that I can access without opening the whole refrigerator. I have luncheon meats and eggs in there. The 3 drawer freezer works well, I currently have a 13 lb turkey in the bottom, and various boxes and bags of things throughout. I do need to get the middle drawer front fixed as the front is not on right. I don't seem to be able to take it off to get the front realigned with the drawer itself. That is why I gave it only 4 stars. (I had originally purchased a different model of Whirlpool that was cheaper, but after returning one for poor workmanship, then a second for same reason, went back and got this one which I had liked better anyway. Seems like Whirlpool has some quality control issues) Other than the drawer, this one seems fine, Had it about 2 weeks now. Made in USA is a plus.

After struggling with another brand and the service person suggested that it looked good but was a bad brand, he said whirlpool was the one to go with. We looked into it, read reviews, and bought it. Love this fridge!

TX foodie 12/5/2016

We like the overall appearance of the 5 drawer unit and the extra drawer for common items is handy (don't have to let all the cold air our just for a quick item. I am very impressed with the bright lighting inside the unit. The ice maker is noisy but performs well.

So much room in this fridge and you can see everything you need thanks to the LED lighting. The middle drawer of the fridge is a bonus. I don't find much use for the pizza storage in the freezer but my visiting daughter thought it was a significant addition for a busy family.

Looks nice, but I prefer my side by side

9/15/2016

I wish I had stuck with the side by side. We get a lot of compliments on the looks but it fits a lot less food. This is my first whirlpool appliance. Just after the warranty was up (1 year) the water dispenser quit working and was over $200 to fix.

Like fridge, ice tub capacity too small

Lsrs 8/17/2016

Like this fridge. Improvement over our previous fridge. French door with ice/water are convenient. Bottom freezer with pull-out drawers are handy & provide user friendly storage. Only drawback at this time is small size of ice cube storage capacity. Fine for two people ... but not enough capacity for family events.

Large Size Frig!

8/2/2016

This Whirlpool 4-door refrigerator has a lot of flexible space in the refrigerator.The freezer also has two drawers, two dividers and a place for pizza.The only problem area is the water in the door. The dispenser is too far forward so spills happen if you are not careful.

Flexible Storage

3/18/2016

We bought this refrigerator several months ago for more storage.The refrigerator definitely delivered. If you have a large family this refrigerator will serve your family well.I do have trouble finding things in the freezer because I was use to all the shelves in a side-by-side freezer.The water dispenser also is placed out too far for narrow glasses. I also had to remove a shelf to find a place tall enough to stand up a bottle of wine.However, the refrigerator does have lots of space!

Convenient layout but noisy.

8/20/2015

We've had this unit for about two months and at this point we are not happy with it. This model has a variety of noises, but one in particular has a high-pitch whine & is very loud and last a long time. The in-door ice maker has two issues: The first is when you have a full ice basket, the cubes form a solid mass so that when you choose the cube function all you get is shaved or crushed ice - you need to remove the ice bin & break apart the ice mass so you can dispense cubes. To minimize this happening, we make no more than one-half bin of ice by shutting off the ice maker. Shutting off the ice maker is very inconvenient as the on-off switch is small & not easily accessable.There is always water on the freezer drawer gasket. If I could return it I would.

I wouldn't buy this again. When I bought this I was never told about the compressor being variable speed and 240V , which makes this very NOISY! I had a repairman here to fix what I thought was something wrong and he told me its just the way this model is.
