Roomy but have recommendations

By Baby Boomer Barb

from Dothan, AL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I bought the 36 inch French Door Refrigerator about a month ago. It has a lot more space than my older refrigerator which was a side by side refrigerator-freezer. I was concerned at first with the loudness of the motor which I guess is due to the size and larger area to be cooled. Being a tall person, I was not thrilled about having to bend down to reach items in the freezer but it is okay. I especially like the section for whole pizzas. One recommendation for future models and they may already have noticed this. The drawer for cheese and other items - you have to open both doors to open this drawer. Two separate drawers may be better alternative.

MONEY PIT - STAY AWAY

By Mandy the Mom

from NYM, MN

Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I bought this fridge 3 years ago and has been nothing but a headache for me. I've had so many service calls on this thing.... the last was a complete overhaul and I am right back to the same problems. Currently sitting with a warm freezer/no ice and a fridge at 46 degrees. I have 4 kids under 5 years old... this is a huge problem and since the fridge is no longer under warranty I have to have all the repairs to deem "unrepairable" (for replacement) out of my own pocket. I basically have to buy another fridge that I can't afford, and shouldn't be in this position with a reputable company in the first place. This thing has leaked so much on my floors that is is ruining my hardwood, maybe Whirlpool wants to pay for that?! Stand by your lemons and replace these things. They should be recalled! My neighbor has the same model and has lots of repairs on his too!!

Nothing but problems..

By Stressed Out

from Macomb, MI

Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

We bought this fridge for the size and the looks but have had numerous problems. Got original in 2012. In less than a year had problems with the freezer not staying cold enough. They replaced a part. It got better for a while then same thing happened. They ended up replacing the fridge at one year old. New fridge was ok from 2013-July 2016. Now same thing is happening with this one. Repairman came out and replaced condenser and evaporator per repair bulletin. It started to get colder but freezer never got below 15 degrees. Now they have to come out again. I've had it! This is the third time in 4 years I've had to live out of coolers for 1-2 weeks or more. I've had to spend lots of money on ice and replacing some food. I will never buy Whirlpool again!

Worthless

By Barbara

from Downingtown, PA

Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

Three year old unit has been repaired three times in 9 months. 2nd and 3rd repairs lasted less than 3 weeks before unit failed to cool, make ice, or keep things frozen. Warranty tech wants to damage out and warranty company keeps ordering installing new parts. At this point I have thrown out the contents of this unit 4 times. Total lemon and I a, caught in the middle!

Total disappointment

By nonsense question

from Chicago Illinois

Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I've had this refrigerator for 2 years, just as the warranty expired it started leaking water under the freezer door. None of the documents available tell me how the water line is runs so I can determine the source of the water. In addition to the water problem, this fridge is noisy and the water filters are ridiculously expensive $49.99 each and need to replace them 3 times a year!

Worst one

By Nick

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

This refrigerator has been the worst and most expensive refrigerator I have owned, I had better luck with a Kenmore.
I have had so many problems with this box, to list a few...
The seals in the freezer leaking and needed replaced.
The coolant leaking (which according to the repair man is prone to happening with this model), a 700.00 dollar repair.
It barely keeps ice for our household of 3 on its "high" setting.
The motor occasionally chatters like the exhaust on a car, by occasionally I mean several time for 6 months and than nothing for a while.
Ice building up on the back top left corner (had this looked at a couple times)
Now I am getting warm pockets in the refrigerator, which has me baffled. I dot. Understand how I have ice cold waters but warm milk...?
I had a repair man tell me these refrigerators were, in his eyes, lemons and should all be replaced. They are all very problematic.
I have a warranty, thank God, and have had all these fixed but once the warranty is up I will not throw anymore money at this!

how hard should it be to replace the filter

By Kat

from Saskatoon, sk

Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

Every now and then we try to replace the filter. We follow the directions... Super easy just shut off the water and turn the filter counterclockwise and it basically falls out in your hands. ??? Sure looks easy in the video. Maybe she can come get ours out as we sure get it to come out. I guess should have tried to get the original out before opening the package of the new filter so we could just return it. Our newer replacement fridge is now showing some frosting under the icemaker just like the last.That one cost us as we had to pay to send it to the shop and the movers wrecked our wall and door frame and told me where I could go. Oh, the only reason we have the same problem fridge....we had to use our "discounted ?" return amount towards another more expensive or same fridge... wanted money back and would just go elsewhere. Does whirlpool follow up at all on all these bad reviews? we are sure sorry we did not check this model out before purchasing.
