My new refrigerator

By Anne the cook

from Port Charlotte, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I have being using this new refrigerator for 3 months. I find the configuration of the inside very useful and roomy. However, it has some design issues. The cold air vents in the freezer are at the very bottom. Since they should not be blocked and they are at the bottom, it's a difficult to not put frozen food on them. It would be more energy efficient if the long shelf under the crispers had it's own drawer, as opposed to having to open both refrigerator drawers to get to it. A plastic piece of trim broke off from one shelf after one month of using the refrigerator....not the quality I expected, considering the cost of the appliance. It is quite noisy while running.

Never again, dead less than 3 years

By Georgia Consumer

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I've owned this appliance since April 2013, it was a lemon from the start. It was always noisy, had the main board replaced in the first year. Crisper temperature readout never worked after the first 3 months. Recently the freezer fan motor got too loud and broke, had that replaced, but ice had been forming/leaking in the back of the refrigerator/ice maker and the freezer compartment. After a month, the new fan motor is loud again, and now the unit does not cool properly. I put frozen food in the freezer to thaw it out. Food in the refrigerator spoils quickly now, got sick from fresh spinach that went bad faster than I had expected, but because the temperature is too high in the unit. Repair man now says about $1K to repair and mentioned special project #s71233. I called whirlpool multiple times who deny any problems, and all they want is to sell me a new one at a "discount" through their Loyalty Retention Program. What a joke! I bought direct from Whirlpool VIP, and it's criminal that this appliance lasted less than 3 years and they refuse to stand by it and make it right. All my appliances in my house are whirlpool gold, but after this I will NEVER buy another Whirlpool product. I'm going to go buy an LG refrigerator now. It was either LG or Samsung. Not going to throw my money way with Whirlpool ever again.

Dead after 15 months

By busy mom

from Lethbridge, Alberta

Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

We bought this fridge 15 months ago and it is now no longer working. Under warranty the compressor, inverter and evaporators were replaced and the fridge still does not work. A complete waste of our money we invested and now we have a fridge that doesn't work with no replacement.

Problems with my refrigerator

By Kate

from Castle Rock, Co

Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I bot this refrigerator 2 1/2 years ago. It has been the worst refrigerator I have ever owned. In the beginning I had many problems with the ice maker. Finally got that fixed. Now 2 years later the MAIN circuit breaker is out and the switch is out. My refrigerator will no longer work. I have been without a refrigerator for 3 weeks now trying to get some one to fix it or replace it.

Piece of JUNK

By EazyB

from Miami, FL

Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I bought this 4 month ago and the first unit didn't work the ice maker. Brandsmart sent another one and the second unit after 4 month failed completely.Stop cooling/freezing.Customer support sent a technician who said that the valve who handles the cooling/freezing Freon (something like that) was bad from factory and needed to replace it but they didn't have the part.Since I have 2 kids, I had to buy a small fridge to go trough the days until I get this piece of junk repaired and not to mention the amount of bad food I had to disposed. Adding the cost of the fridge plus the trouble, next time I will look into a better brand and more reliable products with better customer service (FRIGIDAIRE never gave me any troubles)
Now and After 10 days I'm supposed to have the technician coming to my home on Wednesday to repair it. I think this model was bad and whirlpool knows the many failures this model carries. I contacted whirlpool several times to get it exchange but It seems that they don't care about their customers.

Inverter board went bad after 13 months

By Kim

from Atlanta

Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I bought this refrigerator, plus a Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer in November 2014. Last week, one month after the warranty expired, the inverter board on the refrigerator went bad. Obviously, I'd expect major components to last more than 13 months. Additionally, I am now having issues with the washer as well - not filling with enough water, not getting clothes clean. Whirlpool was the only brand I looked at when purchasing these appliances, due to strong reviews and the Whirlpool reputation for quality. Suffice it to say I'll be looking for other options in the future.

Great Reliable Product

By Jr.

from Denham Springs, LA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 28.6 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

Have had this product for 9 months now and couldn't be happier. The fridge is very consistent and easy to use. Had to replace the filter and that only took a minute or two - don't be worried when black particles or bubbles show up after changing, they go away in a day or two.
