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.

Lots Of Space

By Shphrd

from Ontario, Canada

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

We have had this Fridge for 3 weeks and it is great. The only issue i have with it is that the dairy/cheese drawer has to have both doors open to be able to pull out the drawer. It should have been made into 2 or 3 drawers so you only have to open one door.

DO NOT BUY THIS

By IJ

from IL

Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I bought this refrigerator 4 yrs ago. It failed in the first 6 months. We had a service engineer come out and he told us that this was first generation dual evaporator design and that whirlpool knew there were design flaws and went and marketed anyway. Whirlpool ordered a spare evaporator and they fixed it at their expense. Then the electronic panel on the bottom drawer failed. We did not report it.
Then the freezer failed. Whirlpool came in and fixed it. Last week The fridge failed. It is not cooling to 34F that I have set it at. This time I will probably have to pay. I am thinking of putting it in the trash and calling it a day. My older refrigerator ..a GE model is still running after 16+ yrs

Failing in three years

By Bbe

from pA

Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

Poor product. Three times in 9 months I have had so much frost build up behind freezer that drawers will not shut. Doors tightened first time, new control plan next time. That failed in less than one month. Bought extended warranty through hhgregg. "Fast reliable service" means takes 8 days from first call to come, and another 8 days to get replacement part. Won't deal with either Whorlpool or hhgregg again. Lemon obviously. From other reviews, looks like it is my total loss.

Too Loud !

By Lean

from Miami

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.8 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

The refrigerator is ok.... but it makes to much noise when the compressor stars operating.
At night or in quiet moments I can hear the noise in all the rooms of my home.
Very annoying.
