Best Fridge Ever!

By Money Hill Girl

from Abita Springs, LA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

This refrigerator is the best one I have ever owned. I did LOTS of research before buying it. Even though it is slightly smaller than my side-by-side cubic feet-wise, it holds way more. Everything is so easy to find now; and there is room to spare. The only drawback is the handle on the freezer door. We cannot get it to screw on firmly, so it wiggles whenever you use it. Still, we absolutely love this product.

Mostly great so far

By HJ

from Algonquin, IL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

We've had our new refrigerator for a month and so far we like it a lot. The space in the main refrigerator compartment is great. Seems much emptier than our old side by side with the same basic items. The roll out drawers are smooth to operate. Not many shelves on the door but they hold more than I thought. Only minor complaint is there is not much space for tall bottles (like a 2 liter of pop or gallon of milk). There is a shelf that slides back to make more vertical space but we fill that area up quickly.

The fourth drawer is nice. We keeps drinks, kids snacks and deli items there. Easier to find and access.

The freezer drawer has also worked well. We like the pizza storage against the drawer.

Our only complaint so far is the ice/water system. Two separate paddles or switches for ice/water is much nicer than cycling the touch button over and over. Also the paddle provided hinges at the bottom and you push at the top. Takes a bit to get used to. Furthermore the water dispense is in front of the ice outlet. If you press a glass in there that is not wide enough it sprays in front over your hand. You often need to hold the glass with one hand and push the button with the other. Last issue is the door mount ice system has small capacity. We drink a lot of water and have two kids filling up for sports. We push the capacity to keep up.

I wish Whirlpool put the dual paddle option on this Gold Series. It is on the level down, maybe because it takes up more space and that model has the ice maker up in the main compartment. Other manufacturers have stacked dual switches and better nozzle position. That would address this shortcoming also.

You guys suck !

By Dennis your unhappy customer

from Sammamish, WA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I had to buy a new refrigerator because the other whirl pool refrigerator which was only 2 years old had so many problems. Whirl Pool came out twice and fixed the same problem on warranty. One month after the warranty expired the part broke again. Whirl Pool would not honor their service. Stay away from Whirl Pool.

Terrible design

By Chris

from Bucks county PA

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

They have managed to make a big refrigerator massive and not hold much. The I middle drawer seems like a Google idea but the process of doing that made the vegetable drawers too small and the main body too small. The intrusive iwarter dispenser makes the left door useless and the shelves are so small on the other door it can't hold much. The multi drawer freezer is its only redeeming quality.

Really Like my Refrigerator!

By Pleased!

from Jamesport, MO

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

We bought this refrigerator 6+ months ago and have been very happy with it! It is a little noisy, but we often don't even think of it anymore. Have been very happy we purchased one with the extra deli drawer with access without opening the refrigerator. My last French door refrigerator had the deli drawer inside the double doors and it always seemed so flimsy. This one is solid and is larger than my previous one was. I keep those items in it that I often go for, cheese, butter, sour cream etc. and it feels like I am conserving energy by not opening up the whole refrigerator!

Freezer does not work properly, too much frost on food

By JL

from New Braunfels, Texas

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

Purchased this frig in June 2015. The freezer has never worked properly. All of the food items get freezer burn right away, even the items that are in the original packaging. Ice bream has to be tossed after a week. There is always condensation on the gaskets around the doors. Purchased Whirlpool because it was "Made In America"

Poor refrigerator but worse horrible customer service.

By John

from Birmingham

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I bought this 6 months ago. I wanted all of my appliances to match in my kitchen after the remodel. I bought the stove, fridge, microwave, and dishwasher. I love every appliance but the fridge. I have had to call to get it fixed three times before my last call. Every time they were able to get it working for about a month and a half or so. The last time the tech said that he would get it covered under warranty and have a new one delivered. Whirlpool finally contacts me and tells me that they will order a new one but it will take several weeks to get it to me. I think their customer service is horrible and would not ever recommend that anyone purchase anything from whirlpool. In our rather large city there is not another whirlpool fridge for sale I guess because whirlpool expects us to go several weeks without a fridge. I am not certain about everyone else but with my family of 5 I NEED a fridge. I think there customer service (or lack there of) is a joke. I am not certain that I should expect much else from them though. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON ANY WHIRLPOOL PRODUCTS. Save a little money and buy a Samsung or LG.

I would recommend this refrigerator to others

By Joe

from Boswell, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I read other reviews on this refrigerator and the noise was mentioned as being annoying. It does make a little noise when it is making ice but it wasn't enough to bother me or my family. The other reviewers had also listed that the ice/water dispenser had issues but as long as you hold your glass up to it and not sit it on the ledge to fill, there doesn't seem to be a problem of the water or ice going in the glass.
