Stopped working after one week

By Rob

from Dallas TX

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

Made ice for one week than by week two stopped making ice by the third week realized the freezer wasn't working either. Had to throw out hundreds of dollars worth of food. Happy the store took it back. Won't buy a whirlpool again.

Need to get some issues worked out

By Bumblebee

from WI

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

Have had this refrigerator for almost a month, so far not very pleased with it's performance. Can not get the temperature below 42 degrees in the fridge. Did exactly as install directions had said and left it plugged in running empty for the first 24 hours. Put a thermometer inside to watch the temp and it was at 42 even though I had turned the temp down to 33 degrees, but I figured maybe keeping it full of cold food would help. Thought maybe the thermometer was off so I placed a glass of water in the fridge for 24 hours and checked temp, was still 42. The seal on the freezer door is leaking on the left side, every 3 days or so we have to chip out ice that accumulates near the door track. The doors on the upper part seem to very loosely seal, but no idea why it feels that way. Luckily purchased an extended warranty because so far it looks like this appliance might have a future of many repair visits. Waiting to get some time off work to schedule a repair visit!

good but not the exceptional that I expected

By Featherpillow

from Houston, Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I bought this a month ago and was VERY excited and also splurged because I really wanted this fridge. It's attractive and functional. I was excited about the three segment design. I like the produce drawer though it's hard to get used to in the middle, it is nice to see everything! Also love the three sliding sections in the freezer compartment - no digging! I have added a lazy susan to offset some of the door shortage space, which is working well. I also really LOVE that tiny sliding door in the front - I keep cheese, water flavoring and other little/frequent use items.

But here are some things I've discovered:
1. It doesn't make enough ice for a 2 person household
2. It's much louder than others who reviewed it seemed to find it, I am often aware of it because of its noise level
3. You can't use the ice or water functions if either of the doors are open - this seems weird but it is oddly inconvenient
4. There is no where near enough door storage and the storage on the left drawer is way too shallow
5.
6. Fingerprints show a lot on its outer surfaces

Overall, it's a functional unit and attractive but there are some things I would change on its next version!

Great fridge

By AJ

from Wilmington, DE

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

Great fridge, 3 issues. It was advertised as being finger print resistant. It is not. Ice cubes clump together. Does get ice forming in freezer. Other than that it's really spacious and bright. You can see everything.

Nice Refrigerator...but

By Mark C

from Chico, CA

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I've had this refrigerator for about 2 years and the circuit for the compressor has been replaced twice. It is a good refrigerator and has excellent capacity. Hopefully, I am in the minority with this issue.

Love the space

By Mom

from Windermere, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

I bought this fridge two month ago and I am so happy we chose this one. We hesitated between several different brand and models, but in the end chose this one.Love the amount of space and the collapsible shelf.
Only thing we don't use much is that little drawer in the front bottom, but my daughter likes to hide little Joghurts in there.So i guess even that found some use :)

I love this refrigerator! Roomy, bright and pretty. What more can anyone ask for! I love all the lights and room. The freezer is so big with 2 extra drawers. The middle drawer is wonderful. Sometimes that's all I open for days. It's just wonderful!!!

So far so good

By Turkmanna

from Navarre, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

Little over 2 months of ownership. Freezer is great with solid plastic drawers that tuck away easily and middle drawer with electable temperature are perfect among all the other fridges we looked at. The main fridge has a few shortcomings: The door shelf are pretty limited for adjustment, and tall bottles are hard to fit (Although they are very generous dept wise). The vegetable drawers are very small. having just 2 drawers rather then the 3 might have been better. Slide away shelf that tucks away to allow tall items to be put in is a great idea. If you will have a party, either buy ice or start taking it out and putting into a separate container, as the ice maker available storage for ice is very limited.

So much room!!!!!

By Mother of 2 growing boys

from Boiling Springs, SC

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

We've had this refrigerator for about a week now and I'm in love. I bought this one to replace an older, smaller refrigerator. This one has more than enough space to hold enough food to feed an army. The freezer is phenomenal and the extra shelves make organization a breeze. My favorite part of this Whirlpool is the pantry drawer. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Happy

By Mayo

from Ky

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 26.2 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:

Very are happy that we selected this Refridgerator. We use a lot of fresh fruits and veggies daily for green drinks and snacking. The middle drawer is awesome. Keeps you from having to open both French doors in order to pull out the crisper drawer. Love the French door design and lots of flexibility with shelves. Bottom freezer are full drawers not just baskets, nice that it offers three separate drawers with various depths helps keep everything organized.
Ice maker and water features are really nice.
We researched and looked at a bazillion reviews for more than a year before we made this purchase. Whirlpool has been a very reliable company and that is why we replaced our old whirlpool of 28yrs with New whirlpool products. Time will tell if the quality lives up to what we expect.
At this point we are very pleased.
