Office fridge

10/13/2015

Purchased for office break room. No bells or whistles. Just for lunch and ice. Bottom drawers do not pull out all they way unless the door can swing open past 180 Dg. If against the wall, the door will limit the drawers removing the drawers. Nice, and clean. Sufficient for the purpose.

I've had this refrigerator for three months. Runs quietly. Keeps things cold. I did take out the sliding meat drawer to give more visible storage.

Simple but roomy

1/7/2015

I bought this refrigerator approx. 2 months ago. Wish I could have gotten one with icemaker & more room, but this is a very good refrigerator. the doors open wide enough to open inside drawers. Freezer does very good, and ref. keeps foods cold. Glad I chose this one.

Secondary Refrigerator

GatorJohn 11/11/2014

We like the Whirlpool line for it's simplicity and makes a good product for a back up unit for overflow storage. This is our second Whirlpool unit used for this purpose.

We needed an extra refrigerator for the basement. This basic one fit our needs perfectly. We wanted a no-frills appliance.

Very satisfied with this product. One exception, it would be great if there was a light that came on in the top freezer.

Always a Whirlpool

CKJ1084 3/12/2013

I have bought all Whirlpool/Kenmore appliances since I first set up housekeeping many years ago. It was not a choice to buy Whirlpool, it was a must. My new refrigerator is the size and quality I needed at this time in my life.
