Summary: Was delivered today and we just returned this one to the store. Buyers beware that this item is flat, gunmetal grey. The color and shade depicted on the website led us to believe otherwise as it is called "stainless look". The name itself is pretty misleading because it doesn't even look stainless. For those needing your appliances to "match" other stainless appliances, get the real stainless version of this Whirlpool.
Summary: I purchased this refrigerator last october, so it's been almost a year. Mainly bought it for the ice maker, we still had to make and dump our ice trays and had a very limited space to fit a refrigerator in and this one was pretty much the only one that we could find to fit. I found it online and then went to the lowes store to check it out. Priced at $899.99 but we got it for $799.99. I also purchased the extra 2 yr warrenty on it.
Summary: Just past l yr warranty - my fridge has developed cracks in the liner. Would not have bought had I known. Whirlpool customer service says sorry too bad! cosmetic only and I can purchase epoxy kit to try and cover up. Not what I would have expected from what I had previously considered a top brand. NO more- will never buy Whirlpool again!
Summary: The ice dispenser never worked right.The water dosnt run smoothly . The water filter needs to be replaced every month . The cost:$40.00. the ice maker dosnt work at all after 6 months. Item not recomendable.
Summary: We had this refridgerator for a year and 2 weeks to be exact. The manufacturers warranty is 1 year. We had gotten this refrigerator when we purchased the house brand new so had no oppurtunity to do an extended warranty. At a year and 2 weeks our compressor went out and when I called Whirlpool they told me, “There is NOTHING we can do for you.” I was stuck with paying the 850ish to fix this 1000 refridgerator.
Summary: I had purchased black, awaiting my order, changed to stainless over phone, expected stainless steel, rather than stainless look, but have been more pleased because of price and easier to keep clean than stainless. Does not smear like stainless steel. Only con is doors appear uneven to me, but no one else notices, and they seem like they are properly sealed. Had almost two years, no problems.
