Summary: Exactly the same issues as everybody else. This is a DEFECTIVE product that Whirlpool knowingly continues to sell to customers. We had multiple service calls within the first year of service, and 15 months after purchasing this piece of junk we are still having the same issues. Here is a list of issues we have with this refrigerator. Some of them are related. - Extremely noisy. We can hear the fridge working from every room in our 3,200 sq. ft. house.
Summary: I really enjoy Whirlpool washers, but when I bought this piece of garbage, I had to change my whole attitude towards Whirlpool. It is a beautiful frig, but every time I change the filter I am in for another service call due to leakage inside the frig. This the third time going through this. Setting up an appointment with Whirlpool customer service is an experience that makes a root canal procedure preferable.
Summary: I purchases a Whirlpool refrigerator model WRF989SDAH serial # K22103573 on 11/03/2012 for $2,457.22. Two year later it was not cooling, an appliance repairman came out on 11/12/2014 and said I had no refrigerant in the cooling system. They said a lot of the new high-pressure refrigerators have leaks around a coupler in the evaporator unit. They did not do a dye test for leaks. He recharged the refrigerator, and it cooled for a while.
Excerpt: Have had our fridge for 4 months. We love the space in the fridge, the freezer is nice a little small for a family of six. We will be purchasing deep freezer soon. My only complaint is that it's a little noisey. Makes a humming sound often!

Summary: Don't buy a Whirlpool. My refrigerator is about 18mos old and I had to replace the compressor 3 months ago. Now the ice maker doesn't work. Whirlpool will not stand behind their product. They make junk and do not care.
Summary: If you buy this refrigerator make sure you get an extended warranty because you will surely need it. I have been a Whirlpool fan for many years until I purchased this refrigerator. This thing is VERY noisy and almost never shuts off. The ice maker is problem prone. I have had it for a little over a year and really wish I had not purchased it. They say it is more energy efficient but I have not seen it in my electric bills.
Summary: I bought one of these about a year ago. The model number on mine is a little different, but it is exactly the same refrigerator. Within 2 months of buying it, the compressor failed and had to be replaced. The repair guy said it is a common problem with this model. Guess what? Here it is about a year after the repair and it has stopped cooling again! Do not buy this frige! In fact, if I had the chance to do it all over again, I wouldn't buy ANY product made by Whirlpool!
Summary: Love the size and look, but I'v had to have techs come out four times in two years. Ice maker has been removed and replaced twice now. Constant water dripping out of fridge door and all over the floors. So happy that I do not have wood floors! Puddles form in door compartment beneath the ice maker, so that every time you pull a bottle or jar from that area, they also drip all over the floor.
WARNING:Whirlpool does not stand behind their products!!!

Summary: I purchesed this in December 2012 and here we are two years later and the freezer has stopped working! The condensor and evaporator are broken and leaking freon, a $1500 repair. Called Whirlpool and Kristin at the Benton Harbor location would not do anything to resolve this situation. So not only is this a horrible product, but the company itself will not stand behind the junk they put out. NEVER AGAIN WHIRLPOOL!
