Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Good features, bad problems

DB 7/30/2017

For the first 3 years I owned this refrigerator, it was great. Now, within the last year, I've had the icemaker quit working two times, and now I seem to have an issue under the Technical Service Pointer #W10666205A which my model and s/n are included in, that my freezer does not freeze and the icemaker will not produce ice. The only 'good' thing about this refrigerator now..I can still have filtered water.

Very Loud stay away

Dissatisfied with Whilpools response 10/16/2015

After the warranty of 12 months the frig failed completely. Had to replace the entire inner workings. Still very loud and can hear the buzzing at 60 feet away. I've spent almost $3K on this frig, it's functions well but is the absolute worst frig I've ever owned.

So far so good

pawz1200 10/9/2015

We have had this fridge for about 4-5 moths now. Works as it should and the French doors are awesome. The plastic drawer in the freezer section concerns me for longevity but we owned a Whirpool before for 10+ years w/ no issues so that is why we stayed with this brand when it finally conked out. Great space and water, ice function works well. Seems a bit noisier than our last version but it is fine. Interior LED lighting is awesome and changing the filter up top is a nice feature.

WORST refrigerator EVER!

Kconner 6/25/2015

Not even 2 years old and it has been serviced 7-9 times due to major issues! Had to buy extra warranty plans, and it just broke again! Water leaking from the ceiling getting everything wet in frig, ice maker has half melted ice, and the compressor in the freezer has gone out twice...on a frig that is only a year and a half old! We had to buy a back up frig/freezer for the garage due to the frig not working randomly! Worst frig ever!

Best frig ever

Mynewfrig 6/23/2015

I stsarted out with a 22cf I was looking for a great buy and I saw this for the size was awesome and the features are easy and fast to learn. My only complant is the ice maker is small even with fast ice settig it produces slow ice. I have so much space in my new frig it looks empty. Freezer space is a little small but everything fits. the lighting on this frig is awesome.......

More than ample storage space.

Joan 6/7/2015

I like the bottom freezer, the ice and water in the door (no lost freezer space) and lots of shelf space to use as needed. Also like the separate drawer space for produce--vegetables, fruits, and meats, cheese, and soda cans.

Perfect fridge for our crew!

OCDdadof3 4/18/2015

We bought this fridge about a month ago and absolutely love it! We opted for the black/ ice color combo which looks trendy and is easy to clean. The setup of the French door fridge makes food easier to see and reach than our old side by side. The water and ice taste clean and fresh from day one due to the built in water filter. My favorite feature is that if a door is left open too long, it will start beeping (I have a 3 year old and never realized how much he does this until now) but am very happy to get the alert!

great refrigerator

lbl812 2/20/2015

This is a great refrigerator... It has plenty of shelf space and when I need to adjust the shelves moves easily. The freezer is sectioned and helps with organization. I love the crushed ice on the door.

We could not be happier with this product. The purchase experience was great. The installation team was phenomenal. This refrigerator is much nicer than our previous unit. It has thus far exceeded our expectations.

monk4141 1/10/2015

plenty of storage, love the bottom freezer, awesome exterior looks, somewhat noisy ice maker, but not unbearable. The single water/ice despencer takes more pressue to hold glass against than I anticipated.
