Don't purchase products made by Whirlpool
BENTON HARBOR, MICHIGAN -- I purchased a Kitchenaid (made by Whirlpool), French Door, bottom freezer, stainless steel refrigerator in June, 2012. Seven months after purchase, the freezer stopped working. I am now without a freezer, waiting for a part that is on "back order" until Mar. 5. Whirlpool's compensation was to extend my warranty by 4 months. Meanwhile, the unit runs continuously trying to cool a freezer that will not freeze. I dread seeing my next electric bill. Of course, all of the food in the freezer had to be thrown out. What I wouldn't give for an ice cube...or two. I wish I had read the reviews prior to purchasing. Afraid I am now "stuck" with this defective $2000 refrigerator. I have purchased Whirlpool products in the past (washers and dryers) and have always been happy. Obviously the quality of the products, along with the quality of the company have deteriorated since the "early days". I would never purchase another Whirlpool product.
I guess I should be grateful that in updating my kitchen, only the refrigerator was a Whirlpool product. The rest of the appliances are GE. Should have stuck with GE for the frig, but wanted an inside water dispenser. I am paying the price....
