The Special Features of Whirlpool Gold

The Whirlpool Gold Refrigerators offer a number of great features in its line of top freezer refrigerator, french door and side by side refrigerators such as:

  1. Expanded Capacity: The average capacity of the Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator line a bit larger than many of the standard Whirlpool refrigerator models. Remember, to consider approximately 10 cubic feet of food storage space per two people in the house.

  2. Reversible Door Swing: The unfortunate truth is that many kitchens aren't compatible with all refrigerators. But with a reversible door swing, you can reverse the direction of the door. Got a counter or cabinet in the way? No problem, switch sides!

  3. SpillGuard Glass Shelves: There's nothing more annoying than spilling a liquid and having it fall through the wire shelves of a typical fridge. With the SpillGuard Glass Shelves that's a problem of the past. The spill is contained on one easy to clean, removable shelf.

  4. Energy Star Certification: Whirlpool currently has FORTY (40) refrigerators with the Energy Star label. An unprecedented percentage compared to many of the other brands out there. Just check to make sure that the one you are getting is Energy Star rated because most but not all of them are Energy Star certified.

    Not only do they save you money on your electric bill, buying any Energy Star rated also entitles you to an Energy Star Rebate from the US Government.

Top Rated Whirlpool Gold Refrigerators

We have reviewed and “road tested” many of the Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator models and here are the FOUR models that rose to the top:

Best Whirlpool Gold Top Freezer Refrigerator

Whirlpool Gold GR2SHWXP Top Freezer

The GR2SHWXP is one of the more affordable Whirlpool Top Freezer Refrigerator models in the Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator line.


  • We loved the 21.7 cu. ft. of space in this well designed machine.

  • The temperature controls are easy to use and accurately adjust the interior temperature.

  • The Gallon sized door bins were extremely convenient.

  • It runs quiet and the factory installed ice maker produced great tasting ice at a pretty impressive clip.

  • It's also Energy Star qualified which will save you money on your electric bill and possibly put some back into your pocket through an Energy Star Rebate.

  • Our only complaint was the ice had a bit of a funny taste initially. But after a few runs, it went back to normal.

MSRP: $1209.99 for the stainless model, but under $1,000.00 for white, bisque and black.

Best Whirlpool Gold Bottom Freezer

Whirlpool Gold GB2SHDXT Bottom Freezer

The Whirlpool GB2SHDXT performed quite well in our testing. This particular model is extremely popular with consumers considering its extremely affordable price tag.

The stainless steel exterior adds a bit of flair to this fridge that already makes waves. A sister model (model number Whirlpool Gold GB9SHKXM) is one of the highest rated Whirlpool bottom freezer refrigerators with Consumer Reports.


  • From the Easy Tote adjustable door bins, to the easy to read electronic controls and Dual Up-Front Temperature Control Knobs, there's a lot to love with this refrigerator.

  • The Accu-Chill™ System with Foam-In-Place Doors provides accurate temperature control and the Slide-out SpillGuard™ Glass Shelves provides ample and accessable storage space.


  • The factory installed icemaker worked a bit slower than we would have liked.

MSRP: $1509.99 for the stainless model.

Best Whirlpool Gold Side by Side Refrigerator

Whirlpool Gold GD5NHAXS[Q]Side by Side Refrigerator Freezer

The Whirlpool GD5NHAXS surprised us by how quiet it was as well as how well it maintained a constant temperature. The usual complaint with most Whirlpool refrigerators is the noise, but this model proved Whirlpool can in fact keep the noise level at a minimum.


  • This side by side refrigerator has plenty of great styling and capacity. (It's available in stainless steel as well).

  • The pullout freezer storage shelving and gallon door storage come in very handy. The front face is easy to keep clean.


  • The ice maker could work a bit faster and it would be beneficial to have split shelving in the refrigerator, but overall this fridge performed well.

MSRP: $1699.00
