Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerator

Here's Our Favorite Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerator Reviews

We took a look at the Whirlpool line and found that the Whirlpool side by side refrigerator was a key component to this brand. We then reviewed these refrigerators based on a number of different criteria. When looking at the Whirlpool Side by Side refrigerator, we wanted to take into account two very basic principles of refrigerator use:

  1. How many people would be using the fridge? We chose to use a family of four -- adjust according to your family size.

  2. How often would the typical user of a Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerator go food shopping in a given week?

Armed with that information as our basis, we also looked at:

  1. Available Features
  2. Warranties
  3. Durability
  4. Ease of use
  5. Overall Appearance

(Since we know that appearances are subjective, you can take or leave our opinions on that!)

The Whirlpool Fridge Freezer also known as the Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerators have a number of great features and come in a wide variety of price ranges.

There are 28 Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerator models. Of course, there are others in the JennAir, KitchenAid, Amana and Maytag lines that are backed by the Whirlpool brand (since they are the parent company). But if you're looking for genuine Whirlpool, these are the ones you want to consider.

Special Features

There are a number of great features in the line of Whirlpool side by side refrigerators such as:

  • The In-Door-Ice ice dispensing system: This system allows you to place the ice dispenser and the ice collection bin in the freezer door instead of on the top shelf. This gives you easy access to ice and frees up valuable shelf space.

    The In-Door-Ice system can make and dispense ice as quickly as most standard ice makers (in fact in our tests, even faster in many cases). This system will also feed ice to an ice and water dispenser so you don't have to open the freezer door to get ice.

  • The Fast Fill Technology: which allows you to fill any size container twice as fast. The Fast Fill dispenser housing can easily accommodate both large and small containers and has a rotating faucet that can direct the water to the exact spot you need it. The filtration system of the Fast Fill models is designed to dispense water twice as fast as older Whirlpool side by side refrigerators giving you more, pure chilled water when you need it and without the wait.

  • Most of the Whirlpool Side by Side refrigerator models have 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.

    Best of all buying an Energy Star Refrigerator enables you to receive one of the Energy Star Rebates being offered by the US government.

    3. Whirlpool Side-by-Side Refrigerator ED5FVGXWS

      Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerator ED5FVGXWS

    • Overview: The ED5FVGXWS has a classic design that isn't overwhelming, but if you're looking for a solid side-by-side refrigerator that will perform flawlessly for years to come, this is one model you might want to consider.

    • Capacity: It has a nice large interior at 25.1 cu ft interior which makes it well designed and will meet the capacity needs of a family of four or more.

    • Colors: It comes in Stainless Steel finish only. Most of the time we don't recommend the stainless steel for families. Why spend 25% more and have the hassle of having to clean it so often? Though if you love stainless and don't care, this is one model to consider.
    • Efficiency: This refrigerator is Energy Star qualified.

    • MSRP: $1299.00 but check to see if it's on sale anywhere, usually it is lower than this.
