Whirlpool EV188NYWS Reviews & Ratings

EV188NYWS Sidekicks Series 17.7 cu. ft. Upright Freezer with Adjustable Mid Basket, Interior Light, Frost Free Defrost, Gallon Door Storage and Icemaker Capable: Stainless Steel is rated 4.2273 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good freezer for this price point I've had this freezer for just over a month and have not had any problems with it. It is a good freezer for our intended use as a second unit for long term storage. We put this freezer into a utility room (mud room/laundry room) just off our garage, adjacent to our kitchen. This space is nicely finished, so aesthetics were just as important as function in our purchase decision. The freezer looks great and works very well for that space, but I would not want it in my kitchen as a primary unit due to noise. However, my point of reference for noise is our virtually silent, higher-end, built-in refrigerator/freezer in our kitchen. The noise made by this Whirlpool freezer is less than some of the other units we considered and is substantially less expensive than purchasing another high-end built-in. (We did ask sales people in a local store to plug in the units we considered so we could listen.) This freezer only makes noise for a few minutes after it is opened. It works for us because we don't constantly open it and have it in a utility room. I really like the interior space, the deep door pockets, and the adjustable glass shelves. The freezer door closes easily and I do not have to worry about the seal failing if I just close it quickly and walk away. It is a good value if absolute silence is not a necessary feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ive had two of these I bought a pair of sidekicks in 07 fell in love with them. I started having problems with the refrigerator in may of 2013 had two repair men out one tried to fix the other told me the bill was going to be more then a new one. Well I checked into a new one and he was right it was more to fix then a new one. However the design changed since 07 and that meant that I had to buy a new freezer also! So it cost me way way more then a new one but I wasnt going to have a miss matched pair in my kitchen. I do love the space thats for sure but not sure if we build again if I will go with these two units. Sure hope I have better luck with the new units then I did the old ones

Rated 5 out of 5 by from modern and sleek look I bought this three months ago to go into my new $50000 kitchen. It looks great next to my high gloss cabinets and next to the Sidekick wirlpool fridge. the counter depth is a great feature. The unit does not stick out past my kitchen cabinets.The two pieces look like one large expensive commercial unit. It gets a lot colder then a fridge/freeze. If I need to cool beer I have really cold beer in less then 20 min. also I added the ice maker, really easy to install. The unit is very spacious with its 18 cu.ft. Storing a month worth of food and there is still plenty of space left for other things. Great unit!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks are only Skin deep I bought this with the matching fridge 8 months ago and the trim kit to finish the look of my new kitchen. The unit broke after 7 months and now has broken again 1 month later. I have lost 2 freezer full of food. The first time the tech cam out after I explained what was wrong needed to order a part a take 2 weeks to get it. My problem is how do I get faith back in whirlpool once they fix it. so I can put food in the freezer and not worry I am going to loose it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meets a very important need. The Whirlpool sidekick is the second set I have purchased. When we remodeled our kitchen in 2002 we found the Sidekicks and they were the perfect solution for our refrigerator/freezer needs. We have a big family and the capacity along with the open shelves accommodated large items very well. When positioned side by side they are a very attractive unit. It was the first time that I have ever received compliments on appliances.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great, holds EVERYTHING!!! We replaced our older model Sidekick freezer and 'fridge recently and the new ones look fantastic. Very high-end. They hold much more than those pricey units like sub-zero and perform very well so far. We did buy the optional ice maker, but wished it was included. Who doesn't want an ice maker as a standard feature? Other than that, we are thrilled with our new Sidekicks. Vivian L. Santa Fe, NM

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does the job A little noisy at times.........other reviews do warn about it, but if you are putting it in a back room, it doesn't matter. It would be nice to have more in-door shelving.........depending on the size of items being stored, you can end up with a lot of usable space wasted because of the opportunity to use more shelves to store things.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improved new features This is the second set of sidekicks I have owned. I replaced them because the refrigerator quit working after 5 1/2 years. The air flow in the freezer is improved. My previous unit ran the air flow right top of the ice bin container which made of large clumps of ice that were a mess. Love the new air flow
