Whirlpool WRS526SIAE Reviews & Ratings

WRS526SIAE 36" Wide Energy Star Rated 26.4 cu. ft. Capacity Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Plus System, Accu-Chill Temperature Management System, Adaptive Defrost, in Black Ice is rated 4.4876 out of 5 by 121.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appliance of the Future The style and appearance is so sleek and modern, I feel like I I have the appliance of the future! The chrome accent handles are awesome and cleaning the black texture without streaks is a breeze. I purchased the 4 piece package of the black ice appliances, and it makes my kitchen looks like a million dollars. I did comparison shopping prior to purchasing and the price was not over the top, like some others, yet the Whirlpool Gold, looked more stylish and awesome. They add such a clean and stylish appearance in my kitchen. I have seen other people's high high end appliances, and they don't hold a candle to my black ice. And no one I know says they LOVE their appliances, except me!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Unit if issues with ice maker would get worked out. We have been using this unit four months and we just had to have the ice maker replaced yesterday. Started having trouble with it about and month ago so called for repair since it is still under warranty. When the repair man arrived he said this was the fourth ice maker he was replacing that day. Also not very impressed with the speed of the ice and water dispensers. My sister has a Maytag and it takes about half the time to fill up my water bottle. This unit does seem to make quite a bit of noise when making ice. Temperatures seem to stay accurate and there is a lots of space in both sides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fridge love the look but shelf postioning is weird This fridge is nice the black and stainless is sharp looking. But the inside shelf postioning is weird. I have had to take 2 shelves out becuase i could fit gallons or gallon pitchers on the top shelf if i didnt and then the other one i couldnt put a thb of butter it was that short and that shelf was only tall enough to put a pizza box on it. And the freezer needs to come with 2 other shelves :( because you have a spot that is about 2' high which means plenty of stuff falls every time you open it! And they are not interchangable. I love the ice in the door though!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek, sophisticated & sassy! I love my new whirlpool double door refrigerator in white ice! It's functional & looks great in the kitchen. Long gone are the days of opening the refrigerator door and staring into the black hole. The lighting is incredible. It's like going to a light show every time you open the fridge door. You may be thinking...it's just a fridge, but it's really so much more than that. It's an appliance that will last for years to come and it's one of the most important investments you make in your home so you might as well invest in a good one and the whirlpool is top notch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone who sees this fridge goes crazy over how beautiful it is! This is my first side by side and I was skeptical that I could fit everything in the fridge side but it's just as "roomy" as my old top freezer fridge! I love the drawer in the freezer bottom but the most excellent part is that the ICE IS IN THE DOOR! It's such a space saver! Plus, the ice cubes are the perfect size. And like I said above, this refrigerator is beautiful! Everyone notices it right away and comments on how cool it looks. We went to the store to buy a different refrigerator but when I saw this Whirlpool, I just had to have it. So glad I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this fridge. I am very happy with this purchase. The fridge is really very nice and nice looking - the stainless handles really update the look. This fridge is very quiet. The last fridge I had was a Samsung that was super loud and needed to be repaired 3x in 6 years so I was super impressed with how quiet this fridge was. The layout of the fridge is also well thought out. It seems to have so much more space than my last and I think it's because the venting and lighting is recessed leaving more useable space. If I have any faults with this fridge, it's that I think it needs another shelf or basket on the freezer side. I know they left a lot of room for an extra tall shelf (ie frozen pizza) but I don't need that. That's just a personal preference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best side by side on the market! I got this in Black Ice and LOVE the sleek beauty of this fridge! I looked at ALL of the brands with in door ice and this one was the best design. Having the ice storage in the door opens up space for freezer storage top to bottom. There is a huge amount of freezer storage! The fast ice feature replenishes quickly when you have heavy usage. The ice falling into the storage bin is a little louder than if not in the door, but not alarming. If not for that you would never hear anything from this unit. It runs super quiet! Very impressed and satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product really updates my kitchen! I love the look of this refrigerator, I needed to have white appliances in my kitchen, but I didn't want just plain white, and I thought stainless was getting a little overdone, so I was happy to find this new White Ice line. Tthe stainless accents look great, and really update my kitchen! The refrigerator has lots of room inside, and the freezer is very roomy as well. The drawers roll out nicely, and there is ample room in the door. I also like the blue light in the water/ice door feature. Beauty and functionality all in one nice package!

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.
How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covegrey.
How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.
Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.
What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.
Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.
May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covegrey product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.
Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
When does my warranty start?
Depending on the type of coverage you own, an extended warranty begins at the conclusion of the shortest portion of the manufacturer’s warranty. If the manufacturer’s warranty was 90 day labor and 1 year parts, the extended warranty would begin on the 91st day and continue for the duration of the warranty period. All replacement, commercial and accidental plans begin on the date of purchase.
Why does my plan say "under $1000"?
Some plans carry a dollar value on them. This means that your product's purchase price, excluding tax, delivery and accessories is below the listed price on the contract. It's simply a classification based on the price of purchase of the product under warranty.
What does an accidental plan cover?
If you have added Accidental Coverage to your plan, this plan shall cover unintentional damages as a result of: impact, liquid damage or unintentional physical damage. Accidental Coverage does not cover intentional damages of any kind to the covered product or losses due to theft. Accidental Coverage does not cover willful damage, misuse, damage due to neglect, drops over 6 feet, fire damage or full immersion in water.

Accidental Coverage does not cover damage caused by the use of a product in a way the manufacturer never intended. Coverage for this plan shall begin 30 days after the date of purchase of the covered product.
Is my service plan worldwide?
All plans carry a worldwide option at no additional charge. Contact a sales professional for further details.
Who do I contact with further questions?
Please contact a sales professional at 1-800-299-9470.
