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 4.3665 out of 5 by 161.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad Design I had my kitchen redone and purchased this to replace a 20 year old GE. I have to say the 20 year old GE was a better made refrigerator than this one. This one is poorly designed--not enough shelf options in fridge and in the freezer. Having shelves in the freezer rather than roll out baskets is not practical. Not everybody stores boxed foods. Having said that, most of the refrigerators I looked at were similar in that respect. This fridge doesn't seem to have enough space compared to my old GE; yet, they have the same cubic footage. Another thing is that the temperature in the fridge section seems to fluctuate too much. The best thing about it is the ice and water dispenser.

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 5 out of 5 by from Best Fridge I bought this fridge when they first came out about 2 years ago. We redid the kitchen and wanted to update it. When we build the house 31 years ago we had a whirlpool and its still working in the garage to this day, so they are build the LAST. I hadn't had the new fridge 2 weeks and the ice maker when out. Well in the 2 years that I had it, it went out 6 times, each time they replace the ice maker for free. On the seven time I said I want a new fridge, just like it, cause this one must be a lemon. The store gave me a new one and I haven't had any problems at all and I love it...... Whirlpool makes a great product and they stand behind it, which is something you do see anymore.......

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 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.
