Product Reviews
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Whirlpool Freezer This freezer is more than I expected. The thing I appreciate most is there is a vacuum when the door closes. All freezers should have this feature but they don't. 1/2/13
Rated 5 out of 5 Whirlpool Try finding a freezer nowadays that has a reversible door hinge. Nearly impossible. Although I would have liked a frost free model, after reading reviews it seems the simpler the model the more reliable the freezer. Have owned this model for 4 years and haven't had a single problem. It is in the pantry and I never hear it. The shelves do freeze up fast, but the walls do not. Lots of door storage. I didn't know it has a drain - have been defrosting with towels! 8/28/15
Rated 4 out of 5 by Seems solid but frost builds up on shelves We bought this freezer to replace a 10-year-old Frigidaire that no longer kept things frozen. With a failing freezer on my mind, the main feature I was looking for in a freezer was reliability and longevity. For this reason I wanted to avoid electronic controls as much as possible, seeing electronics as just another part to fail. There is no indication of electronics in this model; it has no digital display or buttons, just a simple old-fashioned dial. I guess it's possible that there are still electronics hidden inside. This freezer does have a fairly serious drawback. The cooling coils run through the wire shelving. This of course causes the shelves to be the coldest part of the interior. Therefore, the condensation/frost gathers on the shelves instead of the walls of the unit, and it seems to build up very quickly. (This is not an auto-defrosting model; that's another feature I wished to avoid due to its additional energy use. Consumer Reports gave this model a good energy rating.) So anytime you get food out, it will most likely be covered with a shower of crystals from brushing the shelf above. The door takes a strong tug to open; apparently the freezer seals itself by vacuum. I think it may be a bit noisier than some, but it sits in a corner of my home office and does not bother me at all. We've owned it for about a year now, and it has had no problems; I hope it'll go 20 more! 11/6/13
