LED Interior Lighting

LED interior lighting is longer-lasting and uses less energy than incandescent lighting. Plus, it casts a bright light on the contents of your refrigerator so food looks as it should.

Fast Freeze The Fast Freeze Option helps you chill large amounts of food fast at just the push of a button. How it works: This option freezes large amounts of food fast, by driving freezer temps 10 degrees colder than the lowest setting.

Electronic Temperature Control Convenient, up-front electronic temperature controls let you choose the ideal temperature for whatever frozen foods you're storing.

Temperature Alarm A temperature alarm notifies you when the freezer's temperature rises to help you monitor the ideal environment for your frozen foods.

Frost-Free Defrost Frost-free defrost automatically prevents frost build-up, so you'll never have to empty the freezer for a manual defrost again.

Optional Icemaker An optional icemaker makes sure there is plenty of ice on hand.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Unique product

Icy 9/6/2017

We are still awaiting a fix on the ice maker. We were told it was on back order. This is a replacement of a 15 year old same model. Although the outside dimensions are the same we had to restructure the walls so that the door would open fully.

Wish I had heeded the Warnings.

DaveJustRocks 8/8/2017

I wish I had listened to all the other reviewers, but I was captured by the look of these in a friend's kitchen and figured there's no way it could be this bad. Like many others, I have designed the kitchen with these specific dimensions, and am stuck on this path. Problem one: The opening measurements in the installation instructions DO NOT include enough space to actually open the door. You can not install the freezer or refrigerator at the end of a run of counters and against a wall. You need to add about 3" of additional clearance. We found this out AFTER installing $10,000 of custom cabinets and $3000 of custom granite.... Problem two: Freezer didn't work from the second I plugged it in. This is of course discovered AFTER installing the ice maker, and AFTER modifying the cupboards, and because of construction delays, 4 months after the unit was delivered. Seller says it's Whirlpool's problem, Tech says it is an internal leak common to the units, and that it is not repairable, Whirpool saying I waited to long, and that their warranty doesn't cover replacement, only repair. We'll see how this ends, but right now, I'm unhappy and don't have a freezer. I also have a trim kit that I can't use, and can't return because I needed three pieces of the kit.

3 years and 7 months

Unhappy with new design changes 8/1/2017

After having units for 3 years and 7 months being told repair was going to be $900. I decided to replace the freezer. To my surprise / disappointment the door does not match my old fridge. Facing having to replace fridge I found with some modifications the old door will fit on the new freezer. It was pretty obvious that the design changes were not needed since mostly cosmetic.

Not very pleased.

Doc 6/20/2017

My wife and I recently bought a house and purchased the refrigerator and freezer sidekick combo. Within the first year the refrigerator had to be repaired 2x. Here we are now at year 2.5 and my freezer has now stopped working and the part needed to repair it is discontinued. Luckily a few months back I purchased an extended warranty because the insurance company called me last week to let me know that I am being given about half the value of my freezer back and that I am going to need to purchase a new freezer. We have been very displeased with the Whirlpool sidekicks that we purchased 2.5 years ago to say the least.

Terrible Product/ Customer Reliability

Jessica D 3/4/2017

My Husband and I renovated our home last year and purchased this refrigerator/ freezer. At 8 months old, the freezer began malfunctioning. The freezer breaker was re-set and the temperature settings were changed, however, the food inside continued to melt. I contacted Whirlpool who could not find a repair company until SIX days later. Given the delay, Whirlpool made no effort to replace the freezer sooner, expedite a repair, nor compensate me for any of our lost food, which was hundreds of dollars ( I am a small food business owner). TO BOOT, one company come out and told me the machine was working properly. It wasn't until I (homeowner) contacted a SECOND repair company, did we learn about a recall on a piece that regulated temperature. Thank goodness for that or we would have had to buy a NEW freezer. Whirlpool you were NO help at all and totally mishandled the situation.

Family of Chefs

Family of Chefs 2/14/2017

It keeps thing cold and looks nice. It fits in my custom designed kitchen. It replaced a previous Whirlpool that leaked constantly and continually had a large amount of ice accumulating below the bottom rack. Nothing else fit in the kitchen without paying thousands to have cabinets and counter redesigned to fit new appliance. The new configuration is NOT good. Fewer shelves on the door. I liked the shelves to hold butter, boxes and plastic containers of vegetables. You added a bin and removed a shelf. Bins are terrible. I am constantly shuffling things to find what I want. I like things neat and stacked not thrown in bins. We are a family of chefs (graduated from culinary school) .

Great space!!

Happy housewife 1/23/2017

So glad I let my husband have his way this time. Even though I am the "queen" of my kitchen! I never had ever seen a side kick before and I am so happy with all of the room it had! No more not being able to see what's in the fridge or freezer because it's too crowded and you have to move 10 containers to see what's in the back. I love it!!!

Not a good choice

Real cook & Two chefs 12/11/2016

This is my second set of Whirlpool sidekicks. I was unhappy with the first one as the refrigerator constantly leaked water all over the floor and the freezer died. I had the repair person 4 times. This second Whirlpool set is a stop gap until I can afford a higher quality product or reconfigure the kitchen to fit a single refrigerator/freezer unit. I also do not like the new internal configuration. Some who loves to cook buys this type of unit. People like me who cook and bake and have two chefs in the house do not buy ready made pizza or pizza dough. I miss the shelves for condiments. The pizza shelf is totally not useful space for me! I hope I make enough money soon to replace this unit as I do not trust the quality. I wanted American made but I want quality and a configuration that fits a real cook not someone who heats stuff filled with preservatives. Whirlpool shows up as Maytag and my previous Whirlpool refrigerator and freezer do not live up to the TV commercials about Maytag reliability.

Poor Product Quality

Susan 10/19/2016

At this moment, I am waiting for a repairman for my freezer - for the second time. I bought both the refrigerator and freezer w/icemaker and they were installed on Sept 7 2016 to replace two leaking sidekicks which were about 10 years old. No other fridge/freezer will fit in the space they were in. They look very attractive. But the ice maker stopped working about a week after installation. The repairman installed a new ice maker on Sep 23 2016. It began leaking about a week later. So today on Oct 10 2016 I am waiting for the ice maker to be repaired (probably replaced) again. Not a quality product in my book. I would definitely buy something a different fridge/freezer except that I'd have to remodel my entire kitchen. After spending thousands of dollars on new appliances, it's very sad that they are so poorly made.

Patty 6/17/2016

So far so good. I know this unit has received less than stellar reviews but it's the only unit that would fit in our space (we bought an extended warranty). So far I'm liking them both. Although I think the space could have been used better in both units. They're set up more like a commercial fridge/freezer without all the niceties of what you might be used to in other refrigerator/freezers like moving shelves and drawers and cubbies for odd shaped items. But, all that being said, I like them.

This unit replaces a slightly smaller one which had become severely overcrowded. This one gives us enough room to neatly stack our food items.
