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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't last!!! I read lots of reviews before we bought this freezer. I should have stayed away from this model. Like many others experiences, this freezer died after just over 1 year. On Christmas Eve of 2016, we had to clean out our freezer and throw away much food! Not very happy with this. No wonder the warranty is only for 1 year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks and works well Been using now for approximately 1.5 months with no issues. Cooled down very quickly initially and used the quick freeze when 50lbs of chicken breasts were added and they were solid after a couple of hours. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whirlpool upright freezer I bought this freezer almost 2 months ago and no problems have occurred to date. It is very quiet when running. Only complaint is the exterior is very hard to keep clean. Fingerprints show easily. Much better than the Kenmore Elite the unit replaced!

Measure Your Space

Side-to-Side:

Add 3-3/4" minimum space to hinged side & 1/2" to non-hinged side for door clearance and airflow. Side-by-side refrigerators have hinges on both sides, so you'll need to allow 3-3/4" on each side.

Back-to-Front:

Add 1/2" to back. Allow extra space for water lines if model has icemaker or water dispenser.

Top-to-Bottom:

Add 1/2" to front.

Cutout Space:

Measure height, width and depth of refrigerator cutout space in kitchen.

Entrance & Doorways:

Measure doorways, hallways and entry points that unit must pass through.

  • Capacities range from 14.4 - 22 cu. ft.

Additional Considerations

Important Considerations
Energy Efficiency

Your refrigerator is one of the few home appliances that run all day, but usage cost is a factor many people forget to consider. An older or inefficient refrigerator uses more energy, meaning a new refrigerator can actually save money.
Aging refrigerators work harder and cost more to operate as refrigerants and seals degrade over time. Units made before 1999 may not meet current Department of Energy usage guidelines. Some bottom-freezer refrigerators consume less energy than a 60-watt bulb.


Disposal

Haul away is available for replacement product purchases. Unhook and move the unit you wish to be hauled away to an area from which it can be easily removed. Haul Away Details >

Installation

We offer installation options for major appliances that do not require gas or water hookup, and are not a built-in unit. Eligible products will display the installation service during checkout. Installation Details >
