  • Another advantage of this unit is being Energy Star compliant it uses much less energy than one would expect and is environmentally friendly as well.

  • All the shelves in the door are fully adjustable, and some of them have a durable rubber-plastic liner , which can be removed and washed.

  • Although there are two baskets in the freezer – they actually take up quite a bit of usable space which reduced the usable capacity of the freezer. Some customers have discovered a few irritating noises.
  • The interior water filter requires two hands to properly dispense the water which is a real nuisance.

    Highly Recommend - Great Refrigerator

    Whirlpool Refrigerator GB2SHTXTS I purchased this refrigerator about a year ago and I can say that I really like it a lot. I have it in stainless steel and it goes well with my decor. It was quite expensive and pretty much top of the line but it was worth purchasing.

    It has spill guard glass shelves, which stops the spills from running down the refrigerator. It was easy to install and it looks great in my kitchen. One thing to note about this refrigerator is that it is energy star qualified. Since I am a ?green living? person, I am glad that it is energy efficient.

    Pros of this refrigerator are that it has a freezer at the bottom. You don?t go into the freezer as often as you do the main part and that makes is convenient. So you go to the bottom when you need the freezer instead of it being at the top.

    Another pro is that this particular refrigerator gives you filtered water which is really nice. You don?t have that ?city water? after taste and it is very cold and refreshing.

    This refrigerator has cons also, it only comes in three colors and that is limiting to people that want more of variety of colors. It is also really large and it takes up quite a bit of space and that is another con.

    So even though I was able to get this refrigerator for my present home, I wouldn?t have been able to fit it into my older house and that would have been a shame. Overall, I would recommend this refrigerator to anyone that is out shopping for one. I think that you would be very pleased because it looks great and it is made well.
