    a good investment
    by: Anonymous

    We bought Whirlpool Gold Side by Side refrigerator GS6SHEXML about 5 years ago when we bought our house.

    The refrigerator has been a good investment to say the least. Since we use a lot of our food to freeze and use it later on we like the large freezer with this model. The cooling has not changed a bit in the last five years of our use.

    Water filter needs to be changed every six months. Water Filter indicator light turns yellow to give a warning and than turns red to give you ample warning and reminder to do this task very easily. It is as easy as turning a light switch on/off. We have changed one light bulb in the past five years which should give a good indication of the quality of the product.

    The refrigerator has a good capacity and ample of shelf space for all food items for a growing up family of four.

    Both the freezer and refrigerator section are well lit and bright. The doors have good layout for holding quick to retrieve food articles as well.

    The side walls of the refrigerator are black while the front is stainless steel matt finish and not pure stainless steel.

    The water dispenser does give ample amount of cold water and makes enough ice for a large family. We have never run out of ice during our 5 years of having this refrigerator. The water dispenser has a night light feature, which is helpful too.

  • Great cooling.
  • Ample capacity.
  • Great layout

  • PVC/Plastic handles on stainless steel don't look so great.
  • The quality of Stainless steel is not the best quality since a magnet will stick on the stainless steel as well.
