      Disadvantages

  • Some customers have found a problem with the freezer drawer being flimsy and getting cracked easily when the drawer is pushed shut rather than closing it.
  • Some customers discovered that the bottom freezer shelf was very badly designed, and things that fell off the back of the shelf could not be retrieved without taking everything out of the freezer.
  • What really upset some people was that the warranty only covered the drawer for a period of 30 days , with the cost of a new one being very costly ( about 10% of the price of the entire refrigerator.)

    Excellent space -slighty bulky
    by: Anonymous

    The Energy Star qualified Whirlpool refrigerator (Model number ED2KVEXVL) is a decent refrigerator at a modest price. With three different color selections, this refrigerator offers a lot of variety at about $1200. Each color looks sleek and modern, perfect for updating and renovating a kitchen for the 21st century.

    This refrigerator has excellent storage space and can hold a large amount of food in both the refrigerator and the freezer. It keeps food cold, and unlike other refrigerators that I've owned, has never broken down or blown a fuse in my house. This refrigerator also comes with a purified water system on the door. Unfortunately, this water system leaks after you get the purified drinking water.

    The entire refrigerator as a whole is also slightly bulky for its size- Whirlpool could've reduced the sheer size of the thing and still have the same capacity for storing food. In my small kitchen, it was very frustrating trying to fit the refrigerator between certain cabinets. We found that installing the refrigerator was also a frustrating ordeal? hooking up the water system to the refrigerator proved to be extremely difficult.

    In the end, I had to hire a professional to come and fix the problem. Despite these defects (which could be just a result of my old house), I have found this refrigerator to be one of the best that I?ve ever owned. I love the space for food, ice storage, and even (leaky) drinking water that comes from the refrigerator door. Because of the difficult installation, however, I do not plan on purchasing another Whirlpool refrigerator any time soon.

    It works better then average but was difficult to install.

    Price was around $1200, which was reasonable, but could've been cheaper.
