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.

Doesn't last!!!

12/30/2016

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.

Yaj 7/22/2016

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.

Whirlpool upright freezer

Allen the hunter 4/11/2016

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!

This upright freezer is really nice. The Fast freeze is a great added feature. It also has a temperature alarm and you can add an ice maker to this model which is one of the main reasons we bought it.

We added the optional ice maker and are very pleased with both. I would have liked an additional light lower in the freezer.Sometimes it is hard to see things in the lower baskets. I would buy the same freezer again.

Shut down after 2 weeks

11/14/2015

After 2 weeks of running without a problem I woke up one morning to a 50 degree freezer. Everything inside had defrosted. I unplugged it and plugged it back in and it started working again. Then after about 4 days the same thing happened. Getting warranty work done now to replace the part (with presumably the same part). It will have little confidence knowing this could happen anytime.

Freezer Delight!

10/26/2015

I just bought this Freezer after suffering with a chest that never defrosted and I am thrilled with the convenience, being able to see what I want to take out - not having to dig through everything! The freezer looks good - is efficient and I am very pleased with this purchase.

Great Features and Size

10/26/2015

Purchased this Freezer because of its features and size. It is only 30" wide so it fits perfectly in my location. Other brands were too wide at 34". It is 18 cu ft, frost free and has a low temp alarm.It freezes fast and is very quiet.Only thing I think should be changed is the location of the low temp alarm. It rings inside the unit. So, it is difficult to hear. I think the alarm and associated light should be located on the exterior door or bottom front of the freezer. It would be easier to see/hear etc.

Big wheel Bob 10/8/2015

We purchased this freezer in September and we just love it. It replaces a small Whirlpool(11.5 cubic) that we purchased in the late 80's. This new freezer has so much room, it has a place for everything. Lots of storage inside, I don't know how we did it with a smaller one. Love this freezer. I think Whirlpool is the best

Tons of Space!

FreezerUser 9/23/2015

I bought this a few months ago as a replacement to my broken freezer. This one has much more space and the storage on the door is great! The only negative is that the door lock feature is VERY difficult to engage, thus I never lock the door. Not that this is a huge deal, but it was the only thing I could find that I didn't like

DON"T BUY

8/31/2015

I bought this freezer in April and within the week it defrosted all my new food. The alarm had such a faint buzz that I thought I had a electrical problem with some wiring not a freezer problem. I had been standing in the garage at least 10 minutes waiting for my husband before I even noticed the buzzing. I don't call this an alarm and the repair man can not make any adjustments to it. My freezer was then repaired with a new part because of it defrosting everything. The door to the freezer was damaged when it came in so they had to order a new door. The next door came in with the gasket torn, so another door was order and the lock wouldn't work on the second door. Another door was ordered and this time the service man but all kind of washers on top and bottom of the freezer door. I was so upset because every time they take the door off and on this is stretching the holes larger on the freezer box. The repair man told me the lock worked this time and I took his word for it. Well, I found out the lock still doesn't work, so they are ordering the fourth door. I ask whirlpool just replace the freezer and they refuse. Each door cost 820.00 and I had 4000.00 worth of doors on this freezer and the alarm still doesn't work. It doesn't make sense that they would just send a new freezer, but they will go to all cost to repair this junk. I am tired of staying home to wait for a repair man. I will never buy whirlpool anything again. Yes, the freezer looks beautiful and the shelving is nice, but that is the only thing good about this product.

Beautiful Freezer

Gloria the organizer 7/23/2015

My husband recently remodeled our laundry room. That is where we had our Whirlpool freezer. After the room was completed, my husband surprised me with a brand new stainless Whirlpool freezer! The freezer has so many compartments and shelves. Since I am an organizer, it makes my job easier. I love the sleek design of the freezer and the LED interior lighting. We gave our daughter our old freezer and she is so happy with it!

I've had my freezer for about a month now. Absolutely love it! I had a hard time picking out a freezer to replace my old one due to size limitations. Whirlpool was the only company that would accommodate my needs. ALSO, the only company that I could find that had enough shelves. Plus, the pull out drawers are wonderful. Great find!!!!

So Glad We Bought This

6/27/2015

We've only had our Whirlpool Freezer for 2 months, but I'm in love with it. It was such a great decision for us to purchase this one. After looking and looking for a freezer that was smaller than our 21cf freezer that had problems, we finally found this one. Our space is small and finding a freezer that was less than 34 inches wide seemed to be impossible. We were seeing all the new freezer increasing from 32 to 34 inches regardless of their cf. None of these would work for us, then wa-la, we found this 18 cf that is 30" wide.....yay. It also comes in stainless which perfectly matched our washer and dryer that sits next it. Love it. Love the size, love the storage and love the led lite. Great purchase.

Freezer Never Worked, Service Staff Horrible

Bob Deitrick 6/23/2015

I bought this freezer a month ago and it has not worked from date of delivery. After numerous attempts to work with warranty service staff, I hope it will be fixed soon. The product is a lemon and I hope the Whirlpool service techs will do a better job in the future, that is if I buy another Whirlpool product.

My wife and I love this freezer.

Patio Guy 6/12/2015

It was economical and practical. We bought it and the matching refrigerator together. Some minor flaws that I would change though. First, the handle on one or both of the appliances needs to be reversible. We are placing ours outside on the patio in a side-by-side manner and would like to swing the doors opposite of each other. Second, they do not have the same height dimensions. One is about a half inch taller than the other. Not sure why. You don't notice it unless you're really paying attention though. And last, the LED lighting is great but I have always wanted some rear-facing lighting because when it fills up, the light can get blocked. Aside from my minor pet peeves, it is a 5 star selection.

I was looking at a different brand if freezer but when the salesman said it was no longer available, my heart sank. Well, he showed me the Whirlpool and not only was it the size I was looking for and stainless steel, it was designed to hold food that you actually purchase like pizza! It works well and is gorgeous - I couldn't be happier with a freezer :)

I bought upright frezer because I have back problem. I did not want to bend to search foods. And most I love about this Frezer is color! Most of frezers are white color which looks little cheap to me. we are size of 4 family and it's planty room to store the foods.Very easy to organize and find the foods you need right away.

OMG!! This is a very, very, nice freezer and I didn't know how nice until it was delivered and set up. I recommend this to anyone. There's lots of room inside to freeze anything you want. I bought this freezer for my daughter because one of the chest freezers she had stopped working. If I personally needed one, this one would be perfect.
