About - Whirlpool Gold GB2FHDXW[Q]

The Whirlpool Gold GB2FHDXW[Q] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator models like the Gold GB2FHDXW[Q] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Temperature performance:
This combines results of tests measuring the accuracy of initial temperature settings along with how well a model 1) kept optimum temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer at the same time; 2) kept temperatures even throughout each compartment; 3) kept temperatures constant despite changes in room temperatures; and 4) maintained set temperatures even with very high room temperatures.

Energy efficiency:
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two models with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.

Noise:
Noise level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.

Comment:
I have read the reviews but this is not a noisy refrigerator, unless you live in a church. We got this same frig 12 years ago and it ran 11 years and the compressor died. The cost to replace was less than to repair, almost. When we looked at new units we could choose any frig but the design, size and functionality and price was the best so we bought the same model. <br /><br />We are building again and we will absolutely consider this for our new house.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I was happy with this refrigerator, although it was quite noisy, until the freezer stopped working 16 months after we bought it. We had purchased an extended service contract, which was fortunate because the manufacturer's warranty had already expired. The company we bought it from deemed the repair too expensive and has refunded the purchase price. I will not buy another Whirlpool refrigerator.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Major Design Flaw - needs a recall

Pros
Holds Temperature Well
Cons
Freezer Water Leakage
Freezer-water Leakage
Ice Buildup Causing Water
Best Uses
Comment:
Do not buy this model product (GB2FHDXWQ ). Poor design causes ice to build up in the freezer section, then it melts and leaks onto the floor. If I was able to rate it less than one star, I would.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
