About - Whirlpool Gold GI6FARXX[Q]

The Whirlpool Gold GI6FARXX[Q] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator models like the Gold GI6FARXX[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 level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.

Poor Quality Craftsmanship
Attractive Design
Easy Access
Didn't last
Best Uses
I owned this refrigerator for less than 24 months when the evaporator started leaking and the compressor started burning hot. Paid around $1500 for it and the repairs would have been over $1000! What a huge disappointment!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
Water leaking onto floor
Very nice
Water Leaks Onto Floor
Best Uses
This is a very nice refrigerator. We were very disappointed however when we discovered water leaking onto our hardwood floor. It seems they have a patch kit you can buy and fix it yourself but who wants to do that after paying $2K for a refrigerator.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
Ice maker quit working after 19 months!
Bad Ice Maker
Best Uses
My husband never did like the way the ice cubes dispensed. I should have complained sooner.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
