About - Whirlpool Gold GX5FHDXV[ ]

The Whirlpool Gold GX5FHDXV[ ] is a bottom freezer refrigerator available from Whirlpool. The Gold GX5FHDXV[ ] typically costs $1500 .

Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on bottom freezer refrigerator models like the Gold GX5FHDXV[ ].


Claimed capacity (cu. ft.):
Claimed capacity is the manufacturer's estimate of the volume, in cubic feet, of interior space.

French-door style:
French door models are bottom-freezer refrigerators whose upper compartments have two narrow doors that open similarly to the doors of a side-by-side refrigerator. These narrower doors use less space in front of the refrigerator when opened, and allow access to either or both sides of the full-width fresh-food compartment. Typically more expensive, French-door models are usually 36 inches wide, though some newer models are 33 inches wide.

Water dispenser:
It is normally located in the fresh food compartment.

Comment:
When we researched buying a new refrigerator/freezer the Whirlpool Gold GX5FHTXVY was rated highly as I see it still is. After 16 months the cooling has failed and the repairman just left saying the main board needs replacing and we have to defrost the whole refrigerator as there is ice buildup within the walls. This means losing all the expensive meat in the freezer as well as what we already lost from the refrigerator when the temperature soared to 60+ degrees! Since it is out of warranty we are now stuck with a huge repair bill and having to wait another week for the part to be shipped as the Whirlpool repair man did not have the replacement part. Word to the wise...stay away from this product! I know that they are not built to last as in years gone by but 16 months is hardly old!

We bought this refrigerator about 8 months ago. It has been great; holds the temperature well and is quiet. The only thing I miss are interior LED lights, but that's just being picky.
