About - Whirlpool WSF26C2EX[W]

The Whirlpool WSF26C2EX[W] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, side by side refrigerator models like the WSF26C2EX[W] 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 refrigerators 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.

Would not buy again
Bad Ice Maker
Limited Shelving Options
Poor Layout
Best Uses
Small Kitchens
Ice maker started making small ice cubes then limited amount of ice cubes. Had warranty package and they chose a buyout not cost effective to fix, the ice maker is in the door, they would have to replace the whole door. This is a pain now I have to shop for another refrigerator. Not how I want to spend my time again. Something this expensive should not have to be replaced so soon. What happened to appliances lasting.
