A bad fridge
Has stopped working within 3 years It does not refrigerate any more, In the previous 33 years I have used only 2 refrigerators, one Electrolux and one Amana. Very disappointed.
Broken after 2 and half years
Never had fridges broken after two and half years. This is the worst fridge I ever seen. I am expecting a good quality appliance from Westinghouse. Never buy anything from this brand again.
Love our new Westinghouse
Upgraded due to growing family 2 months ago from our smaller white top mount Westinghouse and have had no regrets.
It was the best looking stainless steel fridge that fit in our relatively small area (less than 890mm wife)
The freezer compartments fit what feels like double the amount of food compared to old fridge/freezer even though new one is only 100L overall bigger.
The fridge feels like it’s also designed well and space in the door trays is more than adequate.
We never hear it running like our old fridge occasionally and haven’t had any...
Purchased in June 2019 for $1,200.00.
Worst Fridge Ever
When we bought our house we thought we'd "invest" in an expensive fridge that would hopefully last years and years. The first fridge was replaced within the two year warranty. The second fridge was replaced within the two year warranty. The third fridge started to ice up massively. I manually defrosted it which helped for a couple of months, then it started icing up again to the point I couldn't even open the freezer door so I got an emergency independent fridge technician over to look at it. He recommended turning the fridge/freezer off for tw...o days and said hopefully that would resolve the issue. I had to throw out a lot of food, at least $100 worth. After two days I turned the fridge back on but I could still see a gap in the freezer and sure enough within a day the freezer was fully iced up again. I called Electrolux and they said my fridge wasn't under warranty anymore and they didn't think they could get a technician out that day (Friday) and Saturday was booked out but they'd see what they could do and call me back within an hour. After not receiving the call back within an hour and taking into account callout fees and parts and labour, my husband and I agreed not to throw good money after bad and ended up purchasing another brand new fridge which I'm hoping lasts far longer than the Westinghouse one did and doesn't need to be replaced so often. This fridge is utterly useless and a complete waste of money. I provided Electrolux the opportunity to respond to this review via mediation and they advised they could only have assisted if I still had the fridge for them to inspect. I'd had it taken away for disposal when our new one was delivered - why would I keep a broken fridge that was leaking all over my floors and who has room to store this? Electrolux also asked to see the service report from the independent fridge technician I called out, however I did not have one, in fact the technician didn't even charge me for the visit and he did not physically repair the fridge, only made the recommendation to switch the fridge off for two days. I am now in the process of making a complaint to the industry ombudsman.

Nothing but problems. leaked and damaged our floors. Got a 2nd fridge and still leaks. 2 months and still waiting for tech to come out. Would not recommend this brand
I bought the fridge brand new approx 6 months ago and I have absolutely no regrets buying it. The fridge is so easy to clean inside, has functional lighting and the best thing is not having to bend down to see where everything is. It has a beautiful finish and the fingers marks wipe off easily with a clean damp cloth. The ice cube tray could've been placed in a better position in the freezer, however it is accessible. I highly recommend this model if you are looking for a french door design that is great value for money.
Worst Fridge I've Owned
We have had nothing but problems with this fridge. Bottom freezer kept icing up and was very hard to open. Looked at many times and then replaced. Second fridge just as bad. Still same faults as previous fridge. Started beeping tonight and temperature panel light up. Fridge not getting down to temperature. Leaking, fridge hot to touch and noisy. Very disappointed as was an expensive gridge

Bought this fridge 18 months ago to replace Sharp fridge under product warranty,good size easy freezer compartment good lighting doors easy to open reviews at the time were not complimentary but I cant fault this product has done every thing we have wanted.Freezer compartment has drawers easy to get to,with ice trays.
This fridge design is so lacking in efficiency! Terrible use of space. Crisper doesn’t open completely. You actually need to remove the door shelves to take the crisper out for cleaning.
Bit of plastic break off and fly across the room from time to time. Super crappy fridge. Can’t wait to replace it when we renovate!!! Top shelf won’t cool even when the rest of the fridge is on coolest temperature.
We bought this fridge after a lot of research, we are extremely happy with this product and i ticks all the boxes as far as we were looking for with a fridge, the service we received from the Good Guys in Osborne Park was fantastic, could not have been more helpful, they answered any questions we had straight up without having to get clarification, this showed they were interested in the products they represent and value
So spacious and lots of compartments
Highly recommend,Easy for whole family to use with lots of features lots of room for the food and drinks.a brand you can trust, good value for the size and features worth every penny.keeps fruit and vegetables fresh for longer in own compartments,enough for the whole family,would definitely buy this brand again
I love this fridge
The ten is good it is cold and don't change to much the freezer is perfect doors are easy to open and close there is alot of room in both the fridge and the freezer to put all ur stuff shopping for 2 weeks fits in the freezer with some room still spare
It is a beauty never given any trouble yet had it a while now about 12 months it's an excellent refr
It certainly does maintain good temperature in all compartments, it is quiet and easy to clean I like it very much would recommend it to anyone particularly if they are a family for it is ideal for a family. nice big fridge easy too fing everything in ti as it's easy to see what's in there.
I love my fridge! It doesn't make loud noisies, temperature is excellent and the fridge is so easy to clean and maintain. I had one problem where i found some visible dents that may have occurred during delivery. Westinghouse immediately replaced my fridge. I definitely recommend Westinghouse and especially the french door fridge!
This fridge operates very efficiently one of our favs is that the freezer is on the bottom and has loads of storage the fridge keeps the fruit and veg nice and crisp for longer periods of time in the specially designed slide tray at the bottom of the fridge plenty big enough for the 7 of us
Great Fridge - Loads of Room
I purchased this fridge about 6 months ago and it has been fantastic. There is masses of room inside with an interchangeable shelving system and heaps of extra space on the inside of the doors. It stays a consistent temperature and has extra features that work well, like fast chill for room temperature drinks / wine and eco mode for when you’re away. I’ve never really heard it running, only if I stand next to it and listen for it.
The only negative is that the freezer section isn’t enormous due to the curved drawers, so can’t fit as much as I would like, but still very manageable size!
We love our new fridge
we have kids so opening half of the fridge being a double door is a huge bonus!.. keeps everything beautifully cold and the draws in the freezer helps to keep everything sedated and in order. The built in ice trays are a great idea. We love our new fridge. happy customer
Good fridge with some minor flaws
The good: easy to see through shelves and keep clean. Love the way the freezer drawers have been designed. Pretty quiet (not ultra quiet though).
The bad: the temperature control isn't very accurate- when set to 5 deg C my digital thermometer said it was 8 deg C which is why some food was going off early. Since adjustment has been fine. Would have loved a butter conditioner.
The ugly: the spring that holds the flap on the left hand door doesn't pull it back far enough so it either grazes the door or worse hits it sometimes. Given someone else...

This is Great Refrigerator
It is great value french door refrigerator, It has a very compact form factor, but it doesn't compromise the interior volume, which on of the biggest. Even though it gets loud sometime when you open the door for too long. but overall it is good cooling, it has anti spilling shelf. And also it is known for one of the energy saving fridge.
June 8th 2018 Update: This is Great Refrigerator
It is very one of the best french door fridge i ever had. Its i small form factor but spacious on the inside. although It gets loud when you open the door too long to compensate on the temperature lost, but overall its very good. specially the anti spill shelf

Questions & Answers
Do you find the freezer drawer opening a pain? Does stuff get lost in the deep drawer? I don’t like the idea of the pull out door but I think it’s the best option for the space we have, so just after some opinions from experience.
Not a pain at all, but it does require some getting used to. We bought this fridge for its reverse design as I have a bad hip and bending down/over into the fridge part was quickly becoming a painful task. There is a lot of space in the bottom large drawer, so we store all the bulky products there. Frozen veggies and any items in bags go in the middle and the top one can store quite a bit of frozen meat. We do buy our meat etc fresh and don't freeze, so maybe factor this into your decision-making. The ice tray is of poor design but I personally can live with that and I still have no regrets at all :)
The freezer handle came off yesterday. One of the plastic handle supports needs replacing. Where can I get one.
Our freezer handle broke off recently 29 months after purchase. W’ty is 24 months. Westinghouse advised new door needed as one of the small plastic attaching lugs is broken. New door $245 + handling + $150 for installation. (can’t be done by homeowner.)
Has there is lightning in freezer?
