Not happy with Fridge

Had the fridge for only 3.5 years and had to get it repaired which cost 50% of the original price. I would never buy a Westinghouse fridge again. Show details

Terrible quality fridge with abysmal support

Fan died after 2 years. Manufacturer tries to claim it's out of warranty contrary to Australian Consumer Law. Technician replaces the fan with one way louder and claims it's normal noise. I can hear my fridge buzzing from every room in the house now. Show details

Two flaws that can't be overlooked - crisper drawer and the door

Reliable fridge, but the crisper draw literally falls apart when you pull it out to access contents. I have resorted to sticky taping it together to keep it intact but even this doesn't work properly. It has been designed to come apart presumably for cleaning, but it does not stay together properly and constantly comes apart. It is also very difficult to get back in if you pull it out entirely.
Also, the door to the fridge is designed to stop before closing so needs a hard push to ensure it closes. Again, this is how it has been designed although I can't see the reason for it. It means often the fridge doesn't close and you don't realise until you hear the very soft alarm beeping to let you know the fridge has been open to long.

Design Fault- Crisper Drawer

ongoing issues with the Crisper Drawer lid just keeps coming off tried to fix it adjust it and just keeps falling off not holding it firmly it is some sort of design issue never happened in the previous Westinghouse fridges the company should replace it free of charge specially in my case there is no damage to the part it is just not holding together hope Westinghouse can do something positive about it I have been using Westinghouse fridges for more than 20 years. Show details

Run away

Started out great they reversed the door opening and from thier on it went down hill. The fridge never seemed as cold as it should have been from the start , but then in some places it would freeze food ?, then the freezer decided to become warm and defrost itself. I call out the repairman new fan required, then it happened again, more food lost. Foutunely I had put extended warranty on it or I don't know how I would have got on. Yet my old Westinghouse fridge/freezer is still brilliant . Show details

Regretful buy- I will not buy Westinghouse brand ever again

I bought my fridge in September 2017, now it does not cooling properly. I will not buy Westinghouse again. I called the customer service this morning, in order to check my fridge, i need to pay a call out of $155 and parts. My fridge is not even 5 years old. I am so disappointed. The customer service is not very helpful.  Show details

The freezer

the freezer doesn't maintain the freezing of food correctly. Sometimes it is frozen and then the next day things are starting to thaw. I have made sure the vents in the freezer are not obstructed. Has been an ongoing problem since I bought it new in 2017.
I have had other models of Westinghouse, and have not had this problem.

POOR quality fridge

I bought this westingehouse fridge WTB4600WB
It worked good for 1 half yrs. The compressor has broken.
Luckily still under warranty.
It took 3 days to get their service man to come out to see fridge.
Shame on electrolux that their products have hit such a low, when they used to last minumum 10yrs.
To top it up they say they have no stock and i have to wait up to 1month for replacement, or i can
pay balance to buy another fridge from store credit.
I would stay away from this company in future. They not like they used to be when made in australia! Show details

Disappointed

We purchase this fridge about 4 years ago. It is a good looking fridge and easy to clean. What is disappointing is over the past year I have noticed when cleaning it the walls and floor of the fridge and freezer have cracked. I have decided to purchase another fridge, but it won’t be a Westinghouse. Show details

Giant with many option

This fridge is fantastic. There are some option at the upper part of fridge outside where we can change the level of temperature of coldness. There are good divisions in the fridge where if you are sharing the fridge too, it won't be a mess..loved it. Show details

MARCUUS · 460L Top Mount WTB460 Series

I have had my wtb4600war fridge for 3 years purchased 15/12/18. It has always been noisy at times and you have to actually move it to keep it quite. Now it has defrosted suddenly and won't freeze no matter what temp' settings I use. I have called Electrolux ....... no one seems to care. I would not recommend that anyone buy Electrolux products. Very poor product and no help from seller or manufacturer

Has anyone had when the door is closing, it almost closes then the door "bounces" & stay open rather than gently close? We have just been giving it a good shove when we push it closed but not everyone knows to do this. Any help appreciated
