Efficient 4-star energy rating
Long-lasting and durable
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.

this is terrible! major fraud
Bought this fridge at the Good Guys on 29/12/2020. Broke down after one month on 3/2/021. Requested a refund or replacement, but was refused by the Good Guys. So, waited for 5 days for a technician from Electrolux turned up, and replaced a failed mortar! The fridge starting to lose it's cold after 2 weeks post mortar replacement. onto the 3rd week, noticed the outside felt warm, frosting tube round the mortat at the back, puddle of water coming out under the fridge. Onto the 4th week, fridge compartment remained with a tinge of cool, eggs were ...sweating, freezer compartment starting to defrost!!!! Very dispointed with the product. I wouldn't be bothered to negotiate with either the Good Guys nor Electrolux, and just went ahead and bought a new one of different brand . Didn't want to go through all the waiting for someone turning up to fix the fridge and broke down time and again. I am sure there were major frauds with this fridge!!!

I bought a Westinghouse fridge just over 3 years ago and already stopped working. Rang customer service and they were very unhelpful. Don’t waste your money on Westinghouse products you will be disappointed

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!
Purchased for $900.00.
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.
Purchased in July 2016 for $1,000.00.
Traditional looking fridge THAT WORKS ---
We bought a new CHIQ at Hervey Norman in January 20--see another review.
I did not cool down in two days. We are restricted to a 75 cm wide fridge - no many to choose from. When the Westinghouse was plugged in a audible fan could be heard when you opened the freezer door (not outside).-and within hours it was on minus 17 degrees.
The manual is for several models and once you have found out what you have and going from the front of the book to the back again you get an idea how to set the temperature --I started with "quick freeze" -it stays in...

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.
Purchased in September 2019 at Harvey Norman Retail Stores - Appliances for $598.00.
So the first time we got this for nearly a year, then it went broken. Lucky it was just nice under a year. So we managed to get the spare part replaced, although it meant that we needed to arrange other way to keep all the food in other fridge. Very troublesome indeed.
I like the LED light, white bright LEDs
it is an okay fridge, sometimes i can see condensation around the jars, maybe we left it open for too long ( 20 sec) but it doesn't happen to my other fridges.
I really hateee..the doors. these doors won't close unless u push it, the hinge...stop at some point. I dint get used to it for a long time, since my previous fridge would close even if its 50cm away from the frame. so I needed to be very very careful not to accidentally left it open.
Unfortunately I purchased my Westinghouse WTB4600WAL fridge on 26-10-19 and what I now regard as a pile of cheap junk.
Since delivery the motor has been running much much longer than it is shut down and I am terrified at my next electricity bill.
Obviously it is designed to be mainly viewed from the inside, which looks nice and shiny with LED lighting. The adjustable door bins are great, but apparently there is a fault with the crisper drawer jamming and leaving its tracks, that I haven't encountered yet. The adjustable freezer temp is good..., more than can be said for the temp adjustment in the lower fridge section. There is NOTHING stylish about its exterior. It is just an ugly rectangular box, unlike my earlier 15 year old model that had rounded corners and far superior paint finish. On the paper-thin sides and top the paint finish is woeful. It is rough and mottled (cost saving?) so I assume they are designed to be recessed (hidden) within cupboards. Once you have wasted your money as I have, good luck reading the Manual. For the tiny print you will need eyes like a hawk or a magnifying glass. Zero out of 10 here for cost cutting.

The fridge maintains a consistent temperature and does what a fridge is supposed to do. However, I have noticed the fridge makes an irritating buzzing noise from time to time. Opening and closing the doors sometimes stops the noise. The next time it makes the noise, I'll record it and send it to the good guys.

The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
This is a great fridge. We bought 2, a left and right hinged and put them side by side. Almost twice the literage of a double door fridge for about the same price! The fridge and freezer Compartments both keep a consistent temperature and are easy to adjust. Really like how much usable space it has for a single door fridge, compared to the double door one we used to have. The doors are easy to open and close unless you just closed the fridge and try to open it again straight away, it gets a bit of suction and you have to tug it.
This has a lot to live up to - replaced our 42yo kelvinator
Received an email asking for a review on our recent purchase but the link appeared to be locked. Fridge looks good, temperature choices are good and easy to adjust, space/interior design good. However we are adjusting to its different ‘noises’ - which the manual does explain. Also, the power cord was very short.
Lovely clean design
Really like this fridge - I got it as new on eBay and it really is in new condition. Runs beautifully and quiet as a mouse. No leaks of any problems at all. I really like the shelving - super easy to pull out and clean and adjust. Just a simple, well designed fridge from a reliable maker
Very good apart from the crisper draw.
Have had previous Westinghouse fridges which lasted for 19 years and longer for one prior to that. Downgraded to a smaller model due to kids leaving home and fridge needing replacement. Fridge/freezer works extremely well for cooling etc but crisper draw was difficult to open/close from purchase. Crisper draw now continually drops out of runners even after being put back on.
Door set up
Still unpacking, how and where to place the 2 long shelves on the door? Looks a great fridge, my last one as a Fridgedair purchased in 1963. Helen
I have chosen Westinghouse because they are the same company and I expect the same long service from this fridge, as soon as I set it going.
This a bit embarrassing I purchased my one and only fridge back in 1991.My Westinghouse fridge .this fridge hasn't had any parts replaced appart from one globe.the food stays fresh and it chills the beer quick to.when I purchased the fridge I asked for a Australian made fridge because I wanted something that would last.Hope the poor buggers arnt waiting for me to buy another
I love this fridge! I read other reviews saying it was noisy but mine is totally quiet. Good space in both fridge and freezer. It Holds the same temp, i added my own thermometer to make sure the fridge stays between 3°-5° Celsius and it does. You can customize the shelves to suit your needs too. Its perfect.
This fridge has been amazing. Maintains great temperature throughout the fridge and freezer and all compartments throughout.
Quiet fridge and very easy to clean. Plenty of space for all the groceries to fit in. The compartments for example crisper is great size to keep fruit and veg fresh for longer.
Just the fridge we needed
Have always liked Westinghouse refrigerators for durability, last one lasted 25 years. This is the traditional freezer on top model which is cheaper and ideal for the space we had to put it in. We probably could have just replaced the seals on the old Westinghouse and given it a good clean, but it is great to have this easy to clean, quiet, new model!
We purchased this fridge about 18 months ago as our old Westinghouse was playing up after about 8 years of solid use. It's a great fridge that hasn't given us any issue to date. I expect it will continue to keep our food fresh and drinks chilled for at least another 5 years.
Questions & Answers
we have broken the door to the deli tray, how can we get a replacement door
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
Has anyone had problems with this fridge not freezing the food properly?
Also having the beeping sound stuck on even when the doors are shut?
- The series contains 2 fridges: one with stainless steel, the other with a white finish, and both offering a 460L capacity
- 4-star energy rating, which means this fridge is more energy-efficient than other fridges
- Plenty of space to organise different types of foods, including 4 shelves and 1 fruit and veg bin; useful for helping you to organise your groceries efficiently
What reviewers liked about this fridge:
- The shelving system is designed to allow space for as much food as possible. The different types of bins and shelves make it easy to organise and separate foods (that shouldn’t go together).
- The temperature in this fridge remains consistent, and for many people has run well for many years. One happy reviewer mentioned owning a Westinghouse fridge that ran solidly for 8 years.
- Reviewers though this fridge was great value for money, citing an appropriate amount of space and durable glass shelves as being main points of praise.
