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.
Purchased in October 2019 for $850.00.
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
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
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.
Pay the price
When shopping for whitegoods i try to buy good name brands. I purchased my westinghouse because of this. I happy to pay an extra amount to avoid issues later on. It's a good dependable buy, it's quiet and maintains an even temperature. Obviously the fridge you buy should depend on how many people in your household, so this may not be for you.
Good for the money
This fridge is obviously not the most premium on the market, but for the price you pay it gets the job done. Plenty of ways you can rearrange the internal shelving to optimise space and plenty of on-door storage too. My only downsides are that the temperature controls for the fridge and freezer are both analogue (expected for the price though) and that the factory ice cube tray-thing that comes in the freezer takes up a LOT of room, you will want to remove it. Overall I would definitely consider if you're in the market for a budget friendly fridge.

Purchased from Harvey Norman at around $150 less than other retailers and then got a $150 rebate from Westinghouse as well, so net delivered promptly price was around $744.Very quiet, keeps its set temp and food in freezer does not get too cold. Glass shelves easy to clean and hold minor spills. Plenty of convenient trays and compartments. Minor item is ice trays do not empty easily into tray, you have to thaw them a little first. But that is pretty common to most ice trays in fridges in our experience - only our large W'house with ice maker in other house does not do that!
What a great, robust fridge.
I'm about 18 months in, from upgrading. This is a much larger fridge - and for only 2 adults, it has been a perfectly working fridge.
It holds a large variety of specific foods (eggs, meats, cheeses, medications) in special compartments, and the crisper works a treat.
Quiet as a mouse and super easy to clean. At times the tray's can be somewhat difficult to remove, given the fridge door only opens a certain distance. I like my ice cubes large, and the ice cube tray only gives smaller sized cubes.

The nearly just ok of an average bunch.....but...
The greatest feature is the LH hinge. The best feature of Appliances Online is their price & (eventually) service.
Sadly I am not overly impressed with what is only slightly better than the equivalent in bottom mount design (I tried for 2 weeks), but still nothing compared to the old top mount 540L sadly unavailable as new anymore LG.
Unfortunately these new models are not as high or as wide as in the past, so high liter versions are not suitable in older fridge spaces, so, drop to a poor 460lit.
The greatest feature is the standard...LH hinge, but that is the only great feature that is particular to us. It is efficient and quiet to a point, but not wonderfully so - average and better than some, so half marks here. The stars are only just in my spec acceptable level.
