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.

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.
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.
Nice Big Fridge, Very Quiet and Very spacious Inside,not expensive
Very nice big Fridge for less than $1000 and very spacious inside. Very spacious space for Freezer, very energy efficient, very quiet, Nice Glass shelving instead of racks, hence easy to clean. Sliding divider for fruit or vegetables is very convenient indeed. It has also a warning alarm when door has been opened for too long which is also very convenient feature.

Pretty good - except for the crisper drawer - it won't open/close easily
If you don't need to use the crisper it's a great fridge. I love that the shelves on the door are half length so I can stagger the shelving for taller bottles.
I've had it for about 10 days and so far it's keeping things cold and the freezer is a great size.
However, the crisper draw is seriously flawed. I have trouble opening and closing it. I currently have left it open about 2 to 3 cm so I can use it. Luckily the fridge door still closes. I'm thinking that this defeats the purpose of a crisper draw.
I'll be seeing if I can return it.
First one was DOA, second is good.
Unfortunately, the first one was DOA. It "worked", but did not cool anything. In fact, water in the freezer did not turn into ice even after 10 hours. We called the store and they said it's quite common with these fridges, which had me worried to get a replacement. The second fridge came that day and worked just fine until this very day (about 7 months). It's fairly quiet, large and convenient. The only complaint is the cheap plastic they used for the drawers - more often than not they get stuck, start to creak & are very hard to pull out and push in. Definitely not premium.
great in size and handy all the shelves and door options can be moved around the door handle somehow was cracked last month 10 months into warranty and Westinghouse 10/10 for customer service replace the whole door quickly and now questions how it was broken looking and buying Westinghouse freezer simply because of the customer service

Great value for the price
Quiet fridge, very easy to clean. Like the alarm as it reminds everyone to keep the fridge door closed. Cools very evenly, haven't had anything frosted or frozen in the fridge section. Crisper is great size and keeps everything fresh. Lots of room in the door section. I like that I can store tall items in fridge, takes 3 litre milk easy. The freezer is good size for everyday use but not if you want to buy in bulk. I like that the fridge and freezer have 2 different settings. The freezer stays chilled even after adding new items to it.
Good but noisy
Super good, have it as outdoor freezer in the padio and got a few splashes here and there but over all its going tough. Bought it due to the fact that i have no more space in my small house and can't have a bigger freezer/fridge so i had to take a risk and put it in my backyard padio, the freezer is very good and cold, i had a blackout for about 13 hours frozen items didn't exactly stay frozen but sure stayed cold, I bought the freezer 5 years ago and still going tough, Just had to replace the water for better cooling after it got so dirty, this freezer is very simple to clean and empty out, the freezer is EXTREMELY quiet and standing directly next to the freezer is not to loud but sure is noticeable
Basic, but does the job
I have only had this fridge a week and have found it a bit noisy, but generally good value for money in comparison with others.
It has loads of room in both fridge and freezer compartments and has awesome LED lighting in the fridge compartment, but no lighting in the freezer.
Excellent fridge - no complaints whatsoever
This is an excellent fridge - efficient and keeps food as fresh as possible. A fantastic upgrade and the best fridge we have ever owned - lots of space for a family of two and our food is in the best condition we have ever had. Freezer space is generous and the ice maker is a good asset.
Westinghouse of Lemons
After installation it was immediately known the next day this Westinghouse fridge model was a lemon... 14 hours later the Freezer compartment did not freeze water into ice cubes, frozen goods thawed, fridge compartment temperature was insufficient to keep Milk cold.
Rang the retailer JB-Hi Fi who advised us to call Westinghouse who were apologetic and swift to send an emergency service man within 24 hours to assess this refrigerator.
Upon inspection it was concluded the whole fridge was faulty when the freezer section doesn’t work. It wa...s not considered repairable. A replacement was sent to us within 8 days, FREE of charge. An excellent service although what does one do in the meanwhile without refrigeration? Fortunately our old (2003) Westinghouse fridge was kept and sufficed the waiting period. Amid all this inconvenience I feel Westinghouse did their best, but rate this model WTB4600 2 stars – Bad and further would not recommend its purchase. Please note this model has been replaced by the newer Westinghouse WTB4604SA / WTB5404SA model. The Fridge itself has 3 thin glass shelves that allow 4 levels of storage. Adjusting shelf height to accommodate groceries can be a challenge as there are fewer grooves to choose from. Fridge door alarm sounds after 2 minutes if kept open and is not self closing. Even though our replacement fridge operates; its temperature needs to be set above default settings for contents to be adequately cold, safe from spoiling.

good all round
We collected our new Westinghouse fridge from harvey norman after seeing them reduced online by $124 off the catalogue price,
The fridge is a good size for a small family, the glass shelfs are different from the usual wire shelfs, you have to be more careful when cleaning them and the whole modern fridge has more shelving compartments etc, so it took a little longer than usual to give it it's pre-use clean,
The fridge is well laid out with the salad drawer and a handy cheese, butter drawer, it's spacious, the cool air is entered by a fan and ...
Not a bad fridge
Had this fridge for a few weeks now and generally happy with it so far. The only problem is the crisper. It's so small! It doesn't open and close smoothly unless you use 2 hands.
The fridge runs quietly but makes some pretty weird noises at times. From what I've read this is normal (sounds like a yeti moaning softly , can be quite soothing)
All in all I'm happy with my purchase so far.
Bought this brand new fridge last Friday 3 March through Appliances Online & it simply doesn't work. Fridge & freezer both not cold. Milk has gone off along with other food. Called Electrolux Care. No empathy from staff member at all. Didn't think I would be having problems from Day One. Very disappointed.
Great fridge large with alog of space inside. Keeps food nice and cool and so big inside. I havent been able to fully fill it yet. Definately a family fridge
Kids are always going in fof cold drinks. Love it
Westinghouse is a very reliable product. Will not buy anything but.
Westinghouse for me
I chose Westinghouse a well known Brand for decades always reliable and trustworthy, quiet and easy to clean and maintains correct temperatures. A pleasure to have in my kitchen and the LED lighting illuminates all shelves as well as the big spill proof glass shelves. The fruit and vegie divider a nice addition as well as the twist and serve ice cubes. Plenty of door storage and easy inside controls. The Brand Westinghouse Refridgerator for me always.

Questions & Answers
I have a brand new this model fridge delivered this morning. We waited 4 hours as instructed before turning on it has now been on for 6 hours and is not cold at all. Is there something I have missed to do.
turn to page 18 of the manual it can be a bit tricky doing the setting I eventually got mine right on the mid setting 3 blue lights illuminate and stay on till you change to a colder setting. give me the old dial setting cold, mid and colder inside fridges any day much simpler than these Electronic controls. try putting a thermometer inside the fridge to test. I have had my fridge for 1 year and it is going really well. hope this helps a bit.
Hi Kate, I have checked the inside of my fridge with a thermometer and is a cool 2deg on mid setting. Cheers
Hi Not Happy Kate,
Marina from Electrolux here.
If the issue you have raised with your new Westinghouse WTB4600 is still not resolved at this time, can you please email me your contact details at firstname.lastname@example.org attention Marina.
We would really like to try to assist you.
Hi , we bought a WTB4600WAR less than a month ago and for the past 2 days the deep freezer is not cooling at all to the point that my frozen goods are all melting, I have adjusted the temperature controls but no improvements.
Hi there. The only advice i can suggest is to check and make sure that the air flow vents in the rear inside of the freezer box (there are four, almost one in each corner) don't have food pushed up against them, which of course would restrict vital airflow. Otherwise it may be a dealer assist problem. best of luck with that.
I would call the place of purchase and tell them your issues and take it in for an exchange. Im living with my fridge after experience this issue and defrosting the whole unit it now sounds like a motorbike in the kitchen for Pretty much half the day i lost the warranty so am stuck with it until i can sort it out i think we just bought a dodgy fridge Westinghouse never again
This fridge should be taken off the market in my opinion. The problems that you're having Nick with the freezer are similar to the problems I am having with the fridge. I have to keep my fridge at the coolest possible setting (coldest) to have it work properly otherwise it doesn't store my food at ideal temperature. I bought a fridge thermometer and this tells me it's at 4 degrees which I believe is good. The other day it went up to 10 degrees for some reason, then dropped back to 2 degrees but has finally settled to 4 degrees again. I say contact your place of purchase and Westinghouse. I had always thought Westinghouse was a good brand but now I have my doubts as I also have an oven by Westinghouse and that doesn't cook at the right temperature. All I say, is I will never buy Westinghouse in the future.
