Just what I wanted!
5 Star Review   By ladypoley on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2013   

This is the best freezer. Had a chest type before. Not fun reaching to the bottom and moving things to find what you have. Love the shelves and ease of getting things out. Had an upright growing up and now so so so happy to have one again.

Fills our need
4 Star Review   By H1A2L3F4 on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2013   

This is a basic box that advertised as 15+ cubic feet ... Actual capacity is about 9 cubic feet. It has only 3 widely spaced shelves, which means lots of items would be stacked on top of each other or a lot of precious space would be wasted. I solved this situation by getting 4 add-on baskets, each 1 foot wide that has an open front and arms on top so that it slides onto a shelf and hangs below the shelf. The bottom bin compartment is accessible only by pulling a front guard downward, which means that items tumble out because the back of the bin slopes forward. Another little complaint is that the top of the door has an upward curve instead of being straight across ... It looks just plain silly. These are just annoyances, however. Amazingly, the freezer reached 20 degrees within an hour of turning it on and it has continued to work very well for these past few weeks. It has no lock. For all my quibbles, it does serve our need ... I hope it lasts as long as our old one did ... 30 years!

OMG it's quiet!
5 Star Review   By adraz06 on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2013   

I got this freezer on sale, but even so, it is probably worth the regular price. Its a no frills freezer, but this is the quietest freezer I ever had! (my third one). I'm single, so it has plenty of interior space as well. You can't really put smaller items in the door (i.e-sausage, bacon, hot dog packages, etc) because they will slide through the openings. But I've been using it for my bulky items, like veggies. The bottom section/basket, is a little awkwardly slanted, but it is easy to reach and a big ham or turkey would probably fit in their just fine

Thought it was a great deal but today it is broken
1 Star Review   By arbonna on Home Depot - Jun 1, 2013   

I thought it was great up until opening it today and everything in there was defrosted. Checking on warranty now.

Loads of shelf space! Is very quiet!
5 Star Review   By ej1900 on Home Depot - May 14, 2013   

I was pleased that I received calls from the merchant at each step of the freezer's journey to my home. The freezer arrived at the exact time and date of the posted date of delivery. The journeymen identified themselves with badges and went about the business of setting up the freezer in a proficient and efficient manner. And, they remembered to ask about disposing the old freezer. They were in and out of my home in a very short time. Excellent service!

Beware if you want to reverse the door
1 Star Review   By Disappointed on Home Depot - May 9, 2013   

I am writing this after over 3 months of effort trying to get Whirlpool to fix a problem with this freezer. It seems there is a design flaw if you want to reverse the door as it is advertised. With the hinges on the left side, the light will not shut off because the tab on the door does not hit the switch. Whirlpool even replaced the freezer with a different model but the new one has the same problem and the only solution (and Whirlpool finds this acceptable) is to glue a shim on the door so that the shim hits the switch and shuts the light off. Whirlpool was adamant that they would not give me my money back and I have spent entirely too much energy on this freezer, so I will have to accept their ridiculous fix and hope that the shim will last the life of the freezer. Very disappointed with Whirlpool. My repairman (not employed by Whirlpool) is as disgusted as I am.

It is a freezer
5 Star Review   By evetg on Home Depot - May 2, 2013   

After 2 months, it is still freezing the way I expect it to. That is all i expect out of a freezer. Way too early to rate the dependability.

Just What We Needed!
5 Star Review   By rvrader on Home Depot - May 1, 2013   

Did lots of shopping around on line to read reviews on comparable models of similar brands and found that this upright had the best ratings and all the features we wanted. There are just two of us and this freezer has more than sufficient space for our needs. The main complaint of other brands we considered was how noisy they were and how continuously they ran. This freezer is very quiet, does not run constantly, and has a firm tight seal. We are extremely pleased with it.

Very well designed
5 Star Review   By Cyclonefan on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2013   

I have only had this freezer for a short time, but we are pleased with the design and compartments inside as well as the frost free feature and inside light. If this is a freezer that also has a long life, for the price paid, then excellent was the proper rating.

Missing drain
4 Star Review   By Cyclonefan on Home Depot - Apr 19, 2013   

I received my Whirpool freezer today 4/19/2013. I believe the quality will probably be as good as the others that have reviewed this model EV160NZTQ 15.8 cu. ft. frost free freezer, however on the online Home Depot page where the item lists specifications, it listed Drain---Yes. The one I received has no drain. This was on of the features which was a priority for us personally. I now have the option of returning the freezer (48 hour window). and do not know if or how to reorder and be sure the next one would have the drain. It does make me wonder if Home Depot has knowledge that their customer is not getting all that their website indicates that they should receive with respect to features from the manufacturer.

Great purchase
4 Star Review   By Wanda on Home Depot - Apr 2, 2013   

We are loving our new Freezer. Our old freezer was not frost free so we battled with space all the time because of the ice building up on the shelves. We do not have that issue any longer. My husband would prefer one more shelf but I like that we have the ability to stack the Schwan's boxes on that shelf. I am amazed at how quiet the freezer is as well. Definitely a great choice made.

No More Defrosting
5 Star Review   By 8165437 on Home Depot - Mar 16, 2013   

The main reason we purchased this product was because I was fed up with the messy, time consuming ordeal of defrosting my old freezer, not to mention all the items that got burried in there. Love the light that comes on every time I open the door and the shelves in the door make it much easier to locate items used on a regular basis. Being Energy Star Rated makes us feel better about power usage. We just love our new FROST FREE Freezer.

Best freezer for the money.
5 Star Review   By Befreed on Home Depot - Mar 12, 2013   

My old 34 yr old freezer finally died. Purchased this one from Home Depot after researching online and asking a refrigeration repairman what were some of the best brands for dependability. Purchasing from Home Depot was simple and fast and the shipping was free to my address. I have nothing but POSITIVE things to say about Home Depot and my new Whirlpool freezer: It runs very quietly and does its job.

Great freezer with minimal features
5 Star Review   By erabbit on Home Depot - Feb 26, 2013   

26Feb13 -- 1st off -- its quite! I chose a manual defrost freezer to avoid the up-down temperature swings in an auto-defrost unit. 15 cu.ft. is more than adequate for our 2 person household. The box appears lighter and more fragile than the old unit. I wish it had a flashing light and audible alarm when the GFI cuts the power to the plug. Home Depot (that is GE service) delivered when they said they would; removed the old freezer (at no cost) and put new one in place. New unit cooled down in about 8 hours to a temperature near -0- degrees. Maybe we are good-to-go another 38 years like the last Whirlpool freezer did!

Satisfied Customer
5 Star Review   By HappyCamper on Home Depot - Feb 15, 2013   

I read the reviews on this freezer. I must say that I am a very satisfied customer. Delivery was on-time, refrigerator was still in box and got cold very fast. It is extremely quiet and has a great seal when you close the door. I am very happy with my purchase. The free delivery was a plus.

Seems to work well
5 Star Review   By Floridafoodie on Home Depot - Feb 5, 2013   

This is a pretty large upright freezer. It seems to work well and be energy efficient. It is a bit loud during some cycles. I notice it only because we put it in our sunroom, where I like to read. It wouldn't be an issue if it were out in the garage.

Excellent Product

Great Freezer so far
5 Star Review   By Chris on Home Depot - Jan 23, 2013   

The freezer was delivered within 3 days of ordering it. The upright 15.8 cu ft. size is good for garages, doesn't take up too much space. The freezer was very cold within a few hours. It was filled with over 300 lb. of deer meat and has had no problems keeping meat frozen. It does run very quiet and efficiently, though didn't have other freezers to compare with, esp. the "noisy" Frigidaire everyone comments on. Minuses- no door lock feature; no alarm if door is ajar; and no temp readout/feedback. However, I am very happy with my purchase so far. Hopefully it lasts many years.

best value of any store that carried the same product
5 Star Review   By Andi on Home Depot - Jan 2, 2013   

No delivery charge was a plus-delivered on time. the guys who made the delivery did an excellent job and were very professional. I ordered this online for my daughter and son-in-law and I would use Home Depot again. We live in another state so this was very convenient.

No complaints
5 Star Review   By Foammogul on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2012   

This was rated #1 by consumer reports for sound, temperature, and energy efficiency for an upright. No complaints. A rollout on the bottom would be nicer than the rack but I didn't think the $100.00 extra cost for the same model with this feature and a light that said it was working was worth the extra money. Home Depot's 10% off sale price was the best on the internet.

Very happy
5 Star Review   By Happycamper on Home Depot - Nov 1, 2012   

Searched on line for about a month looking for a freezer to put in the garage to store some extra things i could not fit in my freezer in the house. They still had last years model. it was 80.00 cheaper and it is really the same freezer. The delivery was on time. it was still in the box. I really like that. No dents or marks. they took all the tags off put the handle on the door. and put it right where i asked. no problems Got cold right away. the sides got hot as it was cooling down. but as the freezer got cool so did the side walls. Went to costco filled it up and been running great for the last month. very happy,

Fast Freezing

Quiet efficient freezer
5 Star Review   By Salome on Home Depot - Oct 9, 2012   

Been looking to buy an upright freezer and when I saw this, I knew it was what i wanted. However when I actually got it, I must say I was impressed with the design, its quietness and how quickly if froze stuff especially popsicles for my 4 year old who was particularly thrilled with that feature. Definitely a great purchase.
