Default Frigidaire vs. Whirlpool?
Model Number: FFU21F5HW   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: Less than 1 year   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


We are looking to buy an upright freezer, and with the features and price range we are looking at, we have narrowed it down to three choices. Two of which are Frigidaire, and one is Whirlpool. The two Frigidaire models are FFU21F5HW (frost free, 21cf), and LFFH21F7HW (Lowes exclusive, frost free 20.5cf). The whirlpool model is the EV201NZTQ. Interestingly enough, this one shows up as 17 cf on some sites, and 20cf on others. I think that's a typo.

Anyway, you don't have to comment on the individual models if you don't want, I guess we're more curious about your opinions between the two brands. We're mostly worried about reliability and longevity. We plan on buying an extended warranty, but we are hoping to find one that will last much longer than 5 years.

Any advice you might offer would be appreciated, thanks!

I hope this doesn't spur any Ford/Chevy type flame wars here. :-)

I have the Frigidaire and I like it but some of the reviews have not been encouraging. I am not sure who makes the Whirlpool but don't think Whirlpool does. I might mention I got the Frigidaire to replace a 40 year old Whirlpool that was running fine. I really think it is a matter of personal preference as none of the appliances are made as well as they used to be.

I would get the Whirlpool, Frigidaire still has compressor/ refrigeration system problems sometimes within a few years of use. Forget about an extended warranty, will not pay for a freezer load of spoiled stuff.
