    Key Features

  • The ENERGY STAR-qualified design of the Whirlpool W1TXEMMWS means that it has relatively low power consumption levels in comparison to products that aren’t ENERGY STAR-qualified. The result is a refrigerator that causes less environmental stress and helps reduce your electricity bills.
  • The other great design feature of the W1TXEMMWS is that it is ADA-compliant. This means that it has a construction that meets the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The controls are easy to reach and operate, making it less strenuous on you and more convenient, too.
  • The factory-installed automatic ice maker ensures that you always have ice cubes at hand for you, your family, and your guests who love their beverages cold.
  • The interior of the Whirlpool Freezer on Top W1TXEMMWS features some of the basic elements that you normally find in refrigerators.

  • The biggest advantages of the Whirlpool W1TXEMMWS stem from its solid design. Electronically, this refrigerator is designed to comply to ENERGY STAR standards, which means better efficiency, more energy bill savings, and less consumption of natural resources.
  • Regarding the physical design of the W1TXEMMWS, the ADA-complaint design means that the refrigerator is easy to use and operate. With up-front controls, you don’t have to reach all the way into the back of the refrigerator just to make temperature adjustments.


  • On the downside, one of the biggest disadvantages of W1TXEMMWS is that it doesn’t have other features that may make it a more effective model for those with disabilities. For example, an up-front ice and water dispenser may mean easier access to some of the most common things people need from a fridge (i.e. ice and water).
  • It could have a better defrost system. Still, this fridge does meet the basic standards of a solid refrigerator, and it even has the added benefits of ADA and ENERGY STAR compliance.
