Whirlpool applauds the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for taking the first step in addressing concern that some manufacturers underreported energy consumption in their French-door Bottom Mount refrigerators.

"Thanks to the DOE's ongoing investigation, we have confidence that consumers will ultimately be able to make informed decisions about energy savings and environmental impact in this popular segment of the refrigeration category," said Greg Miller, general manager, Refrigeration, Whirlpool North America. "Through our own testing, we know that Whirlpool Corp.'s French-door Bottom Mount refrigerators are the most energy efficient sold today and have fully earned their Energy Star label and rating."

On Nov. 14, 2008 the DOE announced the immediate removal of the ENERGY STAR designation from some competitive French-door Bottom Mount products for sale in the U.S. found to deliver significantly less than the energy savings touted on labeling. Consumers who purchased these refrigerators will be offered a free, in-home product modification and monetary compensation for promised energy savings these products fail to deliver. The DOE continues to investigate the accuracy of other French-door Bottom Mount energy labels.
