  Both the Amana A4TXNWFWW and the Whirlpool W4TXNWFWW are basic, no-frills, traditional top-freezer refrigerators. Only 28" wide and slightly more than 5' tall, they will fit into fairly tight spaces. Whirlpool owns Amana, and there are almost no differences between these two models. Neither model has an ice maker or water dispenser, but the Whirlpool has an optional ice maker kit. Both have reversible doors that can be installed to swing either left or right. These refrigerators are typically chosen for a small kitchen or as a second refrigerator.

Models: A4TXNWFWW (White, Amana), A4TXNWFXB (Black, Amana), A4TXNWFXQ (Biscuit, Amana), W4TXNWFWQ (White, Whirlpool), W4TXNWFWB (Black, Whirlpool), W4TXNWFWT (Biscuit, Whirlpool)

What People Are Saying:

On the Amazon bestsellers list for top-freezer refrigerators, the Amana A4TXNWF has garnered primarily positive user reviews as a quiet and reliable refrigerator that fits into a tight space and holds groceries for one or two people or a small family that doesn't store a lot of leftovers or frozen food. It earned almost entirely high marks in about 30 user reviews at Home Depot; although several were disappointed with the 6"-long freezer shelf that Amana advertised as allowing "ample storage for frozen foods", more than 90% recommend this product. The Whirlpool W4TXNNWFWQ gets primarily high marks in user reviews at Lowe's; the few complaints posted center on noisy operation and the layout of the interior space.
