The Most Comprehensive Whirlpool Fridge Glossary Ever!
6th Sense™ Technology
Whirlpool employs a host of sensors to check and manage multiple features in your appliance for a seamless user experience.
What this means for you: Whirlpool’s sensors auto-detect and adjust features like temperature control, freshness and other parameters.
6th Sense Intellicool™ Technology
There are 3 sensors on the exterior of the door, in the freezer and the fresh foods compartment that interact together to give better moisture retention, faster ice making & faster bottle cooling at lowest energy cost.
What this means for you: Sensors take in the outside temperature and accordingly tweak the temperature inside the fridge and freezer in order to give better cooling but at lower costs.
