This is the first large refrigerator we have ever owned and it really works well for us. We have only used it for three weeks or so but we love it. I have seen earlier reviews saying that the fridge was noisy, a criticism I question. I cannot believe how quiet this fridge runs. Our only mistake was not getting the water filtration system included but that was an error on our part. The fridge is elegantly styled and fits perfectly for our lifestyle.

I have had the same problem with leaking as the other reviewers (TWICE now). I hope Whirlpool is paying attention because this is clearly a problem that is not confined to only a few people and the company really needs to address this issue and provide a fix. Water pools at the bottom of the freezer and freezes and eventually the ice gets so thick that it drains out onto the floor. The first time it was fixed under warranty ("drain clog"), this time it was not under warranty so I was determined to fix it myself. What is happening is that the drain under the drip pan (under the freezer coils) is getting frozen over and clogged with ice. Eventually the entire pan fills with ice and then begins to spill onto the freezer bottom, then eventually onto the kitchen floor. This probably first occurred if the freezer door was left partially open which allowed extra condensation to form inside. If you own this product you know this is VERY easy to do...you really have to throw your weight into the door to close it all the way (which is a another complaint in my opinion). Naturally, the drain is not easily accessible and it is not simple to unclog. So, there are two possible fixes: 1) Defrost the freezer. Clearly the simplest way to get rid of ice. If your freezer was anything like mine, there was a ton of ice accumulation so I'd suggest letting it defrost for at least 24 hours. Trust me, this is the easiest method and will yield the same results as fixing it yourself or even having a repairman come out. 2) I only did it this way because I was still trying to figure out the actual problem, so again I suggest just defrosting. But to access the drip pan, you have to take off the freezer door and the racks and take off the back panel inside the freezer. However, you can't take it all the way off unless you remove the ice maker, but it is a flimsy piece of metal so I was able to just bend it to access the pan and expose the coils. You have to chisel what was an INSANE amount of ice (I wish I could post a picture on here) out of all the piping, the pan, and the drain. I realized I couldn't get full access to the drain so I had to remove the back bottom of the freezer to be able to clean the drain from the bottom. More work than it's worth. Bottom line: It's an easy fix so DON'T CALL A REPAIRMAN if not under warranty (unless it is another issue). Again, Whirlpool needs to address this, or at least let customers know of this problem. Seems to me it is a design flaw...there is a tiny little slit in the bottom of the drip pan that spills into a 1/4 inch wide drain. I'm no engineer but that seems like an avoidable problem to me (how easy is it for that small of an opening to get frozen over?). And I'm just speculating about the freezer door being left open causing extra condensation building up, maybe it's a bigger problem. Another irritation is that the temperature control unit is right at the front in the top middle of the fridge and takes up about half of the width of the top shelf. Vertical space on the top shelf is tight anyway, and any taller items (e.g. gallon of milk or a two gallon pitcher) will not fit under that unit, so you have to pull them out from the SIDES, which of course severely limits accessibility. Otherwise, it is an "ok" product. No complaints about performance and it is a sharp looking fridge.

Good Replacement

By TexMexMom

Comments about Whirlpool Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Enjoying the wide space of this French door model. We definitely love the Stainless look in our kitchen. Two minor flaws if you can call them that: Loud water filling of ice maker (caught off guard can cause you jump) and odd placement of temperature control at front middle of top shelf makes it difficult to maneuver tall items around (items need to be removed to be able to pull out others so as not to tip them over to get them out).

Sweet features

By reganp

Comments about Whirlpool Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I bought this product nearly a month ago. It is a great Whirlpool product with nice features. a few downsides- only makes 6-8 pieces of ice at a time, the freezer light often doesn't come on (due to a sticky switch?), location of water dispenser is inconvenient..

Wife enjoys having space for her full size sheet cakes, also for her weeding cake, the shelves are removable. Lots of space for everything, we enjoy the deli meat and cheese tray. We can keep everything organized in its own space. We are happy to have bought this model and style.

Best Fridge Ever!

By Veggie girl

from Vancouver, WA, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I have had my Whirlpool Gold for over two years and still love it! I have had refrigerators with the freezer on top and also a side by side, but having the freezer on the bottom is beyond the best! Adjusting the shelving is so easy, the shelves in the doors are deep enough to hold all I need them to and the drawers are a great size. If I needed a new refrigerator I would buy this one again without a second thought.

good product

By acdc10210

from St Paul, MN, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

This was one of the refrigerators offered to us by our builder. I really like all of the features except the water dispenser, which is inside the refrigerator and hard to access when I'm caring for a toddler, etc. Also, there is no ice dispenser other than the container of ice in the freezer, which is not easy to reach. The french doors make it so that large items can fit, which works out great for hosting.
