Its good looking and spacious. Having moved from a side by side to a bottom freezer was absolute heaven! The french doors allow great access to put in larger/wider containers. Being able to have the gallon of milk and juice in the door is a big bonus too. The crispers can be set to veg or fruit and really keep them fresh longer.

There were only 2 negatives which really aren't all that bad!
The ice maker filling is louder than expected but it is only a few seconds so not that big of a deal. In this model there is no filtered water dispenser even on the inside - easily solved if I would have chosen a much more expensive model with ice and water on the outside.

The layout is not maximized and leaves you with limited storage areas. The icemaker doesn't work after one year and according to online boards and chat rooms, there are sensor issues with most of them causing costly repairs and replacements. A recall should be done but hasn't. Now to spend $100 plus labor to get it fixed. Also, it doesn't crush ice. A feature my husband was expecting and we took for granted would be there.

        Comments about Whirlpool Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

        I bought this refrigerator a little over a month ago and was so excited to finally get a new one! I had been putting up with a Maytag that had been leaking water out of the freezer every time it defrosted! Had it repaired 2 times which was almost $300 each time! It really helped to brighten up my kitchen - by getting rid of the old black side by side! It is hard getting used to the 2 top doors - remembering what I put on which side - the interior lights are so nice and bright!! My pull out shelf is a constantly popping off! Every time you open it - - the top pops off! So - I am unable to use this feature at this time!! I will have to get this repaired - or exchanged! My girlfriend got one very similar to mine and her pull out is made a little different - - she has NO trouble with hers!! Other than that - - I really like it so far!!

              We purchased our new refrigerator a couple of months ago and found it is just what we were looking for. We looked around and had a hard time finding just the right one until we came across our Whirlpool. We wanted French doors with freezer at the bottom but did not want the water and ice dispenser on the door. This one fits our needs perfectly. We are very happy with our choice.

                    SLOW ice maker! The light switch in the freezer always sticks(freezes), so the light doesn't turn on. There isn't much room in the freezer either. On top of that, the doors always manage to stay just barley open. So you have to remember, to always give them that little extra push.

                          Purchased this about a month ago for my daughter's place and she is extremely happy with it (so am I!). It has plenty of room and maintains a consistent temperature.
                          I would recommend this to anyone looking for a refrigerator.

                                We purchased this fridge based on long family experience with Whirlpool. Overall, it's good, but there are some things about it that we're not happy about.
                                Pros: Plenty of shelves, can configure door and regular shelves as you wish. Lighting is very nice. Lots of places to stash items. Our produce seems to last longer than it did in our previous (20 year old) fridge. We like the slide-out shelf in the freezer. The appearance is good.
                                Cons: The left door doesn't close easily (there's a 'flipper' to seal between the two doors that requires some effort to close). You cannot adjust the size of the ice cubes---and it doesn't produce ice very quickly. Our #1 complaint: there is a little cover that flips up when you pull out the bottom storage drawer in the fridge. If you attempt to lift that cover yourself (instead of allowing the drawer up pop it up), it come off in your hand. The pins that it attaches to are way too short.
                                Overall, it's nice, but I'd like these details to be better executed. I'll give it a 'recommend,' but it's close.

                                      I got the fridge about a month ago. Works great but the cover on the deli drawer keeps popping off. I think my wife has it over packed she doesn't. Our only complaint is that the one produce drawer has a crack in it and we didn't see it til after the delivery when we went to clean it

                                            I have owned this refrigerator for 16 months and up until a month ago agree with all reviews. HOWEVER, at 16 months, the unit became noisy AND frost developed in the freezer section. I called for service and paid $295 for replacing the blower. AS I did NOT purchase an extended warranty - I called Whirlpool and was told that there was nothing that the manufacturer would do to stand behind their product BECAUSE I had not purchased the extended warranty at the point of purchase.
                                            With a family of seven (five children) - it is extremely frustrating to have the refrigerator fail to perform AGAIN within less than 20 days of the replacement part at a cost of $295!

                                            When I just spoke with Whirlpool about the issue - I was educated that Whirlpool corporation, the manufacturer of the refrigertor - contracts out to repair personnel, and there is no relationship with the repair portion to service on the appliance! So again, I must schedule the appointment - earliest is four days from now. The repair "drill" is that the technician checks the appliance and then orders a part and you wait another week (7 - 10 days) to have the part installed.

                                            Scheduled prior service for same symptoms and first appointment was August 7 to diagnose ant then August 12 to install. The refrigertor stopped working on for about August 4 - so no refrigerator from August 4 - 12 and the appliance is 16 MONTHS OLD! Now have the same symptoms and same drill!

                                            Prior appliance was Frigidare and was 22 YEARS OLD.. still running at the time I purchased this updated French Door model. Though I LOVE the design ... CANNOT continue to have it stop working after 16 months AND then 20 days after paid additional $295 to replace the blower.

                                            Anyone else having the same problem after 16 months of service.

                                            All reviews are after purchase and in the initial "love" stage... PERFORMANCE for more than 16 months or 20 days after replacement is not acceptable.

                                            I expected more from Whirlpool! Very Dissatisfied AND further dissatisfied after finally talking to a customer service rep - took the time to be on hold for 17 minute to TALK to someone that was "pleasant" though Whirlpool is not stepping up to stand behind the appliance.

                                                  So far in very happy with the over all performance of this product the only problem I can say having own this for two months is the design of the cover to the large tray shelf at the bottom.The problem is the top pops off very easily due to the hinges being to small there should have been longer or have a lock them to prevent this.

                                                        I love the refrigerator portion. It is nice and roomy and you can see all your food. I hate the freezer it doesn't close and often we find if ajar. Most freezers you just push and they close but this one stays open. We have lost a lot of food. The light also burned out the first month and I couldn't fix it.
