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.

Loving the refrigerator, its spacious and shows off our food with ease. The freezer is a bit small and difficult to locate things. We have had food fall behind the pull our drawer and it is difficult to reach.

Entertainer's Delight

By 

from Apple Valley, MN, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I bought this just over a month ago and love it! I entertain quite a bit and regardless of the crowd size, there is always ample refrigerator and freezer space. I love the design of the interior of both fridge and freezer. It is easy to store tall, fancy cakes, 20# hams, lots of produce and condiments too. This is really a well-thought out design made with the large family or entertainer in mind. I can't think of one thing I would change and coming from me, that is an extremely high compliment.

Great Features Easy to Organize contents.

By 

from Jefferson City, MO, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We bought this on Easter Sunday. It was delivered two days later. We have been very pleased with how generous the shelves are and how easy it is to organized contents in this refrigerator. Great interior lighting and a wide generous meat drawer. No wasted space by in door gadgets either. We love how energy efficient it is too. A repairman recommended we get a refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom and we are so glad we did.

Good product

By 

from Lake Forest, CA, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I bought this refrigerator a few weeks ago and it has been terrific so far. We haven't hooked up the ice maker because the freezer is rather small, and we need the space, but we may do it sometime. That brings me to the only problem with the fridge I can see: the freezer is quite small. It fits no more than my side by side freezer did. I had hoped a bottom freezer like this would be more capacious. However, I love the fridge section! Everything is so well illuminated and easy to see.

Roomy and sleek

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Whirlpool Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We chose this fridge due to its consistently high reviews on the major big box store websites. We've had it for about a month now and have been pleased with it. We previously had a side-by-side model, and this fridge seems much roomier, and it's nice having all the food at eye-level. Drawbacks are the reduced height of the shelves, and not as many separate areas in the freezer. It is a little noisy when running, but not too bad - the sound is a little more distracting than our old fridge, but not noticeable from rooms other than the kitchen. It is sleek and does not have all the bells and whistles that drive up price and have the potential to break - this is what we were looking for.
