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.

Poor Performance - after 16 months!

from Evanston, IL

Pros

        Comments about Whirlpool Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

        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.

              Problem with freezer door

                    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.

                                            I bought this refrigerator two weeks ago and I'm very happy with all the space I have now for fruits and vegetables. Everything is at eye level. Also my frozen food is easy to separate.

                                                        Freezer on the bottom is the greatest. Can see what you have in the refrig so much better. Less bending/

                                                              We recently got rid of a refrigerator that is a famous brand...but with all its fame was nothing but trouble. Our new Whirlpool is a beautiful addition in our wonderful kitchen. It is whisper quiet and designed with a great deal of thought. The other refrig had all of the bells and whistles, yet disorganized. Whirlpool designed this refrigerator to be quiet functional and beautiful!!!
