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.

    Have loved the refrigerator since it was installed. The features are what we were looking for the amount of usable space is great. Like not having the ice and water dispenser taking up space in the refrigerator.

        My wife is extremely satisfied with our new Whirpool 3-French door refrigerator. She is small in stature and having the freezer on the bottom suits her very well. Having both filtered water and ice cubes is great and the interior arrangement is very functional and allows us to use the space to best advantage. Lastly, the price was very competitive and we were able to get the refrigerator delived within two working days.

              The ice bin is in the back of the freezer, hard for kids to reach. Unit is noisy. Freezer drawer is heavy, kids are constantly not closing it all the way. Configuration of shelves in fridge is awkward. Not many choices for configuration. Water dispenser is very hard to depress in in an awkward spot to fill a pitcher.

                  Beautiful fridge & features, quiet, simple, air circulation is excellent - We've had ours for 2+ years with no problems. The door shelves for the milk could be a tad bigger - it doesn't always fit depending on the shape of 1 gallon containers.

                          We purchased our Whirlpool Gold refrigerator last spring prior to a complete kitchen renovation. Friends have the same unit so we knew we were purchasing a quality product. We wanted a French door refrigerator with freezer on the bottom, but didn't want precious inside storage space lost to water and ice in the door. This model is PERFECT! Cold water dispenses easily by pushing a button on the left inside wall, and the ice dispenser is located on the top shelf of the freezer. Both work extremely well. The refrigerator and freezer are both spacious with adjustable shelves in the fridge area. This model also has a shallow drawer at the bottom of the refrigerator for cold cuts, cheeses or platters. The stainless steel outside is stylish and easy to clean. Handles are very sturdy. The seal is tight. Our only 'complaint' if you will is that both doors must be open in order to access the vegetable drawer on the right as the seal on the left door slightly overlaps the left edge of the drawer. We love our Whirlpool Gold refrigerator and recommend it without reservation.

                            I really like this refrigerator, especially the water dispenser on the side of the left wall. The only not so good things are that it make too much noise and the right side door pops and stays open when you close the left side door. I am always double checking and most of the time the right side door is not closed and sealed.
