This refrigerator is ideal for single/two person household. I had the exact model purchased in July of 1998 at a cost $160.00 higher from a local appliance dealer in Elmhurst than the one purchased from ABT. Kinda wish I purchased the original frig from ABT then. I junked the old one without calling for service. I applied the service call ($125.00-175.00) towards the new unit, afterall, its eleven years old and what else is going to go. The improvements are slight but noticeable. Two separate bins vice one on my original unit plus there is a clear window on shelve above to see the contents of the bins without opening them. The handle is easier to grab being that it is round at the top. It now has a separate butter-keeper that I did not have before. There is a "full" shelf in the freezer from one side to the other vice a half shelf that kept falling if overloaded. The only complaint that I have with the new unit verses the old is that it appears that the freezer is smaller. The vents drawing the cold air down to the refrigerator section are pointed towards the door. The old unit was minus the vents on the floor. Apparently,they were on the top and less efficient.Lastly, I swear by Whirlpool as I have three other major appliances bearing their name and I couldn't be happier. Very reliable.

My old Whirlpool "Gold" model was better
While I am certainly happy to hear that this refrigerator is very energy efficient, I am bothered by a few design aspects, which, compared to my 1998 Gold refrigerator, are inferior:Read complete review
While I am certainly happy to hear that this refrigerator is very energy efficient, I am bothered by a few design aspects, which, compared to my 1998 Gold refrigerator, are inferior:The first is, there is no light in the freezer section.. a great disappointment.Secondly, the two freezer door shelves are much too narrow compared to the old one; another disappointment.The "Gold" model had roll-out shelves in both compartments; this has none.The plastic bins are much too flimsy on the doors, and the large pull out drawer feels like it is going to completely fall out.Overall, I'd say this is not an upgraded product.

Terrible temperature control
from Minneapolis, MN
Single temperature adjustment would not keep food frozen and not freeze food in the refrigerator portion. Can choose frozen lettuce or soupy ice cream. Multiple repair calls and no solution I am currently waiting for total breakdown so I can buy a different refrigerator.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Not a good buy
from Covington LA
After 3 years we have lost several gallons of ice cream. About once a month it stops freezing then goes back to freezing. Makes no sense! The refrigerator will freeze your lettuce. Too small for more than 2 people.
frustrating drawer and center temp control
from stroudsburg, pa
Drawer for meat and cheese falls off track constantly. Temp. control is smack center of top of refrig. making it impossible to put milk in center....Freezer sits too low, making a person have to stoop over to see inside refrigerator (and we're short!). came with a dent... Only had two years- had to buy due to space in new home for fridg. Thinking about putting in the garage since it's such a frustration and getting something else. Daughters have different brands and no problems. Dealer was supposed to come and try to fix drawer and replace door. however, due to severely harsh winter and our driveway, we could not get them to us and warranty expired. Also, freezer does not freeze food well. have to use other freezer for ice cream.
Good refrigerator at a good price
from Nampa, Idaho
Our garage refrigerator was dying and we got a great price on a new Whirlpool. So far it works great and it is very quiet. Roomy bright interior.We expect to see a drop in our electric bill also, but have not had it long enough to find out how much.I have recommended Whirlpool to a friend who was interested in our new purchase.
from taneytown, Md.
It has been doing a fine job so far. It does not run near as much as the one I replaced.
from Farmington, Utah
I don't like the interior water dispenser very good. But since we are using is as the extra fridge in the garage, it isn't too much of a problem. The shelving space isn't as efficient as I would like, I wish it were more flexible.The FreshFlow produce preserver seems to be very useful so far.

from Plymouth, MA.
Recently purchased a new home which came with a new Whirlpool refrigerator. I would have preferred the freezer on the bottom but am very happy with what I have.I find the capacity great! Moving from my previous home my refrigerator had very little space. Now I have more room than food.The shelf arrangement is easy to use and well organized.I am completely happy with my refrigerator!
Lots of space.
By Sunshine C. J.
This one is very simple but sleek. Lots of space inside and the 2 drawers are of very good size.
Piece of junk
from Davis ca
1 day after warranty, plastic pieces broke off. It died after only 3 years-oh- and poor customer service. Back to Kenmore for me!
