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.

I am frustrated with the lower door gasket (freezer is on top). The top end corner area of door doesn't close all the way, letting out the cold air. So, for the past weeks I've tried everything such as: applying a little vasoline to help with the seal, putting scotch tape over area where air is coming out, taping the door shut tight, even putting little strips of leather inside the door gasket lip to prop it outward so as to grip onto the refrigerator better. At first I followed the trouble shooting suggestions in the product direction booklet. All have worked (separately or in combo) temporarily to some degree, but at the end of the day (or in a couple hours) the gasket loosens again and cold air escapes. It's now my daily routine to tape the door 3-4 times a day. Whirlpool was recommended to me by a relative who sells refrigerators at a major dept store, and I'm disappointed. Also at some point when I first got the fridge, it froze my food in the lower compartment. But now that doesn't happen, so it may have remedied itself. (or maybe the gasket leak keeps it from freezing). The upper freezer door gasket works great, and I'm very happy about that. For quality, overall all it is fair to average. I almost put in a poor rating due to the ongoing frustrating gasket issue on lower door, but the rest of the fridge (so far) seems okay.

This is a second refrigerator. It is the perfect size for the lower level kitchen.

Spacious and very quite. I would like to have one more shelf for the refrigerator.
Looks good !

I had trouble with hearing a noise every time I opened ,or closed the door. After I called Whirlpool's service they had a serviceman check it out and then it was replaced. The replacement also makes a little noise, but I can live with it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

the refrigerator was supposed to come with 2 control ( freezer/Refrigerator) but only had one control. it is difficult to get the correct temperature in both compartments
The design and ease of all the compartments/bins.

Love our new Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer. It keeps everything so fresh and makes acess to all items very easy. The design of the doors with their bins is very utilitarian.

The Best in Simplicity & Practicality
from Manhattan, NY
Bought this 3 months ago, replacing our old GE. Got this for the positive reviews and for the price. My son who loves to cook love this new refrigerator. He thinks it is simply marvelous and has not yet complained or gripe about this refrigerator. That to me is success. I like the freezer because it has a shelf. Our old refrigerator didn't have one and frozen food would sometimes drop to the floor whenever you opened the freezer. I prefer simple things in life and I liked this refrigerator very much.
lots of room in both freezer and bottom
