GB2FHDSS - Whirlpool Gold GB2FHDXWS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator In Stainless Steel

The Whirlpool GB2FHD bottom freezer refrigerator is one of the most energy efficient bottom mount freezers on the market. Inside the fridge offers a ton of room for all of your favorite food and rink items. With the full-width glass shelves, they provide easy visibility and a ton of space. A factory installed ice maker provides you fresh ice with the press of a button. Keep your fridge at the optimal temperature and climate with humidity control.

The GB2FHD has intuitive controls making sure it is working at the optimum level. The adaptive defrost system, or ADS, monitors the compressor and evaporator. Depending on how often the fridge is open and closed, the ADS models will have fewer defrosts and will save energy and preserve your food. You can easily adjust your temperature manually with the digital controls on the inside of the unit.

What a wonderful surprise! We love this fridge!

If you want the bottom line: Buy this fridge! It's beautifully engineered, fits in a small space, is quiet, energy efficient, and surprisingly spacious! We've owned this fridge for a month now and felt this was enough time/usage for a genuine review.

The last week of 2011 our 17 year old side-by-side refrigerator just ran out of gas. Let's just say my wife and I were NOT in the market for a new fridge. So I reluctantly scrambled to look online to educate myself on prices, features, etc. The only features my wife and I decided were top priorities were 1- a bottom drawer freezer and 2- no external water/ice. We also wanted as little "high tech" stuff as possible as we've heard/read many stories of technology breaking easily and being very expensive to repair/replace. We were also constrained to a relatively small width due to existing counter top space.

We began our search at Lowe's on a Saturday morning. By narrowing our choices to the bottom drawer freezer, this narrowed our selection to essentially about 4 refrigerators. One last minute decision was French Doors vs. Single Door on top. The French Doors look beautiful; however, we personally found the NOISE every time you open and close the door -because of the necessary middle pivoting hinge - was simply too much for us.

This essentially got us to this Whirlpool model. The first thing we loved was the MODULAR SPLIT SHELVES in the top fridge area. I can testify that this is a GAME CHANGER. The ability to customize the split shelves is a fantastic design. Yet if you need to keep a sheet cake or large casserole in the fridge, you can quickly level both sides and have the space you need.

Having the gallon jug of milk kept in the door and not gobbling up shelf space is also a super design.

The top door closes VERY tightly - I guess this is part of the energy efficiency. If you simply "pull" on the handle, it will literally pull the entire unit toward you - on wheels. Instead, I've found that a simple "tug" on the door handle will break the seal and open the door. No big deal but worth mentioning.

The freezer is very spacious and has a smaller top half sliding drawer to keep things organized. Ice maker/tub inside on the top left. What more do we need?

Every fridge will have some noise when it's running. This one is relatively quiet. You'll hear the fan running from time to time but that's about it. Noise is no issue here.

One final comment about energy efficiency. A while back I bought a little gadge called a "Kill-A-Watt" that measures how much energy an appliance uses. My old fridge was costing me about $175/year to run. Ouch. This fridge is rated to cost me about $45/year. That's over $10 A MONTH in genuine savings!

After a month, we're still blown away by how spacious this fridge is! Never a side-by-side again. Our is black and the exterior cleans easily. If you're looking for a beautiful, functional, bottom drawer freezer with no extras to break on you, this is your fridge! Thanks Whirlpool for a well designed refrigerator.

My family has always purchased Whirlpool products due to their quality and dependability but our last purchase was very disappointing. Disappointing due to the noise that this refrigator makes plus not being able to keep the front of the door looking clean. I went to the website to listen to the noise levels before purchasing and nothing was on this site warned me about the freon making such a noise, the best way for me to discribe the noise is a clucking chicken. I was told it only last for a few seconds but it is unpleasant to hear this noise throughout the day and night, needless to say when company is over it is very embarrsing. I love the style and the space that is refrigator has but would not recommend due to the noise that occurs when the freon is leveling out plus not being able to keep the door looking clean.

Stainless not stain free

By 

from Noneya

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Bottom Freezer Refrigerator In Stainless Steel:

Although I would highly recommend the bottom freezer design, this refrigerator is far too noisy ( with loud motor humming and popping sounds ) and impossible to keep the stainless steel clean. Any drip or mark is impossible to get off and leaves a color variation.

Angry customer will never buy whirlpool again

By 

from NC

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Bottom Freezer Refrigerator In Stainless Steel:

I have all things whirlpool....washer, dryer, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and oven. Within my warranty period, we discovered that the freezer was not sealing. This of course leads to losing everything because it also ruins the food in the refrigerator when the freezer isn't working. So after having this issue repaired TWICE to no avail we have to constantly slam the drawer over and over until the track resets and forms a seal every single time we open the freezer. I have always bought whirlpool but will never do it again. This unit should have been replaced considering I was still under warranty and the problem was never resolved. Never ever ever ever again.

Disappointed in Whirlpool

By 

from Fairborn, Ohio

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Bottom Freezer Refrigerator In Stainless Steel:

I am sure whirlpool products on a whole are fine products. However, this particular item clearly had design and component issues. The first showed up in about a year from purchase and appears to be a common parts issue. Ice would form on the bottom of the freezer floor and then melt and run out onto the floor. After some research, it was obvious that many have had this problem. The issue was a rubber duckbill that allows water to drain into the evaporator pan. After some time, the bill would stick together and not allow water to drain and water would drain out onto the bottom of the freezer section and freeze. during the defrost cycle, the ice would melt and if left to build up would drain on the kitchen floor. $35 replacement part. However, to have someone come in an service it would have been several hundred. (note: if you do replace the part, COMPLETELY defrost the refrig, otherwise, the drain hole could still be clogged and still not let it drain properly). Once I replaced the part everything seemed to work fine. The second issue came a few months later. The bottom freezer would get extremely cold, frozen over and the upper refrig started to get warm. Some more research provided several possible scenarios and I tried the easiest first. This was simply to defrost the whole refrig again. the thought that a vent had frozen in place and was not allowing cold air to get to the top part. This appeared to work fine, but after a few months, it did it again. Thereafter, it just seems to do it at random times. I have theorized that for some reason the thermostat for the upper section causes the unit to think that it needs cooled. Possibly, if there is a lot of activity keeping the door open a lot. This cause the unit to run longer trying to cool. The bottom freezer does not defrost often enough and it freezes over cause the air vent flap to stick which then keeps the cool air from getting to the upper section. Anyway my current solution is to keep watching the freezer section to see if the coils are freezing over. This may be a few weeks to a few months, but it will keep doing it. This is a real pain since I have to unload everything and defrost the entire unit. It is expected that soon I will miss it and have lost a bunch of food. The other option is to have someone come into to service it. This will obviously amount to 100s of dollars. Considering what it may have cost me to repair it the first time if I did not do it myself and what it would cost me now (that is if it is actually fixed), it is just not worth the money. I believe that this was a very poorly designed item and did not have sufficient testing before product delivery. We are in the market for a new refrigerator. I realize that this may be one Whirlpool item out of many that may be good, but my wife no longer wants to look at Whirlpool for appliances. It simply left a bad taste in her mouth. Whirlpool has lost a repeat customer.

Ordinary. But That's What I wanted

By 

from Atlanta

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Bottom Freezer Refrigerator In Stainless Steel:

I had trouble actually SEEING this in a retail shop, as several different ones listed it as available but described it as "special order." The wait was longer than expected. The size and configuration met my needs, and it works well, with good lighting and shelf flexibility. The handle was loose within a week, but I believe that is a result of the retailer reconfiguring its hinge side. Be aware that "stainless" applies only to front; the sides are nondescript blah. Overall, no complaints. Not outstanding in any way, but a good size.

Fridge Runs All the Time

By 

from Toronto

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Bottom Freezer Refrigerator In Stainless Steel:

Bought this fridge about 8 months ago and it runs all the time- cycles about 20 minutes on and ten minutes off- this during the day when the door hasn't been opened for hours. I've written down the times and it runs for a little over 50% of the time. This can't be efficient
