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.

Comments about Whirlpool GB9FHDXWS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator In Stainless Steel:
I purchased the Whirlpool Gold bottom mount refrigerator and I couldn't be more pleased with the appliance so far. The adjustable tempered glass shelves are wonderful for customizing your food storage needs. I love having the freezer on the bottom, when you open the refrigerator door there is no leaning over to see what is in the refrigerator.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great fridge and features - but it LEAKS!
By Ottawa Fridge Owner
from Ottawa, Ontario
Our entire 101 unit condo was equipped with this fridge and over 70% of us are now experiencing the dreaded leaking of the unit. I now will be incurring thousands of dollars in hardwood repair as the fridge has leaked and damaged our hardwood. Otherwise - the fridge has worked fine.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
OK in the store, but trouble at home
from Chicago IL
In the 2 months I've had it, I haven't been happy with its performance, and again I'll need to call for repair.
Fits into small space and runs well!
from Ebensburg, PA
Our new refrigerator replaced the Whirlpool that was here when we purchased this house in 1994! It was probably not efficient and was noisy, but it fit into the space in our kitchen. Our house was built in the 1940s when appliances were smaller, so we are limited on the size refrigerator we could get. The noise wasn't a problem until we moved to a first floor bedroom and knew it was time to replace the old refrig. The one feature that we (surprisingly) all miss is the little cubby on the door for butter! The butter tends to get moved to the rear and can never be found. All three members of our household believe that this item warrants removing a star from the Features category. Everything else about this review is absolutely positive. We enjoy the bottom freezer, the quiet operation and the Energy Star efficiency of our new refrigerator.
Working out well
from Avalon nj
Bought this fridge for small cottage at the shore.It's quieter than we expected, nice surprise!We have limited space so it's still a small fridge but I really like the bottom freezer.The quality is good and we're happy with it.
bought it 08.12.2016 so far all is well.
Love the freezer on the bottom
By Cello echo
Great in every way, but what's that periodic buzz that lasts 4 seconds?
Perfect Size and plenty of room!
from Surrey BC
I love my new fridge! With movable shelving this fridge is a dream. Having a big party? Move the shelves around to have room for everything. Love that a 4 Litre of Milk or a large jug of juice fits on the door. Easy to clean and temperature is spot on for both the fridge and freezer! I also appreciate having the freezer on the bottom as I no longer have to bend down to get my fruits and veggies everyday. The stainless steel is a bonus!
It's worth the long wait!
from Warren, Ohio
We're loving our new purchase. Only had it a couple weeks but it's a big hit. It really holds more than it looks in freezer. So handy and very quiet. Haven't had bottom freezer in years, but this one is great. We were in a pinch with size but this one is perfect fit.
Love This Fridge
from Cleveland, Oh.
I've had this fridge now for over a month and I still love it! Don't believe the people that say it was loud, it doesn't. I think when people were referring to is when you first plug the refrigerator in. After it's initial cycle, it's very quiet. Nice lighting, very premium finish and it's very quiet. So don't hesitate. But this fridge!
