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.

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!
Big space inside, fits in my condo kitchen!
Love this fridge. Lots of space inside, huge freezer. Love that it's so easy to change shelves and space as needed
from St. Paul, MN
So happy that this refrigerator fits in the opening we have.
I bought this almost 1 month ago and I love it
easier access to refrigerator
from West Hempstead NY
Purchasing a top ref and bottom freezer gives easy access to refrigerator compartment.Adjustable glass shelves allows more space for grocery items..LED lighting brightens the interior overview..
Love single door!
from Fruitland Park, FL
I love the single door on the top. I once had the French doors but it seemed like I always had to open both doors to put anything away or get anything out. So in my next house I decided to get a single door on top. I lOVE IT!

We've had this new fridge nearly a month now and we're very pleased. It's the perfect size for us and the various storage components are conveniently shaped and sized.
