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.

Ideal For Our Kitchen
from Guilford, CT
This fridge is nothing short of ideal. It's design encompasses an attention to both the importance of aesthetics and function. It has enough storage for all your essentials and more, but without being too bulky and large. The easy to arrange shelves can be moved around as needed, giving you the freedom to carefully refrigerate your food and set it up according to your own needs. The freezer has two storage levels, which allows for a convenient mode of access and a more spacious freezer than you might find in other similar refrigerators. The handles for both the fridge and freezer don't leave any marks, which is a huge bonus for those of us that hate the fingerprints and other surface marks that can often be a downside to stainless steel appliances. In essence, it is an elegant addition to any kitchen, and it's built for convenience, easy organization and a stylish, personalized experience. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to update their kitchen with a little style. It's a wonderful product at an even more wonderful price.

We are so happy with our new refrigerator. Having all the daily use items at eye level is great for our older backs. Both the refrigerator and freezer are very roomy and no more head bumps.

Great fridge ugly plugs on the stainless door
By Kitchen Remodel
from Bellevue, WA
Love the fridge and the space in the bottom freezer is great. With that said, I had to have the door handles switched, and the plugs used are plastic and not stainless. They are an eye sore when you look at the beautiful door. This is not really visible when you view this product online and I was quite disappointed. Maybe this does not show as well on non-stainless models.

Nice small refrigerator
By Wendy A
from Fennville, MI
I'm happy with this purchase. It's quite and feels solid. I like that it's energy star as well. I have a small space for a refrigerator and Whirlpool is one of the few that will make a bottom freezer small enough to fit this space. If I have one nit, I don't appreciate the look of the two screws on the right side of the fridge (opposite the handle). They are not very attractive.
