We really like this refrigerator, but we did have one issue with the bottom freezer drawer on the bottom. You can't "push" it to close, you have to let go of it before it closes so that the seal is actually closed. We weren't doing that and we had frost build up inside the freezer. Other than that we love the features and the room it has inside.

We did our due diligence in regards to shopping for a reputable refrigerator. The unit was delivered and installed .In less than 24 hours we had problems with the upper part ( french door model) staying cool and maintaining a consistent temperature. We also found that when following the directions for the water dispenser that we had water leaking inside the unit. We also "love" the feature of when you press the water handle in the door it keeps dispensing water for roughly 5 seconds after you release the handle.MY BIGGEST CONCERN IS GOING TO BE HOW BOTH THE RETAILER WE PURCHASED THIS UNIT FROM AND WHIRLPOOL HANDLE THIS PROBLEM.

Replaced ice maker 3x in two years
By W&S Bridges

Comments about Whirlpool Gold GI6FARX Stainless Steel French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:
I have always heard that Whirlpool was a reputable brand, but I am very disappointed in this refrigerator. The ice maker does not work properly. It either gives you no ice or dumps out so much that it gets all over the floor. More times than not, it gives you no ice at all. Also, we had a leak from the bottom which put puddles in our kitchen. We thought we were getting a great product being that it was close to $2,000 at the time of purchase, but the ice maker issues have convinced me otherwise.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Nice looking unit. However, ice maker already broke
By MD from New Jersey
I bought this based more on looks than reviews. I was told by several people that most of the newer refrigerators have horrible ice makers. Should've listened.

I love the space and layout of this refrigerator. It has worked very well for us (we've had it for 3 1/2 years now). The only issue we've had, which is an issue many whirlpool/maytag refrigerators have had, is that water started dripping into the freezer. I've had to defrost it a few times but found out that they are offering a repair kit at no charge. If you contact them about it within the first year, they will pay for the service charge too. If you're like me and have had the refrigerator for a while, it's best to have them ship the replacement kit to you and install it yourself. They have instructions that come with it and I've seen videos online about how to do it, so I'm hoping it will be a fairly easy fix. Other than that, I've loved it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from Oregon OH
Purchased our fridge just over a year ago and the ice maker only works on occasion, it leaks water out of the bottom of the fridge, there is an inch of ice in the bottom of the freezer and the drawers are covered in snowy looking ice. This seems to be a problem with this fridge. Why isn't there a recall? Why do we have to pay to fix this? We didn't install it the store that we purchased it from installed it.
from Dayton, Ohio
I bought this refrigerator in 2012 and I have had a repair man out twice, I had to fix the defrost drain and now I need a new ice maker. I have always bought American made products. This is an American made piece of junk!

Leaks water from bottom
from Miamisburg, OH
After about 2 years of use (only 1yr warranty), the refrigerator began leaking significant amounts of water daily. This is not due to a faulty installation of the ice maker hose. It is a known problem with this model. Also, the ice maker is frustrating. Often times no ice will come out and then all the sudden, tons of ice comes pouring out. I rarely end up with the proper amount of ice. I usually dump ice out of my glass. Further, no matter how close I place my glass, ice almost always spits out to the side and onto my cherry hardwood floors! UGHHH!
from Glen arm, MD
This fridge is huge. Everything is perfect. The only dislike is the ice dispenser is not the greatest. It crushes ice even when trying to get whole ice. Other than that it's great.
Lovin' the French doors
from Surprise, AZ
I bought a house that had this installed. So cool and roomy. And the ice dispenser is great -- even if you want to pull out ice for say a cooler, it's really a lot easier than I've ever seen before. Love the deli drawer!
Bad Ice Maker
from Pittsburgh, PA
I bought this just over a year ago and the ice maker has already failed. Unfortunately it only comes with a one year warranty, so now we'll have to pay for repairs. Another issue is that the freezer door is tricky to close. It's been accidentally left ajar many times.
from Welch, Ok
Love my new fridge!!!
