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.

Happy with my choice!
So far I love it!
Very happy with this fridge!
from Littleton, NH
Purchased 2 months ago. I love the clear view to the back, the bright lighting, and the ease of reach. Only drawbacks--freezer basket can be unwieldy if full, and I do wish this fridge had a door alarm!
exactly what I wanted/needed
from Chesterfield MI
This was exactly what I was looking for when I had to replace my old fridge.
from Grand Rapids, MI
Bought this a couple of months ago. Love the style. Love the frig on top. Everything is in eye view. no kneeling down to find things on shelves. Very handy freezer drawer. holds quite a bit of food. very quiet. never hear it running except for the ice maker which is very seldom. It pays to spend a little more.
WORTH THE WAIT!

I had to wait over two months to have this refrigerator delivered but it was worth the wait. I like the bottom freezer and all the space in the frig itself.
Design Needs Improvement
from San Francisco, CA
Great to have a fridge on top, but we were disappointed that the sides are not stainless, and the interior design needs improvement. The separate door shelves waste potential storage space; the drawers don't open wide enough to get to the back of them; the shelves leave gaps in the back that reduce useful space, and the shelf brackets also waste potential space. The door swings too loosely. The unit is too noisy. The castors scratched our hardwood floors.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This refrigerator came in our new Motorhome
Has more room in it and it is a nice unit over all. Just what we needed.
from Clarkesville, GA
For the price, this is one of the best models you will find. We got this to replace a bottom *drawer* refrigerator. Let me take this opportunity to say DO NOT BUY A BOTTOM DRAWER FRIDGE. However, we really like the bottom freezer models so we went with this one because this model has a bottom *door* with a drawer that pulls out. The seals are great and with no weight on the door, we expect them to stay that way.
Just my opinion
Works ok, but is cheaply made. No egg holder, no extra tray in freezer, shelves cannot be installed side by side, no door on any of the door compartments,no water filter for ice maker. I needed and wanted a white frig over freezer and this was my only choice at the appliance store. I had several all years ago purchased a Whirlpool washer and drier and was unhappy enough to the point that I refused to keep them.
