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.

Best Fridge Ever! Order it- No muss no fuss.

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Bottom Freezer Refrigerator In Stainless Steel:
I finally got a new Whirlpool fridge after living too long with the icky fridge that came with the old house I bought. I love this one door fridge with a bottom freezer- it couldn't have been designed better if I had designed it myself. By opening ONE door, where the food is at eye level, you can see everything in the fridge at a glance. Nothing is hidden, so nothing gets old enough to get moldy. If you can see it, you can eat it. The temps for the fridge and freezer stay right where they should be. The outside is slim and streamlined. It wasn't all that expensive either.Good Job on this one Whirlpool!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bright lights, Big little fridge
By Schgildukken Clan
from Bennington, VT
Delighted to have this fridge. Due to height space issues and the fact we prefer bottom freezers, we didn't have a lot to choose from, so we're very pleased how nice this fridge is for our needs. The only concern I see is that we've got a lot of frozen food for the holidays right now and the freezer space is a little on the tight side for that. Lucky we kept our old fridge in the basement!
19 cu. ft.Whirlpool Refrigerator
By Nancy K
from Elkhart, Indiana
Recently purchased this refrigerator and am so pleased. It is so quiet and I rarely hear it running. My fresh vegetables such as lettuce and spinach lasts and lasts. It is so nice to have everything at eye level too. The freezer is great for all my ice cream snacks for the grandkids and right at their level to reach. I am a retired grandma so keeping things on hands for my family is important to me. I am impressed with how things keep and have saved money already. Thanks Whirpool!
I love my Whirlpool Appliances
from Loveland Ohio
I bought my appliances about a month ago and I love them, they work great and look beautiful.
from eugene oregon
I was disappointed that the new refrigerator did not include ice cube trays and extra storage bins like my previous model (Whirlpool).
An amazingly efficent for its size.
We had to return a competitors top freezer refrigerator due to a noisy motor and warped sides. Selected the 30" wide bottom freezer from Whirlpool. Being old school we were not familiar with the draw type bottom freezer. Because of the size required for the kitchen; We had to special order it. Well worth the wait . Bought it and love it.
Love my new refrigerator!
from Calumet, MI
I am very happy with my first bottom freezer refrigerator. The delivery and set up men did a wonderful job even with a difficult set of stairs to get up.
from ste genevieve, mo
i just bought this, I was looking for a 21 cubic like I had, the lady at the store said it was a 22, however, it's a 18.7. It seems bigger than a 18.7. Door's bottom shelf holds 2 gallons & 2 liters! Yay!, I just arranged shelves to my needs & door shelves adjust too. Freezer has plenty of room, I put meat in ziplock bags which take up less room. Ice maker took 2 hours after we plugged it in to work cuz you have to wait for freezer temp to get right, then lotsa ice. You can hear when ice maker fills, but that's ok, it's not too loud. Over all, momma's a happy camper
