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.

Great product Large capacity to fit in a limited space good features at a reasonable price.
LONG TERM USE
Piece of junk. 3 years old and I had to replace the drain kit for over 100.00, but hey...it had to be fixed. 3 weeks later, the computer board went, almost 300.00 to fix that! So now I have half the cost of what I paid. Save your money!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
TWO BREAKDOWNS IN 19 MONTHS
from GREEN COVE SPRINGS, FLORIDA
QUIT COOLING AT 15 MONTHS. BAD RUN CAPACITOR. LOST $75 WORTH OF FISH I HAD CAUGHT. ICE MAKER QUIT AT 19 MONTHS. CONSUMERS BE ADVISED, COMPRESSOR AND SEALED SYSTEM HAVE ONLY A ONE YEAR WARRANTY! USED TO BE FIVE YEARS. SAME INTERNALS AS "PREMIUM BRANDS" SUCH AS KITCHENAID. KITCHENAID HAS 10 YEAR WARRANTY ON S.S.. HOWEVER, YOU HAVE TO PAY OUT THE NOSE FOR IT!! THE AMERICAN CONSUMER HAS FEW OPTIONS WHEN BUYING AND AMERICAN MADE REFRIGERATOR!!

So happy with my new Whirlpool bottom-freezer refrigerator. I had a W.P. top-freezer model which was still in good working order. But getting down to reach the back of the bottom shelf in the fridge was becoming difficult so I replaced it with this new model. It's perfect for my needs. This size fits beautifully in the limited space I have and really holds a great deal of food. The slide-out freezer shelves are very easy to load and access. The ice-maker is quiet. In all, I love my new Whirlpool and would recommend it to everyone.
Ice maker did not work and it took me 2 weeks to get a new one.

Nice easy to clean in and out woks great ang quite
A big doorstop
Lasted a scant 2-1/2 years. Unbelievable. Fridge is a balmy 60 degrees. Repairs will cost $533.00. I'd have to be pretty stupid to replace the circuit board and drain tube with Whirlpool parts that will probably fail again. Never in a million years did I think I would end up with a non-working refrigerator after such a short time. Thanks Whirlpool.
