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.

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Bottom Freezer Refrigerator In Stainless Steel:
We purchased this refrigerator a month ago. It has been extremely noisy from day one. If a repairperson cannot fix the problem(s), we are going to exchange it for another brand. Otherwise, it is a very nice refrigerator.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was a little disappointed. The refrigerator that I wanted was too tall for the space I had. On this one the front hinge is so high that my cupboard door scrapes on it before the cupboard is open all of the way.
Better Than Expected

I have had this in use now for one week and am very pleased. All areas of the frig are easily accessible, the lighting is wonderful and changing the shelf arrangement is easy when the need arises.The unit is easy to clean and all areas are visible when the door is open thanks to the glass shelves and clear bins.Both the frig and freezer cooled quickly and have maintained even temperatures.Crisp, clean,neat exterior
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Very quite, hit all the correct temps within 6 hours of plugging in.

The angled freezer drawer restricts what type of food items I can put in.
Great use of space.

My spouse and I both suffer from bad backs. This refrigerator, with the freeze in the lower position, has been helpful to both of us in that we can easily visualize what is stored. It has helped to reduce back strain associated with going through the entire freezer to find what has been placed in the freezer. I highly recommend this Whirlpool refrigerator.

Bought this in February and am very happy that I did. The refrigerator is a perfect fit to our needs.
from Chestnut Ridge, New York
After a couple of months it has frozen food in the refrigerator compartment at least three time. This is with the setting at number two. It is a disappointment.

Was restricted on height when looking to replace my GE French door refrigerator. This one is perfect for my space. Took some time to get used to it being smaller, but love the bottom freezer. Runs a lot quieter than my old one.
