Too bad Whirlpool's web site is so cumbersome to register with. Maybe more people would review instead of just disgruntled (thus motivated) customers. I'm not disgruntled, I'm happy. This fridge replaces a reliable 22 year old top freezer "gold" Whirlpool. I'm glad to see the good parts of the design that are time tested are carried forward : door shelf design, inside shelf design, ice maker design. Yet, they are improved: shelves disassemble easier for cleaning, more see-thru plastic, crisper baffle design doesn't get in the way of cleaning. They make good use of the space. The box is quiet. The other sounds like from the ice maker or freon leveling are very infrequent. There is a low hum that can be noticed, but it isn't bad. You read about ice makers being problematic on some brands. I have high hopes here since it looks like the design is similar to my 22 year old one, which was solid. Some things to know: the doors are a "tough pull". The seals give you energy efficiency, but are a bit of a hassle. The leveling feet must be extended so that door opens easy. If you get stainless steel, know that the SIDES are black. This is not clear from the pictures. I would give quality 5 stars, but it came with a non-working freezer bulb. Everything else works great so far. Fingers crossed for another 22 years.

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:
I have had this refrigerator a few years now And am wishing I still had my trusty old yellow one. There is a check valve in the drain that very often gets plugged and when the refrigerator auto defrosts you get a nice puddle of water draining out onto the floor. There should be a p trap to replace the rubber check valve, it is available online, but not made by whirlpool. The owners manual also says to clean the coils every other month, they are under the refrigerator and are very difficult to access without tipping it on it's side.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Awesome refrigerator and Affordable too! Looks great in my kitchen.
small enough to fit into our space, yet we have plenty of room in both the freezer & refrigerator.

So happy we bought this. So much space inside. We thought we'd miss the water access on door but we don't. I also love the freezer on the bottom of the unit.

I have had my frig for over a week and I just love it. Everything I use everyday is easily accessible. Would never return to a top freezer model again
Good basic refridgerator

I bought this in black and it's my first time with a bottom freezer. I love the freezer door and the slide out tray. It's much easier than bending over the drawer for a slide out freezer. The fridge part has lots of door shelving, but you can't hang them so that you can get tall items in them. I could only use the bottom tray for tall items and I struggle to get even small items in the rest of the trays. The crispers are nice and there is a cheese drawer and butter drawer but nowhere to put eggs. Also the flat shelves, like the door shelves can only be spread apart so much. I have one shelf that I can put big tall items on and the rest can only handle short stuff. Plus, the unit is deep, so the small stuff gets lost way in the back and you can't see it. I think it's a great unit for the price and worth it for the bottom freezer, but it's not a good unit if you have a large family and need to store a lot of food. The space is not too functional.
Great refrigerator at an affordable price.

We were looking for a nice size unit for our condo and this was a good selection. It has a very functional shelving system with slide out shelves. We are very happy with this unit.
I love the bottom freezer.

I have only had this for 3 weeks but I love it and am glad I picked this one.
Looks good, does the job, flawed freezer.

I really like having the refrigerated section at eye level. I don't like the design of the freezer. We've lost two freezer-loads of food because packaging got caught in the wire baskets, imperceptibly preventing the drawer from fully closing. I'm shopping for a remote temperature sensor/alarm to prevent another loss. Limited freezer capacity and inability to store items in an upright position add to my buyer's remorse.

I got this whirlpool a month ago. I love my new whirlpool! My other one was a whirlpool also, it lasted 15 years. I'm looking forward to this one lasting as long. The lighting in side makes it so easy to find things. I really like the pull out freezer, never had one before. This makes it easier to find items.
