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:
Love the bottom freeze,it puts the food at eye level for the first time. Since we are both in our seventies it makes finding things much easier. The stainless steel finish is very attractive and easy to care for with a mild soap and soft cloth.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Check the warranty
from Vancouver, WA
Owned for just over 2 years and the compressor went out. The warranty on this refrigerator/bottom freezer is 1 year only. No 2nd through 5th year warranty on sealed components like most others have. Whirlpool was unwilling to stand behind their product but were more than willing to stand behind their (1 year) warranty. The repair is over 2/3 the cost of the original unit. Otherwise, loved this unit as a whole.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

i love the pull out freezer on the bottom. I don't have to stand on my head to see what is in the freezer.
Whirlpool delivered just in time!
By Careful Carol
from McFarland, WI
This is the first time we have had a refrigerator with a bottom freezer so was not sure what to expect. We found it works perfect for us and are very happy with the layout and performance of this refrigerator. The items in the freezer are so much easier to find. Our Whirlpool was delivered 3 weeks ago and just in time as our other refrigerator was collecting water in the bottom. Our local dealer worked with us and delivery quick and easy. We are very pleased with the whole transaction and love the refrigerator.
MY NEW WHIRLPOOL REEFER
from Grand Forks, North Dakota
I changed from a top freezer to the new WHIRLPOOL bottom freezer and couldn't be more happy with it.

I wanted to buy this particular appliance several years ago but the price was to high. Now I have it I wish I would paid the extra money. The idea of the frig. on top and bottom freezer is great for people my age. I don't have to stoop down to get food out of the frig. Everything is at eye level.
Freezer leaks due to ice build up
Defect with the freezer. Other parts are fine.

I purchased this refrigerator last month and I couldn't be happier with its performance.
from San Antonio, Texas
This refrigerator replaced a similar unit in my motorhome. The prior unit had three issues. 1- the rubber snubber to drain defrost water was too tight (water backed into the freezer). 2- Ice-maker failed. Replacement did not work at first, then started working. 3- Loss of coolant (frozen food thawed). This occurred during an extended trip to Alaska. The replacement refrigerator has worked well to date.
Looks, ease to where we put it in a shell.

We needed to replace our old one and it too was a Whirlpool.
