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.

I looked at the French door models, but decided they weren't for me. The simplicity of this fridge is wonderful. Loads of space, shelves that I can arrange in many different ways, large crisper drawers. And the freezer with Ice machine inside is great for me. The bottom freezer makes so much sense to me over the top freezer or even side by side. Tons of room, easy access to things. I love it.
Great frig for the price

Bought this refrigerator after reading many reviews on quality. I am very pleased with it. Perfect fit for our newly renovated kitchen.
Whirlpool 22cuft bottom freezer
from Lincoln, NE, United States
My wife likes the bottom freezer a lot. She is shorter and does not ne a step stool to see what is in the top of the freezer. Lots of glass shelves to see stuff as well.
Nice design, noisy compressor
from Texas, United States
Great features, lots of room. The noise level of the fan and compressor are really noticeable. Needs improvement on the noise level. If you can get past that noise, it's great.

I bought this refrigerator 2 years ago. Recently it has been leaking water from the freezer. There is a significant amount of ice build up in the freezer compartment. The manual doesn't even mention this problem. I have had many other refrigerators and never had any problems with them. It is a very disappointing purchase.
Average refrigerator but not amazing
from Murrieta, CA, United States
We purchased this unit in May 2013 and up until a month ago it was problem free. Apparently there is a common defrost drain trap issue with these bottom freezer refrigerators, causing it to not drain properly during the defrost cycle. Luckily Whirlpool is aware of this issue and repaired it even though it was out of warranty. Other than this issue the refrigerator has worked flawlessly and offers ample fresh food space. The ice maker does a pretty decent job of making ice, but is a bit noisy. The adjustable shelves make this refrigerator a swiss army, allowing you to adapt the storage space to your fresh food needs. Now for the cons, which aren't much but make this refrigerator just average. The stainless scratches and stains really easy. Don't put a magnet or let your kids with messy hands touch the stainless parts is all I have to say. My other issue is the freezer space is some what limited, at least for a family of 5. Overall we are happy with this refrigerator, but after seeing our neighbors Samsung refrigerator I would probably compare this to a similar Samsung model first.
easy to use

We bought this as a replacement for an old unit. So far we're thrilled
Roomy with easy to adjust shelves
from Woodbridge, Vaughan, ON, Canada
Bottom freezer is a definite bonus as well as the self making ice. Storage capacity is huge!!! Love that. The ice tray can be a little noisy, so I just turn it off when the tray is full. The shelves are easy to adjust to accommodate your needs.

I bought this fridge about a month ago, and I can't believe how happy I am with it. I love the freezer being on the bottom instead of the top, and the fridge part has so much room. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.
