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:
My previous refrigerator was a top freezer model and, even though it still worked nicely, having to bend down to reach into the rear of the bottom shelf was becoming a difficult task. This refrigerator has everything at eye-level. Even the bottom freezer compartment is easy to access since the compartments roll out to reach into. And, unlike my former model, the icemaker is super quiet. I love the space that this refrigerator offers even on the huge door. I highly recommend this model.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Our Awesome New Refrigerator/Freezer!!
from Lansdale, PA.
Excellent refrigerator. We just love it!!! The drawers for the freezer are awesome. No more trying to get one thing out and half of the freezer contents fall on the floor. The shelves are wonderful in the fridge part and you can find everything very easily. Just love it!!
By Sore Knees
Have had for 3 weeks and very pleased so far. The bottom freezer is great, no more getting on my knees for items in the very back of the bottom shelf. The fridge portion is a little smaller with this set- up but my space in the kitchen to put it in is very limited. It is a little noisier than my prior but soon it is not noticed.
from Alburtis, Pa.
Features I like are : bright inside refrigerator & freezer for good viability, digital temperature control and plenty of storage options. Features I do not like are : the texture is only on the sides where you can't see it which leaves fingerprints where you can see them and the ice maker makes a lot of noise.
from Belmont, CA
I replaced an old Kenmore that was made by Whirlpool and assumed that in this price range the sound levels would be similar. I was wrong. This thing makes all sorts of annoying noises, and it's made worse by the fact that the compressor is loud. It was also shipped with a part missing, which I'm trying to replace.
A gem of a product
from Brick NJ
Have this for a month now and wonder how we ever did without it. It is so user friendly. The LED LIGHTING, the ease of accessing food, the adjustable shelving all play a role in making this a gem of a product. The lower door freezer is adequate for our needs and easy to access. Thanks Whirlpool for a great product!
Easy to use

from Toronto Canada
Had this fridge for 2 weeks now. Absolutely love it. Stainless steel finish looks great, size it perfect and I really like how the freezer door opens like a door Vs the drawer freezer. So far so good.
