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.

I love the bottom pull out freezer. It's easy to find everything in it. And in the refrigerator everything is at eye level.

Like the freezer on bottom and also the drawers on the door which you can space the way you like.
Nice and cool
Had this refrigerator / freezer for a few weeks now and it is working well. Keeps everything nice and cold.
Died at 2 years old!
By Crying Over Spilled Milk
from Blacksburg, VA
We bought this refrigerator a little over 2 years ago, and it died suddenly over the weekend. 1000 oz of irreplaceable frozen breast milk gone! We were happy with this refrigerator before its sudden death. We are still trying to figure out what happened. If we figure it out, I will update this review. Since it is outside the 1-year warranty, any repairs are on us. Very disappointing for a 2-year-old appliance.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love my Utilitarian Fridge
from Duvall, WA
I love this refrigerator. It's simple. No bells and whistles, but that's what I like about it. I love having the freezer on the bottom, as I use the fridge much more....plus, it's great for my chronic low-back pain. It looks great and doesn't take up too much space. This is a great refrigerator and I would purchase it again.
Love My Whirlpool!

I am so happy with my Whirlpool Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator with Accu-Chill System. I am a senior citizen and had to get on the floor to clean my previous refrigerator properly. Now I can clean while standing up and the no-spill glass shelves are amazing. My new refrigerator-freezer is making life very easy for me.

I only have the refrigerator for 1 week. Wish it had a covered compartment on the door for butter.
