This was the only french door refrigerator that was not too tall and fit in a standard refrigerator space that we could find. Overall we like the french door design because visibility is improved in the refrigerator portion. I wish the freezer drawer divider was adjustable. It is a fixed configuration that will not accommodate wide items in the freezer. The other thing I really hate is the shelves are full width and very difficult to remove to clean. The shelves are so tight they hardly fit through the fully open doors and only with a great deal of effort. The drop shelf is virtually useless as it is the only interior space for tall items (ie gallon of milk/beverage pitcher). The drop is basically is a waste of space for the items trying to fit underneath the partial shelf. I really wish the shelving was more adjustable for tall items. It is really hard to fit everything in that I easily used to fit in my old standard top freezer model that had less cubit square space than this new one.

I bought this refrigerator to fit in a small area of the kitchen. After delivery, I noticed that the LED panel and lights were not working. I had to have someone service the refrigerator and they found that the factory had failed to connect the power cabling running to the panels and lights. No big deal. Not a week later and after going on a trip for two days, I came back to discover that the refrigerator was no longer cooling and the freezer was completely defrosted. I had to pitch all of my food. Once again, I had to call to get the refrigerator serviced. There was now a leak on the evaporator and the refrigerant had spilled into the unit. A week later, a technician came out to fix the leak. Two days after the repair, the same thing happened again. There was another leak on the evaporator. Whirlpool refused to give a refund for the refrigerator or send out a new unit unless it was deemed "unrepairable". Furthermore, there was no compensation for all of the food I had lost during this time period. I had to complain enough to get an extended warranty for 6 months. This part of the refrigerator is what actually cools the air and it was leaking within a month of purchase. It was finally serviced again and seems to be working now.TL;DR - Whirlpool's quality is god awful and their customer service even worse. I'm sure this refrigerator will spring another leak within 6 months.

from Holland mi.
Happy with it,but we replaced an older kenmore frig. that seemed to have more space, and the drower and shelf layout doesn't seem to fit a lot.
from Manitoba Canada
I had a hard time getting used to this new fridge, but now I love it. It's convenient and easier to store and retrieve foods in both the top fridge and bottom freezer. Only thing is I wish I was taller to reach the top shelf easier. I love the ice maker that comes with the fridge. Also, I am glad a water dispenser did not come with the fridge because it would take up food storage space and it is not a necessary item. I also like the style and look of the door handles; they're sleek, modern, and smooth. These one piece handles are easy to keep clean because there are no grooves to collect dirt.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So far so good, but would rather have a single door version that fit in the same space. Double doors are awkward
The ice maker is wonderful and we love the bottom freezer

We love the ice maker and the bottom freezer. We removed one shelf to make more space for taller items. It works well.
Great size frig
from Carlisle PA
I bought this refrigerator about a month ago, and I love it. It's very quiet compared to my old one. It fits just right in the space in my kitchen, which is narrow, and I bought it specifically for that reason, it's only 30 inches wide. I have more space in it, compared to my old side by side. So far so good!
The worst purchase of my life
I only gave it one star because I had to. I bought this on 5/2/2014. We have had multiple service calls on this refrigerator. It is currently working, but I wouldn't be surprised if that changed soon. The latest problem isn't covered at all, because it is out of factory warranty and the extended warranty is only for mechanical issues. The right side door has turned yellow along the edge, and this morning I saw a speck on it and flicked it with my fingernail.The paint came off. The paint is really soft. I can't wait until the extended warranty is expired. I will replace this piece of junk. I have purchased my last Whirlpool appliance.
Large pull out drawer freezer
By Karen S.
Cools&freezes great. An alarm "dings" if door doesn't close or stays open too long (I.e. kids) Freezer has ample ice bin&slide over top drawer for 2 areas. Down side: I'm short&can't reach into top shelf. Needs slideout. Only 3 ledges choice for shelves. A 16 oz. bottle won't fit except for fold-in shelf area
from Downey, Ca
Love the bottom freezer.Shelving is very versatile.Great improvement over the old one.
