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 waited until I owned my refrigerator for at least a month so I could compare it to the other reviews I used to make my purchase. I've always owned Whirlpool so I was somewhat familiar.It's got a nice, modern, clean look. Runs very quietly & efficiently. Overall capacity is okay for my use which is at a weekend lake house. I wouldn't buy it for a home I live in daily. Here's why... 1) Plastic draws are cheap and fall off their tracks; 2) There is no dairy compartment on door for small items like an open butter dish; 3) Since the capacity to handle tall items is limited on the main shelf (nice retractable shelf for those once and awhile special items), the door capacity is terrible. I had to totally eliminate one door shelf on the right in order to put our milk and juice containers there (suggestion to manufacturer- make the door shelve tilt down for loading purposes or make the walls lower, or even cut-outs); the icemaker makes a very small amount of ice. The shut off switch only allows a small capacity...not good for a dinner party of 8 people or more. Not a good use of space in the freezer considering the size of the ice tray that is in there. It should at least fill up to the top. You will run out of ice quickly; factory setting for refrigerator temperature is too warm. Dairy products went bad after a few days; Left door flap swings to an open position preventing the door from being closed unless you manually turn it back. Then it will work while the right door is closed. Expect to have to open the right door in order to close the left door (but only if the flap is not in the right position).Now, with all of this being said, compare to others makes and models in this size, our Whirlpool is superior to the others hands down! What I think might be poorly designed or cheap on my refrig is worse on the other brands we compared it to. If it holds up for a long while like most other Whirlpool products then I will get my value out of it.

Perfect fit for small space. Really like the freezer on the bottom, very convenient. Plenty of refrigerator space, but wish there was more space for tall items. Pleased with purchase

Mostly good, but far from our dream fridge
from Oak Harbor, OH
First, I wish that I could give this fridge a 3.5, but I chose to round up because its mostly good. Do keep in mind that this review is being written by a space efficiency junkie, so my feedback has a lot to do with access and organization. I've been told that others are not so picky about this kind of thing.We have never had a french door refrigerator before and are not sure we'd do it again. We love the freezer at the bottom, but it seems the double doors waste valuable storage space. This is more important to us because we had to buy a 30" unit, which is already pretty small.But when the door is cut in half, we loose the storage that would have been in the middle of each shelf. Somehow it seems the shorter shelves have a lot more small wastes spaces than longer shelves do. The good news is that things are easier to reach and find with everything up so high. Some complained about the cheap plastic. I don't think it seems super strong, but it works just fine. We like that the either door can be opened or closed without opening the other. We have also had our butts saved a couple times because of the alarm. Cool feature (pun intended).If you store a lot of tall items in your fridge, AND a lot of condiments, this may not be the unit for you. Having everything up high means there is less room for shelves. We have found its not an efficient use of space to store our tall items (milk, juice, etc.) on the door because you can only fit one carton per shelf. Therefore, we had to make room on the top shelf, which meant that the other two shelves are pretty short. it works for our world, but everyone keeps different things in their refrigerator. The fold up shelf can be useful for storing taller items if needed. All that said, it is nice to not have a huge door to open and we would not trade the freezer at the bottom for anything.Let me talk about the freezer because a lot of people complained about it in other reviews. I have no idea what they were talking about unless they were trying to store 2'x2' boxes. We had a side-by-side freezer that was pretty close to packed when this fridge arrived. Every item fit into this space and it was way easier to organize. Pulling it out and being able to find things easily is one of the best parts of this appliance. In full disclosure, we did have a problem with leaking shortly after we got the fridge. For some reason ice had consolidated and it was melting and leaking. We called for warranty repair and it was fixed and no further problems (its been four months). One other thing worth noting - the ice maker doesn't make much ice. We tried adjusting the bar for it to make more and that helps a bit, but if we have company we have to remember to store some ice in advance or purchase some.That's all I can think of to share about the Whirlpool. So far so good, and our biggest complaint is that we need more room, but we don't have the space for a bigger fridge, so we can't blame the unit.
I really love this refrigerator
from DuBois, Pa.
This refrigerator fits our kitchen perfectly. We are among the many people out there who don't have an enormous kitchen area to put a refrigerator. It runs very quietly except for the occasional sound of falling ice into the bin. There is plenty of room in both the refrigerator and the freezer. We got the black one and it looks great, I was concerned that the shinny finish would be a problem with smudges and the like, but so far it is much easier to keep clean than the stainless steel we had before. An added bonus is that my reflection on the door makes me look a lot thinner! (ha ha) The air filter for the main compartment of the refrigerator that comes with it is fantastic. I had boiled eggs in potato salad in there for a few days and you could not smell a thing! I must say I was impressed.

It serves the purpose
from Rochester, ny
we had height constraints so didn't have a lot of choices in a black French door. Could have handled one w more width. Would have preferred a non shiny door that didn't show prints as easily like the sides. Split shelving would be helpful - had to remove one of the shelves to make it work for us. Not perfect, but we'll make it work.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I would definitely buy this product again

from westminster co
Works wonderful for one person...plenty of room. Freezer storage is more than sufficient.
from Xenia, Ohio
How delightful to find a refrigerator that fit my space in our 40 year old home! I thought it would be difficult to find something that fit and matched my other appliances! It's my favorite refrigerator of all our 56 years of marriage. The French doors are so convenient and the variety of shelves and drawers is exceptional. I'm also delighted with the bottom refrigerator. Thanks Whirlpool for this refrigerator!

The space I had for a refrigerator was limited. This one fit perfectly! I only wish that there were more options for where to put milk and other tall items.
Smaller but has great features.
from Forestport, NY
We have a small home and this frig fit right into place. It offers the shelves and bins inside that the larger refrigerators have. This frig has been a joy to use!
