I searched for months to find the perfect refrigerator. This is it! I read all the reviews on this site and took the chance that I could deal with any negatives and so glad I did. I have owned the black ice french door refrigerator for a month. I previously owned a side by side which did not hold enough food for a family of 6. I can now purchase a weeks worth of food with just one visit to the grocery. I just threw a party for 16 people and was able to fit ALL the food including a vegetable and fruit tray the day before. Saved me so much time the day of the party to not have to prepare those items last minute. The only complaint I could have is that a random piece of ice occasionally just falls out onto the floor. This happens once every few days and it's only one piece of ice. Easy solution...just pick it up and toss it. The look of this fridge is sleek and stylish. Wipes clean easily and is so shiny. The interior lights are great and plenty of drawer and door storage. I love the pizza slot in the freezer. What a great idea! I received so many compliments on this fridge. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a new refrigerator.

Ice and Condensation Issue - KNOWN PROBLEM

We purchased our refrigerator in March and 3 months later we are having the same issues as the previous reviewer. We have ice forming in the back of the refrigerator and large amounts condensation where the ice bin joins the door of the refrigerator. Had the repair folks out, they say it's a gasket problem, there is a retro-fix by installing a heater and new gaskets in the back of the refrigerator. Interestingly enough, the repair person came to our house with a TEAM of 4 Whirlpool representatives and the Whirlpool representative told me this is a "known problem" with this refrigerator. In addition to this problem, the measured water feature isn't working either. You ask it to dispense 1 cup, it dispenses 1/2 a cup. Whirlpool team AND repair folks were stumped by this and are ordering another part to fix the problem. 3 months, 2 major problems.

I am unhappy with any type of "retro-fix" on this $2500 refrigerator that is less than 4 months old. Whirlpool needs to make this right!

junk

By 

from Belton, TX

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Black French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Worst refrigerator I ever owned. Way too loud. I can hear hear it running two rooms away with my cpap machine running.Less than three years old and has already had sealed system repair, ice forms inside, icemaker ices up, freezer door grinds as you open it and door shelves fall out. The last shelf to fall had a glass jelly jar that chipped my tile This piece of junk is soon to be replaced.

I will never buy Whirlpool again. Ever.

By 

from Orlando, Florida

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Black French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Our 3 year old fridge is a nightmare. It all started when my husband and I decided to build our first custom home. We wanted beautiful, more top-of-the-line appliances (we couldn't afford Viking at the time, but we thought we settled for second best), and at the time we had researched Whirlpool and GE the most. In the end, we decided on this model Whirlpool Gold, paying roughly $2500.
This fridge is a little noisier than most, but this does not really bother me. Even as I sit here typing this in my living room I can hear the faint whir of a struggling motor. For 2 years, the only real complaint I had was the CHEAPY plastic drawers (one of which would always come off the track and sound like it was breaking in order to get it back into place). The other complaint was the odd placement of the tiny center drawer. I keep butter and cream cheese in it, but it's odd that in order to get to it you have to open both doors to get at it. Just a harmless poor design.
This brings us to the nightmare of year 3. It begins with small leak dripping from the area of the filter. The leak then became a monsoon, and we unplugged the water line in frustration. Next, our freezer was not freezing. It was the temperature of the fridge, which was not the appropriate cool. We finally gave in and called an appliance repairman at this point. He said in many complicated words that our evaporator is bad. Not only is this a KNOWN problem of this fridge listed, but Whirlpool actually covers the cost of the part and partial labor of the issue. That being said, it is still a HUGE job, which raked in a whopping $600. On a 3 year old fridge. That was the Gold "top-of-the-line" quality. This didn't even cover the leak problem. That was another hefty fix. On a 3 year old fridge. Oddly, our repairman suggested we not even make the repairs (meaning he doesn't get paid), but to spend the money on a new fridge. He informed us that this fridge is known to need constant repairs. So we are getting a Viking.

Roomy but have recommendations

By 

from Dothan, AL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Black French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I bought the 36 inch French Door Refrigerator about a month ago. It has a lot more space than my older refrigerator which was a side by side refrigerator-freezer. I was concerned at first with the loudness of the motor which I guess is due to the size and larger area to be cooled. Being a tall person, I was not thrilled about having to bend down to reach items in the freezer but it is okay. I especially like the section for whole pizzas. One recommendation for future models and they may already have noticed this. The drawer for cheese and other items - you have to open both doors to open this drawer. Two separate drawers may be better alternative.

I bought this three years ago and have problems with the ice maker the entire time. We had it serviced four times in the first year. As a result, we ice trays in our freezer.

MONEY PIT - STAY AWAY

By 

from NYM, MN

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Black French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I bought this fridge 3 years ago and has been nothing but a headache for me. I've had so many service calls on this thing.... the last was a complete overhaul and I am right back to the same problems. Currently sitting with a warm freezer/no ice and a fridge at 46 degrees. I have 4 kids under 5 years old... this is a huge problem and since the fridge is no longer under warranty I have to have all the repairs to deem "unrepairable" (for replacement) out of my own pocket. I basically have to buy another fridge that I can't afford, and shouldn't be in this position with a reputable company in the first place. This thing has leaked so much on my floors that is is ruining my hardwood, maybe Whirlpool wants to pay for that?! Stand by your lemons and replace these things. They should be recalled! My neighbor has the same model and has lots of repairs on his too!!

Nothing but problems..

By 

from Macomb, MI

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Black French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We bought this fridge for the size and the looks but have had numerous problems. Got original in 2012. In less than a year had problems with the freezer not staying cold enough. They replaced a part. It got better for a while then same thing happened. They ended up replacing the fridge at one year old. New fridge was ok from 2013-July 2016. Now same thing is happening with this one. Repairman came out and replaced condenser and evaporator per repair bulletin. It started to get colder but freezer never got below 15 degrees. Now they have to come out again. I've had it! This is the third time in 4 years I've had to live out of coolers for 1-2 weeks or more. I've had to spend lots of money on ice and replacing some food. I will never buy Whirlpool again!

Total disappointment

By 

from Chicago Illinois

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Black French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I've had this refrigerator for 2 years, just as the warranty expired it started leaking water under the freezer door. None of the documents available tell me how the water line is runs so I can determine the source of the water. In addition to the water problem, this fridge is noisy and the water filters are ridiculously expensive $49.99 each and need to replace them 3 times a year!

Worst one

By 

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Black French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

This refrigerator has been the worst and most expensive refrigerator I have owned, I had better luck with a Kenmore.
I have had so many problems with this box, to list a few...
The seals in the freezer leaking and needed replaced.
The coolant leaking (which according to the repair man is prone to happening with this model), a 700.00 dollar repair.
It barely keeps ice for our household of 3 on its "high" setting.
The motor occasionally chatters like the exhaust on a car, by occasionally I mean several time for 6 months and than nothing for a while.
Ice building up on the back top left corner (had this looked at a couple times)
Now I am getting warm pockets in the refrigerator, which has me baffled. I dot. Understand how I have ice cold waters but warm milk...?
I had a repair man tell me these refrigerators were, in his eyes, lemons and should all be replaced. They are all very problematic.
I have a warranty, thank God, and have had all these fixed but once the warranty is up I will not throw anymore money at this!
