We bought this frig cause it had the freezer on the bottom. It took me a while to decide to buy it. I really love it. I like being able to see all that is in my frig without getting down on the floor to find the stuff hiding on the bottom in the back. I can see all that now. Even the French doors are nice. Take up less space to open them. The freezer is so nice with pull out drawer. Our first frig with water and ice dispenser. That is nice! We've had this about a month now and have no complaints. Everything is perfect.

I purchased French door refrigerator WRF989SDAE00 3/2014 from BrandSmart to upgrade from a side by side Kenmore purchased in 2005 with my home (no mechanical issues with my Kenmore and thank goodness I kept it in the garage). Within 2 months the freezer would not stay cold enough to freeze ice cream and Whirlpool sent an authorized repair company (FLAMINGO APPLIANCE SERVICE) to replace the compressor. Well this became a reoccur theme every 2 - 2 months the refrigerator has an issue with maintaining temperatures cold enough to freeze ice (so puddles of water all over the floor from melted ice in the ice maker) and forget about buying ice cream. We have not purchased ice cream since the second time this piece of junk broke down.

This is my FOURTH REPAIR (3 COMPRESSORS, 1 EVAPORATOR, AND, 1 CONTROL PANEL). All but the last repair occurred during the warranty period but Whirlpool refuses to replace the unit. Side note: I also purchased a Whirlpool dishwasher the same day as my refrigerator and it also stopped working within the same week of the first refrigerator repair. So far I have not had any issues with the dishwasher. I WILL NEVER PURCHASE WHIRLPOOL APPLIANCES... NEVER!!!

        Comments about Whirlpool Gold Ice Refrigerator And Bottom Freezer:

        I have always bought Whirlpool appliances but now I'm doubting my judgment. Fully remodeled kitchen 2 yrs ago, all new appliances and have had nothing but problems with my refrigerator. First one was taken back and replaced with a new one, it just didn't work. Now this one is a not so good replacement Have had repairman out 3 times Ice Maker didn't work or made ice when it felt like it. Ice built up inside the refrigerator. Was running non stop and freezer quit working. Now that we've gotten it "fixed" it makes maybe 10 ice cubes, or spits one out on the floor. Will never buy another one. The repairman told my husband that you can't open both doors at the same time or we'll get ice build up inside! Okay but in order to shut the left door you have to open the right one. left me confused.

                          Bought this 2 years ago and it started leaking and was leaving huge amounts of water laying all through the fridge and cost me almost $200 and then the water and ice stopped working. The repair company told us another $600 to fix it. Everything is internal so it is Whirlpools electronics that are faulty. They said they can't do anything about it. I guess spending over $2,700 on a refrigerator means nothing. What happend to product quality?? Whirlpool is all about the money, they don't care about customer satisfaction or quality..

                                      Don't be fooled by the sleek look of this refrigerator. It has been nothing but problems. That is probably why it is discontinued. The ice maker froze up and now doesn't work at all, the doors leak water every time you open them, the freezer is not cold enough and it is begining to rust inside. All these problems started right after the two year warranty expired. I have tried several reapir companies, but none of them want to work on this model. Whirpool denies any issues. I guess they don't read the reviews. Way to stand behind your product. Save yourself the time and money and avoid this product :(

                                            I love the freezer in the bottom and it has enough room with the separate drawer. The refrigerator has plenty of room in it also. Love the refrigerator. I had to get use to the sounds it makes.

                                              We bought this frig cause it had the freezer on the bottom. It took me a while to decide to buy it. I really love it. I like being able to see all that is in my frig without getting down on the floor to find the stuff hiding on the bottom in the back. I can see all that now. Even the French doors are nice. Take up less space to open them. The freezer is so nice with pull out drawer. Our first frig with water and ice dispenser. That is nice! We've had this about a month now and have no complaints. Everything is perfect.

                                              Delivery was awesome. Crew was very easy to work with. They actually had to take the dolly part way around our block to get into alley thru our garage to get it into our house. No complaints. And they set it all up and made sure it was working. Great guys!

                                              Comments about Whirlpool Gold Ice Refrigerator And Bottom Freezer:

                                              Hate Stainless steel so I wanted white with just S/S accents- Everyone comes in and loves this look- esp. someone who has to clean their s/s ref.
                                              Did have a problem with icemaker- went out and then the freezer- sad it happened within a year....BUT ABT was great and replaced it- GET THE WARRANTY and don't buy it anywhere else but ABT!!
                                              Sadly, no one is making any appliances that last 10 + years anymore......

                                              VERY Careful with my wood floors- very knowledgeable-took their time- did a great job and didn't leave until I was happy with placement ( it was a very tight squeeze)

                                                At first it was hard to get used to limited freezer space (compared to side by side) but it's teaching us to eat fresh - and we love it!
