Had this fridge for 1 week. ?Immediately noticed the noise level. ?Much louder than my Amana. ?Only reason I go rid of my Amana was the water dispenser was inside the fridge & I wanted it outside & wanted the ice dispenser outside. ?Finally chose this Whirlpool as it was the only White higher end large fridge I could find. ?I did not want stainless. ?It will take some getting used to the French Doors - I find a bit of a pain to open both doors especially with hands full. ?I do love the look of the fridge - white with the stainless handles & the ice/water dispenser on the outside. ?The flow of the water seems slow. ?It does not dispense 8 ounces in less than 8 seconds like the manual says it should. ?That is without the filter. ?We have an RO system so need for the fridge filter that slows the flow even more. ?My RO system dispenses faster & the fridge is on the same line so the issue is somewhere in the fridge. ?I am undecided on the fridge yet. ?

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:

        Less than 2 yes old and professionally diagnosed with compressor failure and leaked freon. Called whirlpool, waited 25 min to speak to someone, then after a year they don't stand behind their products. I would recommend another brand from a company that believes in their products.

              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.

                                                        I bought this and all new appliances in the ICE line by whirlpool. Love this fridge as I am tall and it is easy to see everything. The water and ice are awesome as I have teenagers and we all know how they never fill those ice cube trays. Highly recommend this one!

                                                              Two months in with our new purchase and loving the look of it and the huge space. Lots of room so our food is more visible and less waste. Freezer is perfect size and access. Noise not as bad as others have claimed. The water and ice dispenser is used every day. I can see why newer model has fourth door/drawer as it is extra effort to open both doors for the big slide out drawer access. Based on look and function of this fridge, we'll likely buy another Whirlpool appliance soon.
