    We needed a second refrigerator, and this one seemed to fit the bill...plenty of freezer and fresh food spaces. Unfortunately the first one delivered had a flaw in the molding which prevented a good seal from forming, so we had lots of problems with fresh food freezing. Our replacement is fantastic!

    We bought this refrigerator to replace a 17 year old Whirlpool of the same size that died in August of 2011. Quality of all the sliding drawers is very poor. The full width pantry drawer does not stay on its tracks and is made of very cheap plastic. Constantly falls off the tracks, basically useless. There is only one adjustment for temperature, which is suppose to control the freezer and the refrigerator compartments at the same time. Problem is that if you want the ice-cream to be frozen you end up freezing the food in the refrigerator compartment. Our old fridge could hold two one gallon jugs n the door, this one can't. Very disappointed in the quality and features.

    looks OK

    Comments about Whirlpool Black Top-Freezer Refrigerator:

    Seams to hold more than my older refrigerator the same size. Meat keeper easier to get to being in the center of refrigerator. Still looking at the ice production. Seams to allow water to overflow into ice bin and then refreeze to make an iceberg.

    Comments about Whirlpool Black Top-Freezer Refrigerator:

    We replaced our stainless steel refrigerator with this model and I am very happy with it! The space is perfect; the color is perfect (keeping stainless steel fingerprint free is impossible!). This refrigerator is super quiet.

    Very Unhappy New Owner

    By mwr15

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Whirlpool Black Top-Freezer Refrigerator:

    Unfortunately, this refrigerator was unavailable to see at our local hardware and appliance stores, so we purchased it based on online descriptions. The biggest limitation to our shopping choices was that we had to get something to fit the space we have available. The refrigerator is just okay. The design is poor. Inside, there is a wide, deep track above the top shelf that blocks anything very tall from being stored on that shelf underneath the track. The freezer door is so big and the bottom edge so low that we have to bend down to see anything in the refrigerator, even the top shelf. Because the big freezer door is lower than normal, it's easy to end up bumping your head on it. You just don't expect a door edge down so far. We have the simplest model, no ice maker, so the freezer space is particularly large. On top of our major disappointment with the design of this refrigerator (which replaced an older Whirlpool model we really liked), we have had screeching sounds coming from it since the day it was delivered. Even though we purchased an extended warranty, the problem has not been fixed. We've been told it is a bad fan, and both fans in the refrigerator (one in the freezer, one towards the bottom of the refrigerator) have been replaced and yet we endure this screeching sound to this day. We are hoping it can be fixed, of course, but the service company is not being responsive right now. The screeching is metallic, and very, very loud, audible throughout the entire house. This screeching occurs at least once every hour, sometimes more, and it lasts anywhere from a minute to many minutes. It is the kind of sound that goes right through you. We expected a Whirlpool refrigerator that we would have for the next 15 or more years. This one is not only disappointing, but sounds like it's in its death throes every day. We have no idea if our food is being kept at the correct temperature with the fan not operating correctly. We have never experienced such difficulties with a major appliance and getting what should be a simple repair done. For that matter, we never expected a brand new refrigerator to need repairing from the very first day it was installed.

    Disappointed

    By Theresa71

    from Manitoba, Canada

    Comments about Whirlpool Black Top-Freezer Refrigerator:

    When we purchased this refrigerator we thought that here was one more adjustable shelf after much confusion we found out there was not. We did not want a bottom mounted freezer and we found that we had very few choices available. Whirlpool is a good name but not overall pleased with the is product.

    Came with new build

    By Issyobella

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Whirlpool Black Top-Freezer Refrigerator:

    The fridge appears to be a good size, but after trying to put groceries away, I find that the functionality is lacking. The shelves don't configure well and I lose a lot of space. My last fridge (Another brand) was a base model also, and it had a much better design internally.
