I am absolutely delighted to have this fridge in my new kitchen. It serves my every purpose. I can store vegetables and fruits in one seperate drawer so don;t have to open the entire frige to access it.
The freezer space is huge. It has lovely compartments to sort and keep items hardly used , more frequently used etc. The in door pizza storage is also great.
Delivery was a breeze. The personnel were professional , courteous and very mindful of our new home and the new fridge and installation was very quick. Thanks Whirlpool.

I purchased this fridge about two months ago. First problem from the time it was installed, the doors on top we're very uneven. It took two trips to get it adjusted. A million finger smudges later, spacers were installed. Still not 100% even. Then my freezer went thru the defrost cycle. I called out a warranty repair, The repair guy told me the issue is one of 4 issues this model has and nothing he can do. It will happen. So I spent a lot of $$ on this! Two weeks later, ice forms again. This time it's not unthawing. It's a loud fridge, makes noises all day. I wouldn't buy this fridge! My frozen food boxes are super soft. Very disapoionted. Freezer drawers are hard to open since the ice freezes them shut.

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Three months and still in love with my fridge. Well lit, lots of room, great comfortable access and there's still lots I'm discovering I can do! I would buy this again and again! People complain of noise level. Ours is located in an open space area where family room is connected to kitchen. We have hardwood floors. I can't hear operating sounds at all!

Love the flexible storage in this fridge!

By

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We purchased this fridge because our old fridge was having issues with the water in the door. As it was in the house when we bought it, we weren't sure how old it was and have already put some money into it. We knew we wanted a fridge with French doors, but didn't know about the drawer option. We are very pleased with how organized we can keep this fridge as compared to the side by side we had before.

Nice layout

By 

from Birmingham, Al

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

This refrigerator is decent, I really like the layout and that was the main reason I purchased this one over the other models available. That and I have had good experiences with whirlpool refrigerators in the past.
This is an older model and I don't think it meets today's energy star requirements.
The reason I didn't rate five stars are the issues I had with the door not sealing when closed. After I took delivery I noticed the refrigerator wasn't sealing when the doors were closed. Upon closer inspection I saw the left side door was sitting much lower than the right. I tried to adjust the left door but unlike the right side door there was no way to adjust it. This made the middle piece that opens and closes as you open the door not operate correctly, causing the doors to not seal. The refrigerator was ultimately replaced but I think that is a design flaw that could cause problems down the line.
The pro's
The layout
Automatic cup fill
Lots of room
Fairly quite
Pizza storage
Individual compartments
The con's
Not energy star
The left door height isn't adjustable

Beautiful Whirlpool French Door

By 

from Marion, Ohio

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

This purchase was made with MUCH hesitation. I had read many, many reviews regarding french door refrigerators. However, this one had all the features we wanted and it was on sale, so we took the plunge.
We have had it for about six weeks. The lighting is amazing, everything stays fresher longer, no problem with ice and water in door (yet), it is not noisy (as many reviewers experienced). We did purchase the five-year warranty due to the nightmare reviews some people experienced with all brands of french door refrigerators.
There was one "hitch" to our story. We had an $85.00 bill because the installer couldn't hook up our water for the ice and water dispenser--they didn't have the part (we had an ice and water dispenser in our previous refrig--line was there!). So, when you purchase, make sure you have the part you need in order to save more cost (unless you can do it yourself).
