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.

Great Refrigerator

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We have had this refrigerator for just under a month and could not be happier. It is the most quite one we have ever owned. We love all the multiple drawers and compartments even if I can't remember where I put something . Friends have commented that it has more room than their Sub-Zero. Great price when compared to similar brands.

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

So far so good....i read other revies that said the water dispenser was too far back....either they changed it or tgey were talking about a different fridge. Water dispenser is nearer the front and works much better than our other fridge where it was too far back. Love the drawer. So far we r happy! Nice and bright inside too! Lots of light! It is a little louder on occasion than our other fridge but not constant.

Needs engineering change.

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

After delivery, we noticed that the left door is lower than the right. According to the paperwork, only the right door is adjustable. Have been waiting 2 weeks for a replacement. Meanwhile, because of the left door lower, the ice chute does not seal inside, allowing some puddling inside the refrigerator.

Love affair with my Refrigerator!!!!!

By 

from Junction city. Ohio

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

This refrigerator is so easy to get into for me and my better half, he is in a power chair. He can get into all but the top shelf. It is
organized to have so much room. The pizza in the door of the freezer is awesome. The fruit and vegetables drawers are the best ever. When you want to get something out you open one door and it doesn't lose all the cool air. The design is sleek and wipes off easy for the out side , the inside is designed to make items more accessible. The refrigerator is very quite . The features are great , getting just one cup of water when you are baking saves so much time. Bottom line I LOVE my refrigerator!!!

Love It!

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I love everything about it. I have had side-by-sides forever, and when I first saw the French-Door refridgerators, I knew that was what I wanted when I needed a new one. I like being able to have enough room to move around and get things in and out with ease. The drawer is awesome! It makes it easy to get to the things you use the most. The freezer is so much easier to find, and organize things. I highly recommend this model to everyone. I just love it, and can't say enough about it. Thank you!

Great Features

By 

from Nashville, TN

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I really love the use of space with this refrigerator. Having the ice maker in the door changes the entire use of space in the fridge. Having the small drawer set into the gap where the door sits and in front of the other drawers is a great use of space. We can store small condiments and things in there. And the layout for the freezer is great. I was never a fan of bottom freezers because it becomes a dumping ground. But with the 2 pull out drawers stacked on top of each other it makes organizing so much easier. The pocket drawers built into the actual door of the freezer are great for tall or bulky shaped items. And the adjusted "bin" thats the base of the freezer is a great feature.

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

This refrigerator is awesome!!! Wanted a refrigerator with more fridge space and less freezerpace and this one fits the bill. It has so much storage and it's so convenient to have everything at eye level. I researched all the major brands and chose this one for design, reliability, and storage. Plus it's made in the USA the best feature!!!! It's quiet and maintains an accurate temperature. The ice maker makes plenty of ice and the freezer has a ton of space as well. The little slide drawers in the top make great use of space for tiny things that get lost in the back. There's plenty of room in the door for all your condiments and drinks. The middle drawer is great for can drinks and anything else including deli meats and vegetables.
I read a lot of bad reviews on every brand I researched so wanted to give a good review for others to see.
