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:

PROS
Sleek and electronic controls. Makes enjoyable tones alerting to various statuses. Highly adjustable digital temperature controls. Plenty of storage, lots of drawers. Water line filter, can have solid or crushed ice. Lots of freezer space. Slides are smooth for freezer. inside is pretty. Quality feel, nothing janky or 'cheap' about this appliance! Controls are "touch screen" so if you like that tactile response you wont get that here.

Somewhat CONS --

Top doors require wide swing so if your fridge is next to a wall, consider it swinging open and hitting the wall.

Ice maker is liftable and removable but the bottom of the bin is open and ice will fall through as you lift it.
Water/Ice/Crushed is one button so you have to to go through 3 cycles to get to what you want.
Water spout is very forward and ice is further back. Takes some getting used to when the press-lever is the furthest back-- affects you when you use a smaller cup. Also the press-lever requires a good amount of push so weaker cups will bend to this. You have to use one hand to push the lever while you hold the cup in the other, and its a small space. Smaller children will have some difficulty with this. Its probably okay for a child that is in 2nd grade and higher. The height, depth, angle and stiffness of the press-lever requires you to be able to go at it from a straight direction. Hope this helps anyone with kids that want them to get water anytime they want. Although it might be good that they cant easily access it. Also you wouldn't want the little ones climbing in to the freezer playing around and getting stuck in there. Its a very big drawer and there is no 'safety' lock.

Works as expected. Encouraged by the rate in which Ice is made given the small size of the in-door ice bin. Love the 3 drawers in the freezer.

Lots of space

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

My fiancé and I just moved into our first home after living in an apartment and this is the first refrigerator we have bought. I love how much space I have I meal prep for the whole week and there is enough room for 10 meal prepping containers plus my weeks groceries. I love having the freezer with the two level drawers. I also drink lots of water and the water out of the door is always cold. We have had this for about a month now and I don't hear any noise it's not loud. Over all I love it! It also looks great in my kitchen!

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Took me a year to decide on a refrigerator I have this 2 months and I do love it I was so worried about fingerprints on stainless steel but it's only me and my husband and if you use the handles you don't get fingerprints .I also wanted the 4th drawer for cold cuts and snacks and it is great so much room . My only complaint there isn't enough space for tall items ..it is very quiet....

I seen this fridge and it was love at first sight! The drawer under the doors is great for the grandkids and their snacks. Love the way the ice maker is, makes more room in the refrigerator part. Love the three drawers in freezer.
