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.

Got a Lemon!!!!Whirlpool Gold Series WRF989SDAM

By 

from Kingsburg, CA

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We bought all new appliance when we bought our new home in 2013. We bought the (what we thought was top of the line) appliances, one which was the Whirlpool Gold WRF989SDAM. The Ice maker only worked for the first year and then never worked again. Of course, warranty is only for one year. Not worth fixing, cost to much. And then our freezer went out after only having it for 3 years. Called our appliance repair person and it was going to cost over $1,000 to replace the broken part. Not very happy that we spent over $2,000 for a "top of the line" refrigerator for it only to work for 3 years. Needless to say I am not very happy and really disappointed in having to buy another refrigerator. It still looks brand new. ARGH, so frustrating. Good thing we have our old faithful basic little frig in the garage that is over 15 years old.

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Can't give 5 stars solely because of length of ownership (2 weeks) but everything is working wonderfully so far. Hope it continues for years to come (knock on wood) :)

Continuous problems with Whirlpool refrigerator

By 

from Wichita, KS

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I bought a new Whirlpool refrigerator in January of this year. As soon as it was installed, it leaked water inside. The appliance store I bought it from came out and replaced the filter. It still leaked. Whirlpool had a local appliance repair shop come out, take it apart, and fix it. Of course they had to order the parts and come back in a week. A month or so later, we noticed that some of the ice cubes had black plastic pieces in them. I called Whirlpool again, who sent out the appliance repair people. We were told that there was a broken part in the ice maker and pieces of it were getting in our ice. I don't understand why there would be another broken part inside the NEW refrigerator we just bought. They had to order the part and return in a week to make the repair. I just got off the phone with Whirlpool again. The ice maker is still having issues. You can set it on cubes, but sometimes you get cubes, sometimes crushed ice, and sometimes a mixture of both. It doesn't matter what you set it on. The ice will also get clogged in the inside of the door, and then when you open the door, ice will go all over the floor. I just spent 45 minutes on the phone with Whirlpool, to once again get scheduled with the appliance repair company. When I asked about getting a new refrigerator that didn't have so many problems, the customer service representative ignored me, like she didn't hear me, which I found to be rude. I am really disappointed with my new refrigerator, to the point I wish I had my 20 year old refrigerator back. I am glad I bought an extended warranty, because Whirlpool just wants to keep fixing a product that has continually had issues since day 1. I will be posting reviews everywhere I can.

Whirlpool fridge

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Purchased a few months ago. Love it so far. The water/ice dispenser push lever is a little difficult/awkward to push and cup has to be perfectly under it or ice/water spills. (Kids mostly with smaller cups. Love the measure auto-fill feature!

Headlines are Dumb

By 

from Portland OR

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We bought ours about two weeks ago and have been very happy with it. Everyone in the house loves being able to set the ounces of water to be dispensed. The only thing I have noticed that is not cleverly designed is the gallon storage in the door. The shelves are deep enough to hold gallon jugs but they are awkward to remove with all three shelves in place.

Roomy with lots of shelves and compartments

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I've purchased this with family meals during holidays in mind. I wanted something roomy and able to hold many different items. There are many drawers and shelf options. The ice maker and water dispenser is a must for me. I've only had it for a couple months now, and I am very pleased and expect it to b a winner!
