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.

It's HUGE! We'd have to buy WAY more than we need to fill it

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We bought this a couple weeks ago, not because our old one shot craps, but because we saw it at Lowe's and decided right then that we wanted it. It looks great in our kitchen and it's HUGE. I have a bad back and it's nice not to have to bend over to get something out of it. We love it.

Solid refrigerator from a solid company.

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We purchased this refrigerator at the end of December and have really enjoyed it so far. It has great storage capacity and a separate refrigerator drawer that is awesome for us to store our fruits and vegetables. We also have found the freezer hold a lot of stuff. A deep storage bin and two pull out drawers.

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I am very pleased with my Whirlpool. My previous refrigerator was a side by side so the new one is an enjoyable experience. I was concerned about the ice maker but we have plenty of ice. I love the interior lighting.

Very pleased so far - very nice upgrade to our kitchen

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We've had the fridge for almost two months. Replaced a 30 year old GE side by side which was still going strong by it was time....

Pros: Appearance, various storage areas (drawers, slots, shelves, etc), depth (slightly shallower than many others), interior lighting is bright. We like the extra drawer.

Cons: nothing significant. as others have said, water dispenser tends to end up with some on the floor -- I can't understand why the "drip tray" at the bottom of the opening doesn't have a shallow area to store minor drips -- it's just flat. The settings on the chill drawer are easy to change by accident as you open and close the drawer. Other than these two minor issues, no cons as yet. We have not noticed any significant noise as yet.

I'm amused each day when I open it, and inside it looks just like the promotional pictures.

I would say it holds a little less than our side-by-side which was similar cubic feet, but after a couple of days using it, we worked out how to take advantage of the spaces it provides.
