    Three years ago I purchased another brand French Door Fridge even though I read the reviews that the ice maker was extremely loud. I thought, "Oh how loud could it be?" Should have listened to the reviews. In addition, I found it very inconvenient having to open both doors in order to pull out the big drawer inside the fridge. Of course, this is characteristic in 3 door fridges. I also very much disliked the design of the water/ice dispenser area. The back side is slanted allowing water to dip on it all the time resulting in water marks that wouldn't come off. Keeping all this in mind I started looking for a fridge that would eliminate these problems. Found the Whirlpool 4 door and love, love it. The pull out drawer for snacks, drinks or whatever is so convenient. Also, the drop of the ice is so much quieter, hardly noticeable. Water/ice dispenser area is very easy to clean and never shows water marks. Having the ice compartment in the door gives me more fridge room. The only reason I gave a 4 instead of 5 on design is because I don't find the door area for storing milk (or gal jugs) easy to use, but I'm beginning to get use to it and building my left arm muscle at the same time. Ha. An added feature that I've never seen in other refrigerators before is the stainless steel accent handles. Very nice looking on the black and gives a different look. Although, it was costly to change, I would do it again in a heartbeat!

    Bought this fridge in Feb14 to replace a 17 yo Kenmore side-by-side. While this new 4-door unit has lots of nice features (roomy, lighting, convenient), the compressor noise is a huge disappointment. We never imagined it would be so much louder than a unit from the 90's. Called Whirlpool customer care, and she confirmed that the new, "efficient" compressors are louder and there's nothing to do but live with it. Another complaint -- after the delivery guys left and I went to hook up the water, I found the threads for the screws that attach the water valve inlet port to the walls of the fridge (lower back left corner) were stripped. I had to find some larger screws and re-tap in order to get a tight connection. Also, part of that piece was assembled sloppily - one flange was outside the wall -- supposed to be inside. Just sloppy work by whoever was installing that piece, including stripping the threads. Finally, the ice in the ice maker clumps together. Sometimes to the extent it won't come out of the dispenser. Have to remove ice compartment, break up ice or dump/start over. Also, be sure to hold glass close to dispenser or some water / ice will spill onto floor.

        We have always had a side by side frig, and this is our first one with the bottom freezed...and it it is easier and much more convienent than and other type we have eaver used. The inside lighting is wonderful and the drawers and slelves...as well as the door shelves, make this the best frig we have evr had. I wish we had bought one years ago. Kudos on a great model and new inovations...

            Comments about Whirlpool Monochromatic Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator:

            This refrigerator was a replacement for WRF989SDAW which basically was a lemon of a machine. It started breaking down 5 months into our purchase. We were given the option of this 4 drawer and we are tickled beyond words. Our favorite feature is the 4th drawer...the convenience of not having to open the French doors every time we want to go to the often used items is such a plus. The inner bins are roomy and handles were moved to the bottom of the bins which makes them easier to slide. Overall, there are major improvements here.

                      A great refrigerator for a family, kids use the snack compartments instead of standing there with the doors wide open trying to figure out what they want great to keep organized and rotate your stock and the LED lighting is killer! Also on recommended temps the milk is nice and cold.

                        I have had this refrigerator for two months now, and I really like it! First off, its beautiful and looks great in my new kitchen. For my family of 4, it is plenty spacious. There are lots of different ways to arrange the shelves, and we are still figuring out what works best for us. I like the large storage bins on the door for milk, juice, etc so they aren't taking up space. I wasn't sold on the refrigerated drawer, but my husband really wanted it. Now I can't imagine not having it! Its so convenient for the kids' snacks and drinks, and our soda cans. The only thing I would change about this fridge is the ice maker. It is soooo slow and the bin hardly holds any ice. Overall, we love it though!

                                  I've had this refrigerator for 3 months now and am very happy with it. I chose this model in large part because of the extra refrigerated drawer and I think it was worth the extra money. The drawer is very handy (we use it for cheese and meat - especially defrosting since the tray is divided to contain any spilled juices). The french door section is also spacious with easily adjustable shelves. I especially love having the three produce drawers - the two side drawers open with only one of the doors open. I also like the multiple drawers in the freezer - it's easy to find things without having to dig through cold items. The freezer could be considered small on its own, but I have a separate chest freezer so the organization was definitely more important to me than size. The only negative things I can say are that the stainless shows fingerprints (not a big deal) and that the water dispenser could have been better designed. The lever to active the dispenser is touchy - you have to press the top half of the lever with fairly consistent pressure to keep water or ice flowing and it's not intuitive to guests how to change between ice and water. Not a deal breaker, just occasionally inconvenient. Also, when first installed the water spout pointed way too forward and would shoot past the cup and onto the floor in front of the fridge! Luckily it was easy to push the spout back and it's properly aimed now. Lastly, I have noticed that it's a little noisy when actively running (usually right after the door is closed or when the ice maker is filling, otherwise not very often), but I wouldn't consider it disruptive.
