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 Stainless Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

        I am on my 3rd Whirlpool refigerator in 2 years and I have had it. Does not seem like I can ever catch a break with my fridges from Whirlpool and all have the same or similar problem. Ice builds up and condensation in the top left corner of the fridge, my ice maker does not work at all and the bottom freezer door accumulates ice. No one seems to know how to fix it and I have been without an ice make since June 3,2015. Still waiting on parts. I want a refund and want to move on but of course they won't do that!

                          I wouldn't buy this again. When I bought this I was never told about the compressor being variable speed and 240V , which makes this very NOISY! I had a repairman here to fix what I thought was something wrong and he told me its just the way this model is.

                                We have had this about a month and like all but the big refer drawer above the freezer drawer needs movable dividers. The three compartments are not always the right size. Also every thing is always in the back of the drawer, go figure.

                                      I've only had this fridge for two weeks, so I can't say how it stands the test of time. The quick access fridge drawer is a great little feature. I also like the tri-level shelves in the freezer. Only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is the compressor is a little loud.

                                                  We've had this fridge for a month and it's so cool! Guests are so impressed when they see it. It has a lot of room inside. Sliding shelf to fit tall items, super cute sliding bins that are perfect for cheese sticks, large separate snack drawer, sliding freezer drawers, and a handy pizza pocket! The in-door ice maker is out of the way too. This fridge is perfect for families.

                                                        Sometimes there isn't a whole lot to say about a product and how it functions. It's a refrigerator - it keeps things cold.

                                                        This one, though, does have a few features that stand out.

                                                        First, it's very well lit in the refrigerator compartment and intermediate drawer. The frezzer also has a light, but it's not quite as effective as the other compartments.

                                                        Second, the drawer slides are notably better quality than many other models. It also has nice, usable shelves and storage.

                                                        Finally, going to a stainless steel refigerator had me a little concerned that every smudge and bit of dirt would show, but it's not bad at all.

                                                        The biggest downside the single water/ice paddle - it gets a little annoying toggling between ice and water all the time. The other is that the door trays are a little fragile - one already cracked.

                                                        Other than that, it's a nice unit that I hope to get many years of service from.

                                                              We bought this refrigerator earlier this month
                                                              and my wife is still thrilled with it. She loves the extra room and features in this
