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.

So far so good

By 

from Anchorage, AK

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We've had this refrigerator for a couple of months and are very happy with it, especially compared to the side-by-side we replaced. Storage is larger and relatively more convenient. The middle "drawer" is really nice for quick access to often used items. The freezer compartment seems smaller but is much more convenient for accessing items. One complaint is the water dispenser is set too far forward of the activating paddle for all but the biggest glasses. If you always use the calibrated dispenser mode then it's not a problem. Another issue is the door compartments do not provide enough room for tall bottles which means having to put them in the left main compartment in front of the recessed shelf.
All in all we're happy and would expect to give it a 5 star rating in a couple of years assuming reliability doesn't become an issue.

Love the storage, hate the drip

By 

from Bakersfield

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

After extensive research and careful evaluation of our personal grocery habits, we selected this Whirlpool fridge specifically because of the large center drawer which is in addition to the full size produce storage bins inside this particular model. It arrived just prior to the Thanksgiving holiday and the 22.5 cu ft GE side by side I replaced was bursting at the seams with groceries. I removed everything from the old fridge, organized same volume of food inside the new Whirlpool and was happy to find lots of space to spare. It seems no matter how much extra produce I throw at it, this wonderful design just keeps swallowing it up. The center drawer design is so fantastic, I don't know why every manufacturer is not copying it. If you read the reviews of French Door units, a recurring theme is the nuisance of opening both doors to access the large bottom deli bin. Put that drawer in its own space, not inside the double doors! This also helps if you have width limitations that constrict the distance your doors can swing back. You should note, these doors are quite deep and require a good amount of clearance to permit the interior vegetable bins full access to slide in and out. Now the drip and mess. In fairness, because of the holiday, I have not yet requested a service call on the new unit, but it does have a very messy ice dispenser and a persistent delayed drip after using the water dispenser. I had read this in other reviews but overlooked it, now will have to deal with a service call to try to remedy the issue. On a side note: to everyone installing a new fridge with ice maker (since none of us do this every day) Your new refrigerator will not be making ice for up to 24 hours. You will be asked to discard the first 3-5 batches of ice. This means you will not have useful ice from your new appliance for nearly two days. If you have the ability, bag and freeze some ice from your old appliance before your toss it all out!

Love this fridge

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

So much room in this fridge and you can see everything you need thanks to the LED lighting. The middle drawer of the fridge is a bonus. I don't find much use for the pizza storage in the freezer but my visiting daughter thought it was a significant addition for a busy family.

Excellent Fridge

By 

from California

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Bought this fridge a month ago when my GE finally died. Wasn't sure if I was going to like the center drink drawer, however after using it for a while it is definitely nice. After reading the reviews on the fridge elsewhere online, I was sold on whirlpool compared to other brands. Whirlpool definitely seems to stand out among their competitors. I have a whirlpool washer and dryer as well for over 3 years without a hiccup. Would recommend.
