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.

Love It!

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I love my new whirlpool refrigerator! It is so perfect for functionality. It has enough space for everything and I love the way the freezer is set up. It has a pizza slot plus two drawers above the main drawer that slide out. This means nothing is stacked on top of each other making it impossible to get to it. Everything is accessible and easy on the eyes. It makes great ice. It is not too noisy. I just love it!!

Nice fridge

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Bought about 6 weeks ago. Had to be replaced 3 days later. LED lights in top did not work and water filter leaked. 2nd fridge had issue with freezer door not shuttling properly. Delivery persons did not put on correctly. Touch pad is a little finicky doesnt work 1st time every time. Nice fridge with lots of room. Hopefully the problems are behind us.

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Bought this in the last month after doing a lot of online research. Everything worked just fine from the start. all the default temp settings were just right. The extra drawer between the refrigerator and the freezer is really convenient

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I have had this refrigerator a couple of weeks. The design is outstanding and it is very user friendly. The other brand I had did not last but 5 yrs and did not have near the storage as this design.Hopefully, , will an American made product I won't have as many problems. The ice maker is very easy to empty and it loads ice quickly. I can't say enough how much I am enjoying this refrigerator. Whirlpool Gold is my new brand!

massive storage and beautiful appearance

By

Comments about Whirlpool White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

PROS
Sleek and electronic controls. Makes enjoyable tones alerting to various statuses. Highly adjustable digital temperature controls. Plenty of storage, lots of drawers. Water line filter, can have solid or crushed ice. Lots of freezer space. Slides are smooth for freezer. inside is pretty. Quality feel, nothing janky or 'cheap' about this appliance! Controls are "touch screen" so if you like that tactile response you wont get that here.

Somewhat CONS --

Top doors require wide swing so if your fridge is next to a wall, consider it swinging open and hitting the wall.

Ice maker is liftable and removable but the bottom of the bin is open and ice will fall through as you lift it.
Water/Ice/Crushed is one button so you have to to go through 3 cycles to get to what you want.
Water spout is very forward and ice is further back. Takes some getting used to when the press-lever is the furthest back-- affects you when you use a smaller cup. Also the press-lever requires a good amount of push so weaker cups will bend to this. You have to use one hand to push the lever while you hold the cup in the other, and its a small space. Smaller children will have some difficulty with this. Its probably okay for a child that is in 2nd grade and higher. The height, depth, angle and stiffness of the press-lever requires you to be able to go at it from a straight direction. Hope this helps anyone with kids that want them to get water anytime they want. Although it might be good that they cant easily access it. Also you wouldn't want the little ones climbing in to the freezer playing around and getting stuck in there. Its a very big drawer and there is no 'safety' lock.

Works as expected. Encouraged by the rate in which Ice is made given the small size of the in-door ice bin. Love the 3 drawers in the freezer.
