If you want the bottom line: Buy this fridge! It's beautifully engineered, fits in a small space, is quiet, energy efficient, and surprisingly spacious! We've owned this fridge for a month now and felt this was enough time/usage for a genuine review.The last week of 2011 our 17 year old side-by-side refrigerator just ran out of gas. Let's just say my wife and I were NOT in the market for a new fridge. So I reluctantly scrambled to look online to educate myself on prices, features, etc. The only features my wife and I decided were top priorities were 1- a bottom drawer freezer and 2- no external water/ice. We also wanted as little "high tech" stuff as possible as we've heard/read many stories of technology breaking easily and being very expensive to repair/replace. We were also constrained to a relatively small width due to existing counter top space.We began our search at Lowe's on a Saturday morning. By narrowing our choices to the bottom drawer freezer, this narrowed our selection to essentially about 4 refrigerators. One last minute decision was French Doors vs. Single Door on top. The French Doors look beautiful; however, we personally found the NOISE every time you open and close the door -because of the necessary middle pivoting hinge - was simply too much for us.This essentially got us to this Whirlpool model. The first thing we loved was the MODULAR SPLIT SHELVES in the top fridge area. I can testify that this is a GAME CHANGER. The ability to customize the split shelves is a fantastic design. Yet if you need to keep a sheet cake or large casserole in the fridge, you can quickly level both sides and have the space you need.Having the gallon jug of milk kept in the door and not gobbling up shelf space is also a super design.The top door closes VERY tightly - I guess this is part of the energy efficiency. If you simply "pull" on the handle, it will literally pull the entire unit toward you - on wheels. Instead, I've found that a simple "tug" on the door handle will break the seal and open the door. No big deal but worth mentioning.The freezer is very spacious and has a smaller top half sliding drawer to keep things organized. Ice maker/tub inside on the top left. What more do we need?Every fridge will have some noise when it's running. This one is relatively quiet. You'll hear the fan running from time to time but that's about it. Noise is no issue here.One final comment about energy efficiency. A while back I bought a little gadge called a "Kill-A-Watt" that measures how much energy an appliance uses. My old fridge was costing me about $175/year to run. Ouch. This fridge is rated to cost me about $45/year. That's over $10 A MONTH in genuine savings!After a month, we're still blown away by how spacious this fridge is! Never a side-by-side again. Our is black and the exterior cleans easily. If you're looking for a beautiful, functional, bottom drawer freezer with no extras to break on you, this is your fridge! Thanks Whirlpool for a well designed refrigerator.

My family has always purchased Whirlpool products due to their quality and dependability but our last purchase was very disappointing. Disappointing due to the noise that this refrigator makes plus not being able to keep the front of the door looking clean. I went to the website to listen to the noise levels before purchasing and nothing was on this site warned me about the freon making such a noise, the best way for me to discribe the noise is a clucking chicken. I was told it only last for a few seconds but it is unpleasant to hear this noise throughout the day and night, needless to say when company is over it is very embarrsing. I love the style and the space that is refrigator has but would not recommend due to the noise that occurs when the freon is leveling out plus not being able to keep the door looking clean.

Great use of space in a smaller refrigerator
from Boston Area, MA
We have been very happy with this refrigerator. We are limited on size due to placement of cabinets in our kitchen, but this unit maximizes the fridge space. It is just my wife and I so perhaps we don't stock our fridge as much as families with kids do, but this has been great for us. My father, whose house has some really nice high end appliances, said, and I quote "This is a really nice fridge." Good value.
from Heath Ohio
I'm real happy with my new refrigerator. Super quiet and I'm very pleased with the ice maker.
Great New Unit
By PA Ron
from Central PA
Seems to work great, however we had to settle for a slightly smaller CU. Ft. size as the same size we had are now taller and would not fit the opening.
from Palo Alto, CA
Overall very pleased. Love the bottom freezer design. 4 comments that are why no 5 star rating:Door does not swing shut on its own like my old one so have to be attentive to the closing. Because door swings out so wide, have a small dent from where it hit adjacent cabinet door knob. I don't have it plumbed for auto ice. Could be better designed for ice tray use and include 2 with covers. A nice touch would be to include a sample of stainless steel cleaner, like the Boach dishwasher did for dishwashing stuff. Can't fit wine bottle in door shelf. So -- happy but still need door adjustment.
Excellent fridge for my needs
I've had it 2 months, everything is great, except for the freezer light burned out 1 month later.
Just what I needed
from Brooklyn, NY
I love my new Whirlpool. At first I was disappointed that the bottom wasn't a drawer but now I like it because it has a shelf for some items on the door so I put the things I access more often like Ice or ice cream on the door. It has a nice clean look and plenty of room. I like that you can adjust the heights of the shelves and that the crisper comes with a life extender kit.
from Lee ma
Like the frig, but it arrived with a dent in the side. When doors were reversed, scratches and dents were left. Replacement door arrived in the wrong size. Couldn't get ice maker to work. Had to have that remedied. Thankful that the appliance store where we purchased this is very amenable to our issues.
Very nicely designed
