I LOVE this fridge! I've had it 2 wks now. I would've given it a 5 star, but Best Buy delivery was way outside 4:30-6:30pm window, delivery/install was 8-8:30pm. I did like the free delivery and haul away. Now the fridge; its great to open and see our food in front of us, the 3 clear drawers show my fruits, veggies and cheeses clearly and the lighting makes everything so appetizing and bright. This will be easy to clean. You can see the food, so no waste and non-spill shelving and clear drawers and bins easy to keep clean. 5 Door bins are adjustable, and the lowest, permanent, 6th door bin is deep enough for bulky jugs. The lowest shelf rests above the 2 clear bins across the width of fridge. Other 4 are adjustable and one has the cheese/meat drawer below. There is room for everything we need and then some. The freezer is a drawer and not a door that swings and I love that feature as it only requires some bending at waist no squatting to see what is in the rear as they both pull out. Also as a previous rater stated there's a divider on top basket that can't be removed or adjusted, that is not the case. I like to store tubs, frozen casseroles and meals in boxes in top basket. The bottom basket can pull completely out for refrigerator floor cleaning when/if it becomes necessary. It is divided in half and I love that, I have meat on one side and frozen veggies and fruit on other. Its motor is very quiet and efficient, doesn't come on much. I keep settings at '5' and its just right. All appliances were here when I moved in 13 yrs ago, and I'm planning on replacing the oven and dishwasher in this year as well. Dishwasher doesn't work. Going with Whirlpool. Just haven't decided on going with Best Buy yet.

This refrigerator is amazing, or I'm assuming it is.
We originally ordered this fridge because it met the measurements our apartment complex gave us. Now, granted, I should've measured myself before just going on what they said the measurement was.
The delivery men come, and tell us we are an inch off. 1 inch.
So, we freak out and went to bestbuy and were able to get the brother to this Fridge (which was cheaper because it was on clearance and a bunch of other boring things...)
The fridge we do have is the exact same as this, but black and a little smaller and it is fantastic!
The freezer capacity is better than I believed it would be. Granted you can't put big pizza boxes in it, but that is fine. Just take it out of the box and if you must, cut out the heating directions and put it with the pizza or whatever it is that wouldn't fit.
I can't speak for the ice maker, because our complex is older and does not have the hook-up for water. (Side-note: you must but the water line for Best Buy to deliver, install and take away the old one. If you are like me and don't have a water hook-up, you can always return the water line after it gets delivered. The Best Buy person told me that, and that is what I did.)
The fridge is amazing. Being able to fit the milk jug on the door is fantastic. One of the main thing we wanted in a new fridge (apart from bottom freezer) were the solid shelves that have the lip surrounding the edge, "spill-proof", and this fridge has it, and it really does work. We had wire racks before, and not only would there be a pool of mess on the bottom shelve, the food in the fridge that was directly below what spilled, would also the a mess from the dripping. Such a nasty thing that has been solved now.
The temperature controls are digital, but not by degree. They are digital numbers 1-7 with 7 being the coldest and LED lights inside which makes it so bright inside!
BEWARE: You might be blinded when you go to the fridge for a 2 am drink because the lights are very bright.
Also, in case you were wondering, the black version we have is a smooth finish on the front, no bumps. Although for full disclosure, the sides do have the bumpy texture.
All in all: I believe we would have loved this fridge since we love the younger and smaller brother version.
FYI: The fridge totally matches our new stove. Even though they were bought at different times. Bought the Silver Fridge and the stove at the same time, fridge was too big and we went and found the smaller fridge. Which matches the stove better in my opinion.

WE LIKED THIS REFRIGERATOR BECAUSE IT HAS PLENTY OF ROOM,NICE AND BRIGHT, AND IT IS EASY TO REACH ITEMS WITH OUT BENDING OVER. THE DOOR FOR THE FRIDGE AND THE FREEZER BOTH HAVE EXCELLENT SEALS. ALSO LIKE THE BACK PANEL BEING ALL METAL RATHER THAN THE FLIMSY CARDBOARD ON LOWER PRICED MODELS.

Best fridge for the money
Posted by: Reviewer39 from: on
Don't waste your money on a more expensive refrigerator unless it has some specific features that this one does not. This fridge is everything I hoped for, and Best Buys guys came and installed it perfectly (which included removing the door handles to ge it through my kitchen door. Looks great. Seal are tight. Keeps things cold and organized. Highly recommended.

Would be nice to have water dispenser inside this refrigerator and a deeper ice bucket
but it is spacious and suitable
to those who stated the freezer dividers were NOT removable...try looking closer and have patience if you push in the clips on the dividers they even come right out...imagine

Great but noisy.
Posted by: ilovetoeat from: on
Very pleased with the capacity of both the refrigerator and freezer. Very convenient with refrigerator on top. No bending over to see what's in the back of the shelves. It is noisier than what I wanted and motor runs more than I thought it would. I can hear it in the next room when watching TV. SS adds class to my kitchen. If you don't mind the noisy motor I'd recommend it.

Fits our needs
Posted by: Budgeteer from: Appleton, WI on
This is the largest capacity bottom freezer type that would fit our opening. Side by side models don't have either refrigerator or freezer shelves that are wide enough. It delivered on time and with good service. It works as advertised.

This unit is a fantastic "PAIN SAVER". My wife and I both have aery bad backs. This unit saves us from having to do contortions to find items on the bottom self. JUST FANTASTIC.........

Not as good as my other Whirlpool appliances
Posted by: Kathy from: on
I've owned Whirlpool appliances for 23 years, so I decided to stick with a trusted brand. When Best Buy delivered the refrigerator, it had several dents on the side. Best Buy compensated me for the damage. Then within the first week, the freezer frosted over. Again Best Buy stood by their product and delivered another refrigerator. The 2nd refrigerator had a slight flaw on the door. We solved that problem by swapping the doors. This refrigerator is louder than the 19 year old refrigerator that it replaced. Other than those issues I am fairly happy with this frig. It has taken some time to adjust to a smaller refrigerator. I went from a 26 cu. ft. to a 21.9 cu. ft. That was a mistake. I don't think I would buy this refrigerator again. On a positive note, KUDOS to Best Buy for their customer service!

This refrigerator works well, is quiet and keeps my food cold. However, the design is flawed- the shelves on the door are very shallow and do not hold many items. This refrigerator replaced my small 18 cubic ft., freezer on top Maytag. Because of the design flaws, this one couldn't hold nearly as much
food as my smaller one.
