    Refrigerator is adequate

    We had a Whirlpool refrigerator for almost 29 years before it finally gave out. We decided to replace it with another Whirlpool model, this time with the freezer on the bottom. Unfortunately Whirlpool has changed the dimensions of its refrigerators such that the one we wanted with a 21.9 cu.ft. capacity does not fit in the space we have, so we had to settle for the smaller 18.7 cu.ft. model, which is slightly smaller than our old refrigerator. We chose the stainless steel color mainly because white and black were the only other choices. As we were warned from other reviews, the stainless steel finish does show fingerprints very markedly. At first we were horrified by the amount of noise the refrigerator made, but it turned out that the installation team (contracted by Best Buy) forgot to turn off the automatic ice maker when they installed the refrigerator. I eventually realized what the problem was, so turned off the ice maker, and now the noise level of the refrigerator is fine. On the plus side, the refrigerator does keep our food properly cold, both in the refrigerator and freezer sections. Also we like the bottom freezer and top refrigerator, especially the clear shelves and drawers which allow one to see easily what is in the refrigerator. The adjustability of the shelves is good, including the shelves in the door. The biggest problem is that both the refrigerator and freezer don't utilize space very well, so that the capacity of this model is quite a bit less than our old one, which was only 0.5 cu. ft. larger based on manufacturer specifications. Finally, the biggest problem we are worried about is the durability, which we have no way to know at the present time. The salesperson said we should expect a lifetime for the unit of only 7 years or so. I hope that is not true, but if it is, it will show that this refrigerator is vastly inferior to what was manufactured 30 years ago.

    I am thrilled with the shelves on the doors because they are solid, so nothing falls out through the bottom like our previous refrigerator. Seriously, who designs a shelf that condiment bottles can slip through! We lost a little space, mostly freezer, going from a top freezer model, but I am so much happier. I don't have the problem of the freezer not closing all the way and not knowing it, the drawer always closes firmly. I have two complaints. The two drawers at the bottom of the refrigerated part have levers to change the humidity. They stick out just so, so that every time you close a drawer, it gets hung up on the lever. The lever is not that thick, so I know it will break in the very near future. My other complaint is the ice maker keeps getting ice stuck in it, so no ice gets made. I am an ice fiend, so this is unacceptable. I will be calling customer service as soon as I have time for that. I'm hoping there is a fix. In general, the only fault I find with Whirlpool is that their warranties are only one year.

    Excellent Refrigerator

    I purchased this refrigerator in December to replace a whirlpool side-by-side that was purchased in 1995. It was too large for the space in my home and needed to be replaced because it was putting pressure on the cabinets. Anyway....this refrigerator met the size requirements of the space. The refrigerator has plenty of shelves, maybe too many! I love the single door design on top vs french door. The freezer is a bit small if you keep a lot of frozen items. But it's deep enough you can arrange smartly and should be okay. The ice maker works well. Some people complain that the refrigerator is louder than their previous model. I did notice that it is slightly noisier than the model it replaced. It really isn't enough to cause issues and after about two days I adjusted to the new sound. Overall, this was a great purchase, installation was a breeze, and I'm very happy with the quality of the product.

    Overall, very happy with the fridge. I think we lost some space in the fridge compartment with the bottom freezer, but it just takes some organization skills. We were limited in how big of a fridge we could purchase because of the space available in our kitchen. The fridge looks really nice. I read the reviews of the loud ice maker noise and I noticed that at first, but its intermittent and I don't find it bothersome. The compartments on the door are nice, deep and hold a lot. The shelves inside seem sturdy. One minor thing: be careful when closing the crisper drawers on the bottom, the little tab that adjusts the humidity level seems like it could break off if you are too rough with closing the drawers. In my experience with Whirlpool from another appliance, the little parts can be costly to replace. I am happy with the purchase.

    Smaller refrig. bigger price

    The opening in my countertop only allowed me to buy this size of refrig. Didn't want the water/ice on the door anyway, just more to go # This refrig. is very good and the lighting inside is very nice.; The freezer of the bottom is a plus because now I don't have to get on my knees to get out my last beer or find my last green pepper. The larger refrig. of the same style was 250dollars cheaper. This turned into a special order oh well it fit and that's all that mattered. Searched out the best price in town and Best Buy matched it and del. it for free. Gave the boys a nice tip cause they didn't damage anything when they carried it inside. Good job on a extremely hot day.

    I bought this refrigerator because I wanted a bottom freezer on it and because it was energy star rated and also because Whirlpool is a good brand appliance. So far I am thrilled with it! It isn't much bigger than what I had before but still seems to have more room. The comparison information I had for this one and two others were similar but this one did not say it had a couple of features that the others did but when I got it set up and was able to start putting stuff in, these features were actually in it so it was like a bonus for me! I also love that the freezer has a light in it! Love it!

    We are only about 2 weeks into having this fridge but so far we love it. It is beautiful and our first time having the freezer on the bottom. We were a little leery if it really would be roomier but it is. If there was an option to not have the ice maker included if you don't have a water hook up that would be perfect but even so it has plenty of space for our 2 adult 4 dog household. It keeps everything nice and cold and the movable door shelves come in handy for all those random sized condiments and odds and ends. The delivery was a breeze. They were kind, courteous and quick. Removing our old fridge and bringing in the new without any problems. So far we are very pleased.

    Do not purchase this refrigerator

    This unit is so loud it wakes us up in the middle of the night. We lost 2 gallons of milk in the first week of owning this refrigerator. Called whirlpool and they sent out a repairman who took one look and stated "I see this a lot in this unit" :(. He changed out the pump that brings cold air from the freezer to the frig. It has been three weeks and the unit still does not get lower than 40 degrees. My husband called Whirlpool customer service again and was told they would NOT replace the unit but would send someone out again tomorrow... our next step is to call Best Buy and see if they will replace it. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.
