      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.

      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.

      Excellent Fridge Space, two FYI items

      I love the look and function of this product. The fridge has tons of space and for my tall husband he appreciates not having to duck or compromise space with a side by side. All that said, I have two small FYIs about this appliance: 1) The fruit and vegetable drawers each have a knob to adjust the humidity in the drawers. They are thin plastic pieces that stick out and are consistently getting stuck on the drawer unless you are very careful when you push it in. I'm unsure as to why you wouldn't just have a wheel instead since I can only assume this will break off in short order. A minor issue but a true design flaw for normal use. (Pic attached) 2) I wish the freezer drawer clicked or had an indicator light if it wasn't fully closed. Within the first week ours was left just the tiniest bit open over night and everything started to defrost. I feel like there should have been something in the design to help it close fully, consistently. We are more conscious of it now so we don't make that same mistake again and have had no problems since.

      Great fridge

      After 35 years, it was time to upgrade my old refrigerator which needed some repairs but would have been more costly than practical. I researched different options online and decided that Whirlpool seemed to be the best option for my needs. I was particularly looking for a bottom freezer since arthritis has taken it's toll and it was difficult to stand for long going through a top freezer. I went up a size having had a 20 cubic foot refrigerator and either had to go down to 18 or go up to 22 for what I wanted. Fortunately, I found this one at 21 cubic feet and it added just 2 extra inches which was fine for where I use it (it's free standing, not encased in cabinets). I love the size, and love the bottom freezer. It is so convenient to use. When I looked at some freezers they used solid trays but this one has basket type trays. I think I would prefer the solid trays because of the fact that it would be easier to clean, whereas things drop through the baskets and I think it will be more difficult to clean. I did line the baskets with freezer paper to help prevent some of this. That is the only thing I have a concern with. I love the LED lights, so much nicer and brighter, and love the controls in the front of the refrigerator, so much easier to control and adjust. All in all I am very pleased with the crispers with their own humidity controls also. I would highly recommend this refrigerator to anyone.

      Excellent usability with bottom freezer unit

      We got the WRB322DMBM stainless steel version delivered/installed in early December. The unit fits our limited width 33" space just great. We'd had a WP side by side for 14 years and this bottom freezer model is much better for space utilization: the refrigerator top measures only 1 cu ft more but is much more flexible to use than the narrow side by side and while the freezer is actually 1 cu ft smaller it is better setup with two large baskets and ice maker. This unit is essentially a French Door model w/o the 2 doors so if you have the swing space it's about $600 less just needing one large door vs two. Some non-WP units do have an interior water dispenser however we never used that as much as the ice maker on our side by side and while it's not as convenient to scoop the ice from the bucket it's not a deal breaker. I would have rated this unit a B vs the deluxe WP range we got but after using it over a month it's a sold B+ for our needs. Reliability is TBD, but the only problem we had in 14 years on our old WP was replacing the ice maker. Oh yeah, the plastic veggie and fruit doors appear to be the same low quality parts, but any moderately priced 'fridge up through a $3k Kitchen aid has the same junky drawers and door shelves, so be ready to spend $$ if you keep your 'fridge 10 or more years.

      Bright, spacious, easy

      This refrigerator is only maybe an inch deeper and an inch taller than my last fridge, but feels enormous on the inside by comparison. Very well designed, enough adjustable shelves to suit whatever your needs are. The bottom freezer is super convenient as the baskets slide fully out of the freezer and let you have a look at what's in the way back without crouching or bending over. Likewise having the fridge on top put me at just the right height to easily see all the way to the back of every shelf in the fridge without crouching or craning. A few reviewers have complained about the noise but I've had mine a few weeks and although I'm sure it makes noise I can't say it's ever been loud enough that I noticed it, and I spend all my time in the room my kitchen opens into. My previous old dying fridge made a sound like a dryer buzzer going off about once every 15-20 minutes, so as far as I'm concerned I've been in blissful silence since then. The only negative thing I can say about the fridge is that it's commercial-grade stainless steel rather than spotless stainless. That is reflected in the price, as spotless would be more expensive, so I didn't deduct any stars for it, but if it's important to you be aware that the surface of the fridge gets smudged and fingerprinted easily and gets streaky if not cleaned the proper way.

      I bought this refrigerator for great price. It worked great for first two weeks. Later we had issues with bottom freezer. Even on the lowest cold setting freezer compartment turned into polar ice cap and had to unplug the refrigerator and wait for few hours to operate the freezer door. Best buy customer service was terrible. If you don't buy geek squad extended warranty through best buy they don't care to address appliance issues. When we called 1-888-best buy they asked us to call the store for help and store manager (Garrett, Laurel, MD)stated that our best bet is 1-888 best buy after the purchase because corporate takes care of the service not local store and we were stuck in the middle. It took me 5 days to talk to right representative. This is WORST BUYing experience.

      The last refrigerator I bought from BB was less than two years ago. It turned out to be a lemon. It quit cooling(the refrigerator part, not the freezer and, it was very noisy) a year and a half after I had it. The warranty was 1 year. It was a Samsung. It was much fancier and it cost a few hundred less than this one did on sale. This Whirlpool is not as fancy, but its like night and day difference in performance, in every way . Much quieter, twice as roomy, and it keeps everything super cold set two settings lower(toward the end I had to run the Samsung on it's highest setting just to keep things slightly cool) than the other one! Samsung needs to stick with cell phones and TV's. So if you're looking for a great refrigerator at a great price(if its still on sale), this whirlpool model(and they been making appliances, and ONLY appliances, forever) is rockin.
