Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Love it! Love it! This is an awesome refrigerator! It is professional looking and works great! I have had no trouble with it, which is what I expect from my appliances. I like that I can put in a couple of 9x13 pans and still have room for gallons of milk and all the other stuff that a fridge is supposed to hold. I love the additional drawer of refrigeration. That is where I put the kids snacks to keep them out of the rest of the fridge. The shelves on the left door (by the ice maker) are very narrow. I haven't found much that fits well there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats my $9000 Sub Zero Great design with blue glow warm screen with bright easy to read display. The little details and thought will put a smile on your face As you open the doors the interior lighting is great it invites you to look inside and discover a very large and managable interior with easy to configure and clean shelves The quality is top notch it will have you wondering how it makes ice and chills water with barely a sound energy star rated and a fit and finish to make you proud Highly recomended Well done whirlpool

Rated 4 out of 5 by from whirlpool gold french door fridge i LOVE the look of the fridge...the freezer is excellent and fits a large amount, the fridge itself is a great design and we can fit a lot in it...However i LOATHE the ice doesnt matter what cup, glass, sippy cup etc i put under it, I end up with ice all over the floor when I try and get is seriously bad. So bad that my 3 and 1 yo children come running when they hear me use it as they KNOW that they need to pick up ice off the floor and throw it in the dogs water bowl...It is literally the worst ice dispenser i have ever .....EVER...... used!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped Working After 5 Weeks!! My refrigerator stopped working after 5 weeks; control panel is being replaced (control panel stopped telling the compressor to come back on). The shelves on the left door are very small and the only thing I have found to put in the top shelf is "take out" ketchup packs. The ice maker is very noisy - you can hear it two rooms away. I have a Whirlpool dishwasher and oven, but I am definitely disappointed in this refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from looks great! love the way this fits into my remodeled kitchen. and the appetizer drawers are great for party prepping (now I need to host a party!) the ice and water in the door has been used every day for the last month, very happy to have that option. cannot say enough, lets see how this holds up in the coming years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid refrigerator that does the job well PROS: * water filter is up and out of the way, some fridges have filters that take up shelf space and can't be removed without pulling food out. This filter is easy to get to. * consistent temperature. * very quiet during regular operation. * alarm when door left open too long. * great looking fridge. CONS: * cannot access deli drawer without both door open. * ice machine function can get noisy. * lower freezer basket can block upper freezer shelf if items piled too high. * could use a little bit more space for milk/juice cartons. * french door gap fill can sometimes not close all the way if casually closed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with purchase. Moved into a rental and needed to provide a refigerator. Went to the appliance store and settled on the Whirlpool Gold, French door model. Unlike other refigerators this does not leak, the dispenser works correctly, and the ice makers makes plenty of ice. The unit runs quietly; the only noise is when the ice cubes dump into the bin and the water runs to refill the ice maker. The unit is so quiet the first few times the ice dumped the noise seemed loud, but now just a brief noice. Love the wide shelves in the French Door model, the storage drawers are deep enough to hold containers of lettuce, and the addjustable bottom door allows you to make it suit your own needs. Great purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice and Quiet. Great temperature control, but not as roomy as expected... Great refrigerator, but not as roomy as one would expect. My old fridge was also a Whirpool, side by side, same cu. ft., but I feel I was able to get more things inside. Even though the french doors make for more space left to right, you really do not have that much space top to bottom, specially for things like Wine bottles, or Juice jugs. There is room for two gallon jugs on the door, but if you adjust the shelves to fit a Gallon or something narrower, but as tall as Gallon jug, you are left with not much room for anything else above or below... Same thing with the freezer. I am also disappointed that the top basket on the freezer does not slide out when you open the freezer. If you did not know it was there, you would miss it completely. The unit is quiet and more energy efficient, but overall, I am not sure I would recommend buying this particular model, particularly if you buy often at big box stores (unless you have a separate freezer to hold the overstock).
