Whirlpool french door bottom freezer refrigerator

My husband and I bought this refrigerator one year ago and love it! I have 3 children and the older ones can easily get their own ice and food out of the bottom freezer which makes life easier for me. With the french doors you have plenty of room on the inside of the refrigerator for large food items.....like a turkey, cake, you name it! With a family of five I needed a refrigerator with plenty of storage and this one definitely has it!

2004 identical model, compressor now dead-Kenmore 596.75504400

I bought an identical model of this refrigerator back in June 2004. It was our first one-- last was a 34 yr old model that was both scary and faithful.

Last month- June 2011-- the compressor start capacitor went out, so I replaced it. This past week- July- the same noise started again, and now I'm told by the service tech that the compressor itself is dying, and may have another week left.

Needless to say, I am confused and seriously irritated. How in the world could old technology make a refrigerator that could last 34 years, and new technology can't make one that will last 7 years?

I was so excited when we got this thing I couldn't contain myself. Now.... I really wish I could get a replacement that'd last....

Thank you sears for making a fancy pile of .....

Do us all a favor-- make refrigerators that will last. This is ridiculous. You charge $1200-$2600 and they die way too young.

piece of junk

Bought this 1 1/2 years ago. Just had a $232 service call so the repairman could unclog the drain tube that everyone else is complaining about. It's obviously a lousy design. A reputable company would do something to correct the design for existing users without charging them $232 for a fix that may not last very long. At the very least, they could put some instructions on their useless web page on how to fix it.

Left door doesn't close with normal force. Puddle of water ruins floors

Water runs on the floor from build up in the freezer compartment. Looks like a lot of people have the same problem. I will never buy anything from this company ever again. With the help of YouTube, I fixed it, but you shouldn't have too. What happens is the drain hole in the freezer in the unit gets plugged with ice and when it auto-defrosts the water has nowhere to go expect through your door on to your floor. You have to clear it and put maybe a zip-tie in there so you can manually clear it from inside if it happens again.

Quite a revelation

Never had a refrigerator with this configuration before, and wish now we always had. Having the double door top allows us to put wide canape trays, etc. in the fridge with no problem - same with frozen tray items down below. Filter very easy to access.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A winner ...

Very pleased with the sleek style. To have a water dispenser feature inside the unit is great...it does not chop up the front outside door of the unit. Enjoying my Whirlpool kitchen.

Love the features!

We purchased our Whirlpool Gold refrigerator last spring prior to a complete kitchen renovation. Friends have the same unit so we knew we were purchasing a quality product. We wanted a French door refrigerator with freezer on the bottom, but didn't want precious inside storage space lost to water and ice in the door. This model is PERFECT! Cold water dispenses easily by pushing a button on the left inside wall, and the ice dispenser is located on the top shelf of the freezer. Both work extremely well. The refrigerator and freezer are both spacious with adjustable shelves in the fridge area. This model also has a shallow drawer at the bottom of the refrigerator for cold cuts, cheeses or platters. The stainless steel outside is stylish and easy to clean. Handles are very sturdy. The seal is tight. Our only 'complaint' if you will is that both doors must be open in order to access the vegetable drawer on the right as the seal on the left door slightly overlaps the left edge of the drawer. We love our Whirlpool Gold refrigerator and recommend it without reservation.

Good refrigator overall, but too loud

I really like this refrigerator, especially the water dispenser on the side of the left wall. The only not so good things are that it make too much noise and the right side door pops and stays open when you close the left side door. I am always double checking and most of the time the right side door is not closed and sealed.

Some flaws

It is an ok model. The handle comes off of the freezer quite often. The long meat/cheese drawer is flimsy and hard to close.

Good Features

I first bought this fridge and had no problems for about 9 months. Then the compressor started acting flaky. After they changed the compressor, it worked fine for another month or so, and then stopped working again. After they replaced the entire fridge, everything has been working fine now for the past 6 months. I lost a bunch of food though...twice. I also had to deal with the service company many times and had to wait several days to over 1 week for an emergency service appointment. Compared to other fridges with a similar setup, the water dispenser and ice maker are fairly loud, but I've gotten used to it. The double doors are nice and this fridge is very large. I do like the interior water dispenser feature - this was hard to find on many fridges. The white finish is really nice, it's smooth painted metal like a car - it doesn't really need to be cleaned often (unlike stainless finish).

Everything is easy to see and assessable.

We love this refrigerator! Everything is easy to see and very assessable. I don't have to search for things like we did with our old side by side. Even the freezer is very user friendly and assessable. I love keeping our milk and drinks in the door. This frees up a lot of space for other things on the shelves. I also love the filtered water and ice maker. The filtered ice helps to make our drinks taste so much better. Overall, this is a great refrigerator! Thanks Whirlpool!

Perfect fridge

We love this fridge. Great looking, tons of space, hidden water dispenser. The only thing I'd change is to make the interior water dispenser easier to access. The button is a bit awkward to press whilst filling a glass. I would love a one-handed mechanism.

This fridge does a good job.

A good product with a few very aggravating features. 1. The full width lower drawers cannot be opened without opening both sides of unit. Why not make them the width of the doors so they can be opened individually? 2. The chilled water feature needs to be a one handed operation rather than requiring both hands. Should be easy if the button to turn the water on was below the spout instead of above.

Nice fridge but need more room

We thought this fridge would be more than enough room for us, somehow we manage to Fill it up. I feel as if the inside could be better designed. The freezer is actually quite small too. This fridge works for te two of us but I would definitely get a bigger one if we had a couple kids. Also, I noticed the fridge is getting small rust specs on it.

This fridge is perfect for family. I always have plenty of room for groceries, leftovers, etc... It isn't fully of fancy innovations, but doesn't need to be. I also love having the freezer on the bottom. You can see everything and can get to it quickly.

Love the openness and versatility of the shelves.

The door spaces are a bit cramped and for some reason the crisper drawers don't always stay tightly closed but I love the openeness and ease of finding what I want in my fridge. I would recommend this product and have already, my sister bought one too! Ice maker is a bit noisy.

Very spacious

Very spacious, well built refrigerator. We chose to have the filtered water inside as we have small children that would fill and dump cups from an outer dispenser. The ice maker is rather loud when it refills and we don't drink soda so the can dispenser isn't used for it's original purpose. I have neen incredibly pleased with this purchase all things considered.

Great frig - except for the noise!

My family of 4 four loves this frig. We replaced a side by side model and are totally pleased, except for the sound the motor makes. It is a bit loud, especially first thing in the morning when the rest of the house is quiet.

Excellent performance, but...

Excellent performance, but we have a few things that need to be redesigned. The lower pantry drawer has a movable devider that does not secure to the drawer properly. I have tried dozens of times to position it in place and lock down the rotating end to no avail. All the drawers do not seal properly because, even though the refrigerator is perfectly level, they keep falling forward on their tracks instead of in the fully closed position, therefore the humidity controls on veggie drawer, fruit drawer, etc. are completely useless.
