it is an awesome very usable refrigerator.The ways that you can configure the shelves is very helpful and I love all the drawers that come with it. By having the ice maker in the door I get more usable space within the shelves. I also like having the gallon of milk in the door to free up shelf space.

Noise Level
it is a very quiet product When the ice maker refills you can hardly tell it is on. And while it is running there isn't any hum at all. I like the door open feature also so that you know if the door has been left ajar.

Interior Organization
The spacing in the refrigerator and the freezer is very usable in comparison to the Samsung we previously had. The ice maker in the door saves a lot of shelf space to be used for big items and all the drawer space is good for organizing all your vegetables and fruits and cheeses

Temperature Control
The sliding temperature controls on the drawers are very easy to know what setting to use for the items you are keeping within them. It is also easier to use the controls on the front of the doors help maintain the proper levels.

Ease of Cleaning
It is easy to wipe out the shelves within the refrigerator. The drawers also come out and go back in easily for washing and cleaning them. It is also very easy to keep the front of the doors clean from fingerprints by using a stainless steel wipe that we purchased from the grocery store.

Durability
The doors and interior shelving and drawers holds up very well to my grandkids opening and closing the doors and drawers for their snacks. it also is very well constructed and able to hold all the items we keep in the doors and drawers and shelves.

Design
The stainless steel front is very attractive and fits in our kitchen with the other appliances and my counter tops.The handles are very nice in appearance and the layout of the drawers and shelves work well together to hold many items of varying sizes and shapes. We love the long drawer that can hold large platters and pizza boxes without takingup too much space

After needing to replace an aging refrigerator, I decided to go with a more modern design, featuring the freezer on the bottom and side by side doors. It didn't take no time at all until I regretted my decision. The bottom freezer is nice, and more efficient, but the side by side doors are a problem. It's supposed to save energy by allowing you to open only door while keeping things cool on the other side. The problem is, though, everyone, myself included still opens both doors at once, usually. You just don't have enough space with one door open to put in or take out any large items (pizza box, large pots & pans, etc)

Noise Level
Only noisy when the ice machine is filling up with water or dropping ice down.

Interior Organization
Even though there is more cubic feet of space in this model compared to my older one, it simply does not hold as much. I've tried different configurations of the shelves, but nothing seems to give me a comparable amount of storage space as my old model.

Temperature Control
Unit initially cooled very quickly. No problems with the temp.

Ease of Cleaning
No better or worse than other models, I suppose.

Durability
I haven't owned it long enough to say how it will last in the long run, but so far it's holding up pretty well.

Design
With more cubic feet that my last refrigerator, you'd think there would be more room, but there definitely isn't. There's more room in the freezer part, but less in the main part.

    Comments about Whirlpool French Door Refrigerator:

    I flip houses and re do houses as a sort of part time job, we recently had a huge kitchen remodel to do and needed a kitchen on a larger size to work in the new kitchen.

    I looked at several different fridges before coming across this Whirlpool French Door Refrigerator. Not only is it plenty big enough for the kitchen that I purchased it for, it is actually pretty pleasing to the eye. The stainless steel matches everything else in the kitchen beautifully and a added bonus is that it is very easy to clean. Sometimes stainless can show dirt or scratchrs pretty badly, but that wasn't the case with this fridge. It's in a kitchen where it is used pretty heavily and it still looks just as clean and shiny as it did when I first purchased it.

    The fridge and freezer maintain temperature really well, all the time. I also love the amount of storage that it offers. Plenty of room for all kinds of different sized things. Tall and short and everything in between.

    I would definitely recommend this to a larger family, someone with a large kitchen or a business that needs a large fridge for lots of storage space.

          I love it! If you are looking for a roomy refrigerator this Is it. I enjoy how everything fits perfect. The layout is pefect as well. And if you have small kids you can lock the water and ice. I find that locking it is a wonderful idea when cleaning it.
          I would recommend refrigerator to anyone. I love it as well as my family.

              We have had the refrigerator for 2.5 years. I loved the design and layout. However, the ice maker has died. I thought I was purchasing a quality appliance and am unhappy that It didn't even last three years before we had a problem.

              Comments about Whirlpool French Door Refrigerator:

              When I first purchased this fridge I got it in one store for a good price. Then when by chance went by another store saw the same fridge and it was 5oo.00 cheaper than the one I just purchased. So quickly I called to see if I could cancel the first one, yes, I could so I purchased the second one. On the way to my home and the store it was dropped and the freezer door was bent and the freezer froze everything that was not to be frozen such as the door on the freezer it was froze closed. I tried to have it replaced and they were going to replace the fridge then the store got a new manager she decided to have it repaired. I wasn't happy because I purchased a new fridge undamaged and that's what I wanted. She send a repairmen from a company that did not regularly do their work. He was a cute man he came in the door announcing I'm here to fix not to repair. And that's actually what he did he fixed it and we've not had any more trouble with it. All and all it turned out o.k. I did save 500.00 and got to see a repairman know his business and let you know he knew it and proved it . No one had been able to figure out what was wrong with the fridge when I showed the repairman he said I'll make it new again, he did.

              Comments about Whirlpool French Door Refrigerator:

              We bought this appliance because we liked the attractive look that it had on the outside and it seemed to be the style that was most popular. We went from a side by side refrigerator.
              I could tell immediatly that this fridge did not have enough useable space. I feel that it is much smaller than my other unit, not by actually size, but by the way the shelves are set up. I tried moving the shelves in different, more usable positions, but I still feel like I am lacking so much room. The storage on the inside of the doors is much smaller, and due to the ice maker taking up a large amount of space inside the fridge, the shelves in the door are useless.
              The ice maker is always getting ice stuck as it is suppose to be dispensing ice, and once you can break it free, a ton of ice comes pouring out. The water filter does not last very long before the lights start flashing that you need to change it. The filters are not cheap, and having to replace every 45 days or so can get expensive.
              The fridge is beautiful on the outside, but not very user friendly for someone that likes to cook and store food.

              I recently purchased this amazing fridge and I must say I am really impressed with its performance. lots of storage inside and handles are quite sturdy as well. The ice maker unfortunately is quite loud making the fridge noisy.

              The fridge looks good and has lots of storage to store all my foods. It is built with stainless steel making it quite strong and durable. Just hope that the ice maker could have been a little bit better.

              Just remove the shelves and other interior parts of the fridge and you can easily clean the fridge.
              Durability
              The fridge is made with stainless steel that makes it extremely strong and durable. Till now, it works absolutely fine without many issues. It should last for at least 5-6 years if not more.
