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.
