*I truly love this refrigerator.  I purchased a Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator in 1987 & loved the new style! No more constant back breaking bending over to find something! The majority of the time, you are looking for something in the refrigerator, not the freezer.  And for cost efficiency, it made more sense for the freezer to be on the bottom because "warm air rises" concept.  When our old fridge died, we shopped around for the same type replacement. Whirlpool Gold had the best reviews & features! I didn't like the problems they seemed to have on any & all "in the door water & ice dispensers", so I gladly opted for the filtered water inside, which works great for us! We knew the larger size was for us, too! Sometimes we have a lot of leftovers but no room! Now that is NOT a problem.  Since purchasing in May 2010, I have had no regrets or negative interactions to this product. I recommend it to everyone looking for the best refrigerator on the market!*

I have had a small top freezer fridge for all my adult life, so when we upgraded to the French door I was quite excited. I thought, wow, I will finally have tons of space to fit all the food, drinks, and leftovers. I have to say I was very disappointed that such a large fridge is so small inside! I have the hardest time fitting in a gallon of milk, with say a container of lemonade. There is hardly any door space at all for my taller condiments and the shelf spacing is so tight that the condiments don't fit there either! The only thing I do like is the slot for a twelve pack of soda that is in the door. I also like the freezer, which unlike the fridge has sufficient storage. Mine also has an ice maker which is nice, it's a bit loud when it runs but it doesn't run often so that's not a big deal.

Noise Level
Ice maker is a bit loud but you can turn that off at night so you don't have to hear it. The fridge is very quiet, I don't even hear it at all.

Interior Organization
The shelving is too tightly spaced together with no real good way of spacing it to make more room. I can not fit many taller condiments or liquids in this fridge at all.

Temperature Control
Keep it at a four or you will get ice in the back of the fridge.

Ease of Cleaning
Shelves do come out so it's very easy to clean.

Durability
Has held up well to my two kids opening and closing roughly.

Design
I do love the design, it looks very nice in my kitchen, very sleek and shiny.

    This fridge has surpassed my expectations! I thought ibwasnt going to be able to fit much in the freezer but I haven't ran into that problem yet. So much fridge space in the top I have no problem fitting everything I want in it. It doesn't make any noises like my old one and the glass shelves are super easy to keep clean.

    This is a very attractive refrigerator. It is very quiet. While I am in the kitchen I can barely hear it running. The shelves are adjustable and the french doors have enough shelves to hold my items. the inside shelves are easy to clean. The bottom freezer has two pull-out bins and is easily accessible.

    I love this refrigerator so much!

    Comments about Whirlpool Gold French Door Refrigerator GX5FHDXVB:

    This refrigerator is perfect for my family because we use a lot of frozen foods, every dinner and a lot of lunches we make are made from food from our freezer. Not only that but this fridge is ideal when we have power outages as well because it keeps the cold in even if the doors get opened. We once had no power for two days, almost three and with this refrigerator, we didn't lose any food at all. No food spoiled or rotted and the food in the freezer never thawed. This fridge has saved our family a lot of money by just having the space to freeze food for the entire month.

    Noise Level
    The noise level for this fridge is very minimal, next to no noise at all. Unless I put my ear on the side or back of the refrigerator I don't hear anything but a very faint buzzing.

    Interior Organization
    There are many different sized shelves, and so many spaces to store things that for a family of my size we never run out of fridge space.

    Temperature Control
    This fridge has two settings, automatic and manual. I can set each part of the refrigerator to a different setting, I always set the bottom freezer to maximum coldness and it works very well.

    Freezer space is limited due to the ice maker.

    Overall a quiet refrigerator.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Stainless exterior and plastic interior make it an easy refrigerator to keep clean.

    Freezer handle becomes loose after a few months but it is easy to fix. I just have to tighten up the screws every once in a while.

    I have owned this refrigerator for a few months and absolutely love its beautiful design along with its storage capacity.I always have room for everything I buy either it be a big shopping trip or a holiday dinner.The french open doors allow for easy viewing and finding items I am looking for,While the easy pull out freezer provides a lot of versatile ways to store different items while being organized at the same time.I love the sleek modern look of this combo and how it fits into my kitchen.There are so many different ways you can use and organize this. Perfect for a single person or a big family. Family's who make large meals or small meals.The storage space in this refrigerator/ freezer combo has so many possibilities.With the different controls temperature for the drawers you can store fruits and vegetables at a different temperature to remain fresh longer,with the other drawer store lunch meat for extra long freshness.

    Overall, a good refrigerator.

    Comments about Whirlpool Gold French Door Refrigerator GX5FHDXVB:

    My only real complaint is that the freezer doesn't hold much, not for my needs anyway. I cook a lot of meals to freeze and it can be a chore to get everything in sometimes. I can't even keep ice trays in it because there's just no room. My landlord bought the fridge so I didn't have a say but I think I would have chosen a top freezer. I think this is an issue with bottom freezers. The top part holds a lot. It's so quiet that I never hear it running. It's super easy to change the shelf positions and remove them for cleaning. I like the French doors. I wish it had the outside ice/water dispenser. It's a nice looking refrigerator. I haven't had any issues with the moisture control setting for the produce bins or with it running too cold or warm. I think the bottom freezers are good for people who have a separate freezer or don't store a lot of homemade meals or frozen pizzas. But if you are like me and cook a lot of soups & stews to freeze, you might want a top freezer if you don't have a separate freezer to use.

    Comments about Whirlpool Gold French Door Refrigerator GX5FHDXVB:

    It really a good refrigerator i have had. Very much spacious. seperate rooms for everything i have on the fridge. Keeps vegetables fresh and good. Dairy and eggs are quite fresh. Easy to clean and easy to maintain.

    Noise Level
    Noise level from the fridge is quite low when compared to other refrigerators i had before.

    Interior Organization
    Interior organization in the fridge is too good to keep things well organized in it.

    Temperature Control
    Good temperature control in it so that it keeps things inside it very fresh and not too much freezing that would spoil it.

    Ease of Cleaning
    whatever i spill inside the fridge it quite easy to clean up by its quality. just a tissue would do the job.Outside of the fridge too is very easy to clean. i use to clean it occasionally but still it look very clean and bright. looks as good as new even after months of use.

    Durability
    its very durable. stands steady for months without any complaints.

    Design
    the design of the product is too good. the seperate rooms for everything. enough space to keep things organised. freezer section is also too good. quicker and easier to make ice cubes.

    Whirlpool Gold, french door fridge with bottom freezer

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Whirlpool Gold French Door Refrigerator GX5FHDXVB:

    I love this fridge. Very roomy. Looks great. Only downside, bottom freezer is loud to open and close. And the inside water dispenser is loud and hard to press. Some might want to think about every time your child wants a drink of water they are going to open the fridge.

    Noise Level
    Not considering opening and closing the bottom freezer and the water dispenser inside the noise level is otherwise fine.

    Interior Organization
    If I can fit a JUMBO size pizza BOX from Godfather's Pizza inside AND shut the door? that is pretty darn good.

    Ease of Cleaning
    So easy to clean, the shelves and drawers are easily removable, takes me less than a half hour. The outside, stainless steel, is a little more problematic, esp with three kids, but once clean it looks great.

    Design
    I put all my condiments on the doors. Two gallons of milk plus two more gallons of apple cider on the top shelves, a 24 pack of coke and a 12 pack of Mountain Dew on the ONE of the lower shelves, still have empty spaces after filling the the three drawers with veggies, cheeses and meats. When my fridge is full, it still looks clean and has space.
