        First refrigerator did not cool, replaced with another one. This refrigerator working fine. Luckily old refrigerator was in garage waiting to be recycled. Not very convenient going up and down stairs to get to fridge.

              We bought this refrigerator to replace our 12 year old Amana. The modern technology was immediately apparent with the easy to access electronic controls which bring the temperatures to pre-set quickly
              The shelves and drawers are top notch quality.
              My only suggestion for improvement would be to use fans that don't emit a noticeably high pitch hum as these do.

                    I believe this refrigerator will serve us well for many years. However, I was surprised after delivery to find that the door is not reversible; I would have preferred a left-hinged door. This problem is not one that detracts badly from the utility of the product. Recommend being very-up-front about non-reversibility of door in advertising.

                          This is my first kitchen aid refrigerator. I chose this model because the ice maker was optional, and was a feature that I didn't need. Also I have always purchased Kitchen Aid dish washers,because of the quality. Also own the stand mixer, and toaster.

                                We're happy with the overall space, the brightness from the centrally located light, the drawers help us keep very organized. We're still getting used to the freezer under the fridge. One suggestion for the freezer is to add a shelf for the ice trays (our model does not have a shelf). Also, include ice trays with the fridge.

                                            I bought this to replace my 13 year old GE Profile top freezer fridge since the refrigerator no longer worked. This bottom freezer model is great. The LED lights inside are bright, the glass shelves seem adequate. The top door takes a bit of force to open, and the freezer drawer too. But, overall I like the design and don't have to deal with an ice maker, which was a pain, costly repairs etc. Just usecube trays. It fits perfectly into the space.

                                                        We purchased this refrigerator a month ago. While it keeps things cold, and there is plenty of storage, including door racks, there are 3 major disappointments.
                                                        1. When the refrigerator compressor comes on, it emits a LOUD, high-pitched whistle that screams for 5 or more minutes. It is loud enough to be heard in the farthest depths of our second floor bedroom. VERY annoying. I went on line to see if there was a fix, but people have said that Whirlpool sends someone out to replace the motherboard, and the noise persists. My husband, who did heating and a/c years ago said it is in the compressor. I'm ready to return it and get a GE or other brand.
                                                        2. Other disappointment: ice maker not standard. Come on - for the money I paid, surely an ice maker could have been included.
                                                        3. In our old Whirlpool (had to get rid of it after 3.5 years), too many repairs, and it finally started freezing and leaking, at least the shelves slid forward so us short people could reach items in the back.

                                                              I've only had this refrigerator for a few weeks, but, so far, I'm happy with it. It's great to have the fridge on top at eye level where you can see all the food items that usually get pushed out of sight. The drawers are a little flimsy, but I found that in all the refrigerators I looked at, it's just today's standard.
