              We've had this unit for about two months and at this point we are not happy with it. This model has a variety of noises, but one in particular has a high-pitch whine & is very loud and last a long time. The in-door ice maker has two issues: The first is when you have a full ice basket, the cubes form a solid mass so that when you choose the cube function all you get is shaved or crushed ice - you need to remove the ice bin & break apart the ice mass so you can dispense cubes. To minimize this happening, we make no more than one-half bin of ice by shutting off the ice maker. Shutting off the ice maker is very inconvenient as the on-off switch is small & not easily accessable.There is always water on the freezer drawer gasket. If I could return it I would.

                    I booought my refrigerator in July and I am very happy with it. The only issue that bothers me is the small size of the ice storage bin, I frequently run out of ice on very warm days. I can empty the bin into a bag to place in freezer and have additional ice on hand if I remember to do so in advance but that doesn't always happen. I especially like the "4th drawer space" just below main refrigerator before freezer. I like how easy it is to use for smaller items that otherwise would be buried in the baack of my refrigerator.

                          Well I am going on my 6 month with the refrigerator and now the 3rd repair and looking like the 4th since now the ice maker will not even fill up in a 10 hour period with fast ice on. It is so sad since the layout of the refridge is nice and wanted to buy USA made but that has bitten us. I wish we had gone with Samsung had one 3 yrs and no trouble what so ever. I guess shame on us since Whirlpool will not admit we got a lemon. Thank goodness we got the extended warranty since the repairman is on a first name basis.

                                      If I could marry this refrigerator I would!!! Besides being such a beautiful kitchen appliance, it is extremely functional. My absolute favorite feature is the middle drawer for the everyday necessities. The freezer space is never ending. The only downside to the fridge is I end up buying more groceries to fill it.

                                            I bought this refrigerator in February. I love the space, the bottom freezer and the drawer. The layout is very convenient. However, the indoor water and ice is not sufficient. It does not provide 8 oz of water when we use the measured fill.

                                                  I simply cannot stop admiring this refrigerator and consider it one of the single most important purchasing decisions we have ever made. It is not only gorgeous in appearance, but superbly crafted and highly functional. I am unable to fill it and the number of ways you can configure the interior are endless. The ice maker, while much smaller than what we were used to, is perfect for our family. No longer do we have this bulky, noisy contraption that provided gigantic cubes of cloudy ice that usually stuck together and clogged up the dispenser because we simply could not use it fast enough. This unit provides smaller, completely clear pieces of ice and the perfect amount so that you use it quickly, and it recycles quickly thereby keeping it fresh.
                                                  Couldn't be happier with the multiple freezer compartments / drawers and the fact that it is bigger overall, yet still fits within the same footprint of my less than exceptional 15 year old model.

                                                        We've only had the fridge a month. So far it's been great. Every feature has worked as stated. We love the refrigerator drawer because we can put what our Grandchildren are allowed to eat or drink in there and they can help themselves.

                                                              Have owned an appliance repair and parts business for over 30 years. When we started looking for a frig, I research what I liked & did not, ask customers, too. Finally decided on this one, read lots of reviews, good & bad. Would buy this one again, and I have had it almost a year. Wonderful frig, lot of storage, very workable for me. Does make funny noises, but we can live with some humor in our life!
