Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by montanalocavore Purchased this fridge one month ago to replace 14 year old Kenmore with dying compressor. There are limited choices in the 30" width anymore, and this Amana seemed to come out on top in spite of complaints about Whirlpool bottom freezer configurations. We chose the Amana because it has wire baskets in the freezer instead of what seemed like flimsier plastic.
So far we are very happy with the fridge. The freezer on the bottom is convenient for the grownups in the house, although our first-grader has trouble reaching up into it. The stainless doors are MUCH easier to keep clean than the old pebbled finish of the Kenmore.
We had wanted one of the layouts with the full-width meat drawer on the bottom so thawing meat wouldn't drip on things below. We have chosen to use one of the lower veggie drawers for meat, and that works fine.
We hope it will hold up in terms of long term reliability.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Freakendandy When first plugged this in it wined like a piggy. Wife said take it back! Well, we ended up keeping it because after we loaded with food and allowed it to charge up (get cold) for a week the noise lessened... Door compartments are a bad design. With the rounded corners you can's fit near as much in as in our 16yr old Amana which had (IMHO) at least 20% more space than this identically sized fridge by Amana. Crispper drawers keep falling out because there is no drawer stops like our older Amana. Overall, nice fit/cost trade-off for our small kitchen and the door handles don't have that trophy/shrine look like the Maytags.
Btw--if you do decide to buy you will need to contact Whirlpool and have them send you 3-each, part WP67001130 which are plugs for the L/R hinge mount holes. Took half-day on phone to train up Whirlpool customer care person on why there are blank holes in the front where the door hinge mounts depending on whether you mount L/R and why there were not 'white' plugs included with the fridge like noted on page-4 of Whirlpools user install manual. Anyway, they finally my point and sent me 2-each plugs to cover the 3-holes in the front - ahh, beam me up Scotty. You may just want to go to TrueValue and pick some up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa Great fridge!
love it! Ordered this for my mom to replace her 30 year old fridge. That thing was in sad shape and we were being charged big time for it's sucking up electricity. It's too soon to tell about that savings yet, we just got it two weeks ago. but she loves it. I wish I could get one to be honest, her's is so much better than mine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MusicMama Refrigerator easy to reach
I am very pleased with this because now I don't have to stand on my head to get the veggies and fruit. Only one issue for me - there is a scratch on the side that is not large but deep.
I like the quietness of the refrigerator.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mtntop Somewhat disappointed
We bought an LG 3 months ago we liked certain features, mostly that it was quiet. It was a little large for the space and so deep that it was a pain to get to the items from the back of the shelves and we don't like top freezer style. So we sold it and bought the same Amana model that we had previously.
This is a small bottom freezer fridge, with flexible shelving configurations.Those are the main features we like about it. What I am very disappointed about is that they haven't improved it's noise level from the one we bought 16 years ago. This one may even be more noisy, it rumbles and buzzes. After experiencing the quiet of the LG this Amana is very annoying. To add insult to injury the LG cost less. For that reason I don't think I'd recommend it unless someone specifically needs the unique size and bottom freezer configuration of this fridge. We've only had it for 2 weeks now so I wouldn't know it's efficiency or durability yet.

Although I just bought my Amana, I LOVE IT! I love the design and it's much easier than the traditional top freezer design. I did research and compared Amana with Whirlpool and found them pretty equal but Amana slightly more reliable and a better repair record.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Storm315 I love it!
I purchased my refrigerator in May and have waited to review it after using it for awhile. I love the bottom freezer, so easy on my back. I would definitely give this refrigerator 5 stars except that the drawers are definitely smaller than my old refrigerator and I can't get everything in them. Also I found the door shelves are smaller, too. I find that the large flat area at the bottom of the refrigerator section is great for temporarily sitting items when I have to re-arrange or get something from the back of a shelf. I did adjust the freezer to a colder number and my ice cream and cubes are perfect. It's easy to find items in the freezer as well.

This is my first top refrigerator. Bottom freezer. I live it. There is more room than expected. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
