I needed something that would fit the smaller space in my 1968 home and wanted a side by side with water and ice dispenser. Though I was partial to Whirlpool since all my other appliances are the same brand including the 19 year old fridge I was replacing, I had researched several other brands to see what they offered. After comparing many, I wound up coming back to Whirlpool and almost bought the Whirlpool WRS322FDA. I went and saw one at my local Sears and found I didn't like the mechanical buttons for the control panel and how the upper portion of the freezer was used up by the icemaker which reduced the amount of storage space in the freezer. I looked some more and found this WRS342FIAB. I called Whirlpool to ask if the control panel was electronic or mechanical. They informed me it was indeed electronic. I began researching some more and noticed that compared to the WRS322FDA, this fridge had cold water that dispenses, and a bit more room in the freezer since it had the in the door removable ice bin. I decided to buy it sight unseen and give it a shot. Once I received the fridge, I was very pleased with it. So far it has done well and we enjoy it.The features I like most about this fridge are the electronic control panel, LED interior lighting that fades on, removable ice bin and the extra space in the freezer towards the top where most ice makers take up the room. Though the description or pictures don't show it, mine came with a handy can rack in the fridge door. This was a nice bonus and I use it for those 16.9 oz water bottles that the kids can grab on the go. They fit perfectly. I also like the light that illuminates the dispenser area. Initially I thought you would need to turn the light on each time you wanted to use it (in the dark) and then turn it back off. You can do that, but to my surprise, I found the light comes on automatically as soon as the paddle is depressed with your cup.Great fridge and well worth the extra money for the additional features you get over the WRS322FDA."

I like the looks of the unit. But..the panel for the ice and water dispensers is difficult to see in the daytime; the water dispenses very slowly. The ice tends to drop a cube after you walk away. Frost continues to build up on the side of the bin for ice. The freezer door shelves hold very little.The fridge doors hold a lot of jars. The grooved shelf underneath the top shelf on the door, is pretty useless, as well as the very bottom shelf on the door. I like having the 3 drawers in the fridge.The outside doors are either not balanced correctly or just do not have a stop on the hinge so they stay wide open. I like the "signal" that alerts if the doors remain open too long.

Comments about Whirlpool White Side-By-Side Refrigerator:
Needed a new refrigerator and wanted it to be a Whirlpool. We had a small space and this size was all that would fit. I have only one thing that I dislike, there is not enough light inside. Light in top is just too small, and the other light is positioned behind the crisper drawer. Not a great place for it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Decatur, IL
This was delivered to us "Brand New"... It never got cold (it was 57 degrees) & after having someone come out to service it we found out it had a bad motor-- he even showed me the brownish/blackish burn mark on the side. Luckily it didn't catch on fire! So we had a "brand new" fridge sitting in our house for a week & a half before it actually worked. Now that is has a new motor, it seems to be an ok fridge, but we will NEVER buy Whirlpool products again. For the price you spend on this, it should work as soon as they deliver it. Of course they couldn't just bring us a new one because of the height, it had to be ordered which takes 2 weeks. We are contemplating returning this one & ordering a different brand.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We love our new refrigerator. The side by side is great as you can always wee what is in the freezer with out having to dig for it.
A nice refrigerator for it's size.
from Queensbury, NY
We bought this fridge because it has the features we wanted & it fit in the limited space we have. I wish it had a 4th wire rack for the freezer. I don't understand why it only came with 3.
Very attractive product!!

It's everything we wanted in a refrigerator and is working very well.
Love our new whirlpool refrigerator.
We just bought our new fridge about 2 weeks ago and all is well. We really like the features it has. Love the lights! The handy soda rack is prefect for us. The drawers are awesome and the ice and water work very well. Totally satisfied!!!

After a month of use, I had to modify the lever on the ice dispenser so that I didn't have to push it in so far to trigger the ice/water release. Unless you use a wide glass, the dispenser otherwise spills water and ice out in front of the glass.

Its my third one sticking with what works over the years
Approachable and very well presented refrigerator
from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
This is a very good refrigerators, well presented from the outside with water/ice dispenser, which allows you to select small or large chunks of ice. I really like the internal distributions, which is designed to make maximum use of its capacity in a very enjoyable way, while maintaining good appearance and easy access of all groceries or items stored inside. The ice maker also has the option for you to collect all the ice at once by taking out the ice collector as a bucket. Access to the vertical freezer is very good since it does not press, or make difficult to reach your items inside. I like this fridge!
