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.

Good size, strange setup for the interior light
from Columbus, OH
We bought a house that had this refrigerator already in it. As it was a flip, it was brand new with the stickers on. It's the perfect size for what we need. The water/ice dispenser is a little slow but works fine. The only thing that is odd is that to turn on the interior light in the side with the fridge, you must open the freezer door as well. Only opening the door on the side of the fridge will not trigger the light to come on, as there is only a trigger for the light on the freezer side. If find this kind of odd, and wonder if it could possibly be a defect with ours (we didn't buy it so I am not sure). Other than that, which is just a minor annoyance, its a works well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Excellent convenient storage and grocery display
from St. Croix Falls, WI
We love it. The shelving configurations make it easy to see what's in the fridge. The ice and water in the door is convenient.
The headline is okay
from Niles, IL
I did not pay close enough attention to the ice/water dispenser when I purchased this refrigerator. The choices ae very hard to see -- dark blue on black. I would have much preferred a horizontal lever.

I have had my refrigerator for about three weeks and am very pleased with it. It is so light weight that I have no trouble moving it in and out from the wall for cleaning, etc. The factory average temperatures are what I started with and am still using those. The refrigerator and freezer are the perfect temperature. I purchased a new washer and dryer last fall and also chose Whirlpool. I would never choose any other brand!
Efficient use of space
from Hampstead, NC
After 20 years of great service from our old KitchenAid, we went out to find a replacement. The space we had was 35 inches wide and 35 inch models are no longer made. This model came to our rescue. Despite being 2 inches narrower, it gave us all the features we wanted with very little loss of space. A very efficient layout of shelves and bins provided virtually an equivlent capacity.

Very unique condition required a maximum 33-inch refrigerator. Limited selection but really liked the features of the Whirlpool - then found this model - perfect for my needs and looks elegant. It is the BEST
from Cheraw, SC
I ordered this refrigerator 7 weeks ago received it 4 weeks ago and had to have a service call 2 weeks ago. I lost about $250 in grocery items when the relay stopped working and then freezer and refrigerator compartment shut down. After the service call which took 4 days I noticed a crack in the humidrawer. Needless to say, I'm not real satisfied.
Great product, great price
Very happy with our purchase, Whirlpool 21 cu ft refrigerator. Pleasantly surprised that the ice maker can be locked so that the Grand children cannot play with the buttons. Lots of space and deep shelving making locating specialty items very quickly. Would definitely recommend this product to friends and family, very satisfied with the purchase.

This is my first refrigerator that has ice and water in the door. I quit buying spring water since there is filtered water. I have one piece of shelving that I do not know what to do with, but aside that I am very pleased!
