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:
We have had this fridge for almost a year now and we still complain about it daily. The drawers do not pull out or push back in easily, you have to be cautious and wiggle them a bit. You can hear them grinding on the tracks, I'm always nervous something is going to break. The ice dispenser makes a mess every time we use it with ice cubes falling all over the place even well after we have used the dispenser. We never use the crushed ice setting for this reason as well. The water also doesn't dispense cold like I thought it would either. Just really not a huge fan of this fridge but we have a space that requires an in cabinet measurement and this was one of our only options.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We bought this refrigerator because we have limited space issues. It is nice and roomy. I do wish it had a convertible veggie/meat drawer! We had ice within about 2 hours of it being plugged in and have had no issues with water/ice use. Temperatures of both the fridge and freezer are consistent and have not been changed since installation. Milk and juice are cold and ice cream has kept well in the freezer!
