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."

We are disappointed with the Whirlpool refrigerator we purchased; however, we are not venting about it we are trying to be factual.We purchased our refrigerator/freezer model WRS342FIAM in May 2013, the factory promised the seller that delivery was for June 2013, finally delivered August 2013. It is now July 2015 and it died in June 2015, 22 months after install. Cause of death: The cooling closed cycle leaks and can't be repaired. If you perform the aritmetic calculations you will find that the cost to own this machine was over six (6+) times our expected cost using the MSRP published on the Whirlpool website. We did not get a good deal.We purchased this model because we have a limited space for a refrigerator, and it was the only model available at the time that fit the space with the features we want. At this writing it is one of many models available to fit the space and on one appliance rating website Whirlpool is still listed as the most reliable model, so we are still considering the Whirlpool brand.Whirlpool has what they call a "loyalty program" wherein they offer, people like us who have suffered a loss due to their product, a price break if we purchase a replacement unit from them. That includes all of the brands Whirlpool now manufactures. If we take the Whirlpool offer on this model from their "loyalty program" with the five year extended warranty it will be less than fifty dollars less than if we buy it from one of the big box retailers and the big box five year extended warranty program covers more issues. First, the machine has not lived up to our expectations (fact). Our previous experience with refrigerators has given us expectations of at least a decade of service and up to twenty-eight years from a new machine. 22 months does not come near meeting that expectation.Second, the Whirlpool loyalty program is nearly worthless (opinion).Third: if we decide to purchase one of these again, we would buy the five year warranty and buy from the big box retailer because the warranty will be needed and the big box protection program is better than Whirlpool's.

Good Product- good price, good features

Comments about Whirlpool White Side-By-Side Refrigerator:
Wonderful new product, but then again I replaced a refrigerator that was 18 years old. But the new model is designed nicely, good features, is quiet, and easy to operate.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

bought all new appliance for my home, had a whirlpool fridge in white for 17 years, when i moved i decided to buy a stainless steel fridge but the same style i had. love the led lights in it. The space in the fridge is great, i can fit all my tupperware containers in the fruit and veg areas no problem. What i find though is the ice maker is much slower in the new fridge than my old one, but the filter is much easy to install in the new fridge than the old one. I also like that you keep the water glass in the same spot when you want water and ice.

After researching, I purchased this product due to Whirlpool reputation. I am very happy with this product, it has lots of room and is very quiet
from Macedon ny
Love the layout,only negative it takes days for the ice maker to fill. We changed to the specfied water line and still very slow. Actually 4 days and the bin is no where near full. The old frig that this replaced filled in 24 hrs. This is my only fault so far anyway.
from Upstate NY
Recently purchased after my old refrigerator of 23 years unexpectedly stopped cooling over the labor day weekend. The new one is working GREAT! and actually fits in my space better than the last one. Love the LED lights they make it so bright inside.
from Brownsburg, IN
I could not be more blessed with my new Whirlpool Refrigerator. It has everything on it that I wanted, especially crushed ice. Everyone with Best Buy, Avon, Indiana were amazing. I just lost my husband 4 months ago & it has been an up hill battle, but I did it. Best Buy rocks & so does Whirlpool. Thank you all! God bless each & everyone of you!
from TIFFIN, OH
I LIKE ALL THE FEATURES EXCEPT FOR THE FREEZER DOOR, COULD ALLOW BETTER ACCESS TO THE FREEZER IF IT WOULD OPEN WIDER.
