Noticed some of the Kenmore side by sides look different now, and sure enough its because Whirlpool changed them. Haven't seen a new Amana model yet.

Overall not sure I like the changes. They did away with the older dual knob temperature control design that dates back to the 80s at least and replaced it with a new system.

The ice/water dispenser has been redesigned so instead of selecting ice or water on the panel, there are two dispenser paddles, front for water, back for ice.

They also did away with the plastic lid with a slot over the spill area, which I don't like. It's just a shallow well now with no cover.

This is what the older version looks like. Has dial style controls, single lever for ice/water, and a cover over the spill tray.

And Amana version which is basically the same thing.
