Hello,
This is Alison from GE.

Model number GFSS2HCYSS does not have a dispenser. This model has a factory installed icemaker and will not offer filtered water or crushed ice on the inside.

The information under the description for model GFSS2HCYSS is incorrect and will be corrected.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

However, the height measurement to the top of the case (excluding the hinges) is 67-3/4" which is within your range. The width of this model is 33" exactly. This is the smallest size for our Bottom-freezer models with the French-door design.

I know the sides of the stainless steel model are gray. But what about the texture/finish on the side of the refrigerator cabinet..what is this like? In shopping for refrigerator/freezers like this some models seem to have a crinkle or "leathery" like pattern. Other models have a really smooth finish (no crinkles or grain, which is what we are looking for). What about this model? Thank you.

The GE French Door Refrigerator in Stainless Steel Model # GFSS2HCYSS is a beautiful refrigerator.

The water valve on most GE refrigerators is near the bottom of the back of the refrigerator. Some models have the valve on the right when viewing the refrigerator from the back, and some models have the valve on the left when viewing the refrigerator from the back.

On this model facing the back it is on the left.
