A few days before we discovered that the fridge wasn't working properly, I heard intermittent clicking sounds. The motor at the back and bottom??(not sure exactly where) of the fridge sounded like it was...


IF YOU HEARD THE UNIT CLICKING FROM THE BACK AND THEN A FEW MINUTES LATER DO IT AGAIN MOST likely you have a bad start relay on the compressor and the overload device on the compressor is kicking out... whirlpool is known for this particullary problem and it normally is a easy fix... go to www. repairclinic.com or apdepot.com and you should be able to enter you model number on one of those sites and your looking for the compressor relay ....
to varify it is bad and prior to buyiong pull it off should be 2 maybe three wires in some cases and shake it...if the relay rattles like something broke thats your problem.... also unplug the unit the more it trys to start with the bad relay you could eventually damage the compressor if it has not already..... good luck

ZFSB26DRESS water runs warm and freezer not staying cold.


It sounds like the condenser coils , the coils by the compressor , need cleaned badly . This (and the compressor cooling fan) , can cause the compressor to cut off on overload (due to the heat) , thereby not circulation refrigerant thru out the freezer coils .
The water line goes from inside the freezer door ( cold ) , under the refrig ( warm ) , then to the inside refrig water reservoir ( cold ) . After that , you should get cold water , until the reservoir is drained of cold water .

Have a whirlpool side by side refriferator estate model. Freezer won't get cold. Cleaned off underneath,fan is turning, Unplugged for awhile and plugged back in. Keep hearing clicking noise coming from...


Plastic box you're referring to contains the start components for the compressor. The clicking sound sound you hear is the protective overload shutting the compressor off because it won't start.
Two possibilities
1. The components inside the plastic box (cover) are defective and need replaced. You can remove them, by snapping off the cover and pulling them straight off. Most appliance parts houses will be happy to test them.
2. The compressor has failed internally.
Note: In my personal experience when dealing with whirlpool Estate models, 99% of the time it has been a failed compressor.

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.

PULLED FRIDGE OUT, REMOVED BACK PANEL, EVAPORATOR


Yes , motor is bad . May not start , next time cuts off . The fan in the back by the compressor , is called the condensor fan motor . I would suggest cleaning the coils in front at the bottom , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , before replaceing the fan motor . Also , clean the fan blade before reinstalling the motor .

Whirlpool Side by Side Fridge Not Cooling


Here's the sequence: First, the unit must be ice free. This happens after power down for about 2 days. If the compressor is clicking, power off for 15 minutes. While waiting....

Clean the condenser coils.

If a mechanical thermostat, does it click when you turn it from off?

Locate compressor in back of unit. Find largest pipe. Power on.

Pipe should frost over for about a minute and then either dry out or form ice on it. If frost stays, you need refrigerant.

If compressor is not running, it could be thermostat, defrost timer (find this little gem in the back of the refrigerator and turn the stub shaft about 1/3 way around...does this change anything?) If the timer is bad...replace it.

Compressors generally don't fail from long run cycles.

hope all this gets you somewhere.
