Unplug your refrigerator and pry out the door switch and check for continuity. In most cases this can be a defective door switch. Can you test the door switch with an OHM Meter?=> 1118894 Door Switch I am here should you have questions or comments, Thanks Sea Breeze

The lights are controlled by door switches and a small circuit board near the compressor=> W10135090 Main Control Board
The control board is quite expensive and if you know someone that can replace circuit board parts it would really pay to have them replace a defective relay, Thanks Sea Breeze

The ice maker hangs on the wall with three screws. two at the top and one at the bottom. Just loosen these screws and the ice maker will lift off the bracket and you can then reach the wiring harness to unplug it. Here's a DIAGRAM.

Whirlpool Gold GD5RHAXNQ00 refrigerator not cooling properly.

It takes time for the temp to adjust(up to 24hrs) If the door is open a lot(looking into the box) or the door gasket is bad this will contribute to your problem. Are you sure the thermometer is good that you are checking the machine with. The thermistor could be bad as well(the control that senses the actual temp

Whirlpool gold gd5rhaxnq00

Couple of reasons
a) Excess humidity in the refrigerator due uncovered food items.
B) freezer door not closing fully( look for any visible damage or hardness of the seal. The seal is made of multiple layers so even a few cracked edges will cause leakage.
c) the returning air if not circulated properly by blower which also gas a heating coil for humidification could have failed causing formation of ice.................sodeep

Loose water dispenser lever on Whirlpool GD5RHAXNQ00 refrigerator

Something is likely broken in the dispenser.

This is how most dispensers are accessed.

Check for screws around or on the under side of the dispenser trim that can be removed to get the trim off. Sometimes the drip tray in the base of the dispenser needs to be removed to access the screws. Sometimes the top panel (touchpad) of the dispenser is removed to access the dispenser components.

If there are no screws, use a putty knife with the end wrapped with tape so the paint on the door panel is not scratched.

Start at the bottom of the trim and CAREFULLY pry the trim away from the door panel.

There may be small slots in the panel on the under side that the putty knife can be inserted into.

With the trim off, the dispenser components can be serviced.

Whirlpool Gold in-door-ice model GD5RHAXNQ00 not making ice

The first symptom of dirty condenser coils is that the ice maker stops getting to zero degrees. (That's what it requires to kick the ice out.) The first thing to check is dirt and dust bunnies on the hot coils.

Put a stick type thermometer in a stick of butter or a pint of ice cream and wait a day to see if the freezer is set getting to zero F.

Whirlpool Side By Side GD5RHAXNQ00-Electrical Issue

The arcing noise is just that, a loose connection causing electricity to arc from one place to another. this is initiated by opening the door and closing the light switch. The small glow is from a small amount of voltage reaching the bulb. If you are inclined, repair it. remove the cover, look for the burnt wire or connection. If its a removable part, replace it. If not clean it up and/or make a new connection. One thing is for sure, it will not get any better and may get worse and burn up something more critical.
