Pull your refrig away from the wall and check to see if your compressor is running i'm willing to bet that the start relay is bad you will here a humming and then clicking noise approx every 3-5  mins. its a very easy repair get part number 8201786 from whirlpool it has detailed instructions and should only cost you 40-60 dollars for part.

Hello, We have a Whirlpool Gold bottom freezer

I don't know about Whirlpool refrigerator freezers, but my Amana has a temperature control in the freezer that regulates the overall cooling, and then the control in the refrigerator compartment controls how much of the total cooling is sent to the refrigerator section. My advice would be to lower the temperature setting of the freezer, and see if the temperature lowers in the refrigerator as well. Also, you can go to the Whirlpool website and they can help you further.

Whirlpool top freezer 18c.ft w/ icemaker: freezer works fine. fridge does not cool below 56 degrees. vacuumed dust from bottom, turned entire unit off and restarted but still not working, in back of

i think you have to check to make sure that
the fan inside the freezer is cycling on.
it will be concealed of course but you should
be able to hear it. i replaced one once with
the same symptoms and that fixed fridge
portion of a 2002 or 3 whirlpool. make sure
to listen closely and not mistake it for the
stronger fan motor which operates in
conjunction with and nearby the compressor.

Whirlpool side by side not cooling

The round object is the compressor. Is it running continuously, or is it clicking on and off every 2 or 3 minutes? There also should be a fan beside compressor. Is it running? Also check Fan in freezer to see if it is running. Is there any frost build up on inside back freezer wall? If fans are working and compressor is running continuously and there is no frost buildup in freezer, then you most likely have a sealed system problem meaning its low on freon or there is a blockage in system.

Whirlpool Gold GB2SHDXPS fridge/freezer has stopped working. It is not cold and food is thawing. The light in the fridge and the freezer is still on but it is not cooling.

can you hear a humming sound coming from the back of the refrigerator, if so that means your compressor is running, if you are hearing a buzz or clicking sound your compressor is trying to start, you may need a compressor. Some whirlpools have a 5 year sealed system warranty that would cover the repair.

Fridge not cooling/frezer overworking

It is constantly running because the thermostat in your refrigerator registers a warm temperature that never reaches target. Your refrigerator's cooling is dependant on your freezer - obviously your evaporator fan is working since your freezer is cooling, however that cool air is, for some reason not reaching your fridge - Make sure the vents are not blocked or plugged with ice - If applicable also check the damper, maybe the flap is not opening at all, letting cool air in.
Also check door seals and make sure te light switches off by pressing the door contact button.

Whirlpool side-by-side won't get cold, compressor clicks on-off.

Sounds like the start relay OR the compressor is no good. Have a service tech look at it, because there may be a capacitor in the circuit, which could be dangerous for you to fool with.

Frezer working fine but fridge not cooling

Mo, open the freezer door and look for the model tag. There should be a manufacture date on the tag. The product has a 2 year complete warranty, 5year parts and labor on the sealed system and 5-12 years parts only. The factory number is 800-222-7820 and maybe able to tell you when it was installed, They may walk you through a couple of items to tell you what was happening.
