It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Why is the microwave running without being turned on?

These above range microwaves "hoods" automatically turn on a cooling fan even when the microwave is not in use. If you read the manuals you will see warnings about the fans automatically starting. Even when the microwave is not in use opening the door likely interrupts the power to the automatic cooling fan.

I have a Whirlpool Refigerator (double door, freezer over cooler). Its model number is WBM35 IX (made in 2003). Lately I have problems in the fridge. The freezer freezes the items. But there is no...

My guess is the fan has gone on it. Mine did the same thing. The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer compartment via a fan that is usually in the back of the freezer. It's not a hard replacement, if you're tech-savvy (took me about 1/2 hr.) and the part will cost you about 40 to 70 dollars, depending on where you buy it (priced mine out at $70, I think, but found a local guy who sold me one for $40. It's called an "Evaporator Fan" and I believe this link will show you a possible replacement for it (The crappy part is that you need to take the old one out to look at it to be sure). Good luck.

My Whirlpool WBM35LW constantly beeps as SOON as i open either the fridge or freezer door..

The problem may be caused by lower than normal freezer temp. Is your fridge in the sun at all? If so move it. Also refrigerating gas may be lower than should be. But I doubt that. I would most expect either lever switch on door . or thermostat/temp control switch. if it is temp control thermo problem you would likely notice intermittent variations in food coldness in freezer . ( sometimes very frozen some times beginning to defrost.. Hope this helps.

Whirlpool WBM46 faulty module

I know this is an old thread, but just in case people, like myself, are still looking
It is a 450V 2uF Capacitor that causes the issue. It is used as part of a divider circuit and as it fails, it creates a situation where the board can not supply the correct power so when the compressor, fan and light run together the fridge literally turns on and off repeatedly. The capacitor is on the Potency Module. This fails over time, the capacitor dries out, and that causes the issue.
This fridge model, including all variants of WBM35 and WBM46 (that I know of) has a Magnetic door switch for the interior lighting and fan control, so there is no lever or anything to hold in or tape in.
The Potency Module is easy to replace as a complete unit, it is on the lower left side of the rear of the fridge. There is 1 screw to remove (hex head) to release the metal cover and two screws that hold the potency module in place.
The cabling is keyed so will only go back on the one way. Cables are firmly connected, but just pull out. Be careful not to damage the ribbon cable when you unplug it (this goes to the interface board which is at the front of the fridge, with the two buttons and lights).
The Potency module as a complete part is available still (as of me writing this) but varies from $180 to $400 depending where you source it from. It's fairly easy to remove and replace if you have a little knowledge. If you get a tradie in to fix it, then it will not be worth it on the smaller models such as WBM35's as a new fridge would be cheaper.

Door will no vacuum seal closed

Are you sure compressor is running? If it is make sure the evap fan is running. You should be able to hear the fan when you open the door. If ypou do not hear a fan running then fan has gone bad. 4390914 and approx cost is rediculous in my mind but it is approx. 150.00 to 160.00 . Crazy for a fan motor.

Hello, we have a whirlpool side by side (estate...between the doors is very hot the compressor is so hot you'd have to have pot holders to remove it. the fan is running fine the fridge and freezer are both...

Check the condensor coils and clean them. The condensor fan may be running slower than normal. It is working hard to move the heat. The area between the doors has a line there purposely to keep it warm so moisture that condenses there when the doors are opened evaporates and doesn't cause mold.

Bottom of ice maker/dispenser frosting over

Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced or something is wrong with the mechanism. The problem you describe is almost always air leakage around that flap.
Post back if you need more help.
