Question about Whirlpool ED5SHAXM Side by Side Refrigerator
Whirlpool Bottom-Mount Refrigerator Model # GB9SHDXPS01
Control, Damper Part# 8208195
Shortly after we purchased our refrigerator we noticed that it was gradually getting noisier. With 1 month before the warranty expired we had a service call to replace the Damper Control. That solved the problem for about 8 - 10 weeks but now it is noisy again and the warranty is expired.
I'm positive that I can replace the part myself but how can I be sure that the replacement part doesn't become noisy as well? Does Whirlpool have a bulletin or superseded part that is more reliable?
The solenoid valve needs replacing, located at the back of the refrigerator. If you have well water you will need to install a filter on the supply line.

If it is a Kitchenaid brand, the liner is covered under full factory warranty for up to 5 years. (See your warranty guide page). I am the Svc Mgr of an Authorized service center and relayed to one of my customers this morning, that if they took photos after the repair was made and call customer service, they will tell you where to send them. If...and they will agree the repair is un-sightly, you get an exchange. I am not sure it will work with the Whirlpool brand even though they are in the same family ** all made by same company, Kitchenaid cost more and comes with a longer warranty.... hope this helps.

There are a lot of possibilitys. You'll have to use the process of elimination.
But it could be the thermostat (make sure your setting is midway) The milk spoiling indicates it is too warm so bacteria is breeding
Get a refrigerator / freezer stand alone thermostat (about $5) That will give you accurate readings. The fridge shoud be between 35 and 40 F and the freezer 0 plus or minus 3 when set correctly
It could be your condensor fan is clogged or just that your coils need cleaning (underneath or behind) Use a vacuum with the brush end or chisel point. Dust can cut you efficiency by 20 or 30% by itself.
Assuming this is frost free model the defrost timer may be acting up in the freezer.
Forgive me for not knowing where the coils are and if it is frost free but I can't find a manual for this particular model. However the principles apply in any case.

Sounds like a defective cold control ( off/on thermostat).
They will tend to stick in the off position. Your moving the knod unsticks it.

If it's flooding, it's NOT the drain pan. It's probably the water valve has gotten stuck in the open position. Hope this helps!
