It's certainly not recommended because you can fill and clog the refrigerant lines with oil from the compressor.

IF YOU MUST...your chances are better if you leave it upright for an hour or so before plugging it in. This allows the oil to drain back into the compressor. This period should be appreciable longer in cold weather as the oil is thicker.

Mod.g17fvcxw001 leaks water from vents inside between light and water filter.


Hi,You will need to look at either the filter or water line too and from the filter housing for the leak. I have seen filters with flat spots on the "O" rings that will cause them to leak, even brand new out of the box.
Good Luck

I have to transport a refrigerator - Model # ED25PWXBW00 (side by side) approximately 100 miles. Can I lay it down? What will happen if I do?


As far as I know, you can transport a refrigerator laying down but you should leave it upright for 24 hours BEFORE you plug it in.

My brand new side by side with exterior ice/water dispenser barely dispenses water. It comes out in a tiny stream that after a few seconds only drips out. Why?


you might want to check the shut off valve on the house end. follow where the wate line goes and see if it is a self percing valve. if it is shut it off all the way to re-tap the cold water line on the house end. if there is a filter on the line with also cause this problem. Is the waterline new? if so it might not be tapped all the way.

Is it ok to transport a refrigerator on it's side?


Not true. Refers since the 1950's are sealed units but for safety's sake let it sit for awhile after you move it.

During the final spin cycle, our front loading whirlpool is making a really loud noise - it sounds like a train is going through the house. It is in the basement on a concrete floor.


If the washer is brand new, look on the back panel and make sure the 4 transportation bolts have been removed. The bolts should be roemoved completely - they are only necessary to protect the washer during transportation.

If the bolts are removed, adjust the front two legs to be 1/4 inch higher than the back two. That 1/4 inch will balance the washer during the spin cycle, perfectly.

My understanding is Whirlpool has a one year warranty. Mine is not working but it is 3 years old. Maybe your warranty is still good.
