Question about Whirlpool ET4WSKXS Top Freezer Refrigerator
Open both doors and check to see if the center divide between the the freezer and fridge is warm/hot to touch. If so, you need a new cooling motor/fan. Motor should come with new fan and can be purchased for around $60. Pretty easy to change yourself. In cover on back/bottom of unit. Have exact model and changed that part 6 months ago.

Thanks for using FixYa. In a self-defrosting freezer, poor cooling often results from a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. To access these coils you need to remove panel inside the freezer. If there is any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, ceiling, or floor it’s sign of frost build-up and it means a problem with the self-defrosting system.
Freezers should self-defrost three to four times in 24 hours. In case a component in the self-defrosting system fails, the freezer continues to try to cool, instead. Eventually, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There is some cooling as the coils are frozen. But with no air flow over the coils, the cooling is quite limited and the freezer isn't cold as normally it should be.
To check the de frosting system problem, you need to remove all of the perishable food from the freezer, turn the thermostat to off, leave the door open for 24 to 48 hours to "manually" defrost the freezer. After the frost and ice build-up is completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If it is cooling properly, it indicates a problem with one of these components in the self-defrosting system:

Unplug your freezer. Move the fridge 1 foot from the wall. Wait 15 minutes and plug again . if it works good , ok . if not you will need to call the technician who will check the starting relay and the compressor
