Refrigerator and freezer doesn't keep food as cold anymore. Food is spoiled and temperature is at it's highest. Whirlpool w8txngfwt


Get a repair man to check out the freon pressure in your unit. If the freon is low there will be no cooling power. Ours had a little leak in a hose and cost $95.00 to repair. If it's an older fridge it might be better to purchase a newer one. Unless you have the testers and know what you are doing to check this unit you need a repair man.

"Check Filter" light blinking when dryer is turned on. It will run, but I want to get the light off. Do I reset? How do I do this?


Clean out the area where the lint screen goes in to. The sensor may be dirty. You should be able to get a swiffer duster down in it. If you have a air compressor, you can try blowing it out too. Check your exhaust hose, it may be kinked plugged. If there isn;t anything blocking it , check your manual for a reset switch in case it has one. If all is good and the light won't turn off, I would put a piece of tape over it to hide it. Last resort is the repair man

Can't hear the compressor, panel inside is not lit,


Most likely your main board went out. Try turning your braker on and off. Most likely you need a service man asap.

Freezer and fridge areas both 50 degrees


Assuming you have a frost-free refigerator:
Is your motor-compressor running?
If so, check if you have ice in the freezer section; if so, maybe your defrost thermostat or heating element is kaput.
If the motor-compressor is not running, check in the back of the refrgerator if the defrost time is stuck open, bu turning clockwire the small test screw, with a 1/2inch screwdriver.
