Check that door switch is working correctly . positioned on cabinate not on door . even if it looks OK it may not be working . check freezer fan is working correctly. If they both work then check thermostat / temp control switch and control board. All in that order . cheers .

Throw it out and don't buy Whirlpool again. I had the same fridge and it was doing the same thing and would of cost heaps to fix it.

Whirlpool refrigerator model# gs6nhaxvk 06...fridge and freezer works normal, but water dispenser and lights not working and the door ajar alarm is beeps.Please advise.


if your freezer door is not closing properly you will have problem with the dispenser because the light switch activate the dispenser is a safety device checked why your door is staying ajar. can be gasket or what i have seen is that after cleaning the refrigerator the customer don't put shelves in properly causing shelf to push against door

Why is the fridge beeping as if it was still opened although it's closed ?


Door sensor is either stuck or a door is not shut properly check the door hinges then unplug for 5 minutes to rest the board it should stop.

My fridge does the open door beep and motor on/off just by opening the door. Ive searched through here and suggestion is to clean the door switch, but I cant find the door switch on freezer or fridge...


Depending on which two numbers after the ET1FHTXM may make a difference. For example ET1FHTXM00 the only thing that may cause a beep or cut the refrigerator (that I know of) on or off would be=> Circuit Board or Timer 2213473 This is a ADC adaptive defrost control and when they go bad strange things happen.Click Here=>

My whirlpool refrigerator beeps continuosly when i open the door, the light flashers also & the motor sounds like it stops & starts also. What is the problem?


Hello All.
I would like to add my findings.
My fridge WBM46LS of 11 years started behaving exactly as the OP described. I tried all the suggestions regarding holding buttons, power off etc to no avail.
I even found an online manual here
https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/view/18647891/whirlpool-uk-refrigerator-models-wbm35lw-wbm35ls-/5
But that did not address the problem at all.
So I went back to someones suggestion about the Potency Module.
I pulled the fridge out and unscrewed the cover at the bottom left to get access to the Potency module.(Red plastic box)
Without even pulling it open I could smell the burnt electronics.
I opened up the case and found a scorch mark next to the big capacitor on the circuit board.
So far, so good.
Given that a new fridge of the same size/style is about $1300 I pursued the spare part.
I then tracked down a supplier in Melbourne with a new board/module for $148.50. P# WPP326020913
Plugged in the new board in and fired up the fridge and its working just like new.
So I am happy now that a perfectly good fridge is up and working again.
