Re: Whirlpool fridge will not get cold after cleaning
IF THIS REFRIGERATOR IS A TOP MOUNT FREEZER/REFRIGERATOR, CHECK TO BE SURE THAT THE FILL TUBE AND CUP ON THE BACK OF THE ICE MAKER ISN'T FROZEN UP. THE WATER SHOULD FLOW DOWN THE FILL TUBE, THROUGH THE CUP, AND INTO THE ICE MAKER.
I'M NOT SURE WHICH PANEL YOU REMOVED. IF IT IS THE ACCESS PANEL DOWN AT THE BOTTOM BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR, THAT IS WHERE THE INLET WATER VALVE IS LOCATED. IF THAT IS WHERE THE WATER IS SQUIRTING FROM, CHECK THE CONNECTIONS ON THE VALVE TO BE SURE THEY ARE TIGHT. ALSO, CHECK THE PLASTIC WATER LINES ATTACHED TO THE VALVE TO BE SURE THEY AREN'T CRACKED OR BROKEN.

You might have something smelly in the defrost drain pan. The easiest thing to do would be to take the back off the fridge and see if the defrost drain pan smells bad...if so just clean it out with soap and hot water. don't use anything too strong smelling to clean it though, you don't want your fridge to smell like bleach or pine sol.
bleach and bleach and bleach and bleach!!!!! also i notice more of a smell in washers when people only use liquid detergent and too much of it.
Tip: leave door open after every wash
clean with bleach and hot water regularly once a month
with no clothes on a normal cycle
alternate liquid detergent and powder (yes powder comes HE)
only use HE detergent
try these things and you will find your washer smelling like new again. but tthe trick is BLEACH and a lot of it. once you get a smell it takes a long time to get rid of it.
good luck and let me know if this helps
resolve this issue you'll need to clean your top load washer. Try the
steps mentioned below to clean it--
Remove the dispenser and spray with white vinegar. Then spray the agitator with
it too. You can pretty much wipe it right out. Vinegar dissolves softener very
quickly. The dispenser just wash out with warm water after the vinegar sits on
it for a minute, and you hardly have to wipe at it at all. try adding bleach to
the dispenser and clean it with a small brush. The
dispenser will pull off from the agitator and you can run hot water in it from
the sink. The agitator is not as easy but has a 1/2" bolt holding it to
the shaft. remove the bolt and pull up. but you can clean the whole washer with
a cup of bleach and that will also clean the agitator. Now run a full tub of
hot water and then add a cup of bleach with no soap. After the washer has
filled up, then add another gallon of hot water and that will help to rinse out
the residues that cause odors. then after that dont use too much soap and you
wont have residue build up. Only use the smallest amount of soap that the cup
has marked in it. After
performing all these steps if you still get lint on clothes then it is due to a
clogged drain pump and/or drain filter. Please
do rate the solution & revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
are you useing he detergent? if not this is your problem the washer cannot get ride of the soap so what it does is leave a layer of film in your washer and odor causeing bacteria forms in it. There is a product called AFFRESH you can buy it at SEARS it is made specifically for this. Do you leave the door open ragularly? The reason I am asking is because your washer is like your bathroom if you do not ventilate it properly it will grow mold and it needs to be cleaned. By leaving the door closed all the time it is very easy for the bacteria to grow. So my advice is to leave the door open, make sure you are useing the correct soap (HE) high efficiancy soap, clean the washer with no clothes hot water and bleach and use the affresh or washer magic. Since you can smell the smell you are going to have to keep cleaning it abouit 2-3 times a month till it goes away. Then once a month. This is not a machanical problem or a whirlpool problem and is very commen in ALL front loader if you do not clean it regularly.
sorry there right ..your not using he or low suddsing detergent ,or your using to much..as the water pumps out of unit the sudds stick to side of tub than when rinse water comes in it washes back on your clothes...i can only give you tips and something to look for...look for water not drainning fast enough ,,cut down on detergent,,wash your dark clothes first..give your unit a bleach clean about a pint of bleach..keep me posted onthejob
there is a product out which cleans interior of wash tub called affresh which works better that bleach which could be purchased at leows or home depot for about $7 for 3 tabs follow direction on package. remember use he type soap only and you only need 1 oz of soap per load
This nasty smell is generally soap scum build-up. First thing i would do is to remove the bottom panel and clean the pump filter, (sometimes junk builds up there and stinks) if the inside of the pump is slimy, make sure your drain hose is not installed too deep, pull up the hose and see if it is wet and slimy at the end, if so, it is siphoning dirty water back into the machine after the cycle has ended. If that is the case, correct the drain hose so it is only 5-6" down the pipe, and then run a sanitary (hot) cycle, with nothing but a half gallon of bleach. Don't use that much bleach regularly though, as it can wear on hoses. After the machine is clean, make sure you leave the door open while not in use, use only HE (high efficiency) soap, and use a max of 3-4 Tablespoons. Also, to reduce odor, try sprinkling Oxi-clean powder in the door boot lining occasionally. Hope this helps..
believe it or not whirlpool says that's normal its in your owners manuel under dispenser because the washer mixes the bleach soap fabric softener with water for it to dispense they say its normal for water to remain but if you want to empty it there is a tab that you can press down on in the dispenser and remove it have a bowl handy
