Question about Whirlpool Gold White-on-White 21.9 cu. ft. Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Ice and Water GD2SHAXLQ Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Whirlpool fridge will not get cold after cleaning

I cleaned my whirlpool fridge with regular wiping using water with bleach and soap.

I opened the panel under the ice maker because the water was squirting every where and the icemaker quit working.

Could you help me diagnose the problem?

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.

Whirlpool refrigerator not keeping anything cold


Hello. We are sorry to learn that your refrigerator was not cooling. I would vacuum around the unit, using a hoseattachment, to remove any dust or lint that could be blocking the blower. Donot go under the unit, as you could hit a fan, and cause damage to other parts.I would also move any food items away from the vents in the unit to helprestore proper air flow. Using a $1bill, close it in the door and the frame, and see if the bill pulls out easily. If it does, then the seal is not closingproperly. Clean around the gasket usingmild soap and water, and see if that improves the seal. I hope this information is helpful. Sincerely, Melaine, Whirlpool Socail Media.

The fridge and freezer smell like a dead animal. cleaned the inside with bleach but still smells for weeks. model w10212088


There are two reasons for bad smells. 1. Long time not being used. 2. Lack of cleaning inside compartment.

Solution: Unplug fridge. Keep open fridge door. Dip a dry cloth in soap water and start cleaning each and every compartment. Keep freezer door also open. And then clean with another dry cloth. Keep both doors open for nearly 5 hrs. It will be enable fresh air to **** the smell inside fridge.
After 5 hrs close the fridge and run on empty for one hour. Keep food items after one hour. Please keep all food items closed vessel. Not only it's avoid odor but also be hygienic.
If you use to keep fish items in freezer, clean fridge once in a week.(Spray roo spray in the room when you keep fridge door opened. Don't spray into fridge.)Helpful.

Refrigerator smells horrible , but there is NOTHING spoiled in it.


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.

Good Luck!

Water in bottom of fridge


In the back of the fridge way down low on the very bottom you will see the tube. If you think it is clogged. Take a spray bottle filled with very hot water and just a cap full of bleach. Spray it on the drain hole and this will rsolve your blockage issue
