1 Answer

This is our second whirlpool gold top freezer unit!

This is our second whirlppol gold top freezer unit in 60 days. We are still having the same issue with the ice buildup in the freezer. Is this a known issue? We are probably returning this unit and go with a different mfr. Two refrigerators, two problems and same issue! Repairman actually caulked around freezer on a brand new unit. Unbelievable.

This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning unit, it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

Most likely a deforst issue, having to do with either the Defrost thermostat or the Defrost timer, given that this unit is not the newer style with the control board instead of the timer. Anymore questions feel free to ask.

Top half of frig. and freezer not cold .Whirlpool gold series side by side . bottom half is cold what do you think it could be?


Good day,
On a side by side machine, that is almost always the fan motor in the freezer compartment not working.
When you open the freezer door, you should be able to hear it run.
If not, you can access the motor by removing the rear panel in the freezer panel and inspect.
If it needs replaced it is a simple nuts and bolts repair.

Sounds like the condesor coil fan motor went bad and shorted in the windings or stator. It can be replaced fairly easily. You can get the mtor from one of the online part stores and install through the base of the unit next to the compressor. you should clean the area of lint while your down there, it helps keep it operating more efficiently.

Whirlpool conquest 2001 GS6SHAXKQ01 refrigerator side by side top part is not cooling


the first one sounds like it is slowly leaking freon.
  •  the second Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.
