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

Freezer defrosting Our Whirlpool Gold Model# GD5SHGXKQ01 must have started defrosting today. We have turned off the freezer part for a while to see if that helps. It also no longer makes ice. The refrigerator side seems to not be as cold either.

    Thanks. We ended up calling a repair man and it was some kind of relay switch. It was close to burning up. So I am glad we just lost some food.

Bottom freezer door stuck closed due to food blocking. How can I get door open? Whirlpool Gold Model GX5FHDXVQ01


Hi Pat, that's a tough situation. Are you able to get the door open at all to slip something long through like a piece of wood to maneuver stuff around in the freezer?
If you can't, maybe turn down your freezer to start a defrost, or do a complete defrost.

My Whirlpool Gold Series Fridge is not cold in Fridge part, but is still working in freezer part. What might the remedy be?


Could be a few things. One could be a bad evaporator fan motor in the freezer section. The fan motor will only come on when the light switch is closed so make sure you hold down the light switch when you check it. Could be a defrost timer or defrost bimetal. You will know because you will have ice buildup on the back wall inside the freezer. Also could be icebuildup in the return air duct. They are located under the drawers in the refrigerator.

The Whirlpool Gold refrigerator is not cooling and the bottom freezer has ice formed on the back of the freezer. I purchased the refrigerator in February 2009.


If you can hear the fan running in the freezer you have a defrost issue. Depending on the Model number it can be a timer, adaptive defrost board, a bi-metal themostat, or heater.

Whirlpool Gold freezes up to frige side


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Water buildup in the fridge, dripping in from the freezer


This could be a bad thermostat. If your thermostat never closes it's swith then the defrost element never comes on and you get the problem you are having. Easy fix. Do you know where your timer is and can you retate it?
