Good day,
If it has the condensor coil mounted on the back of the machine.
(black coil) then yes, VERY DANGEROUS. Refrigeration lines run at an angle from the bottom back of the machine at an angle and terminate at the bottom of the freezer door.
This applies to both sides. Hit one of those and your finished.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the warning. Is their a way to still do it without hitting the lines? Is it just one line running up and the rest of the side is clear?"

    Possibly two thirds the way back and as high as possible. It is a single tube that runs from the top front where the freezer meets the fresh food compartment to the bottom rear.

    Frankly, I never cut one open, but that's where it starts and stops.

I want to switch the doors from left to the right side

Hi, The parts are interchangeable (hinges & handles)
You should have some small plastic plugs/caps that are covering the holes already drilled for the change. Once you remove the doors and then remove the plugs, just reinsert the plugs into the old holes and switch hinges and door handles to the opposite spots.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Any lines that run through the cabinet should go up the back or and/or around the door. I would carefully cut a hole in the liner and pull the insulation out in small peices just to make sure.

Slow water flow on Whirlpool Gold 25.6 cubic

The water line tap may be screwed back into the water line or you did not sufficiently poke a hole into the water line with the tap. We had the same problem. Shut off the water supply, remove the tap from the line and check the size of the hole. my bet is the hole is very small. Either drill out the hole with a drill and replace the tap (with a new rubber grommet) or add a tee into the line with the proper size compression fitting (that is what we did) and the water will flow freely..
