Question about Whirlpool GD5DHAXVY Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

I have a Whirlpool GD5DHAXVY model refrigerator that I got a couple months ago and it rocks back and forth, left front to right rear. There doesn't seem to be enough support in the right rear of the refrigerator. I went online to the Whirlpool site and tried to adjust everything they suggest with no success. I don't think the problem is with the floor not being level because it does the same thing when I roll it out. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Side by Side Whirlpool Refrigerator: Refrigerator is freezing food

Hi, riverbyfarm
You did try what i would of recommended first!
The resetting of the system by, turning off the controls of the freezer and the fridge first and then unplugging it or if you can't reach the plug, to throw the breaker off for 5 minutes!
That is a possibility in the order that I described!!!!!

Second I ask, is the freezer packed full to the hilt with packages?
In some refrigerators if the frozen food covers the air vents in the freezer cause they are plied sky high and deep in the freezer it can cause a problem.
The freezer and fridge share the air and have to have the vents or passages free so to allow sharing of the cold air!
Let me know if the measures as I prescribed have an affect.

Waiting for your reply!

The solenoid valve needs replacing, located at the back of the refrigerator. If you have well water you will need to install a filter on the supply line.

There are a lot of possibilitys. You'll have to use the process of elimination.

But it could be the thermostat (make sure your setting is midway) The milk spoiling indicates it is too warm so bacteria is breeding

Get a refrigerator / freezer stand alone thermostat (about $5) That will give you accurate readings. The fridge shoud be between 35 and 40 F and the freezer 0 plus or minus 3 when set correctly

It could be your condensor fan is clogged or just that your coils need cleaning (underneath or behind) Use a vacuum with the brush end or chisel point. Dust can cut you efficiency by 20 or 30% by itself.

Assuming this is frost free model the defrost timer may be acting up in the freezer.

Forgive me for not knowing where the coils are and if it is frost free but I can't find a manual for this particular model. However the principles apply in any case.

Your water filter may need changed. On some models, when it's clogged it bypasses to the drip tray. The only other source of water to the tray is during the defrost cycle which happens about once a day and should not fill it up.

SOURCE: Noisy whirlpool condensor fan motor

These motors with the plastic fan are apparently failing so often that when I went to the parts store, the owner told me on guy bought 4 replacement motors for his condo complex. Buy the old version of the motor with a metal fan blade. You have to clip off the white connector on the wiring harness and then wire to the new motor using wire nuts (easy). It's a lot cheaper too - $49 for the motor and blade vs alost $100 for the crappy plastic one. Running llike a champ right now!

Fridgaire vibrating and moving ahead during spin cycle


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Being a new installation it will need its feet adjusting ;-0)

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.


If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

How do I replace the filter in my whirlpool refrigerator, model GR2FHTXT


In the toe grill of your reefrigerator you should find a filter cap that is covering your filter. Rotate this cap to the left 1/4 of a turn you should feel the filter release from the housing then pull the filter out and discard it. Take the Filter cap from the old filter and reinstall on your new filter. Install your new filter in to the housing applying slight pressure turn the filter 1/4 of a turn to the right. You should feel the filter lock in to place. Now with a BIG container go to your water dispenser and dispense about 3 gallons of water.

G E front load washer makes loud banging noise in spin cycle. rocks back in forth like is not level. What may be the problem?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It probably is NOT level!

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest.

If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

(If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.

Putting in the new water filter to the Whirlpool gold fridge that goes in at the bottom.


Removing a water filter from the base grill of your Whirlpool brand refrigerator:


Removing and replacing a water filter - base grill location

Filters situated in the base grill (below the freezer compartment) of Whirlpool-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these two steps:
  1. Grasp the filter's end and make a one-quarter turn to the left.
  2. Pull the filter straight out.
To replace with a new filter, repeat these two steps in the opposite order, making sure to first remove the red cap from the filter. Proceed by pushing the filter straight into the slot, and then giving it a one quarter turn to the right.
Note: Replacing this type of filter is quick - there is no need to unplug your refrigerator when replacing it. Also, this filter should be replaced every six months.

Our new Bravos washer shakes excessively during the spin cycle, is this normal for this model?


No, not normal. Bravos don't even vibrate much. First, make sure the machine is sitting level. If it is level front to back and side to side and still shaking, try this simple test, put your hands on opposing corners (right front, left back) at the same time and try to rock it back and forth and then try it on the other 2 corners (left front, right back). If the machine wobbles at all it would cause this issue. This can be cause by a lose leg or leg mounting issue. If all this checks out you should call for warranty service as it could be something internal and you don't want to let it go for a long time.

Refrigerator doesn't cool


Might be your condenser which removes the heat from the refrigeration system may be restricted. Clean under the unit from the front and back.
