Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

1 Answer

I have a 6 yr old Whirlpool side-by-side fridge and we've had the same problem over and over. No one seems to know what is wrong. 1st there would be water just leaking from the back of the freezer and eventually out to the floor. The drain would plug-up with ice. We also have a lot of frost build-up in the middle vent in the refrigerator side. When i open the freezer door i can feel cool air coming in the top vent to the fridge side but when i close it...nothing. it takes me 30 min to an hour to defrost the vents so it can cool the fridge side and repeat the whole process every 6 weeks but now its every week. please help!

I have a 3 yr old side-by-side. The freezer is freezing ice cream solid even though it's turned all the way down. Food in the bottom two drawers on the refigerator side are freezing. Water has dripped...


Hi, this problem is going to be with the running thermostat. (cold Control). It has gone bad and stays open which in turn will keep the compressor running continually and will cause the fridge to get colder and freeze food. It can normally be located in the control panel inside the fridge (it is the control that has wires, the other is the damper). Locate the thermostat and replace it. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

Fridge running hot!


One you can to try and extend the life of the fridge is to vacuum off the compressor and coils. They can be located either behind the toe grill on the bottom front or through an opening on the back of the fridge. It is natural for a fridge to blow warm air.

Our whirlpool 6 yr old refrig / freezer is not working correctly


Use a vacuum and clean under your fridge. A dryer cleaning brush will help make the job go much faster. Use a good light so you can get all the lint out. Give it 12 hours to level out. hope this is helpfull.. Saw

Is your model the ED25PQXF ? Can you explain what you need to do manually to cause it to work? The thermostat? If thermostat is the answer the thermostat will need replaced. By straight wiring the 2 wires it turns refrigerator on. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Either there is a loose connection at that board or in the plug where the wiring goes into the door (should be at top or bottom door hinge). If all connections are tight then replace the board. Not sure how old this unit is but it does come with a one yr warranty from date of purchase.
