If your referring to the compressor start relay the part number you need is 8201786 and can be purchased thru any local appliance parts dealer also you could check or thru whirlpool.
this is a plug and play part for the majority of whirlpool refrigerators and there are good instructions included with the part.
good luck Peyton

Hi, I have a whirlpool gold side by side fridge/freezer. I came home the other day and water all over the floor. I opened the freezer and it wasd hot. Opened the fridge, same thing. Light and fan work and...

Quick reference to your compressor says that it is a 120 V powered regular compressor.

It might be simple as starting device failure on compressor. Either capacitor or relay. Worst case compressor gone. Still not crazy expensive compared to a DC powered compressor.

Shut off the fridge (pull the plug) to prevent further damage to compressor and call a local service guy if you want to save the fridge.

I have a Whirlpool Refridgerator model WBM39MS. It stopped cooling and I had it repaired. The Repairman replaced the electronic control box. Repairer claims that the compressor is working. It now seems...

Hi Lollipop, partially working fridge? A fridge either works or not, cold air is made in freezer then distributed to fridge via a vent. In your case WBM Series fridge, top mount freezer blows air down a vent (back centre of chiller compartment). A common fault with the WBM Series is both the PCB and Interface Panel (PCB beside compressor back of fridge, Interface is display panel front of fridge).
So if freezer is cold and fridge not, try a fan motor. If compressor doesn't work either comp is faulty or PCB has blown(has a burning smell).. Hope this helps you and maybe many other ppl.

Freezer not working whirlpool model gd25dixb02 also puddle of water coming out from under.

IF it started leaking after you turned the fridge off - you have problem with defrost system.
OTHERWISE you have problem with the sealed system or compressor start device. I will cover the latter only.
First, read this recall, check your serial number and call Whirlpool if necessary.
If your fridge is not affected by the recall and the fridge started leaking while still running:
Check the start device first. If there is clicking noise every few minutes - this is what you need to know. Unplug fridge. Remove cover on the back of fridge. On compressor (black roundish metal thingy with copper tubing coming out of it) there is a start device with wires coming to it. Remove from compressor, turn it contacts side down and shake it a few seconds in your palm. If small pieces, looking like sand fall out or you can hear those pieces loose inside the start device - replace it.
This is the part you need: 8201799 Installation instructions are enclosed
"New10" coupon takes 10% off on that site.
If your start device is ok - check the capacitor, which is either attached or wired with black wires to the start device. Check if its capacity is close to whatever is printed on it. Replace if capacity is way off, capacitor shorted or open. That part is here. It's very unlikely that you'll need to replace it.
If both things are ok, you may have a problem with compressor or refrigerant or refrigerant lines, which you cannot legally touch without an EPA license for refrigerants handling.
