This refrigerator has a basic wiring diagram showing power going through the defrost timer, compressor and compressor start components. Because the model number could be very close to the ET8WTKXK your model may have either a ADC, adaptive defrost control or typical 482493 Defrost Timer

Freezer will not freeze water in bottles and seals between freezer door and fridge are very hot to touch


That means that heat from the compressor is being transferred to the rest of thet machine like a heatsink. The reason why is either the condensor fan motor is not running which most likely the reason, or the condensor coils are severely dirty. You'll need to pull the machine out from the wall, leaving it plugged in and remove the lower plate at the bottom. Locate the fan, usually more toward the right hand side if your behind it, and if the compressor is runnning then the fan should be running. Period. The fan draws air across the compressor and blows it throught the condensor coils which will located right next to the fan, cooling them down.

The freezer stopped working but the frige seem fine. no ice build up on the defrost timer.


No model # given to reference the symtoms. I would surly worry if you had ice buildup on the defrost timer. Some are in the fresh food side and some are outside the compartments. Extreamly rare to have one in the freezer.
Also if this is a standard SxS or top mount system...everything that happens in the fresh food section, happens because of the freezer. Air moves from the ff side to the freezer. The air is cooled down and recirulates back through the freezer and to the ff side. Issue could be ...evaporator fan bad or low RPM, freezer door switch, cold control not cycling on / back on. Compressor intermittantly cycling / bad start device / weak compressor, condenser fan slow or not cycling...should be on anytime compressor is running. Some of these items can be visually checked, some require advanced knowledge and a multimeter for test. Be careful of live voltage and sharp edges.

My Whirlpool side by side fridge and freezer not working


Most likely, if you can hear the compressor running, the fan inside the freezer is not working. When the compressor is running, open the freezer and listen for the fan running. If you don't hear it, locate it and, with a voltmeter, test for voltage across the terminals. If you have voltage present, replace the fan. You can buy replacement fans at a local appliance parts store, internet parts suppliers, even ebay.

My Fan in the back of freezer is not working?


You need to have a voltage tester on the fan terminals. if power is shown and motor doesnt turn, then fan must be replaced. If no power is shown, make sure you press the button on top of the door frame. basically, if door isnt closed, fan wont work.(This is referring to the freezer fan inside the cooling cabinet). If its the fan next to the compressor you are referring to, it must run at all times while the compressor is on. If not, replace it.
