Whirlpool front panel dead but cooling

Hi, I own a 2yr old Side by side Whirlpool gold model GS6NBEXRS00. The unit seems to be cooling, but now the front panel is dead. No lights or anything. also the inside LED display for ref/freezer temp settings go out after about 1-2 minutes after plugging the fridge back into the wall.
Here's what happened to case this: I had the front panel off to work on the ice dispenser motor. To get to the motor, I had removed the Dispenser Core Control board (behind the front panel). I plugged it back in and all worked, except I didn't have the board set in the right place, so i unhooked once again to get the mounting tabs alighed When I reinstalled the second time, I believe I reveresed plug 6 and plug 7 (since they are the same 3 prong plug right next to eachother). Then nothing worked on the front panel. I unplugged the fridge and realized what I had done, so I plugged up P6 & 7 correctly, let the unit sit for about 10 minute, and plugged back in. Now it cools, but nothing works on the front panel. did I mess up something in the Dispenser Core Control board? Thanks for any help!

Whirlpool Gold GD5SHAXLQ02- Serial number SP3131657 just stopped cooling. Neither the fridge and freezer seems to be cooling. This unitl is about 7 years old.


Hi!!

Check
temp. control knobs,
Small fan in freezer
Remove freezer back panel (where the little fan is) and check for iced evaporator coil, if so, unplug unit and use a heat gun or hair dryer to melt ice, make sure the air duct going to the fridge is clear. Once this is done, restart unit.

If evaporator is not covered w/ice, then you may have a freon leak, Call a Service Center to get a repair estimate.

Don't forget to rate this post!! Good Luck

Front ice/water despensor not working


Try looking for a child safety switch that can sometimes be found hidden up in the dispenser, depending on the model. It will be a switch that looks like it doesn't do anything.
If this can't be found then you may have a wiring problem which would require a service call.

Don't let them tell you that the problem is related to "sulfur" in your water. It's a scam so that they don't have to repair the problem. The actual problem is that they don't use quality parts to build these units anylonger.

Oven door locked and dead panel


TRY UNPLUGGIN THE RANGE FOR FIVE MINUTES AND THEN PLUGGING IT BACK IN. IF IT DOESN'T RESET AND UNLOCK, YOU COULD HAVE EITHER A BAD OVEN SENSOR OR BAD CONTROL(CLOCK). IF YOU ARE A DO IT YOURSELFER, YOU COULD BUY A NEW OVEN SENSOR, REMOVE THE BACK PANEL FROM THE RANGE(THE LARGER LOWER PANEL) FIND THE SMALL CONNECTOR PLUG THAT COMES THROUGH THE BACK WALL. IT HAS ONLY TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. DISCONNECT THE OLD SENSOR AT THAT POINT AND CONNECT THE NEW SENSOR. IF THE OLD SENSOR IS BAD, THE DOOR WILL UNLOCK AND YOU CAN THEN REPLACE THE BAD SENSOR
THROUGH THE OVEN OPENING.
