Question about Whirlpool ED5SHAXM Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Our Whirlpool side by side has moisture on the glass shelves on the refrigerator side.

It has been sitting unused in our garage for a year. We did not buy it new.
We got it from a neighbor. It is four years old. I notice on the front at the
bottom is a large black knob that doesn't turn.

    The message I sent you was mangled somehow.

    The reason I wrote was "Our Whirlpool side by side has moisture

    on the glass shelves". I thought the black knob on the front might have something to with that. We seem to have a moisture

    problem maybe because it set in our garage unused for a year.

    Thank you for the info on the black knob. Do you have any

    suggestions for the moisture proiblem.

ngfam1 At your service!

It will turn 1/4 turn and then pull it out and the water filter comes out to replace this internal water filter!
No the water will not leak out or rush out when you remove it!
Just do not leave it out! Turns counter clockwise with force 1/4 turn or so!!

Bless You ngafm1

    How much moisture is on the shelves?
    Just water vapor,that's not worth wiping up from the glass or dripping water?
    My fridge has some moisture on the shelves too!
    More in the summer because it's hot!
    That does not concern me! ?????
    My guess is someone in your house is a perfectionist or has a cleanliness, obsession like my motherinlaw!!!!!!!!!!!

    Our fridge works for 18 years with no repairs!I
    AM HAPPY !
    And the next time I will be buying the same fridge again!
    It's a 22 Cu. FT. Amana Bottom freezer!

Subzer 690 side byside fridge .after changing new evaporator it started moister in the fridge like fogy glass shelves . What you think is wrong?thanks

Evaporator should be taking the moisture out of the refrigerator. Examples are defrost drain blockage, door seals damaged or improper refrigerant charge. Moisture in sealed system can also affect evaporators removal of moisture and cooling. If you have questions please let me know, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

Moving a whirlpool side-by-side

just do not crush any cooling lines in the rear of it.
I would put foam rubber or styro foam in the bottom around the compressor if it is a very bumpy ride.
When you get it to it's location, do not plug it in until it sits upright at least overnight so the freon can settle.
