  • Why is my Whirlpool refrigerator compressor not working?
  • The compressor is one of the most critical parts of the refrigerator. If your Whirlpool refrigerator compressor is not working, it won't provide the right cooling to preserve your groceries. It is probably caused by a high voltage power surge, refrigerant problems, dirty coils, or general wear and tear.
  • What to do when my Whirlpool refrigerator is leaking water?
  • Whirlpool refrigerator leaking water from the bottom may be due to a damaged drain pan. While the condenser fan helps any accumulated water evaporate, cracks or holes will cause pan leaks before the water has a chance to dissipate. Clogs can also cause leakage.
  • Why is my Whirlpool refrigerator water tray overflowing?
  • A clogged or cracked defrost drain tube could cause your Whirlpool refrigerator water tray to overflow. Excessive frost caused by a leaking door seal can also cause the defrost drain pan to overflow. If you see the refrigerator drain pan full of water overflowing, check the door gaskets and replace them if damaged.
  • Why is my Whirlpool refrigerator making noise?
  • If your Whirlpool refrigerator is making noise, it could be caused by a faulty condenser fan motor. If too much dirt accumulates in and around the fan blades, it prevents the fan from working properly. The same is true with dirty condenser coils; if they are clogged, the condenser won't work properly, and your refrigerator will run loudly.
  • What to do with my Whirlpool refrigerator frost buildup?
  • Whirlpool refrigerator frost buildup is likely to happen if the door is left open for a long period. It allows excess humidity to enter the refrigerator and freezer sections. Make sure the door closes completely and is not blocked by something between the door gasket and cabinet. Scrape excess ice on your fridge and check if your door gasket is leak-free.
  • Why is my Whirlpool wine cooler not cooling?
  • If your Whirlpool wine cooler is not cooling, it may be due to a broken evaporator. This element also has a fan, which may become dirty or blocked. To fix the problem, clean up any debris around the fan or component itself.
  • Why is my Whirlpool wine cooler compressor not working?
  • Most wine coolers have compressors, which work just like food refrigerators. If the Whirlpool wine cooler compressor isn't working, it might have problems with its refrigerant, power supply, or coils. Hire a technician to help get your wine cooler working again at optimal performance.
  • How to fix a Whirlpool wine cooler making noise?
  • Take a plastic drinking straw and force it into the fan assembly to stop the fan. Stop each fan, 1-by-1, until you locate the fan that caused the Whirlpool wine cooler to make noise. Keep in mind that it could be either an internal fan or an exhausting fan near the condenser in the back of the unit.
  • What to do when I have Whirlpool wine cooler door hinge issues?
  • If the door doesn't close, you may have Whirlpool wine cooler door hinge issues. Check that no debris is blocking them or that the plastic spacers are not worn or deformed. Should the door look like it's not hanging properly, the hinges may have come out of alignment or have worn down.
  • Why is my Whirlpool wine cooler condenser coils need cleaning?
  • When your Whirlpool wine cooler condenser coils need cleaning, you can do it with a piece of cloth and vacuum. Condenser coils are located on the back of the fridge or across the bottom. These coils cool and condense the refrigerant. When the coils are clogged with dirt and dust, they can't efficiently release heat.
  • Why is my Whirlpool stove/cooktop/range igniter not working?
  • If the igniter glows for more than 90 seconds without igniting the gas flame, this indicates that the igniter is too weak to open the valve. If the Whirlpool stove/cooktop/range igniter is not working, replace it. Contact a certified technician to help replace your igniter.
  • Why does my Whirlpool stove/cooktop/range gas burner won't ignite?
  • If your Whirlpool stove/cooktop/range gas burners don't ignite, moisture in the burner head's ports can be to blame, especially after a spill or recent cleaning. A sign that moisture could be the culprit is your gas stove clicking but not lighting. Allowing more time for the burner heads to dry should solve the problem.
  • Why is my Whirlpool stove/cooktop/range heating element not working?
  • Suppose your Whirlpool stove/cooktop/range heating element is not working when the switch is defective. If there is another element of the same size on the stove, try switching the elements. If the surface element still doesn't work, the surface element switch is likely defective.
  • How do you fix Whirlpool stove/cooktop/range knob problems?
  • Remove and wash the knobs thoroughly. Use a small brush to clean hard-to-reach spots on the knob. If you have cracks on your knob, you can fix it with glue. If you want to replace your knob with a new one, contact a technician to help. Solve your Whirlpool stove/cooktop/range knob problems today!
  • What to do with my Whirlpool stove/cooktop/range electrical wiring issues?
  • A problem in your wiring can cause your oven to not get the power it needs to operate. If your Whirlpool stove/cooktop/range has electrical wiring issues, be sure to let a certified technician handle the electrical repairs. An appliance technician will sort out your electrical wiring issues and get the electricals in place.
  • Why is my Whirlpool dishwasher making noise?
  • If your Whirlpool dishwasher is making noise, you could have a damaged part in it. If one or more of the impeller blades is broken, the dishwasher will make noise. In addition, if the impeller is damaged, warped, or bent, it can scape against the pump housing.
  • Why is my Whirlpool dishwasher leaking water?
  •  If the water inlet valve is stuck open, the dishwasher will continue to fill with water until your Whirlpool dishwasher is leaking water. If the water inlet valve is at fault, replace it. Water inlet valves are not repairable. If the valve is defective, you must replace it.
  • How do I clean my Whirlpool dishwasher clogged water inlet valve?
  • If you have a Whirlpool dishwasher clogged water inlet valve, locate the solenoid valve, remove the inlet hose, and unscrew the brass angle fitting. Loosen the inlet hose, and pull the hose away from the valve. Pop the screen out with a pick or small screwdriver, and clean or replace it.
  • How to realign Whirlpool dishwasher door hinge issues?
  • When you have Whirlpool dishwasher door hinge issues, open the door slightly, lift it, and move it back onto both hinges. When the door properly seats into place, you will hear a loud click. The door should now open and close freely.
  • What to do with my Whirlpool dishwasher blocked drain line?
  • If you've cleaned your filter and the dishwasher is still not draining properly, you may have a Whirlpool dishwasher blocked drain line. Check your drain valve. If it's stuck in place, that means the valve's electrical components are probably burned out, and it needs to be replaced.
