Whirlpool Gold 27" French Door Model G!7FVCXWQ
by Walsh C.
My Whirlpool Gold 27" French Door refrigerator show that there is a MAJOR DESIGN FLAW with whirlpool refrigerators that have the ice maker in the refrigerator instead of the Freezer.
In my refrigerator (model G17FVCXWQ) the water line comes in and is routed through the top of the refrigerator where condensation occurs under the top lining. Unfortunately this is also where the wiring harness that controls the computer resides. The reason why this is a problem is that there ends up being total corrosion after 1 to 2 years not to mention large BLACK MOLD buildup.
Our local Whirlpool repairman told us that he has seen several like this in our locale. Whirlpool has no fix and does not acknowledge the problem even exists.
Do yourself a favor and seriously think twice before buying one of these fridges.
If this is the best America can produce we are in trouble. I like to think of myself as a green, environmental type of person but I am sad to say that after only 2 years my refrigerator is in the trash and Whirlpool claims it is not their problem.
Sadly it really is all of our problem.
I hope that my next fridge doesn't end up adding to the next trash heap.
