Yes this is a common problem.  However, you don't have to replace the whole door.  They were wrong.  Whirlpool makes a fix kit for this.  You can get it at http://www3.sears.com/.  The part # is 8201649 and cost is $42.99.  The description will say door chute.  It is a door mechanism assembly.  It is fairly easy to install and comes with instructions.  Hope this helps.

ME TOO !!!!! THE COMPRESSOR RUBBER MOUNTING BUSHINGS ARE LIKELY WORN OR LOOSE. THE HARMONICS OF GAS PRESSURE "HAMMERING" ARE CAUSING IT TO SHAKE.
THIS IS WHAT I DID: UNPLUG THE FRIGE, AND REMOVED THE CARDBOARD PANEL ON BACK. THE COMPRESSOR IS A GALLON SIZED BLACK GLOBE SHAPED UNIT. IT HAS 4 RUBBER MOUNTING BUSHINGS/FEET. SHIFT OR WIGGLE THE COMPRESSOR AROUND SOME AND THEN TIGHTEN BUSHINGS WITH 7/16" (11 MM) WRENCH UNTIL IT GETS TIGHTER. YOU MIGHT NEED TO REPEAT UNTIL YOU FIND A QUIET/SWEET SPOT . WHILE YOU ARE DOWN THERE, ALSO REMOVE THE FRONT COVER AND CLEAN THE DUST OFF OF THE COILS WITH A VACUUM. WATCH OUT FOR SHARP METAL EDGES AND HOT COILS WHILE WORKING. .... DOUG

after replacing filter run aprox 1/2 gal of water to clear air and remember to reset filter monitor according to your owners manual

Check the start capacitor on the compressor and the thermal cutoff switch. It is where the wires connect to the compressor.

Hi,

Make sure the filter is pushed in all the way, this only happens when the filter is not installed all the way.

As far as I'm aware, refrigerator doors don't have auto locks on them. What you're describing sounds like the door has a fantastic seal from a temperature change between the inside of the fridge and the room around it. When there is a drastic change, (usually warm) the refrigerator seal will seem to stick. This will wear off over time, or when the temperature changes.

Are you sure the model number is ED5VHGXM? If model number is correct I believe the problem is related to a relay on the=> 4388932 Defrost Control Board
3_10_2013_10_29_33_pm.jpg

You can locate this board inside the control panel in your fresh food compartment. Here is a parts manual. ED5VHGXM Parts Manual

The solenoid on the water inlet valve is not closing all the way. replace the valve and it will be as good as new. Here is the part to order.


The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

The only other thing it could be is that there is no water coming out of wall. to the ref.
Unless you have an electronic card thats burned.

Go here to look up your fridge and card with your model no. on their diagram

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.

if the compressor is running and it's not cooling it sounds like you have a leak in the sealed system.you can remove the inside back wall of the freezer and look at the evap coil.if there's ice just on top or ice pattern isn't covering the whole coil then you have a freeon leak in the sealed system.if the compressor is hot it sounds like it's running,i did find the compressor hot,changed out the start device and it did run again but the compressor was clicking,if you're positive the compressor is running most likely you have a leak in the system and it would be to much to fix.part number for the start device is 8201786 and it's around 55 dollars.
