Hello All.
I would like to add my findings.
My fridge WBM46LS of 11 years started behaving exactly as the OP described. I tried all the suggestions regarding holding buttons, power off etc to no avail.
I even found an online manual here
https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/view/18647891/whirlpool-uk-refrigerator-models-wbm35lw-wbm35ls-/5
But that did not address the problem at all.
So I went back to someones suggestion about the Potency Module.
I pulled the fridge out and unscrewed the cover at the bottom left to get access to the Potency module.(Red plastic box)
Without even pulling it open I could smell the burnt electronics.
I opened up the case and found a scorch mark next to the big capacitor on the circuit board.
So far, so good.
Given that a new fridge of the same size/style is about $1300 I pursued the spare part.
I then tracked down a supplier in Melbourne with a new board/module for $148.50. P# WPP326020913
Plugged in the new board in and fired up the fridge and its working just like new.
So I am happy now that a perfectly good fridge is up and working again.

My whirlpool fridge is beeping door open. About a year after buying it the ice machine stopped. Then it began to build up ice in the bottom of the freezer and leak on the floor. Now it is beeping door open...


It has a defrost problem.
as for the door open it and look carefully round the door and you will see the door switch press it down and see if the light will go off.
if it doesn't turn off the lights then u should have a bad switch.
but if yes then and the beep sound keep beeping then try turning the frige off for about 6hours with the doors all open and after the 6hours plug it back on.

Fridge & freezer lights and the water display light beep and flash 10-12 times every few hours. Simultaneously a fan motor starts and stops. Any one know what needs to be done to remedy this?


Fridge keeps beeping or buzzing: The following is for Frigidaire models but others can be addressed similarly.

Several Frigidaire refrigerator models have an electronic control panel on the freezer door the owner can use to adjust the internal temperature, dispense ice and water and receive notification about issues such as the need to replace a water filter. The refrigerators also emit a beep for various actions and as an occasional alarm. Determining what causes the beeps necessitates some troubleshooting.
Temperature Controls ·A Frigidaire refrigerator's display panel blinks when the control panel is touched to set temperature controls. After pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, press the arrow buttons within five seconds to increase or decrease the desired temperature. If you do not press the arrow buttons within five seconds after pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, the refrigerator beeps to indicate the current setting will stay in place.

Door Open ·When you leave the refrigerator or freezer door open, the refrigerator beeps. Also, the "Door Ajar" indicator illuminates on the appliance's display panel. Shutting the door and pressing "Alarm Reset" stops the beeping and turns off the "Door Ajar" indicator light.
·The Frigidaire refrigerator has a control lock feature that prevents use of its control panel or dispensers when the unit is locked. When the control lock is active, a beep sounds when a keypad or dispenser is pressed. Release the control lock by pressing the "Control Lock" icon for three seconds. A beep will sound, and the icon's light will go out.
Power Reset ·A power reset is occasionally necessary if the Frigidaire refrigerator's control panel does not work normally or a reset function on the keypad does not work. A power reset involves disconnecting power to the refrigerator by unplugging its power cord from the electrical outlet, waiting 30 seconds and plugging the power cord back into the electrical outlet. When the control panel resets, a beep sounds. If the refrigerator beeps even after a power reset and the beeps' source is not known, contact Frigidaire.
