Customer Question
I recently purchase a...

I recently purchase a Whrilpool self cleaning hidden water bottle water cooler. Model 8LIECH-SC-SSS-SL-W. The led indicator light is flashing and the water is not getting cold. I let it sit overnight and it has ample space from wall. I know when the cold water led stops flashing the water is cold but it has never stopped and water is not cold.

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

I bought it off a auction site and got it yesterday.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

It looks to be a return maybe but it is like new.

Model No: 8LIECH-SC-SSS-5L-W. Water is not getting cold and led light is flashing. I know that when it stops flashing the water is supposed to be cold. Unit has had ample time to get cold as I left it on overnight.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

the manufacture recommend 24 hours for temperature to level out.

If it has not been 24 hours , wait until then to see if you still have the issue.

Do you purchase the unit was is or did it have a warranty with it?
