Customer Question
I moved into a...

I moved into a five year old home with a new whirlpool side by side refrigerator. I received no information; I do not even know the model. I found a flip-out cover over something at the bottom of the freezer door. What is it? It will not close.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I would estimate that the refrigerator is about one year old. I do not know the model. It has water and ice in the door. I wonder if it could be something to do with that?

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

There is nothing wrong with it. A flip out cover opened for some reason. I do not know what it is

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

I have told you all that I know!

The model number is ***** on a sticker inside the refrigerator section behind one of the salad box or on the side wall towards the top.

Also are you able to post a picture of the cover you see?
