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

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

Whats it mean? I cant work on it myself

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

OK the unit is likely running low on freon or out of freon, check and make sure the condenser is clean. If it is then remove the back panel inside the freezer section and check the evaporator coil. If only part of it is frosted and not the whole thing, the rest being bare aluminum then you have a freon leak. If that is the case the fix is too expensive for the unit and I would start looking for a new one. Check that out and see what you find and get back to me!
