My Whirlpool refrigerator ED2GVEXVD01 has the filter indicatror coonstantly flashing, and the compressor is constantly running. The freezer is cold but the fridge compartment is not. I suspect the control board to be the problem. It is listed in the Whirlpool parts drawing as "Control Board Assembly, Defrost" and P/N W10366605. Your website crosses to P/N AP4981837. Are they plug to plug compatable? Am I on the right track? Big difference in price.
ANSWER Hello Dave,
This unit has a defrost timer, not a control board. This unit either has a bad diffuser/damper or the evaporator fan motor has failed. If you hear the freezer fan when you open the door, the evaporator fan motor is good. I would check for a frost build-up on the back freezer wall. If there is no frost, you probably have a sealed system issue. If there is frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment, the unit is experiencing a defrost problem. Let us know what you find and we will go further in that direction.
