Whirlpool defrost bimetal
« on: August 02, 2010, 05:39:41 PM »
It seems like on many Whirlpool top freezer models, such as the model referenced, the part list and diagram do not show the defrost bimetal thermostat.    Is there a generic or universal part which subs in?

Model ET6WSKXKQ00

Your refrigerator shows the thermostat with the whole freezer wire harness for 50 bucks. I would splice in a WR50X50 thermostat kit for 15 bucks.
