Here is a link to the page in the owners manual depicting the process:
https://www.manualslib.com/manual/722607/Whirlpool-Refrigerator.html?page=22#manual

Which from the keypad touch the options and lock together for 3 seconds, a "1 cup" will display, get a measuring cup and locate the 8 ounce or 1 cup mark, place the empty cup under the water dispenser, press the water dispense paddle to fill the cup to the 8 ounce or 1 cup mark, (if you accidentally overfill, touch the back/ice type button, empty cup, and start process over), when cup is at the 8oz/1 cup mark stop filling and touch the measured fill button. You can pour out the water from the cup and test to see if water dispenser is calibrated now (should be as this works for my whirlpool refrigerator, if not attempt process again)

Most ice makers in domestic refrigerators make a noise when filling ice containers and when "dropping" ice cubes into ice container. If working OK then this is possibly the noise as described above.

same common answer.
freezer door seals or door not closing.
fridge gets cooled from freezer.
not so common, control board, compressor.
control board may have bad capacitors (bulging)
compressor may be better to replace refrig

1st = try to determine why freezer is not freezing.
fridge is cooled from freezer.
water may not be flowing because freezer is not cold enough to make ice.

Verify freezer door is closing and seals are sealing. If you slam the fridge door closed and the freezer door moves there is a problem.

water filter charcoal filer, vegy filter???
water filter is normally in the ceiling on the right side. Pull down the door, pull out the filter, put in new one, close door.
charcoal filter top center behind a door with slots.
vegy filter in one of the vegy drawers - usually rear, but owner sets location.

WHIRLPOOL WRF40 Solution to this problem!!! very easy ----I assume you have a problem with the control board switching on and of erratic when you pass setting 3 on the LED display, the designers of this fridge left the calculator at home that day, ask a technician to replace the Resistors 5, 6 & 7 (330 OHM 1/4 watt) on your electronic control board with 680 OHM 1/4 watt. This would solve the problems with this board, the LEDs will not be as bright as they were but still highly visible. Questions? deon@electro-web.co.za
