I have a Whirlpool refrigerator that leaks water into the cool section which I assume is because of a stopped up or partially blocked drain from the automatic defrost from the freezer. It is empty now (between tenants) and thus a good time to repair the drain or other repair if I am wrong. I have looked at it and do not see an obvious location or access to it. I am a licensed air conditioning contractor and thus am fairly good at this sort of thing. Can you advise and more specifically attach a
It is an excellent time to attempt the repair. While I don't have a picture indicating the drain tube location, I can say with some certainty that it starts at the back center of the freezer section and runs down the back outside wall of the unit, en ...
We have a Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator
For the past year water drains down out of the freezer onto the upper shelf in the refrigerator. I looked at the drain line in the freezer and it is frozen solid.
Now the refrigerator section is not cooling. The freezer is cold and the ice maker works but water is not draining down onto the upper shelf in the refrigerator.
I just cleaned the coils but that did not help.
What could the problem be?

We have a Whirlpool top-freezer refrigerator model number ET1PHKXPT01. We have owned it for 5 1/2 years. The drain from the freezer compartment freezes and ice backs up onto the floor of the freezer. We have thawed it out twice in the past 5 years, the most recent time 3 weeks ago and now it is frozen again. As we prepare to defrost it the third time I am wondering if we should use a copper wire placed down the drain and attached to the defrost coil as our solution? Or could this be a mecha

Whirlpool refrigerator model et1chmxkq05 having problem with water dripping from freezer into refrigerator. emptied freezer looked for drain hole, but did not see one. please help
I have two whirlpool refrigerators. Both have the same problem. The defrost drain and drain pan under the evaporator coil freeze. Then the defrost cycle causes water to drip down into the frig section. At that point I have to remove the ice maker and evapoator cover to access the frozen drain pan. After getting the ice to thaw all the way down in the drain hole, I get to put it back together and reload the freezer. Do you have any solutions for this evident design flaw. I had bought the second r

I have a Whirlpool bottom freezer refrigerator...GB2FHDXWS04. Water is leaking from somewhere and forming a layer of ice on the floor of the freezer.

My refrigerator is too cold so I traced the problem to the freezer (I have a whirlpool top freezer). I found coffee beans imbedded in ice under the liner in the freezer. I used a hair dryer to remove all the ice. There is a hole in the metal pan under the evaporator. Is it a drain and if so, where does it go?

I have an 8 year old GE Profile Side by Side TPX24PB Refrig that is leaking water in the freezer, but not the refrigerator. There is a slab of ice on the freezer floor, eventually water runs onto the kitchen floor. Anyone else have/had this problem? What is the fix? Also, does anyone know where the drain line is located-possibly it is clogged????
The drain is clogged. Remove the bottom bin out of the freezer. Once done you should see a trough at the back. This trough will be filled with ice, remvoe the ice. Then you have to clear the drain. The best way I know of to do this is to force hot wa ...

I have a Whirlpool Gold refrigerator, built in 2000, that has a freezer over the fridge. On the inside of the fridge, near the ducts that go to the freezer, ice is continually forming and melting, flooding the bottom of the fridge. I think the drain pipe from the compressor may be clogged, since the pan is bone dry. I tried to check for a clog by blasting compressed air and by sticking a hanger up the line, but don't think I helped it at all. What do you think I should do?
