Whirlpool gold refrigerator icemaker leaking water

Please help. My icemaker is leaking inside my refrigerator. At first it was dripping water into the ice box and freezing and we would have to pull it out cut the ice and dump it out every week. Now it has progressed to leaking out of the ice despenser. Thank you for your time. Do you have a clue as to what I can do to fix this?

    Mine started leaking out of the ice dispenser and now occassionally leaks out of the edge of the water/ice dispenser unit (seam). Seems like the flap to the ice dispenser might be broken (not sealing) and letting air in to create ice buildup.

    I have the same problem. my whirlpool gold refrig is leaking out the ice despenser on the door and is building up inside the freezer. Looks like snow, since its not hard ice its hard to pinpoint where the leak might be. Sounds like a defect. perhaps there is 'recall' for th is problem. Any news or ideas

Hi there,

sounds like the ice or water actuator or paddle is broken. purchase a new paddle and replace it.

the reason you have leak is because you have warm air entering through the broken part into the freezer.

can you provide me with the model # and i will send you a part breakdown.

Thanks, Squishy2! I have a Whirlpool Gold Conquest. I'll check the model number when I get home tonight. Do you think this is a job for a non-professional?

SOURCE: whirlpool gold refrigerator icemaker leaking water

Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.

My "Whirlpool Gold" Refrigerator's interior water dispenser was dripping pretty badly. I just replaced the inlet valve and the drip is MUCH slower but it's still there (1 drip every ~10 minutes). Wha


Perhaps some air bubbles were trapped in the water line during the repair. Try running water thru the line for a good amount of time and that may help to relieve the line of any air bubbles.

I have a whirlpool imperial refrigerator; freezer on top; with icemaker....water is leaking from the freezer section down onto top shelf in refrigerator, near back, any help??


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit.... Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator unit, so you need to clear that contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the top shelf in the refrigerator compartment. This is all you need to do....


Best of Luck,


Please do Rate the solution, if you feel that this helps you,


Concerned.

Whirlpool Gold refrigerator water leaking


If it's flooding, it's NOT the drain pan. It's probably the water valve has gotten stuck in the open position. Hope this helps!

Water leaking from icemaker on outside


If this is your water dispenser leaking
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.
