Open Question

Wwe have a Whirlpood Ultraease Pluswater filtration system fridge. Model number ED22QF. The water and the ice is not currently hooked up.

What would you suggust I do to fix this issue.? What is the cardboard backing or coverplate (not the plastic one on the bottom front) utilized for?

SOURCE: Fridge ice accumulation inside and water dripping outside

Hi, Are you getting ice build up in the freezer side as well? There is a air shuttle between the fresh food side and the freezer side. thwater might be getting in the freshfood side from there. Look at the bottom rear panel in the freezer for ice build up. Ig=f there is ice, you will need to get to the drain from inside the freezer and check for blockage.
Please let me know if I can help you further.

SOURCE: After it defrosts at night, water on floor, ice cubes melted.

I didn't fix it yet, but I found another website that provides MUCH more educational information without charging for it. So I now have a much better idea of what the solution might be, and some things to try.

SOURCE: Filter for UltraEase water filtration system?

This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning water lines etc., it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

How to remove icemaker from whrilpool ultraease refridgerator


I had a simular problem with my Whirlpool frig--First of all I would check 1/4 inch plastic line coming from water valve up to ice maker,loosen this line & try to blow thru it -if there is an obstruction it probably is frozen inside plastic fitting at top where it goes thru cabinet & into ice maker if so you can melt by by running a very warm metal object up & inside fitting be patient, you need to both inside & outside--If this the problem,your water valve is probaly bad because of not shutting off properly causing the "drip effect" you can purchase valve on line for aprox $10.00--$25.00 Good Luck--John Morris--

Kenmore side-by-side not dispensing ice or water, the ice maker has been replaced, no water going into the tray. I cannot locate the water filter, does this model have one?


Don't know what is the model number of your fridge. 1.Need check electric water valve under the fridge. If that fridge made by GE (Kenmore just a Sears brand name and they use several others manufacturers for refrigeration), usually it's a frozen plastic water supply line inside freezer door. You could unplug fridge for 24 hours (you have to put food from freezer to other freezer).

Whirlpool ultraease refrigerator (ED7FHG) making water sounds, and drips water onto steel pan in bottom rear of freezer side. Purchased new. This is an obvious change. Problem?


You have a water leak somewhere (I'm assuming this water sound is constant). If not write me back for other possible solutions.

The only place water comes into the freezer is for an ice maker or a door water dispenser. Check around the ice maker for a leak. If there is a water dispenser in the door then check the piping to it also.

There is a drain in the bottom of the freezer compartment which is there so when the frost is melted by the defrost heaters, it has somewhere to go. This drain drains into the "drip pan" (or condensate pan) in the bottom of the unit. Here the water will sit until it is evaporated into the air.

If this helps you, please select YES to the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Water is leaking inside the refrigerator and the ice cube aren't freezing completely (cube is a hollow shell of ice)


Possibly it is because fridge is not cooling correctly(Ice cubes hollow).. Suggest proper defrost. if it is cooling partially, it shows cooling is trying to take place (Make sure before you switch on after defrost, check for proper water drainage.Water must flow to the compressor once defrosted.Take note if the fan runs correctly.

Whirlpool ultraease warm on left side, dispenses warm water


not dangerous, i would recommend vacuuming coils under and behind refrig, make sure the fan behind the unit( cooling for compressor) is running full speed. the water is probably "warmer" then usual because the waterline runs across the bottom of the refrig, which appears to be overheating as it is. this should rectify your issue
