Question about Whirlpool ET0WSRXML Top Freezer Refrigerator
Mother in Law has a Whirlpool fridge/freezer and is having constant water inside the fridge and running onto the floor. How do we stop this or is it a techie problem
Check to see if the run-off tube at the back is plugged.
I dont know how old the fridge is - but if it a couple years old check at the back or the fridge - there should be a tube running down the back of the fridge down into the bottom tray. This tube funnels water from the freezer (condensation, or water from the defrost) down onto the tray holding the compressor where it evaporates with help from the heat off the compressor. Sometimes this tube can get plugged up with some scum or mineral deposits, causing the built up water to drain from inside the fridge.
The tube shouldn't be too hard to remove and clean out with some hot water and pipe cleaners. Had the same issue on on a GE fridge last year.
Hope this helps!
