SOURCE: water is in the bottom

That water should be draining out the hole in the evaporation compartment. The defrost drain is stopped up. Remove the service panel and get the junk out the hole and the water from defrost will drain out instead of in the bottom.

If ice is forming in the hole a neat trick to know is to run a wire from the defrost heater down in the hole a hair to keep ice from forming over the drain hole.

Ice stays in icemarker


Sounds like the heater in the ice maker to release the cubes isn't working. Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.

Hi, I have a 20.9 cf (#ET1CHK/ET1CHM). Water


I HAD THE SAME ISSUE EVERY FEW MONTHS. REMOVE THE BACK COVER IN THE FREEZER, YOU WILL SEE A SILVER TRY WITH MOST LIKELY ICE IN IT. THAW THAT ICE AND THERE IS A DRAIN HOLE IN IT. USING A HAIR DRIER GET THE TUBE TO THAW ALSO. ONCE WATER IS FLOWING TAKE A PIECE OF 12 GAUGE BARE COPPER WIRE AND SLIP IT ABOUT 18" INTO THE HOLE. WRAP THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIRE AROUND THE WIRE COIL YOU SEE WHICH IS THE DEFROSTER. WHEN IT WARMS IT WILL HEAT THE WIRE ALSO AND KEEP THE DRAIN CLEAR

Whirlpool icemaker


Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

Enter the model number on one of two websites below to get parts and diagrams for your appliance:

The icemaker stop working on my Whirlpool side by side frig


If there are ice cubes setting in the icemake waiting to be dumped then the icemaker is bad. If the icemake is dry then the water valve is bad. You have one water valve with two solenoids. One works water in the door and the other sends water to the icemaker.
