The rear panel is not removable. you need to clean the drain from inside the freezer compartment.

  • 1 remove food from freezer
  • 2 remove shelving and icemaker if equipped
  • 3 remover rear access cover in freezer usually 2 or 3 screw
  • 4 clean ice out from underneath the coil you will uncover the drain hole
  • 5 force hot water thru drain hole i use a turkey baster or large syringe
  • 6 reassemble in reverse order.
if you have any further questions please ask here and I'll be glad to assist any way I can. thanks Peyton

Hi there
I assume that you have made sure how to fasten the door handle.
I would try to find out how and on what the handle sits and even tke the screw driver in my hand and see if it helps to put it to use.
Good luck

Need a wireing diagram for whirlpool refridge ET18PKXWN10


The diagram is usually located in a pouch you can see when you remove the bottom vent. It has all sorts of service information, including a wiring diagram. Otherwise whirpool.com may have it.

Whirlpool side by side (106.56692501). Refrig was not cooling but freezer is. Freezer is slowly heating up though. Unit is still running. It just isn't blowing air into the refrigerator.


You have ice in freezer fins. You need to remove back panel inside of freezer, melt all the ice replace panel, plug refridge back in. The ice causes bad airflow to the refridge side, causing to heat up.

FREezer works fine,frig will not go less than 40 degrees and unit never cuts off


the problem is the freezer drain is plugged up. when the fridge goes into defrost,the water that is suppose to drain out has no where to go. so it refreezes . that ice has plugged up the blend air vents between the freezer & the fridge.
1st put your food in a cooler. Unplug the refridge.
(you may want to take pictures as you go.for the reassembling)
open up the freezer, remove the rear panel, & the bottom panel (if possible)
you will see the coils, underneith the coils you will see an metal tray. it will probly have ice on it.
with a blow dryer, heat the ice till you see the drain . now that drain has to be cleaned out.
that drain runs down to the bottom of refridge into a drain pan. with a wet vac , attach it to the drain tube, until you fell suction in the freezer. small amounts of hot water does help.
( it usually gets plugged up from bugs)

next , open the fridge ,on the ceiling of the fridge.there will be a plastic cover (most models) remove the cover carefully. usually there are 2 passiges from the freezer to the fridge. that is where the cold air drops into the fridge. there will probally be ice in these passages, which has to be removed.(be careful with the stirofoam)

once you have cleaned out all the ice ,reinstall all those pieces.
plug back in the refridge.It will tak a day for it to get cold again.( hint get 2 bags of ice to help speed up the cooling down process)

Smell coming from the refrigerator


I would assume you have a bad self defrosting motor. This motor generally is used to cycle heat at certain points to keep the unit from allowing the condansation from freezing inside the refridg. I am assuning the smell is this motor heating up. Should the motor quit, it is normally not a fire hazard but should be taken care of. You'll need to remove the back panel of the refridg and you'll see the minuture motor and probably hear is making noise. Always be sure to unplug the refridg before opening the back panel or any service to prevent shock. Good luck

Frigidaire side by side refridge


pull the kick plate off under the doors. if you look in behind the kick plate youll see alot of dust build up. this area needs to be cleaned once a year to keep air flowing properly over the condenser coils. if the dust build up is minimal then remove back panel of refrigerator and make sure the fan is running behind the refrigerator. if not, or if running real slow replace the fan motor. the heat is the because the condenser is getting too hot. it needs to be fix or the compressor life will be greatly shortend
