Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker

1 Answer

Whirlpool 21 CF has from day one leaked a little when water is dispensed. I went under the door edge and wiggled the connector to tighten it. I loosened it of course, and made the leak worse. What do I need to do to fix this? Can the connector itself be replaced without dumping more water on the floor?

Water leaking from door when cold water dispenser being used


Hello Frank,
The line that runs from under the freezer door and connects to the dispenser is cracked or the connector is cracked. By removing the lower hinge cover ya should be able to see where the line connects to the door and see if it seems to be cracked and leaking their,if that connector is good then the line inside of the door is leaking..in some cases depending on brand the line is easily replacable without having to dis-assamble the entire door

Hi, I just found a leak in the back of the fridge from the green water line. Is it something I can fix easily or should I have an expert take a look?


If water appears to be leaking from the back of the refrigerator, check that the water line from the household water supply to the refrigerator is not damaged or cracked. Check all connections that are accessible such as the connection at the supply valve and the connection point of the supply tubing onto the back of the refrigerator. Check that the tubing is firmly inserted into all fittings and all fittings are tightened.

Leaking from under the door

On exterior dispenser models, if water appears to be leaking from under the refrigerator door, look and feel under the door to ensure the water connection to the dispenser is properly done. Firmly push the water tubes into the fitting.

NOTE: This connection was disconnected if the doors were removed during installation or if the door swing was reversed.

My GE Profile model psc23sgnabs leaks water from under the water & ice dispenser recess trim moulding. Is there any way to get the freezer door apart to replace water hose inside the door? There are...


No, the door is foamed together.
Remove small drip catch at bottom of dispenser area. Use silicone to seal recess along front edge and the two front corners. That should prevent water from getting under the door trim.

Hello, lost water in the house, now when came back on, water dispensor has a slow drip... the dispensor handle seems to be working fine... it dispenses water when pressed.. doesn't seem to stay...


If you take the bottom grill off the front of the appliance -1x Philips screw either side- under the freezer door you will see where the water pipe goes through the hinge. follow that pipe back towards the underneath of the machine and you should come across a push-fit connector.

The pipe leading through the freezer door from the connector, and blow down it, re-fit, press dispenser paddle to allow to flow. This stops the drip in 9/10 instances.

If not you may need to have someone check the water valve for slight blockage.

Leak from refrigerator bottom when dispensing water


Good day,
The water supply starts at the dispenser, runs thru the door to the door's bottom where it connects to a swivel connector.
From there it travels under the machine and back into the fresh food compartment to a reservoir located behind the crispers where it is chilled.
It comes back out and travels to the filter system if you have one, and from there to the water valve located on the back rear of the machine.

One of the plastic lines or a fittings is leaking.
It's a look-see repair. Should be one person drawing water, while a second should be looking with a flashlight.

Water dispenser just quit putting out water one day whirlpool refriderator


Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws
OR
disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad.

LG Fridge Freezer display has CF error code


Turns out a CF ER is a Compressor Fan problem.
Had a look and the fan was not turning, although it spins freely. Apparently it's a 3 phase 12v fan. I was able to get a resistance measurement across it but didn't know what to expect.
This also explains why it seemed a bit quieter and why the water is a bit warmer sometimes. The valve for the water dispenser is right beside the fan and it's getting pretty hot in there at the moment.

Water leak from dispenser


The reservoir inside has to be replaced. After numerous calls to LG, I finally got the LG Mobile Service Tech to service it, and the water reservoir has been completely redesigned....can you say "design flaw?" Now, since the new "tube" has replaced the "reservoir," I have little green things floating in my filtered water! I hate LG products.
