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

Dispenser door


If the dispenser door is opening, then it is working properly. You have some kind of problem during the wash causing the soap to not wash out of thye dispenser. Either the pump is clogged or not pumping for some reason, there is not enough water coming into the unit or it is draining for some reason, or the water is sudsing up for some reason, usually rinse aid leaking into the water.

Start a wash cycle and let it fill completely with water then open the door and see how much water is in the tub. It should be just under the heater.
If it is ok, let it wash a few minutes then check it again to see if there are a lot of suds. If so, there is usually a leak in the dispenser.
Post back and let me know what you find.
Thanks/Mike

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.

Ensure that the filter is correctly installed.

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.

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.

Leak


It sounds like you have a leak somewhere around the door bellow. This is the rubber boot that seals the wash tub to the door frame. Pull the folds back and inspect around the entire perimeter of the rubber. You could have a small rip or tear somewhere. There are a series of small holes in the bottom of the bellow that are supposed to be there. This is the allow any standing water to drain back into the wash tub. If you cannot find any obvious signs of leaks, remove the lower panel under the door. This is accomplished by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Start the washer on a normal wash and watch for any leaks. If the door bellow leaks, the front counterweight (usually a concrete block) will begin to get wet and drip. This could also be an indication of the bellow clamp around the wash tub being loose. If the leak starts to pool under the washer and run out the front, this is usually an indication of a drain pump leak or drain line leak. Please inspect the washer with the panel removed and the washer on a load and post back and let me know. Go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature for a quicker response. I hope this helps you.

PS One other item. On the left hand side of the door bellow is the a dispenser tube that penetrates through the bellow and allows water to enter the wash tub. Sometimes the dispenser tube is not seated all the way into the rubber (should be seated past the flange) and it will dispense water behind the rubber instead of into the wash tub. Just something else to consider...

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.
