Water running down door & dispenser light always on......

Hello, my 2 year old whirlpool 'American frige' is leaking water from behind the unit on the door (not the tray). It is running down the front of the door. There isn't a lot of water but it's enough to leave an unsightly streaking on the door & a wet floor. Also got a problem with the dispenser light staying on, I've had to take the bulb out as it was heating up?? Help please. Thanks

If you trace up from the water leak it must have an origin. If it starts high level I would suspect the door not sealing allowing warm air to be chilled down cold enough to condense. If it starts around the water or ice dispenser you may have a bed connection or break in the supply lines. I am assuming this is on the freezer section. It would also account for the light as there are normally door switches for the light and fan. If you open the door on the freezer section and push on the switches you should see the light go on and off. Hope this helps, water leaks are always a pain even for engineers.

Leak in the drainage pan under frige


1. Check that the doors shut correctly. Hold each door about halfway open, then let go. If the doors don't shut completely, adjust the screw legs on the front of the refrigerator so the unit tilts back a bit. With adjustable pliers, turn each leg one revolution clockwise. Recheck the doors and, if necessary, repeat the process until they shut securely.
2. Step 2 Inspect the door gaskets. Look for debris that may keep the doors from shutting. Also check for cracks or gaps in the gaskets that could allow the cold air to seep out. If you find debris, clean the gaskets with warm, soapy water. If you find cracks or gaps, you'll need to replace the gaskets
3. Step 3 If your refrigerator is equipped with a door-frame heater that evaporates condensation, make sure the heater is turned on. The switch should be located with your other refrigerator controls.

Water is leaking from the bottom in the front left side of side by side maytag. water line is ok not leaking. can't see where it is coming from.


the water for the dispenser (ice/water dispenser in the freezer door) comes from under the frige then up thru the bottom hinge of the freezer door .. it then goes inside the door up to the dispenser .. its a plastic hose and it has to twist near the hinge each time the door is opened .. thats where it usually breaks or develops a pin hole leak .. you can replace the whole hose or just the damaged section if that easier ... since the bottom freezer.hinge where that hose comes up thru, is at the position of your leak then i suspect thats your trouble ... ..also check the condensate pan to make sure its not full .. thats a flat pan under the fridge ..you can usually get acess to it by removing the front kick panel at the bottom of the frige .. if thats full then look for a door seal leak (damaged rubber seal) ... a broken seal or open door will allow moisture to condense inside the machine ..that runs down into the condensate pan where it normally evaporates .. but a problem (like open door) will fill it up to overflow in time ....

Water dispenser not working on my whirlpool american fridge freezer ? Changed filter a week ago, is switched on but no water coming out of dispenser?


Make sure that the water filter is the right one and that it is pushed all the way in. If that is correct than There should be two solenoids located behind the fridge at the bottom one is for your ice and one for water. Unplug unit and test with an ohm meter across the two terminals if it ohms out or beeps than your solenoid is bad. If that is not it than there is a switch problem at the door.

I have a 12 year old Whirlpool side-by-side refridgerator (ed20db) with water and ice dispenser. I have not used the water dispenser for years, but for some reason when I hit the lever yesterday, it did...


you have a possible water valve that is not shutting off all the way on the water dispensing side, it has 2 coils, one for ice and one for water. the other possibility is the dispenser tank is frozen, from being too cold in the refr. section and thats causing water pressure to continue running even when not pushing the lever. let the unit warm up slighty on the refr side and see if you can get water to flow properly.
if not working after warming up, then you might have to replace the water inlet valve.

Whirlpool ultraease warm on left side, dispenses warm water


not dangerous, i would recommend vacuuming coils under and behind refrig, make sure the fan behind the unit( cooling for compressor) is running full speed. the water is probably "warmer" then usual because the waterline runs across the bottom of the refrig, which appears to be overheating as it is. this should rectify your issue
