SOURCE: Maytag side by side is leaking water from the freezer sid

We also had the exact same problem with our Maytag side by side. We kept getting a small puddle down on the floor under the freezer side of the unit. There was also a giant ice block puddle that had formed on the inside bottom of the freezer compartment. We solved the problem in about an hour. First, we pulled the unit out from the wall and checked behind and underneath the unit with a flashlight. The little drip pan that collects the water was completely dry. That told us that there was a plug somewhere in the drain line. We removed all of the food and shelves inside the freezer so we could access the inside, back panel. My husband unscrewed the two bolts and removed both panels. We found the problem. The drain pan had frozen and all of the water was overflowing inside the freezer compartment and ultimately out onto our floor. There was also a giant snowball around all of the wiring. We used a heat gun and gently de-iced the snowball and the ice in the drain pan. The manual also says you can use a hairdryer for this. Then, my husband used his air compressor and gently blew into the hole to clear out the blockage. We checked behind the unit again and saw that the clog had released and water was flowing into the drip pan. Problem solved. It is important to get the clog out of the drain line so that the problem doesn't occur again. We put everything back together and everything seems fine now. I am also going to check the defrost timer to make sure it is timing properly every 28 minutes or so. You need your manual for this to determine steps to check the timer. It is important for the timer to be set correctly so that the unit goes into defrost mode every 28 minutes. This will also help keep the water flowing and draining w/out having time to completely freeze up. The original root cause of our problem is we had a faulty ice-maker. It had overflowed about 3 months ago. The heavy surge of water, and the small plug in the line is what started this. Another problem we have had with this unit is the plastic tubing in the back. We had one of the lines turn yellow and crack. So every few months we pull the unit out from the wall, vacuum underneath and check the plastic tubing for leaks and breakage.

I need you to double check the model number. Maytag has a service library at this link. http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/html/index.html
By placing the first 3 letters in the search feature it will take you to models like yours. Chose the correct model that you have and enter the number in the search. I believe that the water control valve on back of your refrigerator is the problem. Maytag is very good about helping their customers. Let me know if you have problems gettting the information you need, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Shut the water off for one before it ruins all your floor. It probably has frozen and broken a line or the valve. You can go to this site and get a drawing on your fridge and parts if you need them.

SOURCE: Maytag refrigerator is leaking water

Your freezer has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the unit. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your freezer,due to line freeze over. This can, also, cause a run-off, as stated in your post. In the freezer, standing water will become ice and may result in defrost problems or inadequate coldness.

You will need to Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into the drain line with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog. This will correct the issue.

The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.



NOTE_It is important for the refrigerator to be level. If it is not level, doors may not open or close properly and may not seal tightly. Also, drainage from the defrost cycle might be impaired as might the ice making cycle. The appliance was engineered based on it being installed in a level position. While there may be some tolerance for out-of-level installation, the appliance will operate at its best when properly leveled.

Place a level on top of the refrigerator near the front. Do not put it on the door because the door may not be aligned with the refrigerator case. Check that the refrigerator is level from side to side. Next turn the level to check that it is level from front to back.

If it is not level, adjust one or more of the adjustable leveling feet until it is level. The feet are bolts that can be turned to raise or lower the refrigerator. If they cannot be adjusted with your fingers, use a crescent wrench or pliers.

If you have an ice-maker, it should also be checked for level after first leveling the refrigerator. An ice-maker that is out of level will spill water into the ice bin or into the freezer. It can be repositioned by loosening the mounting screws, adjusting it for level and then re-tightening the screws.

Leaking water from front of door. Replaced boot seal but still leaking. It looks like door is kicked out at the bottom. Would replacing the hinges help?


Try turning the water pressure down. If you have high water pressure the water comes into the dispenser to hard and splashes over the front & side of the dispenser draw the trickles down the inside of the front panel out on to the floor. Very common front loader problem.

Ge GSL25JFTA is leaking water on the floor from the front of the unit


Turn off the water supply to the ice maker. If it stops the leak, look for a leaky O ring on the filter. There is a plastic hose that runs out of the front of the refrigerator and goes to the freezer door for the water dispenser. It has a connector near the freezer door lower hinge so the door can be removed easily. That connector can leak as well. There is a condensate pan under the refrigerator that may be over flowing too.

Side by side whirlpool refrigerator leaking water puddle in front on floor no loose connections and no signs of water from any part of refrigerator


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There are several areas where you may have a leak.

Let's check it out:

You are going to have to pull the unit out so you can inspect what is going on.

Turn the leveling screws counter clock wise to raise them. Pull the unit out so you may get behind it.

25576703-vzgcvxho43azc0x10cxafhpi-5-0.jpg 1.) Observe the plastic tubing going to the water dispenser.
The plastic tubing after time get dry rot. Have someone push the water dispenser and observe the tubing for leaks. But before this put a paper towel under the bottom hinge of the freezer door.

So, if you observe water coming from the tubing that is your problem.

Or if the paper towel in the front is wet, then you have a major problem. There is a leak in the door tubing which is only repairable by replacing the door, which is several hundred dollars plus service - $600.00. You can disconnect the contacts on the larger tubing valve and not use the water dispenser.

Ok, no leaks. Then you have a drain pain leak. Un-plug the unit. Remove the lower bottom cover in the back. Just several screws. Inspect the drain pan. Is there a water line from the pan to the front of your unit.? Repair the drain pan with duct tape and a silicone adhesive.

Inspect the bottom of your freezer. If there is ice then you have a different problem.

Why my refrigerator /freezer is leaking water from the bottom front near freezer and water builds up in the bottom of the freezer?


The leak is probably from the small PVC water line leading to the freezer door ice/water dispenser. Manufacturers put a small plastic joiner at that point to allow removal of the door for shipping and installation. That tiny connector can become easily disconnected and leak water onto the floor every time someone presses the water valve in the dispenser. It's easy to fix, Lowes and Home Depot have the fix-it kit for about $5, but you will probably find the existing joiner parts already attached but only needing to be rejoined.

I'll attach a photo of the Home Depot kit. you can also order it from Amazon and have it delivered right to your mailbox. Search for a "refrigerator door water line connector" and you should see a GE part number WR02X11330.

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

Model #GSH25JSTCSS---Not getting any water from the water dispenser but still have ice coming out---What's the problem?


I have this same model and problem. The water line may be frozen inside the freezer door. (the line enters at the bottom hinge area of the freezer door)

Shut the unit off and leave the freezer door open ( you will need to remove your stuff you want to save first)

Next disconnect the line coming out of the Freezer door near the bottom hinge (should be a quick disconnect coupler, you will need to remove the front air grill assy to allow access to the line/coupler) and lay the line out on the floor.

After thawing the water should run out the line leaving a small puddle on the floor. Reconnect the line, plug the unit back in and test your dispenser.

Although this method restored my water dispenser to working condition, other possible causes for this include the line freezing up in the refridgerator section, bad water valve, bad relay on the motherboard, that triggers the water valve, bad motherboard. Hope this helps.

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 ....

Leak from bottom of fridge


Two things might be happening. One is the line to the fridge is leaking, this line come thru the floor or wall to the bottom and hooks up to a water valve, it may just need tightening. The other problem is you will have a hose that runs from the filter down in behind the crisper drawers to the bottom and coils up here to hold water for cold use. it then runs thru the bottom pan out to the front, to the bottom door hinge on the freezer side up the door to the dispencer. Check along the hose for a pin hole look at the bottom hinge area first, things bump into it here and can damage the plastic cover.
