Question about Whirlpool ET0WSRXML Top Freezer Refrigerator
I cannot remove the shelves. The last time I tried it broke. How do I clean under the shelves?
sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you access to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somewhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wire around the heater( black heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now every time the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

To change the filter rotate counter clockwise. To remove the grill at bottom grab bottom lift up and out. also here is the manual.
Good Luck and please rate FixYa!

On a top-freezer when the drain stops up water will back up turning to ice and eventually filling the air ducks with ice blocking airflow to the fresh food section causing it not to cool. You will also see a water leak inside the fresh food section. To fix this, remove the evaporator cover, (back or bottom of freezer) and then remove all the ice. Once all the ice is removed, you need to unclog the drain. I do this by forcing hot water down the drain with a turkey baser but you can use any squirt bottle, I have even used the water hose. Once the drain is clear, mix water and baking soda and pour it down the drain to prevent this from happening again anytime soon.
Hope this helpout,

When defrosting, were you able to check the back of the unit inside if the panel accumulated ice? You may need to unscrew it t check the back side. Sometimes the water or ice comes from that area. Check also of the thermostat located in that area may have been frozen which sends a wrong reading to the control unit. When you have cleaned the unit make sure you have cleaned the drains for debris. It may also be a problem with just the drain which sends water into the tray underneath. It may not be aligned.
