Question about Whirlpool ED5VHGXM Side by Side Refrigerator
I can hear lots of draining water under the fridge from the drip tray in the freezer. Luckily It looks like it's all being caught in the pan under the fridge and drains out . It seems to do this often and seems to be wasting water. Any suggestions?
The water you hear sounds like it's coming from the automatic defroster in the freezer compartment. It runs down a drain tube into the pan you describe under the fridge. The pan is heated and evaporates the water.
Just some possible explanations if you are hearing "lots" of water"
* You may be in a warmer, more humid climate
* The temperature and humidity in your dwelling is elevated
* The door gasket on the freezer may be leaking
* The freezer is too full
* The freezer door is not closing properly
* The freezer door is being left open for extended periods
* There is a problem with the defrost cycle
If you are hearing water running all the time, check the ice maker water line and fill valve (if you have an ice maker) - there could be a leak or other malfunction.
