SOURCE: Whirlpool GD25DF auto defrost drain problem

There is a drain hole in the back of the freezer on the bottom. Get back there with some hot water. Most of the time it is just lime build up. Unless you know what feel back there. Another way is to move the freezer out and from the back side you can see the drain line. It just pulls right off

You can not acces the drain pan. Por 1/4 cup bleach in the defrost drain hole.
Two days later pour 1/4 cup vinegar in the defrost drain hole.

remove the back panel inside the freezer,then defrost the pan,then take a length of stiff wire and clear out the drain line from there down to the pan in the lower area near the compressor,as theres probably lime,mold growth build up in the drain line plugging the hose restricting draining of defrost water

Why does my GE model number TBX1811 refrigerator leak from the back inside the fridge


Water leaking inside it
  1. Check the lines to your dispenser
If the lines to your dispenser are broken or damaged you will need to replace them.
  1. Damaged drain pan
If your drain pan has holes or cracks it will also need to be replaced.
  1. Clogged drain
If you experience any clogged drains, they must also be unclogged or replace. If you experience this at the ceiling of your unit it can be attributed to a clog in the freezer section. Remove the divider and let the insulation thaw out and dry.

Ice in the drain. Where does the drain pipe empty?


Usually into a pan under the condenser coils on the bottom of the refrigerator. Sounds like the drain is pinched or obstructed, since it should drain without a problem. The water is evaporated from the pan by the heat from the condenser coil.

How do i remove drip pan from my Amana refrigerator?


Hi,

The drain pan you seek is not removable, its between the compressor and the condenser coil. if you really need to remove it, you will have to crack it and then replace it with a new one. I hope this answered you question.

A puddle of water comes from under the refrigerator daily. model:ed5gndxw 0, w/o ice maker.


That could be something as simple as a defrost drain line missing the pan below your refrigerator. The drain pan has a hole or crack in it. Or could be the defrost drain line is blocked somewhere else. You mentioned you had no ice maker so I believe you also have no cold water dispenser. I have a link I would like you to click on and read over the different ways a refrigerator leaks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool drain clog


yes it is most likely the drain that is plugged and or frozen up. to repair this you will need to remove the rear access cover inside the freezer compartment clear all the ice from the drain pan and flush hot water thru the drain hole located in the drain pan. this is a fairly easy repair you can do youself. the hardest part will be removing and reinstalling the rear cover. good luck peyton.
BTW I use a turkey baster or large syringe filled with hot water to flush the drain line with.

Freezer drain plug


Self defrosting refrigerators as well as freezers all have a defrost drain system. This drain system can become plugged or frozen causing defrost drain water to back up into the refrigerator or freezer compartment. The water may gather under the crisper drawers on top freezer models. On side by side, bottom or stand alone freezers ice will build up in the freezer at the bottom and eventually leak out the door.

Plugged Defrost Drain - Freezer on Top (Water under the crisper drawers)

At the top of the refrigerator next to the temperature controls there usually is a cup-like part that carries the defrost drain water into a tube and out the back of the refrigerator to a defrost drain pan behind the unit. Pull the cup out of the tube and clean the cup with hot water and soap. If there is no cup, pull the refrigerator out away from the wall, go behind it and disconnect the drain tube to clear it. If the drain tube is not accessible from the back or the drain can not be cleared from there the main back panel in the freezer can be removed to access, thaw and flush out the drain under the cooling coil.

Use a turkey baster to flush HOT water into the tube to clear any obstruction. The water squirted into the tube should end up in the defrost drain pan.

If the tube will not clear with hot water try blowing it out with compressed air.

Put the cup back on and make sure it is all the way on or in the tube.

Plugged Defrost Drain - Side By Side, Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator or Stand Alone Freezer

The defrost drain pan is located at the bottom of the freezer compartment behind the back wall of the freezer. On some models, the pan is accessible without removing the back panel and others are not. After you get to the defrost drain pan use a hair dryer to melt the ice from the pan.

Once the ice is removed use a turkey baster to squirt HOT water into the drain hole to clear the drain.

When the drain is clear you should hear or see the water you are squirting into the hole enter the pan under or behind the refrigerator.
