Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Model GT22DM - has a slide out tray in the freezer. It is attached to a base-with holes in it. The holes allow all matter of crumbs and debris to accumulate under it. How can I remove the base to clean under it?

SOURCE: Cleaning drip tray.
I have just removed the drip tray from my fridge freezer and it was relatively easy.
Do not remove the compressor unit.
The drip tray is held in place by a metal clasp which is welded to the top of the compressor. The clasp is a flat piece of metal which must physically twisted to align with the key way in the plastic drip tray. I used thin pair of pliers to grip the clasp and twist it clockwise to line up with the tray key way. The tray then has to be carefully manouvred off the compressor so as not to cause damage or spill it foul smelling contents. This I managed to achieve fairly easily.
Clean out and install then twist the clasp to clamp the tray into position. I don't know what would happen if you didnt lock the tray back in position as it does not seem capable of falling off on its own and it would be easier to remove next time.
Hope this makes sense

Make sure to return the correct tray/bin in the right runners. All three freezer trays have different designs on each side, which means that the top tray must be returned to the top tray and cannot be interchanged with the second tray. What happened in my case is, I was trying to put the 2nd tray to the first tray that's why I had difficulty replacing it back and would not fit.
