Question about Whirlpool 18.2 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator ET18PKXG
Freezer is leaking water into the main fridge. Both temperatures in each compartment are adequate but the freezer appears to be leaking water into the fridge. The fridge is level and not over packed. It's a whirlpool top freezer fridge. Any suggestions?
Hi, What has happened is that the drain hole in the freezer has frozen up and the defrost water is dripping into the fresh food area.
Remove the floor panel and the rear fan cover in the freezer and you see the ice that is blocking the drain.
Be carefull when removing the ice. DO NOT use a sharp object. The best way is to use a hair dryer.
Once you locate the drain hole, you will need to melt the ice down in the drain hole too. For this, you can use the hair dryer or poor a few glasses of hot water (sopping up the water between each glass).
What you will need to do after the drain is open is to put an after market drain heat transfer kit on to prevent this from reaccuring.
Please let me know if this is the case and I can get you the right part# or even send you the part.
