You give much information about your issue. But right off hand it sounds like 1 of 2 possibilities.
Either the waste tank is full or the filters and lines are clogged. The clogs love to hide inside the extension hose, the plastic filter usually found on the bottom of the upright machines and just inside the entrance past the removable clear brush guard.
Hope this helps!

I am finding brown flakes behind my whirlpool refrigerator. Why is this happening and how can I stop it? There is no ice or water dispensor on my refrigerator.

Hi Aaron !
I believe the brown flakes you are finding are coming from evaporated condensation. Let me explain ! As warm air and product hold more moisture then cold air or product when the door is opened and closed cold air in the fridge falls out and warm or ambient air replaces it. ( warm air rises and cold air falls ) The refrigeration process has an evaporator on the inside that is essentially colder than the temp you are maintaining the fridge at. Moisture is drawn out of the air and product and freezes to the evaporator thus drying the air in the fridge. When the compressor cuts out and the ice melts the moisture goes down the drain pipe and either collects in a container on top of the compressor or in a tray that has heated pipes from the refrigeration process through it. The moisture is then evaporated and leaving only the impurities of the air, dust and/or wet spills in the fridge. If you have a fan under you fridge or a breeze goes through there it is easily disturbed. Not a lot you can do as it is a part of the process. Wipe up spills, reduce door open times and keep door seal cleaned with warmed soapy water. Check fridge is level and square and doors close tight. Hope this helps tiger !

Reservoir not filling

did you try taking a qtip and cleaning any gunk on the inside plastic hose? That just happened with mine and I am giving it a shot. Had a ton of brown stuff blocking the pathway. I jsut do not know where the genesis of the hose is, so I could only get in so far. Let me know how it goes.

Some water dripped down from the floor above right on my receiver and it shut down. Now that it sat for a bit it turned on but won't go off headphone's even though no headphone's plugged in I...

When water spills on electronic products it causes corrosion to the circuit board and to the components in different circuits, unless you went inside the unit immediately after the water went into the unit and cleaned the effected areas some components and circuit traces have been already damaged and the longer the water sits inside the more damage it can do. Circuit traces may need cleanning and some capacitors or other components may need replacing because water is conductive and can create short circuits to diodes + trasistors, IC chips.

Leak under car on driver side maybe waterpump

If the fluid is a bright green or yellow colour, it is coolant fluid. Check the water pump, there should be a seal leak drain hole under it, look for signs of a leak. If there is a green/yellow track leading from below the water pump. you need to have the water pump replaced. A leak from the engine would be dark brown to black an a transmission leak would be red tp very dark red. Coolant would tend to dry up while oils spills do not. The water pump is located on the side of the engine where the belts are. I do not know if your car is left or right hand drive.

Too much water getting to ice maker

The little cup that sits in front of the hose that dispenses the water, has frozen water in it . Check that first and if it's OK, then there is a small screw that you can adjust, look at your manual.

Water comes to the fridge but spills out rather than through the water spout

Water comes to the fridge but spills out rather than through the water spout

you may have a bad connection that may have to be tightened or a bad gasket that is leaking or possibly a bad switch that is not shutting off and lets the water through – please check you owners manual for the trouble shooting section for this problem as well or cal the service professional to serv ice the unit and replace the part
