Water leaking through ice maker

I can hear the ice falling into the ice container when the door is closed. Then I can hear the water running (I guess to fill the ice tray). After the water has stopped, I open the door only to find the water has leaked through the ice tray. When I put my glass to the dispenser to receive ice and push the dispenser, water comes out. This also turns any ice in the container into one giant ball of ice.

Leaking under left side. water lines ok. too close to ground to see where water is. hardwood kitchen floor is buckled. ice maker is putting out too much ice and falling out onto shelf. what do i need to...


It sounds like the water tray for the defrost mode is full, you need to check if the tray has moved or maybe the door rubber are not sealing and this will cause extra ice built-up, and will cause the leak.

Water is dripping from the ice maker into the ice tray


you may have a bad water valve. the valve could be not completely shutting off. when you hear the ice maker begin to cycle open the freezer door and watch it. look to see if the plastic tube coming thru the back of the refrigerator is not leaking after the ice maker has completed its cycle. if it is dripping and running over your water valve is bad.

you may also check the level of the ice maker. sometimes you can be out of level causing a slight leak.

Leaking water from freezer, have no clog in drain. Ice and water fall down back of inside freezer!! Water on floor a lot?


Good day,
Sounds as if the fill tube to the ice maker is either plugged with ice, broken, or adjusted improperly.
Remove the ice maker, then the fill tube needs to be inspected closely for the issues above.
As well, the fill valve in the bottom rear of the machine might not be shutting off completely after filling the ice maker well. If that is the case, the valve is non serviceable and must be replaced.

Water dispenser works, ice maker makes ice but doe not dispense


Remove the ice bucket/container from inside the freezer compartment. Examine underneath at the front of the container to see if ice cubes are lodged between the metal blades. If cubes are caught in this area, they will prevent ice from dropping into the glass/cup.

Whirlpool Fridge makes a loud dripping sound all the time G56SHE


Erin,

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.

Leaking ice maker.


Sounds like you have a bad inlet valve that is staying open and is not closing letting water run through the system all the time. The valve is located next to the Ice machine water line

Water leaking from freezer door and ice maker not gettin water


Check the fill tube for the ice maker and make sure it is in the correct place. This sounds like the fill tube has been moved and is running water into the freezer instead of the ice maker. Let me know what you find. I am here to help you.

Our fridge does not make ice - Whirlpool Gold side-by-side GS5SHAXNT00


Same as others. Whirlpool Gold side-by-side. Water was running yesterday but minimal ice. Now that's gone and I don't even hear the water. Turned on/off the infrared sensor. Still get drinking water, just no ice in the bin. There's a couple cubes in the maker itself when I open the door (which I've closed completely). Help?
