There is a small heater to evaporate the water after a defrost cycle. This defrost heater is gone and needs to be replaced.

Water is coming down thur the 2 vents in the refrig, and the freezer has ice on the floor.


The defrost drain line in the freezer has frozen closed with ice.
Defrost the drain hole with hot water or a hair dryer.
Turn the refrigerator OFF before doing this.

I have a whirlpool model er8xymsloo and there is water on the top shelf in the refridgerator just below the frezzer. I cant figure out where it is coming from and what is leaking.


Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM or COPPER solid wire , 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

Water pools under the crisper drawers and looks as if it is draining from the upper freezer down the side of the refrig door, looks like the little hole under the crisper is clogged with rust?? It is a old...


Mine clogs with a soft fungus mat but rust actually sounds better. I run a stiff wire like an unwound hanger into the hole and open it up so the water will drain onto the tray made to collect this water underneath the fridge. Last time I left the wire in place with a long handle and I haven't had water to mess with for many months now. My hole is between the two crisper drawers and when I get into either of them the wire gets a jiggle and I guess that's all it takes to keep the hole clear so the water can drain like it's supposed to.

Otherwise the fungus builds and builds until it sluffs off as a wad and plugs up the works on a regular basis. Too funky for sure.

Whirlpool refrigerator leaking from top of unit


Listened to other posts and figured drain plug was clogged. It was with ice. Removed bottom pan and back panel of freezer, removed ice on bottom, put hot water in drain to thaw ice until it flowed into pan underneath fridge. Thanks for the ideas.
