Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
There was a pinhole size leak in the water line behind my refrigerator. I need to know what parts to get and how to replace this hose.
You should valve the water off to stop the leak first. You can remove the complete line that is defective, usually a 1/4 inch tube either plastic or copper. Use two wrenches to loosen the compression nut fittings on each end, one wrench holds one part and the other wrench on the nut on the 1/4 inch line. Your local hardware store should have a kit or replacement parts readily available if you bring them what you removed, the water line and connecting device. It may be a good idea to replace the water filter while the water line is out of service. The water filter should be flushed out before using the water from it.

Nick, this is a bear of a job. You may just wanna have fun at parties after all is said and done! 1.) Remove the door from the unit. at the top hinge, remove all screws and disconnect all wiring. Tilt the door toward you and lift it off the bottom hinge. Lay it on the floor handle down. 2.) Remove the liner. Peel the door gasket back a little... see all those 1/4" screws? They have to come off. (*NOTE---> note how the door gasket fits/tucks into the liner, it'll have to go back that way) After the liner is off, you'll see the back side of the dispenser area. Make a note of how all of the insulation and the wiring is located, then remove all of it. There you go! Good luck with it. Speaking of parties, you could actually invite your friends over and make a "drinking game" out of this one... someone takes a drink every time they moan and say "how does this go, again?" or "#%@^!**". Then again, maybe not... 'cause once you start, you HAVE TO finish. Otherwise the freezer would be open and you and all your friends would most likely be passed out on the floor 'til mid-morning! Moral of the story? Don't drink and do this job.

There is a plastic panel inside the frigidaire looking at the underside of the freezer inside the refrigerator compartment which holds the thermostate dial and the light fixture. remove the four 1/4 in hex head screws holding the assembly. pull the panel toward the front. you will expose the drain hose connection you can let it dangle from the plug wires or remove the panel completely, I worked with mine in place. look at the back funnel shape drain. just in front of that see a rectangular styroform collar which should be snug fit to match the underside. clean and dry all. there is a divider between the two funnel compartments, mine was separated between the plastic and the styroform. I used kitchen and bath tub caulking to seal the gap. and a little around the rectangle shape that fits to the underside. plug the wire back in if disconnected. reassemble the panel. that may fix it. good luck.

Cut off a piece of line and go to a good hardware store, they can show you how to fix it. Need a coupling, and a nut and ferrel. House water line goes on one end of coupling, nut and ferrel on the broken water line on fridge. A good hardware store will be able to show you how to fix.

The solenoid valve needs replacing, located at the back of the refrigerator. If you have well water you will need to install a filter on the supply line.
