Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker

2 Answers

We just bought this house and the fridge that came with the house is a whirlpool designer style. The problem we are having is that it's leaking water all over inside the fridge and it's coming from the ceiling of the fridge that looks like vents or something from the freezer. Just wondering if anyone has any idea before we call a tech. Thanks a bunch

This is a common problem with old top mount refrigerators. The foam between the the two cavities starts to break down and sweat due to the differences in temperature between the two cavities. You can try emptying the unit, turning it off for a couple of days and leaving the doors open giving it a chance to dry out, if the condition returns after a short amount of time, then it is time for a new refrigerator, there is no cure for the breaking down of the Styrofoam inside the unit

I just rented this home in NJ and the landlord gave us a whirlpool designer style refrigerator. Dont know the model, but it also can make ice if hooked up when I pulled it out, but it is not. However, the freezer is making my ice cream to turn into smoothie. Also it is seems the bottom portion of the refrigerator is only cool not cold. It started about 2 days ago. What should we do. Please help. We do not want to loose our food.

Why does water filter leak when tightly connected but not when loose?


It makes sense if there is a crack in the filter housing that is made more severe by tightening the fitting. Also, a fitting could be stripped from overtightening.

There is usually a condensation pan at the bottom of a fridge. This can fill with water and over flow, causing what is happening. Also, the ice maker could be causing the problem because the water connections can leak at the back where they connect to the house water system.

There are a number of things that would cause this, including the inlet valve and filter. However, a cracked filter is by far the most common cause. Remove the water filter and if it no longer leaks, the filter is bad. If it continues to leak, it is likely the filter housing that is the issue.

Water dripping onto back of shelves and into drawers and bottom of "designer style" frig


There is a tube at the back of most fridges which routes freezer water to a evaporator tray at the bottom.

Usually in the fridge at the top just below the freezer is a small collection cup. If that cup or tube is blocked then it will drip water into your fridge.

Let me know if that helps.

Hi freezer on american style fridge freezer is


there is a defrost mode that melts any frost or ice on the evaporator coils and drains it into a pan under the fridge. if that drain is blocked, the water will pool inside. also check the door seals. if warm moist air leaks in, it'll condense on the cold interior and pool as well.

That is the water inlet for the ice maker. It is 1/4 inch diameter and will need to connect to a valve of that size with 1/4 inch plastic or copper tubing.

Strange taste in ice cubes


Did you use new water lines? If you did then clear the icecubes from the tray and use an appliance store cleaning solution to wash it out with. their solution is designed for fridge use and wont leave an after taste......Rinse well...... Also for awsome Ice......Install a large in-line water filter.... Makes mine taste like frozen mountain spring water with no nasty taste or smell. Hope it works for ya!
