SOURCE: Water collecting in refrigerator and ice collecting in freezer

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you access to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somewhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wire around the heater( black heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now every time the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

SOURCE: Ice Maker not working

Start by cleaning the condenser with a brush and a shop vac. Then get some nickleguard ice machine cleaner and wash the units plate's down going by package directions, then retry before calling a tech. It may start working but if it does not then it may save you some money by having the unit clean before the tech gets there. Ice machines are not a DIY repair. Sowwy

SOURCE: water leaking and ice in bottom shelf of freezer

Chances are you have a bad seal around the door if it's leaking from the inside which causes the ice to form as well, or if it's leaking from under the freezer you lave a bad heating element that evaporates the water collected in the pan under the freezer or you have a clogged hose that goes to the pan under the freezer which also causes the ice to form because the water has no place to go. Defrost and try to find a way to blow out the hose that goes from your freezer to the pan under the freezer and that should take care of your problem.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold refrigerator water leaking

If it's flooding, it's NOT the drain pan. It's probably the water valve has gotten stuck in the open position. Hope this helps!

My whirlpool gold refrigerator will not cool. Only the bottom freezer works


Sometimes when the freezer door is cracked open a bit for too long, ice forms inside around the vent. I believe the fridge is cooled by the freezer air coming through that vent. Defrost the freezer completely, about 36 hours, and wipe it around till it is clean and dry. Then turn it back on and just wait... My Maytag fixed itself that way, and it took a few days to get cool to temp again..... Good Luck!

Ice forming at bottom of freezer


I had a problem with Ice forming in the bottom of my freezer on my whirlpool side by side freezer-refrigerator. Turn out to be a plugged drain in the bottom of the freezer. That drain goes into a tray under the whole unit. During Defrost, condensate drops from the contents of the freezer on to the bottom of the freezer and goes through a drain tube to a pan underneath. Should that drain tube become plug and the water is left standing in the bottom of the freezer, it will turn back to ice after the defrost cycle is over. Once the drain tube is clean out, the problem goes away.

The Whirlpool Gold refrigerator is not cooling and the bottom freezer has ice formed on the back of the freezer. I purchased the refrigerator in February 2009.


If you can hear the fan running in the freezer you have a defrost issue. Depending on the Model number it can be a timer, adaptive defrost board, a bi-metal themostat, or heater.

There is ice buildup in the drain and maybe under the seperator. Remove the back panel in the freezer and the botom floor of the freezer and remove the ice. Be careful of the styrofoam ducts. Eric

Water buildup in the fridge, dripping in from the freezer


This could be a bad thermostat. If your thermostat never closes it's swith then the defrost element never comes on and you get the problem you are having. Easy fix. Do you know where your timer is and can you retate it?
