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

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool refrigerator where water pools under the veggie crispers. It looks like it is coming from the freezer. The unit does not have an ice maker and I suspect a drain line is clogged. Any suggestions on repairing it?

Freezer on top? If so remove rear panel from freezer inside and check drain under evaporator. If clogged, use hot water and turkey baster to squirt water and thaw out drain. DO NOT use sharp instrument to pry ice out. You can use a blow dryer to help thaw as well. Turkey baster helps to jet hot water in drian.

Why is water pooling under right crisper?


On defrost refrigerators water is drained down the sides to an outlet on the bottom of the interior of the unit and then to a tray under the unit, close to the floor, where it is heated and evaporates.
If he hole inside is plugged then the water will pool inside.
Take out both crispers and try to find the location where the water will flow out. It may be plugged with gunk The inside bottom of the unit may have indented runs where the water will be directed to the outlet.

My no frost is leaking water from under the freezer into the fridge and pooling up under crisper drawers


You have a clogged drain tube in the freezer . here is how to repairit. take off the ice maker if it has one. then remove the 1/4 ince screws in the back. the whole back panel will come off.depending on the ice build up you might have to defrost the unit. if you would like to easily fix it just unplugg the unit and let it defrost. defrosting will unfreeze the line. this will sovle you problem for a while but it will happen again.

Refrigerator crisper drawers are freezing veggies


Shut the air flow into the crispers if you can. If not, turn the refrigerator temperature warmer by just a few degrees. The air into the fridge from the freezer is channeled into the crispers.

Water pools under the veggie crisper


yoor problem is with the drain, when your refrig goes into self defrost the water melted from the defrost needs some where to go. There is a drain for this purpose....it is normally a tube that leads from the rear of freezer to pan by compressor. when this gets blocked the water has nowhere to go except into the freezer vent and down the bottom of the refridge compartment. you will need to clear the blockage in the drain tube...if you are still haveing a problem i can tell you how.

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.

Underneath the crispers is full of water sometimes even freezes Underneath the crispers water collects, but it does not freeze.


Here is a link to help you resolve the problem I also have an even better link but on-line is moving slow at moment. Anyway you will need to take the part out from back and clean the blockage., Let me know if this helps, Sea breeze

Refrigerator/ water collecting under veggie bins


sounds like you do have a clogged drain tube, its self defrosting but the defrost water is pooling under hte crispers instead of in the drain pan under unit.so you ll either have to remove hte rear panel of freezer and locate the drain trough/ tube, and defrost it allowing for water to drain down, o rclear all the tube leading down to the drain pan.
