Question about Whirlpool ET4WSKXS Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator and freezer smell like rotting food. It is a whirpool refrigerator with the ice box on the top. I have cleaned it with baking soda and water and put dishes of baking soda and vanilla in it - also have a open can of coffee in the fridge and freezer. My husband thinks that it has gotten into the coils. What do I do now?

Smells coming from inside freezer and refrigerator


What kind of smell? I assume it's not rotting food? Maybe mold? Has it been closed up for a while? We keep an open box of baking soda in the refrigerator to avoid odors. Maybe wipe the inside down with soapy water and a tablespoon of bleach, then rinse?

Used wrong water filter. Now that we replaced with correct filter, there is a horrible odor in the refrigerator.


Hello Mary;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Putting in the wrong water filter will not effect the smell in your refrigerator. At times the granules in a water filter will break down and get into your water dispenser and ice cube tray. This should not create a bad smell, just cloudy water.

Your plastic liner in your refrigerator has pores and holds odor. You have something in your fresh food section or freezer that is spoiled. Your fresh food section receives cooling air from your freezer. If you have a spoiled product in your freezer you will not smell it because it is frozen. But, as the cooling air goes into your fresh food section and cools down you will smell it.

Find the bad product in your freezer and discard.

With a 50% solution of white vinegar and water wash the plastic liner.

Now you can put a tray of baking soda in your unit, until you purchase deodorizers based on temperature requirements, one especially designed for the freezer section and one for fresh food section. These deodorizer are about $12.00 each.

Try Lowe's and Home depot.

Why has the ice started tasting bad even with new filter?


One of the power saving features of new refrigerators is that the cold air from the refrigerator gets recirculated to the freezer. What that means is that if you have uncovered food or odors in the refrigerator, that smell will go up into the freezer and your ice will take on that taste. Throw away all bad food, clean, cover all food, and put a box of baking soda in your refrigerator and this should help.

My ice cubes have a funny odor/taste.


Does your refrigerator have a water filter? if it has one it will be in the kickplate/grill below the freezer door. If it has one replace the filter.
