Water leaking from behind ice chute door & freezes under ice bin

Similar to this problem, I have water leaking from behind the ice chute door of our Whirlpool side-by-side GC5HT freezer. It appears as though the ice chute door is loose. Could this be the cause of water to leak? Or, is it a frozen drain pan as I've read on other solutions of similar problems.

You will have to remove the unit and access the rear of freezer. Check that the filters are not plugged as well as drain.

My Kenmore ice and water in the door refrigerator has the ice in the storage bin freezing into big clumps of cubes and the dispenser forces the bin out of position. It acts like the icemaker is getti


There may be ice forming in the water chute causing water to spill out of the chute and pour onto the ice in the bucket. Sometimes the water valve has a slow drip or is slow to shut off. the valve may need replacing. I doubt it is the icemaker but it could be.

When i close the door on the freezer side the water trickles down the front panel


This could be a leaking water valve. First thing I would suggest is to turn the water supply off under the sink or behind fridge wherever its located and see if the leaking stops.If so then you'll need to replace the water valve on fridge. If this doesn't work look up inside the ice chute on front of door and make sure the flapper is closing all the way when you get ice. Warm air coming up into freezer because the flapper is not sealing tight can cause water to run down front of fridge.If this is the case there is usually frost buildup on the ice chute on the inside of door.

Refrigerator ice dispenser freezes up


Refrigerator ice makers can fail for several reasons, some simple and some tricky. First, look for kinks in the water supply line tubing. Carefully roll your fridge away from the wall to inspect the line and connections located behind it. Straighten any kinks. Note: Use caution when attempting to straighten the 1/4-inch soft copper tubing. It can easily break!

If your system includes a water filter, the filter may be clogged or installed incorrectly. Check your manual and replace as needed, or have a qualified professional do it for you.

Check the ejector arm (inside and under the bin) and the delivery chute (on the door, below the bin outlet) for blockage. Use a plastic utensil to clear them as needed.

For additional troubleshooting steps and solutions, see Ice maker not working. I hope this helps!

you need to check the flapper in the door where the ice comes out,, if you take the ice bin out look down in the hole where the ice comes out,, if it is not sealing good it will let warm air come up the chute and melt the ice,, if it is sealing good,, then you need to check and see if the water fill tube( the one that goes into the icemake) is not froze up or has asomething blocking it

Probably the dual valve (solenoid) the one that opens when the ice maker calls for water is leaking.It's located in the back of the refrigerator at the bottom behind the cover.To be sure this is the problem turn off the ice maker and after a while if is water the valve is leaking ,if not the problem is with the ice maker.

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator model et22dq. The ice maker makes ice and dumps it but won't dispense thru the door. It seems to freeze in the ice bin. Could there be a water leak inside the ice maker?...


The ice door located in the ice chute in the door is not closing. Allowing wam air in your ice bin which melts the ice at the bottom of your bin there for making a huge ice dam. Replace cirercut board at cost of 295.00

Leak from icemaker shorts electricity in house


It sounds like the ice in the bin is warming up enough to melt for some reason then re-freeze. Check your door gasket seal and also the ice chute door flapper seal to make sure warm room air isn't being drawn into the ice bin area. Also make sure the freezer area is VERY cold like 0 degrees F or lower, that will keep the ice hard and help stop the ice from having a liquid surface film from opening and closing the freezer door too often (then freezing again). The water down the back is from the ice cubes melting a little then re-freezing. Also, is the frige working OK? Does the compressor turn on and off normally? I ask because sometimes the compress start device is failing and the refer can warm up quite a bit while the compressor is trying to start up... eventually the compressor will start but by then the ice has melted a little then the compressor runs for a long time to bring the temps down again. Monitoring with a thermometer every hour will show if the temps are lowering in the freezer section too much.
