Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Leaking water


Did you inspect if the hole in the drain inside the fridge at the bottom is not blocked? Try to clean it with a swab. Sometimes this causes a "leakage" of condensed water.

Ice maker is frooze up and has quit making ice water has gathered in the bottom of the fridge


this may be a defrost problem being that water in bottom of freezer is coming from frem defrost and drain is blocked
is the freezer down to -18 deg c ?
the other problem is that the water inlet valve is leaking water into chamber when is not meant to
so if water valve is faulty this can happen so replace valve

Whirlpool ultraease refrigerator (ED7FHG) making water sounds, and drips water onto steel pan in bottom rear of freezer side. Purchased new. This is an obvious change. Problem?


You have a water leak somewhere (I'm assuming this water sound is constant). If not write me back for other possible solutions.

The only place water comes into the freezer is for an ice maker or a door water dispenser. Check around the ice maker for a leak. If there is a water dispenser in the door then check the piping to it also.

There is a drain in the bottom of the freezer compartment which is there so when the frost is melted by the defrost heaters, it has somewhere to go. This drain drains into the "drip pan" (or condensate pan) in the bottom of the unit. Here the water will sit until it is evaporated into the air.

If this helps you, please select YES to the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Water is leaking inside the refrigerator and the ice cube aren't freezing completely (cube is a hollow shell of ice)


Possibly it is because fridge is not cooling correctly(Ice cubes hollow).. Suggest proper defrost. if it is cooling partially, it shows cooling is trying to take place (Make sure before you switch on after defrost, check for proper water drainage.Water must flow to the compressor once defrosted.Take note if the fan runs correctly.

Whirlpool ultraease warm on left side, dispenses warm water


not dangerous, i would recommend vacuuming coils under and behind refrig, make sure the fan behind the unit( cooling for compressor) is running full speed. the water is probably "warmer" then usual because the waterline runs across the bottom of the refrig, which appears to be overheating as it is. this should rectify your issue
