Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator - 2 problems

I have a Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator model #ED5FHGXKQ02 with an Ultra Ease Water Filtration System. After we moved, the doors no longer lined up straight. How do I adjust them to be straight again? Also, the water dispenser in the door now drips constantly.

    Hi, Josh,
    The dripping solution worked for a while but the next time the water dispenser lever was bumped, the dripping started again. The step-by-step solution for the doors, however were for a different problem. My side-by-side doors are rubbing together at the top where they close and are angled wide apart at the bottom and I couldn't find any way to adjust them.

I would suggest that you get a certified person to come out and look at it you very well could have bent the doors in the move.

but... if you want to do it yourself.

for your drip:
Flush air from the water system the first time it is used and after replacing the filter. Air trapped in the water line or filter may slowly travel through the coiled water reservoir to the dispenser, pushing any water ahead of it. This can cause the dispenser to drip. Water needs to completely fill the lines for all air to be cleared.

  • Use a sturdy container to press and hold the water dispenser bar for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until the water begins to flow. Once the water begins to flow, continue pressing and releasing the dispenser bar (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) for an additional 2 minutes. Repeat if dripping starts again because air can re-enter from the water supply.
  • As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt from the water dispenser.
  • Make sure the refrigerator is connected to a cold water supply.
One or two drops of water immediately after dispensing is normal. It may be necessary to hold the container under the dispenser for 2 to 3 seconds after releasing the dispenser lever.

Need to know where/how to replace filter (ultra ease filtration system) on Whirlpool side by side model ED5FHEXNT00


Hi, you will find the filter at the front of the appliance. If you look at where the two doors meet in the middle, right at the bottom of the appliance - you may have to open the door to see this properly there is a circular hole in the air vent grating with a handle. Turn this anti-clockwise - may be quite stiff but will go - and pull out old filter cartridge. reverse these instructions with new cartridge, hey presto, new filter installed.

Hope this helped

Filter for UltraEase water filtration system?


This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning water lines etc., it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

Whirlpool sideby side ref. ED5FHGXKQ02 condensation on walls of freezer causes accumulation of water on freezer floor


Most times that is a defrost drain blockage behind the rear wall of your freezer back panel. Sometimes the door seals allow some moisture to accumulate if air is drawn in through the seals leaking or the door to the dispenser is stuck open. But when you say it has accumulated in a pool of ice on the bottom of the freezer then the drain is blocked. I'm going to send you to some links and I want you to read through most of what is said and just use the parts the refer to your refrigerators problem, Sea Breeze

The water dispenser is leaking water from my ultra ease 2 model for Whirlpool


Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip.
