Water on the top shelf of the refrigerator

I think the ice maker is leaking somewhere and I'm receiving water (standing) on the top shelf of my refrigerator... I chcked the outside icemaker line and it is not leaking. I think it's internal. It's a Whirlpool model number ETICHMXKQ03.

Your defrost drain is clogged and now the defrost drain trough has filled with ice causing the water from your defrost cycles to flow into the fresh food section. You will need to clear all ice form thr drain area and this is done thru the freezer wall and some models also have a removable bottom panel in the freezer that has to come out also to get to the drain. You can do this it will just take a little time. About an hour for a first timer with little experience. Good luck and hope this helps

Lg French door inside ice maker stops working but water flows out the back of the fridge where the water line gores in. Water line is fine and just had a new ice maker put in but it still does not produce...


Sounds like you have to have a leak in the water line somewhere. The water line goes to the top hinge in the door, so the water has to come from somewhere below that point or it would be collecting inside the door and leak out the front. A leak would prevent water from getting to the ice maker, or a leak at the valve could have this effect as well. Check the water valve that gets a call to send water to the ice maker.

Shelf kitchenaid Refrigerator's ice maker leaking water


Turn off the water line that goes to the refrigerator and see if still leaking if not the problem is with the solenoid valve ,which is an electric valve that opens only when the ice maker calls for water and is located at the back of the fridge in the bottom behind the cover(if your refrigerator has water and ice dispenser ,Its called dual valve). And if leaks when you turn on the water ,this part has to be replaced .But if leaks and overflow the ice maker only when it calls for water the problem is in the ice maker and to repair it will cost almost as a new one .

Smelly Ice and water leaking into top shelf


Does water in door dispenser taste bad? If not, Try arm and hammer fridge deoderizer. It will help to absorb fridge odors which may be clinging to water molecules in ice maker tray. Ice maker tray is open to freezer area.Water is very medium to infiltrate with odors. Try this first
