Hi,
This is commonly caused by the drain pipe becomming blocked. At the back of the fridge there should be the cooling plate - and at the base of this a small channel to catch the drips. These should go through a small hole to the back of the unit. This rear pipe often gets blocked with slime or scraps of packaging.
Best method is to turn off and move the whole thing forward, then select something that is similar to wire, but will not harm the pipe. Net curtain wire seems a good tool, or single core PVC covered electrical wire.
Push this through the pipe untill it is seen at the rear. It usually runs onto a tray on top of the compressor (motor).
Squirt some anti-fungal cleaner down it once a month to keep it clear.

Sounds like you may have a frozen drain. You can shut the ref down for 24 hrs to let the drain thaw out. Or you could remove the back panel of the freezer and down at the bottom back there will be a drain pan. Use a turkey baster with hot water and keep shooting it down the drain line. This will clear the ice. Once its clear run an additional cup of water down the line.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Fridge is clean but has a nasty smell coming out from the back


There may be a tray under the fridge that collects any water from defrosting . It usually evaporates from the compressor fan blowing over it . Remove lower front cover and back cover to access and clean this tray. Unplug unit before attempting this just to be safe. Hope this helps.

The water is coming from a leaking water tank behind the deli/meat tray. It only leaks when you use the water dispenser. You will need to disassemble the deli drawer to get to the water tank and replace the water tank. FOR THE WASHER, call Samsung for service. You may have a control board problem.

SMELL COMING FROM LARDER FRIDGE,FOUND THE PROBLEM AT BACK WHITE TRAY ON TOP OF MOTOR A BUILD UP OF SLIME , FINDING A PROBLEM TO CLEAN TRAY,


This is the defrost water that collects on the collection tray - white tray on top of motor. Normally over a period of time the water evaporates off but if there is collection of dirt it can smell. So you need to PULL out the tray - use a screw driver to release the lock and the tray will come out which can be cleaned using a water jet and detergent.

I have a model ET8CHKXKQ0 1 Whirlpool refrigerator and it keeps collecting water in the meat tray, the vegetable tray and under both vegetable trays. I have vaccumed under the frig., in the back and...


The drain in the freezer is clogging. When the defrost switches on, the backed-up ice thaws and starts dripping down into the fridge area.

Easiest is probably to turn off the fridge, let it thaw, then check the freezer drain to see if you can unclog it.

Otherwise, you have to pull out the bottom and back parts in the freezer (which will probably have some sort of ice frozen to them). Once you see the drain pan, get a turkey baster and flat head screw driver. You'll have to make a hole in the ice above the drain and squirt hot water until you hear it start draining. The drain hole is off center to the right in the drain pan.

Good luck

Ref. Whirlpool model ED25DQ/ water in meat drawer


You seem to have conflicting information here.
If you turn the therostat DOWN it is setting it to defrost that will not help the food in the door to get cold it gets it warmer. The water is possibly from the fridge being in defrost mode and the tube that usually direcfts it to a tray beneath the fridge to waste tray that evaporates the water from the heater coil has somehow been directed back into the crisper draw.

tfry turning the fridge to colder not warmer. Hope i interpreted this correctly, language is a wonderful tool when facial expression and visuals are available otherwise its a handicap

Water is my refrigerator crispers and meat drawer


I dont know what the book is saying to do nor what refrigerator it is, but in my case the reason for collecting water is that the drain gets stuck with some nasty goo.
This drain so located in the back of the refrigerator and is used to lead away water condensing on the cooling element.
Take a long stiff wire and push it through or make a hook and try to pull the goo out (this is really gooey stuff but it rather does not stink).

Water leaks under veg bins.. Cannot tell where it is coming from. Accumulates slowly


This refrigerator look like mine (Picture).
Mine did the same thing. If it is the same then this is what I did.
Look under the there is a collection tray.
This tray collect the water.
At the bottom of the refrigerator (Inside where the water collect) is a cap.
The cap has cap would have holes or a slot that allow the little water to fall to the collection tray.
Mine has slots and was block up.
clean it out and that should do it.
The water should be able to fall to the tray at the bottom.
I do hope this help you.
