Good day,
It's become a common problem on newer machines with less frequent defrost cycles and for a shorter period of time.
The following clip, as you scroll down will see the most exotic procedure. You may not have to go that far.
Using a length of #14 bare copper wire, and wrapping it around the heater and inserting it into the drain hole will usually work. You will need to remove the heater to perform this process properly, and I prefer to wrap the copper close together, each wrap touching the last one. Your call.

Your machine is a product of Whirlpool which makes many brands, all of them with the same basic system.

Whirlpool has a kit to stop the drain from plugging up. You mount a metal tab on the heater and it is long enough to slip down into the drain. When the heater comes on some heat gets transferred into the drain hole and keeps it from ice blockage. fed15be.jpg

Whirlpool Gold refrigerator water leaking


If it's flooding, it's NOT the drain pan. It's probably the water valve has gotten stuck in the open position. Hope this helps!

Whirlpool refrigerator leaking from top of unit


Listened to other posts and figured drain plug was clogged. It was with ice. Removed bottom pan and back panel of freezer, removed ice on bottom, put hot water in drain to thaw ice until it flowed into pan underneath fridge. Thanks for the ideas.

Water leaking from top mount freezer


Hi, This is very common for this brand. UNPLUG the refrigerator. You need to remove the bottom and rear panel in the freezer. You should see an ice build up. remove the ice with a hair dryer preferred. Then with warm/hot water, remove the ice built up in the drain hole located below the evaporator coils. You will need to put on an after market drain heat transfer strip kit to keep tjis from reaccuring. I can get the part# for you if this what you find wrong. Please let me knwo if I can assist you fyrther.

Thanks
Vic

Whirlpool Top-Mount Refrigerator Freezer warm, cracking noise


8yr old? Buy a new one. The cracking sound is from expansion and contraction of the cabinet and ice cooling or defrosting. It can be as simple as a bit of a top up of refrigerant, but can also be that your compressor has worn down the valve plates and therefore is not producing sufficient pressure throught the system.
