Water coming out from under front of refg


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.

Top freezer of whirlpool frosting up bottom notgetting cold


If your fan motor is blowing then I would say you have a defrost problem. How about a good old apartment top mount ice box manual from whirlypool?

Bottom wont stay cold top frezer it work bottom ref. wont saty cold and the light work and the fan blowing so im looking for why it wont stay cold at the bottom reg.


make sure you don't have the air flow passages in the back of the freezer blocked with food items or frost. if you have alot of food or items in the freezer and its packed tight it won't let the cold air circulate into the bottom unit

I have a whirlpool refg that will not auto defrost.


Inside your fresh food compartment is a defrost timer hidden behind the tep. control panel. Most panes have a hole or plug you may need to remove to turn the timer. I need you to turn it clockwise slowly until compressor stops running. Wait about 30 min. to see if the refrigerator comes back on. If not we need to replace the defrost timer part # 482493
That is providing the model number above your post is correct.

Top & middle shelves COVERED with frost/ice, not middle


That is normal. The refrigerant runs through those shelves. They are the evaporator side of the unit.That is where the freezing effect comes from.
Check door seals for leaking air.
Keep door openings to a minimum.
Get in there and get out.
Those things will help prolong frost/ice buildup.

Servis fridge / frezer not colling or freezing


i would firstly do a complete defrost- incase there has been a fault with the frost free system. if after a full defrost it runs ok then there was a fault somewhere in the defrost system including either defrost heater, cut out or possible jammed circulation fan.
