How to Unclog Refrigerator Drain Line

Mar 12, 2016 | LG Refrigerators

1 Answer

Plugged drain

Need to completely defrost freezer. hot rags, hot water, paper towels, etc. Until you get all the ice out you don't have a chance of unclogging the drain. Could be just ice clogging it too which in that case hot water will solve that as well. If it's something else clogging the drain, I've used a mini bottle brush to unclog them or even a stiff piece of solid wire.

Whirlpool mod#et18pkxgwu top freezer,no ice maker. water leaks from freezer down intt the bottom ver. bins.

The Water is coming from the defrost cycle melting the ice on the evap coil.  There is a drain that goes to a tray near the compressor where the heat from the compressor evaporates the water.  That drain is clogged.  Take the back panel off of the freezer and unclog the drain hole.  Most of the time it is iced over and the ice needs to be melted.  It could also  be clogged where it comes out at the compressor.

My GE TFX27PF fridge is leaking water out the bottom.

You will need to remove the food from the freezer .Remove the lower shelving and the 6 screws holding the lower rear freezer panel on . At the very bottom , below the coils , you should see a drain hole . If not , and you see ice , then this drain hole is clogged with ice . Use a hair dryer and hot water to defrost the hole . Use a small tube , inserted into the drain hole , to blow out any unseen debris , which will clear the drain line . Reinstall in reverse order .

The bottom of my lg french door bottom freezer freezer has a layer of ice

Hi, The defrost drain is plugged. UNPLUG the refrigerator. Remove the rear inside panel in the freezer section and locates the drain hole below the evaporator coils. You will have to melt the ice in the drain hole and flush it out with hot water.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Freezer Coils icing over

Drain clogged.

Directly below the coils is the drain. You may have to use a hair dryer to remove the Ice so you can see the drain hole but it's there. Once you unclog the drain all that water should go down and into a plastic pan under the Ref. Heat from the compressor will evaporate the water so, you should never have to empty this pan.

Leaking water


The freezer has a drain hole in it typically in the back at the bottom. This is clogged and needs to be cleared out in order to stop the water problem in the refrigerator section. Remove everything from the freezer and if needed defrost. Look for the drain hole and you can pour hot water or use a hair dryer to melt the ice in the drain. Once it is unclogged, the water problem should stop.

I just did this about 6 months ago on my own refrigerator/freezer.

Water drains internally at back of freezer drawer

Check the drain.

Take the bottom drawer out of the freezer and look in the very back for a drain hole. It may be covered with ice. A hair dryer will melt the ice so you can unclog the drain.

Water leaking from bottom left freezer/dispenser side

Take the metal back panel off the inside of the freezer, exposing the cooling coils. Below the coils, at the very bottom of the freezer compartment you will find a small drain hole. (Presently covered over with ice) Use hot (not boiling) water and a turkey baster to melt the ice and force hot water into the drain hole until the water runs out the drain hole (and into the defrost drain pan under the refrigerator) on it's own. This should be a Fix-Ya for your refrigerator.
