Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

Open Question

We recently bought a used Whirlpool, model ET8RHMXK005, with ice maker. Since we are using it for a second refrigerator in the garage, we did not hook up the ice maker. The refrigerator drips water down on the shelves. Can we do something about this. It seems to freeze ok. No melting or thawing in the freezer unit.

SOURCE: Loud banging noise and water leaking

not much can be done about compressore noise, short of replacing it. but your drain issue is easily fixed, with that whirlpool heat strap you mentioned.it actually wraps around the heater in frezer section and the idea is that when the unit goes into a defrost cycle(3 or 4 times a day) the heater heats the strap(which runs into drain tube) up as well, preventing tube from freeezing up and eventually backing up into your freezer floor

SOURCE: Kenmore Model 78185891 type C21TFA95, water leakage problem

you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

Hi caleycatz,
It sounds like you are in need of a motor module for your icemaker. This is the motor and gear that drives the icemaker prongs. The part number is
W10190935 The price is $77.59 and $6.00 shipping
I can have one of these at your door in 1-2 days, so let me know if you need one. We take Visa Mastercard and Discover. Or you can order from sears for the same price and wait 10 days.
Good luck to you and I really hope this will FixYa. Please take the time to rate me. Thanks

Remove ice maker?


Yes you can just remove the ice maker and no cover is necessary for the female connector, it will not harm the operation of the unit at all. You just need to use trays if you want ice.

Model TFX25PR ; Does the ice cube maker require any lubrication ?


The type ice makers made for your model and other models require no lubrication and are one of the most used parts of your refrigerator especially if there is a large family and lots of ice used daily. They never seem to stop working while the average refrigerator last 15 to 20 years the average life of an ice maker is only 5 years. Even ice makers that have replaceable parts the repair parts are more expensive in most cases than complete replacement. Below is an example of an average ice maker that Whirlpool and Maytag uses that have the Teflon coating in the ice slots. Your model is for GE,=> Model WR30X10093 Ice Maker and has electronic controls and no replaceable parts. Thanks, Sea Breeze

HI, I have a Whirlpool Side-By-Side Refrigerator model ED25PQXW01 and the ice maker isn't working, how do I fix it??


Hi

Check to see that the refrigerator has power and is working. Reset or replace the fuse or circuit breaker in the house if needed, especially if a power outage has recently occurred. Make sure the water valve is connected to the refrigerator and is fully turned on. Ensure that the ice maker is turned on. Some Whirlpool refrigerator models have a switch located above the ice bin; some models have an arm that should be raised up to turn the ice maker on. The arm is also located above the ice bin. Clear away any ice cubes that may have gotten jammed in the ice maker, bin or dispenser that may be preventing ice cubes from moving as expected in the system. Use a plastic utensil to clear away any obstructions. Contact an authorized service center for assistance if the above steps do not fix the issue.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Thank you for contacting fixya.com

you've already done the first thing i suggest, and that is to change the water filter. But if you still cant get ice made, you have a problem with either your ice maker or your water valve, or an electrical issue in the ice maker system.
