Purchase a screw extractor the right size. It's like a reverse fluted drill bit. Use an appropriate extension and a reversable drill. Or.. find or cut a round piece of rubber in a cone shape of the right size to insert and grab the broken piece to spin it out CCW.

My fridge started leaking when I try to dispense water.

The drain is clogged. Get to the drain like you did before. Get a straw, use some tape and wrap it around the end of straw to make a tight fit for the drain hole. Blow into the straw to remove the clog.

Why does water filter leak when tightly connected but not when loose?

It makes sense if there is a crack in the filter housing that is made more severe by tightening the fitting. Also, a fitting could be stripped from overtightening.

I have a Whirlpool fridge that needs a new water filter. Twice now, when I remove the filter to change it, water gushes out even though the ice maker is OFF. I quickly turn off the water line and mop

The Whirlpool fridge requires a water supply connection to a cold water line. Before you connect the water supply to the water line on the fridge, make certain the unit is unplugged from the wall. Press the button and drop down the cover. Then twist to release the old filter and twist the new one into the filter head. Run about 2 gallons of water through dispenser to remove any air from the lines. Liquid EPDM Rubber Roof Coatings for Roof Leaks Repair EPDMCoatings

Water filter won't release

Is it a push fit or screw in? Gently push up and twist anticlockwise if it's screw in. If it's push fit depress the inner part where the hose goes in and pull the hose at the same time. MAKE SURE the water tap is off before doing it and preferably unplug the fridge too.

Putting in the new water filter to the Whirlpool gold fridge that goes in at the bottom.

Removing a water filter from the base grill of your Whirlpool brand refrigerator:

Removing and replacing a water filter - base grill location

Filters situated in the base grill (below the freezer compartment) of Whirlpool-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these two steps:
  1. Grasp the filter's end and make a one-quarter turn to the left.
  2. Pull the filter straight out.
To replace with a new filter, repeat these two steps in the opposite order, making sure to first remove the red cap from the filter. Proceed by pushing the filter straight into the slot, and then giving it a one quarter turn to the right.
Note: Replacing this type of filter is quick - there is no need to unplug your refrigerator when replacing it. Also, this filter should be replaced every six months.

Waterline on back of refridgerator keeps popping out and leaking

There should be a compression fitting that seals the water tube to the fridge. The fitting looks like a brass or plastic nut that the tubing sticks into. Shut off water supply to the fridge and carefully remove the fitting nut...there should be cone shaped compression ring inside the fitting nut. Slide the nut over the tube, then the compression ring over the tube. If the compression ring is tapered towards one end, then put the narrow end towards the end of the tube. Now stick the tube up to the fitting on the fridge where the nut screws on to the fridge. Hold the tubing firmly against the fitting and slide the compression ring and nut up to the fitting and screw the nut back on (compression ring should be inside the nut). You must hold the tubing firmly against the fitting until you get the nut tightened back down good with a wrench. This should take care of it.

If you find that the tip of your tube end is damaged, then you may have to cut off the tip of the tube to get it to seal and hold. If you find that the compression ring is damaged (won't slide over the tubing) or missing, then you can go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get a new nut and compression ring...they are cheap. You can also get new tubing there if you need it.

Our whirlpool fridge keeps filling up with water on the shelves and drawers

Remove the food from the freezer so the back panel can be removed . If you have an icemaker , it will have to be removed also (3 ) screws . Remove the screws holding the back panel and remove . Without model number . can't tell you if the freezer bottom has to be removed also . Once the rear freezer panel is removed , defrost the pan below the coils until you see the drain hole . Then , keep defrosting the drain hole until the water flows thru . Hot water could help to defrost the hole . Once defrosted , get an ALUMINUM fence tie or ALUMINUM wire (14-16 guage) about 9" long , completely stripped of insulation , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without much force . Wrap the other end 1 to 11/2 turns around the black rod (heater) above the drain hole . Cut off excess wire . When the fridge goes into defrost , the heat from the heater , will transfer thru the aluminum wire and keep the drain hole from freezing up again . After this is done , reinstall all that was removed , then the frozen food .

Water leak at filter

I had this with a Kitchenaid Superba and wanted to get rid of the filter holder assembly entirely as I have an undersink unit which serves the fridge. I removed the plastic line (nut) at the back of the fridge (which led to the filter holder at the front) where the flexible copper tubing inserted (this was a 3/8' compression fitting-plastic) and also the returning line (1/4" copper compression nut on a plastic line) at the manifold (again in the back of the fridge) where it gets split between the water line and the ice line. I then just connected the 1/4" flexible copper directly to the manifold (1/4" nut, compression sleeve, male-male connector) using a pre-made 1/4" flexible compression line. Sounds complicated but after seeing how the water routes it was fairly quick work.
