Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker

1 Answer

We have a Whirlpool refrigerator model ET1MTKXKQ07. We have recently had a problem with water pooling inside the refrigerator. We know that the drain line must be stopped up, because there isn't anything in the drain pan. Where is the drain line? It isn't in the back of the refrigerator.

There is no drain line as the only water that goes into the refrigerator is the water that goes into the ice maker. The out side water only goes into a glass or spilled on the floor.

I suspect that your inlet water solonoid is not reseating properly after the ice maker signals it to close. It opens by an electro magnet and closes by spring pressure. You may have to have it replaced. The ice maker rotats and hits a micro switch that sends power to the solonoid that snaps it open and is held as long as the switch is depressed. when the cam on the rotating vane passes the micro switch lever, the switch goes back to normal taking the power off of the solonoid, and spring pressure snaps it back in the closed position. This cam is timed to just fill up your ice tray.

I have a whirlpool refrigerator, model GR9FHMXPQ. I got it about 4 years ago. When it was delivered, it had several pieces of styrofoam lodged in the inside ceiling of the fridge section (below the freezer...


You need to remove all of the styrofoam packing material.
Any insulation material would be installed inside the body of the fridge/freezer. The packing material is there so anything inside the compartment (like metal shelves, plastic holders, etc. don't bounce around during shipping and either scratch up the interior, or break. That is all that it is there for.

Your defrost drain is most likely blocked with ice or sludge. Now when your refrigerator goes into defrost it pours into base of freezer or just anywhere it can to pool up.

Refrigerator leaks water on the inside underneath the freezer


The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

Water is dripping down the back of the refrigerator inside and pool in the bottom of the refrigerator. Whirlpool/ freezer on top ET-1CHMXKQ02. Freezer is still working and icemaker is still making ice.


Defrost drain tube is clogged. Have to clear this by removing back wall inside freezer and removing the ice build up inside the defrost tray and tube. Very very hot water and hairdryer will help with this process. hope this helps.

Whirlpool drain clog


yes it is most likely the drain that is plugged and or frozen up. to repair this you will need to remove the rear access cover inside the freezer compartment clear all the ice from the drain pan and flush hot water thru the drain hole located in the drain pan. this is a fairly easy repair you can do youself. the hardest part will be removing and reinstalling the rear cover. good luck peyton.
BTW I use a turkey baster or large syringe filled with hot water to flush the drain line with.

Water pools under the veggie crisper


yoor problem is with the drain, when your refrig goes into self defrost the water melted from the defrost needs some where to go. There is a drain for this purpose....it is normally a tube that leads from the rear of freezer to pan by compressor. when this gets blocked the water has nowhere to go except into the freezer vent and down the bottom of the refridge compartment. you will need to clear the blockage in the drain tube...if you are still haveing a problem i can tell you how.
