Question about Whirlpool ET8CHEXSQ Dryer

1 Answer

Whirlpool Refrigerator Hi, I have a Whirlpool Refrigerator, 4 yrs. old, Model ET8CHMXKQO. This week I've notice water building up under the Crispers. I dried it completely out, then this morning I notice a little more. Why is this happening? Do I need to have a serviceman come and repair it? Thanks for your help.

    I have the same problem. The water is clear. I turned the water to the icemaker off and the leak stopped. I suspect the valve that turns off the water is seeping. How do I solve - confirm this?

This is similar to what I had a while back. There is either a seal break which is allowing air to get in or the door itself is not closing well or wtaer is coming in from the vent that sends cold/cool air in from the freezer side. At this point you do not need a service tech particularly if it is operating properly. Is the water clear or does it have a color to it? Let me know so I can be of further help.

I have Model ET8CHMXKQO-3 whirlpool fridge with the same problem. The problem I believe is due to the drain line to the tray that collects defrost water freezing up. Temporary solution is defrosting the fridge; permanent solution is running a thin wire thru the drain line that aparently prevents the condensing water from freezing. I am trying to find out how to install this wire and where to buy it.

2006 Whirlpool 20.9 cu ft, freezer on top, model # 60192ET1chm Water is going into crispers and under the crispers. Problem is ?

If you access the panel in the rear of the unit, check the evaporator tray, is it dry? It shouldn't be! If so, check the drain hose above it. It is likely plugged.

Ice build up

You should to check the Whirlpool Gladiator Freezerator's door sealer to make sure all rubber or plastic seal very well to prevent air humidity come in to build up frost fast. Also, you have to defrost completely and wipe with cloth or paper towel to absorb all waters out and let it dry completely to prevent frost build up.

Amana refrigerator top freezer going out; water under crispers

Hi jimorso,
Your theory is correct. You will have to defrost the drain and clear any other obstructions to get the water draining correctly again. To do this you will have to go in through the freezer. Remove the back panel by removeing the 3-4 screws that hold the back wall in place. You will see the drain directly under the coil. It will be a small hole and it will most likely be covered with ice. YOu will need to defrost all the ice and clear the drain. If the coils are frosted up you may have other issues like a defrost heater that is bad. The defrost heater is directly under the coils and you can simply check for continuity through the heater.
The drain is sometimes difficult to defrost, I use a towel to dry water, and I use cups of hot water to pour onto the ice, then just dry up the mess as you make it. You can also rub the drain with your finger to help defrost. I also use a flexable ruber hose to blow air into the drain untill the drain is clear again. If you have any other questions please just ask. I hope this will FixYa. Please dont forget to rate me.

Amana refrigerator top freezer going out; water under crispers

you are right about the cause of water in the fridge - blockage in the drain. i'v never met this caused by ice but it is possible.
with the freezer, the cause of the fault is the fan not working - probably jammed with ice. take back panel off inside freezer and check for ice build up. if loads of ice thgen defrost system has failed. you can do a temporary repair by melting the ice off with a hairdryer

The drain line that comes through the casing may be plugged or the trap at the bottom of the hose where it drains into the drain pan under the refrigerator may be plugged. If water is freezing it is because it is being held back by a restriction.
