Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator model # ET1PHKXPQ00 ser# ER2137141, Type 21TFA, dated 05/2004. It runs fine, but I am getting water in the bottom of the refrigerator all the time now. A friend at work told me it could be a plugged freezer drain hose. I originally thought it was leaking ice cube trays, but after replacing them I'm still getting the water. I do not have an ice maker , just plastic trays. Is it hard to get to the hose to get it cleared out?

  • you need to remove the cover where the fan is mounted and you will see ice build up there is the hole but you may need to use hot water to clear the ice and clear the drain hole water should come out to the back of the refrigerator you need to remve the cover behind to see the drain line make sure to disconnect the unit before you work on it.

This is good! This indicates a defrosting system failure which is a simple control problem. It also means that the sealed system (compressor, evaporator coil, and all associated tubing) is fine as wine in summertime. Defrost system problems are easy fixes that anyone with a pulse can do with maybe just a little help from their friends. The problem will either be the defrost timer (or Adaptive Defrost Control board, if so equipped), the defrost thermostat, or the defrost heater. To locate these parts in your fridge, check out these cool, interactive parts diagrams.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Refrigerator Model ED25PW Ice maker tray not filling with water

  1. Check to see if water is flowing @ the water inlet valve @ the rear of the unit. You can remove it and clean if out-then put it back in service. You can purchase a new valve -- maybe @ home depot.

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

SOURCE: water dispenser on front of refrigerator door does not dispense water. Ice Cube maker continues to make ice cubes. Defrosting doesn't fix problem.

Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.

Freezer quit freezing


HI,

you can try this suggestion first.

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

any further question let me know.

thanks,

Water continuously running to fridge, overflowing?


Hi, if the only way you could stop the water was to turn it off at the water source, you need to change the water inlet valve. Make sure you check the water fill line for any leaks before you change the valve.
If I canassist you in getting the vavle, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

Looking for refrigerator use and care guide for mod.ed2vhextbo1 ser.hrt4930458 and info about changing filter and type of filter


i do not think that is a good model serial number. at least not the format that whirlpool has used in several years or in the u.s.a.

the model serial numbers should be on a tag easily located with out moving unit.

unless this is a vendared product with a Whirlpool name on it (usually a dorm frig or the like)
