Check the defrost drain/trap, its clogged, so the water cup is overflowing and water runs down the inside back of the unit. Clear the drain/trap and it should be fine.

WAS IT LEAKING FROM INSIDE THE FREEZER OR FROM BOTTOM OF FRIDGE? ONCE IN A WHILE YOU NEED TO TAKE OUT THE ICE BIN AND DUMP ICE OUT AND CLEAN IT. HOW CAN THE ICE MACHINE OVERFLOW WITH ICE WHEN THE ICE IN THE TRAY WON'T BUDGE? NEED CLARIFICATION. SOUNDS LIKE YOU EITHER HAVE A BAD ICE MAKER MODULE OR THE SOLENOID FOR THE ICE ON THE WATER VALVE IS BAD.

The ice cube tray in the automatic ice maker overfills with water. After the ice dumps, the water for the refill overflows the tray and some goes in the dump bin.


Good day,
Sounds like a bad water valve located in the rear bottom of the machine. (not shutting down properly).
Solution is to replace the valve.
In extremely rare cases it can be a faulty ice maker.
The ice maker sends power to the water valve for 7 seconds on each cycle. If the circuit board in the ice maker malfunctions, it could cause this problem.
But again, very rare.

Whirlpool Side by Side Bad Water Taste


Hi,

Most "new" fridges with water dispensers and ice instruct the consumer in there manuals to "bleed" the reservoir by running a couple of large pictures of water thru it. I usually recommend dumping the first few harvest's of ice as well (I believe this is also mentioned in most manuals too). once that is done the water should be fine as any contaminants in the system/reservoir should be gone. you may try changing the filter after this, but it shouldn't be necessary. most ice makers do not have there supply water travel thru the water dispenser reservoir however. the water filling the ice tray should have no baring on the water you dispense into a glass to consume.

hope that helps.

good luck

Whirlpool IceMagic Plus not working.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps the ice but doesn't refill , replace the ice maker . If it doesn't dump , and the cubes stay in the ice maker , replace the ice maker .

The switch on the icemaker for normal , runs the icemaker normaly . In the ice plus , a small fan comes on , blowing the inside air , over the ice maker mold , to help it freeze faster .

No water going in the ice maker but water dispener


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and does not dump , replace the icemaker . Check to make sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . If it does dump , and does not refill with water , replace the water inlet valve ( piece behind refrig where the wall water line connects to on the fridge ) . Check to make sure the fill tube that fills the icemaker is not blocked with ice , still indicating a bad water inlet valve ( slow seep ) .

Fridge Leaking


the icemaker can overfill causing water to run over into the freezer
the fill cup on the back of the icemaker could be frozen letting the water overflow into the freezer

if the fill cup is not frozen then you need a modlue for the ice maker if it is whirlpool built, if ge or frigidaire design then replace the icemaker

Water dispenser


wow that's agood one!!!! theres a short for sure, just a matter of where. somehow your energizing both sides of water valve at once, sounds as if it would be behind the dispensor, at the switches. would remove the dispensor cover and have a look for a bad switch or exposed wire
