Question about Whirlpool GX5FHTXVA Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
Posted by Anonymous on
remove back panel inside freezer. you will see a tray at the bottom with a drain hole in the middle and this is blocked with ice. melt ice off with a hairdryer and follow up with hot water till water flows away freely

If it's flooding, it's NOT the drain pan. It's probably the water valve has gotten stuck in the open position. Hope this helps!

This water is accumulated during the automatic defrost cycle, which occurs every 24-hours. A fan is supposed to pull air over it to evaporate it.
Clean all the dust and lint accumulation from under the unit, remove the condensation collection pan and clean it, and make sure the bottom fan is running.
I can't emphasize strongly enough how much of an enemy the accumulation of dirt and dust under a refrigerator can be its worst enemy. It can make the refrigerator exhibit symptoms of much more serious problems. Sometimes a good cleaning can have it operating like new with no real 'repairs' whatsoever.

On a side by side machine, that is almost always the fan motor in the freezer compartment not working.
When you open the freezer door, you should be able to hear it run.
If not, you can access the motor by removing the rear panel in the freezer panel and inspect.
If it needs replaced it is a simple nuts and bolts repair.

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...
