How do I remove the water tray from my Whirlpool refrigerator?
ANSWER Hello JP, To remove the drip tray, when you pull it all the way out you lift in the back and it should come off. There is a lip that it catches on to keep from sliding all the way out.
How do you remove waste water from a refrigerator?
Look inside the back panel or kick panel to find the drip pan, which should look like a small rectangular tray. Grab the drip pan with both hands and try pulling it out without tipping it over. If your drip pan can be removed, then it will come out of the fridge easily.
Why is my refrigerator drain pan overflowing?
A clogged or cracked defrost drain tube could also cause the leak. Excessive frost caused by a leaking door seal can also cause the defrost drain pan to overflow. If you see the refrigerator drain pan full of water and overflowing, check the door gaskets and replace them if damaged.
Where does refrigerator drain water go?
A refrigerator constantly produces condensation inside its freezer compartment. The liquid that forms drips down a drain pipe into a pan underneath the appliance where it eventually evaporates.
What causes water in fridge?
Things like debris, bugs, and mold can dirty the pan and cause water there to back into the fridge when it doesn’t evaporate fast enough. A thorough cleaning should be enough to get this part back up and running. You can also purchase a new one if cleaning the old one squicks you out!
Do all refrigerators have drip trays?
While refrigerators vary in design, the drip pan is almost universally located in the bottom of the unit. In many refrigerators, you can access the drip pan from this area. In other models you may need to slide the refrigerator out from the wall and get to the pan from the bottom, rear of the unit.
Why does the water not drain away in my fridge?
This can be caused by the fridge being overfilled, preventing air from moving around and keeping the fridge frost-free. If ice builds up, this can stop water from draining out of the fridge. Once the fridge is free from ice, it’s a good idea to check the drainage hole to make sure it’s clear before turning it back on.
Do Whirlpool refrigerators have drip pans?
The drain pan will be behind the panel at the back of the unit. You will want to clean the drain pan out the best you can because it isn’t designed to be removed from the unit.
