Default Ice Build-up In Freezer Drain Pan
Model Number: et1mhkxmt02   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Ice is NOT forming on evaperator but is forming in the drain pan. There is water in the fridge; both in and below the drawers. When I power down the unit and let the ice in the freezer melt, it doesn't drain anywhere. It appears that there is a drain fitting below the drain pan; but I can't see where it goes and I can't pass a wire through it.

How can I access this drian to clear it?

Hello,

The drain hole is located in the pan under the evaporator coils. You have to remove the rear panel in the freezer to access it.

Defrost it using a hair dryer. Run some hot water, using a turkey baster, through the drain to make sure it' clean.

Pull the refrigerator out of the wall and clean the other end of the drain.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Parts for Whirlpool ET1MHKXMT02 Refrigerator - AppliancePartsPros.com

Gene.

Gene,

Thanks for the advice. It took a long time before I finally got around to doing what you said--but it worked.

Thanks again,

Nick
