    Default icemaker leaking water into ice cube bucket

    Model Number: ET20DKXSW01
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: More than 10 years

    Our icemaker is leaking water into our ice bucket. Ice was still being made at the time. I turned off the water supply in the rear of the refrigerator. Any suggestions to fix the leak? Thanks.

    Hi,

    ET20DK is just a partial model number, we need the full model number.

    Click here: Appliance Parts at RepairClinic. 125 Brands. 365 Day Returns.

    Then you will see a link that says: Help me find my model number.

    Is it a constant water drip from when it fills the ice maker? Also Feel inside your ice maker tray and see how high the ice comes up in the tray, if it comes all the way to the very top then its likely a bad ice maker module.

    Hi Jake

    Thanks for your help. The full model number is Whirlpool ET20DKXSW01. The ice maker still makes ice and fills the tray. However, the icemaker drips water into the tray and mixes with the ice cubes. We then have a solid block of ice. So I turned off the water feed valve.

    Ok, now this model uses an addon ice maker kit, so that means it didn't come from the factory with an ice maker installed, so you or someone had to of installed the ice maker kit when you bought this refrigerator new.

    Here's the ice maker kit for your model:
    Ice Maker Assembly 1129316 Order now for same day shipping. 365 day return policy. RepairClinic.com



    So the problem your having is the water inlet valve is not shutting the water off completely, thus the dripping into the tray, its the blue part in the photo above. So that's all you would need to replace, now since this is an addon ice maker kit there is no part number listed on your parts listing for this refrigerator model, you would need to pull the refrigerator out from the wall, then remove the lower back access panel and read me the part# listed on the blue water inlet valve itself, then I can cross reference the water inlet valve part number and post the link here so you can order it.
