    Default WSF26C3EXB01 Side by Side Whirlpool Leaking from freezer door

    Model Number: WSF26C3EXB01
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    My fridge looks to be leaking from the water lines going up into the freezer door (photos attached). The fridge door (right door) does not have the rust and calcium build up like the left door. Before ripping the whole door apart to continue investigating, I am curious if anyone has seen the issue and may know how to fix it! Thank you in advance!!

    Check the ice maker and water valve. It's most likely one or the other:

    The ice maker still makes ice just fine so I wouldn't think it would be the ice maker itself. There has to be a leak somewhere in that door. Are there valves in the door? If so, how do I get to them?

    Doesn't your machine have the "In-Door" ice maker? Is the ice maker in the freezer section or on the left door?

    The ice maker is in the left door and the leak is coming from the hole where the water lines go up inside the door.

    If the water valve or ice maker which is located above the dispenser developes a leak the water can run down the hole for the water lines because the rest of the door is foamed in insulation.

    I am actually having issues locating the valve. I see it in the parts manual but it does not do a good job illustrating its location within the left door. Are you able to help locate on a diagram or picture where it is?

    OK, if you don't see the fill valve then it's located behind the machine and not in the door. Check the condensate drain.

    Not the drain. Do you have any diagrams on how to get to the lines going up inside the door? I can't seem to get to any valves inside the door or to check if the tubing cracked. I can feel the drip coming out of the hole in the bottom left corner of the left door where lines go up.
