Hello,

We have the Whirlpool Gold WRF736SDAM11 fridge at the house and it has been leaking for some time now from the area where you hook up the water filter. Just goes drip, drip and we put a small dish under it but I'd like to fix it once and for all now. The water filter has the two small lights next to it that illuminate the fridge when the doors are open. It almost looks like the water leaks through the slits right next to the light, when the water dispenser is used. I hope that some in-house experts have an idea of what the issue may be and how to fix it.

Thank you

Hi,

Usually when its leaking from the water filter area its a bad water filter housing.

Here's the water filter housing for your model:
Water Filter Housing W11194438


Its a bit of a job to get access to it, but there are instructions in the Question and Answer Section that should help here: W11194438 Housing
