My Whirlpool refrigerator has a horrible smell coming out of it. All food has been removed and nothing went bad. When taking off the back panel, I the same putrid smell is coming from where the water line goes into the water inlet valves. I was wondering if anyone else has this problem (or ideas of how to fix it) and if so how did you fix it.
ANSWER Hi Hank. The condenser coils and the cond. fan need to be cleaned. The drain pan might be full of dust/debris that have turned into mold. This will need to be cleaned well also. You can also take crumpled up newspaper and put it in the center of the cabinet and let it run for a few days. If you think it is a water issue, then you can change the water chute, this is part # 2209774. The water tubing kit is part # 4387492. Thank you.
