I'm need to replace my current Marvel water removal pump (tp # 41005044. I'm being told this pump is not available.
My question is the Whirlpool 1901a pump a closed system? Meaning if the pump should fail will it a) shut down the ice maker, and, b) not allow the water from the melting ice to leak out the pump sump.
ANSWER Hello Vic,
The pump is designed to pump water away from unit to an alternate source when draining. In the event of a failure the pump is designed to shut unit down. The melting ice will go directly to the pump to be pumped out when necessary.
