Hello, there might be a crack in the condesate pan. Usually if the leak is concentrated in one area that is the cause. If the water would be leaking all around then a blockage in the drain line would be a problem. Have the drain pan inspected.

I would shut water off and relieve pressure. Remove filter houseing and inspect rubber gasket on bath sides, clean it off and clean inside of cap where gasket sets and on top of housing. Make sure there are no rough spot on either surface. If there are you can smooth them out by using fine grit sandpaper,no coarser then 120 grit. Wipe all surfaces clean and apply 5-6 wraps of teflon tape on threads on filter housing. Before you put gasket back in place you can put a light coating of petroleum jelly,vaseiline or similar,on both sides of gasket. wipe off excess. Reinstall filter and housing. tighten securely. Turn water back on and check for leaks. If it still leaks you can tighten a little more. If it still leaks I would replace gasket. Hope this helps.Thanks

I think your unit is clogged somewhere, the water should drain into a pan under the freezer and down a tube to a pan under the fridge which is located just behind the front kick plate. here it should evaporate NOW if the tube gets clogged the water has to to go someplace. meaning the leaking water may not exactly be coming from where you are thinking, it could be somewhere up stream. you could apply some silcon on the poits you suspect and see.

Leaking water

mcdevito75 here, The portion of the a/c unit that goes outside the window is the evaporator and suppose to leak water, check the drain hole in the unit floor on the outside portion of the unit, reach this drain hole thru another window or have your local a/c repair shop look at it, they come to the house.

We have an Estate Whirlpool Side by Side Fridge and the water filter is leaking. Should we change the filter? When we remove the filter the dripping stops but as soon as we re-install the filter and twist...

You have done some good work, and you are right on the money. Yes you need a new filter. There are o-rings that seal on each filter. These wear out but when you replace the filter you naturally get new o-rings and they seal better :) These seals used to be in the housing, but you can see the problem with that. Once those wear out, you have a much worse problem replacing those then with a filter. It's perfect really, you change the filter because you have too, and get a new seal at the same time!

2002 suburban has leak in driver side rear floor. Cannot see where water would be coming from?

We had same--water on driver side rear floor (soaked!). Driver side front floor seemed dry until feeling UNDER rug, was slightly damp. We found the location of TWO leaks causing this.

Leak #1 was through the parking brake line/cable seal; Recaulked with silicone. Removed plastic trim on floor between floor and door to reveal metal channel filled with water.

Leak #2 was where the door meets the car, near the hinge. It was the accordian-looking tube housing the wiring for the door. The big, rubber, circular plug connecting it to the main part of the car had come loose and water ran down through that, into the SAME metal channel filled with water from leak #1; will seal with silicone.

Note: We found that the channel filled extensively near the front door, BUT the carpet edge from the floor near the rear seat was dipping into it, wicking it up to the rear floor. Also, upon acceleration, the water in the channel gushed toward the back, thus soaking the rear carpet.

These leaks were found by removing all plastic trim (covering edges of carpet by doors), then one of us pouring water into specific areas of the exterior of the vehicle, and the other one watching closely with a flashlight for any signs of dripping.

The water lines from the filter housing leak at the solenoid and are dripping at the filter. It is a Whirlpool gold series side by side

you should be able to push in the ring around the tube at the same time pull the tube out
cut about 1/4 in off and push it back into the hose clip
unless your line is craked this should work for most drip leaks
