Ice in one side if top freezer and water ending up in bottom of fridge under crisper


Check to see if your ice maker is leaking. If it is not, or if you have no ice maker, you'll need to unplug the refrigerator for several hours to allow all of the ice to melt inside, mop up all of the water from the melted ice, then make sure that the inlet ports in the freezer are not obstructed by plastic food packages or anything else, so that air can flow freely within the cooling channels between the 'fridge and the freezer. (It sounds like ice has built up in the duct that runs between the freezer fan and the refrigerator compartment, usually caused by the vents in the freezer being blocked by packages.)

Leaking water


Did you inspect if the hole in the drain inside the fridge at the bottom is not blocked? Try to clean it with a swab. Sometimes this causes a "leakage" of condensed water.

Water leaking from whirlpool gold refrigerator


When refrigerators leak water it usally is a sign that the defrost drain found inside the rear of freezer and behind the rear panel of freezer has become clogged with ice or gunk.

I have a Whirlpool Fridge, Model: ET1CHMXKBo4, Seriel# ES1314778 that leaks water inside the body of the fridge and drips down into the bottom right chrisper tray. I have take the drain line loose to see...


It sounds like the drain is stopped up. The place you need to check is inside freezer section remove all food unplug unit and remove screws to take back panel off. Look at bottom of fzr in back you will see the bottom of the evaporator and the heat element just below that will be a aluminum pan that sounds like the start of drain is stopped up. You can use hot water and a hair dryer to remove ice you will know when drain is unstopped when you can pour hot water down drain and it completely drains. Be sure not to use more then a cup or two because you can overflow the lower drain pan. If that happens you will need to mop up water in floor. Sometimes you can use a small screw driver to help in ice removal process just be careful because you could damage the plastic liner of the refrigerator.

Listened to other posts and figured drain plug was clogged. It was with ice. Removed bottom pan and back panel of freezer, removed ice on bottom, put hot water in drain to thaw ice until it flowed into pan underneath fridge. Thanks for the ideas.

Our Whirlpool top freezer unit is leaking water into the refrigerator. The model number is ET21NKXGW01 and at the top of the inside of the fridge, water is draining out into the fridge. The defrosting...


We were able to fix the freezer water leak. We unscrewed the false freezer floor and the inside back panel. Ice had accumulated on the freezer floor and the defrosting drain was frozen. We removed the ice by using a blow dryer then poured boiling hot water onto the frozen drain hole. The frozen water in the drain pipe hole eventually melted and the water released into the defrosting drip pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. Problem solved. We no longer have water leaking into the refrigerator.
