Question about Whirlpool ET0WSRXML Top Freezer Refrigerator
Water leaks down into the refrigerator from somewhere and it spills out on the floor. We do not have an icemaker or a water source hooked to the refrigerator, so the water must be condesation. Someone suggested something wrong with the automatic defroster? This has been going on to some degree for a year or more, but not constantly. Should I just get a new refrigerator? The freezer and refrigerator both cool well.
Water from the melted evaporator frost is normally drained down to a pan mounted on the compressor . The heat from the compressor is normally enough to vaporize this water. Sometimes the evaporation may be reduced due to- high humidity (in the kitchen). Try keeping the exhaust fan on for a while. Also check if the drain line is blocked or shifted out of the drain pan.

The problem is the drain is clogged. Remove the back panel in your freezer and at the bottom of the evaporator coil you will see a hole about ½" in diameter this is the drain tube. Try using a turkey baster to flush out the drain tube. You might need to use some warm water to melt the ice and then run a wire being very careful not to puncture the hose and run it down the tube to free up the drain. This tube travel down to the bottom of your refrigerator to a pan sometimes located on top of the compressor or somewhere else down there. It collects the water there to evaporate. After cleaning mix a 50 -50 solution of baking soda and water and run some down the drain tube this should help prevent future clogs.
