The problem is likely a blocked drain from your defrost system.  As the system defrosts, liquid water should make its way to a pan in the condenser area under the box to be evaporated.  Clearly, something is causing overflow or the tube has broken.  You'll have to eyeball it out.

Sometimes you have to pour very hot water (and maybe some baking soda) down the drain in the rear of the freezer compartment with a funnel or turkey baster.

Water inside refrigerator


Because your model has an evaporator located inside the fresh food compartment it also will have a drain opening below that evaporator. This is a common problem with these dual evaporator models that have drain blockage caused by ice or gunk blocking the drain and causing water to flow below the crisper drawers. Sea Breeze

My whirlpool refrigerator Model ET18PKX6W00 leaks water under vegetable bins


Check behind the bins for a condensation tray/hose. Most refrigerators have these as they develop condensation due to the temperature differences when opening and closing the door. The tray catches the condensation, and drains it to a tray under the fridge. Here it evaporates when the compressor runs. Sometimes things block the tray or the hose gets clogged with gunk. clean out the tray/hose and hopefully your problem will end.

Hoover Contour refrigerator HE383TF. Water is leaking inside the fridge. It appears as a puddle under the vegetable compartment and then leaks onto the floor. I have completely defrosted and then poured...


Could be the little red stopper at the back of the fridge on the inside has come off, and this is where the water is coming from, look inside on the lower shelf and you will see a round opening which should have a red stopper in it.

Compartments are not real cold/ ice maker stopped working too


It sounds like your refrigerant was leaking out. There may be some settled at the bottom that would explain the frozen water on the bottom. a good appliance store should be able to find the leak fix it and add more refrigerant.

Water despenser is apparently frozen


You may have two mutually exclusive probems... one being the water dispenser doesn't dispense water... As you stated, the obvious remedy would be to replace your filter to see if that is restricting water flow.. secondly, your vegetable crisper is freezing vegetables... chances are that the inlet between the freezer compartment and that vegetable darwer is near there and the damper needs to be closed a bit... See if you can locate the cold air inlet vent and partially close the damper ... Hope that helps...
