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.

This is a common problem when the defrost condensate drain becomes blocked. Depending on the location of the blockage is the clue to how to prevent the blockage. Most times the blockage begins inside the freezer and overflows into the freezer creating a huge area of ice while at other times the blockage is just as it leaves the freezer and makes its turns going down to the pan below your refrigerator to reevaporate into the air inside your home. On the link below the whole page shows way of this happening and ways to stop it and resolve the problem. Read the entire page and use the part that most refers to you leaking problem.

SOURCE: my whirlpool refrigerator/freezer is not

Switch off the fridge for few hours then before you you switch on check the continuity of the main power cord to the compressor which comes thrrough the main relay. Now the relay is activated by the thermostat/pressure switch/defrost timer.
So you will be able to trace the path of the power to activate the compressor. however if the relay clicks and shuts off the the capacitor must be checked or replaced. However if there is a heavy drain of current- use a clamp tester meter- the compresssor can be a suspect.
Please check this link for a idea of the parts.

Whirlpool dryer M#gew9250pw1 need to know how to hook up ground on 3prong plug

when looking at the prongs on the plug ,the bottom pin is the earth/ground pin
if you look closely at the face of the plug ,there should be letters a for one pin ,n for another and e for the last pin
IN Australia the earth wire (E)is a yellow wire with a green trace on it,
red will be active (a)and black is neutral (N)
the earth wire goes from the plug pin to a metal part of the machine
If you have to ask then for safety sake maybe you should get an electrician in

Hello, this is your temp sensor wire that leads to your thermostat. It engages and turns off the compressor, it should be mounted with a plastic mounting holder right on the evaporator coil behind the filter.

Hello. Now that you are upgrading to the four prong you should unhook the green wire with yellow strip coming from the dryer and instead attach the extra green ground cord on the 4 prong to the screw on the side of the dryer. Regards, Joe.
