Question about Whirlpool ET1FTKXK Top Freezer Refrigerator
Inside the refigerator, there is water accumulating towards the back of the shelves. it looks like it is coming from the vents in the back of the fridge. it also ends up accumulating under the crispers.
Jeets, remove the bottom panel from the freezer by removing the 2 quarter inch screws up front. See if you have a sheet of ice under it. If you do, you probably have a frozen drain tube in back. When the unit goes into defrost the water is running down the air vents instead of the drain tube. If this is the case, you will have to remove the back panel in the freezer and clear the drain hole. Use hot water if it is frozen over....Catriver..post back.

Here is the link to the manual if you need it; http://www.whirlpool.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZUSECARE/2314472.pdf especially this time of year there can be a massive increase in humidity which often is the cause - the only real cure is to dehumidify the room and try and limit how often you open the fridge. even if the water seems like too much for this to be the cause, you would be surprised how much condensation humid air can produce - I assume everything else seems to be working as normal? ask again if you don't find what you need. check this link too; http://whirlpool.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/whirlpool.cfg/php/enduser/std_alp.php?p_page=1&p_cv=1.113&p_pv=1.137&p_prods=137&p_cats=113&p_search_text=&p_new_search=1 Hope this helps :)

Add a short peice of aluminum wire wrapped around the heater going about two inches into the drain hole. This acts like a heat sink to keep the drain warm till the water runs down the hole.

A repairman replaced a timer that controlls the auto-defrost cycle three months ago. I haven't had to defrost since then, and find that my milk doesn't go bad as fast.

I have the same problem, every to months after cleaning freezes up again. Just ordered a heat probe from whirlpool $15. It is suppose to keep it from freezing up.
