Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker
It is leaking water in a steady stream from the air circulation vent from the freezer to the frig. It does it when I think it goes in to defrost mode. There is no water in the evaporation pan under the frig however.
I had the same problem with a whirlpool refrigerator with freezer on top. TURN OFF & UN-PLUG IT. To access the freezer drain you must pull the refrig out from the wall and take off the bottom-back panel, it uses some (7) small nut headed screws. The drain is the white tube on the left going into the drain pan. You can push a long wire or plastic hose up the tube, however that will probably only hit something solid (ice) and blowing air may not clear it, until you let the freezer completely thaw out, which may take several days. The following may help experienced do-it-yourself nuts, it is not for the faint of heart! I took out all the freezer items and placed them in coolers to keep them frozen. Then removed the back panel in the freezer, two nut headed screws at the top center. The bottom of this panel was frozen to the bottom of the freezer compartment, so I used a hair-dryer to thaw it enough to loosen it. (Be careful: water and electricity do not mix well!) The left side of this panel has some electrical control wires attached, so the left side will not come out, just rotate the panel and lean it against the left side of the compartment. Now use the hair dryer (or pour hot water on it) to melt the ice along the bottom back of the compartment under the freezer coils. BE CAREFUL: The fins are sharp and will cut! Do not bend them. If they are all frozen up your heating element-defroster may be out. If there is only ice along the bottom, the hair-dryer or hot-water will help melt it to the point it can be removed. If the drain hole at the back-bottom-center-right is plugged with ice, poor hot water on it to speed up its melting. The hair drier will not do this very fast and you cannot chip it out without damaging the plug hole. Mine was solid ice about 2 inches into the tube and hot water finally thawed it. Then pour water through the hole to flush it out. Clean the bottom drain pan & re-assemble. Good luck.

HI thanks for the question The drain tube Is clogged up . You have to turn fridge off for 24 hrs . Because the drain hose goes down to the drain pan , it goes between the walls. So you cant access it to clean it out Get a small hose and push It up the drain tube from the bottom ,and blow Up the hose to clear the debris
