Sounds like the drain line is clogged. In your freezer you have a drain line that takes the defrosted ice (now water) and goes down to the collection pan under the fridge. Can you take off the back panel and inspect the drain line opening it is located under the coils in the middle. Now it more then likely is ice that has formed and isn't melting, take some regular table salt and with a table spoon put on the blocked section. Just 2 table spoons is all you need to put on it. Hopefully within 20 min. you will have a clear drain and be able to replace the back panel. Let me know what you find out. ken

Water appearing on glass above crispers and onto the floor under the crispers. Happens only occasionally. No obvious source of leak. Back of fridge wall not wet.


Do you have a cooling plate at the rear or the fridge with a narrow tray at the bottom to collect the defrost water? Check the drain hole for obstruction.

There is water collecting continuously at the bottom of my fridge under the crispers. Do you know how I can fix?


Most frost free refrigerators take water from the freezer so you do not have to defrost the freezer. That being said there should be a drain under the crisper. Check to see if it is clogged.
you may need to put something under the refrigerator to collect the water..

My Whirlpool refrigerator, model GT22DMXGW00, leaks. Water is accumulating in the bottom-underneath the right hand side crisper. It then drains out onto the kitchen floor. Some is freezing too. It is...


check the ice door flap where ice drops into a glass.sometimes the flap doesn't close completely and allows heat to enter threw the flap.this causes frost to build and melt thus you have water you can't explain. hope this helps.

Water in bottom left crisper drawer and under drawer


I'm sorry to say that it sound as though your door gasket may no longer be sealing correctly.

For me, it's simply a task of getting a replacement gasket for that make and model.

To remove the old one you would, simply, peel the inside of the gasket toward the outside of the edge of the door revealing the mounting screws. Remove these screws all the way around and replace with the new one in the same fashion...

The reason that I recommend this is that humid air outside of the refrigerator can seep past a worn gasket and condense on the inside surfaces making its way to the bottom and into those drawers.

My Whirlpool refrigerator (Model ET21GKXHT01) has water on the shelves, in and under the crispers. I can't see where it's coming from. I don't see any plugged hoses. Help!


condensation with collect on any shinny surface,have you put uncovered food in the fridge or left the door open,refilled the fridge with food from the mall,especially veg,or is it very humid at this time.also check door seals for fit all round as an air leak will not help.

Why is water pooling under the crisper drawers? someone mentioned a humidity problem but there aren't any controls so what do I do? whirlpool ET18GMXHW0


Check the water reservoir behind the crispers for a leak. It could be a clogged defrost drain also. If you keep a jug of drinking water in the frig check closely for a pinhole. These are my first places to look.

Whirlpook ET21NK--Water collecting in crispers


Self-defrosting refrigerators turn themselves off to defrost once in each 24-hour cycle. There is a 'drip pan' under the refrigerator that catches water from this automatic defrost cycle. The pan is not very deep, so if the unit is leaning very much, water will run over the top of the pan. For this and other reasons, you should try to keep the unit as level as possible.

DEFROSTING/ WATER RUNNING ONTO FLOOR & INSIDE FRIDGE


Check to see if the run-off tube at the back is plugged.

I dont know how old the fridge is - but if it a couple years old check at the back or the fridge - there should be a tube running down the back of the fridge down into the bottom tray. This tube funnels water from the freezer (condensation, or water from the defrost) down onto the tray holding the compressor where it evaporates with help from the heat off the compressor. Sometimes this tube can get plugged up with some scum or mineral deposits, causing the built up water to drain from inside the fridge.

The tube shouldn't be too hard to remove and clean out with some hot water and pipe cleaners. Had the same issue on on a GE fridge last year.
Hope this helps!

Whirlpool has water drip inside fridge


sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine
