SOURCE: water dripping from freezer

a quick fix I found is to hang a peice of copper wire from the defroster bar in the freezer and let it hang into the drain tube when the defroster bar gets hot it heats the copper to prevent the freezing,but the thing you should do is check the resistance with an ohm meter across the defroster bar,if its ok its the defroster assembly located in the fridge

SOURCE: Whirlpool GD25DF auto defrost drain problem

There is a drain hole in the back of the freezer on the bottom. Get back there with some hot water. Most of the time it is just lime build up. Unless you know what feel back there. Another way is to move the freezer out and from the back side you can see the drain line. It just pulls right off

SOURCE: Freezer won't drain

If the water is showing on the freezer side, more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt. If thats not an option that you want to use the actual repair method would be to 1) unplug the machine 2) empty everything out of the freezer so you'll have room to work 3) take all the shelving and baskets out 4) locate the screws on the rear wall inside the freezer and remove them 5) take the back panel off exposing the evaporator coils ( the aluminum ) 6) directly below the coils is a trough of sorts and the drain is usually in the middle and runs out the bottom, remove the ice by carefully chipping it out or by using a hair dryer or hot water. 7) once all the ice is gone, the drain is visible and water can flow smnoothly down the drain dry the area and reassemble.

Water is leaking from under the freezer compartment onto the top shelve of my whirlpool refrigerator


Hello,

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

Good luck,

Gene

My refrigerator has water running down from under freezer and there is no water in the drain pan.


Your drain line is clogged from the freezer to the pan. The drain line and drain pan are located behind the back freezer wall panel.

TOP FREEZER REFRIGERATOR WITHOUT ICEMAKER LEAKS ONTO TOP SHELF AND UNDER BOTTOM DRAWER


the condensate drain hose is blocked.
remove the plastic rear cover in the freezer; locate the drain opening;
it's about 1/2 inch in diameter; it drains into a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. using a funnel and, a small pan, pour hot water through the blocked hose until water flows into the drain pan again.
remove the condensate pan pour the water out and, reinstall the pan.
