Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)
This will prevent water from comming out the freezer door and leaking onto your floor and running down your copper pipe to the basement.

Your drain line is frozen and not allowing the defrost water to drain to the pan below. The drain hole is at the bottom of the evaporator coil in the freezer behind the metal rear panel. You may need to remove the panel to access it. You can use hot water to thaw it out and you should be in good shape.

The ice maker is not working. The tube that refills the tray is


Good day,
The reason the fill tube is frozen is because the water valve on the back bottom of the machine is leaking. It is supposed to fill the ice maker after each harvest cycle and then close smartly.
It is leaking a small amount of water when the ice maker has told it to close.
The water valve is none serviceable and must be replaced.
You will have to completely defrost the fill tube. It can be a dicy problem, especially if rushed. Be patient. You can use a hair dryer but sparingly. Too much heat will start to melt things you don't want melted causing some nasty damage to the plastic and vinyl components. Ideally unplugging the machine and leaving the freezer door open overnight is the best way, but that creates problems with food if you have no where to store it.
The option is yours, but as said go slowly.

Ice is dumped before totally frozen.


Sounds like a water valve problem. The hollow ice cubes are the giveaway. This means not enough water. only things it can be is the ice maker is not turning on the water valve long enough or the water valve is restricted or the water valve has been leaking and has frozen the fill tube. and is only leting out a small amount of water in this case as well you will still need a new water valve.

start with water valve and if that does not solve the problem you will need to replace the ice maker.

Water inside bottom of freezer.


Water accumulation in the freezer more commonly points to the ice maker. Over a period of time, water entering the ice maker can slowly freeze to the point it provides a small restriction and prevents a portion of the water from entering the ice maker. The plastic spout/tube could also have either cracked or shifted and is allowing a small amount of water to leak into the freezer.

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

Kenmore side by side refrigerator freezer not making ice


sorry if i sounded rude i just couldn't read the entire post it just trailed off...
if it not the water valve then it is either the ice-maker is bad or the waterline going to the ice-maker is frozen or clogged.
sometimes the water valve will slowly leak a small amount of water to the ice-maker and this will freeze in the large tube going to the ice-maker from the back of the refrigerator. this will block any more water from coming thru.
hope this helps

Water leak where hose meets refrigerator connector


I had a similar problem several years ago with water leaking on the floor at behind the fridge. Turned out to be the gasket at a connection the same size as a garden hose at the water valve, so I used a garden hose washer and that did the trick. That was on a Whirlpool vintage about 1990. Can't say what the model was.
