Here is a link to help you resolve the problem I also have an even better link but on-line is moving slow at moment. Anyway you will need to take the part out from back and clean the blockage., Let me know if this helps, Sea breeze

Why is everything in the crisper drawers freezing?


Crisper draws are at bottom of fridge, cold air collects at the bottom and warmer air rises. Turn thermostat dial down, mine is set on 2 out of 6 and every thing stays fresh and doesn't freeze. In very hot weather I do sometimes turn it up to 3.

Water through door stopped working. Now water is puddling under crisper drawers, sometimes freezing. Also seems to be leaking underneath left front side.


It sounds as though the hole allowing water generated by the auto defrost to drain away is blocked.

I suggest locating the hole and using something like flexible curtain wire to rod it through, preferably from underneath.
The water collects in a tray mounted on the motor where the heat generated by the motor will evaporate it.

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.

I have had the same problem. In my case, its the little water tank behind the left crisper. The tank has cracked (twice now) which means replacement (again). The water leakage gets so bad that it leaks into the freezer causing ice up problems in the rear.

For some time, water was accumulating on the floor


before you call check the bottom of your freezer, if it is full of ice, yuou more than likely have a clogged defrost drain
remove the back panel of the freezer and ensure the drain is free and clear,
check the fill tube of the ice machine to be properly installed

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.

tata75,
Happy to assist you,

you said,
For the past three days, water has been leaking/freezing at an alarming rate. The freezer had about 2 inches of ice built up and the bottom of the refrigerator is holding water, too. Both crisper s were FULL of water. I don't know if the ice maker connection is broken or what. Looks like I have to cut off the cold water completely to the sink to get it to stop.

Sounds like the ice maker or its line is leaking the water to me. And obviously it will freeze in the freezer.

You need hands on service.

open the freezer compartment loo for ice build up on floor of frezer especally towards rear behind back panel. sounds like you have a clogged/frozen defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials)
