Water in left bottom crisper drawer

Whirlpool Fridge mod# et8wtkxkq0 We have had great service out of this fridge for years, but here lately, the left side crisper drawer keeps filling up with water. It also puts water under the crisper drawers and then eventually leaks on to the floor. I have done everything I know and followed all troubleshooting advice I could find. Can you please help. I am a disabled vet and just can't afford to get a repairman or buy another fridge... Thanks

SOURCE: fridge bottom has water under vegetable drawers

Make sure the door is closing properly, that nothing is trapped in the door seal, and that the seal isn't torn or distorted. The seals are there to stop moist external air getting in then dropping its load of moisture as it cools. A.

SOURCE: water in bottom of fridge and in crisper drawers

the defrost drain in the freezer is clogged with ice.
empty the food from the freezer, and put through a defrost. you might have to help the fridge defrost with a hair dryer. you may also have to remove the rear panel (inside the freezer) or pending on the model to bottom panel of the freezer.. (usually held in by 1/4" hex screws.)
melt all the ice, and be sure that the drain is clear, and it should work.

SOURCE: Refrigerator has water under the crisper drawers

There is most likely a plugged drain in the freezer section. The easist solution can be to empty the refrigerator and unplug it over night. If this is not possible then the back or bottom should be removed to allow access to the drain and a hair dryer can be used to make defrosting go faster. still takes a while, if there is access in the back of the unit that can be the cause of the plug.

O have a GE Fridge Model GFSS6KKxass i am having a issue with water accumilatimg under the both crisper drawers not sure what is causing this?


My GE Fridge did the same and the repair man I called said there is a little drain hose that goes from the top to the bottom of the Fridge at the rear see if that hose is plugged. I unfastened it at the top and blew air through it and the water is no longer a problem.

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.

Water in crisper drawer of Whirlpool model number ET18TK


the water in the bottom of the fridge will be from condensate running down the back wall and not collecting in the drain ridge to flow outside to the dish on top of the compressor. It comes from overloading the fridge by opening the door too often and excess food trying to cool down. check and unplug any blockages in the drain and pull any containers away from the back wall as water will flow off the wall onto them and miss the drain all together. The drain ridge will be under 1/2 way down the back

Water accumalating in the bottom of the fridge.


A common problem. All modern refrigerators have an automatic deicer. The heater kicks in, then MELTS the ice in build up in the freezer for a short period before freezing again. This water drains either in the fridge or out the back to the catch tray. Simply pull out the bottom drawers and clean the clogged drain hold where the water can drain and evaporate in the catch tray as it is designed to.

Water on the bottom shelf of the Refridgerator


Has the refrigerator got a wet inner back?
Ff this is wet, adjust it until this solid ice 'blobs', bt not encrusted, like in a freezer
The refrigerator may not be cool enough and the natural warm moisture allowed into the cool compartment when the door is open is condensing into fluid before it is cooling sufficiently to suspend the moisture as a vapour. If the cool compartment is cool enough, any warm air admitted ill be chilled before it is allowed to condense, keeping the refridgerator dry.
However, the only drawback is that you will have to monitor it to prevent the build up of excesive ice.
Also, whether the refridgerator is either empty of full willaffe the day to day operation.
Hope this helps.

Frozen Veggies in Crisper Drawers and Water under Drawers


water under the crisper doors is pretty common, all you have to do is raise the front legs of the refrigerator, Refrigerators have a heater in them that keep everything from freezing, if it wasnt for the heater then it would just be a freezer, now alot of these samsungs have 2 evaps, so if you get a warm fridge, its prob. because a sensor is out or the heater is out and there is ice buildup inside the unit preventing either the fan from turning, or just blocking air flow, but for the water, just raise the front legs and there is a drain in the back that it will go into from now on
