SOURCE: Freezer compartment leaking water and icing up inside

I just fixed this problem with my Admiral. I noticed the problem when I found ice in the bottom of the freezer and water leaking out onto the floor. Here is what I did: remove all of the food from the freezer into large coolers. Pull-out the shelves, the icemaker bin, and thaw the basket with a hairdryer until you can pull it out. There are about 12 phillips head screws that hold a plastic baffle covering the freezer coils. Remove all of the screws and loosen but do not remove the icedispenser motor and freezer light (you can pry it up to get to the top screw of the baffle). Pull the top part of the baffle away from the back of the freezer and then slide the baffle up to reveal the defrost drip tray and drain. Use a hair dryer and screw driver to remove the iceblock from the drip try and to thaw any other ice in the bottom of the freezer. Also thaw the top of the drain. Now pull the freezer out from the wall and under the drain area in the back you will find the drain tube attached with a "Oh-Jesus" clamp - at least that is what we call them here in Indiana. Pinch the clamp with pliers and pull the drain tube down. Use a stretched out wire hanger to snake out the tube (I had lots of calcium deposit and a dust ball clogging the tube) and then replace. Test the system with a cup of water to make sure the drain works (should see water end up in the pan under the right front bottom drip tray). Replace baffle, icemaker motor/light, bin, shelves, food, done.

Rubber seal at bottom of dishwasher dorr keeps sliding out of place leaking water all over the floor (LDS4821WW)

There is not a positive seal at the bottom of the door, but rather an overlap.
If water is coming out, look at machine level, water quantity, and incorrect soap as possible causes.

The bottom of the door is a passive water barrier that will not hold back soapy water, or excessive water, and is NOT designed to do so.

My refrigerators ha water under teh freezer, has a continously leack

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help. Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

07 wrangler is leaking water from the top of the doors

Stay on the Dealership and make them fix it. Persistance is key.
I had teh dealership service manager run a garden hose across my roof for 15 minutes before I would accept it back.
Don't let them use teh pressure washer hose, it bounces teh water off the top. You want a full soak situation like a real thunderstorm.
If they can't fix it, go to the next town and have them work on it. Performance does vary.

Is there ice build up under the bottom basket in the freezer??

sounds like the defrost drain is frozen up. especially since your cleaning up once or twice a day. simply defrost the drain and flush the drain line with warm water. you will likely have to remove the freezer cover inside the freezer compartment to do this.

if there is no ice build up under the baskets then its likely there is a leak in the water line for your water dispenser line that runs in the door. if thats teh case you will most likely need a service company to fix it for you..
