Using the blow dryer is a common option but sometimes could be dangerous to certain machines. There is always a button to blow hot air for unclogging the ice in the freezer. But the best option is to turn the entire fridge off for at least 4-5 hrs. This keeps the internal machine safe from being damaged. Also the items in the fridge will not be damaged as cooling effect inside the fridge will be maintained for at least 6 hrs after the power is cut-off.Good luck with the machine and hope the answer is helpful.

Whirpool machines have a very short defrost cycle, as compaired to many brands. This definitely contributes to the problem.
1. Make sure the drain fittings and drain hose to the drain pan are completely open. Not just open, but blown free of any debrise.
2. My experience with many whirlpool products, is ice built up under and back of the drain pan in the freezer compartment. It cannot be seen.
To solve this problem long term, means unplugging the machine, defrosting, and drying it out completely.
24 hours and idealy with a floor fan blowing into the compartment.
3. As well, you wil notice a small round disk clipped to the top of the evaporator. This is the defrost thermostat, and controls the temperature during defrost.
I change and bump this tstat up 5 degrees.
For example, if it's a 50 degree tstat, I replace it with a 55 degree. Or if it's 55 degrees I use a 60 degree model.
You will not be able to buy this as a Whirlpool item, but you can with a little effort, use a GE kit.
The part number for GE replacement kits are for example "WR50X55", the last 2 numbers are the temperature of that tstat, and run in 5 degree increments from 45 degrees to 60 degrees.
A sharp appliance parts house counterman should be able to help you.
P.S. The tstat in Whirlpools are often given in Celsius.
You'll have to convert that to farenheit
Patience in drying the machine is your friend here.
