Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates.
If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.

I have a whirlpool designer 20 refrigerator, it is collecting water at the bottom. What is going on? How can I fix it?


In the freezer, under the cooling coil, is a drain pan that collects water after the coil defrosts. The drain opening from this pan is probably plugged with debris. If you can find the drain line under neath the refrigerator and blow through it, this will usually clear it.

Where does evaporation water collect?


Defrost water goes into the drain-pan below the refrigerator and utilizes the air that goes across the condenser coils to EVAPORATE into the air. There is no collection of water :-)

Water collecting on floor under the refrigerator


The evaporator pan in the bottom of you refrigerator may be out of place, damaged or missing. there also may be a problem with the drain tube being bent and not dripping into the pan. It is also possible that the drain tube could be clogged and water could be collecting in the bottom of the refrigerator and spilling out too.

Water is collecting at the bottom. Where is it


Refrigerators have a defrost water drain that carries water produced during the defrost cycle to the bottom of the refrigerator where it flows into a catch pan. The water is then evaporated by heat from the compressor and refrigerant coils.

Something is likely blocked in your drain system. There is usually a catch basin in the rear of the refrigerator behind the inside lining. From that catch basin, water flows into tubes which usually run down the back of the refrigerator. The drain in the catch basin may be stopped up, or the tube itself could be blocked.

Water leaks under veg bins.. Cannot tell where it is coming from. Accumulates slowly


This refrigerator look like mine (Picture).
Mine did the same thing. If it is the same then this is what I did.
Look under the there is a collection tray.
This tray collect the water.
At the bottom of the refrigerator (Inside where the water collect) is a cap.
The cap has cap would have holes or a slot that allow the little water to fall to the collection tray.
Mine has slots and was block up.
clean it out and that should do it.
The water should be able to fall to the tray at the bottom.
I do hope this help you.
