Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
You have an obstruction between the lower tray that collects and sends it down to the pan under the refrigerator where the condenser fan and heat from compressor is used to return the moisture back into the air. Sometimes Ice will block the drain or there may be a leak in the collection tray itself. I will send you more help guides if you like. But for the moment is it possible for you to unplug the refrigerator and remove the rear panel in back of freezer to examine just what you see. We may need to do something different depending on what you see. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Remove back of unit and check defrost heater has not become detached, otherwse the is only two possibilities, one a defrost fault and although you say the defrost tube is clear the only reason it does not flow is due to a restriction, what can happen is that the water backs up the drain pipe and then freezes before the water in the external tray can evaporate.

Yes, you are correct, that is a drain. Use a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water to flush out the drain tube until water will flow out into the drain pan under the refrig. (where the air blown over it will cause it to evaporate)

There is a drain hole in the back of the freezer on the bottom. Get back there with some hot water. Most of the time it is just lime build up. Unless you know what feel back there. Another way is to move the freezer out and from the back side you can see the drain line. It just pulls right off
