Sounds like your defrost drain is clogged up. it can be cleaned by taking off the metal or plastic panel and cleaning out the defrost drain hole. a steamer works best.

SOURCE: water freezes in bottom of freezer and then leaks out onto floor

I am pretty sure you are having a defrost drain blockage problem. Most defrost every eight hours and over a period of time the drain line that comes down from freezer into a cup like object top middle and back of the fresh food section. If blocked by gunk or ice you will see trails of liquid leaking down the rear wall of fresh food compartment until it reaches the crisper drawers.This is not always the same with every model as you may see frozen ice flowing down ther rear wall of freezers on side by sides. Here is an example Click here=> Whirlpool Leak Photo taken by TechnicianBrian He has been around a good bit and deserves credit for his contributions. Here is another way to make this look more si mple in clip below. TechnicianBrian.com And in this photo are several parts listed in photo group #1 were it is most likely running down the wall=> MagicChef CTB1921AR fresh food section. If you still have questions please ask and rate me if I was able to explain this well enough. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. The key is to find if ice or just gunk has blocked you defrost drain. Unplug and then remove the rear panel in back of freezer. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Have whirlpool gold refrigerator with freezer on

Hi,

One big question before you go hunting. Before you turn off the water, was the water running all the time? Meaning if the water had a continuos flow the leak is before the fridge. If the leak is erratic then its on the valve side to fridge.
Follow the water source in the fridge, supply line to water valve (bottom right behind the fridge), from there it should run straight up the back into the freezer. So, if the water is coming from the valve, replace it, if from the water line - replace it. If the water line came off or out of the freezer reconnect and check for a frozen fill tube.
I hope this information helps.

My Whirlpool Gold French Door Refrigerator GX2FHDXVD is leaking underneath. The pan is cracked. How do I remove the pan?


i don't think there is a pan in your machine,it's built into the bottom frame near the compressor where the water evaporates from the heat.most likely you have a blocked drain in the freezer or one of the water lines has a crack or the water valve is cracked and leaking.open the freezer door,look at the floor of the freezer to see if there's any ice there on the freezer floor,if so you have a blocked drain,where is the water leaking from,in the front of the machine or the rear,also do you have a water line hooked up to the machine?

Whirlpool refrigerator (top freezer) is leaking into bottom of fridge. What can it be?


Hi, read about your problem. What's happening is your drain in the freezer compartment in the back behind wall is plugged. Defrost water then builds up under freezer floor and freezes. To fix, remove back wall. Also the floor needs to be opened up. Use a blow dryer to clear ice out of drain, in the trough, and under the floor. Hope this helps

Water Leaking all over from Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator


I think that the seals are ruined when the seals are ruined the water will leak outside and inside beacause all of the heat from outside will gather together and will melt the ice and will make the moisture act up and boost the process of it turning to gas matter into liquid matter.
