That water is coming from you defrost cycle. Your defrost drain is plugged up with either ice, or possibly food, trash etc. Remove the back wall in the freezer....it is only a few screws. If you have an icemaker pull that out too, should be 3 screws usually. Pull that back wall and in the bottom beneath the coil you will probably see ice, or possibly a pool of water. Defrost that ice or chip it out with a screwdriver. Be carefull because the little drain pan in there is lightweight. You might want to use a hair dryer for this but it takes a little while. I usually just put hot water on it, but put a big bowl on the top shelf of the refrig to catch the water. After you melt it find the drain hole and flush it out. I usually run a peice of wire in it to unclog it. after you unclog it pour a cup of water down it to flush it out.

Freezer not working but fridge works


It uses the same compressor for both. One of two things, the opening that is allowing cold air in the freezer , is closed or the freon is leaking out and it will be soon before the fridge is not working.

Whirlpool, water puddles on top shelf of fridge


If it is not from a plugged or misaligned defrost drain tube, then it is always from air leaking into your refer section. Check you door gasket to see if it is sealing correctly all around your door. Make sure your door is shutting tightly every time. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Fridge constantly dripping wet


water inside, too much condensation from humid air entering fridge from bad seals. replace the seals. could also be that the condensate drain is clogged. if it's leaking from the bottom of the fridge, make sure the tubing is still inside the condensate pan underneath the fridge.

Smelly Ice and water leaking into top shelf


Does water in door dispenser taste bad? If not, Try arm and hammer fridge deoderizer. It will help to absorb fridge odors which may be clinging to water molecules in ice maker tray. Ice maker tray is open to freezer area.Water is very medium to infiltrate with odors. Try this first

Leaking freezer into fridge


Hi, What has happened is that the drain hole in the freezer has frozen up and the defrost water is dripping into the fresh food area.
Remove the floor panel and the rear fan cover in the freezer and you see the ice that is blocking the drain.
Be carefull when removing the ice. DO NOT use a sharp object. The best way is to use a hair dryer.
Once you locate the drain hole, you will need to melt the ice down in the drain hole too. For this, you can use the hair dryer or poor a few glasses of hot water (sopping up the water between each glass).
What you will need to do after the drain is open is to put an after market drain heat transfer kit on to prevent this from reaccuring.
Please let me know if this is the case and I can get you the right part# or even send you the part.

Refrigerator leaking water


Try cleaning out the hose (on the exterior rear). This is the drain from the condenser to the evaporator pan.
