Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Remove the food from the freezer and ice maker ( if equipped ) . Remove the screws from the back panel , and remove the panel . Use a hair dryer , starting in the middle , below the coils , and defrost until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help thaw the drain hole . Once water flows down , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any debris accumulated in the drain line . Get a piece of ALUMINUM solid wire ( 14 - 16 guage ) about 9" long , completely stripped of insulation , and insert it into the hole as far as possible ( without force ) . Wrap the other end , about 1-2 turns around the black rod ( defrost heater ) just above the hole . When the refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer to the wire , keeping the drain hole from freezing up again .

There is the drain in the freezer under the evaporator. You have to remove the rear panel in the freezer and the freezer floor to access it. Defrost it using a hair dryer and put hot water through the drain to make sure it's clean. Make sure the bottom end of the drain hose (behind the rear cover) is clean as well. Vacuum everything in the compressor compartment and keep it clean.
