Own the same model, the icemaker and the dispenser work properly but the leak is top center of the refrigerator compartment.

SOURCE: defroster leaks
you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

There are instructions available to repair this problem at www.AnyoneCanFixIt.com. They also sell the part needed to make the repair. Common problem on these refrigerators that were made in about 2005 or later and have the ice bin bucket on the door.

I despise the copper water lines on refrigerators for exactly the reason you have mentioned. This is why my customers will not pull out the refrigerator to clean behind it and to clean the compressor area which in turn causes non cooling issues.
I have many times installed just the plastic water line seen on many part distributor websites.repairclinic.com
You now will be able to move your refrigerator in and out without the worry of crimping the line. If you can find a long enough Stainless braided line....even better.
Just ignore the Whirlpool instruction guide on the matter.
It should not be necessary to use teflon tape on compression fittings. The compression fitting is made to seal without the tape.
Using a reverse osmosis should not harm the copper line. If you have hard water this would have a tendency to harm the copper more than the osmosis filtering.
You can use a brass fitting but with the plastic line you would not need one.
Here is the link that will show you the line you can use. The copper line is not for the water but for the compressor.
