I'm finding water in the refrigerator on the top shelves. It appears to be coming from the housing that is snapped into the upper surface of the refrigerator box

Means you have a clogged or iced drain. Remove rear panel in the freezer and pour hot boiling water into drain. Inspect to ensure it is not iced. Keep pouring hot boiling water into drain until it opens and starts to drain. Be sure to put towels on top shelves in refrigerator to catch water, then dry completely.

Our refrigerator is cooling and our freezer is freezing, but there is a leak coming from the freezer area that is dripping down into the refrigerator that just keeps getting worse and worse. Appears that...


Hi maabjcraft,

Have you tried clearing the drain tube?

Your refrigerator has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the refrigerator. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your refrigerator. A similar drain exists in the freezer, which when clogged results in ice build up on the floor of the freezer.

The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.

Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of 1/4 inch or smaller flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Kitchen Aid KTRC22EK leak inside refridgerator


It sounds like the drain for the defrost water is pluged. You can remove the back panel inside the freezer(ice maker will have to coe out first) and access the drain in the rear center of the freezer. Check the drain. It can be defrsted with a hair dryer(shut off the referigerator first) good luck, snugglepants

Moisture dripping from temperature control hood model KTRS21MFAL0


possible that condensation drain line is clogged. This line drains the water from the freezer when it goes into defrost to a small pan loscated above the compressor where when it gets to the pan the heat from the compressor running evaporates the mosture.

Water dripping into refrigerator from cooling area


Your defrost drain in the freezer is frozen closed.
Turn the fridge off.
Remove the rear freezer panel.
Remove the visible ice.
Use a hair dryer to thaw the drain hole in the back of the freezer in the center of the drain trough.

Water dripping from somewhere inside the refrigerator


I believe the problem is with the drain line when the frig goes into defrost mode

see if you can trace the drain line that oes into the evaporator pan at the bottom of the frig

facing the frig remove the bottom panel that goes across the front and pull out the evaporator tray to see if it is dry

take a flashlight and see if you can see a plastic tube that the water should be dripping into the pan

try to trace the tube up into the frig ther is some type of catch basin inside the frig on the back panel usually around middle area

If you are not able to find it you can call whrlpol customer service 1-800-253-1301
or call an appliance service enter and as them f they can walk you through the problem

Good Luck

Whirlpool has water drip inside fridge


sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

open the freezer compartment loo for ice build up on floor of frezer especally towards rear behind back panel. sounds like you have a clogged/frozen 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)

if there is water on the top shelves in the fresh food section you may have a drain problem when the freezer defrosts. one other possibility is there is a air leak somewhere could be a bad door seal. when warm air enters it will cause condensation and water will drip on the shelves.I suspect it might be comming from the freezer though. a easy way to check is to remove the back panel in the freezer and check for ice in the drain pan. if there is a blockage use a hair drier to melt the ice and hot water to clear the drain. let me know if this helped you solve your problem Good luck
