It sounds as though your filter which screws into the front at the bottom kick plate is bad . The rubber seals on them tend to go bad causing them to leak into the drip pan and causing it to overflow . This will appear to be a leak when in actuality , all you need to do is replace the filter .

Hello

In the freezer section. Behind the lower rear wall is the coils and just below that is a drain. If you will remove any ice and use a coat hanger or screw driver to push down through that hole you should be able to get it unclogged. Take a small cup of water to verify that you have it unstopped and your done.

#225 in the drawing.
I hope this helps.

The Whirlpool Gold refrigerator is not cooling and the bottom freezer has ice formed on the back of the freezer. I purchased the refrigerator in February 2009.


If you can hear the fan running in the freezer you have a defrost issue. Depending on the Model number it can be a timer, adaptive defrost board, a bi-metal themostat, or heater.

Whirlpool Gold refrigerator water leaking


If it's flooding, it's NOT the drain pan. It's probably the water valve has gotten stuck in the open position. Hope this helps!
