If its leaking all the time you could have a problem with the water supply line (if it has an icemaker)Or the solenoid valve (water valve) that opens to refill the icemaker after it drops (harvests) the ice.Or the plastic water lines that run from the valve up to the icemaker.You should pull the frig out from the wall and check the back for leaks.You could also Just shut off the water supply to the unit and see if it stops.These leeks cause a lot of damage when they go unnoticed for a long time.I would check it out asap.

I t sounds like this is an older refrigerator and it is working ok otherwise. Most older refrigerators have removable defrost drain pans. Make sure the defrost pan is in place. Remove the front bottom kick panel and check to see if there is any water in it.
There should be just a little defrost water in the pan. Look for the tube that drains into the pan and make sure it is in line with the pan.

If the pan is dry open up the refrigerator door and check underneath the crisper drawers. If you have a defrost drain coming from the freezer that is stopped up you may notice standing water underneath the crisper pans that will run out underneath the door. if this is the case you will need to unstop the defrost drain.

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!

Sound like you have a refrigerant leak I suggest to take it to a pro because you need lots of tools and knowledge to properly fix it And don?t let people tell you than is just to add refrigerant because that is a common myth or miss conception, refrigerant don?t ware out or burn out if the system need refrigerant is because there is a leak some where.

Whirlpool gold refrigerator icemaker leaking water


hi there,

sounds like the ice or water actuator or paddle is broken. purchase a new paddle and replace it.

the reason you have leak is because you have warm air entering through the broken part into the freezer.

can you provide me with the model # and i will send you a part breakdown.

hi thanks for the question the drain system is clogged the drain hose from the freezer to the drain tray undre neath the fridge by the compressor is clogged you may have to shut down the unit to let the ice melt that has caused this problem get a small plastic hose from a hardware store and shove it up the drain dose and blow air up the hose till its clear that's why you have to shut the fridge off for 24 hrs to allow the ice to melt then blow the air thanks the appliance doc
