Question about Freezers
Leaks inside and water ends up flowing out of the bottom..everything gets wet
I have the same problem with my Whirlpool Refrigerator. Sounds as though the unit is not going through it's defrost cycle properly.
I have narrowed it down to 2 things.
1) The Defrost Timer is bad and may need replacement.
2) The Defrost bar (located underneath the cooling coils in the freezer unit) is bad and may need replacement.
I would check to see if your timer is even running. You can tell by first locating it (could prove to be the hardest part) and look at the little winow on the front. You will see that the internal wheel is moving if it is operational.
Next remove the panels in the freezer unit and see if the drian hole is plugged with ice. That is what I found upon checking this.
I believe what was happening was that the coils would drip and freeze up over a breif period of time. Layer after layer would build up, plug the drain hole and any liquid would find the path of least resistance and flow with gravity. In this case, directly into the refrigerator section.
If this scenario is present, the heater bar may be bad. I only know one way to test that theory.

If your refrigerator leaks water, you have a problem with either a water line or a drain line. If your refrigerator has an automatic icemaker or a water dispenser, the water supply line could be broken. Automatic icemakers have a drain line that runs down to the drain pan beneath the fridge. Mold build-up inside the drain line can lead to a rupture that allows water to escape .A broken drain line can also lead to water leaking from your refrigerator.
