The drain hole is behind the back wall underneath the evaporator coil. Im guessing you have ice on the freezer floor. This is because the drain tubing from the freezer to the drain pan underneath is clogged. There will likely be ice that will need to be defrosted in the drain tubing in order to get to the clog. Once the ice is removed, I use compressed air when I perform this refrigerator repair service.

How do I stop freezer from leaking water


A drain plug is a small hole inside your fridge to allow for moisture to escape. The reason its leaking water is because its not cooling the water to ice or its defrosting the ice to water. make sure the door closes shut and turn it up a bit as it has been very hot recently

You can buy a kit from whirlpool. In the kit is a metal tab that mounts onto the defrost heater. It is long enough to go into the hole. When the heater comes on for defrost the heat transfers down to the hole and keeps it from getting plugged up with ice. Part number 819043

There is water leaking into the freezer and freezing at the bottom. what do I need to do?


This sounds like your Defrost drain is cloged. Do not chizel the ice. use hot water or a hair dryer to remove the ice. Now your either going to be lucky or a little unlucky. look at the back bottom area of the freezer and look for a hole the size of a dime. This is the defrost drain if you see it. If you don't then you will need to pull the power plug from the machine and remove the back wall of the freezer to find the drain. Then you can defrost the ice and then pour hot water down it the defrost that ice and get the drain clear. Its not good practice to shove things down the tube to clear the drain. you could break the tube. if you half to use somthing like a zip tie that is flexable.

Once the drain is flowing water your clear and can put the back wall back together. and plug the machine back in.

Keep in mind that you will need to remove the food and have a place for it while you are working on the machine.

one more thing. try not to pour more that 2 to 3 cups of hot water down the drain. The pan may not hold much more and will spill on the floor behind the machine.

Water on bottom of freezer


most commercial freezers have a drain to the back of the compressor area where the condensate goes into a pan and is boiled off into the air by a loop of hot gas tubing in the pan or an electric heater in the pan. when it defrosts the ice on the coil melts and the water flows out . if the tubing gets plugged the water flows out of the pan and down into the bottom of the box where it refreezes on start of the next refrigeration cycle. clean and clear drain with a shop vac or air hose where water can flow out of pan under the evaporator coil when it defrosts. if you have a domestic residential freezer , most of these have no defrost and neeed to be shut down and manually defrosted every few years. if you leave the door ajar or it doesn't seal well ice builds up and can accumulate in the bottom as frost etc. it would be mosyt unusual for a residential box to have a defrost clock, drain and all, but possible and same rules apply. find the drain and clear with shop vac .

Defrost drain system is plugged and not draining out the back and into the drain collector. There is normally an air trap in this drain line under the back and behind a fiber removable panel. Check this trap and make sure it is clear of any blockage. You will then have to defrost the freezer and clear out the ice. Don't forget to replace the back fiber panel.
