I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool model 6ED25DQFW side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/water dispenser. Water was slowly pooling under the refrigerator under the freezer section. The defrost drain pipe was not blocked, the condenser fan was running, the drip pan was not leaking.
The source of the leak was found to be the icemaker solenoid block plastic body which had a pinhole leak.
To fix requires either plastic welding, or replacement of the solenoid block plastic body.
To access the solenoid block firstly requires removal of the cardboard cover, located at the lower rear of the refrigerator.

There is a leak or damage of the pipe leading from the evaporator downwards.The defrosted water is leaking out of the tubing to the bottom,replace this tubing or check the leak on the collecting tray under the evaporator.

Doewoo no frost fridge freezer is working fine except that we keep getting puddles of water under the freezer door. any ideas. had about 4 years now


probably a blocked drain outlet or pipe. At the bottom rear of the unit, mine had a drain pipe blocked with a plug of mould (5/6 years old machine), apparently quite common. I detached the pipe and cleaned it out and replaced it.
From inside the freezer, I removed the lower back panel and thawed the ice build up on the drainage tray below the defrost heating element, leading to the pipe outside. The puddles of water that was appearing every defrost cycle have now stopped - permanently I hope. Hope this helps you

Model RF267ABBP water standing under drawer


Most likely cause is the evaperator tray has frozen over. This causes the tray to overflow with the defrosted ice every time it goes into defrost (every 8-12 hours). You can start by pulling off the back wall inside of the freezer,and inspecting the evap tray. You will need a phillips screw driver and a flat head to do so.

Under your fridge, there is a drain hose which goes into a removable tray on the bottom of your refrigerator.This is where the water from the automatic defroster goes. The heat from the motor dries the water up, but occasionally the hose becomes plugged, or does not set into the tray. You may have to pull the fridge away from the wall, go behind the fridge, get down on the floor, find the tray, in the front or back, check that the hose is in place and patent. If the tray is full of water, there may be a heating or evaporating element that is not working to dry up the water, in which case you could always manually empty the tray till you you find a solution. Good luck.

Have a GE Frige # TBX18SAXPLWW. Large amounts of water collect on inside, bottom of frige. Back wall wet from frige/freezer temp control locate at upper most rear wall of unit. What could problem be?


When in defrost mode, frost is melted and the water is directed to a tray at the rear bottom of the freezer. A tube is connected to the bottom of the tray so the water is sent down the back of the refer to evaporate at the bottom.

The tube gets clogged with gunk, water backs up and freezes. Then, at the next defrost cycle the water has no place to go except into the refer interior.

Unload the freezer, remove the bottom plastic plate, let the ice melt, unclog the tube, put everything back together and you're good to go!

Water accumlates inside refrigerator


The defrost drain is plugged up. You must access the evaporation department and open that drain. I have free repair manuals HERE

Water/condensation in both dairy tray and bottom of fridge


My guess is you have a blocked defrost drain. The water instead of going down its drain goes down the backside of the frig and pools up under the crispers. Blow out the defrost drain. The only other thing to look for is bad door gaskets.

Ice bucket/bin frozen in place


mine was overfilling because the ice was getting stuck on the way out. So some stayed in the tray and when the water would refil, it would overfil and go over the stuk cubes. leaving it to overflow to the bottom and freeze like yours.
