SOURCE: water pooling on the bottom shelf of the freezerless refrigerator

take back panel off inside freezer.
you will see a drain tray at the bottom with a drain hole in the middle. this hole is blocked with ice
melt off with a hairdryer and follow up with hot water till water flows away freely.
check drain tray heater is ok as well

SOURCE: water pools under the veggie crisper

yoor problem is with the drain, when your refrig goes into self defrost the water melted from the defrost needs some where to go. There is a drain for this purpose....it is normally a tube that leads from the rear of freezer to pan by compressor. when this gets blocked the water has nowhere to go except into the freezer vent and down the bottom of the refridge compartment. you will need to clear the blockage in the drain tube...if you are still haveing a problem i can tell you how.

SOURCE: water leaking from icemaker on outside

If this is your water dispenser leaking
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

SOURCE: water filter on my side

Well first thing shut the water off,drain water out by removing filter ,check the o-ring on filter and if you recently changed the filter you possibly pinched it when reinstalling and now you need a new. If not it could have a flat spot on it and wore out either way you need a new on.Appliance store (get model # or take with to match up) or even at times a hardware store that sells o-rings.

Whirlpool Gold Model # GI5FVAXVQOO French door Refrigerator with ice through door is frosting up in the freezer.


your defrost drain has clogged, normal self defrost cycle should be removing water via a drain tube leading down behind unit and evaporating away. however if you were to look behind refrig in compressor compartment youll see a "drain tube" that has what appears to be a black "duckbill" grommet attached..it has more then likely failed be gumming up and preventing water to drain through.if you remove this and install part number "w10619951", should solve your problem... youll need to clear frozen drain from inside unit as well, directions i believe are in the part packet

I have a whirlpool imperial refrigerator; freezer on top; with icemaker....water is leaking from the freezer section down onto top shelf in refrigerator, near back, any help??


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit.... Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator unit, so you need to clear that contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the top shelf in the refrigerator compartment. This is all you need to do....


Best of Luck,


Please do Rate the solution, if you feel that this helps you,


Concerned.

Hi, Dounfd like the defrost drain in the freezer is plugged. Remove the rear panel inside the freezer and locate the drain hole under the evaporator coil.
Once all the ice has been removed, flush the drain with hot water. Some models require an after market drain heater kit. If you will get me a model #, Ican look this up for you.

Whirlpool Custom Series refrigerator leaks -Model ET18JKXSN05


It sounds like the line you found is for draining the water from the defrost cycle. It should drain the water from melting the ice into the pan at the bottom so it will evaporate. Sounds like its being clogged is the cause of the water in your fridge.
