hi , roger here i am a maintenance tech for an apartment complex that just happens to have whirlpool appliances. the way i see it is the most likely problem you have is a clogged drain. if you push the refrigerator out where you can access the back of it you will see a plastic hose that runs from about the middle of the fridge down to the bottom and then dumps into a pan that sits on the top of the compresser. the easiest thing to do is to remove the hose from the pan and blow hard through it or hook an air nozzle from a compresser and blow through it . it should take care of it. also try to avoid turning the fridge up on its max settings. hope this helps.

ok your defrost drain is frozen take the back panel off in the freezer section under the coils you will see a silver pan if its frozen it will be a block of ice you have to remove the ice then make sure the drain and tube are clear all the way to the pan at the bottom you should see the plastic tube on the back of the unit in the center over time algae can grow in the tube blocking it drying the unit will help but soon as it defrosts the tube fill up again and the problem reoccurs you kinda got to snake it out so to speak.the best way to deal with it is to go to lowes or home depot and get a eurka 302 enviro hand held steamer an investment but a great product to have around the house cost about 40 bucks but 1000s of uses

Hi, Are you getting ice build up in the freezer side as well? There is a air shuttle between the fresh food side and the freezer side. thwater might be getting in the freshfood side from there. Look at the bottom rear panel in the freezer for ice build up. Ig=f there is ice, you will need to get to the drain from inside the freezer and check for blockage.
Please let me know if I can help you further.

Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze
