Most of the time this phenom is caused by a drain being clogged under the evaporation coils. Every now and then the control powers up a strong heater to knock the frost off them evap coils so they won't ice up. The runoff from the operation is supposed to go down a drin hole under them coils. So what goes wrong?
The drain gets a clog and the water has nowhere to go but the path of least resistance and gravity usually makes it finds its way to the bottom of the ice box. Remedy? Open up the service panel. remove the clog and party on!

My ice maker and water dispenser is not working red light flashing 2 times then pause

Have you changer the water filter? If so the line may be stopped up. Turn the water supply off and disconnect the supply line. Sometimes there is a strainner on the supply line thed can become clogtged. Also disconnect the supply line thet runs from the supply valve to the ice maker and make sure that it is not clogged.(This line shopuld be commected to a small valve at the botom of the unit. Hope this helps.

You have a defrost drain that in blocked. Try looking in the back and very bottom of the freezer and locate the drain. Also you may have to pull the refrig out from the wall to get to the drain that way.Hope this helps.

There is ice buildup in the drain and maybe under the seperator. Remove the back panel in the freezer and the botom floor of the freezer and remove the ice. Be careful of the styrofoam ducts. Eric

Water from ice makers leaks and builds up in botom of freezer

ice maker leaks are usually a sign of icemaker mold corrosion eating the lining off the icemaker causing it to leak. the only repair is to replace the complete icemaker. you will need a complete model number from the unit and the part can be ordered online thru whirlpool or some of the other appliance parts sites. you may even have a local parts warehouse where you live. hopw that helps peyton

Ice forming where ice comes out to refrigerator

I am not sure if this is the same issue or not.  the flap that closes after you have dispensed ice does not close or seal all the way.  The gasket is worn down. the result is warm air get up into icemaker and warms ice and refreezes in one block so now the dispenser gets blocked.  We had to replace the flap in the door.  bought the part at an appliance part  store (not sears) they were helpfull and looked up the part needed.  Also a sheet of ice forms on the  bottom of the freezer.  When water is dispensed a small bit drips inside freezer in back and runs down to botom of freezer slowly forming a sheet of ice.  Use a hair dryer to defrost and then you must unclog the drain in the back at the bottom of ffreezer to allow it to drian.  Once we finally unclogged the drain we have not had any problems for about 2 years.

Botom freezer working fine

Could be, also, maybe the drain hose may be kinked or plugged. Normally the hose leads to a drain pan under the ref, where a fan blows across it to evaporate the water.
