The drain line that comes through the casing may be plugged or the trap at the bottom of the hose where it drains into the drain pan under the refrigerator may be plugged. If water is freezing it is because it is being held back by a restriction.

could be ice is forming at the vents already.
even though it is a frost less refrigerator, in some instances, you may want to defrost it manually or leave the door open for 1 day just to be sure that every ice in the fridge has melted. then plug it back in and observe it.

I believe the problem is with the drain line when the frig goes into defrost mode
see if you can trace the drain line that oes into the evaporator pan at the bottom of the frig
facing the frig remove the bottom panel that goes across the front and pull out the evaporator tray to see if it is dry
take a flashlight and see if you can see a plastic tube that the water should be dripping into the pan
try to trace the tube up into the frig ther is some type of catch basin inside the frig on the back panel usually around middle area
If you are not able to find it you can call whrlpol customer service 1-800-253-1301
or call an appliance service enter and as them f they can walk you through the problem

Not an original solution - but a good one. Remove panels at the back of the freezer compartment to expose the heater unit or heater wire that defrosts the freezer coils and wrap a solid copper wire gently around the heater/ heater wire and place the loose end in the drain. This will conduct heat to the freezer drain and help keep it open. I did see a manufactured part in one of the appliance parts websites but it did not match my unit.

Just had this problem a few weeks ago. tube from freezer was frozen solid 1-2 feet down from the freezer. Empty EVERYTHING out of the the Fridge and the freezer into coolers or other suitable 2-4hr container(s). Unplug the unit and use a hair blow dryer on the coolest warm setting. If it's too hot it may melt plastic or styrofoam parts. As long as long as you have everything out and it's going to be at room temperature for a while, why not clean it totally out with fantastic or your favorite cleaner. Once your sure the clog is gone from the tube, put it all back together, plug it in and stop being a slob and keep it clean!!!! hehehehehehe
