That water should be draining out the hole in the evaporation compartment. The defrost drain is stopped up. Remove the service panel and get the junk out the hole and the water from defrost will drain out instead of in the bottom.

If ice is forming in the hole a neat trick to know is to run a wire from the defrost heater down in the hole a hair to keep ice from forming over the drain hole.

Water at bottome of refrigerator


Under the draws in the back, there should be a drain hole that drains water down to the drain pan under the unit. Check to make sure it's not blocked with food or frozen water.

Very slow drip from water dispenser. How do I fix


Good day,
A slow continues drip, but still dispenses O.K. is caused by the dual water valve on the bottom rear of the machine not closing completely.
Only fix is replacing the water valve assembly.

Hi, I have a 20.9 cf (#ET1CHK/ET1CHM). Water


I HAD THE SAME ISSUE EVERY FEW MONTHS. REMOVE THE BACK COVER IN THE FREEZER, YOU WILL SEE A SILVER TRY WITH MOST LIKELY ICE IN IT. THAW THAT ICE AND THERE IS A DRAIN HOLE IN IT. USING A HAIR DRIER GET THE TUBE TO THAW ALSO. ONCE WATER IS FLOWING TAKE A PIECE OF 12 GAUGE BARE COPPER WIRE AND SLIP IT ABOUT 18" INTO THE HOLE. WRAP THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIRE AROUND THE WIRE COIL YOU SEE WHICH IS THE DEFROSTER. WHEN IT WARMS IT WILL HEAT THE WIRE ALSO AND KEEP THE DRAIN CLEAR

Water dripping from somewhere inside the refrigerator


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

Good Luck
