Product is about 2 Years Old... for the last 8 months or so, the hole at the back of the fridge for excess water to go down keeps overflowing and spills into the bottom of the Fridge. Having to stick paper towel every two days to "soak" water up.
Have defrosted freezer compartments in lower half, this seemed to help for a few days but now its back to its usual overflowing tricks, somebody please help!!!!

My advice would be to go for a new one as the product you are holding is more than 8 years old. Although, obviously new is going to be a little on the expensive side as compared to getting this one fixed but technology has moved a long way in the last 8 years. Thus, your current Freezer is going to consume more electricity and even after being repaired, the performance shall not be optimal. While, the new Refrigerator not only is going to be Lessen your electricity bill but shall be a better choice both in terms of Style, Structure, Optimization and Performance.

Check out these tips...they can help you figure out whats going wrong with your
refrigerator and why it is not cooling
Either the thermostat is set to high or you need to replace the thermostat.adjust it to 1/2 way position position and if temp is to cold and it doesnt want to switch off, it means the thermostat is faulty.
I had a Kenmore fridge - about 20 years old when I replaced it this year. It used to do the exact same thing especially in warm/hot weather. What it is is the water from the freezer defrosting. There should be something on the back near the top, inside the fridge sticking out - a tiny little tray sticking out and it may also be part of supporting one of the shelves, I can't remember. Anyways, water from the defrost pools in there and is supposed to evaporate, but it gets clogged with gunk and the water spills out and runs down the back of the fridge down to the bottom. Get a pipe cleaner or something and poke it into this hole and clean out the pipe to the hole isn't blocked. This is all inside the fridge, not outside, on the back panel outside. That's the best I can do to describe the solution - it's an easy fix you can do yourself. Good luck!
Hi. thanks for the question . the problem you have is with the drain tube, from under the freezer wall ,in the fridge. that tube is clogged up . pull fridge away from wall. locate the drain hose at the drain tray. clean. also clean all coils behind fridge thanks the appliance doc
Sounds like to me you have a defrost issue. If your fridge is only 2 months old don't sweat it and call out a Whirlpool warrenty certified tech. to fix the problem. And sorry to say age does not matter with fridges any more. The good ole days of fridges lasting 20 years is over now it's 12 years if your lucky.
