Whirlpool top freezer refrigerator has water in bottom refrigerator
when the machine goes into defrost the heater in the freezer comes on and melts all frost off of the evaporator coil,the water goes down a drain line down to where the compressor and condensor coil is and there the water evaporates,your drain is blocked so the water can't drain down and leaks into the fridge section.when you write looking for answers you have to send the model number off of the machine,if the freezer is on top open the fridge door and look on the left side wall up near the ceiling and there should be a tag with model number,unplug the fridge or shut down the cold control,remove everything from the freezer and remove the back inside wall of the freezer,with a hair dryer melt out all the ice under the evap coil,i use a steamer to clean out the drain,if you don't have one you can try a turkey baster or anything that will push air or water down the drain hole,when you think the drain is clear pour hot water into the hole,if it drains down then it's clear,if not keep hitting it,you can also heat up the back center wall and ceiling in the fridge section to help melt out the ice.there's also a heater probe you can buy that you stick into the drain and it raps around the heater,when the heater comes on the probe heats up and keeps the drain from freezing up,you can also use a ground wire from an electrical piece of house wire or from a cable wire,cut a piece around 6 inches,stick it into the hole and rap the end around the heater,if it's a glass heater connect the wire to the metal in front of the heater,if 6 inches is to long trim it down a little so it fits.good luck,if you need anymore help let me know.
