I have a whirlpool refrigerator that gets water leaking down below to the crisper drawers, I’m wondering what this is due to and how could I fix it from happening? I’ll put a photo to the model number of the refrigerator I have.
In general, when there's water leaking in or around a refrigerator+freezer combination unit, it is from one of two sources:
- the ice maker/water dispenser
- automatic defrost
Based on my hasty search of your model number, it appears you have a unit with no ice maker or water dispenser, and a freezer compartment on top. I think a plugged drain for the automatic defrost is the most likely cause of the water you're seeing.
The evaporator (cooling) coil in this type of unit is usually hidden behind a panel at the rear of the freezer compartment. Unload the freezer and look for fasteners; figure out how to remove that panel. Behind the panel you should find a scene that looks something like the still image below (captured from YouTube).
From time to time a heater element in that area is switched on to melt the ice that accumulates on the evaporator. The resulting water is supposed to drip down onto that shiny metal foil pan and exit the freezer compartment through a drainage tube at the bottom. From there it travels outside the cold compartments to a pan in the bottom of the unit near the compressor and/or condenser coil. Heat and air movement from these components evaporates the water into the room air.
It's likely that the drainage tube in yours has become blocked. Some have a "duckbill" check valve that looks like the photo below (source). This is a likely place for debris to accumulate; when it does, eventually the water backs up and freezes and leaves the drain fully blocked. Defrost water follows gravity and finds another way out -- into the refrigerator compartment below!
So.. your task is to disassemble, melt out the ice, find the drainage tube, check for and clear obstructions. Doing it for first time I'd plan on it taking 2-4 hours to get all sorted out.
