The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

The water leaks down the inside-back and quite a large amount collects in the lower bins unless I place bowels at the rear to collect it. It has been happening since it was fairly new but the company has not helped when I explained the problem to them.

Our Whirlpool top freezer unit is leaking water into the refrigerator. The model number is ET21NKXGW01 and at the top of the inside of the fridge, water is draining out into the fridge.

We've just started noticing something that sounds like water is running or trickling inside the refrigerator walls. Nothing appears to be leaking both inside the refrigerator or outside onto the floor and the refrigerator is cooling just fine but this sound of water running between the walls of the refrigerator has us concerned. It is a side by side GE refrigerator. Thanks!
It's probably just the freon equalizing in the system after the compressor cycles off. There are probably some freon lines in the wall between the freezer and fridge. ...

I have a whirlpool refrigerator with a top freezer model #ET1LFKXKQ00 that has water leaking into the refrigerator. It is pooling on the top shelf in the refrigerator and on the bottom of the refrigerator. It does not have an ice maker and is not connected to water. Both the freezer and the refrigerator appear to still be working. Where is the water coming from? The fridge is nearly 10 years old. It was purchased in Oct 2001.
Amana model txi21a3l has a water leak at where the feed line is inserted into the feed tube at the top rear of the refrigerator. It comes out at each fill cycle in a stream of drips. There is no leak in the parts and the clamp is on tight. I think it is too much back pressure that forces the water out even with the tight clamp. What could be causing this - the feed tube inside the refrigerator freezing and blocking the filler tube, or some other blockage?? It looks like the fill tube is open end
