Sounds like the drain (under the evaporator coils inside the freezer) is clogged and frozen up.

Remove the rear panel in the freezer and the freezer floor. Using a hair dryer, defrost the ice on the bottom and in the drain hole. Using a hot water make sure the drain is open. Check the bottom end of the drain hose which goes into the pan under the refrigerator (accessible from the back).

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL ET1FTTXKT01 | AppliancePartsPros.com

Thanks Gene. I forgot to mention that the water was leaking INSIDE the fridge out of that part that runs down from the freezer. Does your advice on how to fix it still apply???
