Default Whirlpool side by side front left leak water shut off
Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years

I have a 3 year old whirlpool side by side. It has been leaking a moderate sized puddle from the front left. I have shut off the water supply completely and put hot water through the defrost drain tube to clear it. Water filter was removed/bypassed, we do not use the front water dispenser or ice, and ice maker is also in the off position. No ice or water is found on the freezer floor. About one month with no problems, then I came home to a leak again today. I again poured hot water through the defrost drain tube. Some water did spill in this area as it is difficult to get it into the tube without spilling unless the freezer is taken more apart. I noticed this did cause a puddle on the floor under the freezer as well. Unsure if the drain pan is perfect or cracked, but I don't understand why it would hold water without leaks for a month and then leak. It currently has water in it from clearing the drain tube and appears to be holding it without a leak. Have not removed it to inspect it. Drain tube may have a little gunk in it but I did clean this out with a pipe cleaner a month ago. No dust or dirt in area...house is only 3 years old and keep clean. Any suggestions? Very frustrated by this....
