Hello, this is Dave. What you describe is almost always caused by a clogged defrost drain. Whirlpool has extended coverage for this problem to two years for parts and labor. How old is your refrigerator?

Let me know the age of your refrigerator so I can provide the part number and if a service tech will be doing the work a code to cover the parts and labor.
