Whirlpool wrf989sdaw03 leaking water from the ice maker trap

Customer Question

whirlpool wrf989sdaw03 leaking water from the ice maker trap door (the area of the flapper from the cabinet into the door). Water is leaking all all down the inside surface of the door and into the shelves under the ice bucket. Repair man had already replaced the evaporator (supposed lack of cooling) and put in an enhanced condensation abatement kit.

Dispenser Drips

Ice and water will continue to be dispensed for a few seconds after you release the dispenser pad. Wait a few seconds before removing the glass.

•Flush the water system. Air trapped in the water line will cause water to continue to flow from the dispenser.

•Check water supply pressure; check Reverse Osmosis (RO) system if applicable.

•Ice shavings may collect in dispenser chute and melt, which causes the dispenser to drip. Clean the ice delivery chute using a warm, damp cloth. Dry thoroughly.

Please read the question again. The water is leaking from INSIDE the cabinet, out of the area where the ice drops from the maker into the door bucket. The water is leaking from where the face plate of the INSIDE ice door snaps onto the front of the ice maker. There is no leak from where the ice/water is dispensed into a cup or glass.
