OK Sensei Samurai...heres the problem.

I have a Whirlpool Model ET8FTKXKQ 18 cu ft refirgerator, purchased new in 2002. I've never had a problem with it...until now.

I noticed that water started collecting on shelves. At first I thought it was a leaking water bottle. I cleaned it up, and continued on....then I noticed it was doing it again...so I started to investigate further. It seems that water is dripping from holes in the diffuser and cover (I am getting the part names from a parts diagram, so they should be accurate).

I am assuming it is a clogged line or something in the system, where the water is backing up, and not flowing to the drip pan.

Question is where do I start my quest for a fix...what needs to be done?

That model number is not coming up, please recheck it.  If this is an 18 cubic foot top freezer there is a service pointer about this that addresses a moisture problem.

Hmm, thats weird it doesn't come up....here is the web page I went to for the parts diagram...

http://www.appliance...model_id=265694

It is an 18 cu ft top freezer model.

No ideas other than the service pointer? I hate to call for a service call if all I have to do is clean out a tube or drip cup kind of thing....

Did not come up in the Sears data base even adding the 1 in front of the 8 since this an 18 cubic foot unit so would have to be 18 after the first 2-3 letters.
