Use all the resources you can for help in repairing appliances. I have repaired this problem. The new kit does not come with 2 hoses. Only one. Replace the duck bill.

Got a call back on one of the first P-traps installed .
Little bubbles of ice was forming on the evaporator cover .
Near as I could tell the water trapped in the P was evaporating and due to the heat of the compressor.
Another contributing factor could be that her apartment was right on the shore of False Creek ( Pacific Ocean ) .
Whirlpool might have to re-engineer there final solution to the gummy duck bill grommet.

I've installed dozens of these new P-traps without a single call back. The critical part of the installation-- and the one, I suspect, that most servicers don't pay much attention to-- is the flush fit of the top part of the P-trap against the bottom of the cabinet. It is crucial that there be no air leaks in that area because the cold air will leak out of the freezer and cause ice plugs at that location.
