I'm going to assume this is the type of reefer with the freezer drawer on the bottom and two refrigerator doors on top...…
Open the freezer drawer and see if there is a puddle of water/ice in the bottom of the freezer compartment. Also check along the back wall of the freezer compartment and check for ice buildup at the joint in the back wall. Evidence the condensate from the evaporator is not making it to the evap pan.
The early models of those reefers had a duckbill valve for the condensate to drain thru when it auto defrosts. The duckbill drain plugs and the condensate runs into the freezer compartment and eventually to the floor.
There is actually a field service kit to replace the duckbill valve with a proper tubing connection with a p trap to route the water to the evaporation pan.
A google search will yield much info on Whirlpool refrigerator leaking water onto floor...…..
Our Maytag (built by Whirlpool) did the same thing and the service kit cured it.
