I have used Superseal on systems with a leak I could not find and even on  systems that the customer would not spend what it cost to repair..and have not had a call back on them..

I have put on many dye dryers not had any trouble with them..

Could be , but its not. Those evaps are bad for leaking.Pump it down and recharge it and add some dye. I had one about 6 months ago.561 I think.

1. Refrigerant
2. Oil
Nothing I repeat nothing else.
Proper leak detection with refrigerant and dry charged Nitrogen. Thank You.  O0

Just don't tell Whirlpool, Nitrogen is a no no now.....  Dye check for them...  <sigh>

I found it ... it was a leak.. It was at the copper to aluminum tubing at the evaporator, the tech before me over heated the tubing ... He must have not protected the tubing well ,,, I use heat paste and a wet rag to keep the heat off it.
