I had this problem and it was due to a poor door seal. Check around the area where the ice is forming to see if there is air leaking from the freezer.

Have had this problem also. One problem was that I would toss my spare change on the top of the fridge, and somehow, a coin would end up laying on the seal at the top, preventing the door from closing all the way.
The next time, the wife had put a can of pop in the freezer and forgot about it. In cleaning up the subsequent explosion, I took the racks out and put the wrong one back in the wrong spot, once again keeping the door from closing all the way, but close enough where it wasn't noticable.
The latest leak, according to the repairman on the phone is quite common. For whatever reason, the drain on the inside of the freezer was blocked by ice. The only solution is to defrost the freezer to clear out the ice jam. In my case, turning off the freezer also turns off the cooling in the fridge, so keep the fridge closed as much as possible during the defrost.

Water leaking from front base of freezer


Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. (hint: use turkey baster with hot water) Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

It is leaking water out of the bottom. It does not appear to be coming from inside the fridge or freezer. It does start on the bottom on the freezer side.


Without seeing your refrigerator I can only imagine that you have a drain pan leak below refrigerator, defrost condensate drain line loose or missing the drain pan, frozen over drain opening inside rear wall of freezer or the defrost condensate line is blocked somewhere along its route to the condensate collection tray below refrigerator.

Water leaking underneath refrigerator/water freezing in bottom of freezer


I'm dealing with the same problem right now with the same refrigerator. The cold water tank (for the front dispenser) has a hole in it that leaks every time someone dispenses water from the front door. You will find the water tank behind the top slide-out drawer in the fridge. The leaked water flows down one of the water tubes through a hole in the bottom of the fridge and onto the floor. I'll bet you have the same problem. Good Luck.

Maytag side by side


I have a Maytag side by side MSD2456D and water is running out bottom of freezer door onto floor. There is ice on the freezer coils and there is what looks like a drain tube with a plastic wrapping. I think water is leaking there and freezing on coils until it defrosts ice.Water then appears to run down inside of freezer and out bottom door seal.

Does any one have a suggestion on repair parts. How about owners/repair manual
