My refrigerator is leaking water under to bottom and I think it is coming from the freezer, because inside the freezer at the bottom it has an ice build up. I broke up the ice and removed it, now where is the line that I clean out? I have a Maytag: Serial 13047338yu and Model: PSD2350DRW?

There is no one solution to this. It come from a variety of ways. For example a crack in the defrost condensate pan. Or a leak in a water supply line. The way you described it is almost on a cycle basis so I believe it is more of the leaking condensate problem. I would like you to look inside the freezer and fresh food section bottom near crisper and look for condensate buildup inside these areas condensate in freezer would appear as too much frost on items in freezer and fresh food compartment like moisture collecting on walls and shelves. Do that and let me know what you see. Pull front kick plate in front off and pull away from wall. Remove rear cover on compressor area. I will return soon, Thanks, Sea Breeze
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.
Yes. Your defrost drain hole in the lower rear of the freezer is frozen over with ice. Turn off the fridge. Remove the shelves and bins from the freezer side. Break up any ice on the floor of the freezer and dispose of it. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice over the drain hole in the rear portion of the freezer. Once it is clear pour a 1/4 cup of bleach into the drain hole.
I hate to answer with a question but what type of valve and can you see water coming from rear wall of freezer or ice make is over flowing. If you would like my assistance please let me know. I will find the service manual but I think we both at this point will need to ask and answer.Thanks, Sez breeze
Is that the correct model number above your post?
the water for the dispenser (ice/water dispenser in the freezer door) comes from under the frige then up thru the bottom hinge of the freezer door .. it then goes inside the door up to the dispenser .. its a plastic hose and it has to twist near the hinge each time the door is opened .. thats where it usually breaks or develops a pin hole leak .. you can replace the whole hose or just the damaged section if that easier ... since the bottom freezer.hinge where that hose comes up thru, is at the position of your leak then i suspect thats your trouble ... ..also check the condensate pan to make sure its not full .. thats a flat pan under the fridge ..you can usually get acess to it by removing the front kick panel at the bottom of the frige .. if thats full then look for a door seal leak (damaged rubber seal) ... a broken seal or open door will allow moisture to condense inside the machine ..that runs down into the condensate pan where it normally evaporates .. but a problem (like open door) will fill it up to overflow in time ....
A bad freezer door seal causes condensation that freezes at the bottom of the unit. I realize you said the drip pan was full of ice, but if the drain is clogged, that will happen. If that unit has the pan at the very bottom, condensation can also contribute to this.
