This refer is leaking from the clear hose that runs up from a valve that is the bottom and is blue which is next to red valve which has a black hose attached to it. No change in function except that water is all over the floor I've had to turn off the water. No moisture in the drain pan

If the leak is on the refrig water valve where the wall water line connects to , then use a 1/2" wrench and tighten the fitting on the water valve itself . If the leak is on the plastic tubing at the bottom of the refrig water valve , pull up on the small white ring while pushing down on the plastic tube to remove it from the valve . Cut off about 1 " of the tubing and reinsert it into the valve with pretty good pressure to be sure it is inserted completely .
That sounds like the water valve that receives water from your house plumbing and sends it to your icemaker and to the water dispenser. In addition to the hose connections, there are likely some electrical connections on it.
The valve should be readily available at any of the appliance parts places that sell on the internet. It should be fairly easy to replace. Most of those are pretty accessible.
It sounds like someone has repaired this hose , due to the connectors . There should be no connectors except for 1 , below the freezer door . This hose can get hot from the compressor heat , and break .
My suggestion , would be to replace the water resivoir in the refrig section , behind the bottom crispers . This resevoir has a hose that goes completely to the water valve , without any connectors , and a hose that goes to the coupling under the freezer door , for the water dispensor . If you remove the bottom kick plate , the hose from the door , goes about 8 " to the coupling which connects to the line from the resevoir .
There is no connector . The plastic line pushes into the valve . If enough line is there , remove the short piece from the valve by pushing in on the white ring while pulling out on the broken line , and insert the main line into the valve with a little force . Check for leak by using water dispensor.
Two things might be happening. One is the line to the fridge is leaking, this line come thru the floor or wall to the bottom and hooks up to a water valve, it may just need tightening. The other problem is you will have a hose that runs from the filter down in behind the crisper drawers to the bottom and coils up here to hold water for cold use. it then runs thru the bottom pan out to the front, to the bottom door hinge on the freezer side up the door to the dispencer. Check along the hose for a pin hole look at the bottom hinge area first, things bump into it here and can damage the plastic cover.
unscrew the back panel and look if the plastic hose for the water (on the left side, goes to the blue/red valve block) is broken.
If it is then you can buy a silicon tube or hose in a hardware store which fits on both ends (measure the diameter) you also need to buy two metal rings with a screw (don't know the name of these) which you can put over the connection to tighten it.
The old hose has become very brittle in my case and this solved the issue
The part number for the valve for a pss26msrss is:
WR57X10032 it is around $45.00-$50.00. There are several look ups available but you need a complete model number that you will find on the refrigerator usually inside upper fresh food section. you can order at repairclinic.com, sears .com ... or you can google appliance parts and see what you come up with. You might also try a local appliance store. Good Luck.
The water line is broken somewhere from the water dispencer all the way down to the water valve. I usually find that it is broken next to the water valve. Hint: Water valve is blue and located behind the fridge in the compressor department. Water line is 1/4inch clear tube that is probaly now a "yellowish" color. Easy to spot, easy to fix, especially if located next to water valve...
In back of the refrigerator behind a removable panel you will find a hose going into the drain pan under the refrigerator. Check and make sure there is no obstruction in the hose which would back up water into the freezer. After the drain hose is cleared the freezer should be defrosted and ice cleared from the drain area in the back. You can direct some hot water with some bleach in it through the drain to insure it flows into the pan.
