Re: Water leaking from bottom left freezer/dispenser side
Take the metal back panel off the inside of the freezer, exposing the cooling coils. Below the coils, at the very bottom of the freezer compartment you will find a small drain hole. (Presently covered over with ice) Use hot (not boiling) water and a turkey baster to melt the ice and force hot water into the drain hole until the water runs out the drain hole (and into the defrost drain pan under the refrigerator) on it's own. This should be a Fix-Ya for your refrigerator.

Your defrost drain line is clogged or frozen so the defrosted water is leaking into the freezer compartment and freezing into a ice layer in the next cooling cycle. Get your defrost drain line unclogged.
Mine was leaking from the front left freezer side. I removed the tray at the bottom and saw that there is a drain hole in the back. I removed the sheet of ice that was covering the drain hole and poured vinegar and hot water to unclog it. That was the problem all along! The drain hole was clogged causing the water to drip out of the front. Whew!
This leak , is coming from the defrost drain , inside the freezer section , at the back . The defrost drain is clogged with ice . Remove the bottom freezer crisper , and use a hairdryer to defrost the ice . You will see a drain hole where the defrost water is supposed to drain thru . Hot water helps defrost this hole . Once defrosted , use a small hose inserted into the drain hole , to blow thru , to remove built up debris , inside the unseen drain line .
That is from your defrost drain underneath the freezer coil. It is plugged up. get it unclogged by putting some wire down it or whatever you can use. It could just be frozen over. Sometimes the drain hole will get covered in ice and do that same thing. Either way, remove the back wall of the freezer, just a few screws and see if there is ice in there on the bottom. Defrost the ice and pour some water down the defrost drain
I am not sure if this is the same issue or not. the flap that closes after you have dispensed ice does not close or seal all the way. The gasket is worn down. the result is warm air get up into icemaker and warms ice and refreezes in one block so now the dispenser gets blocked. We had to replace the flap in the door. bought the part at an appliance part store (not sears) they were helpfull and looked up the part needed. Also a sheet of ice forms on the bottom of the freezer. When water is dispensed a small bit drips inside freezer in back and runs down to botom of freezer slowly forming a sheet of ice. Use a hair dryer to defrost and then you must unclog the drain in the back at the bottom of ffreezer to allow it to drian. Once we finally unclogged the drain we have not had any problems for about 2 years.
more than likely you have a frozen defrost drain look in the bottom of your freezer section there should be a depression there see if its just a big block of ice let me know if this is the case or not and ill tell you how to clear the drain if not then we will look at something else please dont rate me till were done
