Question about Maytag Refrigerators
This CAN happen (and usually DOES) when your fridge is in dire need of a COMPLETE thawing. You'll need 24 hours to store your perishables. Open doors and UNPLUG and let it thaw. You CAN hurry the process with a hair dryer, but be sure #1: you use standard precaution against electrical shock if dripping water enters your hair dryer, and #2: DO NOT overdo use of the hair dryer and melt platic parts that'll make you sorry. :)

SOURCE: Water in Fridge
My own fridge had this problem and it turned out to be a blocked drain at the back of the fridge compartment, just below the cold plate. The water is supposed to condense on the plate and run down to a drip channel, and then through a tube onto the top of the compressor, where it evaporates.
On mine, the tube was blocked with gunge so the water spilled over onto the bottom of the compartment. I got a length of earth wire - the sort used for wiring UK domestic ring mains - and poked it down the tube to clear the gunge away. I then chased it through with some hot water and washing soda and it has been fine ever since.
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge.
If they do not, please give me more details so I can try to help you further.

SOURCE: water puddle under fridge
sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine
