Check the stand pipe for the drain hose it must be higher than the water in the machine or it will just run out should be 30 inches or higher. I just worked on one with this same problem the drain was about a foot high it would fill and run out almost as fast as it came in.The pump will pump it out when it drains.

Frost-free freezers have a cycling "defrost" of the cooling coils. When this kicks in, the water is supposed to drain down through a small tube at the bottom of the freezer compartment.
When puddling begins, it's a good indication that this tube is blocked. Often, the blockage is ice. Sometimes it can be a foreign object (a kernel of corn, a pea... something loose).
Depending on you levels of confidence and expertise, you can do the following:
Boil some water on the stove, and use a turkey baster or a large irrigation syringe to add hot water to the drain hole. (You can try pouring it in, but you don't want to risk burning yourself or adding too much hot water which might cause cracking). Keep doing this incrementally, until - hopefully - the water that you add starts draining.
If you're successful, then use a hair dryer to remove the ice on the coils, then wipe everything dry & reassemble. With luck, you're done.
One thing I've done is taken a stiff piece of copper wire (about 6"), stuck it down the drain hole, and wrapped the upper end around the coils. When the warming defrost cycle kicks in, the copper wire (which conducts heat) helps to melt whatever ice might be forming in the drain.
If this doesn't work, you might need to move to the next step - replacing the defrost module or the timer. Good luck!
