Question about Maytag Refrigerators
Did you notice any moisture on the main cabinet at the area the doors seal against? Some models have a heater imbedded in the cabinet edge at the door seal to keep the metal cabinet from sweating much like a glass does when filled with water and ice cubes. If the heater is not on the metal sweats and leaks down to the floor. Some refrigerators have an option switch called and energy saver that can turn that heater on or off. Off is OK for winter but needs to be on in humid weather if house is not air conditioned. Heater could also be burned out (bad).

try checking the tube that water drains out , it could be plugged with crumbs or old partials of food and causing the problem, This has happened with my fridge at one time , affecting the defrost cycle of the freezer and dripping water out of the door, The tube was located under the crisper in the back of the inside of my fridge, Hope this solves your problem

Your drain is frozen up and so every time unit goes into defrost the water refreezes in the freezer's bottom. You either have to shut fridge off completely and let it dethaw or use hot water and an ice pick to hurry up the process. The drain is located in the very back of freezer. You will have to pull out the bottom drawer to see it. Good luck

SOURCE: freezer malfunction
Drain hole is clogged behind the panel that covers the coils. I found a peice of solder blocking mine. Water was freezing on the bottom of the freezer and leaking out to the floor.
