My kenmore frig side by side did the same I flushed the freezer drain like the instruction book says but it leaked on the floor after A week.
I pulled out the frig unplugged it in the back I removed the bottom black cardboard grille and vacuumed the underneath and removed the black drain tube and flushed water through it and put it back that solved the problem and took about 15 minutes to do I hope this helps people who are having repeat trouble.

Re: refrigerator

It did work but after a while it happened again. I keep the freezer temp to med. It did start after installing the ice maker. So now the water is shut off to the ice maker. I removed the bottom panel in the freezer held by 2 screws and removed the sheet of ice gently. Will castor oil in the drain hose help? Thanks for your help!

Re: refrigerator

This is the most common thing on this site for refers. Its the drain line that takes water from the freezer when it defrosts to the pan underneath the appliance. You need to locate the drain line and remove the obstruction, sometimes its frozen so a short thaw may be helpful. The way I do it is I find the drain hose at the bottom of the fridge where it drains into the pan. I then connect a hose to it and blow compressed Co2 into the line. When there is no back pressure, I know its clear.

My Maytag side-by-side refrigerator/freezer Leak

There is a pan and drain hose under the freezer coil that is there to catch any water when the freezer goes into defrost. I feel strongly that is where you will find your leak.
I hope this helps.

Clean out the defrost drain. There is a drain in the freezer that lets all the defrost water run under the fridge. If that gets clogged then all the water runs into the freezer and can even leak onto the floor
