Question about Refrigerators
The water should be collected after defrost and routed down to the bottom section of the refrigerator into a collection pan that is normally in the airstream of the condenser cooling fan. The water typically evaporates into the atmosphere.
Click HERE for information on your refrigerator to include a component breakdown. Under the heater, the water should drain through the hole and then through a drain tube and into the bottom of your refrigerator to be evaporated.
I hope you find this to be helpful. I will look forward to hearing back from you. :-)

Ok above is a manual this should show you what to do. To my mind, you shouldn't have ANY real amount, say anything over a 100-200 mL of water on the floor or anywhere else for that matter. But in saying that, they do have "Catch Trays" underneath, I guess. If you cannot "Fix" it, and perhaps that's just the way it is, then, as a "Fix" you should get some sort of Funnel, attach a pipe to it an run it outside, Push the Funnel, into the "Hole" cut it off flush, seal it all around with GOOD waterproof, sealer/glue. At least for now, the water will just drip outside, into say into a drain. But really you need to find out "Why" it is making even this modest amount of water. It may just be a "Watery" machine though. I have done similar thing before to remedy situations similar, with Fridges, Freezers, Cool Rooms, & Air Conditioners. Anyway use the Service manual, and maybe try my Water routing idea. I just used about 10' of clear plastic tubing about 1/2" (Whatever fits on the small funnel) & a small Plastic.Funnel, it works great every time, and gets that smelly water away, outside where it belongs.

It sound as if your missing your drain tube in that spot where you say that quarter size hole is and this should lead down to the defrost water collection pan you say you never had either
