Question about Maytag Refrigerators

2 Answers

I have a Maytag side by side refrigerator model MSD2356AEA purchased April 1999. Recently is has been leaking a small amount of water twice a day from the front of the freezer at the bottom. I am wondering if it has something to do with the defrost cycle and the water is not making it to the pan for evaporation - perhaps a clog/blockage of some sort. If so, how do I clear out the blockage? Thanks!

    I have already been to that website and read all that. As far as I can figure, it doesn't tell me EXACTLY how to clear the blockage or where it is. Please advise.

    I have already tried checking the repairclinic website and need to know exactly where and how to clear out the blockage so the water gets to the defrost pan.
    Thanks.

    What suggestions do you have for me to try?

  • lizard67 Sep 02, 2010

    I tried this and believe it was the problem. Thanks! There was quite a bit of ice built up over the drain hole so I used a hair dryer to melt it and then hot water once I got most of the ice melted.

    Go to back wall of freezer , back panel, at bottom behind panel is a catchall under the coils.

    You will see a hole in this catchall. Something resilient and long will push down into the drain hole.

    use hot water if all else fails until the water disappears down the drain

    Ironically, I had the exact same problem yesterday and i used hot water and compressed air to blow out the drain.

Matag Mod. MSD2554ARA leaking water on the floor


If the water is showing on the freezer side, more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt. Also note on the maytags these days they put a rubber piece called a duck bill on the bottom half of the drain which will also cause this over time. To access this piece you'll have to pull the machine from the wall and remove the lower panel and find the plastic drain and remove the duck bill.

Water leaking underneath refrigerator/water freezing in bottom of freezer


I'm dealing with the same problem right now with the same refrigerator. The cold water tank (for the front dispenser) has a hole in it that leaks every time someone dispenses water from the front door. You will find the water tank behind the top slide-out drawer in the fridge. The leaked water flows down one of the water tubes through a hole in the bottom of the fridge and onto the floor. I'll bet you have the same problem. Good Luck.
