Question about Maytag 25.6 cu. ft. Wide-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water
My Maytage side by side has water dripping down in the freezer and it builts up with ice on the bottom. I took off the back panel inside the freezer and the drip pan under the coils was full of ice. I thawed it out but 4 days later water was coming out of it and forming ice on the bottom of the freezer again??
Ours too. Same deal. About every second day water coming puddling out of your freezer (wide-by-side model).
This fridge has been crap since we purchased it and this is just a new problem in a series of previous ones. Maytag WIDE by SIDE - water leaks into freezer and ends up frozen mess in bottom of freezer. I took the back panel off but don't recognize any frozen drain hose. More details please. Thank You
We had a similar problem. It ended up being a frozen pea that fell down into the defrost drain and was blocking the water from draining out each time the freezer defrosted.

A bad freezer door seal causes condensation that freezes at the bottom of the unit. I realize you said the drip pan was full of ice, but if the drain is clogged, that will happen. If that unit has the pan at the very bottom, condensation can also contribute to this.

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over
