Question about Maytag 25.6 cu. ft. Wide-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water

Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it

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

    I also have the same problem of water freezing up in the bottom of the freezer can anyone tell me where the drain is in this maytag side by side?

    Our Wide by Side is getting ice build up on the coils. We have to remove the back and thaw it out, talk about a giant pain! We purchased this 5 years ago and I am greatly disappointed to say the least!!!!!!!!! I am going to try the solution I found on line, allow for more venting, and hope that this solves our problem.

    I have the exact same problem. There is several inches of ice that forms at the bottom of my freezer and water pools on my floor. I have completely defrosted my freezer and it is still happening. What should I try?

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.

SOURCE: Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it

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

Sometimes ice melts in ice maker. Water drips down and refreezes.


There is a heater built into the ice maker bottom to help release ice cubes from the machine. Under normal conditions the heater only come on when the ice maker starts to run and then jambs against the frozen cubes. When it stalls and jambs against the frozen ice cubes, the heater comes on to melt the cubes enough. I think you have a defective ice maker and the heater is coming on to much or at the wrong time, Since your temps go back to normal with the ice maker turned off, I am almost sure thats your problem.

Ice built up on bottom of freezer then dripping down front


Probably a clogged drain. Use a pipe cleaner to unclog, then a turkey baster with hot water to clean out anything else. Then when the drain is clear, pour a weak bleach solution down the drain to kill the mold that probably caused the blockage If possible remove all food and let it sit unplugged for a day or two. This will clear some defrost problems.
