This is what it sounds like to me. The defrost system melts away the frost in the cooling coils every 6 or 8 hours. This water goes into a tray at the bottom of the freezer compartment. there is a drain spout in the bottom of the tray. The water then goes through that into a plastic drip pan. This sits behind the vent below the doors. While the fridge is running, the water evaporates out into the the room. If the pan is missing, or cracked for some reason, the water goes onto the floor.
And that's were the water is coming from. The Fridge is not broken.
With the model number of the fridge, probably located on a placard inside the fresh food compartment, or possibly the freezer compartment, you can order a new drip pan from a parts supply house for something like $25.00 The easiest thing to do would be to put in it's place an inexpensive aluminum pan of sorts. that usually will do the trick and save money.
I hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

Check the fan located at lower back of the fridge to make sure it is free from dust and lint

remove crisper bins and look for the drain tube . it must be clogged . as water is supposed to drain to the evaporation tray under the fridge .

No ice or water on door


On top of the fridge are plastic covers over the door hinges. The side with ice/water dispenser should have a wiring harness underneath the plastic cover with a wiring harness connector. It may be loose from opening and closing the door causing a poor electrical connection. Try unplugging and reconnect.

Maytag mbf2258xeq leaks but it's not connected to a water line. Where's the water coming from?


water is coming from condensation from the compressor coil. usually this will evaporate fast enough to not puddle on the floor. check the plastic line running down the back of the fridge to see that it's not broken or pulled out. while you have the fridge out, clean the coil by blowing it out with compressed air and clean the pan under the compressor as best you can. Hope this helps

I have a Maytag MSD2432GR side by side. I am finding water pooling in the bottom of the Refrigerator side, as well as finding periodic puddles in front of the fridge. What is the cause and how do I fix...


IT MAY NOT BE LEVEL. the fridge has condensation that builds up on it but usually evaporates. you may also have a pinhole size leak in the icemaker line behind the fridge.

Water line for ice maker/cold water leaking underneath


Check your connection at the bottom of the freezer door, behind the kick plate. Also pull out your crisper drawers and check the cold water reservior. If this only leaks when the water dispenser is pressed I would try to track the line from the bottom of the freezer door back to where it goes into the refrigerator (behind the crispers) to the cold water reservior.
If you absolutely have to lay this fridge down lay it on it's BACK only. Also be sure to let it stand upright for at least a half an hour before you start it back up.
Good luck with this!!

Maytag side by side fridge...water dispenser problem


If the water is visible in the front, more than likely the hose has become disconnected from the door, if you look at the lower left hand corner you should see the hose come from underneath the machine and attach to the door via a plastic quick connect, it is just a push lock connection. You may have to pull of the toe kick and the left hand end cap depending on the model to see this.

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.
