I had a problem like yours, the auto defrost doesn't always turn off. On mine I replaced the sensor. it was a round sensor clipped to the top of the freezer condenser, kind of hard to get to to replace. inside the freezer at the top it has two wires. I ordered mine from sears parts. I don't know if thats your problem, but sounds like what happened to me.

Sounds like you have a frozen drain line. I would unplug the unit at let the drain line thaw. This would be the easiest way to rectify the issue. Leave both doors open for 24 hrs. Hope this helps _MJ_

An occasional water puddle appears below the freezer door. a thin layer of ice builds up on the floor of the freezer section.Any ideas?


The drain is plugged and instead of the water draining into the drain pan it's running into the freezer.Usually the owners manual can help with suggestions for clearing the drain depending on which model you have.

Ice accumulation on the bottom of the freezer


Your drain line is clogged, that is located behind the white wall inside of the freezer. The water comes from defrost cycle, that happens every 8-12 hours. You need to defrost it and snake it.

Water on floor from freezer side of Maytag side by side unit.


Yes I just had that happen to me. An appliance guy came over for my stove and I asked him if he could tell me why I wake up everyday to a puddle. He told me to take the baskets out unscrew the three screws and pull the panel off, then pour some hot water in it and use a turkey baster to blast the drain hole with. It worked. Sears repair man couldn't even figure that out when it was under warranty. Took me 15 minutes. Good Luck

Water in the floor


there is a drain hose that comes out of the bottom of the cabinet into a drain pan underneath your freezer take a look and see if that got pulled loose during your move. if it is in place then you most likely have a plugged drain. this can be cleaned fromt he inside at the botom. reomve the bottom basket and the shelf right above it. you will see ice build up on the floor of the freezer and and behind the cover. just defrost the ice you will uncover the drain hole flush warm water thru the line till it runs clear. good luck peyton

the drain in the back of the freezer is probably full of ice. you need to pull out panel and use heat from a blow dryer to unplug the drain. then take a small gauge copper wire long enough to extend into the drain a couple of inches and loop it around the black heating element then when it goes yhrough defrost it should keep this from reaccuring
