It could be one of three things. The door front water dispenser hose is cracked or broken. The freezer is defrosting and the base catch pan is not in place or you have a spill in the fridge you are not aware of. I will assume it is not the latter, so you need to pull the fridge out from the wall and check the area beneath it from an approx on the leak. Check the hoses for the water dispenser by running your fingers along them and if they are wet, you have found your leak. You need just replace the hose and it will solve your problem. If this is not the case, check the base pan for a hole. It is normal for some condensation to come out of your fridge, not a lot, but some. Check if the pan has a leak in it and you can replace if necessary. I would be real inclined to think the water dispenser is causing the problem.

By the way your model number is GI7FVCXWY

Water inside refrigerator


Because your model has an evaporator located inside the fresh food compartment it also will have a drain opening below that evaporator. This is a common problem with these dual evaporator models that have drain blockage caused by ice or gunk blocking the drain and causing water to flow below the crisper drawers. Sea Breeze

Water leaking and ice in bottom shelf of freezer


Chances are you have a bad seal around the door if it's leaking from the inside which causes the ice to form as well, or if it's leaking from under the freezer you lave a bad heating element that evaporates the water collected in the pan under the freezer or you have a clogged hose that goes to the pan under the freezer which also causes the ice to form because the water has no place to go. Defrost and try to find a way to blow out the hose that goes from your freezer to the pan under the freezer and that should take care of your problem.
