Earlier I posted a question but was not clear enough on the problem. My Fridge leaks water ONLY when you try to dipense water. We unhooked the water line when this first started, thinking the hose had froze, but now it has been unhooked for about 6 months, now we are trying to REALLY fix the problem so our icemaker and water dispenser works. Ok, now when we hooked everything back up, and tried to dipense water again....water came out in the floor on the left back side of the fridge---can this be fixed?

Sounds like the drain to the drip pan is clogged -- maybe with ice.
Defrost water runs down to a drain in the bottom of the fridge and into a pan underneath where it evaporates.
Sounds like the defrost water is not reaching its final destination.
Here's the way the same problem was solved earlier today:
For those who have this problem with this model: The drip pan is in an open space on the back side of the refrigerator. There is a rubber spout that empties into it. But to clear clogs...you must take out the shelves from the freezer, unscrew and remove the back panel on the inside of the freezer. There you will see the water exit. Boiling water cleared it out.
"jennycub" sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine. very common problem( easy to detect. water on the floor of freezer compartment) as far as the other posting by" humblerumble", ive seen where the drain tube under the refig has pushed a hole into the drain pan under the refrig, in which case it will only leak after a defrost cycle, with the kickplate removed grab a flashlight and look under the unit for the drain pan as you pur water into the back of the freezer sect to trace water flow
