Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue so do not rate me until we are done thanks.

Your defrost drain line is plugged up, you need top clear it out so the drain water goes down the drain. Here is a video to assist you with that repair.

This is a different model refrigerator than I have. My ice maker is on top in the refrigerator section, upper left top.

Yes but the issue is the same and they come apart the same. Is the water leaking in the refrigerator section?

Not that I can tell,,,it seems to be from the bottom. I can see a layer of ice below the freezer drawer though on the bottom shelf if that has anything to do with it?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 2 years ago.

Yes that video is what you need to do to fix it, you need to remove the drawer and defrost the drain line. That video is pretty much exactly what you need to do to fix the issue.
