SOURCE: leaking water frm bottom
with this amount of regularity i would have to believe you have a rather large ice ball on the very bottom of the freezer. if this is true you have a clogged defrost drain... you can fix it free
take out the bottom 3 shelves break away all the ice care full its plastic take out the 1/4 bolts holding in the back panel
you will see the coil.
you need to defrost this completely, then comes the fun part
you need to defrost the whole thing the tube is dead center that will need to be cleasred as well,
if your really into it you can pull the unit out take off the back and check the tube from there as well
id be willing to bet, there is a small srew in the tube but thats another story it will come out
once clear you should be ok
you can also take the duck bill off the tube end that sits in the pan just make sure you put the tube back in the pan,........ close it up your done
if there is no obvious blockage you have another problem ,,,, but now it will show up

your freezer cabinet need to get all out also the ice machine,and open the back wall
there is a drain hole in the bottom middle of it make sure it is clean, and if you pure water they go all the way
through the pip to the drain pan next to the compressor.

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use
and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater
comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost
drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the
freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.
Take a bare copper wire and wrap it around a fin near the heater and put the other end a few inches down the drain. The heat convection may prevent it from freezing.

Testimonial: "Super fast feedback!"
You have a clogged defrost drain. The problem is fixed by unplugging unit from wall, open both doors, blow fan for 24 hours to SAFELY remove the ice covering the drain hole. If you use ANY other method, you may regret it. Once ice is melted, remove debris that is likely blocking the small drain hole, if no debris in drain pan, direct some high pressure air down the drain to block the debris INSIDE the tubing. Furthermore, its a good idea to make the drain hole in the drain pan larger, as sometimes a bubble of water can freeze in the drain hole, and ice could be the cause of your blockage from that bubble.

I assume you mean water leaking on floor of bottom freezer? There should be a small hole in floor in back to drain defrosted water down to pan under unit. This line might be clogged with food or frozen water. Carefully pour some hot/boiling water down tube to clear. You should see it empty into pan under unit where fan evaporates it.
