Fridge was filling with water below the pull out drawer. Left it unpowered for an hour and pulled out the drawers and accessed the port and its just water sitting there on the drain port.

Do I need to access the back and clean out the lower end of the drain port? Anyone have photos on how to do that for this model?

I was able to use a mattress inflater blower to push the clog free and now it appears to be draining. Also useful to blow away the pooling water. Also some rubbing alcohol poured in to kill anything and melt ice.

Yes, you can get at the drain tube from the back of the refrigerator.

Here's the drain line assembly for your model:
Drain Hose W11084807


For others following your thread, This video shows you how to access to clear it out:


Good job clearing it out, yes kind of compressed it to blow it out works good.(y)

Thanks for the update!
