I cannot find info on the given model number so chose the ET8FTKXKQ02 unit.
Replacement parts for ET8FTKXKQ20 models | AppliancePartsPros.com

Some unit drain directly from the drip tray under the evaporator coils.
Others drain into a funnel like part at the top/back of the fresh food section and then out and down to the drip pan under the unit.
I cannot tell from the diagrams which this is but the position of the Item 24 in Section 1 should help you figure it out,

Sounds like drain tube is plugged so that the water from the defrost cycle cannot drain into the drain pan.

I would check that it is clear.
If plugged a turkey baster with warm water, an air compressor with low pressure or a wire can often be used to clear it.

Also check that it is not plugged with dust etc. at the drain pan end.
You might as well clean the condenser/compressor fan and the condenser coils while you are down there.

If it looks like stuff is growing in the tube I would flush it with a 10% bleach solution. This should kill the stuff and let you flush it out. You may have to do this several times, let it sit for 15 minutes or so between flushes.

Be careful that the drip tray does not overflow and empty the drip tral after you are done.

Be sure to unplug the unit while doing this.

My refrigerator has been leaking water inside it just started a week ago to access the drain inside do i have to remove the crisper draws then the lower panel on the bottom to get to the drain
No, see the above

also maybe the fridge is not level and is to forward
It should not cause this problem but I would level it or get it to lean slghtly to the back. This will help the doors seal and save money on electricity.
Also clean/check the condenser coils and fan under the unit, they also have a large effect on unit efficiency.

I have the setting on normal also its in a garage with no ac its 8o degrees could that be the problem

No but it will be expensive to run at this ambient temperature
