Water coming out from under refrigerator

Model 78094 bottom freezer refrigerator. Soaked up water to prevent damage to cabinets. Moved refrigerator out but found no water drainage. Drip pan had a quarter inch of water in it. Drain hose to drip pan was not securly attached to drain outlet.

Since drain pan was not full, and drain line wasn't attached well, I suspect water draining from drain outlet went mostly on floor rather than into drip pan. What is the drain draining? Why would it drain several quarts of water all of a sudden? How often does it drain, and how much should it drain?

There is nothing holding the drain line to the drain outlet. Both are too flimsy to use a hose clamp on. How am I supposed to attach drain line to drain outlet so it doesn't leak?

The drain line is a very thin wall blow-molded part with all kinds of convolutions, I assume intended to reinforce it but the material is too thin for that to help A length of hose would be better than the drain line, but attaching it to the drain outlet is still the problem.
