The ice maker in my Whirlpool freezer is constantly leaking water, forming an icicle down to ice bin and making a huge mess in the ice bin. It does not leak and make a mess if I turn it off by lifting the overflow bin lever. Otherwise it leaks and makes the mess.

Hi,

The problem is the ice maker telling the water inlet valve to overfill, over time the module circuit strip wears and tells the ice maker to overfill itself.

Here's the ice maker for your model you can order:
Manufacturer part number D7824706Q
