My Kenmore/LG French door ice maker appears to be leaking. I performed a test cycle and watched it fill, but I can't see any leaking occurring. The water seems to be building up mostly along the bottom seal of the ice maker door. Any ideas where else the leak could be coming from?

Check for any ice in the fill tube. If there's ice, replace the water valve:

I didn't notice any ice in the fill tube, but I took all the housing apart and there was quite a bit behind the back "wall" and underneath as well. I'm not sure how long it's been building up, but I watched it fill again and don't see any leaking so I'm stumped.

Ok, the ice problem seems to have stopped. After thinking about it, it seems to have begun shortly after changing water filter. But now ice maker manual test works without issue, but then doesn't seem to continue making ice. There's ice in the tray, but it isn't cycling anymore. If I do a manual cycle again, it dumps ice, fills tray, ice freezes, but seems to be hanging at this point. Thoughts?
