After replacing the water valve, you need to bleed the air from the system by running about 2 gallons through the dispenser. You'll still have some air in the ice maker line. It can take as much as 3 harvest cycles before the water gets to the ice maker. After replacing the valve it usually takes about 24 hours for the ice maker starts producing ice.

Ok got the air bled off and it started making ice again but it’s also overfilling and freezing in ice holder. Any suggestions ? This is the original problem and reason water valve was changed.

OK, it's overfilling the ice maker and the ice maker controls the fill time so replace the ice maker.
