So here is my saga. In the door water dispenser flow was slow and stuttered, icemaker working fine. I changed the water solenoid valve which fixed the water dispenser flow but the icemaker began to drip water into the ice bin the eventually into the door dispenser area where it will overflow onto the floor. I assumed a faulty valve so the supplier sent me a second valve which I installed but icemaker still dripping.

I have removed the icemaker and sitting in my sink I can fill the tray with no dripping and no signs of mechanical damage or hole in the tray area. I assume the water is continuing to drip into the tray or it is overfilling each cycle but it continues to drip the entire time between cycles.

I have good water pressure and have replaced the filter but still dripping. The attached picture shows the area of the drip where I purposely overfilled the tray area. I'm out of ideas and really don't want to pay for a service call, help.

You are getting defective water inlet valves, I've replaced hundreds of these in my 34 year appliance repair career and none ever leaked again.

Order the OEM water inlet valve and it won't leak.

Here's the OEM water inlet valve for your model:
Water Inlet Valve WPW10349187


Here's the video to replace it:
